Case Dismissed!!

The Canadian Human Rights Commission has dismissed the complaint against Catholic Insight! The magazine was being investigated because of a complaint alleging that the magazine's articles opposing homosexual activity and 'gay marriage' promoted "extreme hatred and contempt" against persons with same-sex attractions. It is possible the complainant may appeal the CHRC's decision within the next 30 days.

Meanwhile, the magazine is still liable for $20,000 in legal expenses incurred in defending themselves. To donate to their defence fund, please click here. Also, do read this letter written by Fr. Alphonse de Valk, founder and editor of Catholic Insight, on the importance of continuing to seek reform of "the Human Rights Act, related provincial legislation, and the Commissions themselves".
