Concerned Roman Catholics Blast the K of C Double-Standard on Abortion
August 18, 2009
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Concerned Roman Catholics of America (CRCOA) monitored the proceedings at the Knights of Columbus Supreme Convention, held this year in Phoenix, Arizona, from Aug. 4-6. The K of C, the world's largest Catholic fraternal group, are notorious for their continuing failure to expel pro-abortion and pro-homosexual politicians.
CRCOA President Ken Fisher stated: "Over three days of wining and dining by Knights, cardinals, bishops and guests, 10,000 of our pre-born brothers and sisters were killed by abortion in the USA and Canada. We heard the usual empty rhetoric from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and saw more resolutions passed for show. If the K of C ever enforces these resolutions, we will be glad to report it. In 2008, only 11% ($3.4 of $32.3 million) given by Home Office to charity went to pro-life. By contrast, $3.8 million went to the K of C museum!
"Thirty six years and fifty one million abortions since Roe v. Wade, the K of C has not expelled the pro- abortion and pro-homosexual politicians, and the bishops - many of whom are K of C members - have not excommunicated them. Indeed, K of C Cardinal Sean O'Malley supported his 6 Caritas Christi hospitals in abortion referral on March 12, 2009."
"Opinion polls published by the Knights of Columbus and others, tell us that the nation is becoming more pro-life. The only true opinion polls are elections, which return pro-abortion politicians time and time again. In August 2009, Catholic pro-abortion politicians in Congress outnumber the pro-life by 101 to 48 - a ratio of 2 to 1 - the same as in the last Congress!"
"Anderson has led the K of C for the last nine years, following in the footsteps of Virgil Dechant who told me in 2005 that pro-abortion politicians will 'never' be expelled! Anderson has failed, so he must go', concluded Fisher.
