Knights Of Columbus: We’re Too Powerful To Be Bullied About Our Pro-Prop 8 Donations

The Knights of Columbus, the Connecticut-based Catholic group, in 2009 donated some $1.4 million to the National Organization for Marriage, more than it used to fund to food and educational programs. But while that information was already known, what’s worth noting is that while NOM has gone to court to hide its donor list, KoC freely disclosed its pro-discrimination donation. How come? Says spokesman Patrick Korten: “The fact of the matter is that those who favor same sex marriage are working hard to intimidate individuals and groups that support our cause, but [the Knights] are big enough that intimidation doesn’t work on us.”
