    Catholics had no chance of going to heaven, none whatsoever! According to my Mother.

    Nice to be able to grow up and leave it all behind, isn't it?

    Thanks for writing this series. It's a story that needs to be told.

    •  My story (8+ / 0-)

      My book will be published on July 1, 2013 by Beacon Press. It is over 90,000 words with 675 footnotes. While it is my personal story it also links the history with the John Birch Society positions and policies. My father was a national leader of the Birch society for 32 years and his friends stopped by our home regularly. It was quite the rogues' gallery.

      •  Looking forward to reading your book. (3+ / 0-)

        I'll bet it's terrific, just from the small sample of your writing in this diary.

        Now I'm off to check out your previous posts.

        To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
