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.

The Piuses: Amateur Catholics

Membership Committee,

We, the Popes Pius of, request to be
enrolled as Amateur Catholics. The details of our site is as follows:
"Those popes who bear the name, 'Pius,' are the greatest guardians of
the Church against heresy. This blog is a watchdog for modernism in
the Church. In reality, outside this blog, the members of the board
temper their criticisms and opinions with prudence and charity so as
to help souls in their journey towards Christ. But sometimes, for the
sake of their own sanity, the authors of this blog just need to blow
off some steam. The result is Totus Pius."

We also request to be enrolled as Professional Amateurs. The reason
we deserve this honor is simple: We like to excommunicate and
anathematize people. Should you refuse the humble request of five
great patriarchs of the Church, we will be forced to excommunicate
you. If the idea of begging in snow for three days is not appealing
to you, we strongly recommend that you honor our request.

Apostolic blessings,
The Popes Pius
(Pius V, Pius IX, Pius X, Pius XII and our resident anti-pope Pius XIII)
Funny stuff. Who am I to dis a Pius, let alone four of them? Welcome to the B-Team your holinesses!
