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

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

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

On Assessing a Religion

Apr 27, 2016

Yesterday I penned a piece on choosing a religion. On such a complex and important topic such an article could only be the briefest of brief introductions. So here I want to pad things out a bit more, even though

On Getting the Government We Deserve

Feb 23, 2016

The saying, “Every nation gets the government it deserves” has been tossed around quite a bit of late. On some social media sites you see it attributed to John Calvin. It seems however that it actually came some two hundred

The Gaystapo Crackdown on Christianity

Jan 25, 2016

Once upon a time governments operated circumspectly, engaging in simple things like keeping the roads in good shape and collecting the garbage. Increasingly however Western governments are becoming coercive utopians, pushing the agendas of radical minority groups.

The Victorian Labor
