Well, why can't you find this info online yourself? The priests name is signed right there on the letter itself. The letter clearly states that that the story (or haunting) was a false report. This is directly from the Rockville centre diocese itself - the church!...Or do we need official notification from the Vatican now just to satisfy you?Regardless, it's still not what I asked for in the first place, nor is it an official statement about the Church's stance on the subject--it's a letter allegedly sent from one priest on behalf of the Bishop...a letter sent to parties still as of yet unknown to us, since you still haven't posted a link to where we can find this letter for ourselves, told us who the letter was sent to, or what your source is.
Of one man? Its a reverend from the church itself, in fact the assistant vicar general of the church making this official statement in a signed letter. Again maintaing the story (or haunting) was a false report. Now since you are maintaining that it would be incorrect to assume that the church doesn't believe it to be a false report for some reason. For "gods" sake simply supply us with something that refutes this letter or the "churches", better yet the Rockville dioceses own assistant vicar generals "official" position on the matter.That's not an official statement of the Church's position, or anything close. It's the alleged unofficial opinion of one man...and the fact that he sent an article from "Newsday" in lieu of anything official from the Church is just an example him effectively dodging the question.
You can't do that, you can't offer anything at all except your paragraph picking tactics to accuse somebody of making broad generalizations. I have offered the full name and rank of this official within the church itself along with a written statement signed by him.
(thats not a broad generalization, thats a detailed account of a high ranking official within the diocese itself claiming the haunting reports were false. lol)
So if you can't offer anything into the discussion other than your own word play and opinions. Maybe you should give somebody else a chance that is familiar a little bit more with the direct subject matter, 'cause obviously you aren't.
