A group called the Concerned Roman Catholics of America has sent an open letter to the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus blasting the group for being too lax with gay-supportive members.
In anticipation of K of C's August convention in Washington, D.C., supreme knight Carl Anderson briefed members on the issues and tone that will make up the gathering. The CRCA took umbrage that no mention of abortion or same-sex marriage was in Anderson's briefing. The letter, not signed but including a contact at CRCA, accuses Anderson of not booting gay-supportive politicians who are K of C members.
"As supreme knight since 2000, Carl Anderson has failed to expel or suspend pro-abortion and pro-homosexual politicians, despite pleas from rank-and-file Knights.... For all their good works, the Knights' national leadership stubbornly harbors enemies of unborn babies and man-woman marriage."
The K of C donated over a million dollars toward Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California.
