    Welcome to Ricochet, Eric:

    Chuck Colson would, no doubt, be proud of your new association with this fine organization!

    I, too, read your article about Tim at Patheos, last November. I was very moved.

    No doubt, many here will be eagerly awaiting your first ‘contribution’!

    Welcome! What could be more relevant than life, marriage, and religious freedom, all of which are under siege. Thank you.

    Welcome, Eric! I always love hearing you on RJ’s podcast, and I was particularly moved by this article you wrote: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/manhattanproject/2012/11/my-gay-roommate/

    Your friend is one of the bravest men I’ve ever heard of. Please give him my highest regards.
