I am very proud of Bishop Henry Mansell for stating in the Jan. 23 News why he did not attend President Clinton's rally. As a faithful Catholic, raising my family to be the same, I agree wholeheartedly with the bishop's stance.
I look for the bishop and the Catholic Church to provide my family with moral support to discern between right and wrong. By the bishop not going to see the president, he made a statement to all Catholics that should be respected.
I am very happy that children in Catholic schools did not attend the rally. To me, this shows that Catholic schools are thrifty and spend what little money they have on that which is important to our children's education. Seeing this president in person was not important.
