Mr. Representative, and Mr. Senator,

             I was told that I am not allowed; by law; to mix religious and secular materials.

            Let me explain. I minister to people at half way houses and homeless shelters.
            I left Bibles; and another time tracts; at some of these places. I was told I could not do that any longer. When did these things happen? When did Communism come into vogue? To say we could not act like Christians.

Please call the Speaker and the Senators to rectify this.

As I recallAmericais a Christian Nation; at least; the majority of Americans claim to be Christian.

We were taught this in school, and Gentlemen; we need to get our history books out.

 A few of these may be found at WWW.WALLBUILDERS.ORG Under  Historical Documents.
