Bringing freedom and order together in a fallen world (15 Feb 18)
Document access: Subscriber, Member The recent plebiscite on same-sex (or any gender) marriage has raised a number of issues for Australian society, and indeed, for Western societies in general. A key concern is that of the basis upon which Western laws operate. Over the last two hundred years or so, the notion has grown that Western secular societies operate best in a context of maximised freedom standing on a thin moral base. Paradoxically, this has led to those who are most vehement in favour of homosexual rights to be most coercive when it comes to legislation.

Islam and women - stories from behind the veil (15 Nov 17)
Document access: Subscriber, Member There is more to it than meets the eye of the beholder... A few years ago when I was on talk back radio, a young lady phoned in from interstate. She told me she was a Muslim and wanted to ask some questions. To provide some context I asked where she had gone to school.

The very institution of marriage has been called into question, with more and more Australian public figures each year calling for marriage to be redefended to include same-sex couples.

Euthanasia: are the risks too great? (15 Feb 17)
Document access: Subscriber, Member Not all pain can be effectively managed, whether physical or psychological. In the face of unmanageable pain, some people express a clear desire to end their life. For most of us, witnessing great suffering by another person, particularly a loved one, prompts a strong desire to find a way to end that suffering. That is why many of the people who have a desire and willingness to give assistance to these wishes do so out of compassion and love.

Physical discipline: is it ever OK? (15 Aug 16)
Document access: Subscriber, Member In March 2014, an Adelaide father faced court on an aggravated assault charge for smacking his 12-year-old-son. The father - an Air Force pilot "of excellent character and work ethic" - shared custody of his son with his former wife, whose approach to parenting he considered "very laissez-faire."
