DON'T WE DESERVE BETTER THAN A BUNCH OF AMATEURS??

A follow up on our story on KOLG's manager conflict of interest.

One might think that the people responsible at the Chancery for the integrity of their offices would take things seriously .
Unfortunately it does not seem to be the case.

Pale Mike, who was just voted best parish priest in the Pika yearly survey, apparently does not have much common sense.
Surely he is a nice guy, but we need leaders, not nice guys.

As the go to, responsible for KOLG, Pale Mike should have asked Therese Arroyo Matanane, the general manager of the island's Catholic radio station, for her immediate resignation, as soon as he was made aware of her decision to take a paid position as Press secretary for the Campaign of Lou Leon Guerrero.

Instead nothing happened.
Even when members of the staff threatened to quit over the issue, the reaction of the Chancery was a lackluster series of attempt at covering their butt.
A first meeting was cancelled at the last minute, and finally when this blog exposed the whole disaster, another meeting was convened, which did not amount to much.


I guess 30 years of Apuron's leadership cannot be wiped out overnight.
The Best thing Father Mike, Tony Diaz (the communication director) and Paul Fisher (the Chancellor) could come up with was that Mrs Mantanane was on a leave of absence.

MORE CONFLICT OF INTEREST ON THE LLG CAMPAIGN????

This past Sunday, hundreds of courageous souls braved the inclement weather  (some had to face biblical rainfall, while others had to find relief from a pounding Sun) to be counted in the fight against that barbaric plague (but often portrayed as an advancement for women) that is abortion. 

These brave people did so, because they believe in the teachings of their Church, which tell us that every life is precious.
The debate is not new. The Greek philosophers already debated on the morality of such procedure.
The Jewish scholars have codified very precisely what is considered life, and therefore what is the murder of a child or not.
We as Catholics are steadfast in our belief that abortion is murder, it is an infanticide, plain and simple.

In the early 20th century a new school of racial "specialists" advanced many new theories. Among them was Eugenics, a very dangerous idea, which advocates the practices that aim at improving the quality of the genetics of the human population.

Some of the solutions proposed were sterilization, (see above) but also outlawing inter racial marriage, and abortion. The founder of planned parenthood (an oxymoron if there ever was one) Margaret Sanger, was one of the pioneer advocate of Eugenics. Her main goal, in promoting abortion was the control of black and brown populations, by reducing the birth rate of minorities and therefore allowing white elites on the East Coast to advance their racial agenda. Never forget that it was Woodrow Wilson, who resurrected the KKK in the 1920s, and supported the Jim Crow laws and segregation in the South. All of them were democrats, and all of them started portraying this dangerous philosophy as an advancement for the cause of women's equality.
The same people that are now claiming they are defending women's rights are the ones that advocated for the control of minorities birth rates (through abortion) and the laws barring interracial marriages.

What does that have to do with us here on Guam, you might ask?

 A lot my friends, because the biggest advocate for abortion on our island is
 LOU LEON GUERRERO

And Lou Leon Guerrero could well be our next Governor.

APURON FOUND GUILTY BY CARDINAL O'BRIEN

By Tim Rohr
The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, formerly known as Our Lady of Victory and Feast of the Holy Rosary, is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church, celebrated on 7 October, the anniversary of the decisive victory of the combined fleet of the Holy League of 1571 over the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Lepanto.

It is time to go public on this.

The attack on myself and my family has been going on ever since I stepped into the arena in July 2013. It was only a matter of months before the Vatican itself tried to shut me down in the person of Cardinal Edwin O'Brien, currently the Grand Master of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, of which I am a member.



In October of 2013, only a few months after I began to publicly engage the atrocities of the now convicted and sentenced Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron, I received a letter from Cardinal Edwin O'Brien essentially ordering me to cease and desist or be removed from the Order.

I responded (as I always do) with a litany of facts.

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I never heard from O'Brien again until I wrote him on March 24, 2018, after the Apuron verdict was released.

In his response to me, O'Brien CONFIRMS that Apuron was convicted and sentenced for the crimes of the sex abuse of minors.

In fact, since the actual crimes were never detailed by the Vatican, O'Brien's personal email to me is probably the ONLY actual statement admitting what Apuron was actually accused, convicted, and sentenced for: THE SEX ABUSE OF MINORS. 

However, before I share with you the email exchange between myself and O'Brien of March 2018, it is worth noting that O'Brien himself was named in the now famous Vigano letter as part of the Vatican homosexual cabal.

EPISCOPAL SODOMY: EXPOSING CDL. EDWIN O’BRIEN

Is it any wonder why O'Brien tried to shut me down FIVE YEARS AGO? He must have known that if one bishop would fall (Apuron) he, and many others were sure to follow. And so they have...and so they ARE!

And it is for this that certain members of my family were recruited to destroy and discredit me - though I do not think they even have the slightest inkling of what and who is really behind all this.

Here is the exchange between O'Brien and myself of March 2018:

RE: Prot. #768/2013 ORDER TO “DESIST IN THE POTENTIALLY SCANDALOUS ACTIVITY”

Your Eminence:

In your letter to me of 10 October 2013 (attached) you accused me of: 
  1. “undermining” then-Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron’s “legitimate authority,”
  2. creating “serious divisions in the Church in Guam,” and of
  3. activity “surely not in keeping with the conduct of a faithful member of our Order.”
You then threatened to remove me from the Order if I continued to denounce the now former Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron.

Now that Anthony S. Apuron, former Archbishop of Agana, has been found guilty by a Vatican Tribunal on charges which included the sexual abuse of minors (Vatican Bulletin attached), and has not only been removed from office by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith but banished from the Archdiocese of Agana for life, may I request that you send me a letter retracting your threat to remove me from the Order.

Asking humbly for your cooperation,



/s/ Timothy J. Rohr

          Thank  you for your recent inquiry.  As I recall, your purported blog did not relate to the charges of which Archbishop Apuron has recently been found guilty, but rather to his administration of the Archdiocese.

Having heard nothing to the contrary, I am grateful that your divisive criticism of him in regard to this matter had ceased.

We now pray for healing within the Archdiocese of Guam.

I see. So you are confirming that Apuron was found guilty of sex abuse charges and not any charges related to his administration of this diocese.

There was no reply from Cardinal O'Brien.

There WILL be a reply from ME.

P.S. I am turning off the comments on this because I already know who the cowards are. Come and see me in court. I'm ready for you. It's time. 

P.P.S. I Invite Cardinal O'Brien and his local Guam hierarchy (I'll hold off on their names for now) to banish me from the Order. 

VATICAN "SHOULD HAVE KNOWN"

"The Vatican source, however, told America that the organizers “should have known better” than to invite Archbishop Apuron, given that a Vatican Tribunal had found him guilty of some of the accusations against him. “With friends such as these, the pope has no need of enemies,” the source remarked."

APURON'S LEGACY, ON GUAM's POLITICAL SCENE.

Posted by Frenchie

A full two years after his hurried escape from Guam, Apuron's shadow has diminished at least in the Catholic Church, even if the Neos are still very present, albeit in a less opened approach.
The consequences of his actions are still very much part of the local picture.

One area his presence is still very much felt, because of the profound impact of his corruption, is the political arena. 

While for many, he is already a thing of the past, following the old "out of sight, out of mind" rule, it is easy to find the remnant of his 30 years reign on Guam.

Even then, we might not be totally rid of him for sure, as I exposed in my post last week.

Part of Apuron long term legacy is of course, the presence on Guam of the Neos.
I have shown previously, that despite their setbacks at the Archdiocese level, they have taken a lower profile, but continued their expansion.
In the Church, they continue to be very present, thanks to the new Vicar General, who still continues to play both side of the fence, (appointing more neos to more parishes).
Their new Neocatecumenate center in Asan (where the old WWII museum was) is up and running, giving them a lot more flexibility for meetings, and assuring a better control on their troops.

Their major move is still not in the Church, at this time on Guam.
Their goal is the conquest of political power.

WHAT POPE FRANCIS ERRATIC POSITIONS, MEAN FOR GUAM AND FOR APURON

(Posted by Frenchie)

Pope Francis, since his election has been a leader characterized by his own contradictions. As soon as he sat on the throne of Peter, he became the darling of the Social Justice Warriors crowd. This is specially true in Western Europe's media. (and by default, in North America) The mostly secular, anti-Catholic at its core, very leftist, IVth Estate, as they are often described, could not write enough articles, publish enough documentaries to laud the character and the works of this Pontiff.

His surprising, and often shocking declarations in regard to gays, unmarried couples, the mostly muslim migration wave that overtook Europe, his alignment with some of the worst enemies of the Church, his critics of President Trump, or more recently his cautions about a supposed return of anti Semitism: all have been welcomed with kudos by the Press corp, who cannot find enough adjectives to sing his praises.

At the same time, we have had some push back coming from some more traditionalist Cardinals who have demanded answers, albeit without any tangible results; but also coming from a possibly more potent resistance: the demand by victims of sexual abuse by the clergy, for real answers. This has been compounded by the extremely frustrating revelations that some of the most powerful leaders of the Church have been knowingly and willfully covering up and ignoring the grave crimes perpetuated by some of Francis biggest supporters in the Church.


This is potentially explosive.

For us on Guam these events are very confusing, and very far from our daily concerns. Yet it could have a deep and lasting impact on how we continue to deal with the healing of our Church, following the catastrophic administration of Apuron for over 30 years, and the cover up of sexual abuse of countless victims on our island.

MEDIA REVIEWS OF THE USCCB SEXUAL COVERUP SCANDAL

(posted by Frenchie)






Since the beginning of the summer, and the shocking revelations of the shenanigans of former Cardinal and Archbishop emeritus of Washington DC Mc Carrick, we have been bombarded by an avalanche of information, all very disturbing, most of them contradictory, at best very confusing for the lambda citizens, and most faithful.

Adding to this, former Nuncio and high ranking Vatican official during the reign of Benedict the XVI, Archbishop Vigano revealed in an 11 pages statement a mother lode of accusations against high ranking members of the American Catholic Church and the Vatican. This release was well documented and precise and implicates Pope Francis directly in a coverup of Mc Carrick's misdeeds.
Read here

These revelations are capital, because they implicate cardinals, who elected Pope Francis, and could again elect his successor.
Which begs to ask, why we should trust cardinals who have abdicated their moral leadership, for the sake of political gains.

MAKING SENSE OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS, ON THE SEXUAL COVER UPS.

(posted by frenchie)

Ever since the revelations about the shenanigans of former Cardinal Mc Carrick at the beginning of this summer, which were closely followed by the release of the Pennsylvania's Attorney General grand jury findings on sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in that state; as well as the open letter of 11 pages by Archbishop Vigano, which openly accused several key prelates of the USCCB, and the Vatican, of coverup, revealing that Pope Francis had taken several controversial decisions in full knowledge of the issues; the media circus has gone full speed ahead with daily revelations to complicate what should be a clear cut issue.

We have written here at length about the jockeying by different currents inside the Catholic Church itself, as well as the obvious spinning by certain secular media outlets, according to their political leanings.

In the past two weeks we have been bombarded by so many opinion pieces, and partial information, that I found it necessary to kind of clean up the process a little and explain what is happening at this time.

CBS, CNN: EVIDENCE THAT THE VATICAN KNEW

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick
For a while, it seemed that Big Media in the U.S. were sticking to the canard that the accusations of cover up of Cardinal McCarrick's heinous sexual abuse of priests and seminarians was all part of a right-wing conspiracy.

That is, until the revelation of a letter written in 2006 by Archbishop Leonardo Sandri, the No. 3 in the Vatican's secretariat of state at the time, to Father Boniface Ramsey, a former professor at the Diocese of Newark's seminary.  The letter was published by the U.S. Bishops' Catholic News Service on September 7, 2018.

THE COMING STORM


There's a storm coming.  Not to Guam, but to New Jersey, the home of the nation's first Redemptoris Mater Seminary and to many of Cardinal McCarrick's shenanigans.  From NorthJersey.com:

New Jersey attorney general to investigate sex-abuse allegations among Catholic clergy

New Jersey will investigate allegations of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, following a report by a grand jury in Pennsylvania that found more than 1,000 victims there over 70 years.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said he's forming his own task force, which could use subpoenas and other investigative methods to uncover evidence that it would present to a state grand jury. The task force is to look into allegations of abuse as well as attempts to cover up incidents, Grewal's office said in a news release.  Read more.


Meanwhile, Pope Francis tells us in his homilies that "truth is silent" and that his accusers are "wild dogs".

Maybe New Jersey Attorney General Grewal will find out, as will his peers in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Illinois, New York, Nebraska, and Missouri.
