    Congratulations Edward! Having been there myself, I know the emotional rollercoaster you’ve been on and the feeling of elation when you realize you’ve won the battle. Keep on keeping on with all of the many things you enjoy and again, congratulations!

    Great news!  There is something about Ed Tarte that is so genuine and humane.  In his own understated way, he presents a kind, yet still uncompromising, face of humanism.

  • I’m very glad to hear this, Edward, and I wish you well. You are a gift to all of us.

  • Edward. Tarte. Is. Awesome.
    Long before there was a “clergy project”, there was Edward Tarte, a former Catholic priest in the 1960’s, now an atheist making YouTube videos.
    Absolutely one of my favorite YouTubers.
    Calm. No spin. Makes his points clearly and convincingly but without  ever being antagonistic or rude.
    Great to hear that his health is doing well.
