Raging Moderate by Will Durst The whole world holds its breath as we view through splayed fingers the unrest that is the Egyptian uprising. Or as Hosni Mubarak sees it: 10 or 20 rabble-rousing, unemployed, slacker agents of the West with too much time on their hands, up to no good. That’s the problem with […]

But what rarely gets reported is the alarming fact that hiding behind the push-up bras, false eyelashes and stilettos are children, some as […]

As chaos blazes a destructive path across the Middle East, leaving in its wake depressed stock markets and inflated oil prices, and as snowmaggedon makes its march across America’s Midwest trampling any thought of global warming underfoot ““ call me crazy, but now seems the perfect time to renew the call once and for all […]

Christians were not always opposed to evolution – mainly because Christianity has progressed and made slow, significant changes over time. Darwin’s theory of evolution is 160 years old.
