This is a query about the US Congressional Library article...
Some how I get the impression that this article is the sort of paraphrasing the references to the Indian Church which appears in the Catholic encyclopaedia - published by Vatican...
Also, I remember a BBC Documentary which was aired some time in 2002 August which also took the attitude that the Church in India was a creation of the Catholic Missionaries who accompanied the early colonists... and all the rest were sort of rebels from this...
I had sent a protest to the BBC, which they sort of ignored... after all why should they listen to the voice of one lone "wog(American English description of us) or "native"(what the Brits call us)
Your call to the people in the inner circles of Washington is definitely appropriate and I add, will the Clergy be able to see if some education is given to the law makers there???
