Time to Raise the Bar

Apr 15, 2015

Time To Stop Baby Buying

Aug 1, 2014

An indication of a society that has lost its way is how poorly it treats its most vulnerable members. And they don’t come much more vulnerable than helpless babies. When babies are treated with disdain and contempt, then you know

Time For “Equal Love” With Children

May 10, 2013

Those who want to see normalised sexual relations with children have been very vocal of late. Of course they have long been making these demands, and they have had a long relationship with the homosexual rights movement as I have

It’s Time for Some Passion Here

Sep 22, 2010

Some of you who are football fans may have watched the Brownlow ceremonies the other night. The winner with 30 votes was Carlton’s Chris Judd. This is the nation’s highest award for the best and fairest footballer. It is a

Criminalising Pro-Life Advocates

Mar 13, 2014

In a world of perverted moral values, evil not only becomes acceptable, but officially promoted, while good becomes a crime against the state. We see this in many areas, but certainly in the battle for life. All over the West

Bathroom Wars

Feb 17, 2017

Until recently no one had any good reason to write an article about bathrooms. Why would they have? Sadly however, bathrooms have now become a hot topic, all because of the radical gender bender wars which are raging all around

Some Good News in the Culture Wars

Feb 15, 2017

In an ongoing state of war – and that is what the many moral, social and cultural fights are in fact all about – there will be ebbs and flows, wins and losses, victories and defeats, good news and bad

Out of Control Abortion Myths

Feb 12, 2017

Whenever the abortion debate comes up, you can expect some pretty wild and woolly offerings from the pro-death camp. They seem to thrive on ad hominem attacks, non-sequiturs, red herrings, emotionalism, and just plain lunacy when it comes to defending

The Battle for Life, and for Children

Jan 31, 2017

We are living in what seems like unprecedented times, with little or no respect for human life, human dignity, and the well-being of our children. Everywhere adult desires and wants are trumping the rights of the child, the right to

A Generation of Offended Snowflakes

Jan 10, 2017

While most secular lefties today would want nothing to do with such (in their view) outdated notions as the Ten Commandments, they in fact still cling to a few moral absolutes which they insist must remain inviolate. One of them

Those Miserable Gender Bender Scrooges

Dec 17, 2016

You can always tell when we are getting close to Christmas, because the Scrooges start coming out, seeking to wreck things for everyone. And increasingly we are finding that the secular left is producing heaps of miserable Scrooges. They seem

Banning Real Help for Those Seeking Change

Dec 4, 2016

The Victorian government recently passed a bill which would ban those seeking to provide help for those who want to deal with their unwanted same-sex attractions. This dangerous bill would likely have escaped the attention of most folks, but the

Schools in Meltdown

Oct 30, 2016

It has been a long time since we simply taught the three Rs in our schools. In fact, today we have plenty of students leaving school who are illiterate, innumerate, and generally dumbed down. That is because real education has

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

The Ever Expanding Culture of Death

Oct 21, 2016

The culture of death seems to be on a roll, ever expanding its deathly grip on our culture. Instead of valuing and cherishing life, we now find ever new excuses to snuff out life. This is found in our daily

The City of Man vs the City of God

Oct 20, 2016

Allow me to engage in rather broad-brush strokes here as I look at current events through the eyes of history, especially church history. I have written often about the values of Western civilisation in general, and the appalling election choices
