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

Knights Pledge To Keep Pushing Constitutional ‘Marriage Protection Amendment’

Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson said today [June 7] that the U.S. Senate’s failure to approve the Marriage Protection Amendment is “deeply disappointing,” and noted the irony of the fact that the 49-48 vote “comes one day after Alabama became the 20th state to adopt a state constitutional amendment protecting marriage....

“Next month, the U.S. House of Representatives will also vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment, and we will once again join with the Catholic Bishops of the United States in urging them to vote to approve it,” Anderson said.

“We will support the efforts to adopt state constitutional amendments protecting marriage at the polls this fall. And we will redouble our efforts to build momentum for adoption of the Marriage Protection Amendment.

“It is absolutely essential that elected officials and citizens everywhere recognize the urgent need to act before the courts destroy society’s most valuable building block,” Anderson concluded.

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Here is something the Left Wing in this country just doesn’t understand. We, the Catholic Knights in America, by enlisting the aid of millions of registered voters WILL eventually get this Amendment passed. Our motivation is religious fervor. As far as we’re concerned, this is a crusade! Year after legislative year, we will not rest -- EVER -- until our mission is accomplished. Each legislative year we just get a little bit closer to our goal. The radical Left just doesn’t understand who they’re dealing with, or what they’re up against. Victory will be ours, and unrelenting persistence is the method through which we will attain it. After the Congressional elections in November, expect this issue to come up again in the following legislative session, and again the year after that, and so on, and so on, and so on... You know what I mean.
