For your newsgroups file:
alt.religion.christian-teen Discussion area for Christian teens &

This newsgroup was originally proposed in alt.config about 6 weeks ago as
alt.religion.christian.teen. I received a number of suggestions to change the
name to what it is presently in order to avoid creating another hierarchy.

I received a lot of interest and there is definitely a need for a newsgroup like
this. Between just my homepage and some others that I have contacted we
alone will be able maintain between 50 and 100 messages a day.

Your consideration of this request is GREATLY appreciated!
