Reign of Terror

In a stiff Mao-style boiler-suit in a nauseous shade of near-turquoise, the ruthless dictator of more than a sixth of the global population celebrated the dismal centenary of the Chinese Communist Party, the most murderous political movement in the history of our race, by snarling that anyone who tried to tell China what to do would be dealt with by force. At a tediously typical copycat totalitarian military parade the usual procession of tanks and guns accompanied by goose-stepping soldiers … Read More

The Burning of Churches

It was the Church that first spoke out against Hitler, in the courageous sermons of Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich and in the encyclical Mit Brennender Sorge, drafted for Pope Pius XI by his successor, Pope Pius XII, while the rest of the world was appeasing the dictator. It was the Church, through the courage of countless priests and prelates, from Cardinal Mindszenty to Pope St. John Paul II, that implacably opposed Communism. The burning to the ground of a dozen … Read More

The Restoration of Public Morality

When Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for Health was secretly filmed in an amorous embrace with someone who was not his wife, he gave as his reason for resigning his high office his failure, by that furtive embrace, to keep a safe and infection-beating distance from a non-member of his household in accordance with pettifogging, incomprehensible and no longer necessary rules that he had himself eagerly inflicted upon everyone else. However, there was not a word of apology from Mr … Read More

Totalitarian Persecution

The Church has long been seen as the arch-enemy by totalitarians, who hate and fear the independent-mindedness and unwillingness to defer to any mere Party Line that are the glorious consequences of loyalty to God, country and family. The most effective tactic of totalitarian fanatics is organised reputational assault on all who have proven publicly successful in opposing their false ideology. Here, “false” has a particularly strong meaning: for the hallmark of totalitarianism, in all its forms, is its insistence … Read More

The Bible is Banned

Last time I told the story of how the governors of the once-Christian Trent College, a boys’ school in Nottinghamshire, had sacked their chaplain for having preached a sermon saying that pupils should feel free to adhere to the Church’s teaching that homosexuality was wrong. This issue, an even more shocking story. Some weeks ago a Methodist preacher, Pastor Sherwood, and his colleague Pastor Simpson were preaching in the street outside a London Underground station in the Prime Minister’s constituency, … Read More

Fascism Destroys Freedom

Less than 90 years after the rise of the tyranny of Hitler and the carbon-copy dictatorship of Mussolini, Christian pastors and teachers are once again being torn down, sometimes violently, from their pulpits and their blackboards. This time it is not happening in Germany but – of all places – in Britain, and with the explicit support, among others, of the dithering old fogeys who are headmaster and provost of Eton, the Governors of Trent College, Nottingham, and the Kommissar … Read More

Is Joe Biden Catholic

Say what you like about Donald Trump, he was the most Catholic-friendly President whom the United States has ever loved to hate. The heart of the message of the Lord of Life is love, and it is the antithesis of love to take the life of another, particularly where the victim is an innocent unborn child. Hear Psalm 139, in the sweet rhythms of the Bible – For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s … Read More

Vatican Climate Catastrophe?

The Vatican, having embarrassed the Church with numerous errors about climate science is at it again, this time still more embarrassingly. In a silly foreword to a document from the Holy See entitled Pastoral Guidelines on Climate-Displaced People, it maunders: “We are engulfed by news and images of whole peoples uprooted by cataclysmic changes in our climate – forced to migrate … people driven out because their local environment has become uninhabitable … the deteriorating climate … crisis unfolding since … Read More

Hip Hip Hooray for Scotland

By the Act of Union between England and Scotland in 1707, Scotland retained its own legal jurisdiction. By more recent and less well-thought-through legislation, Scotland now has what it likes to call its own “Government” and what its citizens call the “daft wee parliament” at Holyrood in Edinburgh. The daft wee parliament – also known as the Numptorium – is dominated by Communists masquerading as Scottish nationalists. The Communists, of course, want to leave the UK and rejoin the European … Read More

The United Nations is coming for your Children

At the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, now in session, the Communists who now control most such supranational entities have infiltrated a far-out Left, feminist manifesto into the draft recommendations, which are always carefully prepared in advance and very nearly always nodded through unopposed by For instance, “Guarantee access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)”. The use of the calculatedly obscurantist acronym will eventually replace the weasel words “sexual and reproductive health and rights”, for … Read More
