LATEST FROM THE ROMAN UNDERGROUND

It seems Luis was ordered to be removed from Guam by Pius upon the orders of the New Jersey couple. This is the reason why Apuron cannot say when he will return. Pius was a angry with the statements that Luis wanted to even return to Guam. It seems Pius is the one wanting Luis to go away and be forgotten. 

DO YOU WANT TO TELL PEOPLE THE REST OF THE STORY...OR WILL YOU?

In today's U Matuna, the official newspaper for the Archdiocese of Agana, there is a front page article entitled "The truth about the property of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary."

The article attempts to persuade us that the property remains fully in Archbishop Apuron's control and that he did nothing wrong when he restricted the use of the property. It attempts to do this by presenting excerpts from the following:
  1. The Ownership Report
  2. The Legal Opinion
  3. The opinion of the Pontifical Council of Legislative Text
Let's take each one.

The Ownership Report
The article states that the Ownership Report, as completed in 2014 by Pacific American Title, "confirms that the lots on which the seminary sits, identifies the owner as the Archbishop of Agana. Therefore, contrary to rumors, the title deed has always remained in the hands of the Archdiocese."

Two points:

One
Yes, the title deed remains in the hands of the Archdiocese, BUT only thanks to the people Archbishop Apuron fired from the previous Archdiocesan Finance Council: Richard Untalan, Joseph Rivera, Msgr. James Benavente, and Sr. Stephen Torres, RSM. Let us recall that in 2011 Archbishop Apuron had initially attempted to convey the title outright to RMS as evidenced by this letter written in September of 2011 advising the rector of RMS of the decision by the AFC to deny the conveyance of title to RMS.

Two
The issue is not who owns the property. We already knew that from doing our own title search which we posted here back on March 27. The issue is not who owns the property but WHO controls it. You can have title to a property, but if you assign control of that property to someone else it no longer has any value as an asset for the duration of the assignment. 

The Legal Opinion
The article includes portions of a legal opinion by a Denver law firm assuring us that Archbishop Apuron:
  1. "retains substantial authority" over RMS
  2.  in restricting use of the property to RMS was an action "consistent with canon law"
Four points:

One
So a Denver law firm is practicing law on Guam. That's illegal.

Two
Why didn't Apuron simply get the (probably free) opinion of his own legal counsel? The man who actually put both the deal together to acquire the property and the RMS corporation itself? Well, we know why. Because the legal counsel had already given his opinion and it wasn't the one Apuron wanted.

Three
Apuron only posts portions of the opinion. Really? Space and cost were no object when he was publishing, week after week, all the supposed crimes of Msgr. James. But here we are given the few tidbits that he wants us to read and then tells us if we want to see the rest we have to come to the chancery.

Four
The bottom line issue is whether or not a lending institution would consider the property, given the restriction, an asset of the Archdiocese of Agana. In arguing only for the view that the archbishop retains "substantial authority" over RMS, the report appears to admit that the property has no current value to the Archdiocese of Agana, and would only have value if the Archbishop assigns it back. In short, the patrimony of the Archdiocese of Agana is significantly harmed, which is is why then apostolic delegate, Archbishop Balvo, told Apuron in 2012 that in this matter he is not free to do as he pleases. 

The opinion of the Pontifical Council of Legislative Text
The article references a Canon Law Report which supposedly claims that the deed restriction did not alienate the property. 

Two points:

One
Hmmm. There is no footnote to this report (as there is for the law firm's opinion). Why not publish the "report"?

Two
The "report" references the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and we are told that it is the highest authority for interpreting the laws of the Church. Wonderful. But said Pontifical Council has ZERO authority for interpreting the laws of Guam, which actually govern the legal status of that property (and, by the way, neither does the Denver law firm that Apuron hired). So what a bunch of b.s. 

Some other thoughts:

One
If there was nothing wrong with what the Archbishop did, then why did he hide it? Attached to the Deed Restriction is a Decree of Designation. A Decree is a public announcement. Yet not only did Apuron NEVER announce the designation, he didn't even tell the members of his own finance council. In fact, he didn't tell anyone but his neo buddies. And what's more, after restricting the property he went on to chide, insult, berate, and ultimately fire the members of the finance council who opposed him. 

Two
The idea that Archbishop Apuron is in control of anything is a joke. Even if the legal opinion is right and the archbishop "retains substantial authority". It does not account for WHO "retains substantial authority" over him. And this is the root of the problem. Apuron will obey his neo masters. They will tell him NEVER to give back the property to the Archdiocese of Agana and he will obey. 

Three
By the way, Archbishop, is this why you have been "raising money"? How much of our money did you use on this very expensive law firm? Or was that Kimchee's (parents') money that you bilked her out of? What did you do, promise her more indulgences? She talks, you know, a lot! The other day she was bragging to a whole table at a hotel restaurant about how much money she gave you. She even said it was for "an American lawyer."

P.S. Tell Wadeson to say he's innocent, not just that the charges were "unfounded."

P.P.S. BTW, Archbishop, do you recognize these words:
"Therefore we cannot sign the letter you drafted because it is not true." 
I have the letter. Do you want me to tell people the rest of the story...or will you?





OKAY

Okay, Archbishop, you have forced me to show it. And I will.

Archbishop must be transparent

DON'T GO THERE


The archdiocese has called a meeting of the clergy to discuss how to respond to the local call for the legalization of same-sex marriage.

May I remind the Catholic leadership that their response last time around was such an utter failure that it led to a belief that Archbishop Apuron had called for the beheading of homosexuals and a much longer fight than was necessary. 

The Catholic leadership knows exactly to what I refer. For the rest of you, just google the words "apuron homosexual muslim". 

So I am going to suggest EXACTLY what I suggested the last time around and was completely ignored - as I probably will be this time. Here it is. Ready?

KIKO IS IN GOOD COMPANY


Dear Kiko's

In May of 2009, the University of Notre Dame, the United States' most prestigious Catholic university, gave the most pro-abortion president in history an honorary degree. Kiko is in good company. 

Best Regards,

JungleWatch



SO SHUT UP

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "STILL MORE LIES":
Boo-hoo Pius is being persecuted. Boo-hoo people are saying mean truths about him. Boo-hoo persecution. 
To Pius and his fellow kiko's. Here's what real persecution looks like. So shut up.


WHAT TO DO ABOUT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE


Someone messaged me the other day and asked if I was going to "do anything" about same-sex marriage.

The person is probably asking me because of the role I played a few years ago engaging the same-sex union bill back in 2009.

My answer is yes. And here it is.

FUNNY & FILTHY

The Kiko's are criticizing SNAP saying it is anti-Catholic. That's funny. Tell that to Archbishop Apuron who bragged about his support from SNAP.
"...even S.N.A.P. heard about this and applauded me for doing this on this priest and hope that I do not reinstate him because of that..." - Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron to thirty members of the clergy at a retreat in Tagaytay, Philippines on October 10, 2013.

Here's a close transcript [my comments in red]:

RAISING MONEY?

What for? Rome already told him he couldn't sue. Hush money? For the Camacho thing? Heard Cashee was all tapped out. Mommy and Daddy saying no more cashee? That means no more cashee in envelopees. JPII Malojloj ready to crashee. Don't think Cashee will bail it out-ee like RMS-ee.

FROM THE ROMAN UNDERGROUND


So just to let you know that we know. It was "rumored" that AAA was looking into "suing". 

Suing who? 

Well we know that he already threatened to "sue" John Toves, though not by name. Laughably, AAA threatened to sue to "protect the church". NOT. We also suspect he wants to sue CCOG and most likely me as well. 

However, according to the report from the Roman Underground, AAA was told by Congregation bosses that he wasn't going to sue anybody.

Having learned this, I spoke to some of the guys who REALLY know what's going on and they said "bring it on." In their view a lawsuit by Apuron would mean a quick end to both Apuron and the NCW since all would be exposed under penalty of perjury.

Note to Congregation bosses: If you're having trouble trying to figure out what to do it is because you haven't figured out yet that Apuron is a complete puppet in the hands of his neocatechumenal masters. I told you this at our meeting. He has ZERO control. Every thought, word, and deed is scripted for him. 

This is why we really would like a law suit. We would finally get past Apuron and to the real bad guys who run this place. However, we prefer that you just take care of this asap. 

Don't worry. There won't be dancing in the streets. But there will soon be signs:

SIMPLY MORE LIES AND MORE LIES

Let's compare what Archbishop Apuron said about Fr. Wadeson versus what the Archdiocese of Los Angeles really said. First, let's read the two statements:
STATEMENT FROM THE ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA

On April 10, 2015 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles in its weekly diocesan newspaper, The Tidings, published a report stating the Archdiocese of Los Angeles had conducted a thorough re-examination of the whole issue concerning the alleged accusations against Father John H. Wadeson. The Tidings made the announcement in its print edition.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry showing that all the rumors and alleged calumnies against him were unfounded.

The Archdiocese of Agana therefore announces that Fr. John Wadeson has been reinstated fully to public ministry according to a decree dated April 13, 2015.

SNAP RESPONDS

Guam’s Wadeson reinstated

KUAM announced today that former LA priest John Wadeson has been reinstated in the Archdiocese of Agana (Guam).
I have written about Wadeson in the past. According to the Los Angeles Archdiocese, he was twice accused of sexually abusing children and had been banned from working as a priest there.
According to a statement published in The Tidings (the Archdiocese of LA Newspaper), the LA Archdiocese did a investigation and “concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry.”
This decision was based on the fact there has never been a settlement paid on an abuse case against Wadeson. According to the statement, when the allegations first arose, the Society of the Divine Word (the order to which Wadeson belonged) investigated the claims and found them “unverified.”
Here are my issues:
  • According to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and every other diocese across the US, the payment of a settlement does NOT equate implied guilt on the behalf of the accused. If this were the case, former San Diego Bishop Robert Brom would have been removed years ago. (He paid a former seminarian a confidential $250,000 settlement for allegedly coercing the victim into sex)
  • Why didn’t Wadeson do something immediately when the LA Archdiocese published reports that he was twice accused? If in the same position, I would do everything in my power to clear my name immediately. And I would be public about it to ensure that I was adhering to transparency.
  • What does “unverified” mean? That there was only one victim? There were no witnesses? What is a “verified” allegation?
And probably the most troublesome:
The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry showing that all the rumors and alleged calumnies against him were unfounded.
Rumors and calumnies? It was not a rumor that LA had said he was twice-accused, nor was it a rumor that they had banned him. But by making such a bile-infused statement, Apuron is attempting to silence and shame victims and whistleblowers by labeling them sinners and rumor-mongers.
As I have reiterated numerous times, the clergy sex abuse scandal is not about abuse. It’s about cover-up and how bishops handle allegations of abuse, perpetrators and victims.
Whether or not Wadeson is guilty, the most troubling aspect of this case is how Apuron has used it to silence victims, divide the faithful, bully whistleblowers, and shelter secrets.

STILL MORE LIES


KUAM is reporting today that Archbishop Apuron has restored Fr. John Wadeson to ministry in the Archdiocese of Agana after an investigation by the Los Angeles Archdiocese concluded that "there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry."

Congratulations, Fr. Wadeson, and you're welcome. It appears you took my advice when I wrote on July 25, 2014:
Now, get down to business, clear your name with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and publish the record exonerating you of all charges.

KIKO ON DISPLAY

If you want to know what Kiko really believes and teaches about what we "normal people" call the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, here it is, on full display:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "DIVERGENCE FROM CATHOLIC DOCTRINE IN THE NEOCATECH...":

Dear RYaeger, I do not know about anyone who was "hurt" by liturgy. Liturgy is a business of the clergy and not the flock. Only a few select nerds think it is their duty to police others over liturgy, but normal people don't really care. This is a fact of life.

You have to be weak and very insecure in your faith if you overemphasize some formal features over spiritual content. Our Christian brothers in many other denominations do not have any trouble to follow their own liturgies which is pretty much distinct from the Catholic liturgy. Do you thing they are hurt and suffering? Honestly, I don't think so. The tent of God is spacious enough to give room for liturgical variations without compromising the faith in Christ.

So take courage the Lord is good.

Let's compare this KIKO-THINK to what the Church, the real one, actually teaches:
