The Major Issues and Theology Foundation (MIAT) was established in 2001 to promote productive public discussion within the Australian community on major issues of moral, ethical, theological and social significance in a way that will initiate appropriate action. The MIAT believe that theology can make a valuable contribution to the handling of issues in our society. It is committed to considering all points of view and wishes to enhance its outlook by examining various theologies and philosophies. Nevertheless the MIAT accepts the Judeo-Christian theology as the soil from which much Western thought has sprung and from which the moral and ethical values of our society have evolved.
The MIAT therefore retains this theology as a basis for its deliberations. However within this basic framework it does not have a specific theological orientation nor any particular political position.
- To encourage free, open and constructive discussion on major issues confronting society.
