So long, everybody
DU is no place for me anymore. I'm on a hunt for sites that offer reasoned, balanced discussion on a variety of issues, not just Catholicism, and I've already found a few.

Best of luck to you, personally and spiritually.

1. If you know of any intelligent, liberal sites that are friendly to the religious left, let us know
When I go to "liberal" sites I am inundated by the nasty conceit and arrogance of the anti-religion crowd.

When I go to Catholic sites I am inundated by the right-wing narrow-minded "more Catholic than the pope" jihadists.

Both of them make me sick - if you find somewhere that would be a safe haven for those of us who are both liberal AND spiritual, that would be incredible.

Best of luck to you in your journeys.

2. I agree with WildEyedLiberal
WildEyedLiberal, I wholeheartedly agree with you. It's also refreshing for me as an Orthodox Christian to find a group where the words Catholic and Orthodox go together. I am quite Catholic-friendly, as there are plenty of Catholics in my area and quite a few mixed Orthodox-Catholic families in my church, so I have no patience for (narrow-minded and hostile) anti-Catholic Orthodox believers and vice versa.

3. +1000
I'm transitioning from the Episcopal to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Church, and the anti liberal anti episcopalian mess gets grating at my new church. Just looking for a friendly place.

6. Sorry to see you go.

But I understand your need to move on.

On edit: Within the past few weeks I've seriously considered giving up DU entirely myself, but I like a great many people here, and of course the Classic Film Group keeps me sane.
