Contrast what Fr. Jeff said today in the Q and A with what Attorney Ed Terlaje said in 2011:
Fr. Jeff: "There has never been a dispute that the Archbishop of Agana was in charge of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and its incorporation. That was never under dispute. "
Attorney Ed Terlaje's opinion memorialized in the agenda for the AFC meeting of September 7, 2011:
At the very heart of this whole issue was whether or not the Archbishop retained control of the property. So after all this, all this hell, all this work, all this money, all this...., we are on the cusp of slam dunking this and smashing through with the TRUTH, Jeff completely annihilates the very premise of everything we have done by giving the NEO's the argument they have made all along: that Apuron retained control of the property.
The good news is that a grant deed was executed and title to the property is firmly back in the name of the Archdiocese of Agana. The bad news is we still have to fight the Neo propaganda.
This is what happens when you put nice guys in charge of stuff when you need competent people. This issue IS SO DAMN CRITICAL. It was a slam dunk. My job could have been over. Now it's NOT.
