Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Ed Pie: Amateur Catholic

Greetings, Citizen!

I submit myself for your ratification. I started blogging in November
of aught-five because it seemed artistically incorrect for there not to
be an official "dirty papist" in the blogosphere.

I aspire to be a professional amateur, but it's more of a pipe dream
than a practical goal, at least for now.

My original intent was to be ironic and somewhere between pithy and
incisive, but since I'm usually motivated to write by secular
postmodern and anti-Catholic silliness, it usually comes out as (and
here I'm being generous with myself to no small degree) rocky cultural

Oh, there's also some directly spiritual and otherwise Catholic stuff,
too. I'm trying to ramp up the ratio of material that's edifying, or
at least instructive, to that which is just critical and angry.

May it please you, find me at Honest, I'm
mostly harmless.
I can't think of a more heatening thing than the words dirty papist being muttered through clenched teeth in my direction. A badge of honor, it is. Welcome to the B-Team, Ed. Don't forget to grab your badge code and put it up. ;)
