A 58 year old British man has been convicted of selling drugs but given a suspended sentence because he is a stay-at-home father to his twenty-second child, by 11 women.

Should people in this situation be able to avoid custodial sentences on the pretext of raising a child? What is the implication of this case on wider community perceptions about justice and parental and personal responsibility?

Social commentator Mal Fletcher, chairman of 2020Plus, addresses this and other questions in this interview for BBC Radio. Mal is speaking with Mike Parr.

Fantastic and inspiring article Mal about the London bombings. I will be passing this on to others. May God continue to bless your unique and powerful ministry.

I get really inspired by the Daily Recharge.

A great article on 'Hybrid Stem Cell Research'! It is not only highly relevant to current research but also shows how just a little initial compromise will eventually cause an unstoppable downslide in ethical standards with irreversible outcomes.
