BBC shows My Scientology Movie

BBC 2 showed Louis Theroux's 2015 documentary My Scientology Movie last night. It demonstrates yet another example of the cynical manipulation of mankind's religious conscience.  It is but one of many examples.  Theroux could not understand how intelligent, apparently normal, kind, well-meaning people, and Tom Cruise is one of the most high-profile scientologists, could be …

Revisiting the 1967 Abortion Act

The 50th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act made the BBC revisit the debate about abortion in The Moral Maze.  Confusion, obfuscation and biblical illiteracy are still the order of the day. The debate proceeded along the usual lines to little effect, so it is worth recording here a list of the topics which are …
