Dale Price is righteously angry and can you blame him?
Terry McAuliffe, former DNC Chair and unapologetic defender of partial birth abortion, is about to be honored for his selfless devotion to and efforts on behalf of the Catholic Faith by being admitted to the Knights of Malta.
Once again, those laboring in the trenches to uphold the Gospel are about to take a shiv between the shoulderblades. Once again, the unfaithful get front row seats while the laborers in the vineyard are told to shut up. This is of a piece with the detonation over the Buffalo Deacon’s homily (poor, poor “Brian,” whose remarkably base political whoredom is noted here) and the Archbishop of Washington’s studied refusal to directly address life issues with any Catholics in public life. Yes, the Church’s leaders preach one thing while coddling the opponents within her ranks.
Meanwhile, isn’t Ted Kennedy still a Knight of Columbus? Rupert Murdoch, founder of News Corp and Fox Broadcasting, received a papal knighthood in the Order of St. Gregory.
If you know anyone who is a Knight of Malta (or if you are one yourself), maybe you could suggest to him that perhaps Terry McAuliffe would not be an appropriate candidate for membership regardless of his political connections or potential contributions to the Knights’ charitable causes. It would all be blood money in any case.
