Phil Zimmerman writes:
Dear Kevin, I wanted to inform you of a new organization I have formed: Christians for 9/11 Truth. I wanted to ask for your advice and critical appraisal of our site and content. I have written a number of theological essays on issues relating to 9/11 and have compiled a background information section that can quickly bring people up to speed on the major issues of 9/11 Truth. My goal is to make a compelling moral case for 9/11 truth that is appealing to the church. There are over 100 million Christians in the US. This is a group that self-proclaims a love of truth and honesty. It is a potential source of millions of new truth advocates. I also aim to inject this issue into the church with the goal of changing it from a flag-waving, establishment supporting mass, into one that takes its convictions seriously and advances the cause of social justice. I have a number of people who are working on this project with me, and we are trying to find ways of getting our message out. We have been online a couple months and the message seems to be catching on. We produced a youtube video which is picking up steam and had 1, 000 viewers in its first week. If you would like to give us a shout out on your show or, conduct an, interview at some point we would be interested in participating. Thanks for all you do. Your response letter to Matt Taibbi was awesome.
