Re: Knights Ii

NPR underlined the conservatism of the Knights of Columbus again today. Anchor Renee Montagne began: “The president pushed a conservative social agenda and highlighted his opposition to abortion rights and gay marriage.” White House reporter Don Gonyea explained: “The Knights of Columbus describes itself as a nonpartisan service organization, and its spokesman says it invited Mr. Bush, a Methodist, to speak as the President and not as a candidate, but it was hard to tell that yesterday.” (Chant of “four more years” from the speech audience follows.)

Tom Johnson, MRC’s man on NPR, noted that this morning, Don Gonyea concluded: “Despite the ovations the Knights of Columbus convention gave the president…the group is not representative of American Catholics as a whole, but is much more conservative.”
