Bullied by Love?

Many people claim to be Christian yet do some very anti-Christian things. In North America, we have politicians who go to church on Sunday and then enact unbiblical policies Monday.

COVID lockdown turns into free speech lockdown?

With one of the world’s most successful vaccination programs, Britain is on the verge of ending its lockdowns that were among the most restrictive in the western world. But recent access to information request revealed that with its lockdown soon to end, the government wants to extend its law banning protests.
