It is likely that most of my friends here have never heard of him or of Slackivist, his blog, but you will get an example of his writing, his wisdom and his fundamental decency, right here, as he discusses the victims of the lies the anti-gay-marriage people tell.
He is brilliant.
He is a Christian. As an atheist, I don't often get all fangirly about Christians but I do about this one. Read why.
Edit: That sounded a lot meaner than I meant it to. I have no problems with Christians--unless they pretend that Christianity means you have to ignore reality (I mean the earth 6000 old?) that it's okay to be an intolerant bigot. Most Christians aren't like that at all. I meant my point to be that Fred is not like that. He is so not that.
