Warily Watching the Religious Right.
I don't comment but I do always read. Enjoy your time away.Bruce
Bruce -- Thanks. I really need to recharge right now, so thank you for understanding.
I've read your blog for a while. This is my first comment.Thank you for being you. There needs to be more like you, hopefully in your absence seeds of opportunity will sprout in the community you created. I know my mind has been expanded to see what I did not see before. Again, thank you.
Anonymous -- Thank you. It means a lot to me that you found the blog enlightening.
Sigh...I fear another comment failed to clear...
Sherry -- This was the only one that reached the moderation cue. I'm sorry you've been having trouble.
Enjoy your break. Will miss you though. Please come back soon. :)
Donna -- Thanks. I appreciate your visits to the blog all these years.
I'm not gonna lie, Ahab. Sometimes when I read your posts about the far right it blows my mind how hateful [and lots of other not very nice words] so many people can be. It must wear on you.And when you attend many of the RW events incognito … my god I don't know how you can put yourself through the torture. You are heroic and one of the big reasons why I have any faith in humanity. Thank you for that.Happy recharging, Ahab. Here's wishing you lots of peace, good food, fine wine, and tasty home-brewed beer. : )
Agi Tater -- I've appreciated your support of the blog all these years, and your kind words really do mean a lot to me. I'm very proud of the blog, but it's been wearing on me for a few months, and I just need some recharge time. Thanks for the kind wishes!
Enjoy the break. :)
Christian -- I will. Thanks!
I have really appreciated your blog. Its been eye opening. Thank you for your work- enjoy your time away- and know that there will be a happy dance if/when you come back.
thegirlwh0wasthursday -- Thank you. I'm glad that it proved eye-opening.
Hope you'll be back! You always post good stuff here. :)
Knatolee -- Thanks!
I shall miss reading you. You are a unique and much needed voice, but I totally understand blogger burnout. Have had a case of it myself lately. Sometimes you just need time to go outside and smell the roses :-) Enjoy your time away and I hope you do come back eventually.... I find I have started to post again, now and then and with now sense of pressure. It's kinda nice.
Roberta -- I'm pleased that I made an impression, so thank you for your praise.
We always end up on the same sites:-)
You will be missed, but I totally understand. I've been an absentee moderator for much of this year, so I get it.Enjoy your time off!CA
Christian Agnostic -- Thanks. It's nice to take a breather.
(((Hugs))). Take care.
Zoe -- Thank you for the hug!
I don't always comment and, because of my schedule, sometimes I'm late to the party. I do eventually get around to reading, though and your blog has been and continues to be a valuable tool in keeping up with what's happening in fundamentalism.Having said that, there's only so much of that a person can subject themselves to before they need a break. Enjoy it! I look forward to your return.
Ruth -- I'm glad that I was able to inform. Thank you for seeing my blog as a good tool.
Missing your posts, but glad you're taking care of yourself. You are an intelligent, thoughtful, articulate voice, and so fair and respectful, even to the subjects of your critiques. You give credit where it is due. All of this together makes you, Ahab, an internet rarity!
Michelle -- I'm flattered that you think so highly of the blog. Thank you!
Late to the party again, but thanks for keeping me informed all this time. I really appreciate all you do.
Jono -- Thank you. Your appreciation is very sweet.
