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

Russian Orthodox Church backs Vatican on Gay Seminarian Ban

Moscow, Dec. 09 ( - The Russian Orthodox Church has issued a statement of support for the Vatican's Instruction barring the admission of homosexual men to seminaries.

It's nice to get kudos from other churches on this. I wish other churches (like conservative Evangelical churches) would make similar public statements. Other Christians should keep in mind that the Catholic Church is going to come under serious attack by the Adversary for doing the right thing on this. It helps when other Christians (non-catholic) speak up in support.
