Nigel Farage is right: we must protect our Judeo-Christian heritage

Jan 14, 2015 by

by Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart: Yesterday, Nigel Farage hit out at such delights of modern multiculturalism as female genital mutilation, sharia courts and Pakistani rape gangs, suggesting that what western societies need is “interculturalism” to protect our Judeo-Christian heritage. By invoking God as a moral good, he is being unfashionable but inescapably right. The militant tendency in atheism has, mirabile dictu, had its day: with Christopher Hitchens’s sad passing and the gradual...

Are mainstream media prejudiced against God?

Jan 5, 2015 by

By Denyse O’Leary, MercatorNet: Recently, I noted that it is mainly older people who rely on dying legacy media for news. Media watchers have noted that the New York Times marked Christmas Day with two different stories about atheism, here and here. And that Newsweek took a desperate swipe at the integrity of the Bible just before Christmas. It raises a question: Are legacy media inherently anti-religious? Maybe. But first let’s distinguish between three terms sometimes used to criticize...

A Christmas guide for atheists

Dec 23, 2014 by

by David Baker, Christian Today: I was surprised to find a book entitled ‘The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas’ (HarperCollins, 2009) prominently displayed while out shopping for presents a few days ago. Of course, I shouldn’t have been. Atheism is fairly fashionable, the book has an eye-catching design, and in the often-predictable world of festive retailing it certainly has novelty value. Also, it actually looked quite good – with six sections, including short stories,...

Just say NO to Ouija

Dec 9, 2014 by

by Canon J John, Premier Christianity: When my friend told me Ouija boards were going to be this Christmas’ sell-out item my initial reaction was that this was another ‘urban myth’, best treated with a healthy dose of scepticism. Who, in the age of the internet, online gaming, Facebook and 3D televisions would want to move a pointer around on a board in the hope of getting a message from the spirit world? The astonishing answer is, quite a lot of people! The story turns out...

Unholy row as nativity scene ban divides France

Dec 8, 2014 by

by Anne Penketh, Guardian: It has been called the nativity war. A French court’s ban on a nativity scene in a town hall in order to preserve France’s secular traditions has triggered a fierce backlash. “Why not ban Christmas and the public holidays that go with it?” thundered Le Parisien on Sunday. Its headline read: “Spare us a nativity war.” According to the newspaper, 86% of more than 12,000 readers surveyed were in favour of keeping nativity scenes in public places. The court in Nantes...

How did our country get where it is?

Nov 6, 2014 by

The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.  The contents could apply equally in the UK … My confession: I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t...
