Top Ten Reasons to Give to RD

We were tempted to give this post a grabby headline, something like “Celebrity Religion Tattoos” or “World’s Fluffiest Kitten,” but we remembered that you, our reader, don’t come to RD for celebs and animal babies. (Although if you do, please let us know. We can absolutely make it happen.)

Instead we’re just asking for your support. A quick click HERE and your tax-deductible donation will help fund another year of writing, editing, coding, and reporting.

A click on the Facebook “Like” button above will work wonders too!

 

Top Ten Reasons to Support RD

#10:  3/4 of Americans give to religion itself, but not to journalism that focuses on religion.

#9:  You still read books, even though they are the ultimate in “longform”.

#8:  The world is actually NOT about to end and you would like something to read in the meantime.

#7:  Sarah Posner, Joanna Brooks, Haroon Moghul, Candace Chellew-Hodge, Anthea Butler, Jay Michaelson—and so many more fine and thoughtful writers.

#6:  You are interested in sex…and sexualit(ies), and gender, and religion and social justice.

#5:  You might want to be pope some day and you’re interested in how Francis has won such huge popular appeal.

#4:  Unfortunately, there is no Santa Claus.

#3:  It’s a vast universe and there’s surely a God out there somewhere.

#2:  It’s a vast, utterly empty universe, except for this big, life-filled world.

#1:  RD depends on its readers.

Your $5, $10, $20, or $100 gift—or a quick “like” to pass this on to friends—will allow us to keep bringing religion news and comment, RD-style, to your inbox every day.

Gratefully yours,

The RD editors
