UK bishops to host pro-gay priest for talk at Catholic youth conference

When the former head of the Dominican order, who has called for more acceptance within the Catholic Church of homosexuality, was invited to deliver a keynote address to a Catholic conference in Ireland last year, it prompted calls from pro-family groups and individuals to cancel the engagement. Those calls are being repeated as Fr. Timothy Radcliffe will be the featured speaker at a Catholic conference for youth in March next year, reports LifeSiteNews.

The Flame2 Youth Conference 2015, to be held at Wembly Arena on March 7, 2015, is organized by the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation, which is affiliated with the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales. Organizers say the conference will have “bursts of input, interspersed with world class music and drama, in an atmosphere full of joy.” Other speakers include Filipino Cardinal Luis Tagle, archbishop of Manila; Cardinal Vincent Nichols, archbishop of Westminster; Baroness Sheila Hollins; and British worship leader Matt Redman.

The conference biography for Fr. Radcliffe says that youth wrote in their evaluations of the 2012 youth conference that he was the speaker with “the greatest impact.” He travels the world speaking and lecturing and is the author of many popular works on spirituality. According to the biography, he “brings humour and great joy, and he is able to connect with young people in a way that is warm, encouraging and challenging.”

Fr. Radcliffe, who taught scripture studies at Oxford University and served as Master of the Dominican Order from 1992 to 2001, is also known for bringing a decidedly heterodox approach to matters of human sexuality. He has celebrated the notorious “Soho Masses” for active and unrepentant homosexuals, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Westminster, until pressure was brought to bear to stop them.
