Iraqi Christians are raped, murdered and driven from their homes – and the West is silent

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Tim Stanley, Telegraph: For the first time in 1,600 years, Mass is not being said in Mosul: an ancient culture has been wiped out in a matter of weeks. It’s a war crime that, strangely, no one seems to want to talk about. Mosul is the second-largest city in Iraq and the place where many Christians believe Jonah was buried. Since the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) rode into town, their faith has been forced underground. Bells have been silenced, the hijab enforced with bullets....

HIV and PC Madness

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: When politics and political correctness trump medicine and public health and safety, then we all suffer greatly. We see this happening far too often but it has become standard operating procedure when it comes to homosexuality and the deadly HIV. All over the West our ruling elites, politicians, and even medical communities have politicised HIV/AIDS and endangered lives as a result. The god of homosexualism can never be challenged, never be questioned and...

The West is quickly becoming a pro-suicide culture

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Wesley J Smith, LifeSite: We are quickly becoming a pro-suicide culture–indeed to the point now that organizations like the Hemlock Society Compassion and Choices, bioethicists, and the mainstream media promote suicide by self-starvation as the new big thing in making oneself dead. Philip Nitschke is one of the international rock stars of euthanasia advocacy. He is also its most candid. He believes that everyone owns their own body absolutely and thus have a right to suicide whenever they...

Well, stone the crows (or Muslim women, as the case may be)

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Alexander Boot: It was all perfectly legal, in strict compliance with time-honoured legal principles. A Sharia court in a Syrian province under jihadist control charged a young woman with adultery a few days ago. The case was tried according to the due process of Islamic law, and the defendant was found guilty. Since her crime carried a mandatory death sentence, she was taken out to the market square and publicly stoned to death. Justice was served. Now I happen to have in front of me the...

Has The Church ‘Locally Adapted’ Become A Bridge Too Far?

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Fr. Dale Matson: St. Gregory The Great sent the monk Augustine to the British Isles as a missionary in 597. Augustine became the first Archbishop of Canterbury. Gregory was eager but cautious in introducing the Gospel to England and thus he included the leeway allowing Augustine to ‘locally adapt” church customs in England. “Gregory showed great wisdom and insight in his management of the mission. He and Augustine kept close contact with each other; they worked as a team. Through their...

Direct News from Christians in Mosul

Jul 21, 2014 by

From Cranmer: From Canon Andrew White, Vicar of Baghdad:  Direct News from the Christians in Mosul Nineveh Tonight. For Iraqi Christian Fadi and his young family it is a lonely wait to see whether they will be executed soon. Their Christian neighbours and friends have already fled the city of Mosul in Iraq’s north, which last month fell into the hands of Sunni jihadists led by the Islamic State group, which espouses an extreme form of Islam. Along with the rest of the city’s...

Petition: Establish a national inquiry into allegations of organised child abuse

Jul 21, 2014 by

By Tom Watson MP: SIGN PETITION HERE For the past two years I’ve been working with a cross party group of MPs, survivors and experts looking into allegations of child abuse which may have involved senior Westminster and Whitehall figures in the 1970s and 80s. This week it has emerged that files detailing the allegations have gone missing. Many survivors of child abuse believe they have been let down by system of child protection in the UK. Thousands had nowhere to turn. Nobody listened...

Letter to Reform members following the York General Synod

Jul 20, 2014 by

from Rod Thomas: Dear Member of Reform You will have been saddened, but probably not surprised, by the General Synod’s vote last Monday on women bishops. This was the logical outcome of the decision in 1993 to enable women to be ordained to the presbyterate in the Church of England. That decision prompted the formation of Reform and since then we have actively sought to urge the Church to reform herself under the authority of the Word of God. Over the last 10 years we have worked hard both to...
