Liam Goligher’s statement to Tenth Presbyterian

Page 1

Dear Ones: Over the past few days terrible allegations have been raised against me on social media. I reject the interpretation that has been put on the facts. What they have insinuated never happened, though I take full responsibility for the actions that led to the outcome. However, once such accusations are made they develop a life of their own and no one will countenance them being challenged. The actual events leading to these allegations were entirely my fault and I take responsibility for my foolish behavior. Years ago, I had an encounter with an officer, which ended in a citation for personal conduct. This involved failure to follow his instructions in a timely manner and arguing with him over his construction of events. In retrospect, I deeply regret not contesting the citation. Instead, I followed his advice and opted to pay a fine. By doing this, it was my understanding that I had admitted to the above actions but not to anything else. I am devastated at the prospect of leaving you in this way. It has been the greatest joy of my life to worship with you and live life with you over these years. I love you desperately and don’t want you to have to endure the burden of these allegations and the interminable questions they will raise. I am totally responsible for the unconscionable foolishness that led us here. Christine and I will forever love you and thank God for you, our church family."
