8549: No Vodou reps in the CEP (fwd)

From: Lois E Wilcken <makandal-ny@juno.com>

I'm wondering if anyone else on the list is struck by the lack of
inclusion of Vodou in the proposed CEP.  The Catholic and Episcopal
churches, and the "Reformed Churches" (fundamentalist?) are included. 
Having been brought up on the principle of church-state separation, I
have reservations about the inclusion of any religious group, and I doubt
that being inluded in the CEP would do anything for Vodou, anyway.  But I
just wonder why the omission.  I'd have a hard time believing it was an
oversight.  Just the same old discrimination?
