    Their entire letter is a mishmash of fundamentally confused and contradictory notions.

    Bishops Farrell & Vann are more spokespersons for the North Texas Republican Church than they are of any organization that could remotely be thought to be in the running for a universal church. Theirs is a typical piece of late political propaganda set forth by losing and desperate party hacks.
