I was raised Presbyterian...

so should this resonate with me at some deep level?

...the publishing arm of the Presbyterian Church [USA] has decided to heat up the brimstone a notch, releasing its very own 9/11 conspiracy theory: "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action." Written by David Griffin and put out by Westminster John Knox Press, a division of the Presbyterian Publishing Corp., the book argues that 9/11 was a highly orchestrated Bush administration sham.

Just read this article..."Mr. Griffin is not a Presbyterian, nor, as representatives of the publishing company and the church are quick to point out, does he speak for the Presbyterian Church USA"....He was not Presbyterian, but you wrote,

"I was raised Presbyterian...

so should this resonate with me at some deep level?"

What's the correlation?

This is:

"...while the publishing company may not officially speak for everyone in the church," Mr. Brown warns, 'they're certainly affiliated with it -- their board of directors is nominated by our church's General Assembly, which sets policy for the PCUSA. This is outrageous.'"

Well, that and my razor sharp sense of irony.
