Denver pub says Theology on Tap series 'too controversial'

Catholic World News - February 16, 2012

A Denver pub has discontinued a “Theology on Tap” series, saying that a recent talk on religious freedom by Bishop James Conley roused undue controversy among patrons.

Stoney’s Bar and Grill hosted a lecture by Bishop Conley on January 26, which was attended by hundreds of young people. After the event, the proprietor informed the archdiocese that he would not host such events in the future because of disputes that arose among patrons and members of the staff.

The owner of Stoney’s left open the possibility that the series could resume there, however. He told Catholic News Agency that there has been a “misunderstanding” about scheduling future events, and “we hope to be able to work with the group again in the future.”
