About the ASA:

The American Scientific Affiliation was founded in 1941 to integrate, communicate, and facilitate properly researched science and theology in service to the Church and the scientific community. The ASA is not an advocacy organization. Where there is honest disagreement on an aspect of science, Christian faith, or the relationship between the two, the ASA strives to create a safe environment in which dialogue can flourish and diverse, even contrasting, ideas can be discussed with courtesy and respect.
