Can you trust Christians?

It is common to hear people complain that they cannot trust such and such a person, particularly politicians. It is a blanket statement, showing how little thought they have given to the subject.

Continuing partnership confusion

Civil partnerships are changing, slowly catching up with the Scottish Christian Party. The Scottish Christian Party (SCP) correctly predicted that civil partnerships were a stepping stone towards redefining marriage to include homosexual partnerships.

The BBC and the democratic deficit

Voters complain that they hear from would-be politicians only at election time. The fact is that most voters don't want to hear from would-be politicians at any time but only from those who are already in power or likely to be helped by their political party to gain power. The same is true of the …
