Catholic Knights of Columbus
crusading for marriage measure

Minneapolis StarTribune, by BAIRD HELGESON

Original Article

Posted By:voxpopuli, 10/14/2012 11:27:41 PM

In Minnesota, the Knights of Columbus are best known for hosting charitable free-throw contests, collecting pennies to support seminarians and conducting Tootsie Roll drives to aid people with disabilities. (snip) Several longtime Catholics who oppose the marriage amendment said they were surprised and troubled by the Knights' involvement in the marriage issue. They said they only knew the group for its charity work, locally and abroad. Now they are crushed to learn..

Comments:
who else but the RedStar expressing SURPRISE that CATHOLICS - not their "katholik" friends - are supporting an anti-homosexual agenda on the ballot..
note the statements from the "troubled" anti-Americans who call themselves "catholics"..

My favorite part was the "long time Catholics". Anyone who is a long time Catholic who doesn't know that the K of C stands with and defends the teachings of the Church isn't a long time Catholic who knows their faith.

Golly gee. What a suprise to the egghead media yahoos of Minneapolis? A group of Catholic men are supporting the Biblically-supported teachings of the Church.

I guess all they thought the Knights did was run a bar and some fish frys.

And people actually pay to read this junk writing . . . always heard this was a dreadful paper (McClatchy owned it and even they felt it was worthless).

My husband and I both work in the Catholic Church as a Deacon and Liturgy Coordinator, respectively. We know of no practicing Catholics who favor same-sex marriage. Get ready for the new evangelization -- Catholics empowered to stand up for their religious principles, regardless the cost.

It can't be much longer until the all ''cafeteria katholics'' in this country finally break off and start their own church.

All the devout Roman Catholics will continue to believe in solid basic Christian beliefs (especially in things like abortion being murder, and marriage being an instutuion of one man and one woman).

I'm not Catholic, but every KC I have ever known has been a devout, faithful Christian man that I would proudly stand next to if fighting all the secularists and lie-beral ''Christians'' that want to destroy the basic tenants of Christianity in the name of forming the new ''First Church of What's Happening Now -- If It Feels Good, Do It -- Don't Let That Pesky Bible, or 2000+ Years of Belief, Get In the Way of Thinking with Your Loins -- Assembly!!!''

Liberals go ballistic whenever anyone disagrees with them. That's especially true if their opponents are Christian. They seem to think that religious people have no right to speak out on public policy, and no voice in a democracy. They're fascists at heart. Read the article -- and the comments -- and you'll see how liberals long for the day when they can use the full force of government power to silence those who oppose them.

I thought I'd remark on this; but preceding posters pretty well covered anything I would have said.

#5 must live in a somewhat atypical parish, though. A large number of Catholics let themselves be secularized in the post-1960s time, and in some regions a majority oppose their Church's unchanging teachings on marriage and contraception.

And in some dioceses a near-majority of priests even argue against those teachings (though it seems none of those is under 35).

Dittos to all other posters, and fie on this reporter Baird Helgeson for being so ignorant.

PS: The Knights of Columbus were very involved here in Calfornia in 2008, when we fought back the same-sex marriage crowd, and passed Proposition 8, an ammendment to our State Constitution - stating that marriage is between one man and one woman. God bless them!!!

I recently became a 3rd degree knight. I was astonished and impressed at the level of comitment it requires to the Churchs teachings and to the Pope and bishops.

When i was a kid we had a K of C hall in town, and it was really a booze hall. Staffed and frequented by alchies who didnt go to Mass, it seemed to me.

Todays org is not your fathers K of C. You cant even join without being a practicing Catholic. Ive been wondering how long the MM was going to let us fly under the radar. I guess now we know: no longer.

Dear posters: it is a conservative surge that has been beating back liberalism and the Obama agenda for the past two years.

Don't. Just Don't. Think you're going to ride the tea party tsunami to electoral victory while simultaneously marginalizing serious conservatives.

Moderates have won nothing. Repeat nothing. Ever.

I was recently in Maine where I saw a bumper sticker that said, "Catholics for Marriage Equality." I could not imagine that a Catholic would actually drive around with that nonsense on their car.

Since Roe v Wade there is reported to have been 54,000,000 (million that is) abortions in America. That is like vaporizing California and half of New York...scary thoughts for a civilize nation! 54 million, how can this be?

The poster above really thinks that in a scant 2 weeks from the election the conservative base is going to get energized & show up to vote for a moderate GOP candidate (who raised $$ for Planned Prnthd when a Gov) because the KofC started voicing an abortion litmus test for him?

Get serious! All they are going to do in 2 weeks is give the Leftist Media something they can desperately jump on & energize THEIR base & turn off the Swing voters who were willing to switch from Obama to Romney.

I agree we need a more conservative candidate who is pro-life! The election wouldn't even be close if we had one, imho. But they should have done this when we were picking/vetting our nominee, not now. It's too late now! They aren't going to suddenly make a hard line pro-choicer out of Romney. They should have pushed for one instead of Romney!

You can't energize the conservative base with an already chosen & on the ballot moderate!

Liberal Catholics like to think of themselves as more enlightened than evangelical Protestants (or fundies, as the and other liberals call them). But the two groups have more in common than not on issues such as abortion, same sex marriage and women in the clergy. And all of these positions are Biblically-based.

Minnesota billionaire Glen Taylor has made a formal offer to acquire the Star Tribune, a purchase that would add the state’s largest media company to his diverse business empire. Taylor said in an interview Tuesday that he has made a cash offer as an individual without any other investors. He declined to say how much he would pay, but he emphasized that the Star Tribune is the only media company he is pursuing. “I’m interested in this one because it’s a Minnesota paper,” Taylor said.

A young woman sobs at the door of an apartment in Fridley. She claims to be the daughter of 44-year-old Uriel Ortiz, who was stabbed to death Thursday while at a floral nursery in the east metro. "He was a good man," she said. 59-year-old Gregorio Ramirez is charged with stabbing and killing Ortiz. Rameriz was his co-worker at Bailey Nurseries in Newport. Police say, Thursday afternoon they got a call about a medical emergency at the nursery. When they got there Ortiz was already dead. An investigation began and it determined Ramirez was the only person with Ortiz at the time of the stabbing.

Dawn Marie Pfister was a 34-year-old “free spirit” and the mother of two young children from Elkhorn, Wis. Her boyfriend Matthew Vincent Serbus once lived in St. Paul and had a long criminal record for theft, robbery and drugs. Now, Pfister’s family and friends are searching for answers about how and why the couple died of gunshot wounds after leading police on a high-speed chase on Hwy. 212 from Chaska to Eden Prairie on Friday morning. The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the two Saturday. Officials have not released many details about the incident or explained what prompted police to open fire.

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

Thirteen people were injured, six critically, early Wednesday moirning after an explosion caused a major fire at a grocery store and apartment building on Cedar Ave. in south Minneapolis. No cause has been identified as of yet, said Greg Nelson, supervisor of the Minneapolis Emergency Communications Center, but the building that housed the West Bank Grocery and a mosque is likely a total loss. A police squad car reported the fire at around 8:16 a.m. after seeing the explosion and seeing debris on the street, he said. Flames were shooting 20 feet from the building, officials said. The second and third floor later collapsed. The injured were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and Univesity Hospital.

Federal authorities have obtained confidential documents that shed new light on JPMorgan Chase´s decision to hire the children of China´s ruling elite, securing emails that show how the bank linked one prominent hire to "existing and potential business opportunities" from a Chinese government-run company. The documents, which also include spreadsheets that list the bank´s "track record" for converting hires into business deals, offer the most detailed account yet of JPMorgan´s "Sons and Daughters" hiring program, which has been at the center of a federal bribery investigation for months.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
