GO AHEAD, ARCHBISHOP. PROCEED.

Now that Apuron is officially threatening to sue John Toves for defamation, let us recall Apuron's own defamation of Fr. Paul Gofigan.

In October of 2013, at a diocesan retreat in Tagaytay, Philippines, Archbishop Apuron, Metropolitan Archbishop of Agana, in front of approximately thirty members of the clergy who had gathered thinking they were to be addressed by their chief shepherd on spiritual matters, instead were treated to Apuron's harlequin narration of what sounds like orgiastic homosexual night-long trysts complete with "cases of beer and what not" and even a secret stairway:

“…and really for disobeying the orders I had given him two years earlier.  I had waited two years to see what would happen because so many complaints were coming in about why is he still working there with him, why is he so intimate…because he had built a stairway up to his room, his room is on the second floor, and he would come in the middle of the night, you know, with cases of beer and what not and stays there to the early morning…” - Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron, Metropolitan Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Agana, October, 2013, Tagaytay, Philippines

Fr. Paul did not sue Apuron. He only asked for an apology. He never got one. 

Also, let us not forget Apuron's public defamation of Msgr. James Benavente. Rather than deal with Msgr. James privately about his alleged misdeeds (which have never been proven nor has Msgr. James ever received a copy of what he was accused of), Apuron did a press release listing the accusations to the secular media and had the accusations printed several times in the U Matuna. This is the equivalent of a judge publicly accusing a defendant before the defendant is even brought to trial. Such a judge would be immediately removed if not himself brought to trial. 

So go ahead, archbishop, please proceed. Lots of people are waiting. Some as long as thirty years.

  1. The poor priests that have been bullied and defamated by NEO CULT Presbyter Anthony Sablan Apuron find themselves having to solicit finding to help pay for their Canon Cases; yet here we have this same hypocrite of a leader abuse church funds for legal actions for same defamation against him…..It’s always been about the money…..This has and will be the root of NEO CULT Presbyter Apuron’s demise as a dysfunctional spiritual leader of Guam…. His goal before he dies is to dismantle the Catholic Church we and our ancestors built….Prove your solidarity and stop the money. Stop attending services where there is a NEO CULT Presbyter assigned. Protest any future NEO CULT Presbyter CULT Ordinations and Protest the CB Jubilee. Let’s demonstrate to all the leaders that will attend that we have an evil fox in sheep’s clothing that introduced and supports this NEO CULT Parasite in Guam.

    Let me see. If the count down clock is correct, it was only 233 days and 16 that he first threatened to sue. I see he is saying that the Church is being hurt by the allegation of sex abuse. The only hurt to the Church is if he fails to properly investigate. A proper investigation should be done, except that Tony's puppet Dacon Clarros thinks Tony is innocent, for sure for sure. How can he tell without an investigation? Easy, the accused says he's innocent. Seems to work for the Church.
    It must also be that Deacon Martinez is slandering the Churc h with his accusation against Fr Luis. No investigation there, Fr Luis must have stated he is innocent. Let's protect the Church and sue anyone who makes a claim of sex abuse. That will surely stop claims of sex abuse.
    BUT IT WON'T STOP SEX ABUSE.
    It only hides the problem, which is exactly what guilty people want. So, while Tony may want to sue, he should also demand an investigation to fully clear his name.
    By the way folks, in case you don't see the message, Tony declares the sex abuse claim against him hurts the Church, that way he can justify having the Church pay for his personal legal bills.
    No need to worry Tony. None of us will see through your sick plot to save yourself, and your vast fortunes.

    1. Yes anon @9.57.
      As the old adage says: "The suit doesn't make the man".
      (No puns intended )
      In this case the office or the function failed to give it's holder any moral bearing.
      Sad, sad, sad...

  4. Here you have exhibit A of calumny and the spreading of gossip from the shepherd on Guam. Instead of taking the highway to heaven, he takes the highway to hell. And that stairwell was already there before Fr. Paul was ordained!
