Student expelled over views on sexuality

Secularists don’t like to hear it but the Judeo-Christian heritage is an important part of human rights and free speech; without which secularism itself couldn’t operate. It seeks to erode biblical values in society, which is leading us backwards to repression. Social-work is a fairly reliable “weather-sock” that shows how […]

Identity politics – when will the madness end?

I have said for 20 years that the more pernicious danger facing western societies – by far – is not Islamism (nor indeed even Islam) but rather the liberal left-wing vision for society. Here’s more about what’s quietly going on and how it’s affecting life as Jews, Christians and Muslims […]

Identity politics – more sinister than ISIS?

Heads are turned by Islamic violence while behind our backs the Judeo-Christian heritage is being subtly eroded – the latest casualty is the concept of “gender”. The Bible says: ‘In the beginning God created humankind male and female’ (Gen.1:27-28) that can ‘increase and multiply’ but the secularist ‘liberal-left’ now says […]

How are Americans dying?

Donald Trump’s agenda is to temporarily ban access to the USA for people from seven Muslim nations. The 9/11 Islamists were mostly Saudi Arabian, which is not on the list – why? Also some statistics are indicating that guns – not Islamism – are the biggest killer of Americans; so […]

League of nationalists

Donald Trump is only part of a pattern around the world of nationalism gaining ground. But what is “nationalism” and why is this happening? This edited version of a piece from the Economist gives us a steer. Since the French Revolution there has been a concept of universal rights of the citizen to enjoy ‘liberty, equality and […]

American Evangelicalism – help or hindrance?

America is split down the middle over what “Hillary” or “Donald Trump” stand for. It’s more than an election, the nation is ‘on-the-brink’ polarised over immigration, racism and guns. Whoever wins, the prospect of civil unrest is real. But are Evangelicals helping or hindering? The American ‘right-wing’ agenda around Donald […]

EU – now what?

For the first time since 1975, Britons have had the opportunity to determine their own future in Europe. It’s a slightly frightening but wonderful feeling to have possibly triggered a “European Spring”, though not via civil unrest but the ballot-box. In the 1975 referendum on joining what was called the […]

Will religion determine the Referendum?

Pundits recognise that ‘religious extremism’ and the ‘migrant crisis’ have religious undertones, yet we still find it difficult to recognize, understand or report the religious dimension of political phenomena. The EU Referendum struggles to see any further than mere economics. A recent survey showed that 54% of those identifying as “Christian” […]

‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’

Whether you are for or against ‘Brexit’, the fact is the EU has drifted from its original moral vision to put economics before values; while the Bible is clear that human existence is not just about ‘the standard of living’ but also ‘the quality of life’. The European project has […]

Muhammad is off limits – mock Jesus!

The multi-cultural experiment is all but over in Britain. While being a sincere attempt at fostering a healthily integrated society, it failed because people in politics and media are usually secular in outlook and therefore “religiously illiterate”. How can people of no faith, understand people of faith? This is why […]
