RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)Notice that the commenter never addressed the "real" issues. The real issue is that the law firm of Lew Roca Rothgerber LLP had concluded in their report that "the corporate governance structure of Redemptoris Mater showed...that the Archbishop of Agana retains substantial authority over Redemptoris Mater, as the Archbisop is the sole member of the entity under civil incorporation laws, presides over the governing boards, has the power to appoint the governing boards, the power to amend the civil governing documents and is the Ordinary under canon law with specific authority over the entity as prescribed in the Canonical Statutes and under canon law." In addition, the law firm in Denver took into consideration Guam's civil laws as well as the canon law of the Church when they concluded their report. This is the "real" issue, which the commenter avoided.
The same thing was true with the St. John's Seminary in California. Under this blog, I pointed out that the St. John's Seminary in California is a corporation sole with a board of directors. It is also under the Archdiocese of Los Angeles with the Archbishop of Los Angeles as the corporate sole. This is the same situation as the RM seminary on Guam. Tim Rohr's excuse is that the St. John's Seminary is not a corporation. This is incorrect. I also pointed out under this blog that St. John's seminary is a corporation. After that, one does not hear anything from the jungle about St. John's seminary being filed as a corporation. The issue was avoided. It is the same with the comment above.
It was much easier to label the RM seminary as not being part of the Catholic Church on Guam than to deal with the "real" issues. For example, they have no response as to why the official name of the seminary has "Archdiocese of Agana" attached to it in its Articles of Incorporation. Radicals avoid responding to the "real" issues and only make meaningless and irrelevant arguments that are not even worth getting into.
Now, that the Certificate of Titles were provided, they are making up another story about the Archdiocese "leasing" the property to RMS. If Teri's story is true, then please provide the lease contract.
