Bathroom Wars

Going Back To Egypt

Feb 16, 2017

I am rereading the book of Numbers. As the title implies, there are a lot of numbers found here – lists of Israelite tribes and census enumerations for example. There are also portions of the law being given. But there

Some Sanity on the US Entry Restrictions

Feb 2, 2017

Terrorism in Melbourne, Again

Jan 20, 2017

By now most people know that a 26-year-old man ran down innocent men, women and children with a car in downtown Melbourne. The only thing more shocking than this is the refusal by the authorities – once again – to

Islam, Child Brides, and the West

Oct 31, 2016

We have various laws against paedophilia, child abuse, and sexual assault in the West. In the area of sexuality, children are especially protected by law – and rightly so. But increasingly all that is being ignored if not overturned as

Courageous Women Standing Up For Our Children

Oct 28, 2016

When something is really bad, it needs to be discussed – and discussed often. Thus this is my 25th article on the so-called Safe Schools Coalition. In my previous articles I have detailed the many mega-problems with this pro-homosexual indoctrination

“Just As I Am”

Sep 13, 2016

I had various opportunities to hear an American lay preacher and student of revival, Harry Conn last century. He often bemoaned modern evangelicalism and the watered down gospel it offered. He would discuss how our contemporary evangelistic meetings were often

Identity Madness, Education, and the PC Police

Jul 20, 2016

Independence Day

Jul 4, 2016

Brexit: The Fallout

Jun 24, 2016

Just as soon as I finished writing my first article on the big Brexit win, it has already become dated. The repercussions just keep pouring in. Since then Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned (to take effect in October), stock

Homosexuality, Islam and Christianity

Jun 15, 2016

Homosexuality is condemned in all three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. While there are some similarities found on this issue in all three, there are also some major differences. Here I wish to focus on just one aspect of
