[Disclaimer: Recognizing that a high percentage of Big Fringe visitors are Christian, we feel it prudent to point out that, although the SCN site is fairly straightforward, there is indeed an element of non-Christian/mystical influence, particularly among the various network listings and within the "Safe Areas" section -- and other areas. Nevertheless, they are fairly balanced. The fact that they have links to the "Salem New Age Center" and "The John Birch Society" on the same page ought to tell you something.]
