Last night, Brent Bozell (Media Research Center) and Thomas Peters (American Papist) appeared on Fox News' Hannity program to discuss the Harry Knox controversy. Knox, the gay-rights activist whom President Obama appointed to his Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, has a history of making anti-Christian -- and, in particular, anti-Catholic -- statements. For example, last March Knox said the following:
"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."
When given a chance to retract the comment this past Tuesday, Knox obstinately stood by it. Considering that this miserable fellow continues to make such bigoted and inflammatory public statements while serving at the pleasure of the President, should we not conclude that the President himself takes pleasure in such bigotry?
