Catholic University president becomes key leader for Catholic orthodoxy

Catholic World News - February 29, 2012

The National Catholic Register profiles John Garvey, the president of Catholic University, who has emerged as a leading spokesman for Catholic institutions in the battle against the Obama contraceptive mandate.

Since becoming the president of Catholic University, Garvey has taken a strong stand in support of orthodoxy. He also made waves with his decision to return to single-sex dormitories.

    I was not optimistic about John Garvey's appointment at CUA, but he has been consistently and proactively orthodox. Deo gratis.

    John Garvey and orthodoxy? Really? How short the memory is...remember his time at BC where he critized a faculty member for his same sex statements or his allowing pro-abortion speakers to speak at the law school? Or is Garvey's orthodoxy only limited to HHS?
