THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: 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.

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
