The Letter Without Signatures

A chronology attesting to false witness committed at Christ Church : From Poohsthink.com “In December 1993, the CEF elders refused to sign a letter of apology drafted by Doug Wilson. On the night of March 4, 2003, during a HOH [Head of Household] meeting, Doug Jones bore witness that the CEF elders did in fact sign the letter without signatures. Doug Wilson knew that Doug Jones bore false witness, and Wilson failed to correct the record. Exactly 22 days later, the E Free elders asked Christ Church for a signed copy of the letter. Christ Church never answered or even acknowledged this request.  Now Wilson calls his false witness a “mistake.” Yesterday [February 15, 2006] he blogged, “But as soon as the mistake was pointed out, we realized the mistake, apologized, and dropped it.” You be the judge. Pin the tail on the point in time when Wilson & Jones learned of their ‘mistake’ and ‘apologized.’
