I think Flannery O'Connor is over rated.

"There's many a blog that could have been prevented by a good teacher." - Flannery O'Connor

Yeah.  Well.  No one cares.



  1. Same with G.K. Chesterton.

    1. You too? I thought I was the only other person to think that!

    2. G.K. is overrated.

      If Flannery O'Connor never said or wrote anything more than her defense of the Eucharist to a patronizing Mary McCarthy, she couldn't be overrated --

      "I then said, in a very shaky voice, “Well, if it’s a symbol, to hell with it.” That was all the defense I was capable of but I realize now that this is all I will ever be able to say about it, outside of a story, except that it is the center of existence for me; all the rest of life is expendable."

  2. Oh man. I was virtually disemboweled a few years ago for mocking the Chestercult on First Things. I still have scars.
