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

Catholics in American Politics

As we approach the 2008 elections, not that you should forget the ones in between, as Catholics we have a growing voice in American politics. In the last presidential election, the views of Catholics became the new “soccer moms” of previous elections. We see over and over the differences in voting habits of practicing Catholics, non-practicing, occasional practicing and whatever else the pollsters can come-up with. The greatest outgrowth of the emerging Catholic voice is the increased activity into politics for these individuals. So what are your ideas to promote Catholic views in the public debate? Do you take a pragmatic view or a spiritual one? Do Catholic views find their home in the Republican, Democrat or another political party?
