An article I wrote for Convivium Magazine on atheists who recognize that Christianity is fundamental to the survival of the West was republished by Mercatornet, an Australian publication. It has since taken off after being posted by Niall Ferguson, Lee Strobel, Peter Hitchens, Ed West (of Unherd), historian Tom Holland, Andrew T. Walker, and others, creating quite a lot of great discussion—including a column in National Review discussing the thesis further.

Washington needs voices like his.

BBC has a beautiful article titled “Pandemic pregnancy: ‘Our baby lived for two precious days.’” This line stood out to me: “At the first scan, their baby was diagnosed with Edwards’ syndrome, a condition that few children survive. They were offered terminations but, ‘as he was still alive, I couldn’t do it,’ says Jessica.” That is 100% true—and it is true when the BBC is promoting abortion on demand and defending late-term abortion. As always, the schizophrenia of the media can be bewildering.

This is increasingly happening as children are exposed to gender ideology at skyrocketing rates.
