Something smells

Terry of the Abbey Roads 2 blog smells a rat. I think I smell the same rodent. Most of the professional lay Catholics (converts or cradle) give me the creeps. I don't feel comfortable with a layperson hawking their books and CDs and acting as thought they are a voice of church authority.

While not necessarily disagreeing with your point, I think that part of the explanation for this phenomenon is that laity are trying to fill the void left by (some) priests and bishops in educating Catholics.

You're right. There has been a tragic void. But the Sheas and Akins and Madrids give me great pause.
