The Church of England’s auto-immune disease

It is certainly important for religious bodies, like everyone else, to be sensitive to the needs of those who don’t fit in. Being inclusive, however, does not mean giving powerful interest groups the right to remake society in their own image. Which is precisely what’s happening. The church hierarchy fails to grasp that secularism is a direct attack on the bedrock principles of Christianity. Secularism would ditch Biblical precepts in favour of radical autonomy, replacing normative morality and even physiological reality by subjective emotion and remaking the world in the…

Our crazy world

Please join me here as I discuss with Avi Abelow of Israel Video Network the political frenzy in Britain where a government minister, Priti Patel, was forced to resign as a result of her holiday activities in Israel; the re-emergence as a result of some ripe antisemitism from within the Conservative Party; and the calamitous mistake by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson which worsened the desperate plight of a British-Iranian woman behind bars in Iran – but over which he has not been forced to resign (well, not yet).

The lurch into cultural fascism

Both Britain and America appear to be lurching into a kind of cultural fascism. Roy Moore, the controversial Republican nominee in the Alabama Senate race, has been accused by Leigh Corfman and three other women that he made sexual overtures to them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. These claims may or may not be true. At present, we don’t know. But that hasn’t stopped Moore’s fellow Republicans from behaving as if they’re the regime of a banana republic. Presumption…

The sex-pest tsunami and moral progress

On BBC Radio 4’s Moral Maze, my colleagues and I took a broader approach to the sex-pest tsunami by asking whether our society had become more or less moral. Is the current torrent of allegations of sexual misbehaviour an ethical advance or a descent into bullying and injustice? Are moral values fixed, or do they adapt as cultures change and develop? Is the notion that moral progress is both inevitable and good a statement of the obvious or an ideological delusion? You can listen to the whole show here.

The west’s vital strategic asset

One of the many things the west fails to grasp about the State of Israel is how important it is to the security of the west, as well as the role that the Jews of that land have played in helping defend western lives since before Israel was reborn. Col Richard Kemp, Britain’s former commander in Afghanistan, has written a great piece about this that should be essential reading. Here’s a flavour: “For many years Western nations have depended heavily on Israeli intelligence, and the civil war in Syria and…

Please join me in this video clip as I lay out for Avi Abelow of Israel Video Network the terrifying scale of the threat to the west from Iran, and the alarming failure of the Trump administration to halt Iran’s progress; even worse, that the US has empowered the regime still further by treating it as an ally.
