This past week I became aware of a couple of major churches and at least one significant evangelical Christian organisation who are burying their heads in the sand on the revolution that is taking place in our society. For them it is too controversial and not nice. Whilst they won’t take an anti-scriptural position, neither will they take a scriptural one. In seeking to be … Continue reading The Re-Imaging of Humanity – Part 4 – The Impact on Society
The following is my article in Premier yesterday. Let me add a few thoughts. I expected the militant secularists and humanists to take great delight in this. But it is interesting that more rational and less bigoted people immediately saw the stupidity and danger of the decision – read these articles from The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Spectator as examples. However it is profoundly disappointing that some professing Christians just … Continue reading Why the Ashers Gay Cake Case Proves our Freedom is Under Threat
The following article appeared on the Christian Today website on Monday – http://www.christiantoday.com/article/the.irish.referendum.scottish.church.assembly.ulster.bakery.and.the.english.politician/54688.htm Did you hear the one about the Irish referendum, the Scottish Church Assembly, the Ulster bakery and the English politician? Let’s start with the Church of Scotland General Assembly. Last week was for me an incredible week. I was installed as Moderator of the Free Church General Assembly but in reality all eyes … Continue reading After Sleepwalking Where Culture Leads, is the Church Finally Waking up?
I want to add an explanation here for the following article. I don’t normally respond to personal articles or comments attacking me – but this one was different. Last week was an intense and tough week and it was not helped by being asked to write (at midnight) a comment on the Ashers case, which I had been following. I did so and was then attacked. … Continue reading Having your Cake and Eating It – A response to Stephen J. Graham’s polemic on the Ashers Case
I got home from the Assembly last night and was asked to appear at 10:30pm on Radio 5 Live to discuss the Ashers bakery case. I was really tired and found it really hard. You can hear the programme here – from about 36 minutes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05vc9s9#auto Why did I find it so hard? 1) I was really tired. 2) This is a spiritual warfare. 3) … Continue reading Homophobic, Idiotic, Christian Scumbag speaks on Radio 5 Live

The ‘gay cake’ ruling against Ashers Bakery is another example of double standards being imposed, say Free Church of Scotland moderator David Robertson. Last night I happened to be at a really posh dinner, sitting beside a Lady who is also a senior judge. We had a most … Continue reading Bake me a Cake and Mark it with B for Bigot
