America’s Disgrace I didn’t mean to do it. I didn’t have the time and I was not that interested. But once I started I found it hard to stop. It was a bit like watching a train wreck, or a really bad reality TV show – you know you shouldn’t and you know it’s a waste of time – but somehow you continue. What am … Continue reading America’s Disgrace
After Perth Pride we have now had the Dundee version. By all accounts Dundee Pride on Saturday was a great success – thousands of people from all over Scotland (according to the organisers 8,000) took part at some point. It was well attended and well-funded – Sponsors included Lush, Tay FM, Explore Dundee, the Bank of Scotland, Dundee University, Dundee City Council, Unison, Clarks Bakery, … Continue reading “I AM WHO I SAY I AM” – Reflections on Dundee Pride
Did you know that being a man means that you are “competitive, ambitious, independent, rational, tough, sexual, confident, dominant, taking risks and caring about your work? Or that being a woman means that you are “nurturing, caring, social, emotional, vulnerable and concerned with appearance.” No – this is not out of some 1950’s traditionalist uber right-wing Christian fundamentalist manual for relationships. This is bang up … Continue reading Emotional Women and Rational Men – Why I’m Coming Out as Binary

The Joy of Edinburgh Uni I had a great time at Uni. In between sports, friends, student politics and CU I even found time to do some history. It was all a great education. And it was free. And as a farmworkers son I even got a maintenance grant. I well remember the first time I queued up after registration to get my £500 cheque. … Continue reading The Best Laid Plans….The Crisis in Scottish Higher Education.
We can learn a great deal from the continuing fallout from Perth Pride. As I wrote about this – there was a backlash which involved a great deal of distortion and attempt to silence. The Daily Record joined in the unthinking herd mob mentality with this article talking about the ‘love and acceptance for all’ of Rev Scott Burton vs the hatred and ‘fiercely personal critical … Continue reading Pride Comes Before a Fall – Lessons from Perth’s Shame.
I’m just about to speak at Creationfest but before I do so I want to share with you something that was published in The Scotsman today. Look at the comments section as well – but read the text. When I warned (‘prophesied’) about this a few years ago I was abused and told I was mad – even by some Christians who told me basically … Continue reading Wow! – The Prophesied Madness of State Sponsored Child Abuse has Arrived.
What would you do if the following story appeared in your local newspaper? Would you a) Say ‘what a great idea’ and be thankful that tax payers money is being spent in such a constructive way? b) Ask ‘What’s the world coming to?’, shrug your shoulders and get on with life? c) Write an angry letter to the paper pointing out that we have all … Continue reading Drag Queen Story Time
Last Sunday we looked at Romans 8:1-4 – Looking at the subject of real freedom. This is the real Gospel. It was wonderful to see and hear people ‘getting’ the Gospel. Also we rejoiced in news of one young man becoming a Christian. To run and work the law commands, Yet gives me neither feet nor hands; But better news the gospel brings: It bids … Continue reading Romans 8 – The Freedom of the Good News; Proverbs 1 – Wisdom for Life (Sinclair Ferguson); Opticians in Burundi and Praise from St Peters
