David Ray Griffin 2006 "9/11 and Christian Faith"
The main alternative theory is that 9/11 was a "false flag" operation, orchestrated by forces within the US government who made it appear to be the work of Arab Muslims. Professor of Theology (emeritus) David Ray Griffin offers a Christian critique of the American empire in light of 9/11, and of 9/11 in light of the American empire. This critique presupposes a discussion of 9/11 itself, especially the question of who was responsible for the attacks. The official theory is that the attacks were planned and carried out entirely by Arab Muslims.
Dr. David Ray Griffin, speaking as a theologian, explains why Christians above all should oppose empire and hence seek to expose the truth about 9/11. On Saturday, March 25, 2006, the author of The New Pearl Harbor made a return to his accustomed discipline of theology. He spoke to a large audience crowding into the Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara, CA.
The evidence that 9/11 was a false flag attack is very strong, Griffin argued, lamenting that most Americans reject the idea that their own government could ever do such a thing – without examining the facts! In reality, false flag attacks are historically common, frequently used by empires to provide pretexts for war and create the enemy images necessary for rallying a fearful people behind imperial policy. The history of the United States has not been different in this regard, as Griffin makes clear. And those who attain these insights, especially with regard to 9/11, are forced to take action.
Griffin notes that we are living in an empire similar to the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus, which put him to death for resistance against it. Griffin therefore asks his fellow Christians in America how they should
respond to this realization.
David Ray Griffin is professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology and co-director of the Center for Process Studies. Among his classic books are God and Religion in the Postmodern World and Religion and Scientific Naturalism. Since his retirement, Griffin has written eleven bestsellers about 9/11: Starting with The New Pearl Harbor in 2004 to his most recent book in 2011, 9/11 - Ten Years Later.
