Catholic Insight




Challenges

2007—A gay activist in Edmonton filed a human rights complaint against this socially conservative Roman Catholic journal.

Objection—The activist alleged that Catholic Insight promoted hatred against gays and lesbians by opposing—on theological grounds—homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

Update—In 2008, Canadian Human Rights Commission ruled that “the material is not likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt based on sexual orientation.” The activist appealed this ruling to the Federal Court of Canada.
