HON HAS NO EXCUSE NOT TO KNOW ABOUT BROUILLARD

Posted by Tim

In today's excellent investigative PDN story by Haidee V Eugenio, Archdiocese of Agana Apostolic Administrator, Archbishop Savio Hon Tai Fai appears to not know much about Fr. Louis Brouillard. Brouillard was accused this past Monday by 73 year old Leo Tudela of molesting him when he was an altar boy in Mangilao in the late 1950's. 

It's too bad Archbishop Hon treated the Concerned Catholics of Guam with disdain at his first meeting with them on January 8, 2015. 

At that meeting, CCOG President, Greg Perez, attempted to tell Archbishop Hon about the many issues facing the Guam Church. Hon ridiculed Perez and the CCOG, accused them of "spreading propaganda and promoting division, and told them they had no authority to investigate the church or Apuron. 


He told Perez that the "Vatican would do things their way," and to send any information he had DIRECTLY to him. 

Well that is exactly what Perez did. 

At the meeting, Perez handed Hon a 64 page report, painstakingly prepared by the CCOG in the hopes that Hon would actually do something with the information. In the report was a section titled "Sexual Abuse Issues and the Archdiocese of Agana’s Sexual Abuse Policy Deficiency." On page 3 of this section was all the information Hon needed to know about Brouillard, information he now claims NOT to know:


Hon's disdain for Perez and the CCOG was palpable. He ordered Perez to take down the CCOG website and to "not allow people to make comments." He probably then threw the report in the trash the same way he threw the CCOG out of the meeting. And now he pretends he doesn't know.

    1. Rough estimate in 35 years Archdiocese paid in excess of $500,000 to Fr.Louis. this would be cash spending. Items like health care shelter could well be extra expense. Same could be true for wadeson and Fr. Lewis.Bishop's appeal funding supports this along with dysfunctional RMS.

    2. Are you saying half a million of catholic bishops appeal money was paid to this priest to " get lost"? Keep silent? Why is he talking now? Did Hon stop paying him hush money?

  3. This is where your CCA money went. And Hon asks you to pay more. Come on Guam wake up. Smell the Roses. Corruption.

  4. With Hon's doubletalk doubling back on him, my friends and I are betting it won't be long before he's shipped back to Rome! I'm guessing less than 60 days. What's your guess?

  5. Yes, all that and he stated not having any authority to investigate and yet so righteously announced he will look into Leo Tudela's claim and still won't investigate Apuron? Hon thinks we're stupid and he is just a total waste of time. DEFROCK HON AND APURON!

    1. Two glaring lies from Hon. He did give us the impression that he has no authority to investigate. He may be right on that. But he has authority to comment which he what he is doing now after being included in the lawsuit. What a lawsuit can do? And the second one of course is not supposed to know about Brouillard. Hon said they take allegations seriously. They take allegations seriously ONLY AFTER a lawsuit.

  6. There is no excuse for this diocese to be harboring or even paying these pedophiles. Hon, the archdiocese is collapsing and instead of fixing it, you added to it by being stupidly blind and insensitive to every victim that has come out thus far. That's how seriously you've taken the allegations.

  9. Thank you CCOG, Laity Moving Forward and all who have painstakingly helped to compile the information that haave pointed toward the corrupt archdiocese. The Catholic church must not allow this filth to be swept under the rug again.

    Why do Church leaders feel so compelled to lie when asked about sex abuse?

    Vince Pereda points out that one hallmark of a sex abuser is that they refuse to admit their crime, even when in counselling sessions. We certainly see this with Apurun. He will lie about his abuses to his dying day (which I hope is far off so victims can take every penny he has in his vast wealth).

    But Apurun aside, why do most bishops feel like a lie is better than confronting the truth? I doubt that most bishops are sick freaks like Apurun. I doubt that Hon is a sick freak/sex abuser as one poster had stated.

    Here is my theory on why most bishops lie about sex abuse... it scares the heck out of them, and a lie is easier than an admission that a priest has run off the rails. And because there are no immediate consequences to the lie, versus the immediate consequence of admitting the truth, lies will trump the truth for the leadership of the Church.

    Two things must happen in order to change this mentality that lies are the easier path. First, the Pope must make the consequences of the LIE more harsh and dreaded by every bishop in the world. If HON were immediately defrocked for his lie about Brouillard, every bishop in the Catholic world would suddenly get the courage needed to actually tell the truth.

    Holy Father, if you are serious about sex abuse then getting rid of Hon immediately would start the Church down the right path. While the reduction in the ranks of bishops and cardinals would be dramatic, the good news is that our Pope could start to refill those ranks with solid priests, orthodox in their belief, and truly pastoral and giving in attitude, rather than looking out for self enrichment.

    Let us hope that Hon is the first sacrificial lamb to start the cleansing process that is so desperately needed in our global Church. Sadly, this is probably too much to hope for.

    But, as I mentioned above, there are two things that must happen to make the consequences of "the LIE" so great that a bishop will want to actually tell the truth. The SECOND factor is legislative action. This is why what our senators are doing is so very important.

    When laws are passed which hold sex abusive sick freaks like Apurun accountable that is good, because victims can find an avenue to have the truth revealed and receive compensation. But the really important aspect of the Guam law is to also hold employers and institutions responsible. When bishops realize that they are accountable for the actions of their priests, you can bet there will be an attempt to do everything possible to prevent abuse. And if they are truly responsible then the courts will take that into account.

    Rather than telling the "lie", bishops would want to confront the problems head on. We saw the reaction of Hon, which I believe supports this. Hon was absolutely silent to the victims. He offered prayers for Apurun, but snubbed Walter Denton. He hid from the media, not wanting to confront any issues, because he had no answers.

    BUT, as soon as he was served with a lawsuit from David Lujan, he immediately ran to the media with his tail between his legs, trying to all of a sudden make nice to everyone. And even though his efforts are merely a show, and less than truly sincere, we saw a breath of life.

    I predict the same will happen when my two factors are implemented. When Pope Francis immediately cans bishops for not telling the truth of sex abuse, and when courts hold those bishops responsible as well, we will finally start hearing bishops practice what they preach - thou shalt not lie!

  11. tim, in your june 29th post, you asked a couple of times, "Guess who?"

    it's time for the priests who knew about these horrible evils to come clean and set things right.

    to the priests who knew: don't be a hon. this is a forgiving people. but they may not be as forgiving if you decide to speak only after you've been brought to court.

    1. Which priests know who, what, when and when is a primary problem affecting our Church of Agana. Who can we trust? What do we do with rumors that have been whispered all these years? To whom can we freely go to confession? Things with our priests will NEVER be the same. All of the priests know one situation or another. FATHERS, YOU KNOW. COME CLEAN.

  12. Unbelievable! And to think we had high hopes when Hon came on board. All we got is another liar.

  13. Louis Brouillard, John Wadeson, Louis Camacho, and then Apuron himself, Sex Abuse that have been covered up by Apuron and his minions at the Chancery and possibly by other clergy over the years. Hon also by his inaction especially after being notified of these abuses, given he is now in charge of this Archdiocese is a party to all this ruckus. Who is holding Hon's ass to the fire to do something about this? Aside from the apology for Brouillard's confession, is he working to address the coverup of Wadeson, Camacho and now Apuron? What is the status on Apuron's Investigation, if it has even been initiated? Has Camacho really been exenorated? Was his canonical investigation winged from the Vatican? Whats going on Hon????

    1. And why hasn't Hon gotten rid of (Fr.) Rudy who scandalizes the faithful with openly having a mistress?

  14. You want answers? Ask Bibi. He knows all. And the more he denies knowing, the more you know that he knows!
