Catholics will tell Knights: Live up to Catholic and K of C ideals
We all know that he would not. So why do today's Knights of Columbus harbor some pro-aborts?
Yes, a number of K of C councils around the USA have notorious pro-abortion politicians as members, and their state officials and the Supreme headquarters refuse to kick them out.
Naturally, this casts a pall over the hundreds of thousands of good Knights of Columbus and over all the prayers they offer, donations they make and charitable service they provide.
So if you are going to be in Nashville next Tuesday-Thursday, August 7-9 , please join with our Southern California-based Concerned Roman Catholics of America in picketing the Knights' 2007 international convention. Or tell your friends and relatives in Nashville to help out.
The Christian Newswire today (August 2) ran a press release from CRCOA that announces the picketing. Our friend Kenneth M. Fisher, founder and chairman of CRCOA, said:
"We call upon the Knights, especially Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, to practice the Catholic principles they brag about upholding and kick out all the pro-'gay,' pro-abortion politicians they've welcomed into their ranks.
"It's long past time for the Knights to end the scandal of embracing pro-homosexual, pro- abortion politicians who trample on the Catholic moral teachings the organization says it stands for.
"Especially, the Knights should give the boot to the 16 Massachusetts state lawmakers--all Knights in good standing--whose votes recently killed a ballot measure that would've enshrined man-woman marriage in the law and banned homosexual so- called 'marriage.' These politicians overrode 170,000 citizens who petitioned to put traditional marriage on the ballot. What's more, seven of these 'Knights' have 'pro-choice' ratings from Planned Parenthood, which runs America's biggest chain of abortion centers."
"CRCOA defends orthodox Catholic teachings and works to expose and end false teachings, corruption and scandals. That's why we ask the Knights to clean house and restore their good name. How can they call themselves 'the strong right arm of the Church' when they harbor pro-homosexual, pro-abortion politicians--enemies of the Church--as members?...Anderson has been in charge for more than six years now. He should do his duty before God and expel the pro-'gay,' pro-abortion politicians--or head for the door himself."
This year, the Knights will meet at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville. Ken said CRCOA will picket from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on August 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on August 8, and from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on August 9.
