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

Do Gays Really "Deserve To Die"?

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: So said Mohsen Yahyavi, the highest-ranked politician in Iran. That's what radical Muslims believe, and like it or not, many of these radical Muslims control entire nations in the middle east. The above quote in the headline is not from me. It doesn't represent my views at all, nor does it represent the views of anyone I know. It certainly doesn't represent the teachings of my religion, and that is the whole point of this post. Roman Catholicism does teach that homosexuality is a sin, but it DOES NOT teach that homosexuals should be punished by any civil penalty -- especially the death penalty. For that matter, the same could be said of mainstream Protestant and Evangelical communities. The fact is that a Christian society does not demand the torture and murder of human beings just because their sexual ethic doesn't jive with a Christian theological world view. In the Islamic world, however, things are a little bit different.

Put aside America's War on Islamic Fascism for a moment. Let's just talk about demographics. In Europe, were the reproduction rate is low, the governments are forced to import Muslim immigrants just to keep their Social Security system afloat. The only problem with that is that Muslim couples reproduce at least twice as fast as Christian couples, and nearly four times as fast as Secular couples. Do the math. At the current reproduction trend, it's just a matter of time before European nations succumb to a Muslim majority. Once that happens, its only a matter of time before radicals gain control and begin to implement their murderous agenda. Who will suffer the most? Obviously European gays will not fair well.

The same problem exists for the United States, though the progression is set to happen at a much slower pace. Nevertheless, the results will be the same if nothing is done to change it.

What homosexual advocacy groups often fail to realize is that the ONLY thing standing between them and open persecution by a Muslim majority is a healthy and robust Christian society. Secularists just don't reproduce fast enough to keep the Social Security system going. Christians barely reproduce fast enough to keep it limping along, and that's only because most western Christians don't practice the Christian ethic on reproduction. If western Christians did practice the sexual ethics of their religion, and were not shunned for doing so, then perhaps they could produce a robust Christian society strong enough to ward off the threat of an Islamic takeover.

What I'm saying is this. If I were a homosexual, an openly gay man, I would be doing everything I could to protect and shelter the religious freedom of Christians in this country. Because in the end, I would understand, that the only thing keeping me (and future homosexuals) from being severely persecuted by a Muslim majority is a healthy and robust Christian society...
( - Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learned.

Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged.

President Ahmadinejad, questioned by students in New York two months ago about the executions, dodged the issue by suggesting that there were no gays in his country...
