Yes he does. He's a courageous man.
Loyalist, do you know much about Bishop Henry?
Fred Henry is not known for his reticence.
He has already banned one former Prime Minister (Joe Clark, who is a Calgary native) from speaking in schools or receiving a Catholic burial in his diocese. He's backed priests who have refused to witness marriages of couples who have no intention of having children or otherwise living the faith (including one woman who was a Planned Parenthood employee).
He's also gone head-to-head with the Alberta government on economic and social policy.
He was auxiliary in London, Ont. under the hyper-liberal John Sherlock and rector of St. Peter's Seminary in the mid-80's, and bishop of Thunder Bay, Ont. before heading to Calgary.
When he was in Thunder Bay, he raised a public furore when nurses at the local public hospital were forced to participate in abortions and the hospital backed down.
Bishop Henry might well be Cardinal Henry in three years time when Ambrozic retires in Toronto.
