Response to The Australian 07/09/2016
Thursday 08 September 2016
As Bishop of Parramatta, I take serious exception to the inaccurate and misleading headline and opening paragraph in The Australian – ‘Catholic bishop calls on church to accept homosexuality’ (07/09/2016 written by Greg brown).
It appears my lecture has been completely misrepresented. The views and opinions of myself to clarify the lecture were not sought, nor was there any attempt at clarification.
It is disappointing that despite requests to have the inaccurate story amended, no changes have been made by the journalist or the publication.
