Radio 4 Minutes

(Radio) 4 minutes of comic genius. Enjoy. 

Gospel perspective adjustment

Here's a perspective on life not often heard (I expect) in the Scottish Parliament:

And here is another perspective: 
“Let me entreat you to be far from the thoughts of leaving this land. I see it, and find it, that the Lord hath covered the whole land with a cloud in his anger; but though I have been tempted to the like, I had rather be in Scotland beside angry Jesus Christ, knowing He mindeth no evil to us, than in any Eden or garden on the earth.” [Samuel Rutherford]
More strong words from a Scot who was entranced by the person, the works and the promises of Jesus Christ.

Lions Down Under

Looks like this must have been a load of fun to film:

How could they do that to a baby?

That is what people are saying after a newborn baby boy in China seems to have been flushed down a public toilet. 'How could the parents do that to a baby?'

But we should know exactly how they can do that to a baby. We are doing worse, not in extremely rare cases, but to a fifth of babies here in the UK:
In 1967, the Abortion Act came into force, resulting in a huge surge in the number of abortions performed in the UK. The ratio of abortions to life births increased from 1 in 46 in 1966 to 1 in 3.8 in 2010. That's right, for every four children that make it as far as the delivery room, one was deliberately killed in the womb. Next time see a handful of kids playing in the park, spare a thought for the one who never got the chance. [this comes from Steve Jeffrey's blog post: The Truth about Life Expectancy]
And all off this hot on the heels of the conviction of Dr Kermit Gosnell in the States. The moral high ground is not geographically located in the 'West' on this one.

A Case Study in Conformism

Brendan O'Neill writes perceptively in this article about the intellectual and rhetorical landscape of the last decade's so called 'debate' over same-sex marriage. You might say he writes bravely even. And that, really, is his point. 

In the course of his piece he quotes Christopher Caldwell's paper 'Gay Rites':
 ‘Public opinion does not change this fast in free societies. Either opinion is not changing as fast as it appears to be, or society is not as free.’

Science Fiction

I was reading about idols as objects of mockery this morning in Jeremiah 10:15. 
And then this video shows up on my youtube page.
Huh! The idol of history (amongst others) gets what is coming!
