months ago but Perry was not in the race yet, I had guessed it would be someone
like Bachmann who has been known to say utterly false statements only to
backtrack at double speed.

Latter-day Saints". What a blessing to get all this attention. The good
pastor of Texas has done us more good than he ever dreamed! Thanks!11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates
