In my opinion, these people are a detriment to the human race. For
Christians, they represent an additional concern - the destruction of
Christianity's reputation. They are anti-intellectual, very dishonest,
hypocritical, manipulative, cult-like, mindless, desperate, pathetic,
anti-social, unfair, and repulsive.

I disagree. Evangelicals are Bible believers.

Interestingly, Billy Graham's website has changed from several months
back. It used to trumpet creationism or day-age. Now, it is difficult
to find what his organization's position is.

I give the ASA list credit for tolerating the reasons that I left
Christianity. Mostly I am remaining on this list to keep current with
Christian thought (and maybe point out logical fallacies that Christians
would miss). Don't hold your breath on my re-conversion. I've been
"Christian indoctrinated" my whole life, and I am still catching up on
"hearing the other side of the story."
