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

Reality Check 2008

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: As far as the Pro-Life and Pro-Family cause is concerned, the presidential election of 2008 is a wash. Neither of the frontrunner presidential candidates on the Democratic side (Clinton or Obama) will be kind to these key issues of social justice. On the Republican side, the presumed nominee (John McCain) is weak on these issues, and has a history of scandalous compromise. Only a naive voter would believe this man would do anything more or less than live up to his abysmal reputation. John McCain is not Pro-Life, and his supposed "opposition" to legalized gay-marriage is questionable.

A coworker friend of mine recently asked me a question on the way into work the other day. "What do you think of our choice in candidates this election season?" I responded; "I think God is trying to tell us to stop relying on men to save our country."

Let's face it. The America we once knew is lost. It's gone folks - now a relic in a museum - pages in a history book. What remains is an empty shell, slowly eroding away, thanks to the cancers of Democratic Liberalism, and Republican Globalism. If the election of 2008 teaches us anything it is this. One man cannot save this country. There will be no "messiahs" for America. I encourage you to vote this November, and to vote Pro-Life, but keep in mind that voting by itself hasn't saved this country so far. So it's highly unlikely it will save it in the future. When the 2008 election is over and done, we may be forced to resign ourselves to a more "european style" United States of America.

What can we do now? 'The Catholic Knight' offers no promises, just a practical battle plan....
  1. PRAY - start a regimented prayer plan for your life modeled after the Divine Office.
  2. PRAY - entrust the United States to Our Lady of America.
  3. PRAY - specifically for your own elected officials, no matter who they are, and regularly let them know that you're praying for them, and specifically why.
That's it. There is nothing else left.
