.- The Diocese of Dallas has confirmed that Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers is not Catholic; neither did she receive any of the sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church.
The diocese reviewed its records after the media reported that the longtime Dallas lawyer reported that she had attended Catholic mass as a child. Acquaintances of Miers had also said she worshipped as a Catholic and attended Episcopalian and Presbyterian services.
Records show, however, that for 25 years, Miers has been a congregant at Valley View Christian Church. Recently, she and about 150 of the church's members formed a separate congregation after a disagreement about worship styles.
The White House has said Miers attends St. John's Episcopal Church, located across from the White House where President George Bush often worships, when she is in Washington.
