Knights of Pythias Today

KOP… Still off limits to Catholics?

Not that I want to join, as I consider the organization as propagators of weeds among us.

For those who don’t know… Knights of Pythias was the first Secret Society approved by an Act of Congress. So say, it was started by Masons.

At one time, membership was forbidden by the Catholic Church.

From Catholic Answers:
The Church has also judged that the Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias , the Orangemen, the Sons of Temperance, and the Communist Party are forbidden societies.
