UPDATE: I am excited to announce that as of August 1, 2014 I have been asked to work full time for Frank Turek and CrossExamined.org. All of my articles and blog posts will now be posted on our CrossExamined website. Visit us here!


My name is Gil Gatch. A little bit about me: My favorite food is fruit of all kinds. I could eat fruit exclusively for the rest of my life—especially mangoes, figs, kiwis, bananas, pineapple, and pears. Oranges are my least favorite. Also, coffee is an everyday, every meal event for me. I need to cut back.

When people meet me for the first time they often comment on how unusual my name is. On the first day of classes, my high school teachers and college professors would tell me that “the Gil Gatch band” would be a great name for a music group. I always disagreed.

I grew up near Charleston, SC where after graduating high school I enrolled in the Biology Program at College of Charleston. Just before finishing my B. A. in Biology I was recognized for my musical talents and song writing ability. The band I led (not called the Gil Gatch band) began to tour and seek out a recording contract. After a 2 year stint playing music, I was asked to move to Charlotte, NC to plant a church where I became a Worship/Creative Pastor. I served in church ministry for 7 years.

Today, I am proud to be a part of an amazing ministry CrossExamined.org as the Administrative Director. I am also a Philosophy Student at Southern Evangelical Seminary (ses.edu), and I speak regularly on the topics of Atheism, New World Religions & Cults, and Free Masonry. I am married to the beautiful and talented Heather Gatch (lovethelookingglass.com) and we love our German Shepherd, Adler, and our Mini Rex house rabbit, Henry.

    OMG Gil, I am so smitten with you and Heather both. Ya’ll are people of substance and depth of which I knew/recognized right away but did not know to what depths. You really are married to a gorgeous woman Gil. Like you I LOVE fresh fruit of just about any type. Yesterday I found fresh apricots at HT. I generally eat a lot of dried apricots,but to find fresh ones was wonderful. Wow! I hope the three of us can become friends. Sincerely, Richard Ivan Sisson

  3. Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone that really knows what they are discussing on the net.

    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side of
    your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you
    certainly possess the gift.
