Why Does The Church …?

A selection from some patient and thoughtful replies by Mark Shea to an enquirer at his blog Catholic and Enjoying It!: 1. Do you believe women should be ordained into the Catholic priesthood? The question is not whether they should be, but whether they can be. And the Church has already given its answer: She lacks …

1% Of The Population, 80% Of Terror

US Department of Justice statistics show that although they constitute only 1% of America’s population, Muslims have been responsible for 186 of 228 terror cases investigated since 9/11. The Tamil Tigers and Columbian FARC are next with 32 cases between them. And, no, of course we shouldn’t blame all Muslims for this. And we don’t. …

Tell Us Please, Mr Wilkie, Why We Should Not Be Worried…

Let’s be clear about this.  Most Muslims are decent people. That does not mean there is no problem with Islam. Consider some of the brutal attacks carried out in the name of Islam over the last few days. These are not crimes which just happened to be committed by Muslims. Christians, Hindus and Buddhists commit crimes. …

Faith and Science Collide

On the NPR (US public radio) website, Brian Reed writes condescendingly about the benighted residents of Kiribati. Even in a place as vulnerable as Kiribati, there are skeptics. “I’m not easily taken by global scientists prophesizing the future,” says Teburoro Tito, the country’s former president and now a member of Parliament. “Saying we’re going to be …

Israel Is Worried

And it is right to be. Mohammed ElBaradei says that Israel signed a treaty with Mubarak, not Egypt. Not one of the parties or movements which could potentially form part of a new Egyptian government is friendly, or even neutral, towards Israel and the West. Said Abdel-Khalek, former editor in chief of the Wafd Party’s Al-Wafd, …

Not A Paedophile If You Only Have Sex With Children Occasionally

There are many people for whom that ruling by a judge in Austria will come as a great comfort. There are many more for whom it be a source of astonished dismay. Elizabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, a critic of islamic activism in Europe, has been on trial in Austria for inciting hatred and denigrating religious teachings. The judge began …

London or Lakemba?

This short (11 minute) video is by a French journalist. It documents the presence and growing danger of islamism in London. It could easily be Lakemba in Sydney. My younger sister lived in Lakemba. It can be a scary place. If it was just Falafel land, as Eddie McGuire joked, no one would have a …

Horrifying Violence From The Religion Of Peace

Sickening and disturbing and not for viewing by children: This is video of an event that took place in Indonesia on the 6th of February. 1,000 Muslims attacked a small group of members of the Ahmadiyah sect, destroying their home and beating them to death. The last few minutes are especially horrifying. The murders are over …

Cultural Differences

And editorial differences, too. Nine News reports that four Perth taxi drivers have been charged with sex offences. No names. Nothing about cultural differences. Perth Now covers the same story, but notes that two or three (Singh could be Sikh) of the four have islamic names. One of them is called Arshad. Seriously. Perth Now also …

Scientists vs Alarmists

A letter from 36 leading climate scientists responding to the latest round of alarmism. Longish, but worth quoting in full: February 8, 2011 To the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate: In reply to “The Importance of Science in Addressing Climate Change” On 28 January 2011, eighteen scientists sent a letter …

Can Obama Really be That Naive?

‘Don’t worry about the Muslim Brotherhood’, President Obama is reported as saying, ‘they don’t have majority support.’ Maybe not, but they do have majority support for the majority of things they believe in – an islamist state, sharia law, beheading people who leave islam, stoning adulters, war with Israel, etc. And they are the only well …

The Road to Hell

Two videos from the thought-provoking and frequently sensible Andrew Klavan. The Road to Hell is Paved With Good Intentions. Yes, we’ve all heard that. But why is it true? And can you give some actual examples? Why, yes I can, thank you for asking: Is America Satanophobic? Probably, but why not? Satan is bad. No, …

Pope Changes the Rules – Not

Oh my goodness, the legacy media really are a laugh a minute. Three examples: Pope changes view on condom use.  No he hasn’t. Pope Agrees Condom Use Can Be Justified. That’s not what he said. Pontiff Blesses Condom Use. Did you even read what he said? OK, then, what did he say? Basically, that in …

Have an Nice Day, and Naked Pictures at the Airport

I remember seeing a guy a guy who had been asked to leave several supermarkets interviewed on TV. He objected to being told ‘Have a nice day’ by checkout operators. Fair enough. It is a silly, empty phrase. But he responded by abusing the employees. These were mostly teenage girls in their first jobs, who …
