“He did not know that the LORD had left him.” (Judges 16:20) This is perhaps one of the saddest verses in all of the Bible. Samson, the strongest man that ever lived, awoke to find himself surrounded by his enemies. But what was more troubling than the evil that was present, was the good that was absent. God had left Samson, and he did not realise it until it was too late. Today the results of the Same-Sex Marriage survey were released. More than 12.7 million people (79.5%) respond to the question, Should the law be changed to allow same-sex…

Things are looking gloomy in the Sunshine State. Up to 148 Queensland election candidates have signed up to Fair Agenda’s pro-abortion candidate pledge. The independent group is pressuring candidates to vow, if elected, they will, “vote to remove abortion from the criminal code, and support laws to ensure all Queenslanders can safely and legally access full reproductive healthcare, without being harassed or intimidated.” The pledge has also gained backing from The Human Rights Law Centre, Women’s Legal Service Queensland, White Ribbon, and Queensland Council of Unions. Candidates who have signed up commit to supporting three reforms in particular: Treat abortion like other medical procedures,…

Is it satire if it’s true? “I’m an aspiring photographer. I graduated college with an art degree, so obviously that puts me at a disadvantage.”

A disturbing report from LifeSiteNews reveals, school staff in Calgary, Alberta took it upon themselves to begin “gender transitioning” a moderately autistic 11-year-old, without the knowledge of her parents. The girl did not want her family to know, so she was a “boy” at school and a girl at home. The double-life eventually took a toll on the child. A year later, she told her guidance counselor that she was depressed and wanted to kill herself. Only then, once the damage was done, did the school involve the child’s parents. Lawyer John Carpay, director of the Calgary-based Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms, rightly…

James Damore, was the senior software engineer at Google. That is, until he was fired for doing, what he now describes as, the unforgivable. Damore’s actions were considered so controversial that the incident remained headline news for days. If by chance, you’re not familiar with Damore’s dismissal, you might be wondering what injustice he had been committed to warrant such a response. In his own words: “My crime: I wrote an internal document, that among other things, suggested that men and women, on average, are different. Like I told you, unforgivable.” Yes, that is exactly as ridiculous as it sounds.…

Dr Judith Reisman said, “[America] was, up to the end of the second World War, a conservative, Judeo-Christian nation. “The turning point for all that was Dr Alfred Kinsey and his book Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948. He was the father of the sexual revolution, and therefore the father of everything that has come from that. And certainly one of the key things was pornography… ” According to Reisman, Kinsey’s relationship with convicted Nazi pedophile Fritz Von Balluseck “became the foundation for the sex educational structure that fed itself into what we are teaching our children right now… “And…

Last year, Ben Shapiro tweeted an image detailing the process of fetal development. Attached to the image was the question, “When is it okay to kill this baby?” Fetal Development Day 1: Fertilization: all human chromosomes are present; unique human life begins. Day 6: Embryo begins implantation in the uterus. Day 22: Heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mother’s. Week 3: By the end of third week the child’s backbone spinal column and nervous system are forming. The liver, kidneys and intestines begin to take shape. Week 4: By the end…

Hearing on H.R. 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017. For Submission to the Committee on the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. “My name is Star Parker. I am the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education based here in Washington, DC and I want to thank you Mr. Chairman for this opportunity to declare my support of H.R. 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017…”

“It’s truly amazing how history repeats itself. The argument in favor of abortion is exactly the same as the argument in favor of slavery. ‘You’re on my land? Then I get to decide whether you’re a person or property.’ Then you have women who say, ‘It’s in my womb, I get to decide whether this is a child or not.’ Well it turns out in human history there is a long, inglorious chain of people who said, ‘I get to decide whether this is a person or not’ and it never ended with anything but mass death.” Ben Shapiro

No moral issue can be debated, in any meaningful sense, without reference to God. Take God out of the picture and all we are left with is the accidental product of time and chance acting on matter. Doug Wilson has argued that once we remove God from the debate, “then the difference between your thoughts and mine correspond to the difference between shaking up a bottle of Mountain Dew and a bottle of Dr Pepper.” You have no basis for arguing that your thoughts are nearer to the truth than anyone else’s thoughts. You fizz one way, they fizz another.…

“The Bible tells me so,” is something Christians need to embrace, not shy away from. Why? Because you can’t make a meaningful moral argument for anything unless that argument is grounded on GOD. Here are three quotes that sum up the absurdities inherent to a society debating morality without reference to God. “You and I can discover truth, but we cannot create it. What’s true is true and what’s not is not – for all of us, all the time. Our culture views truth as something inside us, subject to revision according to our growth and enlightenment. Scripture views truth…

“One often hears the rallying cry from pro-choice advocates: ‘my body, my choice.’ Certainly, they exercise a choice, but, it is not just ‘my body’. There are two (2) bodies, each genetically distinct, and each ‘foreign’ to the other. It should be recognized that the body of the early embryo is very active in its daily rituals of survival. Prior to about 14 days post-fertilization the embryo becomes composed of two layers, an upper or epi-layer, and a lower or hypo – layer. At 14 days a third layer appears wedged in between the upper and lower layers. At this…

Somebody once said, “If there is no God, everything is permissible.” Remove the moral authority that exists outside of ourselves and things like right and wrong become merely a matter of personal preference. Our culture is riddled with it. Take Cosmopolitan, for instance, and their recent attempt to push incest and normalise sibling-sex: “There must be some natural explanation for these feelings, Brian remembers thinking. And according to them, there is. The half-siblings say they are prime examples of genetic sexual attraction (GSA). The term was coined by Barbara Gonyo in the 1980s after she experienced an attraction to the…

When Carl Lentz, “Lead Pastor” of Hillsong Church NYC, was invited onto The View, Joy Behar threw him with a pretty basic question: “So, it’s not a sin in your church to have an abortion?” Easy. She’s throwing underarm! The question is simple, especially for a “pastor.” She’s asking if it’s a sin to murder a child. This is Ten Commandments 101… that is, unless you’re Lentz: “Umm. That’s the kind of conversation we’d have – finding out your story, where you’re from, what you believe – Yeah, I mean, God’s the judge. People have to live to their convictions. And…

On Sunday night, 60 Minutes will air an interview with transgender AFL player, Hannah Mouncey. WATCH: The #AFL says she’s too powerful to play, but Hannah says she just wants equality. 8.30 SUNDAY on @60Mins. https://t.co/0JusVZgE1l — Nine News Australia (@9NewsAUS) November 1, 2017 AFL Women’s recently knocked back Mouncey’s nomination suggesting, his physical disparity was significant and that it would give him an unreasonable advantage when competing against women. Ironically, some have responded by suggesting Mouncey’s rejection demonstrates of inequality in sports. Inequality in sports!? It demonstrates the exact opposite! Mouncey is biologically male, he stand at 190cm (6′…

Warning: Disturbing content – but apparently not too disturbing for children. The following excerpts are taking from the below video. The footage was recorded by a student. “For girls, it’s a little bit different. Do girls masturbate? Yes. Are they likely to be more reluctant to? Probably. Should girls masturbate? Yes, why not!” “So, it’s just about exploring your body and feeling good in a private setting. Okay, so it doesn’t necessarily have to do with your reproductive area. It can be touching a breast, or having a bath and — I don’t know… But yeah sure, girls can masturbate…

Last week the Federal Group denied service to a Coalition for Marriage gathering. The Plenary Hall at Wrest Point Casino was booked and paid for, and then cancelled forty-eight hours before the event. The University of Tasmania was approached.  The Stanley Burbury Theatre was free, but the University also denied service.  The event “did not fit within the terms of hire for university facilities.”  Thankfully the Vice-Chancellor reviewed the refusal, and the evening went ahead. We could say a lot about the Federal Group’s discourteousness, cancelling very late a booking made in good faith.  And we could say a lot…

In 1916 and 1917, during World War I, Australia went through two divisive referenda dealing with the issue of whether men could be conscripted for overseas service. In 2017 we have gone through a divisive plebiscite on the issue of whether only heterosexual couples can legally marry. One of the strange features of the whole business was the numerous expressions of moral outrage without any basis in a thought-out moral system. This is disturbing but hardly surprising. Unaccustomed as one is to agreeing with anything David Marr comes up with, he did recently point out in the Guardian that the…

Have you ever been scolded for using the infamous “Slippery Slope Argument” when debating Same-Sex Marriage? Do you remember the good old days when people naively thought that “love is love” and “equality for all” only counted for same-sex couples? Yeah, about that… Yesterday, the ABC introduced their readers to Andrew, a divorced man who felt “unable to express himself” in marriage. Andrew said, “I felt this whole expectation you will find everything in one person to be a little unrealistic.” After doing away with the “illusion” of the monogamous paradigm, Andrew discovered, what he described as “the most deeply…
