Readers Poll

After much thought I'm launching a Readers Poll to assist me in what I choose to write about (and I'm generally interested).

Free polls from Pollhost.com

What is your Mass preference?
Charasmatic Tridentine Rite (includes Dominican Rite)
Novus Ordo -- Ad orientem in latin
Novus Ordo -- Ad orientem in the vernacular (English)
A "normal" everyday parish Mass
Another Christian service
I don't attend anything

Free polls from Pollhost.com

Why do you read Indolent Server? (can select multiple answers)
Because I know the author I like the Speck cartoons
I like the posts on the mass of the day
I'm interested in knowing what young Catholics get up to
This is my first visit
Other

Free polls from Pollhost.com

Thankyou for your time. Feel free to add suggestions, comments and abuse.

Disclaimer: I probably won't take any of this into account when posting, but thanks anyway! I've never been one to bow to public opinion. If the poll is well recieved I may continue with more and publish the results.

You know what... I have trouble with the idea of "Mass Preference" I voted on the others but can't vote on this one...hard to explain why... I'll have to think about it and then I'll let you know!

I knew that one would cause some trouble. It's not neccessarily the Mass you attend daily or weekly. Just go for one!

Miss Monification said...

You know Aaron, its not even that, that is my problem... it's just the whole idea of the question...I've been hearing it in various forms a lot lately and I'm really not comfortable with it... I'll rant about it on my blog for you!

The question itself doesn't really bother me. I have no problem talking to people about my beliefs. My problem is that it goes directly from "another Christian service" to "I don't attend anything." Please remember that there are other faiths and beliefs out there and by setting up your question the way you did, you automatically exclude people. For example, what should someone who is Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist select? For example, I'm a pagan but you would have me say that "I don't attend anything." I do not want to sound disrespectful here, but I would ask to think beyond simply one point of view.

Valid point. But the owner of this blog is a rather traditional Catholic and few posts are to do with anything else. Thus the view was that only Catholics read the blog at all. You have proved me wrong for which I am grateful.

But you should check out Mass sometime. It's really good for you.

Seems like from the last question that the boys really love your blog-what can I say!

aaron said...

Don't get ahead of yourself brother. There will be sufficent time for analysis.

Anyway, there are few girls in the world who admit to loving/understanding liturgy. Many girls have bluntly told me that knowing liturgy is a "man's thing".

I am dissapointed. I wonder if any of the girls are my age and single?

Miss Monification said...

Lol! Well I'm not your age, but there is a girl who reads your blog who is 21. She is from British Columbia in Canada ... however, she might not be single.

Litergy? A "man thing?" Well, that's settled then, I'm a man! ;)

Thanks Miss Monification!

The comments about liturgy BTW are coming from many girls I know... not from me! I disagree, many of my female friends understand and love the liturgy.

Miss Monification said...

Lol I know you aren't the one saying those things! Some girls just have no idea!
