Extreme Pro-Abortion Feminist Heather Mallick Scheduled to Speak at Catholic St. Mary's University
By Kathleen Gilbert
CALGARY, Alberta, October 2, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - St. Mary's University College in Calgary, a Catholic institution, has invited Heather Mallick, a virulently pro-abortion and anti-Catholic author and columnist to address students as part of their 2008-09 speaker series.
Ms. Mallick is scheduled to deliver her talk, "A Liberal Arts Education: Worth Its Weight in Gold" to St. Mary's students on January 22, 2009.
Mallick, a well-established feminist column writer, has an undisguised antipathy toward Catholic teaching and morals, particularly concerning abortion and sexuality.
In an article published last year on CBC News, Mallick railed against the Vatican's refusal to support abortion for African women, saying the Church has "no pity" for African women whom the Church thinks "don't matter as much as a clump of cells." Therefore, Mallick says, Catholics choosing to disobey the Church are "inevitable" and more rational than Church officials, whom she called "folks who don't get out much."
Mallick advocates an extremely liberal approach to sexuality. In another CBC column she celebrated abortion as the "Get out of Jail Free card" that allows men and women to engage in uninhibited sex:
"Birth control and abortion rights have been a sexual volcano for men, one of those volcanoes that never stops erupting. So much more, and better, sex has been had. Men have been having a giant fling for decades, and women, able to relax about the terror of an unwanted pregnancy, have had more and better sex too.

Some catholic are real nuts and dangerous nuts.
I know that personnally.
They are not all like Benoit XVI
Someone at this college needs to be fired.
Maybe Greta will be waiting for her.
Rush is right: they are ugly.

Not necessarily. It depends on what kind of point they want to make to their students.
Perhaps they also bring in drunken bums on occasion to also give a speech.
The message the students take away is ‘gosh, I don’t want to end up like that!’.
hmmm... how much does a Liberal Arts Education weigh?
I'd say, since it's an abstract concept with no mass, it would "weigh" nothing.
I think I'll have to agree with her on this one.
Could participants come dressed as Sarah Palin? /heavy sarc
Legit taxpayer question — why hasn’t the CBC fired her bony butt yet?
Isn’t there a Bishop with the authority (and courage) to prevent this?
More sex! Better sex!( Who was brave enough to have sex with HER, but that’s another story;) Slutty women, hump ‘em and dump ‘em men, children murdered by the slut’s abusive “boyfriend”, family breakdown, social anarchy, AIDS, genital herpes (painful and permanent), cervical cancer from HPV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, pelvic inflammatory disease, all “benefits” of the sexual revolution
Why is this disgusting self-excommunicated slut even allowed to set foot on Catholic property?
There was a Cajun Pope?
I suspect these speakers get money for these speeches. So. . .the college is financially supporting a woman who supposedly standing for everything they are against.
Seems idiotic to me. Idiotic enough for a firing.

This archdiocese has an excellent and courageous bishop, Bishop Henry. Maybe he can apply some pressure.
