What I am suggesting is that the ASA adopt a formal statement that reflects
the majority view, go on record, and announce it by way of a press release.
Allan Harvey's draft is a good place to start. Maybe it's just good!

Of course we have a lunatic fringe, doesn't every Christian organization?
Or perhaps, they are keeping an eye on us hoping we remain the toothless
tiger we have always been. Speaking only for myself, I think YEC is a
cancer in the body of Christ, and I think the ASA should take a leadership
role in excising it.
