Your oxymoron for the day - "Knights for Obama"

It seems there is a group out there, consisting of some (very few, I pray) Knights of Columbus who support Obama. They are "resisting church pressure to make abortion the primary issue that should drive Catholics' votes...." according to an article on Beliefnet.

For those who may be unaware, the Knights of Columbus are a Catholic men's pro-life group.

They need our prayers.

I am a First Degree Knight and I couldn't imagine supporting Obama. We have to live with him for the next 4 years I hope he doesn't do too much damage.

Oh my! I remember during the Bush v. Kerry election, our local bishop coming to the Knights to "encourage" them to vote for the "labor-friendly" candidate. I think the bishop was taken aback when all the Knights went crazy and asked him if he was seriously trying to persuade them to vote for a pro-abortion candidate. But that is the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for ya. (Sigh)

I am enjoying reading through your blog Beth. :)
