Controversy over Homosexuality Lecture

After a sensational and biased front page report was carried in the weekend edition of the Limerick Leader on 17th March 2007 regarding the scheduled lecture by Rev. Stewart on Homosexuality, the Limerick Youth Service Center withdrew permission to use its premesis for this event.

The Limerick Leader ran a front page story with the headline - Fury Over Gay Hate Preacher - in which it sought to portray the Christian position on homosexuality as hateful, cruel and contributing to suicide amongst homosexuals. The Rainbow Support Service (a gay and lesbian support group) called for the lecture to be boycotted or cancelled.
