Shock: Nominee to Obama’s Council on Faith-Based Partnerships is Anti-Catholic, Leftwing Zealot

Of course, of course. Why wouldn’t he be?

President Barack Obama’s controversial appointee to the White House faith-based advisory council — a professed gay Christian who has called the pope a “discredited leader” — continues to rile conservatives. 

Knox comes to the administration from the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual advocacy group. His recent comments to a San Francisco-based gay newspaper have prompted much of the concern. 

Last month, the Bay Area Reporter quoted Knox as criticizing the Knights of Columbus for supporting California’s Proposition 8, a voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Knox told the newspaper that the Knights of Columbus “followed discredited leaders,” including Roman Catholic bishops and Pope Benedict XVI…

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a recent Catholic convert, said the Knox appointment is part of Obama’s “intensely secular” and “anti-religious” agenda. 

“Why would you put an anti-religious, left-wing zealot on a faith-based council?” Gingrich asked on Fox News last week. “It’s a perfect pattern for this administration.”
