Apology to Dr. Edward Peters

I’ve removed my earlier post ‘Canon Law, Ed Peters and me’.
There were a number of problems which, when brought to my attention, I agree were problematical on my part, and I apologize to Dr. Peters:
– I don’t know what previous experiences Dr. Peters has had with the LC/RC, therefore I have no business speculating on whether he was surprised by revelations about Fr. Maciel.
– It referred to a private conversation that I initiated. This was unprofessional on my part, and I offer no excuses. Especially when I reported that he did not seem to concerned about our differences, which I had no business reporting or speculating upon.
– In so doing I suggested more familiarity between us than is the case, as we have never met in real life or worked on any canon law project together.
– Dr. Peters was not calling for the suppression and reconstitution of the LC/RC, but is suggesting it as a possibility.
Additionally, while I believe I reported accurately when I said Dr. Peters’ response tended to focus more on the structural problems these revelations suggest, whereas I was asking more the question what do we do with current LC/RC members, I in no way was implying or intended to imply that Dr. Peters is not equally concerned about what to do with these people.
Therefore I apologize again to Dr. Peters. There is no excuse for this lapse in professional judgment, and I pray I have not tarnished Dr. Peters’ reputation in any way.

  1. Many of us commit mistakes and we are sorry for it. Just like our government who recently did so many misleads decision that result into economic downturn. But because we are the main concerns who suffer most, how can we forgive if every now and then our leaders do bad things us by means of corruption and other devious acts. In relation to our economy issues, the demand for unsecured personal loans is at an all time high. Unsecured personal loans are loans made without the backing of collateral. Your average bank won’t make them, definitely not during times like these. There are other options, though, for those who don’t want to go to a normal lending institution where they know they’ll be turned down. You can get unsecured personal loans through payday loan companies. If you just need a cash advance loan, you can apply for an unsecured personal loan. The best ways to survive in this time of recession it to minimize unwanted expenses, and try to budget your income so you wouldn’t depend more to many kinds of loans and payday cashes not unless you really need it.
