I fear Islamic extremism in these schools is just the tip of the iceberg

Jun 11, 2014 by

By Manzoor Moghal, Chairman of the Muslim Forum: [...]  I found Britain a wonderfully open, welcoming nation, devoid of the kind of lethal prejudice that I had experienced in Uganda. Here, I could practise my faith and enjoy family life without any totalitarian state intervention. It would have seemed utterly bizarre when I first arrived to learn that, 40 years later, schools here would be scarred by segregation, intimidation and anti-white, anti-British sentiments. Sadly, what is happening in...

Letter to the editor of Christian Today

Jun 11, 2014 by

From The Revd Julian Mann: Dear Madam Editor, As a regular reader of Christian Today, I do not dispute your editorial decision to report that the Bishop of Manchester has appointed the Revd Rachel Mann an honorary Canon of the city’s Cathedral.  With the Church of England deeply divided over human sexuality, Canon Mann’s self-identification as a lesbian makes the appointment newsworthy. But I do wish to raise very serious concerns about the lack of editorial balance in the interview with Canon...

Trojan Horse: I warned about this years ago

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Norman Tebbit, Telegraph: [...]  No one should have been surprised at what was going on in schools in Birmingham. It is precisely what I was talking about over 20 years ago and Enoch Powell was warning against long before that. We have imported far too many immigrants who have come here not to live in our society, but to replicate here the society of their homelands. This is not a tirade against migration from the EU, which we are largely unable to control, but from the rest of the world,...

Coordinated LGBT messages in English Christian media

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Andrew Symes: Three articles promoting a revisionist approach to sexuality and gender appeared within two days of each other in three different church publications last week. The Church of England Newspaper has long been known for giving a mainly conservative viewpoint, but in recent months has given increasing space to non-traditional views, particularly on the issue of sexuality. Benny Hazlehurst, founder and leader of Accepting Evangelicals, uses his regular column to argue for the...

Baker forced to make gay wedding cakes, undergo sensitivity training, after losing lawsuit

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Todd Starnes, Fox News: [...]  Nicolle Martin, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, called the ruling Orwellian and said they are considering an appeal. “They are turning people of faith into religious refugees,” Martin told me. “Is this the society that we want to live in – where people of faith are driven out of business?” Martin said it was “truly frightening” that Phillips will be forced to submit quarterly reports to the government disclosing whether he turned away any wedding...

Bishop of Carlisle regrets ‘short-sighted and ill advised’ reduction in NHS chaplaincy h...

Jun 10, 2014 by

“NHS staff may often be the only point of contact that trafficked individuals have with society…This is just one of many reasons why the significant reduction in chaplaincy hours by some trusts seems to be short-sighted and ill advised”- Bishop of Carlisle, 9/6/14 In the sixth response from the Bishops’ Benches to the Queen’s Speech, the Bishop of Carlisle, Rt Rev James Newcome, focused on health matters, drawing special attention to the need for action on elderly social care and on the health...

I dread the thought of my children being taught ‘British values’

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Ed West, Spectator: [...]  ‘British values’ is a dread-inspiring term because, as was the case under New Labour, the ideas are likely to be either too vague or too debatable (this was the subject of a chapter in my book). Blair and Brown identified our values as to do with things like ‘tolerance’ and ‘fair play’, as if other nations identified themselves by their intolerance and cheating; more troubling, the values many talked about were contentious at best to my generation, and totally...

Were Christians Right About Gay Marriage All Along?

Jun 10, 2014 by

From The Daily Beast: [...]  Which leads to a perfectly logical question: What’s next? Moderates and liberals have argued that same-sex marriage is No Big Deal—it’s the Same Love, after all, and gays just want the same lives as everyone else. But further right and further left, things get a lot more interesting. What if gay marriage really will change the institution of marriage, shifting conceptions around monogamy and intimacy? On the other hand, what if the domesticating institution of...

Politically correct police allow Islamists to protest, but not pro-lifers. Why?

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Cristina Odone, Telegraph Growing up in Washington DC, I saw plenty of pro-life protests outside abortion clinics. America in the 1970s was a battlefield between liberals and feminists who chanted “keep your rosaries off my ovaries” and (mainly) conservative pro-lifers who held up posters of bleeding foetuses and chained themselves to the clinics’ railings. As a teenager, albeit a Catholic one, I felt the confrontations were ugly and not constructive for either camp. Women...

Humanists hijack ‘Trojan Horse’ saga to denigrate faith schools

Jun 10, 2014 by

From Cranmer: The so-called ‘Trojan Horse’ plot by extremist Muslims to infiltrate a number of Birmingham’s schools is fraught with accusations, counter-accusations, recriminations and complexities. On the one hand, school leaders insist that they are properly educating their students – doing nothing but trying “to meet their spiritual needs as one tool to raise their achievement”. On the other, Ofsted say they discovered in some schools evidence of...

“Yes” to euthanasia brings a seismic shift in values

Jun 10, 2014 by

By Margaret Somerville, MercatorNet: Why, after millenniums of prohibiting the intentional killing of another human being, in particular by physicians, did Quebec politicians think euthanasia is a “progressive” idea that must be implemented without delay? Bill 52, originally introduced by the Parti Québécois government, was rapidly reintroduced by the Liberals and passed Thursday. Why did Quebec politicians fail to give sufficient weight to the dangers and harms of legalizing euthanasia,...
