Knights of Columbus Confront Occupy Vatican


Edit: I knew there was a reason for the Knights of Columbus.


VANCOUVER — More than a dozen protesters left the Occupy Vancouver demonstration and stood face to face with church officials over the weekend at the downtown Holy Rosary Cathedral as a planned march to "Occupy the Vatican" made it to the front stairs outside the building before being thwarted.

On Sunday afternoon, up to six Catholic-sponsored Knights of Columbus — as well as a handful of Vancouver police officers — stood guard at the top of the concrete stairs as a breakaway faction of Occupy protesters shouted slogans and demanded answers for atrocities committed at residential schools in years past.

The breakaway faction claims the church sits on native land.

  1. Please tell me that Vancouver has more than 6 Fourth-Degree Knights- and that they appeared in full Regalia complete with sword.
