Harry Knox is the Obama Administration appointment to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He is the former head of Human Rights Campaign, one of the largest organizations attempting to get special rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals (The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was designed to provide equal protection under the law). An example of homosexuals trying to gain special rights is hate crime legislation. Knox is an outspoken anti-Catholic bigot. In 2007, he said that the Catholic Church had committed an act that was “immoral and insulting to Jesus” when it denied communion to a lesbian couple.

In this holy Lenten season, it is immoral and insulting to Jesus to use the body and blood of Christ the reconciler as a weapon to silence free speech and demean the love of a committed, legally married couple.

CNSNews.com asked Knox, "“You put out a statement saying Pope Benedict XVI was—quote—‘hurting people in the name of Jesus’ because he did not support promoting the use of condoms as a means to control the spread of HIV. And I was wondering, do you still believe the pope’s position on condoms is ‘hurting people in the name of Jesus’?” He said, "I do."

He's hurting people in the name of Jesus

In a 2009 statement after Pope Benedict gave a speech,

The Pope’s statement that condoms don't help control the spread of HIV, but rather condoms increase infection rates, is hurting people in the name of Jesus.

In addition, Knox stated the Pope, "spread such blatant falsehoods." What Knox refuses to recognize is that the Pope was correct, condoms have not been proven to reduce AIDS.[1]

Harry Knox spoke with CNSNews.com at a press conference about the “American Prayer Hour.” His faith-based office used the event to "call on all nations, including Uganda, to decriminalize the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people."

Call to Resign

Representative John Boehner stated, “We can’t have in the White House an anti-Catholic bigot, and that’s what this gentleman appears to be.” He has signed a petition calling for his resignation.[2]

The St. Michael Society has a petition drive urging the resignation of Knox.
