Dealing With the New Trans-Madness

Oct 24, 2015

The recent announcement that Bruce Jenner will be named “Woman of the Year” highlights the fact that a war on reality has been declared, and insanity now rules our elites – at least in the West. And the entire transgender

Faith, Foundations, and National Survival

Dec 4, 2012

A nation cut adrift from its own history and identity will not long last. The traditions, beliefs, values and heritage of a nation can be undermined through neglect, revisionism and direct attack. Those seeking to overthrow a culture know they

The Death of Planned Parenthood?

Feb 19, 2011

Given that Planned Parenthood is one of the greatest promoters of death around the globe, it is fitting that we may be witnessing the death of this nefarious organisation. If not its death, we are certainly seeing its long-overdue meltdown

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

Porn Harms: Just Ask Those in the Industry

Feb 5, 2016

At the moment there are several government inquiries being held in Australia about porn, young people, and sexualisation. And overseas people are beginning to wake up to the very real dangers of pornography as well. For example, last month a

On Leaving Church, Revisited

Dec 12, 2015

An article written a year ago which was just one of many penned by me on a daily basis has turned out to be quite a showstopper. Indeed, the reaction was a big surprise to me, as I really did

Marriage Wars, Truth Wars, and Tolerance Wars

Aug 26, 2015

When you don’t have solid answers, arguments and facts to make your case, then simply demonising and shouting down opposing voices is always a neat way to proceed. And this is the normal operating procedure for the homosexual activists and

Australian Marriage Wars

Aug 12, 2015

If I were to have entitled this, “Australian Breathing Wars” most folks would have rightly said, “What!?” Why in the world would you fight over breathing? We all breathe, and it is silly in the extreme to even debate it.

Thanking the Saints

Jun 2, 2015

Anyone who is aware of the Christian scene in the West today realises that there is much amiss with the contemporary church. It seems so far removed from the early church in passion, purity, progress and purpose. One wonders if

Calling Out the Climate Alarmists

Oct 28, 2014

While the climate alarmists and their supporters in the mainstream media continue to dish up their doom and gloom scenarios, more sober voices are making it clear that this may be one of the biggest scams of our lifetime. It

Christians, Compromise and Carnality

Aug 12, 2014

That huge numbers of Christians today are selling out big time concerning their faith is not surprising. We were warned about this 2000 years ago. Jesus and the disciples made it perfectly clear that many would abandon the faith, succumb

On Books, Reading, and Christianity

May 10, 2014

OK, there is not much new one can say about books. They have been around for quite a while now. A couple of millennia ago King Solomon could say this about them: “Of making many books there is no end,

Rebutting the Climate Alarmism Ideologues

Mar 1, 2014

A defining feature of contemporary Western culture is the establishment and defence of certain ideological shibboleths that dare not be gainsayed. These PC orthodoxies are enforced with all the fanaticism of any religious cult, and those who dare to resist

Child Discipline: Here We Go Again

Jul 26, 2013

It seems at least once a year the social engineers come out of the woodwork and demand that parents no longer be able to discipline their own children. They want to turn every rap on the hand or backside into

The Islamic Kingdom of Britain

Jun 9, 2013

I and others have been warning for years now that the once Christian West is quickly dissipating, with a muscular Islam easily overcoming the effeminate and spineless Christian churches. Everywhere we see Islam on the rise and Christianity on the
