About

Hello. My name is Mister Gradenko. Well, that’s not my real name. I’ve decided to go incognito. The reason is simple. I’m a nonbeliever living in the Bible Belt in the United States. But that’s not all.  For nearly 15 years, I was a Christian minister. I was a pastor in the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the U. S.

Intended audience

I’m writing for skeptics, doubters, apologists, and clergy.

Features

Gradenko’s Daily Dish is the heart of the blog. Here I will share my thoughts on current events from politics to religion to pop culture.

Gradenko’s One Nightstand is where I will blog through what I’m reading. I invite you to read over my shoulder as I point out things that interest me in everything from the Bible to Richard Dawkins.

Reasons for Disbelief is more of a tag than anything else. I envision this as an ever-growing catalog of persuasive arguments against religious belief and for incredulity.

Feedback

I expect to post at least two to three times a week. Also, I plan to add contact, links, and resource pages in the coming weeks.

Please do give me feedback. If you disagree, say so. I only ask that you do not ask my real name.

Miss Gradenko (The Police, 1983)

Don’t tell the director I said so
But are you safe Miss Gradenko?
We were at a policy meeting
They were planning new ways of cheating
I didn’t want to rock your boat
But you sent this dangerous note
You’ve been letting your feelings show

Are you safe Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko are you safe?
Are you safe Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko are you safe?

Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody at all in here?
Nobody but us in here
Nobody but us in here
Is anybody alive in here?
Nobody but us in here

Your uniform don’t seem to fit
You’re much too alive in it
You’ve been letting your feelings show

Are you safe Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko are you safe?

Nobody but us {hang on at end slightly for rapid fade}
