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.

Curmudgeon: Amateur Catholic

Hey kids!

I'm finally applying to the B-Team. Here's my blog--a few of your charter members--fellow Evil Traditionalists--know me already. I'm such an amateur that I didn't respond to the invitation when it was first presented long, long ago. I'm such an amatuer that I don't know how to use spell-check in blogspot. I'm amateur enought that I haven't updated my blogroll in months. And I'm also amateur enough that I don't have any worries about taking potshots at the professional Catholics, clerical or lay, or even the sacred Wanderer.

I've been waiting to apply to the B-Team, because I was sure God was going to send me the right powerball numbers and then I could quit my job and I wouldn't be an amateur Catholic any more (or at least I wouldn't have to remain anonymous anymore) That hasn't happened. It must mean that Our Lord wants me on the B-Team.

Am I good enough, am I smart enough, do you love me?

a/k/a Krusty
a/k/a Darth Cantankerous
a/k/a Fred (although this nickname was given by a professional Catholic, of sorts, so it's inappropriate to use here)
I know how you feel. You can't imagine how many times I suggested to my special patrons, St Joseph and St. Therese that winning the lottery would be a great way to answer my prayers, but alas, apparently they're still not too fond of me. ;)

Hopefully, when your patrons come through for you, you'll still remain a B-Teamer in spirit. Welcome to the B-Team.
