September 23, 2016
A Canadian archbishop has agreed to accept an award from the dissident Catholic group "FutureChurch."
Archbishop Paul-André Durocher of Gatineau, Quebec, will be honored by FutureChurch for the "visionary proposal" that he made the October 2015 meeting of the Synod of Bishops, calling for a discusion of female deacons and for an expanded role of women as preachers. The award will be presented at an event featuring a keynote speech by Father Charles Curran, whose dissent from Church teaching led to a 1986 Vatican decision that he could no longer teach as a Catholic theologian.

This bishop should be immediately recalled to Rome to explain himself and the obvious scandal he is creating.
