MRC's Bozell, American Papist Blogger Discuss Harry Knox's Anti-Catholicism on 'Hannity'

Anti-Catholic bigot and Obama faith-based initiative advisor Harry Knox must be fired, Media Research Center's Brent Bozell and numerous other conservative signatories demanded in an open letter to President Barack Obama.

Picking up on the story, "Hannity" substitute host Tucker Carlson had Bozell and fellow signatory American Papist blogger Thomas Peters on the Friday, February 5 show to discuss Knox's record of anti-Catholic rhetoric, including his refusal to apologize for saying that the Pope's opposition to condoms was "hurting people in the name of Jesus."

Said Bozell [audio available here]:

This is a man who is, let's make it clear, he's an activist with the Human Rights Campaign. He's an activist homosexual who hates the Catholic Church. He's an anti-Catholic bigot. He has a long history of making these kind of comments.

That's not the only thing this man has said.

He has said, "The Catholic Church is guilty of behavior that is immoral and insulting to Jesus."

So he's not only insulted the Holy Father, he's insulted the Catholic Church.


He has called the Knights of Columbus the "foot soldiers in the discredited army of oppression." This man is an anti-Catholic bigot. What in the world is he doing sitting on the advisory council of a faith-based initiative on neighborhood partnerships?!
