Thank you Fred for pushing this...it´s amazing the energy you have devoted to ¨make things right¨ after DJS and the disaster of a hurricane he generated in San Joaquin.

Thank you, you are appreciated in little outposts throughout the world...our Anglican/other sisters in Africa need our help badly...they ARE being persecuted beyond belief by the same criminals who infest TEC with thievery and fear and hate...but, you´re absolutely correct, we must change US first and put a stop to the abuse while attempting to support others in the Anglican Communion who are willing to see the danger of exploiters, bigots and thieves attempting to destroy OUR Church.
