Minister Calls on Listeners to Donate to $30,000 Fund Drive

We received the following statement from a minister for publication in Revolution:

I am a minister and every Sunday I do a radio program on a religious station that reaches people in five or six states. I've also been a supporter of the Revolutionary Communist party for over 20 years. I've distributed Revolution newspaper and donated and raised money for the Party. For the last couple of weeks I've been reading quotes from BAsics and calling on my listeners to donate money to the $30,000 fund drive.

Even though we don't agree on everything, the party tells the truth about things in this country and all over the world that should be passed on to others. The truth is the truth and it doesn't matter whose mouth it comes out of. We need the truth. People need to know the truth. I say "just read Revolution and you'll know the truth too." He who does not read believes. In order to be informed, you have to read. You can't just read the bible. You need to read other books and other opinions.

I agree with everything the party says needs to be done. It looks like things have gotten worse and we need a big change. I like Bob Avakian's ideas and concepts. I like that he tells it like it is. He's not fearful. He's not a little mouse who runs every time the wind blows. He's a real leader. That's why I like BAsics a lot. The book is good. It's got a thousand good quotes. It's got a quote for everything. Everybody needs to read BAsics.
