It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

OPEN LETTER TO CATHOLIC LAWMAKERS

Dear Catholic Members of Congress:

On December 2, the Center for Policy Alternatives is holding its annual Summit on the States at the Capital Hilton. Included in this year’s program is a meeting hosted by Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC) titled, “Progressive, Pro-choice and Catholic—An Endangered Species?” The strategy session is expected to include presentations from Catholic pro-choice members of Congress.

CFFC is not simply an abortion-rights group—it is a profoundly anti-Catholic organization. That is why the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has twice voted to condemn CFFC as a fraud. CFFC’s president, Frances Kissling, has even gone so far as to say that her goal is to “overthrow” the Catholic Church.

My reason for writing is plain: any Catholic who consorts with CFFC is no friend of the Catholic Church. Accordingly, I urge all of you not to attend this session. In the event you decide to be a part of Kissling’s session, I can assure you that I will give your presence at this event free publicity: your constituents need to know who their leaders really are.

Sincerely,

William A. Donohue, Ph.D.
President
Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights
