I know you're busy, but there are some things you should know about our island, or what has become of our island under Archbishop Apuron's reign of neglect (and terror) that you probably wouldn't know otherwise if I didn't post it here.

Sadly, in the three decades, Archbishop Apuron has held the episcopal chair, Guam's once strong family and fervent Catholic culture has nearly utterly collapsed. 

We know all the excuses about the world, etc., but those of us who really know the truth, know that as the Church goes, so goes the world. Well here is what has happened under Archbishop Apuron and the ongoing collapse of the faith which he has presided over (usually from a seat in Business First).

Note, I was motivated to post on this because of the challenge I received from the following:

More heat for the fire. How can the people in the archdiocese heal if one side wants to burn and expose the diocese (junglewatch). I believe that this blog is the cause of the problem in the diocese. Its not only to get at the bishop or the leadership but what do you want or expect from all of this?

The following was compiled in 2013:

  • Guam has the most liberal abortion laws in the nation which allow for the termination of nearly one out of ten pregnancies with more than 60% being Chamorro. (2012 Guam Medical Records)
  • Guam has the highest divorce rate in the world (4.7 divorces per 1000 population, 2010 Guam Statistical Yearbook vs Russia 4.5 per 1000, 2011 United Nations Demographic Yearbook)
  • Guam has a 20% higher out of wedlock birth rate (60%) compared to the rest of the nation (40.8%, CDC 2010) Note: Guam stopped reporting “illegitimate” births in 2005. 60% is based on the average between 2000 and 2005).
  • Guam has double the teen birthrate compared to the rest of the nation (Guam Pacific Daily News, 6/25/13)
  • Guam abuses and neglects its children at nearly double the national average (Guam child maltreatment rate of 76.81 per 1000 children based on 2012 CPS report and 2010 census vs 41.2 per 1000 children national average as per Table 3-2, Child Maltreatment 2011, Children’s Bureau, U.S. DPHHS)
Of course, Archbishop Apuron will find a way to blame all of the above on Msgr. James, won't he?

    Of course "The Dianas" will claim all these statistics could all be reversed IF those of us here in The Jungle would simply stop "persecuting" AAA and embrace THEE WAY and its "fruits."

    1. Apuron has only been opposed by the majority for less than a year. His trail of neglect and terror goes back 30. Perhaps the "victims" will talk.

    2. Correct Mr. Rohr. Majority of Guam's Catholics now directly oppose Apuron. We oppose his leadership , and will continue to do so until healing takes place. One word simple word of sorry will change things. But nothing in 20 years.


  2. Apuron's terror goes back 30 years he is one evil the cause of great suffering to many.


  3. This blog is the avenue for healing for the pain caused by Archbishop Apuron. There will be no peace until he reaches out and simply says sorry to those he caused such deep deep pain in life.

  4. Anon Jan 6, 2015 6:17 PM, are you for real??? The blog is the problem?? WTH are you smoking?
    AAA gives away a mutli-million dollar piece of property that isn't his. He and the Vicar try to pull a ruse on Mr. Untalan and the legal council, after the fact. Which by the way is lying in a roundabout fashion. And the blog is the problem?? Never mind. Talking to you would be like talking to a parrot. No matter what we say you will only ask for a cracker. So go back to your Neo cage and wait for the morsels your master gives you. What do we expect out of this?" To win back what is rightfully ours, and that is the one true Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus not the one founded by Kiko. "Todo i prophesia, esta manayan." May the law suit continue. Ready to sign my name.


  5. leadership is evil .


  6. Well said Joseph Santos. Law suit on this fake seminary should move ahead. But first we must respect the visitors and allow them to find solutions for building bridges and peace Our Island nation church urgently needs peace to begin the healing. Peace cannot evolve with our present leadership. A Vatican administrator appointed by the pope not from Guam is the only possible way to now restore integrity.


  7. Dear Archbishop Krebs.

    As you know when the healing begins things will stop.

  8. Dear Mr. Rohr:

    Do you have any statistics on the proliferation of Protestant denominations in Guam? I believe we are losing many of our own Catholics to them under AAA.

    1. No actual numbers but there are 60 plus churches listed that are not Catholic churches in the Guam Community Resource Directory. All of them have congregations which are made up of people, probably most of whom are from Guam which means most of whom were Catholic. If you think back to the the time of Archbishop Flores, there was probably only a fraction of this many non-Catholic churches. Apuron's legacy.

    2. To our Dearest and most welcome visitors, we the people of Guam humbly request that you listen to the PEOPLE OF GUAM as our Catholic Faithful continue to decrease under the Leadership, I meant Non-Leader of Apuron who I once duly respect. I grew up as an Altar Service 60 years ago and with the teaching of my Parents and various Priest within our Village I continue to be involved with our Parish and will continue to do so and will stop with 'the way" ever comes to our Parish and make changes. Guam and the CNMI truly needs your help in resolving this divisions with our Catholic Faith. Help us and do not leave us under the directions of all existing Apuron's groups ready to control our True Teaching of our Catholic Faith and not their ways.
