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

The Unlikely Disciple


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Okay, so here's a promo trailer for a book about a New England liberal college student who enrolls in Liberty University, a hard-core Evangelical college founded by the Reverend Jerry Falwell. The purpose of this experiment was to document the hatred and intolerance he found there. Instead what he found was not so hateful nor intolerant at all. People were nice to him. He discovered a different kind of diversity, with a wholesome quality, and he started to like it. In fact, his book turned out to be a dissertation on why Evangelicals aren't so bad, and how the secular world can relate to them in a meaningful and productive manner. His book was immediately received with hatred, intolerance and scorn -- not by Evangelicals, but by the very liberal audience whom the book was written for.  Oh, the irony!
