Is that what the Church wants?” Cardinal Robert Sarah posed this question in an interview given to journalist Laurent Dandrieu on the 27th of March for the French conservative weekly magazine Valeurs Actuelle. “The Church,” Cardinal Sarah said, “cannot cooperate with this new form of slavery that mass migration has become.  … Read More

Bring Him Home?

Leo Varadkar wants to allow captured ISIS terrorists to be brought back to Ireland! The Taoiseach is willing to risk the security of Irish people Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, speaking at the first EU-Arab League of States summit in Egypt in recent days, said that he would allow ISIS members captured abroad, who hold Irish citizenship, to be brought back to Ireland.  At best the Taoiseach is naïve and underestimates the threat these people would pose.  At worst he is willing … Read More

But modern civilised societies in the developed world have safeguards to protect them and laws to treat them as equals. When it comes to categorically victimising and degrading women, however, there is no system more effective than Islam.

This coyly irreverent pun was the … Read More
