If ever a time the phrase “Now the end begins” meant something, it is now. In a decision just as sinister, far-reaching and abominable as the 1973 Roe v Wade decision on abortion, the Supreme Court of the United States
We do not hear all that much about liberation theology nowadays. But it certainly was a major issue in the 70s and 80s, and I wrote extensively about it at the time. Although primarily a phenomena of Latin America, and
If you want to destroy a society, just target its sexual norms and values. If you can subvert and pervert human sexuality you can effectively kill a culture. We are seeing this played out before our very eyes right now.
It is quite easy to say that the West is doomed. And for good reason – it may well indeed be the case, for all sorts of reasons. Rampant secularism, growing statism and welfarism, political correctness running amok, the increasing
We have got to the point in so much of the West where it actually seems important to start talking about the possibility or even the necessity of revolution. So much of our freedom and democracy is being lost, and
A number of events of the past week or so demonstrate certain truths. Governments come and go, leaders come and go, but God’s reign remains unchanged. Some political and social changes are for the better, and some for the worse,
I have said it often before, but it is worth saying again. The law can do one of three things when it comes to various activities, behaviours and lifestyles. It can prohibit, or it can permit, or it can promote.
It is one of the profound truths of history that just one solitary individual can in fact change the course of history. Great masses are not needed to bring about radical social change or cultural upheaval. Often just one committed
Way back in 1956 Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin wrote an important volume called The American Sex Revolution. In it the noted academic warned of the direction the US was taking as it cast off all moral restraint, and elevated
There are many areas of concern when it comes to standing up for a free and democratic West. One of the biggest threats is posed by the ongoing activities of creeping sharia and stealth jihad. Whether by demographics, outright terrorism,
If a warning is given about some impending tragedy, disaster or conflict, and those warnings go unheeded, there is a double evil: the evil which occurs, and the evil of not heeding the warnings. It is one thing for tragedy
It is perfectly predictable: have a politician from the conservative side of politics make a quite sensible remark about family issues, and the secular left goes absolutely ballistic. Tony Abbott’s rational comments about abstinence before marriage attracted all the usual
In 1956 Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin wrote The American Sex Revolution. In it he said, “This sex revolution is as important as the most dramatic political or economic upheaval. It is changing the lives of men and women more
The dramatic erosion of marriage and the explosion of out-of-control sexuality are not without their devastating consequences. Many acute observers have noted this. In 1968 Will and Ariel Durant’s important book, The Lessons of History appeared. In it they said,
Abortion is one of the most controversial social issues of our day. Heat rather than light often characterises the abortion debate. There are a number of common arguments heard from the pro-choice side. They all seem to involve misleading and
A mighty prophet has just left us. One of the great figures of the past century has passed away. Alexander Solzhenitsyn, born in Russia in 1918, was one of the great voices for freedom, morality and faith in a century
A number of important books have appeared recently defending the institution of marriage. This new volume by family expert Allan Carlson adds to the collection, emphasising, as the subtitle indicates, the public purposes of marriage.
This book is about the thorough sexualisation of our culture and how women especially are affected by it. It is also about how feminism has gone wrong, and how human sexuality has been reduced and restricted by
