I love men. I love everything about them that makes them men. But times are tough for the average white, heterosexual male.
Statewide lockdowns are abhorrent, immoral and unnecessary
So I've been very quiet on the covid-front, but I felt a moral imperative to write something about the lockdowns, which have moved into outright tyranny, in my view, and I think it's important to share this.
Why Coronavirus might not be such a bad thing after all…
So since my impassioned letter to the Sydney Archbishop, my perspective on the ban on religious services has changed.
My Letter to the Archbishop of Sydney
For those unaware, the Australian Government has issued a ban on any nonessential indoor gatherings of more than 100 people.

Bringing back the 12 Days of Christmas
Several years ago I discovered a delightful little book called The Jane Austen Handbook: Proper Life Skills from Regency England, full of tidbits and instructions about life in Austen's day. (Side note: if you're a Jane Austen fan you should seriously consider getting it.) However, the chapter that captured my attention most was the last: … Continue reading Bringing back the 12 Days of Christmas
Reclaiming Masculinity in the Church

The first movie I ever watched at the cinema was Disney's Beauty and the Beast, when I was four or five years old. Like most little girls, I absolutely adored them and fell in love with the … Continue reading Did Disney sell us a lie?
Restoring our communities
Last night, our parish held a dinner and bush dance. Apart from the fact that I love dancing, I was eager to help run this event because I felt it tied in very closely with my own concerns about our lack of community within the Church.
Christian dating in a post-Christian world
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had recorded a podcast with Fishers of Men host Mary Ashley Burton. The episode has just been released! I had a chance to listen to it today and am pleased to report that I'm getting gradually less squeamish about hearing my voice on audio 🙂
Helping your child find the right spouse
A little while ago, I received the following email from a reader: Maybe it's not a spot-on topic vis-a-vis your article, but I would like practical ideas as to what those of us who are parents of boys (I have 3) can do to ensure that they (1) are encouraged to marry orthodox Catholic women and (2) find orthodox Catholic women to marry!
My ABC Radio interview
I was recently contacted by our national broadcaster, ABC, to speak about the issues raised in my article. Here is the result.
Why Taylor Swift should leave politics alone
Taylor Swift has released the second single from her upcoming album Lover, called 'You Need To Calm Down'. The catchy track marks a departure from Tay-Tay's previous image, with the top-selling singer becoming much more openly political than ever before. Here's why that's a problem.
