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.

Paul Smith: Amateur Catholic

My name is Paul Smith and I'm a computer programmer from Wilmington, Delaware. Although I'm a cradle Catholic, it's just in the past few years I've started taking my faith seriously. I blog at and I discuss whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. (Catholicism, baseball, politics, history, the TV series NewsRadio, etc.) I'm single and fairly private so nothing personal ends up being posted other than vague references to past troubles in my life.

I'm active in my parish (Adult Education Committee, Head Usher, Liturgy Committee, Lifter of Heavy Objects when the Church needs Decorating) and organize a lot of the Diocesan Young Adult activities.

Honestly, the number one reason I blog is to I can avoid annoying my coworkers. If I vent online, I don't vent to them.


--Paul Smith
A considerate venter ... excellent! There's always room for one more of those on the B-Team. Welcome aboard, Paul!

Count me in!
I just took my theology midterm and if that doesn't make one feel like Team C, nothing will. It was BRUTAL, but I was able to get all the heresies straight and define the meanings of 10 bible passages.

My blog is my way to feel like I actually know something although I probably don't know a thing.

While I am employed by the Catholic Church, being a freshman theology major should be plenty of evidence of my amateur status.

Btw, I got a 100 on my midterm. Oops, probably shouldn't have told you that.
PLease cont me in anyway.

But Brian, which team do you root for? (The Padres? The Angels? The ..... CARDINALS?)
