With regard to the appeal for the defense fund for Kristin Kazyak because of her arrest at St. Therese’s in Alhambra, CA. on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, I wish to publicly retract my support for her efforts. Since I first sent out the appeal, I’ve been in touch with many people including the pastor of St. Therese’s and others, whose opinions I respect, who raised a number of questions about the incident and other problems. I spoke to Kristin as well and can only say that I was seriously misled. I not only retract my support for her defense fund, but I urge people not to support Kristin’s efforts and to pass on this retraction to anyone who received the first appeal.
