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

Brave New World Order

U.N. pushing to end nation-states
Plan drafted to end disease, poverty, war

The U.N. has a plan to make every Miss America Pageant contestant happy by bringing about "world peace."

All it will take, says the draft of a visionary proposal by the U.N. Development Program, is to getting rid of all the pesky nations of the world.

In fact, the plan endorsed by prominent world figures including Nobel laureates, bankers, politicians and economists to end nation-states as we know them is also designed to end health pandemics, poverty and "global warming."

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: It's the thing fundamentalist Christians and conservative patriots have been warning us about for decades. Many in the U.N. are advocating the creation of the ultimate "New World Order" -- the end of national sovereignty worldwide. To solve the world's problems, the U.N. proposes we put all our eggs into one basket. That way, if one basket should become corrupt, the corruption will be spread equally to all governments of the world. Sounds like a great idea huh?

But what does the teaching of the Catholic Church have to say about this?

Catechism of the Catholic Church...

676 The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgement. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the "intrinsically perverse" political form of a secular messianism.

What many in the U.N. are proposing is just that. They're saying, turn over your national sovereignty to us, and all your problems will be solved. (And if you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell you.) "Secular messianism," as the Church calls it, is the term. I couldn't possibly think of a better way to describe such a proposal.
