BBC Bias, Faith Behind Bars and How to Get to Heaven in Montana

I remember when the BBC used to produce quality documentaries –  I still recall the brilliant How to Get to Heaven in Montana.   Occasionally they still do – but sadly they are far too often of the standard of last night’s ‘Faith Behind Bars’  The programme is only available from the Iplayer for 29 days – but you can see a clip here….. What was wrong with … Continue reading BBC Bias, Faith Behind Bars and How to Get to Heaven in Montana

Perth’s Pride, Perth’s Shame

Maybe I’ve got this one wrong.   Maybe the first Pride festival in Perth held last weekend IS something to be proud of?   After all the press and politicians are unanimous in their praise – even the clergy joined in.  The local Council thought it was so valuable that they contributed £7,000 towards the running costs. […]

Answering Secularists – In Defence of Christianity

In response to this letter in the Courier   our friend, Alistair McBay, of the National Secular Society penned this response.   It’s a classic of its type – I think we need to invent a new game called Secular Bingo – see how many ad hom, untrue and irrational arguments you can spot in this one letter? I have a simple rule….don’t let them get away with … Continue reading Answering Secularists – In Defence of Christianity

Sound the Alarm – Bell (a review of Rob Bell’s Premier Interview)

It’s illegal to cycle in the UK without a bell on your bike. The reason for this is to warn the ambling pedestrians that you are about to hit. I thought of this when I wasted 47 minutes of my life listening to one of the worst interviews in terms of the responses of the interviewee,  I have ever heard – Premiers§ Christianty magazines interview … Continue reading Sound the Alarm – Bell (a review of Rob Bell’s Premier Interview)

Drag Queen Story Time

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

BBC Local Radio Interview about Donald Trump’s visit

This is the interview I did on Sunday with BBC Coventry.  I thought the presenter Justine Greene was lovely, intelligent and actually listened.  It’s a revealing conversation because it shows the level of misunderstanding there is about evangelicalism and the Gospel…and how so many are taking their impressions from media and from those who speak about us and not to us.  It was good to … Continue reading BBC Local Radio Interview about Donald Trump’s visit

Is Christian Media a Trojan Horse for Heresy?

I write regularly in different Christian media – up until a few weeks ago I wrote a twice weekly column for the Christian Today website.  I have written for conservative, liberal and mixed Christian media.  My only condition for writing is that I am allowed to write what I want.  Sometimes one has to exercise self-restraint remembering the prospective readership.  My hope is always to seek … Continue reading Is Christian Media a Trojan Horse for Heresy?

John Anderson Interview – Where is the West Heading?

I loved meeting John Anderson, former deputy Prime Minister of Australia.  He is a lovely Christian, with a sharp mind and  great understanding of Western culture.  I regard him as a highly significant figure – look at his website and you will see why.   It gives me some hope that there are some politicians like him.   His ‘conversations’ are superb….he has some great ones with … Continue reading John Anderson Interview – Where is the West Heading?
