(COMMENT: I should write a book about religious, conservative, and Republican leaders in Illinois who hint/imply/argue/shout that I am a “BAD MESSENGER,” and that therefore, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters frustrate their efforts to defend and advance religious, conservative, and Republican principles. I would focus on those leaders a) who stress that I am not a member of a church, b) who stress that I do not attend church services, c) who stress that I do not give money to a church, d) who stress that my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents, e) who stress that I am White, male, old (73), non-veteran, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, and 100% German American, and f) who stress that I was a federal employee for almost 30 years and that I have been a federal retiree for more than 24 years.)
