The Great Kneeling Debate

As always, I. Shawn McElhinney of Rerum Novarum and your humble SecretAgentMan are ahead of the curve on the debate over kneeling during communion. As I. Shawn McElhinney prepares his rolling barrage, it's interesting to note that other bloggers have taken up the keyboard in the Great Kneeling Debate. Among them are the esteemed Amy Welborn, The Contrarian, and E.L. Core. In case anyone is interested, here's a table of contents for my own sparring match with I. Shawn McElhinney on the subject:

As noted above, Round III is yet to begin; we're awaiting Shawn's "rolling barrage." For what it's worth, here are some miscellaneous, additional blogs by me on the subject:
