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

Senators Who Voted For Embryonic Stem-Cell Research

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Yesterday, the Republican controlled Senate betrayed Catholic voters, and other Pro-Life voters, by passing a bill that would farm out live human embryos for scientific research. THESE ARE HUMAN BABIES which the Senate effectively designated as experimental guinea pigs. All but one Democratic Senator, (Ben Nelson of Nebraska), voted in favor of the bill. I tip my hat to Senator Nelson for doing the right thing. The rest of the Democrats simply towed the party line that pre-born babies are expendable. The following is a list of all the senators who voted for the bill. I suggest we make them pay dearly for it in the upcoming primaries...
