Bill Diss Follow-up and related VOCAL Reminder to look for "wolves" getting HIS money..

ear Advocates for Life, Thank you for responding to the plea for Bill Diss. Here's his response to us. ************************************************************************************************ Dear Most Gracious Friends for Life and Purity, I want to thank all of you for your letters of support. I received copies of many of them and they really helped boost my confidence as I went to Salem today. I was extra blessed as a fellow from northeast Portland drove me down there as my knees still are not working well. Two fellow brothers from the Knights of Columbus were there to provide moral support. It was so beautiful as people of different faiths prayed together before Mr. Ortiz and Mr. Finch came into the room. What can I say but thank you and thank you .... and God Bless you ..... My lawyer had researched the laws they were trying to charge me with and he did a great job asking Mr. Finch and Mr. Ortiz to be a little more specific as to the charges. My lawyer did not want me to speak but they told us that this could be used against me, so I had to speak. Mr. Finch first mentioned that we had delayed the interview for three months and that usually a union lawyer is provided. I helped him on his counting since Mr. Ortiz did not get back to me until January 5, 2009 and that it was now just February 18, 2009. Mr. Finch and Mr. Ortiz were very vague on exactly what the charges were and I asked to see the complaint and it was very different from what he told me and was different from the initial letter. My attorney emphasized the differences to them. It was not even clear if Planned Parenthood filed the charges and when I asked him about this he got very upset and quickly put the paper back in his folder. We also brought down some more letters of support and Mr. Finch did not really want to take them and he exclaimed, "I received about 70, that YOU told people to write." I with I could say more but both my lawyer and myself are still a bit mystified of exactly what TSPC is trying to do. It appears that the matter is still under investigation and once I find out more I will share this with you. Thank you for prayers and support, Bill Diss 503-334-6183 ******************************************************************************************************* FROM THE VOCAL ARHIVES May 15, 2007 Dear Friends, In 's fight against Planned Parenthood and the abortion site in a minority neighborhood, we found that Bertha Ferran was on the board of Catholic Charities, NOW we find that Charles Wilhoite, another Portland Development Commissioner is on the Board of Directors of Jesuit High School according to his bio. Bertha Ferran stepped down from the Catholic Charities board, we hope that Mr. Wilhoite will do the same from Jesuit, they need to be in union with the Church on the issue of abortion. At a Portland Development Commission meeting Mr. Wilhoite didn't want to look at the Planned Parenthood material shown during testimony by a concerned citizen. According to Precious Children of Portland....... Call Charles Wilhoite, commissioner who stated that the book used by Planned Parenthood was porn, but likes the idea of letting Planned Parenthood teach very graphic sex from that book to our 10 year old daughters.

Those who are in Catholic leadership need to believe Catholic teachings in faith and morals ******************************************************************************************************* There are some wonderful things in the works that we all can participate in ..things to really change our Catholic world in Oregon. We are blessed. God bless you and yours, Carolyn "Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so. Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property. But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is long delayed,' and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with drunkards, the servant's master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth."
