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

'League Of The South' Supports Persecuted Catholics In America

The South Stands With Rome Against Washington DC.
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The following statement was sent to me by Dr. Michael Hill, president of the League of the South, an organisation promoting the cultural, economic and political independence of Dixieland...
League of the South statement on Obama's attack on Christians:

9 February 2012

The League of the South abhors President Barack Obama's heavy-handed diktat that would require Christians, both Catholic and Protestant, to purchase (and Christian institutions to provide) health insurance plans that cover sterilizations and artificial contraceptives, including those that induce abortions.

League President, Dr. Michael Hill, noted that "Southerners have respect for human life, in all its stages, as a gift from God. Life should be preserved, nurtured, and protected. What this regime demands is that we support a culture of death. I can assure Mr. Obama that the traditional South will never be complicit in such an enormity. We revere the tenets of our common, historic Christian faith and acknowledge its supremacy over man-made laws, judgements, and opinions. No regime can force us to abandon our conscience on this matter."
No political organisation in the United States has come out with such a strong statement in support of the U.S. Catholic Church's holy crusade against the Obama administration's HHS mandate.

This latest affront to the religious freedom of Catholics, coupled with multiple other assaults against everything the Catholic Church teaches, including a recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioning the defamation of the Catholic Church by the city government of San Francisco, has made it painfully clear that the United States federal government (as a whole), seated in Washington DC, has become an anti-Catholic institution. Many of its recent international wars have been condemned by the Vatican. Its policy of assisting those who persecute Christians in North Africa and the Middle East is reprehensible. Now we have this string of assaults on the freedom and dignity of Catholics (as well as other Christians) here in the United States.  This is the proverbial 'straw that broke the camel's back.'

I have for over a year now educated the readers of this blog on the history of northern (federal) aggression against the Southern people of Dixieland. The continual defamation of Southern heritage and culture is an ongoing scourge that has never relented since 1861. I invite my readers to examine the 'Dixie' topic on this blog and see for yourselves. The United States federal government is a tyrannical empire, far worse than that of King George III, which spawned the American Revolution. This latest assault by the Obama administration's HHS mandate is just the latest link in a long chain of abuses.

For this reason, I (The Catholic Knight) now seek the full cultural, economic and political INDEPENDENCE of Dixieland. Only a robust and credible secession and independence movement within the United States can compel Washington DC to reform its wicked and anti-Christian ways. Within the next 48 hours I shall submit my application for membership within the League of the South. I am calling upon all faithful Catholics who live within the thirteen original states of the Confederacy to do the same.  (see application here)  Please assist me in bringing more Catholics into this fine organisation. There are already many Catholics in leadership positions within it. I am also asking other Catholics who do not live in the South to consider supporting this cause as well. You don't need to be a Southerner to support Southern independence. Sometimes we Catholics just have to do something because it's the 'right thing to do.' Southern independence will inevitably result in greater freedom for states within other parts of the Union, namely because the federal government will seek to avoid a repeat secession/independence movement elsewhere. Finally, I am asking for my international audience to join us in this struggle by supporting our peaceful independence movement with your prayers and by supporting the League of the South in any other way you can.

We are the PEOPLE OF DIXIELAND.  Our patron is Saint Andrew.  May God free the South!  

Deo Vindice!!!

As a League member and a Southern patriot I'm very pleased to see Dr Hill issue such a statement against this awful Federal action. I'm also pleased to see the brush-fires of liberty being lit across Dixie in beyond. Resistance to tyranny seems to be on the rise... and not a moment too soon.

Don't forget to join your local State chapter too. I know Georgia and Florida each have one.

Resist the Tyrant!

I have followed your blog for some time now. I am so pleased to have you officially with us in the League of the South! May your joining prompt thousands of our Catholic brothers and sisters to follow your lead.

Could this foul federal edict finally be the flash point for the Southron people?

I live in Canada and work in the missions field. Our work was founded in 1850 by a wonderful Catholic nun who even way back then saw the need to protect the unborn. She made it her life's work to seek out very young pregnant women and take them in and care for them and their unborn child because they had nowhere to turn. She faced scorn , and abuse from her community . Mother and her sisters were stoned and had garbage throw at them when they would walk these tiny enfants to Church to be baptized.

The more I read here at your blog, CK, the more I am in awe of how God worked through this little simple humble woman to save the lives of the unborn. She was so ahead of her time.

I share this story with you for several reasons.

First of all to tell you how pround our foundress would be of our wonderful Catholic neighbors and how you are standing up for the unborn. She is with you in spirit, of that you can be assured.

Secondly to give you courage and strength. If God in his compassionate love for the unborn child can start such a mission with just one sister and one bishop can you imagine what he will do with the army of the faithful he is raising up here in you.

Our foundress, we call her Mother, never in her lifetime thought her mission would go to all corners of the world. Never did she imagine how many babies she would save.

CK, the Lord is really working in you. As you know I have been following your blog for a while. Your heart is on fire for the Lord. You are a great leader here in the mission fields as we fight for the unborn.

Lots of prayers and sacrifices are being offered up every day for your intentions. God Bless you and all of the faithful that post here.

The League of the South has been denounced as a "racist hate group" by the SPLC. Really Catholic Knight? Even if you don't accept that the League is racist, aren't you tarnishing the history of the Catholic Church by associating with any organization that has been accused of such un-Christian behavior?

The Catholic Knight said...

The SSPX as well as other Traditional Catholic groups have been accused of racism and anti-Semitism by the SPLC. The SPLC has also accused other conservative Christian groups of racism and bigotry. The SPLC has been denounced by black ministers all across the country for their race-baiting activities and there was even a rally-protest in front of their headquarters recently by black ministers. read story here

So in answer to your question. I have not associated the Catholic Church with the League of the South. I have associated myself with the League of the South and nothing more. Beyond that, the League of the South has come to the Catholic Church's aid by renouncing the recent actions of the Obama administration. So the answer to your question is 'no' I am not tarnishing the history of the Catholic Church in any way, and furthermore, if Catholics distanced themselves from every organisation the liberal SPLC attacked, they would have to distance themselves from the Church herself.

Sir Knight,

You may have had this news already, but if not, this is from The Washington Post:

'You know things have taken a turn for the dramatic when a Baptist preacher declares, “Thanks to Obama, we are all Catholics now.” And not just any Baptist preacher, but Mike Huckabee himself.'

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/guest-voices/post/at-cpac-new-kind-of-of-culture-war/2012/02/12/gIQAcM0A9Q_blog.html

I think Huckabee is from the south too, but you would know.

Even though the Church in America may lose some dead wood over this issue, it certainly appears to be galvanizing the nation and drawing Protestants and Catholics together, and thus backfiring on the political powers that be.

The Catholic Knight said...

You are correct in your assessment Ann. Yes, Huckabee is a Southerner, and Arkansan to be exact, and yes, this whole HHS affair is drawing Catholics and Protestants together.

I think this ecumenical effect is not what the Whitehouse anticipated. Certainly, the Obama administration has actively sought to drive a wedge between Faithful Catholics and Cafeteria Catholics. The intent was to reduce the size and influence of the Catholic Church in America. That part of the plan may be working, but the unintentional and unexpected consequence of this is the emerging political alliance between Catholics and Baptists, as well as people from other denominations. Will this all backfire on Obama in November? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Jim said...

I will be moving to the south in April for the first time in my life. I've always enjoyed my many trips there in the past.

The Catholic Knight said...

Welcome home Jim. Where abouts are you moving? High country or low? Which state?

Jim said...

I'm moving to Southern Missouri into the country for awhile to get away.
I hope in the next year or so to move to Tennessee, a state I have always liked.

The Catholic Knight said...

Good to have you in the area. I live in Southwest Missouri. You'll find that Missourians tend to struggle with their Southern identity. Some embrace it fully, others tend to consider themselves "Midwesterners" more than "Southerners.". It all depends really. The closer you get to the Arkansas border, the more people are likely to embrace their Southern heritage. Tennessee on the other hand fully embraces their Southern roots. They name roads and bridges after Confederate war heros. Dixie flag can be seen everywhere. It's fully Dixie in every way.

What is the SPLC ? Since you say they hate the SSPX, they can consider me their enemy too. Because the SSPX is hated by the anti-catholic "catholic" hierarchy. This is all very complicated !
