Actually they ARE the Knights Templar and as such will soon be recognized by the Vatican.
It has been noted that Pope Clement V actually pardoned the Knights Templar from alleged heresies in the (Processa contra Templarios).
What remains is for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to annul the Papal Bulls (Vox in Excelso) (Pastoralis Praeeminentiae) and (Ad providam) to fully
restore the Orders Titles, Honors, Lands and properties.
This will require the Knights Hospitallers/Knights of Malta to handover all Templar assets handed to them by the Vatican.
They (KH/KoM) are not so keen on the idea, no surprise there.
