Thanks to the sharp eye of Jeff Milner over at Our Thoughts, I found out that VivaNedFlanders was mentioned, inexplicably, in this Google Current clip. For those of you who don't want to watch all three minutes of the video, they basically talk about various things that are popular searches on Google, like Simpsons references. Then they highlight a site where you can shoot Ned Flanders and his family. From that, they segue to:
But Flanders gets his share of love too, especially from Christians. For instance, VivaNedFlanders is the name of a Mormon blog with some very un-Ned-like postings.
I think the orthodox Bloggernacle, at least, will be relieved to find out the Google considers Mormons to be Christian. Onward Nedward Soldiers!

I guess I need to ammend my nightly prayers to the following:

Holy, holy Ned; we believe that thou art Ned, and we believe that thou art holy, and that thou wast a blogger, and that thou art a blogger, and that thou wilt be a blogger forever.
Holy Ned, we believe that thou hast separated us from our non-Googled brethren; and we do not believe in the tradition of our non-Googled brethren, which was handed down to them by the childishness of their fathers; but we believe that thou hast elected us to be thy holy blog children; and also thou hast made it known unto us that there shall be no other Ned Flanders.

Brian, you forgot "you shall have no other Neds before me."

Thanks, guys. I don't think anyone actually watches Google Current, but it's still kind of surreal to be quoted like that.
