Do you want a legal system, or a justice system?

I first met Martyn Iles in 2017 when Church And State (CAS) was in its infancy and he was still the Managing Director of the Human Rights Law Alliance (HRLA), defending religious liberty for people like me against strategic lawfare by the enemies of Christianity. My...

Payback “justice” is an insatiable beast

Perpetually outraged Senator Lidia Thorpe is a real life caricature of radical blacktivism, including the refusal to spell words correctly like a literate person. Apparently a basic level of literacy is “acting white”, a perverse attitude even President Obama rebuked....

Dave’s Bio, continued…

Christian by choice and conservative by coincidence, Dave is a writer & commentator on all things cultural & political. His area of special interest is the Biblical role of the Church – Christians – in politics & culture. He believes in objective Truth, personal responsibility & reliability, strong families & nations, maximum freedom and teeny tiny governments, and that all good laws flow from the Mind of God.

Dave’s videos, podcasts & writing feature expert interviews and commentary about important public issues. He interviews national & international thought leaders like professors & politicians, lecturers & lobbyists, industry and church leaders – all with very diverse backgrounds, worldviews and opinions about the issues that affect and shape our society.

Dave Pellowe contributed a chapter about freedom of religion in the Australian Constitution in the 2023 book, “The Spirit Behind The Voice – The Religious Dimension of the “Voice” Proposal“, edited by Gabriël Moens AM and Professor Augusto Zimmermann.

Dave Pellowe has also recently begun helping right thinking authors to self publish with better marketing and profits with his publishing brand, Locke Press.

Dave’s first hand political experience includes being a successful local election campaign media consultant and then campaign director (winning a very safe seat from Labor). Dave served the Family First Party for many state & federal elections on the Queensland State Executive until the party eventually merged with the Australian Conservatives.

He has been independent of any political party since taking up commentary.
