THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT issues an urgent plea to all Catholic bloggers. When you scan the horizon of candidates for president in the 2008 election, you will find none as sincere and authentic on Pro-Life and Pro-Family issues than former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
You know that Rudy Giuliani, a self-professed Roman Catholic, has betrayed his faith on matters of human life and traditional family. You know that John McCain also has a weak record on these things. Fred Thompson has shown a less-than-desirable motivation for the presidency. You may also know that Mit Romney may say all the right things when it comes to these issues, but he doesn't have the record as former governor of Massachusetts to back it. Romney was Pro-Abortion until he decided to run in national politics under the Republican banner. Then suddenly he "switched" to Pro-Life. How convenient! Since in order for a Republican candidate to appeal to southern and Midwestern voters in a national race, voters insist he be Pro-Life.
Mike Huckabee, on the other hand, has a record to back up what he says on the campaign trail. He's the only viable top-tier candidate in this race who does. Check out his website here: http://www.mikehuckabee.com/
Let the call go forth to every Catholic blogger. Do your homework on Mike Huckabee, and then support him boldly on your blog. This underdog needs all of our prayer and support to beat a 'system' that would just assume put a left-of-center 'moderate' like Rudy Giulliani in the Whitehouse.
Please join the 'Rosary for Huckabee' campaign (see top of page). Then make a bold statement for him on your blog. Please take action now! You're faith demands it, and your country so desperately needs it.

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.....
