No Amen

Have you ever heard a sermon that you really felt you couldn’t say ‘Amen’ to? I did today.  It’s the joys of having an interregnum in the local church.  Retired and other local priests take in turns to take the service, and we have what we might call ‘the battle of the sermons’.  When we… Read more »

Stupid ASA decision

The Advertising Standards Authority – supposed to be non-political – has made a very stupid political decision, banning the Israeli Tourism ministry from using a picture of the Wailing Wall (the remains of Herod’s Temple from Jesus’ time) in their brochures. Dear Sir, I am emailing about the ridiculous decision made by the ASA regarding… Read more »

Let’s talk about the evolution of fish to amphibians. I got to thinking, let’s just isolate one factor – change in breathing from gills to lungs, from underwater breathing to air breathing. If you have some kind of half-way stage, then I’d say you have a survival of the fittest problem. According to evolutionary theory,… Read more »

Roswell and God

I’ve been watching the last episodes of Roswell series 2. Not a good use of my time I’ll admit, but the closing line of the final episode struck me. Here’s Max Evans, the steely leader making hard moral choices, he’s just banished his pregnant wife whom he has learned killed a good friend as part… Read more »

Sharia UK – it’s here today

At the weekend I heard someone I know (a little bit, anyway) mention to me – and 200 other people – that he had driven through Dewsbury, and that de facto Sharia law was in operation there, with signs on garages and shops saying ‘No whites allowed’ and ‘Whites not welcome’.  Perhaps you think that… Read more »
