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.”

There's nothing wrong with this guy serving in the administration in some capacity. But he's in a position where he's supposed to be networking with actual, you know, established churches and religions, not tiny apostate Faith of One Man religions.

But he's the guy Obama needs connecting with the Catholic Church on charitable partnerships. Another case where The Great Transcender chooses to stick a thumb in the eye of traditionalists in order to deliver the left a political payoff. And here he's directly undermining the entire mission of the council involved, which is charged with promoting religious charity and recoverry programs, not with advancing the gay marriage agenda.
