Jennifer Best, my Friend, You missed that post because, when I reported it, the Mods did remove the post -- but did not ban Vic for posting it. Threatening to kill someone is serious, even when it comes from a mind like Vic's. So, why did the Mods not take a more decisive action? May be a question for the publisher. God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day, Bill

Jennifer Best, my Friend, I presume your post is meant for me. So, let me ask you -- if you have me blocked how did you see my post? And, what in my previous post do you consider "nasty"? Do you deny that when Vic posts -- the ones he copy/pastes are fairly well written; yet, the ones he spews from his own mind -- do leave a lot to be desired? What is nasty about sharing that thought? Of course, since you have me blocked -- you will not see this. Not a problem. And, if you feel that Pastor...

Hi Pastor Len, While I have never blocked anyone on the Religion Forum, I must admit that I have walked on past many of Vic's posts. There are two flavors of post we see from Vic: 1. When he plagiarizes another person's writing by copy/pasting their work as his -- most often these are well written posts. Obviously because they did not come from the mind of Vic. And, most often I disagree with the content because he usually copy/pastes directly from some Vatican writings. 2. But, when the...

Hi all, To the best of my knowledge, Tony Pezzotta passed into heaven at his son's home in Denver. But, I have sent a Message to his daughter, Marie, to get her feedback on the validity of this church bulletin message -- whether it was a created PDF document attempting to smear Tony's name by making it look like a true church bulletin. Or, if it was done by an over-zealous Roman Catholic priest and church. Since Marie returned from the missionary field (Costa Rica) to be with her dad at that...

Hi Pastor Len, These are the latest I have on Tony's book "Truth Encounter": On Facebook Message: May 24, 2013, Marie wrote: Marie Pezzotta Foote: And yes, we are working on an online, downloadable PDF version of my dad's book. Stay tuned. But, as you know from personal experience, being a missionary is a full time job. And, just last year is when Tony passed away. So, I guess we just have to be patient and pray for them to have help in converting the book to PDF format on the internet.
