To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity. Douglas Adams
What is Patheos?
According to Wikipedia:
Patheos is a non-denominational, non-partisan online media company providing information and commentary from various religious and nonreligious perspectives.
Upon its launch in May 2009, the website was primarily geared toward learning about religions through a reference library and other peer-reviewed resources on 27 global religions and worldviews. In its current form, the site also hosts more than 450 blogs in eleven “Faith Channels,” offering commentary and news from these perspectives in topics including politics, institutions, culture, sacred texts, history, lifestyle, entertainment, family life, and business. Patheos is the largest English language religion and spirituality site in the world, while the Catholic, Progressive Christian, Nonreligious, and Pagan Channels constitute the largest web presence for their respective traditions.
Patheos removed Warraen Throckorton’s blog for not meeting their strategic objectives.
There you will find three posts which deal with this disturbing development.
So, what group pressured Patheos? Warren Throckmorton was one of the most thoughtful individuals on Patheos. This ridiculous excuse of strategic objective is dismaying. Patheos wanted Mark Driscoll, who hurt many people yet got rid of Throckmorton who has helped inform lots of people? Good night!
In my opinion, this is all about the almighty buck and Patheos is not what it claims to be.
