PORT COQUITLAM, BC, November 30, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A member of the Knights of Columbus who is in charge of renting the fraternity's hall for weddings and other events alleges he was fired from his day job at Costco for his involvement in denying two lesbians the facility for their same-sex "wedding."

I knew it was just a matter of time before this would happen. The homosexual lobby has become so powerful that they can actually get a major retailer like Costco to violate somebody's civil rights over the fear of offending homosexuals if they don't. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Soon other companies will follow, and then we'll see government organization do the same. It won't be long before practicing Catholicism is unofficially "illegal" in Canada by virtue of the fact that practicing Catholicism is considered "discriminatory" toward homosexuals. Thus, being Catholic, will effectively be "illegal" without actually saying it that way. There are basically only two things we can do to fight this -- three if you live in Canada...
- Boycott Costco, and send their corporate headquarters a courteous letter explaining why.
- Send donations to the Canadian Knights of Columbus for their 'legal defense fund.'
- (If you live in Canada) lobby for changes in the law that protect religious freedom on homosexual matters.
