am happy to show the letter to anyone who wishes to see it. I am not
saying that this bishop's views are representative of all of the EP's
bishops. If I had been under a different bishop, who knows? I might
have remained in the EP today, or at least a longer time. If I had a
scanner I would post the original letter on the list. If you or
anyone wants to see it, please send me your address and I will be
happy to send it to you and allay your suspicions.
Please explain what you mean by the phrase "the objects of ecumenism".
