Archdiocese bans media from filming without clearancePosted: Dec 10, 2014 11:11 AM PGTUpdated: Dec 10, 2014 11:11 AM PGT
Guam - It's not public property; it's not government property, but rather private property! Those are the words from the Archdiocese of Agana which is now banning the media from filming or conducting interviews on Chancery grounds unless given permission. The Archdiocese has designated the St. John Paul the Great Center for Evangelization as the facility where media interviews can be conducted. The facility is adjacent to the Chancery and media will need to be escorted there. This new policy follows John Toves invitation to media last week to follow him to the Chancery as he attempted to confront the Archbishop. Toves accused the Archbishop of sexually molesting his cousin 30 years ago, but no victim has come forward.
MY NOTE: Even if a victim did come forward, the Archbishop's policy designates the Archbishop as the arbiter of the entire process.
