    So, I came across your site, and I must say I want to style my approach a bit closer to yours. I really enjoyed your apostasy series, as I was a fairly fervent evangelical for about 8 years (christian for 11) and recently deconverted.

    Saw Newsong in concert. 4 times. At WinterJam. I wish i knew more apostates that i could share this with, but if I posted this to facebook it would just piss everyone off. Thanks for sharing though!

      Pissing people off is exactly why I’m posting it on Facebook. I left the Assemblies of God a few years ago and I’m still Facebook friends with many evangelical Christians. I’ll post something that challenges their beliefs every now and then, but the worst part isn’t their response, it’s that they don’t respond at all! Criticism against their beliefs seems not to exist to them.

      Thanks Patrick. The posts on apostasy are some of those closest to my heart, and fellow apostates have a special place there too.

    That is freakin’ hilarious! I love Patton Oswalt and I hate that damn song! What a great combination!
