Health and Unsafety

30th December 2016 5

It’s a bit parky out there this morning, so I’d better not stray beyond the front door. Public Health England (PHE) has told the aged to stay indoors. And they define an aged person as someone over 65. Well, I’ve been aged for nine years, going on ten and I’m afraid I’ve not been behaving myself. When, aged 70, I … [Read on]

Peter Mullen; “The Starry Heavens above and the Moral Law within.”

24th November 2016 3

On Thanksgiving, Abraham Lincoln urged the American people to offer, “Thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.” Barak Obama omitted all mention of “God” or “prayer” in his message to the nation. By contrast, Donald Trump declared America “blessed,” referred to “my prayer” and ended with “God bless you all. God bless America.” I just … [Read on]

Peter Mullen; Thickos of the world Unite

10th November 2016 3

D’you remember how the metropolitan elite said we voted for Brexit because we’re thick? Well now the American branch of this elite is saying the same of those who voted for Trump, describing these poor, afflicted and unenlightened citizens as “low information types.” That’s what we thickos call “thick.” Moreover, we thickos can’t be expected to pull our socks up. … [Read on]

They complain that the Pope’s reform programme is “rapidly becoming overdue.” In the 19th century, John Henry Newman predicted that the emerging choice for Christians in Europe would be between “liberalism and its antidote Catholicism.”  He stressed repeatedly that liberalism is … [Read on]

30th September 2016 9

You know how it is when you get a puzzle buzzing in your brain and you can’t rest until, as they say, you’ve got your head round it? I have such a pestering question in my head – it’s been there for the best part of a week: is Christianity compatible with democracy? Usually when I’m bothered by one of … [Read on]
