    Interesting study:

    I think this study helps to debunk the myth that former Christians are all victims of trauma (Oh, she was hurt by the church and then she left) or are secret sinners (he left because he had a bad pornography habit).

    Shockingly enough, some people leave the faith because they find it illogical. Even pastors...
