The Archdiocese of Montreal is currently advertising a fundraiser for a Jesuit think-tank that features a keynote address by one of Canada’s leading advocates for dissent against Church teaching. The ad is for a benefit evening on Monday, May 30th to support the work of the Jesuit’s ‘Centre justice et foi’ (Justice and Faith Centre), which distinguished itself in May 2010 by denouncing Cardinal Marc Ouellet after he proclaimed the Church’s respect for the life of the unborn even when they are conceived in rape. The event, which is meant to honour the Centre’s late founding director Fr. Julien Harvey, will feature a keynote address by Gregory Baum, who’s infamous for his long opposition to the Catholic Church on issues such as contraception, hOmosexuality and priestly celibacy. Baum, a former priest who married a divorced former nun without having sought laicization, is particularly notorious for helping rally opposition to Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae, which reiterated the Church’s condemnation of contraception. But since then, he was a prominent activist for same-s@x “marriage,” and was co-founder of the liberal Catholic New Times, which sought to undermine Catholic teaching from its inception in 1976.
