I realise that the dark decisions taken by the British Parliament respecting Northern Ireland are not yet binding... although we are well aware that they shall be if the cartel of wicked men and women who voted in favour of these nefarious schemes have anything further to do with it. Some elements rose to the fore in our nation’s Parliament this week. One element was hypocrisy. The Scottish National Party further dishonoured itself in these votes. This party has made great noises in the past about abstaining on all votes that affect other devolved jurisdictions in order to ringfence their own issues. But here there was no such reticence. Another feature of the debates in Parliament was perversity. Since the measures passed by Parliament specifically target Ulster, I will respond in true Ulster fashion – by ‘calling a spade a spade’.Same-sex marriage is perverse. It is a perversion of God’s order, that marriage should only and always be … [Read more...] about On history’s side? I aim to be on eternity’s side

Aesop concludes his famous fable, "The wolf and the lamb" with these lines: "The tyrant can always find an excuse for his tyranny. The unjust will not listen to the reasoning of the innocent." Iran is hardly a lamb in international affairs since the so-called Islamic revolution of 1978, but there seems no issue emanating from the Iranian mullahs that could not have been negotiated and solved at the table. Presidents Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron followed the negotiations Brazil and Turkey started with Iran; consequently, China, France, Russia, the U.K., the U.S. and Germany signed the nuclear non-proliferation agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran. Until the Israeli prime minister jumped onto the podium at the U.N. General Assembly in September 2018 with some visuals he claimed from the secret Iranian nuclear sites, the U.S. and the world were satisfied with … [Read more...] about US playing all its cards wrong

opinion Randy Essex Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EDT Apr 16, 2019 Last week, bothered by yet another story of a middle-aged white guy with a dependable track record taking his own life, I shared my theory that the flip side of the American dream was a contributing factor. That little white boys are taught by implication that, with all the advantages we have in society, if don't attain adequate material success and prestige, it's because we aren't smart enough or didn't work hard enough. We are failures. The essay struck a chord, prompting widespread readership on the Detroit Free Press and USA TODAY, even being shared Monday morning by the Rev. Franklin Graham to his 7.5 million followers. It's clear that, like me, a lot of people are troubled and puzzled that rising suicide rates are epidemic among white males, who account for a vastly disproportionate number of these tragedies.

He was referring to the cardiologist's time working in a hospital in the city as he welcomed Mr Barrett and Mr Varadkar to the US Naval Observatory residence. The conservative Christian politician has been criticised for his views on LGBT issues and his opposition to same-sex marriage. But he was a gracious host at the annual St Patrick's week breakfast and he thanked Mr Varadkar, one of the world's few openly gay leaders, for visiting and "honouring us with your presence". However, it was not an occasion Mr Varadkar could allow pass without using the opportunity to highlight his own story and how he had, as a gay man, become the leader of a changed, tolerant Ireland. In carefully crafted words that will surely resonate with the LGBT community in the US, Mr Varadkar told how that country had inspired him to run for office and drive change in Ireland. He said he once lived in a country where if he had been himself he would have been breaking laws and now that has all changed. Mr … [Read more...] about ‘We are all God’s children’
