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.....

The "Tolerant" Left Says World Not Big Enough For Catholic Pope
The pope is scheduled to visit Britain later this week, and I must say, I have not been so concerned for his safety since he visited Turkey back in 2006. I'm actually a little more concerned. Radical Muslims are at least predictable. Radical Leftists are a whole different lot. You never know what they're going to do, and Britain is a very Leftist country with a lot of Leftist people. At least with the Turks we could say the national government had a vested interest in making sure nothing happened to the pontiff during his stay, for fear of national embarrassment and sparking an international religious crisis. I'm not so sure I can say the same about the Brits. Revelations from earlier this year indicate the British government does not take the pope's visit nearly as seriously, and many within the inner circle of planning have a Leftist dislike for him. I suppose this is the Brits' big chance to prove themselves. Just how "tolerant" can their Leftists really be?
