Patriotic People's Populist Media

In Denmark The Danish Ministry of Justice released a statement stipulating that they are planning to ban the Burqa (full-face Veil) and fine people that refuse to stop wearing it.

The Danish Ministry of Justice stated: “In Denmark, we will meet each other properly – face to face,” And basically went on to say that in Danish society you must be able to see each others faces to identify them. Swedish media SVT reported. 

If the ban takes effect, it will also include balaclavas, if you break this law you will get a 1,000 Krone (£119/$166) fine if you repeat the crime again you might be handed a £900/$1,257 fine. There was talk about a three month custodial sentence but this was not included.

It’s a bit different from the Austrian burqa ban, that outlaws all full-face covering even silly things like Halloween outfits, The Danes will have a few sensible exceptions like wearing scarves and…

Personal Blog of Dr. Radosveta Vassileva

In December 2017, shortly before the Bulgarian government officially announced its priorities for its Presidency of the Council of the EU, I published a blog post entitled ‘The Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU: The Emperor Has No Clothes.’ I explained why it is troublesome that a state which repeatedly violates EU law and struggles with corruption would set the agenda of the Council and why it has no capacity to lead in any of the areas it chose to focus on during the Presidency.

Following the inauguration of the Presidency, reputable international media opted for the same angle. Journalists from the UK, Spain, Germany, Denmark, etc. were also troubled by the challenges Bulgaria faces regarding the rule of law, its shrinking economy, and its demographic crisis. In fact, a recent UN report shows Bulgaria has the fastest shrinking population in the world. This is not surprising…

UPDATE: Bible Matters is now available in the United States from InterVarsity Press. Bible Matters is available here from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

My latest book is Bible Matters: Meeting God in His Word is published in the UK by IVP next week as part of the Keswick Foundations Series. There is also a companion study guide entitled Hearing God’s Word. Both the book and the study guide are being published together in one volume in the US from InterVarsity Press in January 2018.

It is, as the title suggests, a book on the Bible and covers a number of the issues you might expect – the authority, sufficiency, clarity and interpretation of the Bible. What’s distinctive is a focus on the relational and intentional (or covenantal) nature of the Bible. The Bible is not simply a book of information about God (though it is that). It is…

Islamism in Canada is a real and present danger. What is Islamism? Islamism is  forms of social and political activism advocating that public and political life should be guided by Islamic principles, or more specifically to movements which call for full implementation of sharia.

One of the reasons that I wanted to rally in front of Nathan Phillips Square was because of an event that happened there last June. However, out of deference for the ‘memorial’ being held there, we have decided to rally at Mel Lastman Square. An event at Toronto city hall slipped past most people’s consciousness, but in my mind, it was a huge indication of what is happening in our country. Last June, during Ramadan, Toronto city councillor Neethan Shan brought forward the idea that it would be great for the Muslim community to break Ramadan fast, or Iftar, in Toronto city hall…

Book Review: A Pillar of Iron: A Novel of Ancient Rome by Taylor Caldwell

Four Stars

“Republics decline into democracies and democracies degenerate into despotisms.” Aristotle

Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) is probably the most important man in history most of us never heard of. That he was one of Rome’s greatest orators and writers is secondary to his impact on modern western political thought. “The influence of Cicero upon the history of European literature and ideas greatly exceeds that of any other prose writer in any language,” wrote classicist Michael Grant. Cicero’s thoughts undergirded much of the Renaissance and Enlightenment. America’s founders often quoted the Roman.

“His own existence was less secure because his father no longer existed. Another statue had crashed in his hall of life and its senseless rubble littered the floor.”

Taylor Caldwell tried to change that in 1965 with this historical fiction biography. Drawing…

Refugee Resettlement Watch

Update: Leo Hohmann has more on this story at his new website, here.

In his argument posted atThe Guardian, he says more legal pathways are needed because they (from the third world) are coming illegally (whether we like it or not).  Sounds like blackmail to me!

He also confirms my oft-repeated contention that it is the desire by industries for labor that we should be satisfying in the new borderless (dream) world.

Aspiring migrants, denied legal pathways to travel, inevitably fall back on irregular methods. This not only puts them in vulnerable positions, but also undermines governments’ authority. The best way to end the stigma of illegality and abuse around migrants is, in fact, for governments to put in place more legal pathways for migration, removing the incentives for individuals to break the rules, while better meeting the needs of their labour markets for foreign labour
