Bishops Unite Against Casinos
As reported by the Calgary Sun: ".Early next month, Bishop Fred Henry, the always forthright leader of Calgary's Catholics, will meet this city's Catholic school board and there will be little real wiggle room for the trustees. Early next month, the bishop will once again inform the board it must stop fundraising through casinos and bingos because the practice is 'morally problematic.' "The bishop is willing to discuss how long it will take for local Catholic schools to find other ways to raise money, but that is as far as he will go. But they must get out of gambling, something they have so far refused to do, an action Bishop Fred considers 'somewhat defiant.' ".Bishop Fred is prepared to discuss how to set up a task force to find other ways of raising money."
