So they took on a fairly high-profile guy without the resources of, say, a FactNet, and without the vested interest of a Dennis Ehrlich in sticking around. Someone they could intimidate into silence, just to show a "win." Otherwise, why go after Henry? His invective was sometimes even offensive to me, but he was no real threat to the cult that I could see. I'm afraid they'll go after a real threat next, someone like Diane (note the lame DA'ing by Judy "A few bricks" Short). Diane has those eerie powers of actually being able to look up facts to refute cult claims. This frightens and confuses clams.
