alt.christianparty discussion of the history and genealogy of Christian Israelites around the world
The purpose of the newsgroup is to bring together Christians from different churches and
parts of the world to discuss the history and genealogy of Israelites, who are descendants
of Jacob. The newsgroup will not be moderated.
Justification of Readership:
Discussions in private email lists and on several newsgroups with approximately 1,200
subscribers suggest that many of the 264 million Christians in the US are interested in
learning the history and genealogy from the time of Jacob to the present, in a forum
that's dedicated to close scrutiny of the Holy Bible. This topic has been raised on
newsgroups like alt.education and alt.bible but there were many complaints about this
being off-topic from the purpose of those groups. Several of the key experts who
have raised this issue on lists like Yahoogroups and Topica have been criticized for not
staying on topic, so many of the users who subscribed to those lists want to use a
newsgroup format rather than a Yahoogroup format.
