Home Truths on Family

Dec 13, 2014

More Madness from Our Elites

Nov 2, 2011

Leave it to our academics to come up with more mindless and amoral foolishness. Our ruling elites are becoming more reckless and absurd each passing day. And we as a society have to pay the price for their radical social

Homosexuals Against Homosexual Marriage

Aug 23, 2017

Yesterday I penned a piece quoting from a number of Australian homosexuals who have voiced their opposition to homosexual marriage. Why write such an article? It is pretty obvious: this is the sort of information the mainstream media and the

The Ongoing War on Homeschoolers

Feb 23, 2017

Modern mass public education is a relatively new phenomenon. It has been a mixed bag, depending on what people expect from it. If the idea is to simply provide everyone with a general education, that might be a good thing.

The War Against Parents

Mar 11, 2016

In 1996 Hillary Clinton famously pushed the line that it takes a village to raise a child. Of course that was simply leftist code word for letting the state usurp the role of the parents. The truth is, it takes

The Australian Sodomy Party

Jul 27, 2015

While the Australian Greens probably already own the title of being the sodomy party, the recent Federal Labor Party conference established Labor as worthy recipients of this [dis]honour as well. Instead of dealing with vital concerns like health and education

When Will This Hysteria Die Down?

May 1, 2015

I refer here to the hyper emotionalism and cloudy thinking of way too many Christians in the case of two convicted criminals who met their end recently in Indonesia. I certainly did not plan to say anything further on all

The Consumerist, Market-Orientated Church

Mar 28, 2015

Sadly much of Western Christendom has fallen into two related traps: most Christians are just as consumeristic and materialistic as any non-Christian; and much of our church promotion centres on secular marketing methodology and a fixation on entertainment.

Islam, Polygamy and Western Subsidies

Sep 23, 2014

In Islam Muhammad is seen as the perfect example of life and conduct for Muslim males. Thus if he had many wives, then they can too. While Muhammad was granted special privileges and thus had around 13 wives (see sura

New Zealand Christianity

Jul 26, 2014

I happen to be in New Zealand now, and it just happens to be the bicentenary of its Christian beginnings. That story will be outlined shortly, but the sad thing is to see the contrasts with then and now. While

Umm, We Told You So

Jul 10, 2014

A broken record can sure become tedious, and I realise that the constant flow of evidence that I offer about the slippery slope can become tiring after a while. But truth matters, and as long as the activists lie through

On Loneliness

Apr 12, 2014

I write this for two simple reasons: One, there are plenty of lonely people out there, even Christians; and secondly, I have been reading about David’s unpleasant experiences in 2 Samuel of late. So let me tie these two together
