Friends and Supporters of The Christian Left


(Note): A few people already make a monthly contribution through Paypal. There is no need to modify that. We added this service by 'Donorbox' so new contributors have the opportunity to use expanded methods beyond just Paypal. Many have requested this throughout the years. As always, we very much appreciate your sustaining contribution. You are the only reason we've been able to keep our mission alive for over a decade. 


This secure and easy form allows for contributions via PayPal, Credit Cards, or Bank Transfers. We never have access to any of your financial information. We've accepted contributions for well over a decade with no problems or issues with security.




The Christian Left is an online ministry and community for Christian progressives and their allies. It’s a place to gather any time of day, 7 days a week, no matter where you live. We put the words and actions of Jesus front and center in everything we do.


Tens of thousands of people have told us over the years that TCL is a literal lifeline for them. Several LGBTQIA+ folks have said they were entertaining suicide until they found TCL. We were one of the first national Christian ministries to fully support marriage equality. That's just the beginning of our story. One of the things we hear almost every day is some variation of: "Finally! A place for me!"


The Christian Left is a place where members can discuss current events, news of the day, culture, politics, philosophy, theology, music, and anything else worthy of discussion. All discussion takes place on the backdrop of the life of Jesus and his teachings. It’s a place where members won’t be harassed by conservative “Christians,” Republicans, or naysayers of any kind. It’s a haven. 


Anyone can be a member. All we ask is that people join us if they want to be a part of what we have to offer, not to debate with us, insult us, or try to convince us of their point of view. We are not a debate society.


The founding members of The Christian Left take part in political action. They have traveled all over the country to participate in gatherings and events where political action is taking place. As an organization we'll be increasing this kind of action in 2020. It's a pivotal year for the future of our nation. 


How many Christian organizations do you know of these days advocating for progressive policy? There aren't many and we were one of the first in the era of social media having launched in 2009.


Like you, we understand that modern conservative policy has turned its back on all who need any kind of help from society, those that Jesus called ‘the least of these.’ Our modern economic system has become the 'law of the jungle.' Only the richest, strongest and smartest receive help. "The rest are just lazy freeloaders who deserve what they get, which is nothing." That's how conservative ideology views it whether its followers realize it or not, and it's the opposite of everything Jesus ever said. 


It’s a mystery to us why 80% of white evangelicals vote Republican. It makes no sense, unless you factor in the amount of money conservative groups have spent on messaging aimed at the church.


A counter-narrative to the ideology and messaging of The "Christian" Right couldn't be more important at this particular time in history. They spend billions on conservative policy messaging every year, and they tie it to the Christian faith. They tie it to Jesus. That’s blasphemy in our opinion.

We have expanded our secure methods of accepting contributions. You can use PayPal, or you can now enter card information directly using our new system powered by ‘Donorbox’ with ‘Stripe’ integration. The same system allows simple and secure bank transfers as well.  Expanding our ability to accept contributions through various methods has been something members have requested for years. Best of all, it's easy and secure!

Thank you for spreading the love of Christ. Maybe some will open their ears and hearts and start to love others as Jesus loves us all.

As an English Traditional witch, I want there to be a lot more Christians in the world like y'all.

Love you!!

Thank you TCL. I have regained my faith, the faith that religion almost destroyed thanks to you.

Laurie

So glad I found this group. I was raised as an evangelical and am horrified at how my family adores Trump. He is everything they taught me not to be.

David

Keep fighting in God’s name, follow his teachings. You make a difference.

cathy

Thank you - wishing I could do more financially - you do so much to keep my spirit renewed and my motivation to work hard to bring the world out of this dark space we are in :)

Positive words and thoughts to encourage us all to be more Christ-like in our daily lives.

PETER | $35

thank you for your ministry, and the masks, and the good faith use of Lewis's line in a way he'd bless. Donating to repel this piratical attempt to hijack a phrase that has been most thoroughly injected into public discourse, and segregate its use, diminishing its impact

Sally

I’m sorry that you are going through this. I’ve taken great comfort from your group, which I found soon after Donald Trump was elected. I knew that there must be like-minded, liberal Christians who are horrified at the Christian right’s embrace of Trumpism.

I'm Jewish and $36 is refereed to as double chai. Chai ( in Hebrew numerically 18) is the Hebrew word meaning "Life" and donations in multiples of chai (18) are traditional. Your site has always upheld the best of the traditions we share.

Natasha

I am sk sorry that the organization has been so erroneously defamed. I have followed and supported The Christian Left for years now.

Charles

I am a retired minister, living on a fixed income. Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have, I offer for the cause.

Susan

To go toward the legal fund. I’m so sorry you are having to deal with this hatred.

I'm so irritated that you have to go thru all of this. There's no good excuse. It's so hard to be a Christian in this day and age. I have really appreciated having TCL there, to remind me that not all Christians are christian in name only. Hang in there.
