HON: FR. PAUL AND MONSIGNOR JAMES HAVE NOT BEEN RESTORED

Posted by Webster.

There you have it. Archbishop Hon clearly stated in his interview on the Jesse Lujan show this morning on KUAM that both Fr. Paul and Monsignor James have not been restored. He said he never used the word restored.

So I am not sure what all the celebrating and hoopla was all about after archbishop Hon's July 27 press conference. 

Everyone was shouting and dancing afterwards that both Fr. Paul and Monsignor James were restored and vindicated. 

Nothing close to restoration, resinstatement, and vindication was done. All archbishop Hon did was to throw out some crumbs to the public to whet their appetite and give the appearance of finality, closure, and satisfaction. 

Well, many of us were gullible enough to fall for it. Now we know better, and this should make us all feeling stupid and angry. We have been deceived again.

  2. Thank you for this post, Webster. I guess the ONE THING that was clarified by this morning's KUAM Live Stream was that the Apostolic Administrator DID NOT RESTORE either Fr. Paul Gofigan (even though he used the word "restore," referring to his name) or Msgr. James Benavente, contrary to public opinion because the word "RESTORE" was used in news reports.

    Tim Rohr made that abundantly clear in his 30 July post And Hon Smiles but only those of us in JungleWatch Nation (or those who read our shared posts on Facebook) were aware that Tim had written "To be clear: NEITHER PRIEST WAS RESTORED, because, as you will see, neither priest will be 'restored' to the positions from which they were removed."

    I hope people will be more astute in responding to the Apostolic Administrator's words because in all HONesty, I think he still regards most of us as ignorant natives who are desperate to accept his declarations without question.

  3. Hon said he never used the word "restore." It was Fr. Paul who used the word:

  5. SMH.....AB Savio is laughing at us. He believes "we" are stupid enough to believe him. He is nothing more than a politician of the cloth, so while he is greeting us, he is stabbing us in our backs. Don't be fooled, people. How many times are we going to allow this to happen? Reminds me of the saying, Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or more), shame on ME!!!!

  7. Do not feel stupid. I for one did not take his words at face value. He didn't validate his words with actions, thus nothing happened, nothing mattered.

    1. I also did not and will not take his words at face value. I will just get a bigger umbrella for the protests and street waves. I will not go away!

  8. In reference to the RMS, Abp Hon keeps proclaiming that when he walks into the RMS, what he says, goes. Jesse Lujan acknowledges that although that may be true, it does not qualify as legal ownership. Clear as day.

    Abp Hon does not seem to understand that we know the neo. We know that the neo will give the appearance of things, but believe something completely different.

    While they may "acknowledge" his authority on the surface, he has no real authority aside from Pius and especially from Kiko.

    Or maybe he does know this and he just does not care for he will be taken care of (rewarded) when he returns to the Vatican. But that is just a presumption on my part. Right?

  10. Clarification. Hon was careful not to restore both priest. Had he done that, they both would be back in their respective positions. Which is obviously not the case.
    As for father Paul, he did not say he was restored. He said, and that is a huge difference, that his reputation was restored after having been dragged in the mud.
    Nothing less, nothing more.
    People need to read and listen carefully what is being said.
    To extrapolate things to fit a narrow agenda usually does not serve any good purpose.
    This has been demonstrated almost daily by Diana and the trash she spews. More recently the Zoltan did the same thing.
    We should not fall in that kind of behavior, unless we want to risk all the time,effort, goodwill and treasury invested over the last three years.

    1. To be restored means to be put back where you were. Fr. Paul was pastor of Santa Barbara. He is still not. Therefore, he has not been restored

  11. Well said Frenchie. Ridiculous false texts emails that went around after Hon's press conference last week.He rightly opened gates for due process only.

  12. What struck me about Archbishop Hons live kuam stream early this morning was just how unprepard he was to take a media interview. Given the circumstances of the seriousness of the situation he demonstrated little knowledge of facts, documents, and legal workings. When pressed by the interviewer he appeared nervous unable to give substantial answers.

  13. Hon is "trying" to live up to his name Savio: Etymology : Means "clever, bright" in Italian.
