Biography

English political activist. At the behest of Lady Warwick, who supported his Christian socialist views, he served as vicar of Thaxted in Essex from 1910 until his death in 1946. A colorful figure, he was dubbed The Red Vicar and stirred up great controversy when he hung three flags in the church: the Union Jack, the Sinn Fein banner and the Hammer and Sickle. In 1918 he formed The Catholic Crusade "to create the demand for the Catholic Faith." A charismatic figure, he wrote and argued for his causes. He died on July 2, 1942 and on his tombstone appear these words: "He loved justice and hated oppression."
