Identity Madness, Education, and the PC Police

Jul 20, 2016

OK, let’s cut to the quick: the revolutionaries of the left have declared war on everything. They are so intent on destroying Western civilisation and its Judeo-Christian underpinnings that they are quite happy to wreak havoc everywhere and on everyone.

The Death of Christian Higher Education

Dec 14, 2015

OK, one rather clueless dhimmi does not make an entire institution bad, but one sure has to wonder why such a person is allowed to stay. I refer to America’s most prestigious and well-known Christian liberal arts college, Wheaton College

Education Wars: The Battle for Our Children

Sep 4, 2012

There is perhaps no greater battleground than that of the education arena. He who can educate (or indoctrinate) our children will win not only our children but the future. For centuries we have known of the crucial importance of education,

Public Education’s Assault On Our Children

Mar 8, 2011

These are scary days to have our kids in public schools. Most of these schools have long ago ceased being places where the three R’s are taught, and have instead become hothouses of radical agendas and PC indoctrination. Brainwashing, not

Thoughts on Islam and Australia

Apr 14, 2008

The issue of Muslims living in Australia is part of a bigger, broader debate about such things as multiculturalism, immigration, Australian values, the war on terror, social cohesion, and so on. The thoughts presented here largely spring from the context

Nice – The Islamists Have Already Won

Jul 16, 2016

There is only one thing as predictable as the regular Islamic jihadist attacks, and that is the brainless wonders in the West who defend to the death Islam and make excuses for the terrorists. It happens every time. Now with

Orlando: Homosexual Pride and Prejudice

Jun 15, 2016

So a homosexual Muslim slaughters 50 other homosexuals, and it is all the fault of conservatives and Christians. Yes, of course – that makes perfect sense to me. How could it be otherwise? It is all THEIR fault. That is

What Academic Tolerance?

May 9, 2016

That our Western universities are almost completely dominated by the secular left is something many of us have been claiming, and documenting for quite some time now. I have often written about how academic freedom, diversity of opinion, and genuine

On Choosing a Religion

Apr 26, 2016

This title may seem a bit odd, and there would be some good reasons for that I suppose. Firstly, most people – in the West at least – are likely more concerned about what sort of coffee they might buy

The West’s War against Faith and Freedom

Apr 2, 2016

The West developed largely as a result of the Judeo-Christian worldview, and it was known for centuries as the defender of free speech, as the defender of religious liberty, and as the defender of freedom of conscience, and so on.

Dismantling the Trump Myths, Part One

Mar 31, 2016

The cult of Trump has dished up more nonsense, falsehoods and flip-flops than I have seen from any recent presidential candidate. Despite the fact that Trump is a life-long progressive, and one who has supported and financed leftist and Democrat

Our Regressive Progressives

Feb 27, 2016

Leftists like to call themselves “progressives”. They think all their radical social agenda items are a sign of moving forward, of progress. But the truth is just the opposite. They really want to take us backwards. Their vision of the

The Only Hope for the West

Feb 18, 2016

Leaders come and go and nations come and go. God can use both for his purposes. Think of a Moses, or the judges (as in the book of Judges), or Esther, or even a pagan king like Cyrus of Persia

Our Tolerance Censors at Work

Oct 7, 2015

As has been pointed out on these pages time and time again, it seems that those who scream the loudest about tolerance and diversity are those who are actually the least tolerant and diverse. We get this all the time

Apostasy’s Bitter Fruit

Oct 6, 2015

Sin leads to more sin, and error leads to more error. When we reject God and his Word – even if claiming to represent him – we begin the steep descent into increasing rebellion, idolatry and apostasy. We have the

A Tale of Two Terrorists

Oct 4, 2015

Actually my title is not quite accurate. While I will speak of two folks – and two ideologies – only one is a terrorist, while the other has been declared to be a terrorist by the Australian government. I refer

More Islamic and Homosexual Sharia

Jun 23, 2015

In an earlier piece I noted the frightening similarities between the Islamic war on faith, family and freedom, and the homosexual war on faith, family and freedom. The attempt to push Islamic sharia law throughout the West is destroying democracy

The Death of Western Universities

May 16, 2015

There is no question that contemporary education in the West is in a bad way. The crisis in our classrooms, especially at the university level, is simply indicative of the moral crisis in the West. Moral relativism, political correctness, and
