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

Democrats Prepare To End Free Speech On The Internet

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The very undemocratic Democrats, and intolerant ministers of tolerance in the U.S. Congress, after having prepared measures to silence conservative talk radio via the "Fairness Doctrine," now move to silence their opposition on the Internet under the guise of "cyberbullying."
