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

Real Gay Agenda Exposed -- DESTROY Institution Of Marriage Entirely!

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Now this just makes sense. After a stunning defeat for gay-marriage activists in the New York and Georgia Supreme Courts the other day, a politician who favors gay-marriage unwittingly let the cat out of the bag by announcing her intentions to destroy the institution of marriage entirely. She wants to introduce legislation that would completely nullify the civil institution of marriage in her state, thus downgrading all marriages to mere "civil commitments."

-- 1st Timothy 4:1-3
