Here’s another instance of that familiar pattern where pride, prestige and riches have caused Catholics to fall away. We’re talking about the executives that run the head office of the Knights of Columbus, not the rank and file, most of whom are solid Catholic heroes.
Did you know that the Supreme Knight in the US earns $1.2 million in compensation? Did you know that his predecessor was given a retirement “golden parachute” of $2 million? Other current executives earn hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
But I digress. Anybody is allowed to run a legitimate business. The real problem is that as they rake in these big bucks, these professional Catholics at the top of the Knights are busy publicly defending dissenters and reprimanding faithful Knights. Check out the video below.
I think it’s time for the rank and file to start a revolution.
I also think we need to do some digging into the Canadian branch to see what’s going on up here.
