2014-10-08 This is really old-school: I see message ... 4 years ago
This is really old-school: I see messages in the newsmaster mail from a newgroup/rmgroup war. Haven't seen that in decades!
god@heaven.com asks for christian.binaries.sermons
to be created.

If this is acceptable, type:
  /usr/lib/news/bin/ctlinnd newgroup christian.binaries.sermons y god@heaven.com

And do not forget to update the corresponding description in your
/var/lib/news/newsgroups file.

The control message follows:

..

For your newsgroups file:
christian.binaries.sermons      Christian sermons

CHARTER: christian.binaries.sermons is a newsgroup for Christian
sermons.

The newsgroup and hierarchy will not be strictly moderated per se. Spam
and heavy trolling is not permitted, however, and may be post-moderated
after the fact. The christian top-level hierarchy does not follow the
precise policies of the current free.* hierarchy. We do, however, share
a similar vision of a relatively free and open hierarchy allowing almost
anything created by virtually anyone, with few rules.

JUSTIFICATION: Christianity being one of the world's largest religions,
there are several Christian newsgroups in various hierarchies out there,
but no established central structure that combines a variety of topics,
and especially Christian binaries are fragmented in disjointed
hierarchies throughout the Usenet. This newsgroup under the free.*
mantle espouses the ideas of freedom, the liberty to create your own
group, and allow relatively free posting with the exception of spam and
heavy trolling. As Christian newsgroups are often trolled, this is a
necessary evil for the hierarchy to thrive. In this new age of
persecution and ostracization, the christian hierarchy is necessary to
unite Christians worldwide and give them a digital home.

There has been much discussion on the Usenet regarding the need for
separate Christian groups, especially topic -specified binaries groups,
which seem to be largely absent in terms of Christian media. The amount
of Christian material found in any typical web search on this subject
alone is sufficient justification for this group.
I'm not sure usenet binaries are the best way to reach christians today. The church I visit uses live-streaming with availability on a mobile 'app' and the archive is available via the church website.
