If the parties involved signed a confidentiality agreement, then the document in question is confidential. If they did not, then the document has an unwarranted expectation of confidentiality. If there has been a break in at Christ Church's offices, then the document was stolen. If there was not, then the word you are looking for is "leaked."

If pastoral confidentiality was breached, I apologize, though I had nothing at all to do with it. I might note, however, that no part of the document containing pastoral council was released by CK. CK may or may not have parts of the document containing pastoral council.

The fact is that Paul Kimmell did not recuse himself from decisions regarding Christ Church at a time when he had a financial stake in Church prosperity. Then, as everyone involved admits, his pastor claims that he is "open to oversight" on "some matters," which is to say that, in his capacity as commissioner, he acts as an agent of the Church.

This entire matter carries more than just a whiff of iniquity.

Please excuse Wayne. He's a little paranoid.

But the number of sock puppets that've joined the discussion puts a little on edge. The ratio of real to pseudonymous Christ Church members that've joined the list in the past six months is just about 1:1.

The debate about the Christ Church -- even that part of the debate which must occur in BoE meetings and court -- is fine with me. Christ Church affects our property taxes. It affects our community image. It affects our community identiy. It is all of our concern.

What is, however, inexcuseable, are the attacks on anyone who has become bored with Christ Church discussion.

Oh, nonsense.
