ANAHEIM, August 4, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Concerned Roman Catholics of America (CRCOA) condemn the Knights of Columbus for their continuing failure to expel pro-abortion and pro-homosexual politicians. The K of C will meet in Anaheim, California when the 130th Supreme Council Annual Meeting (Supreme Convention) gathers at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel from August 7-9, 2012. CRCOA will protest at the Convention, and invite other Pro-Life/Pro-Family individuals and groups to join them.
Ken Fisher, Founder and Chairman of CRCOA, said:
"With 54 million abortions since Roe v. Wade in 1973, the Knights of Columbus has failed the unborn children miserably. Founded by Venerable Fr. Michael McGivney as a Catholic fraternal organization, the K of C ought to be a major force in the pro-life, pro-family movement. Instead, by sheltering pro-abortion politicians in its ranks, it has indirectly joined 'the culture of death,' as the late Pope John Paul II called it.
"Nationwide, many Knight public figures have been crucial elements in the pro-abortion, anti-family movements.
"Every year, at state and national level, the K of C pass resolutions denouncing pro-abortion politicians. These resolutions are just hot air put on paper. We hear rhetorical speeches from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson telling us that the K of C will no longer tolerate pro-abortion politicians in their ranks, but have yet to see Anderson expel any pro-abortion or pro-homosexual politicians from the Order. The bishops, many of whom are K of C members, have not recently excommunicated a single pro-abortion or pro-homosexual politician.
"The K of C have long boasted that they are 'the strong right arm of the Catholic Church.' Yet in his twelve years as Supreme Knight, Anderson has failed unborn children and marriage repeatedly. He and the Supreme Board of Directors must resign now!"
Fisher will be a guest this coming Monday at 9:00 AM PST on the world wide Wiley Drake Internet TV and Radio show at: thewileydrakeshow.com. On the show he will be addressing this sad situation within the Knights of Columbus.
