To everyone who supported the project so far, I appreciate your understanding. I hope you’ll support whatever I decide to do next.

We know Christianity is a big tent. There are super-conservative Christians as well as very progressive ones (who are in many ways more closely aligned with atheists than the Tony Perkins types).
