It was a privilege to join my friend and colleague Regan King on Revelation TV this week. I spoke on the channel's Wednesday evening programme Behind the Headlines about the work of Pregnancy Crisis Helpline, my upcoming book release and how we as a Church can hope to bring truth and hope. Unfortunately I'm too... Continue Reading →
As abortion providers fail women again, it’s time for a better way
It’s been an interesting week for the abortion industry. It came to light that a woman is considering taking legal action against major abortion provider Marie Stopes, after an extremely traumatic experience taking ‘DIY’ abortion pills. In a press release by Christian Concern, ‘Sophie’, who had to have surgery after taking the pills, says she felt she wasn’t... Continue Reading →
Red-pilled by a new Christian? (Sort of)
I don’t know about you, but bar a gin and tonic on a hot day, there are few things more refreshing in life than hearing a good honest take on something few seem to want to talk about.
After two weeks in quarantine following an impromptu Portugal getaway (sorry bank account), I finally escaped prison and grabbed a couple of drinks with a pal of mine. This pal made the decision some months back to give his life to Christ, and even without the Covid craziness, this has been such a highlight this year.
I’m constantly in awe of how intensely personal and beautifully faithful God is, and for anyone who’s seen someone come to know Jesus for themselves, you know what I mean. You probably also know what I mean when I say that there’s a contagious excitement about being around a person who has grasped the beauty of the gospel for the first time. Reignition for a weary soul.
The unholy trinity profiting from women’s exploitation
It seems to be common experience that wherever you lift the lid on some kind of evil, you are sure to find more layers of evil underneath. Recently the interdependence of three particularly insidious industries has been thrown into sharp relief. *Trigger warning – the below discusses some sensitive matter* A couple of weeks back,...

#StopStella backlash wilfully ignores crux of the matter
“Like a boil that must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed to the light of human conscience before it can be cured.” - Martin Luther King Jr It’s been a long time since I posted anything - RealLifeTM and other projects have jostled...

Sarah’s story and selective social justice
This week has been full of dramatic events (and no, I’m not referring to the pointless mini-dramas of my own life... those tend to be eye-roll worthy, but not blog-worthy).
A poor tourist in a caravan got swept off a cliff in Ireland, Brexit is only six months away (pause to cheer or sob uncontrollably), and Naz Shah, Labour’s shadow minister for equalities, said that pre-natal testing for gender is bad because it allows women to abort baby girls (but it’s apparently still ok to screen for Down’s syndrome).
The cognitive dissonance of ‘my body my choice’
Unless you’ve been living under a giant rock, you must have heard the slogan ‘my body, my choice’. Four short and simple words; an ad hominem that's become a sort of war cry for females across the English-speaking world. It’s a giant shield brought out in defence of any argument against abortion; it’s played as a trump card, the ‘beats rock, paper and scissors’ of this moral minefield.
It’s time to bin the label ‘toxic masculinity’
Since I’ve written quite a bit about women lately, I thought it was only fair that I also write about men – the fellas seem to have more than enough problems of their own. Men are far more likely than women to commit suicide, die in the workplace, die in combat, become victims of homicide... Continue Reading →

Abortion 101: The law, the stats, and the facts
If you read my previous post on abortion, you might wish to delve a little deeper into this issue. If you haven't read it, you can do so here.
This time, I decided to simply let the facts speak for themselves. I hope you'll find the following two bumper posts a helpful resource on the subject.
