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

California Falls


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: UPDATE 7/14/2011 - Sadly, I was right about California's supposedly "Catholic" governor. He signed the bill, mentioned in story below, into law. Originally posted on July 7th, I am reposting this story today (July 14th) for review....
(LifeSiteNews.com) - A bill requiring public schools to teach the “historical contributions” of homosexual Americans was approved by the California legislature on Tuesday, July 5. The bill also prohibits any school material or instruction that reflects adversely on homosexuality, bisexuality or transgenderism, and prohibits parents from removing children from classes over offensive material....

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Next on the list of states to fall to the homosexual agenda is California. Though voters overwhelming passed Proposition 8 in 2008, prohibiting gay marriage, the homosexual mafia in California (which I like to call "the pink hand") has managed to get it derailed in court, and retaliated with an education bill that would force mandatory homosexual indoctrination upon all public school children in the state. The bill prohibits in public schools any literary material that speaks ill of homosexuality. Now that OFFICIALLY makes the Bible ILLEGAL on California public school campuses. The bill also carries a "no opt-out" clause that prohibits parents from pulling children from classes due to offensive curriculum that violates their religious beliefs. As a result, California public schools will become gay indoctrination zones, making the Bible illegal, and securing a future generation that will be more than happy to give homosexuals anything and everything they ask for -- including gay-marriage.

California Governor Jerry Brown
Another "Catholic" Democrat
With the passage of this bill into law, the State of California has now fallen to the sodomite agenda. Religious persecution of public school children, and their parents, will commence on January 1, 2012.

But wait, you say, the governor hasn't signed it yet! Well, you're right about that. However, the governor is a Catholic and a Democrat, which usually makes the most extreme Left-wing combination, so it's as good as signed as far as I'm concerned. If he doesn't sign it, I will be shocked! He'll be breaking a time honored Catholic-Democrat tradition of going against the Church's teaching on every social issue imaginable. I suppose there is always a first time for everything, but I wouldn't expect it from this man. If on the remote chance he doesn't sign it, than the tradition of the California legislature is to either override the veto or else just try again later. So no matter how you look at it, it's as good as signed into law.

What are faithful Catholic and Evangelical families to do? There are now only three options available to faithful California Christians with school-aged children....
  1. Private School
  2. Home School
  3. Get the hell out of California!
If you can't afford private school, and home school is not a viable option due to your busy lifestyle, I guess that leaves only one option left. The only alternative is to send your children to a California public school with the understanding that you will completely lose control of what they are learning, and you will be legally unable to "opt-out" of any curriculum you find religiously offensive. (Again remember, this goes into effect January 1, 2012. So you have exactly six months to act from the date of this blog entry.)

If you plan to flee the state, please be assured you're in good company, as literally millions of people just like you have done the same over the last 20 years. (I was one of them.) There is no shame in running, especially if it's for the sake of your child's spiritual, emotional and mental welfare. So if you're planning to run, I'll tell you where to go, and what region of the nation will offer you the most religious freedom for the longest period of time. Look at a map of the United States, and start with the State of Texas, then look north all the way up to Kansas. Then look east all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. This is called the "Bible Belt." It is also known as the "Old South" or Dixie. Any state in this region is pretty much a safe haven compared to the rest of the country, especially the West Coast and Northeastern states. Take a look at the map below. Red states are SAFE for religious freedom. They have a proven track record of defending religious freedom and standing up to the homosexual agenda. Blue states are UNSAFE. They are either falling to the homosexual agenda, or vulnerable to fall to it in the near future. These states will likely persecute Christian school children and parents eventually. PURPLE states are a gamble. They could go either way in the distant future, and there is no way to know today what they will do tomorrow. This is because they have sent mixed signals on the issue of gay-marriage and the homosexual agenda. So moving there could be a risk, if not for your children than possibly for theirs.

I'm sorry it's come to this, and with such short notice (only six months) but you can't honestly say you were not warned. The writing has been on the wall for decades now. I got out in the early 1990s, as did many other faithful Christians seeking refuge from what we knew would become oppressive state laws in the not-too-distant future. California has been heading down this trajectory for a VERY LONG TIME.

The good news is that Dixie was not hit as hard by the recession as California or the Northeastern and Rustbelt states. You can still find a good job in Dixie if you look hard enough, and are willing to relocate. Another piece of good news is that housing is relatively affordable in Dixie. An average 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, with an attached garage will still run you around $100,000 in most places, give or take $20,000, the big exception being Florida of course.

These states are fiercely independent, and for the most part anti-Washington establishment. They will resist federal intrusion on issues like this to the last straw. They are also not fond of people working within the states, trying to change laws to favor sodomy. Iowa fell to a court decision favoring gay-marriage a couple years ago. I can testify if the same thing happened in Missouri, it would not set well with the people of this state, and they would resist it to the point of rewriting our state constitution if necessary. (Oh that's right, we Missourians already did that. See what I mean.) Last week I appealed to New Yorkers and all New England Christians who still give a hoot about what the Scriptures and Church have to say about homosexuality. I told them to get out before it's too late for their families. Now, I'm appealing to my fellow Californians. I'm a Native Californian and I left my birth state twenty years ago because I saw the writing on the wall, just as millions of others did. I appeal to you. I know there are still millions of you left who still care about the Scriptures and the teachings of the Church. Get out! Get out now before it's too late for your family. What more can I say? The writing is on the wall. Religious persecution comes next. You have been warned.

Please pass this blog entry on to every Californian you know who is a conservative Christian, especially practicing Catholics, and most especially if they have school-age children. You can use the "share" icons below, or just email a copy of this article.
