A Worker of Holiness in the Cult of Molech (UPDATED)
Meet your new President of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Episcopal priest Harry Knox:
War is being waged, and it isn’t overseas extremists, but rather Roman Catholic bishops who perpetrate the assault, according to the new head of a religious left group that fights for abortion on demand.
“We can’t let religious bullies silence us,” argues Harry Knox, the former head of the Episcopal Church’s LGBT caucus, and now the new President of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), formerly the Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights. Knox describes as “holy work” his efforts to counter a “war on women in the name of religion,” a conflict “so vicious that it’s hurting all of us.”
RCRC’s opponents, Knox assesses, want to “send women back to the dark ages” and “strip women of fundamental human rights.”
“I’ve been called to lead a religious movement for reproductive justice,” Knox summarized in a video introducing himself to RCRC supporters, which counts 15 Jewish, Unitarian Universalist, and liberal Mainline Protestant caucuses and church agencies among its affiliates.
Jeff Walton of the Institute on Religion and Democracy has even more gory details at the American Spectator.
UPDATE: Jeff Walton wrote me with a correction: Harry Knox is a pastor in the Metropolitan Community Church (I’m sure he’s with RCRC because so many of his members have unplanned pregnancies they need to abort), but does have an Episcopal connection by virtue of being a former interim director of Integrity. He was originally ordained in the United Methodist Church.
