Well, what do you know.  Thirteen years ago, two Japanese Catholic laymen protested the Neocatechumenal Way in their diocese.  Their "shepherd" writes two scathing pastoral letters against them, defaming them.  The laymen prevail in court.  Same shit, different bishop.

Takamatsu Bishop Ordered To Pay Compensation For Defaming Two Catholics

A court in Japan has ordered Bishop Fukahori Satoshi of Takamatsu to pay compensation to two Catholics who sued him for defamation in a dispute over a seminary.

Presiding Judge Uehara Hiroyuki of the Matsuyama District Court on June 25 ruled that two pastoral letters issued by the bishop in 2000 and 2001 defamed Kuribayashi Takamitsu and Morioka Genzo. He ordered compensation of 400,000 yen (US$3,400) to each of the laymen.

Kuribayashi, 42, and Morioka, 66, had opposed the establishment of the Redemptoris Mater diocesan seminary run by the Neocatechumenal Way in Takamatsu, about 520 kilometers southwest of Tokyo. They also opposed construction of a building to house the seminary. Read more.


  1. Hmm... why bother with the 5,500 Catholics out of more than 4 million people there, they should just close the parish and move to where there are more Catholics.

  2. The late Bishop Fukahori moved to Italy when the Takamatsu RMS was finally shut down. Oops - the kikos said the RMS was only "moved to Rome" and "renamed to «RMS for Japan»" and "having mgr.Fukahori as honorary rector".

  3. I say kick the stupid neos outta here. What say ya'll?

  4. Been saying that!

    Out with apuron and the neos!

  5. According to the article, there were 28 students, but only two were Japanese, the others from Italy, Spain and South America. Typical of the NCW, as in Guam: They jump start a seminary by importing men from mostly South America to make it appear that their movement has energized the diocese with men responding to "God's call" to the priesthood. Why don't they just build their seminaries in South America and leave us alone?!

    1. It is the same everywhere, the RMS factories are usually filled with the offspring from NCW families from other countries. These young men generally do not know much about the true Catholic faith and Catholic traditions, their faith knowledge is limited to what they have heard and experienced in their "small communities".

    2. Not only are they born into the cult, the children are corralled into forming separate communities set apart from their parents. The conditioning begins early that they know nothing else. These are the poor souls we should be praying for the most.

      They had no choice as innocent young impressionable children. Do we afford them the same now that they are adults?

    3. This is a very interesting comment. It probably has some bearing on the death of a teenager I heard about (though I have few details and naturally it's grievous for some).

  6. I think laypeople can go to a laycourt (alone or as a groupe) against their Bishop, only in financial matters.
    They can and should go against their Bishop, in a church court, if - together with an ordained priest, incardinated in the Diocese - they are convinced, that the "Credo" or the Moral teachings of the Catholic Chrch, are mishandled, ignored or changed by their Bishop.

  7. Our new Bishop was just installed in our Diocese and it was really gratifying that He mentioned that a Bishop must include His Laity in the daily function of the Catholic Church!

    I am thinking how awesome that was and wishing that happened to My Island of Guam!

    God Bless Our New Bishop!

  8. She did not know him by name, but she knew he would come...

    I allowed you, My child, to become aware now in full measure of the evil in the teaching institutions of My Son's Church.
    A new theology of morals has been set among you.
    And what is it but a creation of Satan!
    The Commandments of the Father were given, and no one shall cast them aside.
    What man, in his pride, has the knowledge from the Holy Spirit to change these Commandments to satisfy his basic fallen nature?

    Cleanse the seminaries
    I ask as your Mother that the clergy, bishops in rule, must cleanse their seminaries and places of teaching.
    All heretics must leave.
    Discipline must be restored in My Son's Church.
    You will not compromise My Son's Faith and House.
    You will not condone sin with permissiveness.

    She knew the darkness would soon follow...

    1. Not only is the NCW anti-Council in regard to bishops' subsidiarity altogether, it is anti-New Evangelisation in largely taking this away from the bishop and the ordinary church members.

      Smoke and mirrors in canon law and organisational relationships (sadly not unknown outside the NCW also) are bad for faith and morals.
