Knights of Columbus Dismisses “Grand Knight” for Being “Inappropriate”
Edit: read closely. He wasn’t fired because he led a notorious life, but because he was open about it. Had he kept his degeneracy private, he would have been OK! Even so, they’re going to have a hard time making this stuck. We imagine that someone soon will cave. Perhaps the Porno-Kardinal of Vienna will intervene to mediate? If they’re not going to dump Masonic members for belonging to thenLodge, there’s probabaly not much hope for them here, either.
MANCHESTER, N.H. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A New Hampshire Knights of Columbus chapter is getting slammed for upholding Church teaching that homosexual acts can never be approved.
Andrew Keyes, former Grand Knight of Saint Anselm College Council #4875, recently resigned after Andrew Cilento, a fellow Knight, complained that Keyes brought his boyfriend to a Knights formal on March 16. The complaint was leveled against the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus in New Haven, Connecticut, and Fr. Benedict Guevin, OSB, the chapter's chaplain.
In a statement to the Hilltopper, an unofficial school newspaper, Cilento defended his complaint saying, "It was inappropriate for Mr. Keyes to hold a leadership position for a Catholic organization while being in a relationship that is contrary to the teachings of Holy Mother Church."
