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

Congratulations President Obama

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT:  Readers of this blog know that I have never been a fan of Barack Obama.  In fact I have vigorously opposed his candidacy from the moment he become the Democratic nominee on the grounds of his militant pro-abortion stand.  That being said however, 'The Catholic Knight' is known for giving recognition where it is due.  Tomorrow something amazing and wonderful is going to happen.  The first black president of the United States will be sworn into office.  That alone, all by itself, is significant.  It means something very important.  It means that in spite of whatever might happen over the next four years, and no matter how his presidency may turn out, the American people have elected a person of color to the Whitehouse, and nothing can take that away.  If it was ever said that the American people can never change, and that the scar of racism will forever haunt this nation, let this election say otherwise.  While racism will always be a problem, not just in America but around the world, we can now say with honesty that American voters are colorblind.  When given a choice between a white and black candidate, they can (indeed they have) chosen the later.  That alone, by itself, is something to celebrate.  Tomorrow, 'The Catholic Knight' celebrates with the rest of America.  On Wednesday, it's back to the business of defending the unborn.
