Skeptic Tank!

For the past three years, I have monitored the Fundamentalist Christian radio and television shows. A number of the ministries and organizations have demonstrated interest in and concern about the New Age and Wicca. Below is a listing of those with whom I have come in contact, either via mail correspondence or through their appearance on radio and television shows. This should not in any way be assumed to be a complete list. If you have names, addresses, or phone numbers to add to the list, please do so. I would appreciate being notified of any other names added to the list so that I can add them to the files. Thank You. Rowan Moonstone CultWatch Response, Inc.
