Your answer
Wiccan Arbirtation:
The officers of WiccanSeminary.EDU are Wiccan and follow Wiccan Law. Any claim or dispute arising from this agreement shall be settled by Wiccan Law. A complete text of the rules is available at http://www.sacred-texts.com/bos/bos259.htm The parties (WSTS and the Applicant) agree that these methods shall be the sole remedy for any controversy or claim arising out of this agreement and expressly waive their right to file a lawsuit in any civil court against one another for such disputes, except to enforce an arbitration decision. The Aquarian Tabernacle Church, its affiliate congregations and the Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary, which is part of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church International, all are hierarchical religious organizations. This means that according to the US Supreme Court in Watson vs Jones (1871) and upheld in Presbyterian Church in the United States v. Mary Elizabeth Blue Hull Memorial Presbyterian Church (1969) and Serbian Eastern Orthodox Diocese v. Milivojevich (1976) that “ federal courts should not become involved in determining which faction is adhering more closely to traditional church doctrine or decisions based on said doctrine. Instead, the high court found that federal courts should determine whether the congregation has a hierarchical structure. In a congregational church their decisions are under federal jurisdiction but decisions of a heirarchical church are outside of the jurisdiction of the United States of America”, and protected by the Constitution of the United States of America” , therefore the civil authorities have NO jurisdiction over the acceptance of candidates, hiring, firing, training or even property disputes between individuals and church bodies who come under the authority of a hierarchical church. It is also incumbent on the candidate to understand that as part of the decision of Presbyterian Church in the United States v. Mary Elizabeth Blue Hull Memorial Presbyterian Church (1969) , this applies to STATE courts as well. Therefore, Any claims arising from the use of Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary services must be brought within twelve (12) months of the date upon which the party claiming becomes aware of the claim and must abide by the decision of the Board and officers of the Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary.
