America’s Despair

My original piece on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco, (America’s Disgrace) really stirred up the cesspit – as if it needed any stirring. (although to be fair a number of people also expressed appreciation).   Ironically the reaction to it kind of proves the points I was trying to make – the main one is simply that we don’t know what happened 35 years ago – and … Continue reading America’s Despair

Taxpayers’ money supports industrial scale slaughter of babies in the womb – Scotsman Article

This article was published in The Scotsman yesterday – you can read the original here –  It was also good to see my fellow Solas Trustee, Gordon MacDonald have his article published in the same paper on the same day –  Killing is wrong  Taxpayers’ money supports industrial scale slaughter of babies in the womb Although Theresa May’s recent visit to Africa was more noted … Continue reading Taxpayers’ money supports industrial scale slaughter of babies in the womb – Scotsman Article

Theresa May’s Worst Move Ever – Dancing on the Graves of Africa’s Children

There are still some things that make my jaw drop – This article (largely unreported in the UK press who were far more concerned about the Prime Minister’ dancing) did so this weekend.   In comparison with this the Prime Minister’s ineptitude on Brexit looks positively benign. What’s the story?   The Telegraph gives us a very positive spin – The UK government is going to give … Continue reading Theresa May’s Worst Move Ever – Dancing on the Graves of Africa’s Children

LED 26 – The NHS – May Apologises to Tatchell – Gay Conversion Therapy – Schools Ban Skirts – Irish Depopulation – Syrian Christian Refugees – Fake Booze – Tim Keller in Parliament

After three months its time to return to our weekly round up of events that illustrate where our culture is at.  Light Engaging Darkness tries to identify general trends in culture (each week we take seven items) and apply some Gospel light to them!  Whether we succeed or not – you can be the judge!  This link is for the previous one – many moons … Continue reading LED 26 – The NHS – May Apologises to Tatchell – Gay Conversion Therapy – Schools Ban Skirts – Irish Depopulation – Syrian Christian Refugees – Fake Booze – Tim Keller in Parliament

The Irish Referendum – the Repercussions

When it became clear that the death warrant for hundreds of thousands of Irish babies was about to be signed, it broke my heart.  When I saw the grotesque pictures of people dancing in the streets in celebration it was like a scene out of Dante’s Inferno. My article yesterday Ireland Regresses; Sunday, Bloody Sunday  has been widely circulated and got the predictable response – although with … Continue reading The Irish Referendum – the Repercussions

The Man Who Could Make Me Vote Tory

I am not a natural Tory voter.  In my younger political years it was a truism amongst those of us who were involved in student politics that ‘the Tories’ were the enemy.  Of course that is a juvenile and immature form of politics which requires a group to hate and someone to blame.  Most of us mature out of it.  Now that I’m all growed … Continue reading The Man Who Could Make Me Vote Tory

LED 6 – Back to Uni – Demolishing Statues – Natural Disasters – Robert E Lee – The Duke of Sutherland – Houston – Poland – Trudeau and Abortion – Australia and SSM – Macron – Tower Hamlets Adoption Madness…

Light Engaging Darkness – 6 Sometimes I am writing this I feel as though I am writing a comic satire.  It must be so hard for satirists in the modern Western world because the ‘reality’ is so surreal that it is beyond satire.  Anyway here are a few gems from this past week. 1) Back to Uni – It’s the time of year when students … Continue reading LED 6 – Back to Uni – Demolishing Statues – Natural Disasters – Robert E Lee – The Duke of Sutherland – Houston – Poland – Trudeau and Abortion – Australia and SSM – Macron – Tower Hamlets Adoption Madness…
