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

The Question of Our Time

It has come to my attention that the recent cartoon related violence in the middle east has been sponsored by some governing regimes within the region. Clearly this is a case of political Islamofacism, rather than the religion of Islam in general. While it may be easier to distinguish between religious Islam and political Islamofacism in non-Muslim countries, it seems that it's becoming more and more difficult to tell the difference in places like the middle east. My question is this. Is Islam (the religion) capable of reigning in political Islamofacism at all? Or has political Islamofacism become so mainstreamed that it threatens to gobble up the religion of Islam entirely?
