Ousted priest leaves Guam: Wadeson defends, praises Archbishop Apuron
PDN: "Wadeson stated he's been falsely accused, but decided to leave because he didn't want the accusations against him to tarnish Archbishop Anthony Apuron."
PDN: "I was in such shock at the viciousness and lies of what was being said about me and our archbishop, whom I hold in great esteem, that I was lost for words," Wadeson stated...
JW: What "viciousness and lies" would those be, Wadeson? All that was reported was your record as published by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. If that report is a "lie" then your issue is with Cardinal Mahoney, who published your record, NOT the people of Guam. Don't you think? And of course, have you no remorse for the "shock" you caused the people of this archdiocese? No. Only you are shocked. Apparently we have no right to be.
PDN: "For the good of the church, I thought it best that I leave the country, albeit with a very heavy heart, so that these false accusations that are being leveled at me do not become weapons to use against our archbishop or the Church of Guam," he stated.
PDN: "I will continue to pray for our church, our archbishop as well as for those who attack him," Wadeson stated.
PDN: "The Archdiocese of Agana has a policy regarding sexual misconduct and sexual harassment and takes these matters seriously," the local archdiocese stated.
