We (anyone and everyone remotely associated with this project) do not endorse any of the persons, groups or opinions associated with the following websites. Some sites might be inflammatory or objectionable in nature to some viewers, but we provide links to them because they supply at the very least a perspective, if not also important information, by means of access to documents related to the subject. We have tried to be as inclusive as possible, allowing for the widest variety of opinion for such a controversial topic.

We strive to get permission from each site to link to them, but don't always have success getting through to a person. If you happen to administer one of these sites and prefer not to have it listed here, let me know and I'll be happy to take it down.

Lastly, this list is not exhaustive in any way, and we welcome suggestions for additions. Keep in mind that some links were left off this list due to them being included on one of the listed websites.
