Confederate States of America (Occupied)
Dear Ambassador Rose,
I was a little perplexed after I first read the following note you posted:
Letter to Vatican being prepared. It is approximately 50% complete. It is being addressed directly to Pope Benedict himself. I can not promise that we will receive a positive response, yet it is far better to try and fail than not try at all.At first glance, such an appeal doesn't seem to be in keeping with traditional confederate values. I mean, heck, as the Grand Wizard of his southern heritage appreciation society, Confederate hero Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest courageously fought against the forces of romanism. One can imagine the point of his hood going limp at the mere thought of seeking assistance from a Catholic pope.
But then, Benedict XVI isn't your father's John Paul II. Like Gen. Forrest, der Pöpenführer was a member of a heritage appreciation society, albeit a German one. Indeed, the Pope's organization appreciated many of the same elements of heritage Forrest's group admired. That might be something you can use in your letter to establish a common bond.
I hope your effort is successful. It could help the CSA overcome its financial troubles. Lord knows Gov. Pierce is worried about coming up with the $60 needed to purchase an official CSA notary seal. He said so in his last fundraising letter.
You know, the official robes of Gen. Forrest's southern heritage appreciation society look a lot like altar boy dresses. Perhaps you could wear one if you get an audience with the Pope. I bet he'd really like that. You could probably get him to cough up enough money for at least two notary seals.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot
