HUMPTY DUMPTY AND THE NEOCATS

  
Posted by Bob

From time to time Tim is faced with the unenviable task of attempting to correct mistatements emanating from the neocats. Many of these mistatements deal with the meanings of words. Tim is a great teacher, as all of us who follow JungleWatch know, but as we also know neocats have their own ways of defining words. I suspect that Humpty Dumpty is the authority they look to.

Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. ... "When I use a word,"Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."


Here's an example:

Dear Anonymous at 9:28 pm,

I have already proven that a seminary can be a corporation sole with a Board of Directors. St. John Seminary is a corporation sole with the Archbishop of Los Angeles as the corporate sole. See the weblink below:

There is the evidence. A seminary can be a corporation sole. RMS is also a corporation sole. So, you see...Rohr was wrong when he told you that ONLY an Archdiocese is a corporation sole.



Even if a "seminary" in California could be a corporation sole (it can't because corporation sole are actual persons), the laws of one state cannot be imposed on another. Guam has its own laws, and a corporation sole is defined as follows:

§ 10102. Religious Corporations. Corporation sole.
For the administration of the temporalities of any religious
denomination, society, or church, and the management of the estates and
properties thereof, it shall be lawful for the bishop, chief priest, or presiding
elder of any such religious denomination, society, or church to become a
corporation sole unless inconsistent with the rules, regulations, or discipline
of his religious denomination, society, or church or forbidden by competent
authority thereof.

A corporation sole is an actual person (the religious leader) NOT, an institution.
Tim's comment is another in a series meant to dispel the disinformation campaign neocats use to promote the fiction that a sole incorporator is a corporation sole. In order to surmount the neocat  Humpty Dumpty wall I'll try using pictures to make the point that a sole incorporator is not a corporation sole.

Sole is a fish belonging to several families. Generally speaking, they are members of the family Soleidae, but, outside Europe, the name sole is also applied to various other similar flatfish, especially other members of the sole suborder Soleoidei as well as members of the flounder family.

Archbishop Byrnes is our corporation sole.

18 GCA § 10102. Religious Corporations. Corporation sole. For the administration of the temporalities of any religious denomination, society, or church, and the management of the estates and properties thereof, it shall be lawful for the bishop, chief priest, or presiding elder of any such religious denomination, society, or church to become a corporation sole unless inconsistent with the rules, regulations, or discipline of his religious denomination, society, or church or forbidden by competent authority thereof.

18 GCA § 10101. Nonprofit Corporations. Any number of persons, associated together for any lawful purpose other than pecuniary profit, may incorporate their said association, as provided in this Chapter.   [Sole incorporator=one person starting a corporation. "Any number" can mean 1 to .]

   § 10101 allows for a single incorporator, i.e. a sole incorporator! NB a sole incorporator is about as similar to a corporation sole as the fish you had for dinner is to the bottom of your foot! Even Humpty Dumpty can understand the difference.
