Equally Blessed members express concern about Crux moving to Knights of Columbus

DignityUSA, a member of the Equally Blessed coalition, has expressed grave concern after receiving news that the Knights of Columbus would underwrite the Catholic news service "Crux," effective April 1, 2016.

I am deeply concerned that the Knights may try to use the trust Crux has built as an authority on ‘all things Catholic’ to silence voices that have important perspectives on key issues facing our Church and our world.

This was my immediate reaction to the announcement, also. How will Crux maintain its integrity under the "sponsorship" of the KofC?
