Catholic Insight Magazine

Posted by Censor Librorum on Feb 9, 2008 | Categories: Lesbians & Gays

Catholic Insight, an orthodox apologist magazine, is being investigated by the Canadian Human Rights Commission for offensive speech.

Rob Wells, a gay activist associated with the Pride Centre of Edmonton,  filed a nine-point complaint against Catholic Insight. Wells alleges that the magazine made “negative generalizations” about homosexuals; portrayed them as preying upon children, as dangerous and “devoid of any redeeming qualities and…innately evil”.inquisition-11.jpg

Father Alphonse de Valk, the founder and editor, disagrees with the accusations.   “Wells took three pages of quotes out of context,” he told Zenit, the Vatican news agency. The Basilian priest added that Catholic Insight “bases itself on the Church’s teaching and applies it to various circumstances in our time. ” He went on to say some of the statements that allegedly promoted hatred and contempt against homosexuals were taken from recent Vatican prouncements. (!!)

I think Fr. de Valk should team  up with Fr. Bryce Sibley,  the former blogger on A Saintly Salmagundi.   Fr. Sibley stopped by for a pastoral visit to CCL in April 2004 to tell  us we were all going to hell. I guess his heavenly patron, Mary, Exterminatrix of Heresies, told it him it would the be right thing to do.
