February 8th, 2019 | Freedom, Freedom of Speech, Islam
Is Islam affecting our freedom of speech? Is it altering our democracy? Roger Kiska looks at the recent ruling of an Austrian woman convicted of ‘hate speech’ for suggesting a truth about Muhammad, and concludes that if we are to uphold freedom of speech, then “offence is a small price to pay”.

In 1989, an Iranian 'fatwa' was issued calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie following the publication of his book, 'The Satanic Verses'. 30 years on, Tim Dieppe looks into how this event has caused the fear of religious offence - particularly fear of appearing Islamophobic - to censure our freedom of speech and expression.
February 5th, 2019 | Church and State
Has the Church today rejected God? Joe Boot argues that “faithlessness, disobedience, rebellion, sexual perversion and the misuse of God’s resources” marks “large parts of the modern egalitarian church” – much as in Samuel’s time. Joe looks back through Scripture to Hannah and Samuel and asks what we can learn from the lawlessness of Israel in Samuel’s time that we can use to bring “regeneration and reformation”.
When same-sex marriage was passed, provisions were included to stop clergy from having to solemnise the ceremonies. Today, the House of Lords debated an amendment to remove this key protection. Although the Bishop of Chelmsford opposed the amendment, he spoke about the CofE working closely with Stonewall and held out the prospect that church doctrine on homosexuality could change. After the government opposed the amendment, it was withdrawn. Tim Dieppe analyses the debate.
This week, a man was investigated by Humberside Police Force for sharing a poem that denied transgender ideology. Carys Moseley looks into the impact that this investigation could have on society, calling it the lastest example of policing ‘thoughtcrime’.

If the truth about our broken family culture concerns us, we must be willing to hear the 'controversial' truth that children do best with a mother and a father. The Christian Legal Centre's Roger Kiska looks into Richard Page's case to see the impact of political correctness on children, and concludes that if you hold a view that is out of step with culture, you may not be free to express it.

The Council of Europe has passed a hard-hitting resolution this week which calls on the UK to take six specific actions in relation to the influence of Sharia law. Tim Dieppe welcomes the points made and shows how Sharia law is, practically speaking, incompatible with human rights.
