Dear Senator Harris, Senator Hirono, and respective staffs
Greetings from your local, Capitol Hill-area Knights of Columbus Council, Patrick Cardinal OBoyle Council 11302! We recently read about statements which expressed the fear that the Knights of Columbus held many extreme beliefs. It is our great pleasure to assure you that this fear is not grounded in any truth. The Knights of Columbus in general, and OBoyle Council in particular are dedicated to the three fundamental principles of charity, unity, and fraternity.
In the past few months OBoyle Council has worked with local parishes including St Peters (House-side Catholic church) and St Josephs (Senate-side Catholic church) to raise funds and give away over $4,000 worth of coats to neighborhood children, collect soda and beer can tabs to donate to the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Institute which helps the developmentally disabled, and collect diapers and other supplies for new mothers in need. Over the course of the past year we donated an ultrasound machine to a clinic, picked up trash around Nationals Park, and donated supplies to a local school. We do all this as well as social gatherings and spiritual events. We hope this list of activities help to assure you that we are simply a group aiming to do Gods work while building friendships.
We wish to formally invite you all to join us for any social or charitable event. In fact, this February we are doing the Polar Plunge to raise funds for DC Special Olympics. You and anyone you know are more than welcome to join us either jumping in the cold water or sponsoring our team. Our teams page can be viewed at https://give.specialolympicsdc.org/kofc. Additionally, if any Catholic men on your staff are interested in joining OBoyle Council for charitable and social events they can find more information on our website at https://oboyle.dcknights.org/ and Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KofC11302/. If you have any further questions or concerns please reach out to us at email@example.com.
Thank you for this opportunity to write to you. We pray that you have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well, it looks as though 2019 is off “to a good start” with these two reprobates! I had hopes that 2019 would be a better year than 2018, but it looks like that’s not likely to be the case.
Hirono, the skank, doesn’t deserve a response. Only scorn and to be ignored for her ignorance.
Marxists are anti-any religion not just the Catholic one. They preach that religion is the opiate of the people and want the state to supplant it. It is basic to them.
Of course, the Clintons and Obama were at one time against same-sex marriage. That was the default position in America. It wasn't even controversial for a couple centuries.
I have an observation which is, of course, no shock to those of us here at FR, but still ...
In any political system there will be debate:
Should we change the tax rate by X or by Y?
Should we spend money to replace Z or should we keep what we have?
Should we try to have more A or less A?
The Democrats today now think that anyone who takes a political position which differs from the current Democrat position is basically a war criminal. Anathema. Someone to be shunned and ostracized. This sort of dehumanization is critical before the purges and show trials can begin.
The basic psychology of the Left is consistent over many, many years. It always ends in an attempt at mass murder.

“We wish to formally invite you all to join us for any social or charitable event.”
“Additionally, if any Catholic men on your staff are interested in joining O’Boyle Council for charitable and social events they can find more information on our website...”
One of my friends is a member.
He is a lifetime vfw member too.
I saw him Friday at the vfw post and I jokingly said to him about the “knights”
I said you all some kinda secret society down there but “we” know what yall up too :)
No one ever comes away evil by being a faithful church attender.
Denominations, schmenominations .... if you listen regularly to a man talk to you about God and Godly things, the bank account you draw from is clean money.
Well if it were the “Knights of Morocco” they might have a gripe but, they’re mere Catholics and NOT a protected class.
A bit mealy-mouthed.
Would have been better to say that there is nothing extreme in opposing the murder of unborn children.
It’s always tricky to deal with people, like Harris and Hirono, who operate entirely in bad faith.
When I joined the K of C the concept of gay marriage did not exist and child sacrifice through abortion was opposed by half of America.
As for Prop 8, IT PASSED, so that majority makes clear the objection is NOT "extreme".
"Extreme" dear Senators, is your perception that anti-Catholic Bigotry is acceptable and that freedom of association is subject to your litmus tests.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
So opposing “gay marriage” is extreme?
There is no lower form of life than Sen Hirono! (even Mika)
