I have my answer from Stephen Green of Christian Voice regarding the circular at the centre of the Jerry Springer protests.

I asked him the following question via email on Jan 11:

Dear Mr Green,

Can you confirm that the email quoted below originated from Christian Voice as you suggest in this Guardian article?
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,1387292,00.html

And over the weekend I got this reply:

From: Christian Voice
To: Tim Ireland
Sent: Saturday, January 15, 2005 6:41 PM
Subject: Re: FAO Stephen Green – JS:TO circular

Dear Tim,
Thank you for your email. No, that isn’t from me. I would not use that many explanation marks.
Yours sincerely,
Stephen Green, M.A.
National Director, Christian Voice

Yesterday, I asked for permission to publish this answer… and for clarification that it did not come from him or from anyone else in his organisation. He just sent me this:

“It was not a Christian Voice email in any sense, nothing to do with us at all.”

So there’s my answer. I’ll continue to try and backtrack the email to its source. The information I get from my FOI request(s) should at least suggest the date it was first released, which will help a great deal with that backtracking.

The purpose of all this, of course, is to find the source of the email and demand (ahem) an exclamation.
