THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, 51 MILLION ABORTIONS SINCE ROE V. WADE; PRO-ABORTION CARDINAL; GAY MARRIAGE SPREADS...CHURCH SCANDALS
K of C Cardinal Sean O’Malley gave Pro-Abortion Ted Kennedy a hero’s funeral on 29/Aug/09 and supported his 6 Caritas Christi hospitals in abortion referral on 12/Mar/09. In Dec ’05, he let Catholic Charities award Boston Mayor Tom Menino, a Pro-Abortion Catholic who leads the Gay Pride Parade yearly. K of C City Clrs. Michael Flaherty & John Tobin also march. Fr. Walter Cuenin is a K of C homosexual hero. State Dep. Dick Guerriero failed to suspend Pro-Abortion politicians I named, but signed an open letter endorsing Mitt Romney (R), who introduced gay marriage, flipped on abortion! Ray Flynn, K of C, fmr. Vatican Ambassador, voted for Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton (Boston Herald 6/Feb/08). On 4/May/08, Supreme Advocate (lawyer) Paul Devin, who gave money to Pro-Abortion politicians Ted & Joe Kennedy (OpenSecrets.org), ruled as "unconstitutional" a MA State Convention resolution by GK Joe Craven to suspend Pro-Abortion/Pro-Gay politicians. Disgraced, Devin retired in Feb ’09.
The MA Legislature, in Constitutional Convention on 14/Jun/07, defeated the efforts of 170,000 signatories to put traditional marriage on the ballot in 2008. At least 16 K of C caused the defeat: Speaker Sal DiMasi, House Maj. Leader John Rogers, Reps Garret Bradley, Bob DeLeo, Stephen DiNatale, Chris Donelan, Chris Fallon (a Mason), Kevin Honan, Paul McMurtry, Charles Murphy, Bob Nyman, Angelo Puppolo, Bob Spellane; Senators Michael Knapik (R) (PGK), Tom McGee, Michael Morrissey (Mass.gov). These K of C Reps voted $750K for gay programs in public schools. Senators voted an increase to $850K on 22/May/08. In Jul ’08 they (except Puppolo) repealed a 1913 law, thus allowing same-sex couples from all 50 states to marry. By Jul ’09, 14 K of C pols had signed in support of an access to all persons “Bathroom Bill” H. 1728. Gay marriage spread to VT, NH, ME, CT, IA in 2 years, partly due to the inaction of MA SDs Vin Rumasuglia & Bill Donovan! Republican pols (R), others Dems.
Ten K of C italicized above have top Planned Parenthood ratings (PPLMvotes.org). PP are the biggest abortionists - 305,310 in ’07 (PlannedParenthood.org). Pat Korten, VP for Communications, said that Pro-Abortion K of C members are "irrelevant" (Boston Herald 11/Aug/2007). In Aug 2005, Past Supreme Knight Virgil Dechant told Ken Fisher, President of CRCOA, that Pro-Abortion politicians will “never” be expelled. Joe Mauro, Exec. VP Agencies and Marketing ($386,321/yr, retired 2001), said on tape c. 1991: These Pro-Lifers are “real fanatics” and “radicals”. Betraying the Church, Anderson fails to suspend/expel the Pro-Abortion/Pro-Homosexual members and bishops fail to excommunicate. Only 11% ($3.4 of $32.3 million) in K of C HQ Charitable Contributions went to Pro-Life, but $3.8m went to the K of C Museum (kofc.org/eb/en/convention_2009/resources/contributions.pdf)!
I was in the top third as a K of C insurance agent: Lancer E. Division Report, y-t-d June 1999. General Agent Rodney Shropshire, showing great hostility towards my Pro-Life work, reassigned me to a small poor territory. Months later, he terminated my contract as a “failure”. VP Agencies, Tom Smith ($379,680/yr), countersigned his lie. Letters to then Supreme Knight Virgil Dechant ($2,164,805 in 2000, on retirement) and SK Carl Anderson ($1,146,183/yr) are unanswered. Sup. Treas. Deacon Ken Ryan ($208,181/yr) wrote lies, then claimed his signed letter wasn’t his! SD Tom Ledbetter suspended my membership. My appeal was rejected as "late" by Sup. Adv. Paul Devin ($387,130/yr), and by Sup. Board of Directors at a show trial held without my knowledge. Both lied.
EWTN, March for Life, and Sisters of Life betray the unborn when they give prominence to K of C leadership who harbor Pro-Abortion politicians in exchange for tax exemption. To ensure no conflict of interest, insist your politicians treat K of C councils as tax-free and K of C Home Office as a taxable insurance company. Do not cancel your valuable K of C policies in protest. If you need more life insurance buy it elsewhere.
Dear Mr. Anderson: Your refusal to expel Pro-Abortion/Pro-Homosexual politicians and members, 51 million surgical abortions since Roe v. Wade, requires your resignation as Supreme Knight. A vow to protect unborn children must be a membership condition. With $14 billion in assets, the K of C - strong right arm of the Church - must forgive “Church Loans” of $124 million, lent at 5.5% interest, and help needy dioceses & Pro-Life groups.
