“Epidemic Prevention” Chinese Communist Party Style: Persecute Religious Minorities

May 24, 2020 by

by Judith Bergman, Gatestone Institute: Since early 2020, China has been doubling down on its already extreme suppression of religious freedom, and the Covid-19 outbreak has done nothing to curb the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) enthusiasm.

by Neil Lyndon, The Conservative Woman: NO sport on television. Pubs, restaurants, shops, theatres, cinemas all closed. No boozy lunches with visiting friends and family which leave everybody bloated and comatose for the rest of the day. No family jaunts into the countryside that turn into wretched rows about who let the dog run away or caused the kite to crash, before you sit fuming for hours in the traffic jam on the way home. Sundays during lockdown have come to resemble the Sabbaths of my...

Tell the Government not to make divorce easier

May 23, 2020 by

from The Christian Institute: The Government’s ‘no-fault’ divorce Bill poses a serious threat to marriage. It is expected to be debated by MPs soon. It is vital that Justice Secretary Robert Buckland, who is in charge of the Bill, hears Christians’ concerns.
