Asking for an Ass Beating
(Hat tip: Mark Shea)
Disgusting behavior is rewarded rather than getting the ass beating it deserved:
For those who were shocked by Obama "faith" advisor Harry Knox knocking the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic men's group, as an "army of oppression," he is not alone. Gay activists are now taking pride in getting Knights charity drives crushed at supermarkets.(emphasis added)
Metro Weekly, a D.C-based gay "news" magazine, honored a man for his "Storefront Stand" -- he harassed Knights of Columbus volunteers raising funds for the mentally disabled (usually with Tootsie Roll candies) outside a Safeway store in northern Virginia. Allison also succeeded in getting other Knights thrown off one Giant supermarket's property. To passers-by at Safeway, Brad Allison compared the Knights to the Ku Klux Klan: "It is a bit of an extreme point to be making, but I thought it was effective."
Each time the Knights of Columbus man would say, "Would you like to help disabled children?" I would speak up and say, "They are not helping disabled children. They gave $1.4 million to Prop 8 last year. Not a penny of that $1.4 million helped a single disabled child. They are a political group pretending to be a charitable group in order to get your money."
Again, over and over this worked. People put their dollars back in their pockets.
Metro Weekly also reported that Allison's complaints to a manager at a Giant supermarket at Greenbriar Town Center in Fairfax County were immediately successful in ending the Knights charity drive at that store...
I stood in front of a Wal-Mart for 2 hours on Saturday, on behalf of my local Knights of Columbus council, raising money for our local school for the mentally disabled.
If that guy had shown up at my location to harass me and slander the Knights of Columbus (not to mention deprive the mentally disabled of donations) in that manner, I'd have probably punched him in the mouth.
On the other hand, in this part of the country, his antics would've probably caused our donations to increase dramatically.
