and its about time. :^) Unfortunately, the online article has been gutted - not as long or in depth as the one in printed in todays paper.

I'm going to compare the two again, maybe adding some snippets from the print article to a later post. I'm not surprised in the least by any statistic or observation made in this article. Of course, I'm biased.....

Oh well, I can't find the quote I wanted to lead off with in the online version so I'll paraphrase from print - surveys are showing that many 'evangelicals' believe that people from other religions can get to heaven.

And not surprisingly, many of the more fundamental evangelicals are advocating purging the roles of more than 17 million 'non-pure' believers. The author mentions that most of these folks who want to ex-communicate the luke warm believers fall into the calvanist camp.

Anyway, I'll continue to look for the full article online. Here is the abbreviated version:
