Moving on Up

If you want to do me a favor, then vote for me in this poll - "Who is the Best Catholic Speaker of 2009". I am currently in 15th place.

Thanks to everyone who has already voted.

I cannot abide exploiting the propensity of Aggie Catholics to use the web as a mechanism to propel you past the likes of Fr. Mitch, Tim Staples, and Ray Guarendi, to name a few.

No fair stacking the deck. Now excuse me while I vote for Fr. Barron a few more times.

Hey - you only get to vote once!

I voted for 9 others as well. But, most others in the top 25 don't need the publicity like I do.

So....I voted, for you, and after reading the list, I know only 7 or 8 names on the list. I will say that you are my favorite, you speak with an enthusiasm that is undeniable; and that you speak on a plethora of subjects with great knowledge and insight. So without kissing too much rear, I will stop. We Aggies are proud to have you around these parts.

Ahh. It appears that large sample properties are finally starting to kick in. Even so, you are holding a respectable position. Well done talk-boy.

There should be sub-categories. You'd win "Most Likely to Use an Inspirational Expletive."

Now, back to voting for Fr. Barron.

"[T]hey have followed the way of Balaam...rebuked for his own transgression; a dumb ass spoke with human voice and restrained the prophet's madness."

Keith, if I didn't know the context of the quote you give (Jude) then I would have to dis-invite you to dinner. :-p

Here is what Jude says in response:
"But these people revile what they do not understand and are destroyed by what they know by nature like irrational animals."
