Mr. Yardley has admitted as such.
If you don't beleive in God and you are a progessive politically then you would be a Godless progressive.
If that is a bad thing, I am sorry.
I don't think I invented it, but maybe I did.
Having said that, Snopes is NOT the final word on everything.
And opinions are just that, opinions, no matter how many paragraphs one writes to support ones opinion.
Every one here has an opinion based on their lifes experiences, mine led me to be called a right wing extremist.
Mr. Yardleys led him to be a Godless progressive (based on his own expressed opinions and positions).
But I never questioned Mr. Yardley's integrity.
To insinuate that my integrity is flawed, I take exception.
You may not like my opinions, nor I yours, but we both have the right to express them as we came to our positions in earnest.
