I'll start with this statement...
I assure you, though, that if congregation elders were to pay me a visit and the entire Dawkins-Harris-Hitchings trinity was lying on my coffee table, I would not be in trouble. You are overplaying the "mind-control" card.
My first reaction is that he's lying. My second thought is...man I wish I was in his hall! If the elders wouldn't say a thing about having atheist books then God know what else they won't care about!
