Monica Doumit: Undermining dissent in the UK

I imagine that many of you have engaged in, or at least read, some fairly heated online discussions about the same-sex marriage postal survey since it was announced three months ago. When Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP posted his on Facebook, it attracted more than 7000 comments. People on either side of the debate have been […]


Monica Doumit: Gathering statistics for the naked emperor

Friends, the post- same-sex marriage world is a brave, new one. This is what we are seeing coming from the United Kingdom at the moment. I’m not sure if you saw what is happening with the UK Census. In 2015, the UK Office of National Statistics conducted a consultation about what additional questions/topics should be […]


Monica Doumit: Enough lies, start listening to our palliative carers

This week, the Victorian Parliament began debating legislation which would permit the legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide in that state. It is unsurprising that this is happening in Victoria: with the most liberal abortion laws in the world, and its push to make the “Safe Schools” program compulsory at the same time that other […]

Unity the true fruit of ‘OK to say No’ campaign

For the last few weeks, we have looked at how a change in the law will affect education, particularly the introduction of LGBTIQ sex and gender education in schools and the loss of the rights of parents to object to – or even know about –what they are being taught. We also considered how a change […]


Monica Doumit: Stand up to the hate, strong in faith

Over the past week, I had the privilege of attending two of the campaign launches for the Coalition for Marriage: the national launch in Sydney and the smaller state-based launch in Victoria, which occurred on Saturday night of last week. While the other launches went off largely without incident, the Melbourne one was interrupted by […]


Monica Doumit: Same-sex marriage – suborning the professionals

I spent five and a half years studying to get my law degree. I made good friends, enjoyed the subject matter and am grateful for the opportunities it gave me. But it was also hard work. I read countless pages of textbooks, court judgments and journal articles, prepared long, analytical essays, and studied for more […]


Monica Doumit: The real targets of gay marriage are students

Given that 3 September is Father’s Day, I thought I would start my analysis with a story about a dad. Steve Tourloukis is a Canadian father of primary school aged kids, who have been raised in the Greek Orthodox faith. Among other things, this included teaching his children that sexual activity should be reserved for […]

This Victorian mother’s protest video, made once she discovered what the ‘Safe Schools’ program was teaching her children, has gone viral. She is urging other parents to investigate and take a stand against the program created by LGBTI activists and implemented by ideologues and education bureaucrats.

Monica Doumit: ‘Equality’ leaves parents in the dark

Nearly four million people have seen the video of a Victorian mother of four talking about Safe Schools, and if you’re not one of them, then I recommend you take a look. Describing herself as “desperate,” the mother recorded a 14-minute video trying to encourage other Victorian parents to stand up against the deceptively-named program. […]

Monica Doumit: ABC article on domestic violence a ‘blatant misrepresentation’

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to speak to Year 12 students about potential biases in the media when it comes to the Church. Not one of the students I addressed got their news from what were traditionally considered to be mainstream sources: television, radio or print. Without exception, Facebook (and the online […]

Eugenics to blame for why we will fail the next ‘Charlie Gard’

For those unfamiliar with his story, Charlie Gard is a British baby just a couple of weeks shy of his first birthday. He suffers from a rare inherited mitochondrial disease referred to as MDDS, a condition which has kept him in hospital and ventilator-dependent for the past 10 months. While no treatment is available in […]


Monica Doumit: I thought I couldn’t be shocked, but I was wrong

You wouldn’t know it from the thousands of articles which were written last week, but very little information about the case involving Cardinal George Pell is available. We know that multiple charges from multiple complainants have been laid by Victoria Police. We know that the Cardinal has taken a leave of absence from his position […]
