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
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
This letter was published in The Courier yesterday – in response to the wicked and ridiculous ‘punish a Muslim’ campaign. Continue reading ‘Punish a Muslim’ – Letter to The Courier
The NSS have been at it again – writing letters to moan about some aspect of Christian privilege….this time lambasting the BBC for daring to broadcast from Lambeth House and once again using the issue of alleged child abuse in order to pursue their real passion – attacking Christianity. The following is their letter and my reply which was published yesterday. Sir, – Jenny Hjul … Continue reading Secularists Attack the Church of England – Letters in The Courier
The Trans hysteria continues. Already this week a teacher in England has been disciplined for ‘misgendering’ a pupil (even Peter Tatchell tweeted that this was over the top!) and a whole Labour party committee have resigned because one of their number, a Lesbian, was being bullied for being a TERF (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist). A sociology lecturer at Abertay University has warned about the consequences … Continue reading Insanity of the Gender Fluidity Debate – Letter in the Courier
It is a sad and depressing day when someone who claims to be a minister of the Good News of Jesus Christ, writes to the secular press and attacks the teaching of Jesus Christ. It is little wonder that the Church in Scotland is dying if these are its spokespeople. Ichabod. This is the second of two letters written in defence of abortion (contrary to … Continue reading Abortion, the Church of Scotland and the Media
Some of the biggest enemies we face as Christians are those who profess to be Christians, especially Christian teachers and clergy, but spend their time denying Christian teaching and the Bible. One such frequent correspondent in the press in Scotland is Rev. Dr John Cameron, a Church of Scotland minister. In one of his latest diatribes he played the usual atheist cards – the church … Continue reading Believe in the Bible or Believe in Yourself – answering heretics in the secular press!
I was delighted that the Courier gave this letter such prominence and even put the following as their box quote on the next page – The Scotsman carried more of the full text of the letter (for which see below)….Neither of the headlines were mine but they are interesting and accurate. It may be a lonely battle (although I am thankful for the Catholics and … Continue reading Does Ruth Davidson Think She Knows Better Than Jesus?
On Saturday The Times carried this extraordinary article. (Kudos to The Times for taking this seriously and carrying this – unlike most of the rest of the Scottish press!). To the delight of the Secularists it announced that almost 60% of Scots say they have no religion, the C of S has declined in the past 17 years from 35% to 18% of the population, … Continue reading The Decline of the Church in Scotland – The Times Report and Response
The Dundee Courier printed the picture above as its cover a couple of days ago. It was very effective – at least on me and had me on my knees! I wrote to them this response and am delighted to see that today they had it as their main letter (see above) There is a hopelessness about so many people. They are without hope because they … Continue reading Working Together to Break the Grip of Drugs – Letter in the Dundee Courier
