The rise of woke segregationism

Jul 4, 2020 by

by Joanna Williams, spiked: Segregation is back, only this time it’s woke. Incredibly, while most of us look at Apartheid South Africa or Jim Crow-era America with unalloyed horror, today’s radicals see something to emulate. Not so long ago, the idea of a university that took account of race when considering student admissions, academic hires and even the content of the curriculum would have been thought abhorrent in the UK; now just such a plan is backed by the University College Union (UCU)...

St Albans Cathedral will replace traditional Nativity scene featuring Virgin Mary with a painting of the Last Supper featuring a black Jesus in solidarity with Black Lives Matter

Jul 2, 2020 by

by Jack Elsom, Mailonline: A painting of the Last Supper featuring a black Jesus will replace a Nativity scene at St Albans Cathedral to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The Dean has agreed to install the 9ft piece of artwork on the altar after conceding that the church is in a weak position to preach about racial justice. Titled A Last Supper, the painting reworks Da Vinci’s renowned 15th century mural by casting a Jamaican-born model as Christ. The announcement came less than a...

What are you going to do when the mob comes for you?

Jul 1, 2020 by

by Michael L Brown, LifeSite: Eventually, the leftist mob always turns on its own. You’re been warned. To all the wealthy, liberal elites who are cheering on the protests and riots, a word of warning is in order. The same holds true for the conservative Christians who are lining up to show their support for the BLM movement. To each of you I say: Do not be deceived. The cancel culture will soon be coming for you. A few weeks ago, I read about a TV sports journalist who tweeted his...

Jun 29, 2020 by

by Andrew Doyle, Mailonline: Every day there seems to be a new entry into the lexicon of social justice to add to the already burgeoning list that includes ‘no- platforming’, ‘trigger warnings’, ‘hate speech’ and ‘cultural appropriation’. One of the latest is the barb directed at author J. K. Rowling, who has been accused of being ‘radicalised online’.

The gospel of woke

Jun 27, 2020 by

from Voice for Justice UK: If I may say this with respect, though I realise it may well not be taken that way, Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, displays a truly frightening lack of understanding over what Christ actually taught.  There is a famous story in the gospels, where Peter comes to Jesus and asks, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” (Matthew 18:21).  In response, Jesus says, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy...

Marxism, the cruel creed that has only ever blighted lives

Jun 25, 2020 by

by David Kurten, The Conservative Woman: THE last two weeks have seen an attempt at a cultural Marxist revolution in both the US and the UK, which has been fabricated using the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis as a cover. Floyd’s death was a shocking event. The police officer who allegedly killed him has rightfully been arrested and will face trial for murder. He is entitled to a fair trial, but given the general outrage, this is uncertain. This outrage and media response is selective...
