Jared wrote: The real pastor was not as ineloquent, but his reasons aren't much more sophisticated than those in the counter-example I provided.I would counter that his actual reasons for deconverting were far different and much more sophisticated than your interpretation, i.e "The bible sucks" and "God is for weak minded weiners" Any honest reading of the interview confirms this.
