I hope some of you are up for reading a bit more, or even posting replies more. I have categoriezed the results, and will post an individual challenge to each crowd, thanks.

The Apathetic Crowd:
Nothing new, all the same stuff all the time
Time requirement inconveniences me
Sitting through long services
Church is boring
Getting up early is no fun
There are many other things that sound more fun to do
I don’t know what church to go to, so I don’t go
Seats are not comfortable
I have no time to go
I see no reason to go
I don’t see the need to assemble as a large group
I can’t connect with singing as worship, I want to do other things
Communion wafers taste like poo-poo

The Turned-Off Crowd:
All the hypocritical activities
I would rather help people than sit in a pew
Church can be kinda showly, I am private
Christians who say one thing and do another
Too many politics in the church
Some denominations don’t follow the bible
They don’t meet the needs of their members
Scare tactics used to control people
Too much corruption in the church
I can be spiritual without going to a church building
I don’t want to take a preacher’s word for it
I never liked it s a kid when I was forced to go
I have heard bad stories, so I don’t go
Church is kinda cultish
Guilt/demand associated with giving money
Begging for money
Pushy beliefs turn me off
Fire and brimstone preaching
Intolerance from churches
Churches sometimes compete with each other

The Intellectual-Out Crowd:
I don’t understand/agree with Christian ideologies
I don’t think God is good because of bad stuff in the world
Logic seems to support evolution instead
It’s too make believe for me, I am not a weak loser
Nothing is true, based on lies that I don’t believe
I can't see and feel God, but I can see/feel with science
I disagree with God’s existence
There is no logic, only faith, that doesn’t fly
I try to find my strength from within, and am responsible for self.

The Banned Crowd:
People judge me for my appearance
Not accepted for who I am
I feel like an outcast among “perfect” people
If I went, I would spontaneously combust

Thar it is
