RELIGION IN RUSSIA Betrayal: Curia no friend to Russian Catholics
The tiny Russian Catholic Church, which suffered the savagery of communism for over seven decades, has, at least in operational terms, fared little better since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. But this time, the cause was not communist apparatchiks. It was the Vatican’s Curia.

HISTORY OF TAIWAN From pivot of Dutch trade to Japanese outpost
The Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie in Dutch, known as the VOC) was one of the most successful private companies in the history of the world. The aim of the VOC was to monopolise the East Indian spice trade and therefore extinguish competition, both within Holland and from other European powers. From the time it was chartered in 1602 until its dismemberment due to corruption and bankruptcy almost 200 years later, it paid an 18 per cent annual dividend.

RELIGION AND SOCIETY A welcome in truth for the same-sex attracted
Recently, my dear friend Diane was lamenting the fact that there are few places for Christians who experience same-sex attraction and wish to be faithful to Christian teaching to deal openly and honestly with those issues. Our culture’s sexual floodtide is breaching many individuals’ and churches’ fidelity to truth, and now, post-Obergefell, there is mounting pressure on traditional morality “hold-outs” to give in and affirm all sexual acts as long as they are consensual. Thus “safe spaces” for Christians like Diane and me are fewer and farther between.

CINEMA The beauty beyond fear: The Good Dinosaur
The Good Dinosaur is a beautiful film. It is a simple story, much simpler than the stories Pixar usually tells. Rather than intricate in-jokes and multilayered references, The Good Dinosaur focuses on the story of a boy trying to find his way home, and the things he finds on his way there, including who he is.

BOOK REVIEW Secularism mars insights
These words, usually attributed to Hermann Göring, have come back to haunt us because, nowadays, a great many people regard “culture” (in the old sense of the word) as having been usurped by something which, indeed might give us cause to reach for a gun! Among those with such concerns is Mario Vargas Llosa, the Latin American author and Nobel-prize winner who is also the author of this collection of essays under review.
