    Well darn, that’s what I meant. Thought you might like a preview. You can just file it for now.

    Thanks. ; )

    #1 I’d like to nominate Bonnie Atkinson in the category of, Best personal post I don’t know, it is a well written article but here you are using an inclusive blog to promote an article published in an “faithful” blog that openly excludes.

    In response to that article I wrote: Bonnie declares; We aren’t ready. while others seem to believe we are. I guess it comes down to the faithfully waiting and the faithfully agitating! Is there room for both on the same pew? I pray there is. but my comment was placed in moderation and remains there as of this post.

    Perhaps it should be nominated for Best personal post on an exclusively faithful blog.

    I appreciate my recent piece “Are We Paying Too Much Tithing?” being entered in the nominations, but for “Funniest Thread”?

    I don’t think it belongs in the funniest category. Would anyone like to place it in nomination somewhere else?

    (I am, of course, too modest to nominate one of my own blog entries myself. Although, all modesty aside, at over 32,000 hits, that tithing piece garnered more readers than anything else I’ve ever written. So I kinda liked it.

    As I recall, weren’t you the one that said there were weird comments? Perhaps you could link to some of the odd comments in the Tarefic category?

    It could fit under historical or doctrinal post I think. It was an interesting read, following the link. I didn’t read all the comments though. Wasn’t this guy the commenter referred to: Biggest Cray-Cray Lunatic Commenter Who Isn’t a Troll: Weston Krogstadt Rules!
    Seems to be in under write-in catergory, rather than any specific comment.

    Can I nominate ‘worlds without end’ for the best blog layout (it’s the best I’ve seen for mobile at any rate).

    #5 Howard,
    I think we need both on the same pew. The agitators point out the problems and hopefully bring them to the attention of the higher ups, whilst the ‘waiters’ ensure it doesn’t come to an all-out revolution.

    Of course, the longer the wait, without any acknowledgement that some people have an issue, some of those waiters may in due course become agitators.
