Australian Catholic paper declines ads for McAleese speaking appearance
Catholic World News - August 29, 2014
An Australian Catholic newspaper refused to carry advertisements for a speaking appearance by former Irish President Mary McAleese, citing her dissent from Church teaching on homosexuality and women's ordination.
Peter Rosengren, the editor of the Catholic Weekly, said that he declined the advertisements because of McAleese's public statements in opposition to Church teaching. The Irish politician is appearing at an event hosted by a Catholic group, Catalyst for Renewal.
