On November 28, 2014, Archbishop Apuron threatened to use the full force and weight of "the Church" to sue an individual Catholic who made a public allegation against him regarding the sexual abuse of his relative:
NOTE: That the three "leaders" are all in Southern California and that the BIG LEADER is the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, permits me some sense of vindication. In 1977, my father and I went to the Chancery Office of the Archdiocese of Agana to report an incident involving my own pastor which I had personally witnessed. We were thrown out. My dad lost his faith and life in our family was never the same. I detailed this story in my post CHANCERY VS. ROHR: TWO STORIES. Throughout the next several years, I watched in horror as the LA Church descended into celebrated debauchery.
Coming clean is what the Holy Spirit requires for true renewal. LA, San Diego, Orange, and even Boston, despite being crippled by the left overs of those decades of hell, are experiencing real growth and renewal.
The priests and bishops will not have to pay a single penny unless they are personally found liable. It is WE the LAITY who will pay. We always pay. We paid for Apuron's presbyter playpen for 20 years (and still are). We paid for Apuron's extensive trips with those playmates. We paid for David the Deceiver's decade-long vacation in Rome. We're paying now for all those missing clergy who galavant around the world at our expense.
Let's take the worst case, Los Angeles. Altogether, LA coughed up 736 MILLION DOLLARS. LA has a population of 4.2 Million Catholics. That's a total of $175.24 per Catholic, a very small price to pay to bring some small amount of justice to the hundreds of young lives who were ruined by monsters like Apuron, Brouillard, and the late Antonio Cruz.
Get this through your head Hon, Jeff, and the rest of you wimps: We, the majority of the Catholic Faithful of the Archdiocese of Agana are SICKENED by your decades of looking the other way while your brother clergy raped and ruined our children. We are willing to pay the price, ANY PRICE, to clean out THE FILTH in our church. And since YOU won't do it, WE WILL. And we will do it through the courts since you have denied us our Church.
