Last year I was honored to join the prestigious Knights of Columbus (my Dad was a Knight and my father-in-law and some of my brothers are fellow Knights and besides I couldn't find the local Stonecutters.) They do very extensive charity work and are also heavily involved in church going activities. Today, I'm assuming in honor of my birthday, the Knights just knights emblem.gifpassed some new resolutions during its 126th Supreme Council Meeting in Quebec City.

One is a resolution calling for "legal and constitutional protection . . . for the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others." The other is a resolution opposing "any governmental action or policy that promotes abortion, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, euthanasia, assisted suicide and other offenses against life." A third vows to "uphold that all religious believers have the right to express and live out the truth of their faith both in their personal lives and in the public square."

The Knights have long been involved in different national and international efforts to protect marriage, liberty and life - however it is great to see them put it into writing this way.
