Is prostitution work?

Aug 25, 2019 by

by David Robertson, Christian Today: Language matters. Last week a young woman, Michelle Dunn, was stabbed to death in Sydney. This young woman was described as a ‘sex worker’. This is now the ‘correct’ terminology for prostitution. Does that matter? The Sydney Morning Herald carried a revealing series of reports on the nature of ‘sex work’ in the city. Michelle was a student who also operated as a sex worker. There are a significant number of female...

Aug 25, 2019 by

by Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack, TCW: If you were asked which was the most unlikely nation to be experiencing Christian conversions on a large scale, the chances are that the 40-year-old Islamic Republic of Iran would be near the top of the list.

Yet not only is the church remaining steadfast in the face of persecution,...

The morning after pill does not reduce abortions

Aug 25, 2019 by

by David Paton, The Conservative Woman: In view of the energetic response to Philippa Taylor’s TCW post on Friday, in which she backed a pharmacist who refused to dispense the morning-after pill for reasons of conscience, we thought it timely to republish an article by Professor David Paton on the facts and research concerning the MAP. This makes it clear that it is not just another drug and therefore its prescription availability is bound to be a matter of controversy. This article, which was...

A Federal Court Strikes a Powerful Blow for Free Speech and Religious Freedom

Aug 24, 2019 by

by David French, National Review: Christian videographers will not be forced to produce videos of same-sex weddings.

Aug 24, 2019 by

by Phil Ashey, American Anglican Council: […] Darkness is the place where God’s light does not shine. As Paul notes, when people no longer glorify God or thank Him, he has the power to withdraw his presence and allow the flood of darkness to come in. The result of darkened hearts and minds is described with a list which begins with “sexual impurity for the degrading of our bodies” (1:24). Think of ‘Bad Guy’, the number 1 hit today. Or how about the headline from Tuesday about how...

Family breakdown, the root cause of modern poverty

Aug 24, 2019 by

by Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: WHO killed or is killing marriage and the family? This is quite a hot topic amongst conservatives right now so I have decided to stick my oar in. Tucker Carlson blames, to some extent, the market and its disruption of the male wage. Conservatives have always had an uneasy relationship with the free market and capitalism as the free market is the great disruptor. This is why conservatives take what is sacred out of the market completely – some things...
