WHY NOT THE GOVERNOR?

 Letter to the editor

Nurse can satisfy abortion requirement

https://www.postguam.com/forum/letter_to_the_editor/nurse-can-satisfy-abortion-requirement/article_5b89b884-388e-11ed-a0fb-3b7ae751f473.html

The published letter is copied below with links added for references. 

The ACLU’s argument in its suit against the Government of Guam is that in-person consultation relative to Guam’s law requiring informed consent for abortion prevents the administration of “medication abortion through telemedicine.” (Guam Daily Post, Sept. 19, 2022)

The law requires that certain information be provided to a woman seeking an abortion, and be provided in person by the attending physician or by another qualified person.

The only reason telemedicine is necessary, and thus the suit, is because no doctor on Guam, including those who publicly support abortion access, are willing to provide the required information to women.

But the law says by a physician “or another qualified person.” So why not a nurse? In fact, why not Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero, a registered nurse?

This is a perfect campaign opportunity for the governor.

There is no other issue that she is more publicly passionate about. And given no physician or other qualified person is willing to do it, by providing this service to women, she will lead by example and save the government many thousands of dollars by avoiding a lawsuit.

Recently obtained reports show that there have been approximately 3 abortions per month via telemedicine. The governor could easily fit in 3 hours per month to meet with the women she says she cares about.

APPELLANT'S OPENING BRIEF IN THE ACLU MATTER

Deputy Attorney General James Canto II's Brief is excellent and should be read by anyone who cares about presenting solid arguments for life in the womb. 

It is not necessary to "throw religious bombs." They don't work anyway. And they don't work because the pro-aborts are expecting them and ready to discard them with their usual "separation of church and state" rhetoric. 

Pray, yes. But work to win by knowing how to craft legal arguments, and just as important, learn how to present those arguments in a strategic way. 

The Esperansa Project, between 2008 and 2016, initiated and shepherded eight bills regulating abortion that were enacted into law by staying away from religious and even scientific arguments and focusing on legal precedent and shaping public opinion...as well as exposing what was going on behind closed doors in the legislature.

AUGUST 27,2022. AN IMPORTANT DATE FOR LIFE ON GUAM

Posted by Frenchie



Almost 4 years ago this week, a monumental event took place in the Primary Election, for our beautiful island of Guam.

The race between Senator Aguon, a staunch defender of the unborn, and former Senator Lou Leon Guerrero-Cook, the most radical pro abortion advocate in the history of our territory; turned to the advantage of the pro death candidate by a mere 300 votes. 

Our Home Island, which is still 85% Catholic, and 97% Christian chose a candidate for the Democratic Party, who was an unabashed activist for the death of innocent children.



By November 2018, Lou Leon Guerrero-Cook defeated the tainted Republican candidate and his running mate, after a lackluster campaign, where the Bank executive, and richest person on island was omnipresent, in all the local medias, thanks to a network of internet Bots, complacent local written and TV medias.

We even saw the local AM morning talk show Host Patty Arroyo unilaterally side with LLG, while her sister who at the time was a key member of the now defunct Catholic Radio, accepted the post of Press secretary for the candidate. I guess these ladies don't understand the concept of "Conflict of Interests", while also joining the disjointed Catholics who pretend to be pro-life, but don't wish to "impose their personal point of view on the public at large"(aka hypocrits extraordinaire)

How had we arrived to such a disastrous situation?

*First of all: as the old American adage reminds us : "Money walks, and BS talks"

The huge amount of money poured in the race by LLG had never been seen in the history of this island.

Basically the CEO of the Bank of Guam bought her way to the top of the Democratic Party ticket.

*Second, as the DNC did on the mainland, the LLG Campaign allied itself with the radicals on the island, who voted massively for her in the primary, and in the main election. The Cabal of the pro-independence movement, smartly disguised as the movement for decolonization, with its fiercely anti-catholic leaders such as Won Pat, Bevacqua, Underwood, Cristobal, Perez, and Marsh "Taitano". These people often conveniently wearing the Ecologist Hat, of the wacko radicals, specially when it comes to items inside the wire, are not many. Perhaps 5 to 6 thousands, but they are dedicated  and virulent. During the primary they became essential to putting the current governor over the line, against Aguon. The Choice of an openly gay running mate also brought to the LLG camp single issue voters lured by the fake inclusive camp.

*Third, the Republican Candidate was not only damaged goods going in the process, but he and his running mate did not run a viable campaign. They did not attack Lou on the many items where she is weak and/or contradicting herself. Most interestingly, they totally failed to call her on her stance for abortion, cleverly disguised as "a woman health issue" (as if killing an innocent child is a health issue) Only did they mention anything on the subject, just days before the final vote.  Way too little and too late.

*Fourth and last. That is the Elephant in the room. The newly minted Archbishop of Agatna was totally absent in the process. His right hand man at the time (Fr Richards) came up with the lame excuse that they could not risk the Church Tax exemption Status. We strongly criticized that sitting on the fence at the time in these pages, but the clergy sat that one out. Not only did they sit it out, but they brow beated the few brave ladies who dared raise the issue. The pro life movement had been rendered muted and mutted by a volontary lack of leadership.

What did we learned from this disastrous election cycle 4 years ago?

We learned several things:

1: Do not count on the local media to give you an unbiased point of view, based on facts, not fiction.

2: Do not count on our local religious leaders to help you make the right moral choice.

3: Do your own research about each candidate, Do not be influenced by fancy advertising

4: Learn how to read between the lines, of the double talk of the politicians.

If you do not want your personal values to be hijacked by anti family, anti religious, and immoral special interests activist groups,  become an informed and responsible member of the community by choosing people to represent you, that share your beliefs.

YOU KNOW TROUBLE IS COMING, WHEN YOUR ALLIES START TO COME AT YOU.

 (posted by Frenchie)



Bishop Barron the very mediatic, some say charismatic (in the secular sense) Auxilliary Bishop of Los Angeles. A cleric present on almost any form of media, the founder and promoter of the successful program "Word on fire", was recently elevated to the title of  Bishop of the Winona- Rochester Diocese (South East Minnesota), by Pope Francis.

Many speculated that this promotion, might be a punishment in disguise, for being too successful, and at times too independent from his brother bishops of the USCCB. It has been heard in some corridors that some of the more radical leftist members of the USCCB, who have grown extremely wealthy from their unholy alliance with very controversial "Catholic" members of the Democratic party; were particularly unhappy with some of his positions, as well as his large reach into the Catholic Online Community.



The Church receiving literally billions of dollars from the federal government, through its social services, like Catholic Charities and a multitude of other charities groups, for handling the flow of illegal immigrants and other social re organisation outfits. This has in turn created large fiefdoms in Archdioceses in large urban areas. This was spearheaded by former Cardinal of Washington DC, Mc Carrick, who has been disgraced 4 years ago,following a set of revelations about his long and depraved life of sexual abuse.

None the less, former Cardinal Mc Carrick had a long and successful path, thanks to his ability to raise funds, and his hobnobbing with important politicians on the East Coast. Facts that he was able to parley into his own promotion at the Vatican, and a high profile which allowed him to become a de-facto King maker within the USCCB. This is how he promoted a sizeable group of Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals.

Most importantly he made sure to grow near every "Catholic" politico in Washington DC, including but not limited to  Nancy Pelosi and Joseph Biden. There was a definite tit for tat, with all these powerful political figures, which ultimately led to an embarrassing silence from most of US Bishops when said politicos drifted further and further to the left, on most social issues, including gay marriage and of course Abortion.

These corrupted relationships have led us to where we are now, with the current Cardinal of DC, a protege of Mc Carrick refusing to even criticize the president of the USA when he wraps himself in his "Catholic faith" to support Abortion, which even our extremely liberal Pope calls a sin of the gravest kind.

This why is was particularly surprising to read in the Pilot, the official paper of the Archdiocese of Boston a stirring column by the newly minted Bishop of Winona-Rochester, denouncing the scandalous position of the President of the United States...

The surprise is even bigger because it happened with the obvious authorization of Cardinal O'Malley, another liberal prince of the Church, who also is one of the biggest backer of the NCW.

This is a welcome development, even if I don't hold my breath waiting for a change of attitude from the Bishops of the USCCB, towards the scandalous positions of our so called Catholic politicos.

Here on Guam, we are still to hear any form of criticism from our Church leaders about the continuous, arrogant and scandalous promotion of abortion by Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, and some of the key members of her administration.

We know that Archbishop Byrnes initiated a first step, with a personal and private letter to the governor, demanding that she mend her ways on the subject. In the meantime, nothing has happened. As the Archbishop is off island, with no plan to come back, we certainly should not expect much from our chancery.

HMMMM...

The Archdiocese of Detroit (Latin: Archidiœcesis Detroitensis) is a Latin Church ecclesiastical territory or archdiocese of the Catholic Church covering the Michigan counties of Lapeer, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, and Wayne. It is the metropolitan archdiocese of the Ecclesiastical Province of Detroit, which includes all dioceses in the state of Michigan. In addition, in 2000 the archdiocese accepted pastoral responsibility[2] for the Catholic Church in the Cayman Islands, which consists of Saint Ignatius Parish[3] on Grand Cayman (the Archdiocese of Kingston maintains a mission sui iuris jurisdiction over the Cayman Islands).[4] -LINK

A NEW SEMINARY IN ANOTHER U.S. TERRITORY?

This post continues to draw the most views by far. 



We have no evidence yet that the continued interest in O'Malley, at least on this blog, has anything to do with what appears to be O'Malley's renewed push to establish another Redemptoris Mater seminary in another U.S. Territory to replace Guam's.

But...

Earlier this year, a youngish, bearded priest, with a thick Spanish accent showed up at Holy Cross parish in Christiansted, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Another priest confirmed that the new priest was from Boston and had been sent to St. Croix by O'Malley, the archbishop of Boston, and host to a Redemptoris Mater seminary. The priest also confirmed that the Spanish priest from Boston was "in the Neo." 

O'Malley formerly was the archbishop of the Virgin Islands but has no authority there now. So it was curious how O'Malley could "assign" a priest from his diocese to the diocese of the Virgin Islands. The timing was curious given that a new bishop, originally from Africa, was appointed bishop of the Virgin Islands and was said to be very supportive, if not enthusiastic, about the Neocatechumenal Way. 

And then the Spanish priest from Boston shows up. 

After a few weeks in Christiansted, the Spanish priest moved to St. Ann's Parish in Barronspot, St. Croix, a parish known for its departure from tradition and its pentecostal type worship. A perfect place to grow "the Neo." 

Given that Guam closed down the Redemptoris Mater Seminary here and the Neo-controlled Apuron ran away, it appears that O'Malley and friends are looking to replace what they had in Guam with a new foothold in the Virgin Islands with a bishop who, like Apuron, will either do their bidding or at least not get in the way.

WHISTLE BLOWER CARMELITE?

 Kandit News just posted this story:

Whistleblower Carmelite....



Something was never quite right about "Dawn Marie's" stated reason for departing Guam after fifty years. 

“As (Mother Dawn) Marie tells it, the decision to relocate came after a series of events that eventually resulted in what she called a ‘toxic environment’ that made it too difficult for the nuns to continue in their way of life.” - Pang, Neil. “‘Toxic Environment,’ Carmelites explain departure from Guam.” Guam Daily Post. Nov. 16, 2016

Really? 

Isn’t the whole charism of contemplative orders such as the Carmelites to war against the “toxic environment” of this fallen world by their very presence and way of life in the very midst of the “toxic environment” left us by the fall of our first parents?

Isn't this the reason "our" Carmelites were invited to Guam in the first place in 1966?

And the “environment” of the Catholic Church in Guam was NEVER more “toxic” than it was in 2016 when the accusations against Apuron first began to surface: casting Guam's Catholic Church into its deepest and most terrible, "toxic" crisis. 

And it was in the midst of this CRISIS that the same "Dawn Marie" abandoned Guam and all its Faithful, many of whom (and their families) had sacrificially supported "our" Carmelites for decades. 

And:

Why is Mother Dawn now in Neocat-friendly Boston and NOT with her nuns...the nuns from Guam who she appears to have abandoned to (dumped at) a "home" in California:

“After 50 years of prayer for the island's faithful, the Carmelite order celebrated their final mass on June 14 of this year and, the next day, left for their new home in California, Marie said yesterday.” - ibid

As their prioress, Mother Dawn was consecrated to protect and provide for those nuns, many of whom are long-suffering daughters of Guam, and who were given no voice about their uprooting and being deposited and ultimately abandoned (by Dawn) on the other side of the world. 

But now "Dawn" is running free in neocat-friendly Boston. 

Why?

LETTER: ABORTION SUPPORTERS NEED NEW STRAW MAN

Recently, in a letter published in this paper, a well-known local physician asserted that abortion “should be the right to a personal choice and not prohibited by a government pushed by religious fanatics … ”

The belief that religion is the motivation behind anti-abortion legislation in Guam is unsubstantiated and untrue. CONTINUED
