Tim Dieppe reviews new book, The Virtue of Nationalism, by Israeli academic Yoram Hazony.

In February, Christian Legal Centre’s Roger Kiska appeared before a parliamentary select committee as the only pro-life representative, giving evidence on the issue of decriminalising abortion in Northern Ireland. The evidence he presented moved some members to take up his position. Roger now comments on the report published by the House of Commons, which sadly promotes the liberalisation of abortion.
This month, the government of the Cayman Islands won the right to appeal a Supreme Court judgment which would introduce gay ‘marriage’. But the push for same-sex ‘marriage’ appears to be global. Carys Moseley comments on the threat it poses to traditional marriage and Christianity.
