CATHOLIC MAGAZINE UNDER INVESTIGATION BY CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION OVER COMPLAINT FROM HOMOSEXUAL


A Catholic Magazine, called Catholic Insight, has come under attack for its opinions on homosexuality by the Canadian Human Rights Commissions (HRC). This follows on the heels of another HRC complaint against Maclean's magazine and Mark Steyn for "Islamophopic" statements. In addition, a recent Alberta HRC judgment ordered a news outlet not to publish comments by a Christian pastor regarding homosexuality.

From Hilary White via
LIFESITE : "Toronto's Catholic Insight magazine has reported they stand accused in an HRC complaint of "targeting homosexuals".

"Catholic Insight is a Catholic political and cultural general interest magazine that regularly and accurately expounds orthodox Catholic teaching, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, on homosexuality as well as harmful consequences to individual persons and society of the active homosexual "lifestyle".

"The magazine now reveals that Rob Wells, a homosexual activist associated with the Pride Centre of Edmonton, in February this year 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".

Catholic Insight (CI), however, bases its editorial policy very strictly on Catholic Church teaching which is at pains to separate what it says is the deviant behaviour and disordered inclination of homosexuality from the person.

Wells' complaint cites articles from Catholic Insight dating back to 1994 but Catholic Insight counters that the citations are "without context" and do not give an accurate picture of what the magazine has actually published. "In fact," the magazine said in an editorial, "most of them are even out of context from the sentences from which they were taken."
