To: Dr. Brian Kopp

I was born into the Roman Catholic faith, underwent infant baptism and was raised R.C. Later in life I drifted away from the church when the Latin Mass was superceded and as I became aware of a number of controversies affecting the church which we will not re-hash here.

On the other hand I do not believe the Catholic Church to be an invalid expression of Christianity AND I sent my kids to Catholic School (”Cathedral High”) in Indianapolis, Indiana. My daughter was invited to attend both Notre Dame & Boston College. The kids go to Mass every Sunday and my boy is aghast at my attendance at protestant services. (AND I respect his opinion).

From my point of view I support all Christian Churches. I will worship wherever Jesus Christ is venerated & revered. I have found great spiritual power in all the denominations I’ve visited. I delight in the variety of Christian expression I have encountered in the thirty some odd churches I have attended “On Pilgrimage” for my Campaign. I still attend both Catholic and a variety of protestant services. I accepted adult “Re-Baptism” in an Assembly of God congregation in Montana at a time when I attended both Catholic AND Assembly services each Sunday in the town. I believe that my “Born Again” status in the protestant community does not conflict with my infant Baptism as a Catholic. I believe it is time for Christians to recognize their division at the hands of Satan and their awesome potentially power, were they to be reunited. I see myself as an incredibly imperfect but forgiven SON OF THE KING, JESUS CHRIST. My life is a testimony to God’s benevolence to the undeserving. I believe He has called me to serve our country in a political capacity at this time of crisis and I am at His disposal, whatever the outcome!Part of my role may also be to operate as unifier and healer to the Christian Community.

Finally: I do not think it profitable to squander goodwill on minor religious differences at the outset of our great battle against “OBAMANATION”.

AMEN!
/ Bill
