The Looney Religious Left and 9/11

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the liberal theologians feel compelled to join Michael Moore and Barbra Streisand:
Louisville, Kentucky—“One of our main tasks as theologians is to deal with current events in light of the fact that our first allegiance must be to God, who created and loves all people–indeed all forms of life,” argues David Ray Griffin in the preface of his just released and highly controversial Christian Faith and the Truth behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action. “If we believe that our political and military leaders are acting on the basis of policies that are diametrically opposed to divine purposes, it is incumbent upon us to say so.”

Thus, with a marked departure from his usual research and publications in process theology and religion and science, Griffin, who initially scoffed at “9/11 conspiracy theories,” places his formidable reputation on the line and advances a chilling argument for the Christian scholarly and church communities. Painstakingly laying forth an abundance of evidence and disturbing questions that implicate the Bush administration in 9/11, Griffin charges the administration itself with orchestrating the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for expanding the American empire. He cites evidence that the Twin Towers were brought down by controlled demolition; that military personnel were given stand-down orders not to intercept hijacked flights; and that the 9/11 Commission, ostensibly created to uncover the truth behind the events of 9/11, simply ignored evidence that the administration was involved in the attacks.
Oh, bother. And...yawn. "Chilling" - not.
