PRIEST BANNED FROM SPEAKING AT CATHOLIC CONFERENCE BECAUSE HE SUPPORTS SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

PRIEST BANNED FROM SPEAKING AT CATHOLIC CONFERENCE BECAUSE HE SUPPORTS SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
Father Frank Brennan, a well-known Australian Jesuit priest and writer, was invited to speak at the Catholic Care Tasmania conference in February.
However, the appearance was blocked by the Archbishop of Hobart, Julian Porteous, who took exception to Brennan’s support for equal marriage.
During Australia’s public vote on equal marriage in 2017, Brennan had urged Catholics to vote for equal marriage “for the common good” – in a break from the country’s Archbishops, who orchestrated an anti-gay marriage campaign and distributed ‘No’ leaflets in churches.

Archbishop Porteous, a strong opponent of LGBT equality, confirmed the decision to ban Brennan from speaking.
His spokesperson said: “Archbishop Porteous addressed the conference on the issue of marriage. His Grace felt it was inappropriate for Father Brennan to speak at the conference, due to his public position regarding same-sex marriage.”
LGBT campaigners branded the Archbishop a hypocrite for clamping down on pro-gay voices while regularly complaining about his own free speech being ‘violated’.
