In response [to frustration with the tone in politics], the Knights of Columbus has launched a national, nonpartisan initiative “to give voice to Americans desire for civility in public discourse.”
Irony, irony! The KOC desires “civility in public discourse” even though it was gloriously uncivil in the run up to the vote on same-sex marriage in New York.
The KOC can sense incivility in others but is blind to its own.
Typical, alas, of most religious institutions.
