Text of a statement issued Thursday by John C. Salvi III, who is 
accused of killing two abortion clinic workers in Massachusetts:

I am a resident of the state of New Hampshire. If convicted of 
the charges I am accused of, I wish to receive the death 
penalty. After proceedings are through, I wish to have an 
interview with Barbara Walters within the year. I will not 
release all information until that interview. If I am not proven 
guilty, upon release I will become a Catholic priest.

"This is not an admission of guilt. However, it is a statement 
about the persecution which the Catholic people face. The 
Catholic people are being persecuted in the workplace as well as 
in a whole. There are leaders in government, both local, state 
and federal, which are well aware of the abuse taking place.

Welfare laws are set up to assist a certain group of people but 
does not benefit all U.S. citizens if they need assistance. None 
of the Catholic people would lose their homes if welfare laws 
were reformed. Why should a woman without a husband be able to 
collect if a couple who is married and needs assistance can't 
get help? These welfare laws seek to break up the family unit.

What the Catholic Church needs to do is to start printing a 
currency so that individuals who work and make minimum wage can 
have a supplement to their incomes so that their families will 
have what they need. We're talking about making sure the 
Catholic people have the basic necessities in life. That would 
be a roof over their heads, food, clothing and a little bit more 
job security.

Things appear as though they were all well and fine but things 
are not. Young couples who do not receive assistance cannot 
afford the necessities in life. Not everyone can have the "Top 
Position" but that does not mean that the less fortunate should 
be forced to settle for minimum wage without welfare 

There is a movement in society which seeks the destruction of 
the church. One method these individuals use is to buy up 
companies, corporations and businesses after which putting 
themselves out of business and-or laying off Catholic employees. 
This layoff procedure for Catholics occurs to a great extent in 
the U.S. school systems, police departments, fire departments, 
etc. The Catholic Church is being floored financially.

Why do the Free Masons persecute the Catholic people? Because 
they're good at it. The Catholic Church is dealing with a group 
of people who are intelligent, mean, nasty and judicious. These 
individuals run society and have a good system for themselves 
but seek to keep the Catholic Church from printing a currency 
and having the same system. In a nutshell, if you can't collect, 
you're a little bit screwed. You may do well, but will your 
children? Just because you're well employed, does that mean that 
your children will have a secured future? If the Catholic Church 
had a welfare system, each member would be assured a decent life.

Power is a funny thing. One man is very powerful, yes or no. A 
man has the power you give him. If 20 million people stand when 
one man says stand, and if 20 million people sit when one man 
says sit, then the Catholic Church will have what they need -- a 
currency. Think about giving a pope that kind of power.

The Catholic Church is a government within a government only it 
does not print money as most governments do. What makes sense 
about asking a congregation for 10 percent of their incomes when 
you could save the people by offering them 40 percent of an 
average income to compensate an insufficient wage?

The Catholic Church needs to start realizing that depressions 
are not correlated to a time period but have to do with lack of 
Christian leadership. Why should there be a depression every 60 
years or a war? Can this be prevented? To a great extent, yes. 
We as a people need to turn our minds away from individual 
thinking and more to the church as a whole, the country as a 
whole. It would take brain cells on behalf of the Catholic 
people to do it. Wake up, people, and smell success in a church 
which is not successful. Take tips from the Masons and Masonic 
temple on how to live good and have the things you need. Do what 
they do so as to be successful. Written from Norfolk City Jail 
on 1-4-95 after refusing to eat tampered food for four days.

They won at Norfolk City Jail, I received ham and two pieces of 
Wonder bread that had been tampered with. I ate it anyway, 
although I could hardly get it down. (The ham smelled like 
oranges). The next morning I was served breakfast which 
consisted of two eggs scrambled, one piece of toast and grits 
that turned my stomach and I began to get sick.

The grits appeared to have semen in them, or commonly called 
cum. I ate the grits anyway. However, it turned my stomach and I 
began to get sick.

By the time supper rolled around I was sick. The guards then 
served me chicken with rice and I ate it as well. Four hours 
later I fell asleep. By about 1:30 at night I began vomiting 
severely for approximately 10 hours. As well as vomiting, I also 
had diarrhea, blurry vision and terrible intestinal pain.

I was placed in a cell with no cold water and I was deprived of 
a cup. At this point I refused to eat any more and I have not 
eaten in the past four days. Dr. Shephard of the Norfolk County 
Correctional performed a physical on me and took blood and urine 
samples to analyze so as to verify the means of tampering.
