Christmas: Yes He Was One of Us

Dec 24, 2016

Back in 1995 a song called “One of Us” became a big hit throughout much of the West. Performed by Joan Osborne, it asked this question: “What if God was one of us?” The first verse of the song runs

How Not To Think about IVF and Abortion

Dec 12, 2016

Advances in Assisted Reproductive Technologies have allowed us to create human embryos, but our moral abilities have not sufficiently advanced for us to recognise that killing such new life is wrong. We should have learned our lessons from history, with

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

Standing Up For the Babies, Again

Oct 8, 2016

Eight years ago the Australian state of Victoria passed one of the most liberal (read: most anti-baby) abortion laws in the world. So for eight years now we have been marching for the babies. Today was another chance for thousands

Christians and the American Election

Oct 4, 2016

I am not a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, but I am convinced that America is basically finished. Not only has it run with two of the most despicable, debauched, and diabolical candidates for president ever, but the

When a Culture Hates its Own Children

Sep 3, 2016

A culture is in terminal condition when it decides that it does not give a rip about the next generation. When it actually detests children so much as it pursues reckless, immoral, activist agendas of adults, regardless of how much

God, Suffering, Lament, and Mourning

Aug 29, 2016

Oftentimes a diverse and unrelated bunch of events will nicely come together, and inspire a hopefully coherent and unified article. This is one of them. Thinking about brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering in various ways is one

Rio: Gold, Glory and God

Aug 22, 2016

The Summer Olympics at Rio are now history (although the closing ceremony is still taking place as I write). There was plenty of gold on offer, and plenty of glory, but what I want to emphasise here is the fact

How To Destroy a Culture and Our Children

Aug 17, 2016

If a race of hostile aliens from another planet wanted to know how to destroy the West from within, they could scarcely improve upon what we are already doing to ourselves. By dumbing down an entire generation, teaching them to

In Defence of C. S. Lewis

Jun 12, 2016

This sounds very odd indeed: defend one of the greatest Christian thinkers, authors, scholars and apologists of the past century? Why in the world would I seek to defend someone who has blessed millions, helped millions, and strengthened the faith

Against Christian Fatalism

May 6, 2016

There are many vital Christian doctrines which are so grand and so majestic that entire libraries are filled with large tomes discussing them, and even all that is not fully sufficient to do these themes justice. Thus it may be

Non-Binary Non-Brainery

May 2, 2016

The West has fallen so far, so fast, that madness is now the majority mindset, at least for our elites, our intelligentsia, our rulers, and our experts. Almost every time they open their mouths you can expect something idiotic to
