Well, lets see, they can go have a crisis of faith and turn out exactly like
me and become another irritant under your skin. Or, worse, they could leave
the faith altogether as so many of my atheist friends have done.

I hope it was clear that I was expressing the views of the clergy I referred
to, not my own. Of course I agree with your objections to those views - &
would add the fact that by allowing YEC views they contribute to making
Christians seem stupid.
