Question: May I become a Knight of Columbus while also being a Freemason?
Answer: Absolutely not. Catholicism and Freemasonry are incompatible. One cannot be both a Catholic in good standing and a member of the Freemasonry. [/url].

You people who say that the Knights have an ulterior motive than just being a fraternity are plain wrong. The Knights are dedicated to service of our church and communities as well as the world in the many charitable things we do. The Knights do so much for all people, regardless of race or creed. Generations of men of my family have been nights, and I also am a Knight, and I also have relatives involved with the Masons. I can honestly tell you the only thing they have in common is their charitable works, nothing more; The principles that each stand for is completely different. And it is incorrect to say that a Catholic may become a Mason, it is strictly forbidden by the Vatican. And the name Columbus was chosen because he was the Christian Discoverer of the Americas, what is so weird about that? Simply put, from an actual Knight, the order is simply a fraternity sworn to the protection of the church and it's beliefs through charity work and public education of our religious principles. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps.

If you want to suspect something, I'd suspect the whole Catholic religion.

It looks like it atleast has the perfect facade, looking at some of the replies her. Noone would suspect an organisation which builds new houses for old ladies, for fraud?
