  • Do We Need To Pick a Side? What We Can Learn From “Lamb Side Story”
    by Juan Mendoza on 15 January, 2018 at 3:54 am

    Once again the Meat and Livestock Australia Association has shocked and divided opinion among Australians last week with the most recent installment in their iconic lamb ad, entitled “Lamb Side Story.” The summer lamb ads have become somewhat of a tradition on Aussie TV screens, with “lambassador” Sam Kekovich playing the defender of the Australian spirit, berating those who act un-Australian, often sparking outrage. In West Side Story fashion, the ad shows the political left and right battling over last year’s hottest political and cultural topics, such as same sex marriage, global warming, the definition of Christmas, gender theory and...

  • Does Suffering Mean There’s No God?
    on 12 January, 2018 at 2:31 am

    Quick Questions About Christianity Terrible things happen in this world and no one can pretend to really understand why. Even the Bible acknowledges that this question is beyond the wisest person (Ecclesiastes 8:14-17).

In fact we might even say that the fact that we recognise suffering as evil (especially other people’s), shows that we know the world isn’t supposed to be like that.[1] Here (very briefly!) are some the ways...

    It’s 3am, I’m outside the local government prefecture sandwiched between an Algerian and a Turk, waiting in a queue of 50-60 people to be among the first twenty-five who will receive an appointment for their titre de séjour, the card that means they can stay in France another year. People lean against the rough concrete wall, swapping stories about bumbling bureaucracies and long-ago lives in other countries. Some sleep sprawled out in folding chairs, the lucky ones steal away to snatch an hour or two in their cars. This social psychologists’ experiment spontaneously produces “the list” each night—a badly ruled,...

  • Why Bother with Church?
    on 10 January, 2018 at 5:48 am

    Quick Questions About Christianity One common objection to the Christian faith these days comes from people who basically like what they have heard about Jesus Christ but are turned off by the idea of belonging to a church. Some, have had a negative experience in a church, others are turned off by religion’s bad reputation; others just don’t like the idea of organised religion and would prefer to worship God on their own. It’s not hard to empathise with these feelings. Bad things do go on in churches. There are squabbles, factions and jealousies between church members just as there...
