Dear Rev. White,
Thank you very much. I appreciate that and I would like to send you a corrected copy of my Petition for Review of the Investigative Committee Decision Not to File Charges. I assure you that these corrections do not have any substantive changes but only changes of a minor typographical nature. It is attached. I think you will find it much more readable.
Sincerely,
Ron Avery

Thank you for the correction.

 

As I have noted, you have been informed that the next step is underway. You will next be contacted on behalf of Mission Presbytery’s Permanent Judicial Commission, as they move forward in their work.

Dear Rev. White,

 

Pardon me. But I thought you said in your email "When they make a ruling as to the propriety of receiving your appeal, then you will be notified as to the next steps." I took this mean that the Permanent Judicial Committee would first determine my "standing within the PCUSA and Mission Presbytery and a decision regarding the process to this point," and then you would notify me of the next steps. I guess you later realized that you had sent me a flow chart via the Investigative Committee. Is that what you are referring to?  

Now I must protest any meetings in which evidence is provided and received without my presence that would show I lack standing to bring this Accusation and Statement of Offense or appeal of the Investigative Committee decision not to file charges at this time. I believe I can show evidence supporting my standing to bring this appeal. I can only think of several issues that could challenge my standing with the proper evidence:

 

1.      Evidence to suggest that I am not a member of First Presbyterian Church in Seguin, Texas. I can show evidence that I am:

1.1.   an active member in compliance with G-5.0202;

1.2.   a faithful member in accord with all the responsibilities listed in G-5.0102

2.      Evidence to suggest that First Presbyterian Church in Seguin, Texas is not part of the Mission Presbytery;

2.1.   I doubt that anyone would challenge this.

3.      Evidence to suggest that I have not done something or completed doing something at a lower level that must be concluded prior to bringing my Accusation and appeal of the Investigative Committee decision not to file charges:

3.1.   Evidence to suggest that I first filed or started something with the Session which has not been concluded:

3.1.1.      Any filings I made with the Session were filed in the wrong place and the Session has no authority to receive an Accusation against its pastor.

3.1.2.      Any filings with the Session should have been immediately forwarded by the Session to Mission Presbytery which I accomplished in a timely fashion by making it part of my Accusation and Statement of Offense filed with Mission Presbytery;

3.1.3.      Even though I have asked the Session to do things on its own to lift my censure of censorship they have never replied and in fact again have no authority over my complaint or Accusation to do so.

3.1.4.      I have no Accusation or complaint against the Session which would constitute a “remedial” complaint rather than a “disciplinary” complaint inapplicable herein.

3.1.5.      The Session will not and cannot be a part of this Accusation.

 

Finally, reviews of jurisdiction and standing have more to do with “remedial” complaints than with “disciplinary cases” as these reviews of “standing” are only provided for under “remedial case” rules D-6.0300 (especially D-6.0305). No provisions for a review of standing, jurisdiction, exhaustion of lower level requirements, relief that can be granted, and relationship, etc., etc. are to be found under “disciplinary case” rules.

Simply stated there are no provisions for a review of “standing” of any kind under “disciplinary case” rules D-10 and D-11. My Accusation and Statement of Offense is a “disciplinary case” with no provisions for considering the “propriety” of receiving my appeal. I hope you will forward this letter to the Permanent Judicial Committee and that they will take this into account in their review of my standing with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and Mission Presbytery as you indicated they would conduct such a review.

I look forward to hearing from you and reading the Investigative Committee Response to my Petition for Review of their decision not to file charges. I am happy to be a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) that provides a process to maintain church justice and progress the work of Christ Jesus in the world. I have no doubt that justice will be achieved in my case and that my unlawful censure of censorship will be lifted that I may continue to serve Christ Jesus who has placed a burden upon me to deliver the truth concerning all the events of 911 and the resultant consequences that the church may be protected and its members live in peace and safety expanding the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ronald F. Avery

Dear Rev. Miles White,

This "first review" that will involve my "standing" within the PCUSA and Mission Presbytery sounds like a matter of jurisdiction based upon the proof of the fact that I am a member of First Presbyterian Church in Seguin, Texas. I believe that has been established beyond any reasonable doubt. I also believe it strange that this issue would come up after the Investigative Committee has issued a letter of decision not to file charges. The matter of standing should have been addressed long before a long extensive investigation. Therefore I expect to hear from you shortly regarding the "next steps." I know and have faith and confidence that the Mission Presbytery will act with honesty as ministers and representatives of Christ Jesus for he too will judge in this matter.

Sincerely,

Ronald F. Avery

Mr. Avery:

 

I am in receipt of your request for review of the Investigating Committee’s action. I am in the process of convening Mission Presbytery’s Permanent Judicial Commission to consider your request. The first review will involve your standing within the PCUSA and Mission Presbytery and a decision regarding the process to this point.

 

When they make a ruling as to the propriety of receiving your appeal, then you will be notified as to the next steps.

Dear Rev. White,

 

Please find attached my Petition for Review by the Permanent Judicial Committee of the Investigative Committee Decision Not to File Charges against Rev. Dr. Carl McCauley. I have sent the same by mail but I thought I would go ahead and email you a digital copy.
