There is no First Amendment issue. None at all. The content of the
faxes is immaterial; the simple fact is that the so-called "Reverend"

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Apparently the church's legal
department (Phelps Chartered) has covered that angle pretty well.
They wait until YOU fax THEM or establish some sort of 'prior
relationship', in the same way that phone sales droids work. That's
why I suggest caution be taken by any Digest readers who feel a
need to Witness to these confused Christians. PAT]
