    This is shameful. The Knights should be better than this. The Jesus Christ of the New Testament would not sanction this but rather be there to support those who are marginalized and discriminated against.

    I agree that this is shameful but also think they too, along with the Catholic Church, should lose their tax exempt status. They have the right to support whatever they choose, I also have the right to choose and make my own prayerful decisions on matters of morals. Let’s make this a fair game. Make them choose about their moral decisions by giving them a choice of TAX EXEMPT STATUS OR NOT!

    Why should the government tax anyone that you don’t agree with? It is a shame in this that people cannot disagree on an issue an keep it civil. I for one, don’t think anyone wants to involve themselves in other people’s business or who visits who in hospitals (liberty) however I also believe I have the right to teach my children what the “ideal” relationship is.

    I could care less if the Church was tax exempt or not. I would love to see that battle fought.
