To say ASa is ostensibly all Christians is offensive to members of the ASA.
The only one I know who is not is Jonathan Wells a Moonie and of course ID.

Not all on the list are in the ASA, some like me are British and members of
Christians in Science, some are not members of either CIS or ASA and the ASA
cannot be blamed for their views.

Who are those who argue "anything goes"? On the whole most go with the ASA
consensus but it is open.

I don't think you are fair to this list or the ASA
