Better than Kiddie Porn? – Political (GOP) Arm of the KoC Brotherhood – Bishop Finn’s Buddies at the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus There to Protect Him? Pius XII Council 4962 Kansas City MO


Council Hall #4962
5101 Blue Ridge Cutoff
Kansas City, MO 64133

The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the Knights' respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called "assemblies"). Fourth Degree members must retain their membership as Third Degree members in their council to remain in good standing with the Fourth Degree....

Bearers of this emblem (wink,nod) are committed to conduct themselves honorably as Christian gentlemen in their private and public lives, as well as acting patriotically for the good of their nations. Likewise, the Fourth Degree sword represents the bearer's reverence for the Eucharist and the Pope, Bishops and hierarchy of the Church, and displays publicly his willingness to protect his Church and Priests. (at all cost of human misery and human dignity to victims of sex abuse if need be?)


John Wanamaker Department Store NYC - Astor Place - Grennwich Village, Broadway 8th Street to 9th Street

Wanamaker’s business philosophy, which dominated the retail operations of his department store, relied on fixed prices and guaranteed customer satisfaction. His department store included the first in-store restaurant – now a staple at most department stores in New York City. Wanamaker is also believed to have invented the White Sale, a marketing strategy in which the store deeply discounts merchandise at a time when sales are slow. Wanamaker’s treatment of his employees was also revolutionary – he gave his employees free medical care, education, recreational facilities, pensions and profit-sharing plans before such benefits were considered standard. Wanamaker’s decision to link his store to the new subway can be seen as another revolutionary (and successful) effort.
