Let Me Explain Hate To You

Jan 29, 2015

The Crisis of the American Church

Feb 11, 2015

I hate to say it, but it grieves me greatly whenever I start thinking about the state of Christianity in America. Every time I hear about what is happening there, it makes me groan within. I sometimes wonder if America

Un-Domesticating Jesus

Oct 21, 2013

Tortured Cows and Babies

In a civilised society we want to treat animals humanely. I would like to think that we would also want to treat human beings humanely as well. But that is not always the case. A new TV documentary has aroused

Another Good Mind Gone to Pot

May 5, 2008

Every once in a while an idea comes along that is so silly and so preposterous, that one does not know whether to laugh or cry. It is, as George Orwell once remarked, a case of there being “some ideas

Libertarians and Atheists: A Dangerous Mix

Mar 19, 2007

Not all atheists are civil libertarians, and not all libertarians are atheists. But much like salt and pepper, more often than not they go together. A good case in point is Australian columnist Phillip Adams. He is both a card-carrying
