Exhibit A Coffeebean's comment over at Far Above Rubies
I cannot imagine how the husbands and children of these women must feel, because there is no way they can keep up with what they are doing and still have time to mothering their children appropriately.
To be fair, Coffeebean has little children. My youngest is 2 but the others are 8,9,12, 15 and 18. So a lot of the discussions that I have on this blog and elsewhere end up as part of our discussions. I often wondered how I was going to teach my kids how to defend and talk about their Catholic faith and now it seems that my experiences provide the material I need to pass on to them.
They stalk Candy's blog for comments, then follow those comments and stalk those blogs....several visits in one single day. Mind boggling. That's one thing about computer involvement. You put yourself out there and people can see just how much time you are spending on the computer. You cannot be living what you are preaching if you have endless amount of activity that prove you are indeed in front of the computer.
I guess this is a problem if you have dial up or have to hunt and peck at the keyboard. That's not the case for me and from discussions I have had from other serious bloggers, it's not a problem for them either.
I've also said this before, if a link is left on a blog, the assumption is that the blogger WELCOMES VISITS! If you don't want people coming to your blog, take the link out of your comments. It's that easy.
I totally agree with you on the Catholic church, but what makes me laugh is the assumption of these ladies that our sole source of information about these things comes from Candy. I do know how to read and am quite fond of books. So to assume that I take something as Gospel truth because of one blog out there is nonsense. While I do agree with Candy and love her articles, I don't hold in a higher regard than anyone else :)
Well, Coffeebean did get the Inquisition, Crusades and the missionaries all confused, so I think the jury is still out on that.
Sorry you've had to deal with the minions too. I pray that they will get back under the covering of their husbands and stop this catholic evangelism crusade they are on. They are making down right fools of themselves and people are noticing....
My husband helps me look for supporting material. He picks my brain for information for his Sunday School class and he is totally supportive. He will also send me e-mails from the shop when I have written something he particularly enjoys. He is 100% supportive.
But Coffeebean is correct. We are getting noticed! We now have a 2 Google page rank, we figure pretty high on the search engines and we have gotten a lot of supportive comments.
