Just a little puzzle to keep you all going through the dog days of summer, or, for our southern hemisphere readers, the storm-tossed days of winter.
Hidden in the grid of letters are the surnames of thirty-four Presidents of the United States of America. The name of another President of the U.S.A. ...Read More...

I had become aware of the ‘gender segregation at university events’ issue just a little time before Esme published her excellent report about it here at The Iconoclast. By the time I read her article I had already sent off an email to Universities UK expressing my displeasure. Here is the ...Read More...

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men,
undergo the fatigues of supporting it." - Thomas Paine.
Some of you may have wondered why I stopped writing my NER Kalendar at the eighth of June – in 'Dies Gloriae, XXIII: From The Saint Of Lightning To The Saint ...Read More...

Imagine for a moment or two, if you will, that you are a member of a group of people, or a club, or some organisation or other that brings its members together regularly in one place. Now imagine that you have joined the other members of your imaginary organisation in your regular place of meeting.
With ...Read More...

You know, when something like the murder of that poor, innocent soldier, Drummer Private Lee Rigby, a glorious warrior who served his country well, occurs on the streets of London we all look at the men who did it and ask ourselves why and how could they ...Read More...

"Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei,
quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit."
(“And do not listen to those who keep saying, 'The voice of the people is the voice of God,'
because the tumult of the crowd is always close to madness.”) ...Read More...

This week my selected saints are mostly drawn from the ranks of those who fought against paganism – including against the pagan Mohammedans. Modern paganism, which is also represented here (see my saint for the seventeenth of this month – below), is a pernicious evil that has reared its ...Read More...

This weeks saints and sainted people are a mixed bunch. There are widows who rose above their trials and tribulations and achieved great things; there are saints who aided us in our ongoing struggle against the demonic Mohammedan horde; there is a Pope who inadvertently helped in the creation of our ...Read More...

In the process of compiling this NER Kalendar I could have taken the easy way out: I could simply have lined up all the saints who were murdered by the godless and blaspheming Mohammedans and assigned one of them to each day of the year. There would have been more than enough of them to go around; I ...Read More...

Slowly, year by year, the list of cities in which the depraved Mohammedans have committed atrocities grows longer. Inexorably, murderous offence piles upon murderous offence. City after city erects its memorial to its slaughtered innocents. Family after family mourns its martyred dead. Mohammedan terrorist ...Read More...

My apologies to anyone waiting for the next in my series of 'Dies Gloriae' posts. The seventeenth weekly instalment has been delayed owing to a hand injury that is seriously impeding my ability to type with any great speed. I will put up the finished post in about forty-eight hours time...Read More...

This sennight I’m going to recommend to you some very strange people to you as worthy of your prayers. I’m going to identify the source of the blood-libel against the Jews and I’m going to explore a cross-dressing saint. There will also be the usual helping of almost unknown martyrs, ...Read More...

Let me start this post by saying that the devil-crazed Mohammedans, in a vain attempt to justify their satan-given beliefs, often claim that Christian teachings became corrupted as they were transmitted down the ages. They also wilfully and deliberately pretend to misunderstand those teachings in order ...Read More...

It is fondly, albeit erroneously, imagined by many people in the West today that the persecution of Christians is something that stopped completely when Constantine, the first Christian Emperor of Ancient Rome, embraced Christianity. Would that that were so. Today, Christians are the most persecuted ...Read More...

I am, as many of you have probably guessed by now, something of a fogey. However, that does not mean that I undervalue the female sex, nor does it mean that I think that they are in any way inferior to men – very different from men, infuriatingly so on occasions, I find, but equal to men in all ...Read More...

In my post yesterday I tried to tell you just how bad things are in Britain and in Europe. Just so that you know that I wasn’t exaggerating please consider the following from EuropeNews:
Arne S., originally from Blankenberge, was sentenced on Wednesday, by the criminal court of Bruges, to ...Read More...

With one exception my saints for this week are from the British Isles, or highly pertinent to the British Isles, though even the exception is, in one vastly important way, as highly relevant to Britain as all the others. Most of them are also English or Irish, but all of them are important to the whole ...Read More...

"In the end, we will remember

but the silence of our friends."
Martin Luther King Jnr.
During the compiling of this NER Kalendar of saints two things have become obvious. Firstly, that the records of our past detail many, many very brave ...Read More...

In this 'Dies Gloriae' series of posts1 I have resisted the temptation to document all the various miracles attributed to the saints whom I have chosen to recommend to you. This is not because I, and others, do not believe that G-d might have chosen, and might so choose again in the future, ...Read More...

Gosh! Already we've reached Week Nine in the NER Kalendar1. It feels as if it were just yesterday that we were celebrating the Church's New Year (Advent), Christmas and the secular New Year. Even if one isn't a Christian I'm sure that those mid-winter celebrations enliven the gloomy ...Read More...

Well, that's hardly a surprise. Mohammedans, after all, worship satan, the father of lies, and their faith, such as it is, is driven in everything by the demons from the pit of hell -- and that, despite what some new age, knit your own muesli, touchy-feely pastor might tell you, has been the standard ...Read More...

The Great Christian Lessons consist of the four cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, restraint (or temperance), and courage (or fortitude), which come from ancient Greek philosophy, and the three theological ...Read More...

There have been, and, no doubt, there still are, sainted men and women who have given, and give, everything they were, and are, for the sake of humanity. In previous posts in this series1, and in some of my other posts here2, I have introduced a number of them. These remarkable people really did give ...Read More...
