Reading Time: 8 minutes Is the act of engaging in the utilization of preferred pronouns an empathetically nuanced expression of neo-etiquette, or does it conceal a more ominous agenda behind its application, whether deliberately contrived or inadvertently present? The author aims to present a counterargument against the usage of preferred pronouns, presenting secular, linguistic, and theological justifications for abstaining from their utilisation.
Reading Time: 15 minutes Cancel culture is probably the best and simplest place to start. This social phenomenon signifies the convergence of individuals who coalesce and function as “swarm bots” mobilising collectively to counteract perceived threats to their deeply ingrained “cultural” values.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Although, it is worth noting that the field of Christian apologetics is diverse, the current state of Christian apologetics falls short of its potential, often focusing on trendy topics and repetitively using outdated arguments. This phenomenon, which the author refers to as “Pop-Apologetics,” is marked by an excessive preoccupation with engaging with movements like Neo-Atheism, resulting in unproductive debates. Furthermore, it is accompanied by a reliance on tired and formulaic arguments that fail to breathe new life into meaningful discussions. This shallow approach to apologetics is often intertwined with a strain of what the Author calls “Prosperity Apologetics”, a term that should be self explanatory.

However, questions concerning the negative effects of their implementation have arisen, regarding whether academic freedom, professorial prerogatives and the ability of faculty to teach and conduct research without risk of sanctions by official interference, or to professional disadvantage, are sustained by the members of its community.
Reading Time: 8 minutes “Cults are systems of social control. They are …….organizations whose aims (be they money, power, sex or something else) are rooted in submission to a dogma manifested by an authority figure: a charismatic preacher or, say, a tenured professor.” (Marzoni 2018)
Reading Time: 8 minutes Christianity, by its complacency and lack of courage, on the one part and not being able to predict what it’s enemies would do next, on the other, allowed the open ground for the “New Left” to come in with its Cultural Marxism, who understood that values are pivotal to all politics and human life. “[I]nterests are not given but have to be politically and ideologically constructed”.
