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

Gays Plan Pentecost Assault on Catholic Cathedrals

We see homophobia within the Church as both an opportunity for education, and a way to promote the idea of love of neighbor. We are calling for dialog...

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The problem these "rainbow sash" people have is not with homophobia in the Catholic Church. The real problem they have is with the Catholic Church itself -- namely the fact that it teaches Catholicism. Homosexuality is a sin -- period! That teaching is not going to change - ever. Yet, change is exactly what they're looking for. In their fantasy land; what they want to see is the Catholic Church (particularly the pope) come out with the following statement...

"To all the Catholic faithful... I, Pope Benedict XVI, do hereby apologize to homosexuals, gays, lesbians, bisexuals and trans-gendered people all over the world, for the intolerance and ignorance the Catholic Church has shown to you over the last 2,000 years. Therefore, I solemnly declare, invoking the authority of Peter, that homosexuality is no longer a sin. Nor is there any sin with lesbianism, bisexuality, trans-genderism and so forth. From this time forward, it shall be open season on human sexuality within the Catholic Church. Whatever feels good, just do it. Furthermore, I hereby proclaim that all Catholics who disagree with this statement shall be automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church, and all children in Catholic schools shall from this day forward be educated in the 'higher moral standard' of homosexual behavior. To all homosexuals in the Catholic Church, I invoke God's blessing, and call upon you to lead the way into the Third Millennium."

Only then would these "rainbow sash" people be happy. When Catholicism ceases to be Catholic, and when Christianity ceases to be Christian, then and only then, will these "rainbow sash" people be satisfied. To them, and all who sympathize with them, I have this to say. Jesus died to forgive sin, not condone it! Give it up already! You're demonstrations are becoming tired and cliche'. The Catholic Church is NEVER going to embrace homosexuality -- ever. But there is one 'catholic style' church that already does. It's called the Episcopal Church USA, and it's waiting for you with open arms.
