Is the UK no longer free? 

The treatment of Tommy Robinson, coupled with the contrived outrage over Boris Johnson’s ‘burka’ remarks this week, do beg the question: is Tucker Carlson right to question whether, in fact, the UK really is a free land?   And why are the Catholic bishops not asking the same question?

Latest PC Madness: Ask Baby’s Consent Before Changing Nappy

The Australian “expert” featured at one point in the above video, is advocating this nonsense supposedly to end the problem of people touching others without consent.  The whole permissive culture is now being re-examined, but instead of looking at obvious solutions, this sort of craziness is being considered instead.  I had to double-check my calendar to make sure it wasn’t an April Fool joke but no, it’s just another fool posing as an “expert”, talking baloney.  You have to laugh, though – I couldn’t keep a straight face, so enjoy the interview. Then ask yourself how we might change  the culture of western society, where sexual harassment of one kind or another is now endemic. 

I mean, what about returning to the custom of NOT cohabiting before marriage, of courteous courtships, where the girl had a deadline to meet to return to the parental home, or, perhaps even return to an even earlier period when chaperoned courtships were the norm. Beats asking babies for permission to change their nappies, surely?  

Or do you have a better idea? How can we put an end to the unsavoury sexualised culture in which we currently live? 

O, and isn’t it time (long overdue) that the Bishops and priests spoke out about this PC madness?  Why are they not doing so?  They seem oblivious to the whole PC craziness.  Can you imagine the scandal if even one of them subscribed to the madness spouted by this Australian “expert”?

Feminism: Irrational & Un-Christian?

With monotonous regularity, the print and broadcasting news outlets across the UK are leading with allegations of sexual harassment of women.  Today’s news broadcasts and newspapers are no exception, devoting air-time and front pages to publishing this latest scandal 

Seems there’s hardly a decent male anywhere to be found. The presumption now is, clearly, “guilty until proven innocent” – that’s becoming more and more clear.  For a touch of balance, check out the entirely false allegation made against Tucker Carlson, popular American broadcaster, whose entire life and career was almost destroyed by a woman he’d never even met. 

Comment:

Has the feminist movement gone too far?  Are radical feminists, in fact, completely irrational women,  driven by a hatred of men and masculinity?  Why are there apparently no women in the media industry speaking out against radical feminism?  Female news anchors interviewing (the very few) women who signal some reservations about the current frenzy, react quickly and with annoyance, as if they want the allegations to be true.  What’s going on – should men be presumed guilty until proven innocent?  If so, does that apply across the board to all crimes, or merely to allegations of a sexual nature?

Vegas Massacre: Guns Not The Cause…

Isn’t it refreshing to hear some honest discussion about the real cause, the root cause of the change in society – in this case, specifically the increased violence in the U.S.A… That it is the human condition, fallen human nature that is to blame, not guns per se…  And isn’t it good to see politicians being grilled – really grilled – by a news anchor, compared to the supine approach of  UK journalists?  

Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the injured and relatives of the dead, while we pray for the repose of the souls of all those who lost their lives in this senseless  attack. May they rest in peace…

 

Hurricanes Divine Judgment on President Trump’s Disbelief in Global Warming?

 Comment:

There’s certainly a school of  belief that God does sometimes express his wrath through natural disasters, and there are biblical verses to quote: “The LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.”  (Isaiah 29:6)

But as a punishment for not believing a scientific theory? C’mon! 

As we reflect on the significance – if any – of these terrible hurricanes, let us remember two things; firstly, of course, to pray for the poor people suffering, at this time, and secondly, one thing that has not made (and is unlikely to make) the anti-Trump broadcasting news here in the UK  – that President Trump donated one million dollars of his personal money to the people of Texas and Louisiana.  

Over to you – are these hurricanes a punishment for not “believing in” global warming?
