- Lock me up, The Age, Letter to the editor, 17 July 2007.
OK, I confess. I recklessly loaned my phone to someone I didn’t know well. I also recklessly stopped to help a woman whose car had broken down. Then I recklessly paid for a man’s lunch when he couldn’t do so himself. Any one of them could have been a terrorist. I plead guilty. Please lock me up. I’m a danger to society. I’d rather die in prison for reckless acts of kindness than live a free man in a country where love, mercy and compassion are outlawed.

- Hate not at issue, The Age. Letter to the editor, 1 August 2005.
The Australia Institute homosexuality survey confuses homophobia with opinions about morality, “Homophobic? Us?” (The Age, 30⁄7). The question that has attracted the most attention was whether people thought homosexuality was immoral.It did not concern hate, fear or tolerance. It is possible to believe homosexuality is immoral without hating those who practise it, or fearing them. After all, most of us think stealing is immoral, but that doesn’t make us all thief-a-phobic, or fill us with hatred of shoplifters. The Australia Institute report seems to assume that anyone who considers homosexuality to be immoral is also homophobic.The Age article encouraged this assumption with headlines such as “Homophobic? Us?”. This incorrect assumption creates an environment which makes sensible debate almost impossible.
