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

'Pledge of Allegiance' Update

The House, citing the nation's religious origins, voted Wednesday to protect the Pledge of Allegiance from federal judges who might try to stop schoolchildren and others from reciting it because of the phrase "under God."

Thank you brother knights for asserting your influence over Congress this week in getting this legislation passed. The words "under God" were originally inserted into the pledge by our order, and they shall remain in the pledge by the efforts of our order. Make no mistake about it, the federal court ruling against the pledge was nothing less than a veiled attack on our nation's Christian heritage, Roman Catholicism -- and our knightly order in particular. I especially want to thank our brother knights in the House of Representatives who voted for this bill, and convinced their fellow congressman to do likewise. To all my brother knights I say; your labor shall not be forgotton. Now on to the Senate! Tempus Fugit, Momento Mori
