News Anouncement: New 9/11 Truth Website called "Religious Leaders For 9/11 Truth"

Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers,
I received this e-mail today with this announcement:

A new organization called "Religious Leaders for 9 /11 Truth" has been formed. A small group of charter members has posted a statement of concern and a petition for a new investigation of 9/11 at rl911truth.org. (David Ray Griffin has been serving as an advisor to this organization.)

These religious leaders---who include lay as well as professional religious leaders---have recognized the significant moral challenge posed by the discrepancy between the official account of 9/11 and extensive evidence, based on independent research, that has shown this official account to be false.

Just as religious leaders have historically spoken out against previous forms of morally unacceptable practices based on lies, the charter members of Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth recognize that we cannot acquiesce in a cover-up of the truth about an event that has served as the basis for the "War on Terror," especially when this so-called war has produced so much oppression, including the killing and maiming of millions of innocent persons, the use of torture on detainees, the portrayal of Islam as an inherently violent religion, and the view that Muslim countries have no right not to be attacked.

The charter members of Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth are now issuing a call for religious leaders from all religious traditions to sign our petition, which ends by "ask[ing] President Obama to authorize a new, truly independent, investigation into the attacks of 9/11."

Although the Web site is oriented around this petition, it also provides several resources, including a set of articles about 9/11 written from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim perspectives. (These are all first-rate essays. Those written from a Christian perspective, for example, are by four of America's leading theologians: John B. Cobb, Jr., David Ray Griffin, Catherine Keller, and Rosemary Radford Ruether.) We hope soon to have essays from members of other religious traditions as well.

We encourage all religious leaders---defined as people who exercise (or have exercised) a leadership role, whether in a lay or professional capacity, in or on behalf of some religious community or organization, or who teach (or have taught) religion from a faith perspective---to visit our website (rl911truth.org), read the statement and, if you agree, sign the petition.

---Lou Stolzenberg, on behalf of the charter members of Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth.

(from the website)

The religions of the world share universal values of love, truth, and justice, and believe in helping those who are oppressed or otherwise in need. Many religious persons try to engage in activities to make the world a better place, and they trust in a Higher Power to assist them.

When faced with actions that conflict with the universal moral principle that we should not do to others what we would not want done to ourselves or our loved ones, members of faith communities have a responsibility to voice their opposition to those actions. Many religious leaders throughout history have publicly challenged morally unacceptable practices --- recently, for example, in the civil rights and anti-apartheid movements.

A significant moral challenge has emerged due to glaring discrepancies between the official version of the events of September 11, 2001, and the results of extensive independent research by individuals with relevant scientific or professional expertise.

501C (3) Government Contracts With Religious Organizations

When the student is ready the teacher will come.

Back in early 2007 I sent out close to 1000 mailed letters with a speech written by David Ray Griffin called "9/11 And The American Empire: How Should Religious People Respond", to almost every church in the Milwaukee County area of Wisconsin. I think I got 2 responses back from that huge mailing task. The 501C (3) government contracts that religious organizations abide by keeps almost all of the religious clergy (leaders) from
making political statements that conflict with official government versions of controversial political events. Religious leaders in this country that are willing to seek the truth about 9/11 are a rare breed. It's very sad to see how most of our religious leaders don't speak up about the atrocities that this government has inflicted on some of it's own people and to the tens of thousands, if not millions, of people from smaller and poorer countries around the world. I still hope for more religious leaders to speak out about 9/11 truth, and it's good to see this organization develop with it's 32 religious people that have spoken out so far.

Faith

One does not need to be "religious," one does not need to be a "leader," and one does not have to belong to an "organization" to have a deep connection by Faith to a "Higher Power," (however one may construe that term.)

Perhaps the new organization might consider broadening its title to something along the lines of: "religious, spiritual, ethical and philosophical persons for 9/11 truth." The idea is to include ALL of Creation under the tent of Truth, is it not?

Just a thought. ( Maybe not a great thought -- maybe not even a good thought - but it did occur to me so I thought I'd share it.).

Your Thought is Absolutely Correct

I agree with all that you say. I will pass this message on to the site. When thinking of the masses we know many, if not most, of them belong to some church denomination and many if not most of them look for guidance, have respect and follow the thoughts and messages of their religious leaders. So although this organization limits itself to identifying with religious leaders I still think it's an important truth site to have among the many others that are out there.

Thank you

Thank you for passing along my views. I agree that every sincere site helps (even though each site - like each of us - has its limitations).
