1. Despite my ambivalence about Thanksgiving—having to spend it surrounded only by evangelicals invested in the white supremacist mythology of it has me on edge—I do have a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful to my parents for housing me during a career transition.
2. I’m thankful for good friends and supportive communities, on and offline. I’m grateful for opportunities to work with people and groups like @aejohnsonphd, @ircrc, @CHShumanists. And for my editors and being able to break into new outlets this year, including @ForeignPolicy.
3. I’m also immensely grateful to all of you who have chosen to support my work via @PayPal or @Patreon. That so many of you believe in me enough to help me get financially established as a writer, speaker, and activist means a lot.

4. I’m also thankful for the tireless activism so many people have engaged in to oppose Trump and bring us the #BlueWave. We’re not out of the woods, but having a Democratic House going ahead is a relief. Thank you, #TheResistance.

5. Finally, I’m thankful for the #Exvangelical community—for the emotional support, the new friends and connections, and the progress changing the national conversation. Thanks to our friends in journalism @ninaburleigh @lizkineke @sarahposner @rklein90 @PaulHRosenberg. ❤️❤️
6. Shout-outs of gratitude to scholars, researchers, and commentators who are invaluable in exposing the Right as well: @AntheaButler @brucewilson @profagagne @crddouglas @AngryBlackLady @JosieMcskimming @JoshuaGrubbsPhD @julieingersoll @coleparke @patti_miller and many more.
I just noticed the wrong link in the tweet above. Doh!
Meant to link this.
Correction. Tweet 3 above was supposed to contain this link, not a link to one of my own angry-ish tweets from earlier today, lol
