Special: Grouping of Letters to Congressman William E. Dannemeyer from supporters of Valparaiso University, praising the intellectual and theological arguments in a letter from Congressman Dannemeyer to the University’s Board of Elders in defense of traditional marriage, circa June 1992. [Of note: Significant because I wrote the Congressman’s presentation making a religious argument for traditional marriage…using the LDS Plan of Salvation as my basis – a Latter-day Saint presenting to Missouri Synod Lutherans.]
