/* Patheos nonbelief channel sees exodus of atheists/agnostics subsequent to its new editorial policy */
Its nonreligious channel has become an empty hulk, bereft of most of the familiar names that once occupied the space, including its most popular blogger, [[Hemant Mehta]], the “Friendly Atheist.”
Mehta and 14 other nonreligious bloggers, along with the channel manager, have decamped to a new site, OnlySky Media, set to launch later this month...
Efforts to reach Patheos’ management team were unsuccessful, but the departing bloggers and their channel manager, Dale McGowan, said that about a year ago, Patheos decided to change its editorial direction. Bloggers were advised they could stay at Patheos so long as they stopped writing negative or critical posts on religion or politics and instead focused on how to live a good life within their own worldview.<ref>[https://religionnews.com/2022/01/04/what-happened-to-the-nonbelief-channel-at-patheos/ What happened to the nonbelief channel at Patheos?]</ref>}}
