How can our government better support and foster human values?

Source http://slideplayer.com/slide/2437893/

In the lead-up to the Queensland State elections on 25th November the Archdiocese of Brisbane has  launched a public forum inviting  discussion on public policy and Catholic values.

Archbishop Mark Coleridge encourages participation in these words:

” I warmly invite you to contribute your thoughts on the ways you believe the future Queensland Government could better support families, particularly those who support Catholic values. We would like to see improvements in learning and education from a future government that reflects the core values of decency towards Queenslanders. 

Your feedback can help to continue shaping an environment for our children, anchored among Catholic values that include respect for others”

 
The heading for the online forum points to “human values” yet the blurb invites a reflection on “Catholic values” This itself is a good starting point for conversation.  So, away you go. Let’s build this conversation. The link is here
