(POSTING YOUR WORK ON EX-MINISTER)                               

What I am seeking to attract and post to Ex-minister.org ? 

To give you an idea of what I am looking for, notice what I have posted from others in the past. For example, I like to post articles from those that have "been there" serving in the ministry in some capacity in the past (this isn't a requirement). I relish those that can write with warmth and haven't forgotten the humanity of man. Good-natured humor is nice, and notating disturbing observations is considered normal. Now I'm not interested to provide a platform for those who want to express how pissed off that they are about Christians! This website doesn't want to necessarily imply that all authors have left the faith, it is conceivable that a Christian could have their article posted upon this website. Overall, I desire interesting, positive people that have something important to say!  

The subject matter will need to touch upon matters somehow related to faith or religion. In general, I am not that interested in articles that are largely "political" (but some do have their place). Don't think too much about it, just send your article and give me the chance! What matters is that it delivers a good message, not if you have name recognition. I would be thrilled and honored that you would consider this site to express your work! Ideally, I would like to post one or two new articles a week on the site (I will take what I can get). Perhaps you know of an article that someone else has written that would be a good fit for this website? If so, send me the link. If I like it, I will contact that person if I can get their email address!  

I love articles that enlighten and/or make people think! I am open to posting articles that I might have a philosophical disagreement with! Posted articles are solely the views of the author themselves and not to be construed as endorsements from this website.  

Things that you should know 

I am in this for the cause of contributing something that might lead to a better world (this feeling is priceless). This would likely describe your motivations as well. Otherwise, what is in it for you? (Laughs) No financial incentives, and nothing but the platform to express your message. Just like other articles that have been posted, hopefully this would draw to or promote your site, book or etc.  

It should be understood that your submissions are actually your work and that whatever you are submitting implies your approval to post that material upon the ex-minister.org website. When your article is posted upon Ex-minister, this isn't to imply that you endorse this website, only that you agree to post your work here. Likewise, your posted work doesn't imply that Ex-minister endorses your message, only that I think your article has value and should be posted to allow the reader the opportunity to read your work. Ex-minister reserves the right to display submitted/requested work for an unspecified amount of time unless otherwise notated. Ex-minister makes no ownership claims upon your work. 

In advance, I want to thank those of you that send me worthwhile articles. I seek to acknowledge all submissions upon initial reception. I may need 7 - 10 days to review the article. Beyond initial reception acknowledgement of your work, I only promise to contact you again if I like your article.   

Permissions: Terms for Re-posting Articles

Articles on Ex-minister.org that were written only by Brian Worley can be copied without permission if all 7 of the following conditions are met. Pages from the "In Two Minds" series are off limits. Please note, that you would need to get your own permission from the authors whom have consented to post articles upon this website. Don't ask me for their contact information. Anything questionable, fuzzy or outside of these conditions you should contact me about.  

1)   Used only for non-commercial purposes (You shouldn't profit on my labor)

2)   Provided no alterations or changes are made

3)   The entirety of the article including the date, source and all rights reserved is reproduced

4)   Proper credit is notated with a courtesy link back to Ex-minister.org 

5)   Permission is extended only to the world wide web usage

6)   There is a limit of three articles allowed to be added to your site or blog

7)   If I ask you to pull my article from your site, you will consent to do so within seven days time.

Basically, I am into promoting a naturalistic, humanistic, and godless point of view. I am not interested in manipulating others, or being manipulated (thus the conditions).  Ex-minister.org welcomes suggestions and corrections such as broken links, etc. I will repair them if I am able (as I said, I am an amateur webmaster). Contact information is near the bottom of this page. 

LINKS 

Ex-minister.org welcomes links to this site. You may establish a link to this site, provided that the link does not state or imply any sponsorship or endorsement of your site by Ex-minister.org. I am open to linking to your site or blog within my links page or my blog provided that you reciprocate by linking Ex-minister.org to your site or blog. All website links, widgets or sites listed on Ex-minister's Links page are not to be necessarily considered to be endorsements and the reader enters these sites at their own risk. I desire to link with positive sites and would consider linking with Christian sites as well! For me to consider your site, your site would need to be at least 15 pages (if all pages are your original work then 12 pages is satisfactory).  Contact me if you want to link! I would like to see a well balanced representation of websites from around the world! No binding agreements or contracts are implied with any links listing.

EMAILS/CONTACT

At times, I get emails from people that are irritated; seeking to play games or provoke me to anger; or trying to change my point of view. It is up to my discretion to use or publish your email elsewhere unless you mark it as "not for publication". Any email that you send to Ex-minister that does not state that it is "not for publication", may be published by Ex-minister on its blog or elsewhere.  To those of you that are: pushy, divisive, annoying or that I suspect that you have an agenda... you will probably be ignored!
