A Note from the Publisher of Sophia Publishing

Dear Friends:

Just a brief note to forestall possible scandal.

The magazine Inside the Vatican just published a harsh letter
attacking the Pope, and it was signed by Michael Rose.

Our author, Michael S. Rose, did not write that unfortunate
letter and does not know who did. Nor does he hold the views
expressed in the letter.

Michael has contacted Inside the Vatican about this, and I told
him that I would let my contacts know that he did not write it,
lest he be misjudged for intemperate words that are the product
of another's pen.


I'm surprised that Inside the Vatican would have published the letter in the first place if it is critical of the pope and without checking with Michael Rose to see if he wrote it.
