Thank you very VERY much for these
beautiful words of encouragement.

I confronted the Pastor and he admitted, 
via fax, to being in possession 
of the Registered U.S. Mail which
I posted to the grand jury foreperson --
with restricted delivery and return receipt --
and this after I briefed him in detail
about what I was going to do, and why!

Go figure!!

They preach the Law, and then they go break
it themselves.  What a fine example of a 
double standard he is preaching to the world.

No thank you!!!
