Sending us Emails, Faxes, or letters
Please read to avoid disappointment:
Sorry for the hideous color combination, but it at least got your attention.
We expect to be in the middle of a "Disaster of the Hindenburg" class until the end of 2013-May, and perhaps a little into June. We will be unable to read most incoming Emails until this subsides.
This problem is caused by two events:
- There is an enormous series of events happening arising from the two lawsuits before the U.S. Supreme Court concerning same-sex marriage. This takes a lot of our effort to cover.
- We have to prepare our income tax forms for 2012. They generate a LOT of work.
By the time that the Supreme Court cases settle down, and we finish preparing our income tax, we expect that we will have a mountain of emails to cover.
We will read every incoming Email.
We will allocate 2 hours a day solely to answering Emails.
That is all we can do because we have other responsibilities keeping our website up to date and expanding.
Please don't send us Emails containing:
- Requests for money. We get lots of appeals from Christian groups in African countries. We are a hopelessly underfunded organization and have no surplus money to donate. Also, we are a multi-faith group, not a Christian group.
- Requests to exchange links, if your website doesn't have significant religious, spiritual, moral or ethical content.
- Requests to translate our website into Middle Eastern languages. We get so many hate Emails and the occasional death threat from that area of the world; we are not keen to get more.
Please be aware:
We are an independent, multi-faith website that is not affiliated with any other faith group or religion. Although we have essays on Mormonism, Christian Identity, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. we are totally unrelated to those groups.

By clicking on one of these links you will create an Email message to us
with ERROR, VISITOR ESSAY, LINK , NEW TOPIC or OTHER in the subject line. Please
do not erase this word because we use it to sort incoming messages by topic. We receive hundreds of Emails a day and don't want to miss any that are written by visitors to this web site.
If you do send us an Email to
email@example.com, we promise that we will NOT send you appeals for
funds or any other unsolicited Email. We will not pass your Email address on to
anyone else. But we will read your Email.
We have increased the number of hours of our part-time staff member -- our first -- to handle some of the
administrative load. We are asking visitors to our website who believe in
the message that we are disseminating to help us pay for this new
expense by joining our "300 club" and donate a
small amount of money each month via credit card or PayPal. This staff member
has freed up time. But the work load involved in keeping our 5,400 essays and menus
current -- and writing new ones -- remains overwhelming.
About read receipts:
We recommend that you request a "read receipt" when you send us an Email.
That will at least confirm that we have read it.

Other ways to reach us:
We have post office boxes and a fax number. However, we can't respond to
many letters either. In particular, we do not respond to letters seeking information about white supremacist and other hate organizations.
Our main office is in Canada. We have a PO Box:
Kingston ON Canada K7M 8W5
(A 1 ounce letter from the U.S. to Canada requires a $0.72 postage
stamp. See http://ircalc.usps.gov/ to
calculate postage for heavier letters and other items).
We don't have an office in the U.S. but we do maintain a Post Office box there
as a convenience for Americans to send mail with a regular U.S. stamp:
PO Box 128
||Toll-free Fax: (888) 806-6115. |

Sorry, but we get so many hate Emails, and the occasional death threat that we hesitate to
publish our phone number.
