Nevertheless, Adherents.com is an excellent source of statistical information about a wide variety of religious movement.

Calvary Chapel FUAQ - Part of outspoken Calvary Chapel critic Douglas Gilliland's site. Keyed "grey" (grey zone) due to his rabid, un-Christlike behavior in the arcc-c newsgroup. Known for his attacks on those who don't agree with him (and recently his forging of a post in the name of one of his critics), he is not a recommended source of information.
