"Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops, like bishops, and your religious act like religious." - Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, 1972
SWORN STATEMENT - IT'S TIME TO TAKE THE GLOVES OFF
Posted by Tim
In my post HELL NO TO THIS FILTHY BISHOP (11/3/16), exposing the Vatican slap down of Apuron's attempt to get rid of Archbishop Hon, I referenced sources that I chose not to publish. Instead I concluded my post with the following:
I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.
TIMOTHY J. ROHR
These words turn my post into a sworn statement. Additionally, I copied the post to a document bearing my signature above my name which you can find here.
A sworn statement, a declaration under penalty of perjury, means that I understand that my statement can be used in a court of law and that I can go to jail if what I stated isn't true.
I specifically chose to make such a statement rather than publish the documents because I do not want to compromise the documents should they be requested in a court proceeding nor do I want endanger my sources.
In fact, a sworn statement authenticates a document even more than the actual publication of the document itself since merely publishing a document creates no legal culpability as does a statement made under penalty of perjury.
One commenter insisted that I publish the documents. I have published many documents. If I choose not to publish a document then I have good reason not to. This was the case with the referenced post. Knowing that my credibility would be questioned, I offered something even more credible, a statement under penalty of perjury.
I have created a tab above where I will link future statements. I am willing to go to court and prove all I know if and when the time comes. My enemies know this, which is why they can only ridicule me personally from behind their anonymous rocks.
My challenge to those who visit The Diana is to demand she do the same: declare under penalty of perjury that what she says is true and correct. She won't of course. But then that will tell you who is telling the truth and who isn't.
It's time to take the gloves off and call liars liars. Tim Rohr is willing to stand before a court of law and testify under penalty of perjury to everything I have ever posted on this blog. Let's see if The Diana will do the same.
