Church Cancels Speech by Sister Helen Prejean Over Criticism of Bush
In Minnesota, the Catholic Church of Duluth has uninvited the well-known nun, Helen Prejean, from speaking at an upcoming fundraising dinner. Sister Prejean is the author of the book Dead Man Walking. The church said it canceled her speech after her name appeared in ad in the New York Times calling for the removal of President Bush from office.

August 11: Sister Helen asks that her name be withdrawn from the ad. (The final version of the ad contained pro-abortion language that she could not endorse.)

Think the diocese has ever cancelled a talk by someone who’s made pro-Bush or pro-war statements?
