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...

The Order of St Michael and St George: a racist Royal honour, or just apocalyptic dualism?

Jun 23, 2020 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: As the statues fall, the expurgation expands. Someone has noticed (quite impressively) that The Order of St Michael and St George (instituted in 1818) depicts a white St Michael standing on the neck of a black Satan. “This is a highly offensive image,” they say. “It is also reminiscent of the recent murder of George Floyd by the white policeman in the same manner presented here in this medal.” And so they have started a petition: “We the undersigned are calling for this...

Repenting of privilege, signalling virtue, following the crowd

Jun 16, 2020 by

By Andrew Symes, Anglican Mainstream: We are in very challenging times, when ‘the madness of crowds’ threatens to sweep us all along in its wake. We’re hoping for leadership from the spiritual elders of our institutional church, who can guide us through our cultural crisis with wise guidance from the word of God. Instead we continue to get capitulation to the secular zeitgeist. Just yesterday: on the prominent Thought for the Day slot on the Radio 4 Today programme, a Church of England...

‘Political Correctness’ in the UK: Shut Down Discussion Before It Can Start

Jun 9, 2020 by

by Denis MacEoin, Gatestone Institute: For many years now, Trevor Phillips OBE has been one of the most prominent individuals of black ancestry in the United Kingdom. He is a multitalented individual who has played significant roles in business, politics, journalism, and more throughout a long life (he is now 66). A full list of his achievements would take up most of this article. Here are only a few examples: He was, until June 2018, the President of the John Lewis Partnership, Europe’s...
