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.

Tim: Amateur Catholic

My name is Tim and I'm the perpetrator of a blog called the Lapped Catholic. I was actually hoping to be accepted into the Society of Catholic Dilettantes or possibly to join Graham Greene's Foreign Legion of the Church but if you'll have me I'd be happy to join the B-Team. Here are the top ten reasons I should be admitted to the ranks:
  1. I once sported a Mohawk (like an amateur Mr. T)
  2. I now sport a natural tonsure (like an amateur Franciscan)
  3. I used to think Vatican II was the airplane the Vice Pope flew in
  4. I can get you deep discounts on "The Pope Has A Posse" t-shirts (
  5. I've got mad web graphic skillz I could use in support of the B-Team
  6. I'm not averse to bribing you with hand-made knotted rosaries
  7. I'm a little fuzzy on whether the above mentioned bribery constitutes simony
  8. Kneeling causes extreme pain in my knees so there's no way I could ever go pro
  9. I have yet to find a niche with my blog but I'm hoping when I do it's doesn't require crossing a river of fire.
  10. If you don't have a bad blogger in your ranks how will anyone know how good you guys are?
There are also ten reasons why I shouldn't be picked for the B-Team but my keyboard is running low on letters so I'll have to get back to you later with thos
I am a sucker for a Top Ten List ... and the deep discounts on T-shirts don't hurt either! C'mon in outta the rain Tim ... welcome to the B-Team.
