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

Michael J. Fox ADMITS He Never Read Amendment 2

From HotAir:

Stephanopoulos: In the ad now running in Missouri, Jim Caviezel speaks in Aramaic. It means, “You betray me with a kiss.” And his position, his point, is that actually even though down in Missouri they say the initiative is against cloning, it’s actually going to allow human cloning.

Fox: Well, I don’t think that’s true. You know, I campaigned for Claire McCaskill. And so I have to qualify it by saying I’m not qualified to speak on the page-to-page content of the initiative. Although, I am quite sure that I’ll agree with it in spirit, I don’t know, I— On full disclosure, I haven’t read it, and that’s why I didn’t put myself up for it distinctly.


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT:
Ah but Michael, you did put yourself up for Claire McCaskill distinctly, and you did so quite distinctly on the grounds that she supports the human-cloning embryonic stem-cell initiative (i.e. "Amendment 2"). You also quite distinctly put yourself up against Jim Talent, once again quite distinctly, on the grounds that he opposes the human-cloning stem-cell initiative (i.e. "Amendment 2"). So in your campaigning for Claire McCaskill on this issue, you have quite distinctly (intended or not) given a blanket approval to the human-cloning stem-cell initiative known as "Amendment 2." Believe me Michael, that's EXACTLY how the voters in Missouri took it, since that is the defining issue on the ballot in Missouri, not the senatorial race between Talent and McCaskill.
