I have finished my letter resigning a a member of my current congregation. It takes effect after I direct the bell choir. I tried not to be too harsh, yet I had to get the point across. Being diplomatic is not my forte.
I am reading the book The Black Book of Communism right now. It brings the 1917 Revolution in a whole new light. The repression of the Russian people began almost immediately after the takeover by Lenin and his gang of thugs. Trotsky was in on destroying people's lives as well as Lenin. Both became good templates Stalin follwed. Right now, I am reading about the influence Communism International (Comintern) has on the world of communist parties. Fun light reading.
