Miscellaneous[edit]

This section is due to the existence of former Christians who do not fit existing lists of former Christians. Either because their current faith is indeterminate or is not dealt with by the above lists.

  • Katy Perry — Musician with 5 platinum records, daughter of Pentecostal pastors.
