London Catholic Foundation to host Anti-Catholic Speaker

Why has a Catholic charitable foundation invited an anti-Catholic bigot to speak at a fundraising dinner? The group is the Monsignor Feeney Foundation for Catholic Education in the Diocese of London. The anti-Catholic bigot is Stephen Lewis, former leader of the Ontario Socialist Party, also known as the NDP (New Democratic Party) and Canadian Ambassador to that other Internationalist Organization, the United Nations. Lewis also heads a foundation, humbly named after himself to promote condom use in Africa. Lewis once accused the Pope of "complete indifference to the vulnerability of women, who are so hugely and disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS." For more of Lewis' quotations about the Pope, Ian Hunter has summarized them on Catholic Insight. Herman Gooder also writes frankly about the matter in today's London Free Press. The issue was also brought to the news by the ubiquitous
