Thousands of Canadians have signed petitions to ban conversion therapy

Dec 9, 2019 by

By Jessica Murphy, BBC News: Thousands of Canadians have rallied behind two petitions calling for a nationwide ban of conversion therapy. It’s part of a wider global trend condemning the practice. Peter Gajdics came out as gay to his family when he was 23. His staunchly Catholic parents rejected his homosexuality, and he left home. But Gajdics found himself struggling with deep depression and with feeling alienated and estranged, and his doctor referred him to a psychiatrist. That...

‘Deadly Delusions’: Europe’s Deradicalization Programs

Dec 9, 2019 by

by Giulio Meotti, Gatestone Institute: […] The latest attack in London was a lethal mix of religious dissimulation and Western naïveté. It also, one hopes, buries all the British illusions of deradicalizing jihadists. As the Times reported, the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), the so-called “nudge unit” formerly part of the Cabinet Office, examined 33 deradicalization programs across the UK and found that only two were supposedly successful. The British criminologist Simon...

C4M’s analysis of manifestos: the ‘quadlock’ protections

Dec 9, 2019 by

from Coalition for Marriage: Dear marriage supporter, This is the last of our emails highlighting party promises around marriage. The Liberal Democrats have committed to “enabling the Church of England and Church in Wales to conduct same-sex marriages”. This inevitably means disrupting the ‘quadlock’ of protections created by the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 to stop clergy being compelled to carry out gay weddings. Part of the quadlock specifically excludes Anglican churches from...

“World AIDS Day” vs. the Truth

Dec 9, 2019 by

from Mass Resistance: Schoolchildren – and society – are being given deadly messages for the sake of political correctness and a radical movement. On December 1, the 21st annual “World AIDS Day” was observed around the globe – particularly in schools and on college campuses. Except for “Pride Month” in June, it is the LGBT movement’s biggest ideological push on society. It is also the most dishonest – in a deadly way. LGBT activists, and their enablers in the medical establishment,...

It’s not unChristian to oppose too much immigration

Dec 9, 2019 by

by Peter Simpson, TCW: THERE is probably no issue which furnishes a higher potential for virtue-signalling than that of immigration. To declare how much one supports it and to trumpet all the benefits which it brings affords an immediate passport to liberal respectability. As a Christian pastor, I have long been grieved to see how the churches have generally sided with the cultural Marxists on this issue, despite the Biblical warnings not to conform to the fashions of a God-rejecting world....

Physical Interventions on the Bodies of Children to “Affirm” their “Gender Identity” Violate Sound Medical Ethics and Should be Prohibited

Dec 9, 2019 by

by Ryan T Anderson and Robert P George, Public Discourse: Rather than teaching children to identify based on how well they fit prevailing cultural expectations on sex, we should be teaching them that the truth of their sexual identity is based on their bodies, and that sometimes cultural associations attached to the sexes are misguided or simply too narrow. There is a wonderfully rich array of ways of expressing one’s embodiment as male or female. Several weeks ago, many Americans were...

Archbishop Justin, you need some new Jewish Friends

Dec 8, 2019 by

Adoption of the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-semitism) wording has become the default expression of Jewish solidarity and the only way to satisfactorily show commitment to fighting antisemitism, at least according to the Chief Rabbi. Considering the document’s shortcomings, you have to wonder why this has happened. It’s an inexplicable state of affairs, until you recognise that the IHRA document is being foisted on political parties, universities and...
