Children at Parson Street Primary School in Bedminster, Bristol, were entertained by a drag queen on World Book Day. The school’s headmaster, Jamie Barry, reportedly invited the drag entertainer from Drag Queen Story Time in order to promote LGBTQ issues to their students aged from three to 11. Drag Queen Story Time’s stated aim is to, “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of children and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.” One mother was quoted as saying, “Lots of parents at the school are not happy about it but the headmaster [Jamie Barry] says there’s…

The Multicultural Student Services Center (MSSC) at George Washington University is set to host a seminar titled, “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!” During the event, the MSSC Associate Director and LGBTQ Resources Director will discuss how Christians have “easier” lives and get “built-in advantages over non-Christians.” I think it’s safe to assume the seminar is going to be a complete dog’s breakfast. These things are only ever intended to divide people, in order to turn them against the dreaded straight, white, Christian male. But what if I told you there are real advantages to being a…

What’s this? It’s the victim card. What’s that? It’s the fabrication of victimhood to justify one’s own poor behaviour. And it was recently played by the ABC in response to the backlash they received for their racist ‘Privilege Song’ video. “It was just a kid’s show,” they cried. “What sort of grown man gets upset about a children’s program?” Well, on the off chance that anyone out there still buys their garbage, here’s one more glimpse at the “kid’s show” they just can’t comprehend anybody finding objectionable. There are many different sexualities… The word Queer hasn’t always been a positive or…

Why should you believe the Bible? It’s an important question, not only for those who don’t believe, but also for those who already do. It’s an important question because our culture is increasingly rejecting the Bible as the measure of truth and morality. As a result, our freedoms are eroding day by day. Relativism is now widely embraced in place of Christianity. That is, the philosophy that truth and morality are essentially defined by the biggest, noisiest, most vicious mob. It’s time to return to our old paths. It’s time to embrace truth and morality as defined by the Bible,…

Qantas has told their employees to use “gender appropriate” language to avoid offending the LGBTQI community. According to the Daily Telegraph, an information booklet, issued by Quanta’s People and Culture group executive Lesley Grant, asks employees to stop using potentially offensive words such as “honey, darling and love.” Terms such as “partner” are also to be used in place of husband and wife, and “parents” instead of mum and dad. Also frowned upon are gender-inappropriate words such as guys, mankind, or chairman. Language can make groups of people invisible. For example, the use of the term chairman can reinforce the idea that…

Delaware is preparing to pass a rule that would allow students as young as five to ‘choose’ their own race and gender. Under Regulation 225, LGBTQ activists are pushing to make it a requirement for schools to provide students with access to bathrooms and sports facilities in accordance with their preferred gender – and that, without parental consent. The rule doesn’t require schools to inform parents of any change in gender, if they believe that the parents would not support the decision. Transgender activist, Mark Purpura said the rule is made in the “best interest of the child” as it helps…

Let’s be honest. Apple are in the business of selling products. They’re a business, and they’re not going to back a cause that threatens to sink them. So, don’t mistake their latest campaign for bravery. They’ve simply joined the plethora of brands now gayifying just about everything they’re offering, automated teller machines are no exception. In fact, thanks to the official YES Campaign, we’ve now been offered a large list of more than 2,000 organisations that are publicly backing LGBTQI issues. It’s no surprise then to see Apple’s latest virtue-signaling campaign called First Dance. A number of short videos have appeared on social media recently,…

It’s truly remarkable that there is a marketing team out there that thought it would be a good idea for ANZ Australia to take sides in one of the most divisive national debates of our time. Of the 12.7 million Australians who voted in the Same-Sex Marriage survey, 38.4% of votes fell on one side, 61.6% fell on the other. At the risk of offending 4,873,987 potential Australian customers, ANZ Australia has introduced the GAYTM. Yes, they’ve managed to sexualise a bank transaction, although they look more like something from the set of George Clooney’s, Batman and Robin. AGL Energy…

Peter Worland, executive director of Uniting tells us, “everyone is born in the image of God.” What that means, according to Worland, is that “every person is… not born broken, but born perfect. And that means every LGBTI person as well.”  Is that what the Bible says, or is Peter Worland and his friends at the Uniting Church, contradicting the faith they claim to profess? Here’s what the Bible actually says. You be the judge: I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. (Ps. 51:5) The heart is deceitful above all things, and…

The results of the same-sex plebiscite were announced on 15 November 2017, and a few weeks later Australia became the 26th nation in the world to legislate for same-sex marriage. The Prime Minister was beside himself, as he punched the air, like an Aussie batsman who had just scored a century against the old foe, England. ‘Australia has done it,’ he proclaimed, ‘What a day for love, for equality, for respect.’ Step aside Neville Chamberlain who was overjoyed at guaranteeing peace in our time in 1938. Here is Malcolm Turnbull in 2017: ‘This belongs to us all. This is Australia…

“Do not let this one issue, and I know it’s a very powerful, strong issue, but do not let this one issue prevent you from eternity with God.” After 25 years of homosexuality, Becket said: “When I was living that gay life, and for many, many years, I was 100% sure that was my identity. I felt like I was born that way. It was my orientation; it was my identity, and I felt like it was immutable. And one of the things that also happened during that moment of conversion was I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that…

According to the Daily Mail, a 10-year-old from Brooklyn, New York, is launching Haus of Amazing, the “first and only drag club for kids.” Desmond Napoles, whose drag name is, ‘Desmond the Amazing,’ claims to have been “doing drag since [he] was two years old.” In an interview with Out, Desmond revealed: “Ever since day one… ever since I was able to walk, I used to take my mom’s towels and take her heels and clomp around the house. [I’d] put the towel on my head, wrap a towel around my body and walk the runway down my house.” When…

This article was originally posted on The Spectator. The whole same-sex marriage debate involved a lot of talk about right and wrong. Whether someone voted “yes” or “no” depended largely on what that individual considered the most moral choice. We were told that “love says ‘yes’,” and that human rights, justice, and equality were at stake. Almost the entire issue was framed as a wrong that desperately needed to be made right. In other words, the language and arguments used implied the existence of a real moral measure – a standard that would be violated if one were to vote “no”. Either morality is…

In the United States, Planned Parenthood performs over 320,000 abortions every year; 887 abortions each day; and 1 abortion every 97 seconds. For every 1 adoption referral, Planned Parenthood commits 160 abortions. Planned Parenthood perform less than 2% of U.S. breast exams; less than 1% of the nation’s pap tests; less than 2% of U.S. cancer screenings for women; 0% mammograms; but a staggering 34.9% of all U.S. abortions. Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars of taxpayer money every year. In a recent Facebook post, the “advocacy and political arm” of the organisation, said: “We should all be deeply…

Paula Gerber, Professor of Human Rights Law, at Monash University said: “Australia should lend its support to persecuted LGBTI people in other parts of the world. This includes the Asia-Pacific region where 19 countries criminalise homosexuality.” This is the hypocrisy and inconsistency of many who voted YES to SSM: YES advocates were quick to dismiss religious people who claimed morality is defined by the Bible, not our culture. Given the fact that Gerber’s position on SSM contradicts Jesus’ definition of marriage, we may safely assume that she does not consider the Bible the supreme voice on moral matters. And if…

Since the Australian Parliament decided to thumb its nose at God by legalising same-sex “marriage,” I have been asked numerous times how we as Christians should respond. As I pondered this question I have found myself coming up with six ways in which I will personally respond to this embracing of darkness. 1. Be Family Focused I am convinced that family is the building block of society. If we want to see our community strengthened then we need to have strong, godly and moral families.  As such, I will be seeking to love my wife as Christ loves the Church…

Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, opens his doors to everyone. “People of all walks of life are always welcome in the store… I serve everybody, I just don’t make cakes for every event,” Phillips has said. Phillips is a Christian, which means he refuses to use his artistry to decorate cakes that endorse a message contrary to his faith and conviction. “There are certain messages that I don’t create,” Phillips states. “I don’t do cakes for Halloween, I don’t do cakes that would promote sexual things, or anti-American things, or things that would disparage other people, including [those] that identify as…

Author, Pat Miller, once said, “The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” Paula Gerber, Professor of Human Rights Law, at Monash University, has recently stated: “…once the celebrations from Australia achieving marriage equality have subsided, the fight for LGBTI people to live free from discrimination will continue.” So, what does…

“For we are Young and Free.”  What a lovely line.  I think of swimming at the beach, a cheering crowd at a concert, a happy family eating Christmas lunch. Or we might think of the freedom to live where we want, to study what we want, to work where we want, and to buy what we want. Below these delightful tip-of-the-iceberg freedoms, lie the four foundational freedoms of conscience, assembly, religion, and expression. Freedom of conscience is your freedom not to be coerced to act against your convictions about what is good and what is evil.  Mel Gibson’s 2016 movie Hacksaw Ridge, for…
