Then KofC is a bunch of little old Italian-American men who hunch over the wheels of their Cadillacs and Lincolns as they drive down the street at 10 mph. You expect progress from them?

Wow, they couldn't find anything better to spend nearly $16 MILLION on? Maybe helping the poor or the homeless or abused women?

Nope, gotta spend it tyring to deny equal rights to people they don't even know and will likely never meet.

"The funds that the Knights of Columbus has chosen to divert into attacks on the freedom to marry could have purchased 105,333 wheelchairs for its Global Wheelchair Mission, 972,307 coats for its Coats for Kids program, or 5,873,606 meals through its Food for Families program."

I knew an Italian Catholic Knights of Columbus man who told me one time that he was the head of a committee that was going to dedicate a bench in the local park in honor of the homeless and jobless veterans. I asked him how much it cost for the concrete pad, the laying of the pad, and the purchase of the bench. He told me he wasn't allowed to talk about the cost, because it was for charity,but it was substantial. I asked him, "So its' for homeless and jobless vets. What is it, a place for them to sleep at night?" He didn't get the sarcasm. He just stared at me with a blank look.

I was born and raised Protestant and still attend a Protestant church each Sunday. But I have occasionally attended a Catholic church every few years, as I have had many friends over the years who are Catholic, and one part of my small family is Catholic.

I have always been struck by the fact that every Roman Catholic church I have ever been in is decorated with obviously very expensive ornate and costly things.

While every Protestant church I have ever atteneded or visisted, be it Lutheran, UCC, Methodist, Baptist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, and other, has always been decorated very modestly, or sometimes not at all. What would Jesus say ?
