A news bulletin from the Guardian:

Brussels, February 12: The new Greek government’s confrontation with its Eurozone creditors over its campaign to relieve its staggering debt burden while also relaxing the terms of five years of austerity resulted in stalemate late on Wednesday …. It appeared that Alexis Tsipras, the new Greek prime minister, ordered his finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, to stand firm against the pressure to make any concessions.

New Politics for Old in the Cradle of Democracy

On January 25, 2015, the Greek people elected a team of politicians who imagine themselves – probably correctly – as harbingers of a generational change that is swiftly taking place everywhere throughout Europe. Continue Reading »

The scene was inspiring. It was 1894 Toronto, Canada. Overflowing crowds jammed into the evangelistic meetings led by American evangelist Dwight L. Moody. For this event, evangelical Anglicans played a key role in bringing Moody to Toronto and supporting his popular revivalism and evangelicalism. The Rev. Dyson Hague, for example, admitted that Moody’s cup was not of polished crystal, yet it contained living water and it was the water that people wanted. Continue Reading »

It does not surprise me when I see that some of the most passionate defenders of capitalism are women. Today you can find a little of Rose Friedman (an impressive economist of yesteryear) in a number of notable conservative women who extol the virtues of a free market economy. They understand the link of capitalism and the rise of women. Continue Reading »

Immediate Impact of the Islamist Slaughters in Paris, January, 2015.

As has been the case with all of the recent Islamo-terrorist attacks upon our lives and our institutions, the monsters who perpetrated those murders of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, and their comrade who carried out the assassinations of civilians inside the Hyper Casher store in Paris have achieved the very opposite of their declared purpose. They have raised awareness worldwide of the unappeasable character of Islamic terrorism in all its forms while drastically lowering the prestige of Islam. They have provoked an unanticipated display of solidarity of the political community of France with the Jewish community, possibly – just possibly, averting the mass exodus of the Jewish population of France to Israel or America. They have concentrated the previously wayward attentions of the police and security units that are tasked with preventing their illegal activities everywhere in the world. They have stirred up huge popular demonstrations against further concessions to Muslim demands for accommodation of their morality and their culture. Continue Reading »

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:18-21

In several recent postings on this site I have built up considerable steam as I have exposed the premises of Islam that, as I see things, clearly inspire and justify the present bloody campaign being conducted by ISIS, al-Qaeda, al-Shabab, Boko Haram, et al, against the lives of Christians, Jews, “infidels” of all kinds — but most viciously against other Muslims. I have argued that such behaviour is “insane” – appealing to the dictionary sense of demonstrating “a state of mind that prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction” – in short, ruinous to health. And I argue that this is precisely because the story that unfolds in the Qur’an is insane – in the same sense. Continue Reading »

Data on church growth over the past several decades reveal that churches accommodating to secular culture lose members, many of them in fact. Pick any random number of churches that have lost significant membership and check out their acceptance of liberal theology, including as it relates to social issues such as same-sex marriage (notable American examples are the United Methodists, Episcopalians, and United Church of Christ). In Canada, the United Church of Canada, the formerly large Protestant denomination with strong evangelical roots, is now on life support dealing with a massive loss of church membership (in 2012, average weekly church attendance across Canada was less than 159,000).

Anyone feeling the need for a quick boost of morale should take a quick look at the site http://www.markhumphreys.com/left.html where he can watch an incredibly brave man, Robert Spencer, the Director of Jihad Watch, as he speaks to a crowd of secular-left and Islamist groups at a Pax Europe rally in Suttgart, Germany, in June 2011:

You are already subjugated! You are already their useful idiots…. You are out here in their service. And you think your fight is for freedom. You are fighting for you own slavery! … You are fighting for the destruction of all the freedoms that you enjoy. You are fighting for the defeat of your own selves, of your own lives. You are slaves seeking slavery. You are the most foolish, you are the most evil, foolish people on Earth…. Shame on you!”
