One of the benefits to writing on an all-inclusive site about religion like Patheos is that I’m surrounded by several really incredible bloggers. The downside is that some of them say things that are craaaaaaaazy.
Speaking about the Christian missionaries who contracted Ebola, Gene Veith (also a professor at Patrick Henry College) says that they’re doing incredible work.

Frustrated Christian May Not Pick Up Roadside Trash Anymore Because Atheist Group Adopted That Stretch of Land
The Tallahassee Atheists recently “adopted” a nearly-two-mile stretch of road in Leon County, volunteering to periodically clean it up. It’s just a great community service project.
