As expected, this is going to get nasty. A Facebook "friend" posted the following comment on a post where I questioned Congresswoman Bordallo's Catholic credentials relative to her support of the pro-abortion Obamacare:

I don't understand why you would write opinions questioning someone's Catholic virtues when you at the same time question the Archbishops (sic) authority as (sic) the church on Guam.

I replied:

The Archbishop does not have authority over church law. He is required to follow church law the same as all of us. If he did not violate church law no canon lawyer would have taken the case for Fr. Paul. In fact, a canon lawyer has filed motion against the Archbishop's decision. It is not I who am questioning the Archbishop's decisions. I am reporting exactly what is happening. The Archbishop's decision is being questioned by Fr. Paul and his lawyer.

I actually replied further but I'm not going to post the remainder of the comment here as it has to do with a very serious incident which occurred during an interview on KOLG in December of 2005. I am not ready to make that public. But a few more challenges like John's could change my mind.

(However, I - and others - are still willing to cut the Archbishop some slack as it appears he is simply following the direction of his advisors. He wouldn't be the first leader to get bad advice. Hopefully he will do something about that soon though.)


  1. Attended Fr. McGraf's 50th anniversary this past Saturday. Sad that neither the Archbishop, Fr. Adrian, Fr. David, Fr. Michael, nor any Neo representative participated. Also, the 9:30 a.m. videotelecast mass presided by Neo Fr. Michael was sparsely attended. Anyone still denying there's a significant split in our Catholic community is indeed blind.

  2. 9:30 am practically empty Cathedral. Sad.

  3. I guess I'm not the only one boycotting Neo masses. Non-Neo masses are busting at the seams. Fr. Paul should advertise where he's saying mass regularly. Oh, and there's always the good old Capuchins. Non-Neo and Capuchin priests can be relied upon not to put a spin in the readings to reflect Kikoman theology.
