Re: What are the Knights of Columbus?
While The Knights Of Columbus was partly promoted as a Catholic alternative to the Masons (Cathics were forbidden to join the Masons by the Church), and they have degrees (4 of them) and secret initiation rituals (one for each degree... And pretty much any Catholic man can rise to 4th Degree), there really isn't a comparison between the organizations.

All KofC functions are held in public except the initiations and financial discussions of each council. This is very different from Masons where much is done covertly.

The closest Catholic organization to Masons would be Opus Dei. Knights of Columbus are more like Boy Scouts compared to those two organizations!

Check out [link to www.kofc.org] for info from the source.

Lmao this video is piss poor anti-koc propaganda. There is much that can be said against the knights (mostly angry old men who want to do something - anything - to get away from their psycho wives), but to start labeling their sign or whatever as "fascist" like "the senate" is beyond insane. That video guy needs meds!

Well then they couldn't have anything to do with the masonic lodge. The masons and catholics have been at war ever since King Phillip IV killed several Knights Templars, who were the militant branch of the Catholic Church at that time (circa 1307).

Or at least they were at war, the Bavarian Illuminati may have managed to bridge the differences since Adam Weishaupt was a Jesuit priest. Maybe the Jesuits and Masons are all part of the same group now?

Click on the link to wikipedia, look at their emblem on that page. at the centre of the emblem you will see the fasces, which derives from ancient rome and the patricians, you would need to have a nominal grasp of roman civilisation/roman law etc but it represents the symbol of fascism construed to modern times. that is a fact and you can check if you would like on google. try to articulate an argument in a coherent sentence and check facts before making false accusations and thus making yourself look like a fool, or 'looney'.

Okay, fine... The video is 100% accurate and most of the US government is Roman Catholic, in the Knights and under Vatican control. Clearly I was mistaken thinking this predominately Protestant country had mostly people who are inelligible to become knights of Columbus. Obviously an outside source on YT is a better source for info than the organization's website. Just like the looney left trashing Tea Party and GLP people as racists and murderous psychos are far wiser than Tea Partyers and GLPers on their own friken intentions!

Re: What are the Knights of Columbus?
For all you ignorant people:


Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action.

Last year alone, in addition to raising and donating more than $158 million to charitable needs and projects, Knights volunteered more than 70 million hours of their time to charitable causes. We undertake these acts of charity because we see those in need through the eyes of faith. Moreover, in the Knights of Columbus, we approach these acts of charity together. Pope Benedict XVI calls this the “practice of love...as a community.”

Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. From international charitable partnerships with Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity to our own Food for Families and Coats for Kids projects and other purely local charities, the opportunity to work together with fellow Knights and their families is virtually endless.

If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of 1.8 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us.

The Knights’ annual Survey of Fraternal Activity for the year ending Dec. 31, 2011, indicated that, despite a soft economy, total charitable contributions reached $154,651,852 – exceeding the previous year’s total by more than $3.4 million.

The figure includes $29,183,386 donated by the Supreme Council, and $128,901,128 in contributions from state and local councils, assemblies and Squires circles.

Sixty percent of the contributions were for projects at the community level, many involving youth activities. Large donations during the period included $250,000 by Supreme Council and $3,378,000 by state and local councils for Special Olympics as well as $1,593,000 by Supreme Council and $5,950,073 by state and local for the support and promotion of religious vocations.

The survey also indicated that the quantity of volunteer service hours to charitable causes by Knights grew to 70,053,149 – an increase of 797,507 hours compared to 2009. There were more than 418,841 Knights of Columbus blood donations during the year.

Cumulative figures show that during the past decade, the Knights of Columbus has donated $1.406 billion to charity, and provided more than 653 million hours of volunteer service in support of charitable initiatives.

interesting quote from that thread:


My dads been a "Knight" my whole life. I'm in a small town so the "Lodge" is the upstairs of a community building owned by the church and the group of "knights" is comprised of dad and 6 other old guys. They fund-raise for local causes. They sell tickets and meals and whatnot. When that's not going on they escape to the hall to watch sports and get drunk. I've never seen anything go on there worthy of a conspiracy site. Of course, I could be a shill. I shoot pool and drink with the old guys occasionally. More fun than you'd think.

That's not very different of the description of the life of low degree freemasons in a small town.

The problem are the high degree members, specially in the big cities....
