Thank you. Just … thank you.

You people are amazing. Thank you so much.

I was away from the computer for much of today and returned to be overwhelmed and overcome by your generosity.

I was also working on the next post here, but since it’s about porpoise-costume sex and the Golden Rule, I’ll let that wait until the morning and just say here the two inadequate words that need to be said: Thank you.

  • Brantley

    You’re welcome, Fred ! Some of us evangelical holdout readers find inspiration here: 

    1 Timothy 5:17-18, “Let the elders who rule well be
    counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and
    doctrine. For the Scripture says, ‘You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads
    out the grain,’ and ‘the laborer is worthy
    of his wages.”

    And just to clarify: when I donated, PayPal indicated it sent the payment to “George” Clark–that’s okay?

  • GDwarf

    I see someone reads SMBC. :P

  • Morilore

    Thank you for the great reads.

    porpoise-costume sex and the Golden Rule

    …well, that’s what you call a hook.

  • PJ Evans

     That’s where it went the last time I donated, so it’s okay with me.

    Fred Clark = George Alfred Clark, if I recall correctly.

  • Kirala

     Waitwaitwait. Does that mean that our Fred is both Fred AND George? Are we talking Weasley amazingness here?

  • LoneWolf343

     What a cock-tease (pun-intended.)

  • Will Hennessy

    No, Fred. Thank YOU.

  • Vardulon

    You’re welcome.

  • Brantley

    Got it–thanks.

    What do you mean, you people? 

    I kid – you’re very welcome, George.

  • Parhelion

    Believe you me, it’s our pleasure.

    All the best.

    Wish I’d been able to be a part of that.

    Thank you for this post. I read almost exclusively via RSS and had been thinking for quite some time that you deserved some consideration. Now I’ve found how to provide same. Thanks a bunch. 

  • Dash1

    Wait … what? Back up a minute…

    You’ve been inspiring liberal Christians and evangelicals (and people who are both) to think carefully about their theology; you’ve defended true evangelicalism against those who have hijacked it for their own purposes; you’ve explained the basis of evangelical thinking in a way that makes sense; you’ve kept more than a few people, if I read the comments correctly, from giving up on Christianity altogether; you’ve certainly kept some non-Christians and non-theists from regarding Christianity with complete disgust; you’ve brought many instances of injustice and of heroic responses to same to your readers’ attention; and, importantly, you’ve heroically and thrown yourself between us and the bad writing and worse theology of the LaHaye-Jenkins pre-millenial-dispensationalist beast. (Also, you’ve introduced some of us to a whole bunch of new music. Alphabetically.)

    And you think we’re amazing?

    Hardly, sir. Hardly.  

  • Dash1

     You were, chris the cynic. I have enjoyed your writing so much that I added a bit extra, thinking specifically of you.

  • Sgt. Pepper’s Bleeding Heart

    Very well said Dash!

  • Elizabby

    Sorry so late! Only just seen your posts from the last few days, but I believe “better late than never” applies in this case…

    I couldn’t chip in (summers are tight for adjuncts), but I want to thank you, Fred, for two things. 1) you added me to your blog roll, which means someone in the Clark family is reading comments and clicking through links, which is very cool. And 2) the alt text for my link says “Mike visits the library. A lot.” which means that someone in the Clark family actually looked at my blog and got what I’m doing. Which is also cool. All that, plus what Dash says – Thanks doesn’t really cover it.
