  • Theresa May took part in a panel talk with an anti-gay pastor on Sunday.

    The prime minister joined Reverend Agu Iruweku for a church service followed by a question and answer session.

    Rev Iruweku, a senior pastor of Jesus House in London since 1994, has been criticised for his views on homosexuality which adhere to traditional biblical teaching.

  • A teachers union spokesperson says the Prime Minister's comments about gender neutral uniforms may have disappointed some students, as he appeared confused about the issue.

    Mr English was asked by media on Monday about the Post Primary Teachers' Association (PPTA)'s recommendation for schools to introduce gender neutral uniforms.

    He said that the Government "will not be focusing on transgender uniforms".

  • According to a chaplain, Friday's massacre of 29 Coptic Christians who were on their way to a monastery in Egypt occurred after Islamic radicals marched them off the bus one by one and asked them to deny their faith in Jesus Christ.

    A priest identified as Father Rashed, a chaplain for one of the groups comforting the survivors of the attack, said in an article in Breitbart News on Sunday that 10 masked Islamic State militants did not simply open fire on the bus on its way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confessor.

    Instead, the IS radicals apparently stopped the bus, made the victims walk out, and asked each of them, including the children, whether they were Christians.

  • The Church of England is to vote on creating an official 'baptism-style' service to celebrate when transgender Christians change sex.

    The controversial motion has dismayed traditionalists, who say the Bible teaches that gender is God-given.

    But liberals said vicars have been forced to devise unofficial services to welcome sex-change worshippers and the Church should demonstrate its unambiguous acceptance of transsexuals.

  • There's one headline you didn't read in the aftermath of the Manchester attack:

    Isis celebrates 'crusaders' attack and vows further violence against Christians

    Sounds silly, I know. But look at what Isis actually said in their statement after the bombing.

  • A Conservative candidate hoping to return to parliament at the general election accepted a donation from a Christian organisation that has funded "gay cure" events and is a member of a group of churches accused of trying to "heal" LGBT people, BuzzFeed News can reveal.

    Caroline Ansell, who won Eastbourne with a slim majority of 733 in 2015, received funds in the form of an intern, for four days a week, from the Christian Action Research and Eduction (CARE) charity.

    According to the registers of MP's interests – the official documents in which politicians declare their donations – Ansell accepted the CARE intern in September 2016, who will remain in post until July 2017. The total value of this gift is stated as £8,470 as the intern is "voluntary" (unpaid) but receives a £770-per-month bursary.

  • Intelligence officers have identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in Britain as potential terrorist attackers, it emerged yesterday.

    The scale of the challenge facing the police and security services was disclosed by Whitehall sources after criticism that multiple opportunities to stop the Manchester bomber had been missed.

    About 3,000 people from the total group are judged to pose a threat and are under investigation or active monitoring in 500 operations being run by police and intelligence services. The 20,000 others have featured in previous inquiries and are categorised as posing a "residual risk".

  • Here a quack, there a quack, everywhere a quack, quack! A quack is a fake doctor. You don't trust quacks to offer an accurate diagnosis of an ailment or a prescription for a cure. Quacks are expert at quacking. Quacks offer placebos and platitudes.

    When quacks take centre stage in leading the rituals of communal grief, their voices blend in with the therapeutic kitsch of teddy bears, candles, cartoons, murals, mosaics, flowers, flags, projections, hashtags, balloons, wreaths, lights, vigils, scarves and the goo and gunk of postmodern sanctimonious pap.

    The reader must decide if the voices of Britain's religious establishment wailing loudly after the tragic and horrific Manchester terrorist attack on Monday are quacks whose words will only serve to anaesthetise further a culture steeped in snowflake sentimentality.

  • In the 2017 general election, the Stonewall Manifesto is the root, sap and source of LGBTI policy aspirations of the main political parties in the United Kingdom, without exception. There is no effective opposition. Parties are aligning themselves with Stonewall's "Acceptance without Exception" campaign which aims to change the Equalities Act of 2010 to include 'gender identity' instead of 'gender reassignment' as an additional protected characteristic for "transgendered" people. This is the lynchpin by which gender and biology will forever part company in the United Kingdom and the new order of pansexual humanism will be formally ushered in.

  • The Church of England will be asked to denounce gay conversion, consider special services for transgender people and re-examine its teaching on marriage as between one man and one women in a raft of measures to be debated at its forthcoming General Synod meeting in July.

    In its first meeting since the surprise rejection of a bishops' report recommending keeping the status quo on marriage, the CofE's parliament will debate whether to join medical experts and condemn so-called 'gay cures' as 'unethical, harmful' and having 'no place in the modern world'.

    Tabled by senior synod member Jayne Ozanne, the private members motion has received strong support from synod members. Supporters say that it is likely to be fiercely opposed by a small segment of hardline conservatives, but opponents suggest that many middle of the road synod members will also be alarmed by the motion.
