The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Vote early and often!

The 2007 Weblog Awards

There are still a couple days left to vote! If you click on the logo above, you can add your vote to the Weblog Awards — and maybe give the ol’ Deacon’s Bench a boost. Operators are standing by to tally your vote. If I win, I promise to mention you at the podium. (My wife is already shopping for a dress. Let’s not disappoint her, okay?)

You can also vote directly at this link.


You can vote once every 24 hours — a privilege of the blogosphere which is unheard of with things like the Oscars or the Electoral College. Is this a great system, or what?

And, look at it this way: with a high voter turnout (especially, um, for me), it will spare the blogosphere the drawn-out agony of a Supreme Court recount.

Thank you, and God bless America.

When the author of the article states”non Catholics cannot recieve the Eucharist until they recieve the sacrament”, what does she mean? To my knowledge you must be Catholic to recieve the Eucharist except, maybe, in very unusual circumstances.
