Last week saw a devastating blow for disability rights as the High Court ruled that allowing abortion up to full term for disability is not discriminatory. The legal challenge is headed by Heidi Crowter, a 26 year-old woman with Down’s syndrome. Heidi, supported by Máire Lea-Wilson, as well as her family, her husband and campaign group Don’t Screen...

If you know me in real life or follow me on Twitter (pls don’t follow me in real life), you may already be aware of this news. If you’re not, I’m very excited to announce that my first book has just been published. Here’s the backstory: Have you ever seen a gap in the market?... Continue Reading →
Hello friends. I’ve had this topic in the back of my mind for a few years and finally(!) got round to writing something on it. This was kind of inspired by some research I’ve been doing lately about New Age in the Church, as well as things I’ve found out by accident about things I... Continue Reading →
If you heard that your favourite Christian preachers and teachers were teaching you some very false or twisted things, what would you do? Would you: ‘Ignore the haters’ who are just trying to cause division in the body of ChristBriefly consider the possibility, but brush it off because these people seem authentic, your experience tells...

N.B: I’ve been flipflopping on whether to share this for some time. As I’ll explain later, I eventually decided to post for the sake of anyone reading who might need to hear it. This experience happened three years ago. I’m okay - sometimes you gotta learn the hard way. I just don’t want others to... Continue Reading →
I don’t know about you, but bar a gin and tonic on a hot day, there are few things more refreshing in life than hearing a good honest take on something few seem to want to talk about.
After two weeks in quarantine following an impromptu Portugal getaway (sorry bank account), I finally escaped prison and grabbed a couple of drinks with a pal of mine. This pal made the decision some months back to give his life to Christ, and even without the Covid craziness, this has been such a highlight this year.
I’m constantly in awe of how intensely personal and beautifully faithful God is, and for anyone who’s seen someone come to know Jesus for themselves, you know what I mean. You probably also know what I mean when I say that there’s a contagious excitement about being around a person who has grasped the beauty of the gospel for the first time. Reignition for a weary soul.
It seems to be common experience that wherever you lift the lid on some kind of evil, you are sure to find more layers of evil underneath. Recently the interdependence of three particularly insidious industries has been thrown into sharp relief. *Trigger warning – the below discusses some sensitive matter* A couple of weeks back,...

This week has been full of dramatic events (and no, I’m not referring to the pointless mini-dramas of my own life... those tend to be eye-roll worthy, but not blog-worthy).
A poor tourist in a caravan got swept off a cliff in Ireland, Brexit is only six months away (pause to cheer or sob uncontrollably), and Naz Shah, Labour’s shadow minister for equalities, said that pre-natal testing for gender is bad because it allows women to abort baby girls (but it’s apparently still ok to screen for Down’s syndrome).
Unless you’ve been living under a giant rock, you must have heard the slogan ‘my body, my choice’. Four short and simple words; an ad hominem that's become a sort of war cry for females across the English-speaking world. It’s a giant shield brought out in defence of any argument against abortion; it’s played as a trump card, the ‘beats rock, paper and scissors’ of this moral minefield.
Since I’ve written quite a bit about women lately, I thought it was only fair that I also write about men – the fellas seem to have more than enough problems of their own. Men are far more likely than women to commit suicide, die in the workplace, die in combat, become victims of homicide... Continue Reading →
