From the American Heritage Dictionary: “One who has abandoned one’s religious faith, a political party, one’s principles, or a cause. Usually apostates are called ex-members or former members.”
Lonnie Kliever, Professor of Religious Studies at the Southern Methodist University, says about apostates:
“There is no denying that these (apostates) present a distorted view of the new religions to the public, the academy, and the courts by virtue of their ready availability and eagerness to testify against their former religious associations and activities.”
I personally think these people SUCK. Too wimpy to sort out their grievances – if they are no made up to begin with – and too much of a coward to address their personal issues. Disgusting. The Church of Scientology always has an open door for those who change their mind and stop being assholes. And they will, I am positive.
So. Back to something worthwhile.
