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

U.S. Congress Goes Anti-Catholic -- Again!

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: This isn't the first time the Democrat controlled Congress has pulled an anti-Catholic stunt, and it probably won't be the last time. Now the Democrats in the Senate have stalled the confirmation of Bush's nomination for U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican, potentially leaving the post vacant while the pope is visiting the United States in April. Why? Because Harvard Law School professor Mary Ann Glendon is Pro-Life, and that kind of ideology is OFFENSIVE to the Democrats in Congress. Glendon is opposed by "Catholics for a Free Choice," a known ANTI-CATHOLIC organization that once attempted to expel the Vatican from the U.N. "Catholics for a Free Choice" now has the ear of the Democrats in the Senate, who would just assume send a clear message to the pope this April. By not having a U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican, the United States Congress is loudly and clearly telling Pope Benedict XVI that it will have no open channels with the Vatican unless the Catholic Church changes its teachings on abortion. The message will resonate even louder once the pope visits the U.S. in April.

Readers of this blog should by now be well acquainted with the open hostility displayed to Catholicism by many United States Congressmen in the Democratic Party. Even those who insist on calling themselves "Catholic" (why I don't know) have led the chorus of anti-Catholic hostility. All of this falls under the new form of 'Secular Anti-Catholicism' which opposes the Church primarily on its moral teachings.
