The Thought Police of the New Revolution

What are the police for? It’s not a trick question….indeed it is a vital question for the whole of our society.

Two Churches Struggling with (Gender) Identity

When I want to understand the culture I find that Dundee taxi drivers and hairdressers are usually pretty good barometers.  As regards the latter I was speaking to my hairdresser today and she told me about ‘gender reveal’ parties.  I had no idea what they were and at first thought they might be a kind of coming out party for transgender people.  But no – … Continue reading Two Churches Struggling with (Gender) Identity
