Hairy Knocks Vs The Pope
This just gets better all the time

You're gonna love this. Here's some of the article from the; (Emphasis mine) Obama Adviser Accused Catholic Church of ‘Insulting’ Jesus, Accused Pope of ‘Hurting People in the Name of Jesus’

( - A homosexual-rights activist whom President Obama appointed last month to a White House advisory council had--just three weeks before his appointment--posted a statement on the Web site of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s most prominent homosexual-rights organization, accusing Pope Benedict XVI, leader of the Roman Catholic Church, of “hurting people in the name of Jesus.”

In March, the HRC also posted a photograph of the pope and a statement attacking him on a new Web site the group created that month that it says is designed for “calling out those who maliciously use lies and misinformation to interfere with the LGBT community’s path to equality.”

On the day Obama appointed [Harry] Knox as one of his advisers, the HRC posted a statement by Knox about his new role in the administration.

In the statement, Knox said, “Of course, we will support the President in living up to his promise that government has no place in funding bigotry against any group of people.”

This was not the first time Knox or HRC had attacked Pope Benedict XVI or the Catholic Church.

In 2007, in another written statement posted on HRC’s Web site, Knox accused the Catholic Church of behavior that was “immoral and insulting to Jesus” and doing “spiritual and emotional violence.” That statement was in reaction to an incident that took place in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne, Wyo.

Last month, White House Correspondent Fred Lucas asked the White House in writing whether the president would withdraw the appointment as Pence requested, and whether President Obama agreed with Knox’s statement that the pope is a “discredited leader” and, if not, did he believe Knox should apologize.

On April 15, White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki told, “We don’t have a response to that. You can say we declined to comment,” she added.

Harry Knox did not respond to voicemail messages asking if he would like to comment on the statements he made about the pope and the Catholic Church that are posted on the Human Rights Campaign Web site.
