. I was raised in an Italian Catholic family
My purpose for writing this book was to inform the many people, my family members included, about the deception that the Roman Catholic Church has perpetrated since 300 ad. I noticed this deception when I was in a Roman Catholic Seminary. I started to read the Bible, a Catholic Bible that I bought in the bookstore, and found discrepancies between what was in the Bible and what I was being taught in the classroom.

I was very active in the Roman church when I returned home. I joined the Knights of Columbus, I was an usher, a bingo caller, a money counter, and worked in the rectory office part time and I coached CYO sports.

When I called him to find out how the meeting went he was very upset. He had not seen the Bishop but was told by the secretary that the Bishop said he could have the annulment and it would only cost him
