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.

phatcatholic: Amateur Catholic

To the Amateur Catholic It May Concern,

I am requesting membership as a "Professional Amateur." I've been doing pro-bono apologetics online for 3 years now. It would actually kinda freak me out if I ever got paid for what I do. I am the Apologetics Director for, which gets about 6 million hits a week, and is currently the #31-most visited website in the "Catholicism" category at (Yea, as an Amateur, it is critical to piggy-back off of the success of others). I'm an admin for the "Fuzzy Bunny Crusade" (the word "Crusade" doesn't sound so harsh when you attach a fuzzy bunny to it). The FBC is basically a training ground for amateurs, where they can be in a group and practice apologetics on various protestant forums. I also have an apologetics blog, phatcatholic apologetics, where I post my debates against protestant amateurs (yea, protestants have amateurs too), as well as my amateur tracts, papers, and answers to questions amateurs have asked me about Catholicism throughout the years.

Ultimately, I try to as professional of an amateur as I can possibly be. I would be honored to be included in your amateur takover of the blogosphere.

Pax Christi,
phatcatholic (I'm too much of an amateur to capitalize my screenname)

...the word "Crusade" doesn't sound so harsh when you attach a fuzzy bunny to it...

I don't know about that... Watch this:

Oh, and welcome to the B-Team! Don't forget to add your badge.

This movie has the only two times I can think of when I laugh when Christ's name is taken in vain. It's just the tone of his voice when he says it that cracks me up.

Should I confess that?

Haha, I'm over here thinking, "Maaan, when are they gonna get back to me about this B-team thing? Gaw-lee, what amateurs." I never thought to check your blog again....

Thanks for the B-team love,
