It has now been three days since we gave the opposition the opportunity to prove which side is really "twisting words" and which side respects the intelligence of their readers. 

They say that Apuron has documents which exonerate him in the RMS scam. We say that we have documents which implicate him. They accused us of twisting words so we posted our entire source document because we respect the intelligence of our readers. They posted only more of their own words.

Now who are you going to believe?

Here is ours again:

So let's end the squabble, Archbishop. You have all the power to do so. You can simply post the documents which you claim to exonerate you. Of course you know and we know that they don't - which is why you haven't done so and never will. And they don't because you know that the firm you used has no license to issue a legal opinion on a Guam real estate transaction and neither does the Vatican. 

But the fact that you posted a misleading "summary" of those documents in the U Matuna makes you all the more guilty of fomenting even more lies and scandal. Is Kiko really worth that much?


  1. Tim, the problem is Apuron is totally controlled by Kiko and his cohorts, It must be those general confessions that the members are obliged to do to achieve their stripes. I also, think that it is this and the combination of "control" exerted on the members have enslaved both their minds and tongues. Kiko seems to have magical powers over his flock. Reminiscent of the followers of Jones who had such a hold on his group that they all took poison Kool Aid and died.

  2. Tim - To your question of the Archbishop (“Is Kiko Really Worth That Much?”), I believe he knows the answer, but is unable to enunciate it. Of course, Kiko is not worth that much (and he knows it) but for him to say so would be an apostasy to the Neocatechumenal Way. Objectively, he knows that no man is worth compromising his God and God’s Representative on earth, the Pope, but given his situation he has to lead a dual life, and profess a dual allegiance – Kiko and the Pope.

    Of course we all know that Christ had said that “no man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other; you cannot serve both God and Mammon” (Mt 6:24). The Archbishop knows this all too well, but until such time that he can wrestle with his soul, and come out with an unequivocal “yes” to the Pope (representing God), he will forever be a living contradiction to himself - and continue to serve Kiko (representing Mammon).

    I read a sermon once wherein the preacher said that man is not free; he is a slave. “What matters,” he says is ‘whose slave are you’. If we are true Catholics, faithful followers of Jesus, we are not free. We are slaves of God – and that is a good thing! If we are not faithful Catholics, not faithful to the teachings of Christ and His Church, we are not free. We are slaves of Mammon. And that is not good.” [Note: Understand well what the preacher means by “not free” and “slave”. He is not using it in the literal sense, but in an allegorical sense.]

    I recall asking the Archbishop an unequivocal question at a pastoral visit gathering in Toto, which I thought would elicit only a “yes” or a “no” answer. My question was “Archbishop, are you beholden to any other human being on earth, other than the Pope, in the running of the affairs (beliefs/practices) of the Catholic Church in this archdiocese?” I was hoping to hear a resounding refrain from our Chamorro song – “I Santo Papa giya Roma; ya todo hafa î dispassioña pot î Iglesia sen taya lachiña” (“the Holy Father in Rome; and whatever his disposition is about the Church there can be no wrong”). That would have been TRUE AND UNDIVIDED loyalty. Instead of an unequivocal “yes/no” answer, I was told that “of course I listen to the Pope and do his bidding, like going out to the people and meeting with them (reference to the pastoral visit), I also listen to the charism, and if that is good – then fine.” So there you have it – the dualism.

    To your original question, Tim “Is Kiko really worth that much” – obviously, to him, it does. Until such time that Rome corrects this situation, we will always be lead by an erring shepherd. Sad – but true.

    But let us all take to heart Christ’s own words before He ascended into Heaven – “Go, therefore… teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always even unto the end of the age.” (Mt 28:20)

    1. Thanks, Joe. I understand your message. However, I want to clarify that we will NOT be led by an "erring shepherd."
