SENATOR ELIZABETH ARRIOLA: "LET ME TELL YOU..."

I added the following to the post PARTICULARLY SERIOUS AND DEPLORABLE


By the way, when I questioned why there was this "Earth First" bent at the conference which was supposed to address "the dignity of every human person" I was told "no planet no people." It's cute. And I've heard the cliche many times. But in God's view - since the earth was created for man and not the other way around, it should be: "no people, no reason for the planet." But the quip did remind me of something the late senator and pro-life champion Elizabeth Arriola was quoted as saying and I will copy it here:

"Let me tell you, at the rate Guam Memorial Hospital is aborting children, between 400-600 a year, and most of them are not even reported. Where are the lives that we are going to protect and preserve? Here we go talking about indigenous rights and self-determination. What good is all that if we don't have our followers to follow and enjoy the fruits of our labor, of this generation's labor, of your labor and my labor to fix this island and have autonomous rights to govern our people?"

 - quoted in: Asian/Pacific Islander American Women: A Historical Anthology, pg. 372, edited by Shirley Hume, Gail M. Nomura

Obviously this great woman and island leader knew that there was no sense in saving anything if we were going to permit the wanton killing of unborn children. 

Elizabeth Arriola was the first female lector at St. Peter's Basilica (1986)

  2. Unborn child has human blood, It's not it or a toy to play, it's come from human flesh, flesh to flesh, they have rights to live, only problem is they can not talk for their "Life" to be born.

    This is indeed a great woman! I worked for her. An amazing senator, catholic, and mother. She inspired me to be outspoken. I was nineteen.

  4. It is horrible that abortion is taking place in Guam in such alarming numbers. What is also sickening is that Apuron has done so little to speak out against the moral evil of abortion. His only concern is his beloved neo boys to hell with the rest of the church is his attitude. To be a bishop, to be a leader you have to think of " everyone." Everyone is a priority 24/7. You have to be with everyone rich poor black or white, gay or straight, Everyone is important because people matter not money . Apuron is self seeking greedy for material gain and position it is why his life and ministry is totally ineffective as a catholic bishop. It is why so many people now join the ranks of calling in public and private for his resignation. It is time for him to step down let healing begin. The man has completely lost his mind this is the reality.

      5.24p, Abortions on Guam continue to increase at alarming rates. These Abortions take place while Guams " Airport Bishop" aimlessly wonders throughout worlds airports doing what ever he does. past years he should have been leading the archdiocese and providing am example of leadership in the pacific. Had he have performed the ministry entrusted to him then the region would not be suffering the great spiritual moral poverty that it does today. We have arrived at this moral crisis because of his failed leadership. The entire region suffered because of two pathetic individual who were so full of self greed the entire region is now in decay. I fear it will only get worse as we see the depth of the moral spiritual decay. Abortions, moral evils, a church in division, half baked priests, all under the watch of the ailing bishop.

  8. her time in the legislature were the final days of strong vocal and public opposition to abortion on guam from both civil and religious areas. it was a time when we in the Catholic schools were clearly taught the evils of abortion and when we participated in public demonstrations against it, at the urging of our teachers, especially sr orlean cepeda rsm. does that still happen today?

    Every catholic has a right to Justice in the church. Archbishop Apuron of Guam has intentionally prevented justice to Guam's Catholic Faithful. He has intentionally destroyed Priiests and men and women religious. He has spent years deceiving people and it is time he retires. Apuron it is time for you to retire you are a disgrace to the catholic church of Guam .

    1. 99 per cent of the catholics of Guam dislikes APURON. Maybe even hates him. The only people who enjoys his company are the neos and probably some of his family members.

      Archbishop Apuron has molested many young boys, he has threatens many clergy and faithful who oppose him. Ask him...about Agat, Chalan Pago, and Agana. I am waiting you evil man. NO ONE SUPPORTS YOU ANY LONGER. Be a fool, enjoy. You, the Hill, and your NEOs are going down, I swear. You know where I am. Call me on my cell, 415-812-9065, or my home, 510-684-4999. You're going down now! Wait till you see what's next. Diana Dingbat, pass this on, btw I know your info. I need a pic of you too.

    3. If you, or a member of your family are a victim of sexual abuse on Guam than I urge you to contact the office of Snap and our Apostolic Delegate Archbishop Martin Krebs. Do not Inform the Guam chancery.

  16. John, what is your purpose of threatening Adrian with pictures? Are you imitating Apuron's impotent style of trying to silence you? Where is that getting him (Apuron)? What do you expect Adrian to do or not do after receiving your threats?

    1. I believe it has something to do with MAD: mutually assured destruction. Adrian has threatened to violate the Scarlet Bond. John is letting Adrian know that he better not.

      Thanks Tim, but as Frenchie pointed out, I am a LOOSE CANON. I will drag them all through the mud until international media will pick up. I am close. No matter how they attempt to discredit clergy, I will cover them. Apuron, Cristobal, and Quitugua have already discredited themselves. Hill, remember I am a nut, mosquito, loose canon, etc.

  17. Adrian is threatening to reveal names of priests he believes are gay. He already did but his last plan to reveal priests he considered gay came to a rather abrupt end.

    I can deal with Cristobal. There is enough to bring him down. It's a question about ugly. Adrian, you better have a good hand because I have better. As Tim asserted I am a magnet at this point and am being fed so much info...Maina, to begin. Let's play.
