The Deacon's Bench

This piece in NCR about Catholic blogs was pretty interesting, until I started counting the embarrassing mistakes. (Memo to Amy Welborn: call your lawyer).

But James Martin sums up the Catholic blogosphere succinctly:

“At their best, Catholic blogs serve the same function as do the entry halls that are part of new church buildings in this country: as a place to learn about church news, discuss the issues of the day, and get to know one’s fellow Catholics. At their worst, some Catholic blogs are a place to trade mean-spirited insults about Catholics with whom the bloggers disagree. Some of the more vituperative blogs seem barely Christian, let alone Catholic.”
