The Left’s character assassination of Roger Scruton

Apr 23, 2019 by

by Dan Hannan, Washington Examiner: Shall I tell you the worst thing about our finger-wagging, prissy, censorious age? It’s not the nastiness on social media. It’s not the cowardice of bystanders who hang back and allow good people to be defamed by Twitter mobs. It’s the shift in power. Learning, truth, and decency are nowadays trumped by the imagined injuries of the permanently offended. Last week saw a horrible hit job on Roger Scruton, arguably the most distinguished philosopher in Britain....

Israel Folau and Three Myths of a Changing Society

Apr 22, 2019 by

by Phillip Jensen: As Australians celebrate Easter, I want to assert, as a Christian, that because of his love, Jesus died and rose again to bear the sin and judgement of we sinners who deserve his condemnation. So, with all Christians, in obedience to our Saviour, I would call on all to repent and find forgiveness while they may. However, I write this article not as a Christian but as an Australian citizen and lifetime rugby supporter, who happens to be a Christian, seeking what I see as the...

The right to criticise George Soros

Apr 21, 2019 by

by Frank Furedi, spiked: This arrogant and destructive oligarch must be held to account.

So last week, when Roger Scruton spoke unkindly about Soros in an interview with the New Statesman, it was inevitable that sections of the media would brand him a xenophobic villain. Scruton referred to a ‘Soros Empire’ in Hungary and this was immediately seized upon as evidence of his...

Group behind ‘hate map’ is ‘morally bankrupt’

Apr 3, 2019 by

by Leonardo Blair, Christian Post: Christian conservatives call out corruption, hypocrisy. Conservative groups that have suffered due to being tagged on the controversial “hate map” of the Southern Poverty Law Center say the organization has no moral authority to label others as it grapples with racial discrimination and sexual harassment allegations of its own. “Today’s SPLC is aggressively anti-Christian and morally bankrupt, both inside and out. It has long lost any claim as the moral...

Godlessness is reaching epidemic proportions

Mar 21, 2019 by

by Howard Green, Christian Post: Imagine the world with no rules, accountability, or consequences for evil actions. This image is one where people take a life with no remorse. It is a place where life savings are greedily stolen, women and children are abandoned, and even basic respect that was afforded to a mother and father is absent. This place of our worst imaginings is one fraught with lawless, heartless, and treacherous people who are concerned with no one but themselves. That would be a...
