An encomium for us 7

We have been strongly complimented by a comment on our Facebook page by Fidd Chewley.

(Visit his website Atheist Nexus, “The World’s Largest Coalition of Nontheists and Nontheist Communities” here.*)

We like it so much that we are reproducing it here on the front page of our website.

Where’s the button I click to automatically “like” all your future posts?

I follow a handful of conservative atheist pages, and you stand out from the rest as one who posts much more often about the conservative viewpoint than general atheism. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the posts others make regarding atheism, they don’t do much to distinguish themselves from each other. I also enjoy your no-BS, condensed presentation, cutting to the chase, unapologetic, and always sharp. Your posts always hit hard without resorting to cheap kookery. There are no “glancing blows”, and your precision and consistency are metronomic. A+, 10/10!!

This is the type of page that could foster the recognition of atheism into the greater conservative movement, which has been ostensively claimed by theists. There is a great potential for synergy between politically-like theists and atheists demonstrated here that could actually help end the notion that belief in a god is a staple of American patriotism. This is the cutting-edge of the future of the movement in an increasingly atheistic America.

Thank you, Fidd!


*We would point out – perhaps unnecessarily –  that we do not share Fidd’s opinions on all issues, but we’re in full agreement with him that we’re doing a good job.

    Congratulations on the praise, Jillian! I completely agree with him that the content of your writings represent a consistent conservative viewpoint while still paying no apologies to any religions. I wish I had the time and focus to write more on this site, but I remain a loyal reader.

    While I’m here, I hope you plan to celebrate the 4th annual Everybody Draw Muhammad Day this May 20th! If you are, I’ll contribute something.

    Lastly, I’m sorry to hear about the loss of George. He was an excellent comment writer whose wisdom I greatly enjoyed.


    Yes, congratulations are definitely in order, Jillian! To me, this site is like a long, cold drink of gatorade in the desert!

    You do an excellent job!

    Couldn’t agree more! I’m still totally perplexed at how such an excellent site could remain relatively obscure for this long – the recognition on Facebook is very encouraging! As Mr. C. says, this is the future of the movement.

    Congrats Jillian!!! Your hard work, intellect and experience are being recognized and rewarded!!!

      We also have the reward of the tremendous support and stimulating debates with many points of view given generously by our regular readers, notably you, and liz, and Frank, and Azgael, and Real Being and more – can’t list them all here, but they know who they are, and they are all included in our appreciation. We still remember George, who was a great contributor, and whose loss we mourn.

      Thanks, liz. Whatever good effect we have, it’s because we have your help.
