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

A Third Candidate Enters the U.S. Presidential Race

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: As I've said in previous articles, there would be a third candidate for president in the not-too-distant future, and today that future has arrived.  He is former U.S. Congressman for the State of Virginia -- Virgil Goode....

Congressman Virgil Goode
Congressman Goode served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997 to 2009.  He is a Baptist, married and father of one daughter.  Unlike his Democratic and Republican rivals, Goode is 100% Pro-Life, he has a voting record to prove it, and he has a perfect endorsement from the National Right to Life.  Goode also supports the Catholic Church's view on marriage as between one man and one woman. He opposes gay "marriages" and "civil unions."  He also opposes unnecessary international wars and wants to bring our troops home.  Goode is a Constitutionalist and unlike the Democrat and Republican candidates running for president this year, Goode actually believes in a strict constructionist interpretation of the Constitution, wherein the federal government should be reigned in to actually do what it says, and states should have more autonomy and control of their own affairs.  Based on Goode's rhetoric and voting record, it appears he supports the Catholic teaching on Subsidiarity.  Congressman Virgil Goode has been nominated to run for president of the United States in 2012 under the banner of THE CONSTITUTION PARTY.  If you would like to support Congressman Goode, his campaign website can be found here at:  Donations to his campaign can be made HERE.
