THE British magistrate who, to his credit, resigned on principle rather than preside over same-sex adoption has lost his appeal over his claim that he was subjected to anti-Christian discrimination. Andrew McClintock has said he’ll continue to fight. Some Christians welcome the decision, saying that the Gospel message actually opposes the discrimination he favours. But other Christians are backing him, and are critical of what they see as the gay-rights agenda. “Mr McClintock told an employment appeal tribunal earlier in… Read more

SCOTTISH Christians are predictably angry after two bishops in England were nominated for Stonewall’s award of Bigot of the Year. CARE Scotland want the country’s Executive to stop working with Stonewall after the Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham, Vincent Nichols (63, left), and the C of E Bishop of Hereford, Anthony Priddis (58, right, below), were nominated – along with Jeremy Clarkson, Ian Paisley Jr and Patricia KcKeever, a Roman Catholic activist. According to an article in Pink News, CARE Scotland’s… Read more

BRIAN MORRIS, in the November Freethinker, examines the life of a “devious, authoritarian imperialist”. This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scout movement, an event now being celebrated. Legend has it that it was started by the Boer War hero Lord Baden-Powell. But was it? And what sort of man was B-P? When Lord Baden-Powell died in Kenya in 1941, he was known throughout the world and almost universally acclaimed as one of the… Read more

MUSLIM men are so undisciplined and uncontrollable that one of their leaders has been forced to speak out about, ahem, embarrassing physical reactions. And it is, of course, the fault of women themselves if they should get raped. The sight of women, it seems, causes such arousal among the men – the heterosexual ones, at any rate – that Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, the spiritual leader of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, is accusing the women of “emotional abuse”…. Read more

THE St Bernard dog – named after the 11th century priest Bernard of Menthon – provides the latest proof that creationist thinking is just plain wrong. Biologists at The University of Manchester say that changes to the shape of the breed’s head over the years can only be explained through evolution and natural selection, according to News-Medical.Net. The team, led by Dr Chris Klingenberg in the Faculty of Life Sciences, examined the skulls of 47 St Bernards spanning 120 years,… Read more

Arse-kissing exercises are never pretty to behold, but the one currently being lavished on King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia by the British Government is more sickening than most. On the day the corpulent tyrant King arrived in the UK, the Independent revealed that one in four British mosques contained hate material. Researchers uncovered propaganda calling for homosexuals to be murdered, women to be subjugated and denouncing Jews and Christians as the enemies of Islam. A call was uncovered for jihad… Read more

AS A Christian, I do not agree with the idea of homosexuality. That’s the reality. I can’t put it any other way. I certainly could never change my views that homosexuality is a perversion, because it is a perversion. That’s the view of Federal Liberal candidate Pastor Peter Curtis, who added that gays die of disease at many times the rate of heterosexuals. Standing for the second time as the Liberals’ candidate in the safe Labor seat of Lalor against… Read more

SCORES of Muslim inmates at a high security prison are set to launch a multi-million pound claim for compensation after they were offered ham sandwiches during the holy month of Ramadan, according to a report by Paul Sims in the Daily Mail on Friday. They say their human rights were breached when they were given a special nightly Ramadan menu by officers at HMP Leeds last month. More than 200 Muslim inmates at the jail are said to have been… Read more

A BOY has been refused a bus pass because he doesn’t do superstition. At least, he has not had the mumbo-jumbo intoned over his protesting infant head while a man in flowing garb sprinkles water on him. And, because of that, eleven-year-old Elliott Stewart has been denied his free pass to travel by bus to St Leonard’s School in Durham. Elliott could have qualified if one of his parents had had the funny words chanted over him or her. But neither… Read more

The Freethinker award for the most absurd (and funniest) quote of the week goes to the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, George Pell. My task as a Christian leader is to engage with reality, to contribute to debate on important issues, to open people’s minds and to point out when the emperor is wearing few or no clothes. A Catholic leader engaging in reality? Do us all a favour! His words came when a bitter rift developed this month between Pell… Read more
