Hello Brother Stephen,
Thank you for taking the time to post this forum topic.
Here is some information on this topic: http://iowakofc.org/profiles/blogs/knights-of-columbus-change-fourt...
Although this issue can be discussed publicly by anyone, here in your forum, I also suggest that Fourth Degree members go here (http://iowakofc.org/group/fouth-degree) for a more private discussion group.
I'd like to note that I have seen this topic discussed heatedly in other places, so I urge discussion participants to think, pray, and wait a day before posting anything. Charity, unity, and fraternity should be maintained at all times.
Peace be with you.
