You have quite a few people pulling for your success even a few who you might perceived as antagonists. But I think that here your peppercorn response is a serious misstep and one that leaves the SOJ and their involvement in your well produced series vulnerable to closer scrutiny.RMG1976 wrote:Thanks for the well wishes, we all appreciate that.Choto wrote:"I was successful in building a strong and fantastic relationship with the Society of Jesus.....in regard to the stone maps and this story. I cant tell you what an honor it is for me to be in that position. The Church has never taken a position, publicly, on "treasure"....until now."
This is a truly incredible statement that, without specificity, could be interpreted many different ways. Especially among amateur historians like myself. Since the SOJ has now gone public, would you please share the name of the individual (the SOJ representative) taking that "position"?
The statement deserves a little clarity on this Good Friday as it tends to paint the SOJ as dishonest.
Not sure that is entirely fair.
Anyway, best of luck with your project.
It is an incredible thing and still something I am very happy about.
I am very excited for each of you to learn not only about the true story of Travis Tumlinson, but also the true story of his involvement with the Church and their involvement in what we are doing. I believe most will also be curious about the stone maps and how they came into creation.
You're right, it would be unfair for me to keep all of this secret. That has never been mine / our goal. Which is why I have chosen to tell this story to the world - in a very well produced series.
You will get all the answers you desire.
I will leave you be and reach out to the local Provincial.
