Why Christians Should Support the Birmingham Muslims

One of the advantages of ‘lying on a bed of sickness’ is that I have the time to listen to radio, sermons, catch up on books I have been meaning to read.  It also helps me read  up on some stories in the media in greater depth.  One such is the Birmingham schools row – which is a fascinating and revealing insight into our culture. … Continue reading Why Christians Should Support the Birmingham Muslims

Letter to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge – re Jordan Peterson
