Atheists sound the alarm: Decline of Christianity is seriously hurting society

Nov 5, 2019 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: Only a few years ago, the aggressive “New Atheist” movement was on the march, with rhetorical brawlers like Christopher Hitchens and renowned biologists like Richard Dawkins leading the charge against religion and the last vestiges of Christian faith in the West. Religion, Hitchens famously stated, “poisons everything,” and could only be considered, at best, humanity’s “first and worst” attempt to solve existential questions. If these cobwebbed superstitions...

Nov 3, 2019 by

by Tim Dieppe, The Conservative Woman: CHRISTIAN Hacking may be the first person in modern times to be arrested and prosecuted for praying in a public place in the UK.

How Kanye West is countering the counter-culture

Nov 1, 2019 by

by Douglas Murray, UnHerd: With his interest in ‘small-c conservative’ issues, the rapper is kicking against the artistic establishment. What do you do when the culture is the counter-culture?

The UK’s resettlement of 16,000 refugees from the earlier conflict saw hardly any from the most brutalised minorities reach safety in our land. Of the refugees who came here in 2015 under the Vulnerable Persons Scheme, only 1.6 per cent were Christians. That’s despite this group being 10 per cent of the...

‘Don’t go listening to lies’? Absolutely. A response to Rosie Harper

Oct 25, 2019 by

by Martin Davie: For centuries members of the Church of England have confessed their sins using the words of the general confession in the Book of Common Prayer… …Those who have prayed in this way have believed that the words they have said correspond to the truth of the human situation. We have turned from God’s ways and have become people who are at odds with God and consequently we need to ask his forgiveness and seek his help to amend our lives. Today, however, there are members of the...
