If you’re looking for the Unfundamentalist Christians blog, you’ve found it. We moved our blog here–archives and all–from its location on Patheos.com, where it was launched in the summer of 2013. Why the move? Mainly because we (along with, we know, so many of you) finally got fed up with all the ads, cookie downloads, and random emails from bottom-feeder advertisers automatically sent out to anyone who subscribes to a Patheos newsletter.
We understand Patheos’s desire to make money, of course. And we certainly appreciate that Patheos actually pays its bloggers, which so few sites do. For a blog such as ours, which does a lot of traffic, that monthly paycheck definitely helps. But ultimately we felt that we couldn’t in good conscience remain on a site so overwhelmed with ads.
So here we are, in a whole new place. And we’ve got a whole new name, too! We’ve changed our name from Unfundamentalist Christians to simply Unfundamentalist.
We did that because we want to extend the conversation we’re engaged in beyond the echo-chamber that has become the online world of “progressive” Christianity. We’re not in the slightest denying that we’re Christian; the document upon which this group was founded will not change. But we now want to emphasize that it’s time for the Christianity which we (frankly) have done so much to define and defend to move into that great big world which exists beyond those concerns exclusive to Christians and the Christian church.
