      Indiana Baptist Temple Appeals To Bush
      (70 Days Past D-Day)
       
      From: "Rev. Bruce Evan Murch" <kidsx9@...>

      Christian Friends,

      JANET RENO IS GONE, BUT WE ARE STILL HERE AT THE INDIANAPOLIS BAPTIST TEMPLE!!

      We praise and thank God that He has seen fit to grant us a STAY OF THIS SEIZURE FOR 70 DAYS SO FAR!

      The Baptist Deacon/U.S. Marshal Frank Anderson has still not come in to raid this church, and appears to be in no great hurry to do it. He was reportedly under pressure from the Reno Justice Dept. to get it done before Inauguration Day.

      PASTOR DIXON GOES TO WASHINGTON

      Please keep us in prayer as Pastor Greg A. Dixon and attorney Al Cunningham arrive in Washington, DC today on a mission. They left here with one-way tickets. They are not leaving until they have spoken to President Bush or Attorney General (who will be confirmed today or Tuesday) John Ashcroft. Either one of these men can make this siege stop immediately. Ashcroft can simply withdraw the original complaint which will make all this go away. President Bush can forgive the judgment against the church which will also make this go away.

      A PERMANENT RESOLUTION

      Two other pastors have left from IBT as well with a different mission. They are visiting Congressmen and Senators with a proposal for a Joint Resolution on Unregistered Churches. The resolution will basically show Congress' intent that the First Amendment to the Constitution, affirmed by Holy Trinity Church v. United States should be interpreted as: Congress does not intend that CHURCHES NOT ORGANIZED UNDER IRS CODE ARE NOT SUBJECT TO GENERAL REGULATORY LAWS.

      While this will not be binding as LAW, it will show CONGRESS' INTENT. It will have to be considered when judges render decisions like the one in the case of IBT. There will be no confusion as to legal status of unregistered churches--ie., that they are NOT legal entities. There are several legislators already willing to sponsor this resolution and Majority Whip Tom Delay feels he can get it passed. Bush has formed a new Office of Faith-Based Organizations, which will be headed by Steven Goldsmith, former Mayor of Indianapolis. Mr. Goldsmith is also willing to intervene on behalf of Indianapolis Baptist Temple, and will make sure that rules pertaining to churches in his new office DO NOT APPLY to unregistered churches like IBT.
      Translation: "we will leave churches like yours alone" (his words).

      PLEASE CONTACT PRESIDENT BUSH'S OFFICE AND THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY
      GENERAL:

      President Bush:

      202/456-1414   Phone
      202/456-2461   Fax

      Attorney General John Ashcroft's office

      202/307-2825   Fax


      +++++++++++++++++
      Sample letter:

      Dear President Bush,

      Please intervene on behalf of the Indianapolis Baptist Temple. It is not
      good Public Policy for the government to RAID Christian Churches in America. Right now, Indianapolis Baptist Temple members and supporters are occupying their church around the clock as U.S. Marshals have been ordered to "use whatever force is necessary" to seize this 50-year old mainstream Baptist Church for taxes that they simply DO NOT OWE.

      The former administration forgave millions of dollars of corporate tax debt
      in just the last two months. They forgave hundreds of millions in Third
      World debt as well.

      PLEASE DISMISS AND PARDON THE TAX LIABILITY JUDGMENT AGAINST THIS CHURCH.

      Sincerely,

      +++++++++++++++++

      Dear Mr. Ashcroft,

      Please intervene on behalf of the Indianapolis Baptist Temple. It is not
      good Public Policy for the government to RAID Christian Churches in America. Right now, Indianapolis Baptist Temple members and supporters are occupying their church around the clock as U.S. Marshals have been ordered to "use whatever force is necessary" to seize this 50-year old mainstream Baptist Church for taxes that they simply DO NOT OWE.

      This siege began as a LAWSUIT BROUGHT BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. You need only withdraw the original complaint and this church will be safe from seizure. A permanent resolution is in the works right now, but will not help this church if it is seized and sold before that process is complete.

      As a Christian, I urge you to step in and protect this church against the
      forces of evil that preceded you.

      Sincerely,
      ....
      A servant of Christ,

      Bruce Evan Murch
