Last week-end we had to turn off all our sponsored posts and deliver a special message to you. We let you know that our regular week-end request for help wasn’t working. We explained that we really do depend on your support each week-end to keep going and it’s the only way we’ve been able to dedicate the last 10 years of our lives to The Christian Left. We added that we work hard for this community during the week ‘commercial free.’ On the week-ends we ask for your assistance. You heard us loud and clear and responded to our need. We appreciate it.
(Update Early Evening, Saturday, 12-22-2018: Unfortunately the same thing is happening today. We know things are super busy for people with the holidays and all but please keep us in mind and do what you can. We'll be here to serve you every day, almost 24/7/365. That's been our track record for 10 years. Help us make it another trip around the sun. This is your national progressive Christian ministry! Donation link is at the bottom of this blog post.)
This link takes you to an overview of our history and our ongoing mission. If you have any questions please read that first.
Here’s a couple of examples of the kind of feedback we receive almost every day, “This page truly is a voice shouting from the wilderness. I was so depressed when I had to leave my evangelical Christian world behind. It had become something I no longer recognized and I couldn’t stay. My heart was filled with pure joy when I stumbled across The Christian Left on social media. I knew I had been led here by the Holy Spirit. You have no idea what a relief it was to discover there were hundreds of thousands of other people like me. Thank-you so much for everything you do! Know that you are appreciated from the bottom of this Christian’s heart!”
Another person said this, “Social media has been taken over by evil. This is the only page on the internet that fights back every day by policing trolls who show up to disrupt the community and getting rid of them promptly.”
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse for our country it gets worse. The past week has been a perfect example. We have a fake Attorney General who won’t recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller investigation; We’ve lost one of the few forces of stability left in the Trump administration with the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis; We’ve been given what is a truly scary picture of the President’s mind via the public resignation letter of Secretary Mattis; The President is announcing foreign policy by Tweet to the surprise of everyone around him including those at the Pentagon, who knew nothing of his sudden plans to pull out of Syria; General Kelly is out as White House Chief of Staff while a temporary Freedom Caucus sycophant, Mick Mulvaney fills in; As of yesterday portions of the government have been shut down in a silly standoff over the political stunt known as ‘the wall,’ which everyone but Trump’s base knows would be ineffective and a waste of taxpayer money; Those who are actually in charge at the White House increasingly seem to be the President, Jared and Ivanka. That’s terrifying because none of them has any experience or knows what they are doing.
If there’s one mission Trump seems dedicated to it’s crippling our government institutions and destroying our worldwide alliances. Putin couldn’t be happier with the actions of President Trump. It’s as if he put one of his agents in the Oval Office.
We’re going continue to be here every day with up-to-the hour coverage of politics and culture. Christian progressives and their allies finally have a place where they can gather, talk about the issues, and enjoy fellowship with one another without harassment from conservative “Christian” trolls. That’s a worthwhile thing.
When you see our requests for support on week-ends please contribute what you can. Those on a small, fixed income need not contribute. Your prayers will suffice. For those who can spare it, here’s how to make a donation. Even 5 bucks helps. Here's how: Click here.
