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

AFTER you read the election results above, you can learn about the future of America here.

'The Catholic Knight' wishes to congratulate President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama on his historic victory.   The anguish of a Pro-Life defeat is comforted in part by the knowledge that the United States has finally overcome the nemesis of racism - at least in part.  Nothing can ever change the election results of this night.  They will live forever in the annals of American history.  For the first time ever, a non-white candidate was elected President of the United States.  That is a momentous leap forward for our nation.

On the flip-side, something terrible has happened tonight.  The cause for the sanctity of life was defeated, and not just defeated, but defeated mightily.  Americans have chosen to plunge this nation deep into the "culture of death" by electing a man who has promised to sign the "Freedom of Choice Act" (F.O.C.A.).  This is a bill, which if signed into law, would guarantee abortion throughout the entire United States, to anyone regardless of existing law, at the taxpayers expense if necessary, all the way through the ninth month of pregnancy.  He has also promised to nominate Supreme Court Justices, and federal judges, that have a favorable view of Roe v. Wade, and would repel any legal challenge to it.  For this our nation will certainly be punished.

Likewise, tonight Americans also elected a socialist - albeit a "Christian" socialist (read more here).   The echoes of "Black Liberation Theology," which Obama adheres to, will soon be heard in the halls of the Whitehouse and the chambers of Congress.  Taxes will rise and wealth will be "redistributed."  It's almost a guarantee Obama's figure of $250,000, as an income threshold he promised he would not tax below, will not stand.  Even in the days before his election, that number dropped to $200,000 then $150,000.  (Anyone see a trend here?)  As for healthcare, if American's think it's expensive now, they haven't seen anything yet - just wait until it's free!  I'm only scratching the surface here.  The United States has just taken a hard Left turn, and chances are it will probably never recover fully.

The ever increasing expansion of the federal government will only create more problems in the years ahead.  I fear in four years we won't recognize our nation anymore.  Even if Republicans manage to snatch a victory in 2012, they will not be able to undo the new entitlement programs put into place by President Obama and the Congressional Democrats.  Those entitlement programs will be our national undoing eventually.  By 2016 I fear state secession movements will enter the mainstream of political conversation.  By 2020 a majority of Americans may even favor them in some regions of the Union.  The ever expanding size of our federal government will eventually tear this nation apart, and I'm afraid the Republicans just lost their last opportunity to stop it from happening.  The election of big-government Barack Obama may have been the first domino to fall in a long chain eventually resulting in the dissolution of the Union.  (read more here)

As for now, 'The Catholic Knight' offers this prayer for our President-Elect...

In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please protect our future president from all harm.

Change his heart, O Lord, to embrace the miracle of life,
and turn away from the sin of abortion.
Help him to understand that human rights begin,
when human life begins,
and not a moment later.

Give him wisdom to govern in all other things as well,
so that our people will learn
that you change the hearts of men,
and you alone are God.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God,
world without end.
