Still, Byrnes insists “we can’t rush to judgment and condemnation.” - Detroit News

Dear Archbishop Byrnes.

Those of us who have been in the depths of this battle for several years at great personal cost understand that at this point you must speak generally and pastorally. We also have great confidence that you have been duly and severely informed about why you have been uprooted from your home and cast into this place which has endured decades of internal hell, despite its calm Catholic face. Nevertheless, given the horrible consequences if Apuron is ever allowed to return, we must continue to restate the facts.

What you see being played out before you on our island of Guam is anything but a "rush to judgment." What you see being played out before you is the result of years of painstaking research, prayer, and effort under the most grueling of conditions given the absolute power of Archbishop Apuron to crush us, using all the resources of the Church as he has threatened to do.

What you see before you on our island of Guam is a phenomenon not possible without the Holy Spirit. 

The faithful of Guam are non-confrontational to a fault and that is exponentially true when it comes to their Church. The faithful of Guam, for decades, even went so far as to threaten their own children into silence when those same children tried to tell those parents about their sexual brutalization at the hands of some of Guam's clerics, including Apuron. Thus, for those same faithful to now stand up and stand up publicly against the hierarchy of this Church is evidence of just how deeply the faithful have been moved by all that has been done to them over the decades of abuse.

Despite what you may read, this is not about a few old people upset about some changes in the liturgy. In fact, the liturgy of the Neocatechumenal Way and the liturgy of the Roman Missal (they are different) never intersect. And for almost twenty years, despite Apuron's growing disdain for anyone who didn't support the Neocatechumenal Way, the majority of the faithful held their peace and were willing to live and let live.

However, in 2013, when Apuron threatened a priest, known to have resisted the NCW, with an "arduous and painful closure to (his) assignment," it was obvious that there was something much more monstrous happening than a variation in the liturgy.

A year later, Apuron publicly canned another priest who also was known to have resisted the NCW. And then Apuron proceeded to debase and defame him in the public media.

A few months after that we discovered that while parishes and schools struggle to stay alive (some are massively in debt) Apuron secretly gifted his NCW friends with a mega-million dollar asset. This was followed by an almost weekly campaign of lies in our Catholic newspaper in an effort to cover up his crime.

In the midst of this, Apuron, through the Neocatechumenal Way, hid two NCW priests (John Wadeson and Luis Camacho) whose alleged sexual misdeeds had come to light.

Then came the horrific accounts of sexual abuse by Roy, Walter, Roland, and the particularly painful account of the now deceased Joseph "Sonny" Quinata, as shared with us by Sonny's mother and brother.

Of particular note is the testimony of Sonny's brother John "Champ" Quinata since his is the one testimony from someone who is the nearest thing to a witness. The other victims were molested and raped and then threatened into silence until now. However, Sonny told his brother, and forty years later, his brother, John, spoke for Sonny beyond the grave. You can and should watch it here:

  1. thanks, tim. i hope archbishop byrnes reads this. or alternatively, i hope he gets to hear it directly from you or someone else who also can explain everything with as good clarity.

    in his first q&a with the media that was just broadcast live, archbishop byrnes seems to think that the protests and pickets originated from the sex-abuse accusations against apuron. i hope someone tells him soon that that's not the case. fr jeff: i see you were at that press conference--please tell him!

  2. Best Academy Award for Best Actor!! Tim's actor.

    1. Do you value what's left of your face? Then don't ever say that to Walter. But let me know if you'd like the opportunity. I'll arrange it. And then, watch. BOOM!

    2. The only actors in this ordeal are you scum bag Neos! Your pedophile bishop, your false prophet Kiko, script writing Uduvaldo and piss poor reader Dakon Tenorio. Your arduous and painful journey off this island is just beginning. So shut up and enjoy the ride. WDG

    3. Anon 1:59 PM I thought they were ALL Tim's actors..Does that include Sonny's Mother and Brother too??..Last we heard Sonny's mother is A woman..doesn't that make her an Actress?..Why are you singling out Walter?...Are you afraid He's going to mention your name?/

    4. ANON 1;59 PM...A least these Actors are getting Better reviews than you low life scum bags..

  4. Good write up Tim.

  5. great blessing no more local bishops for a decade!

  6. Great op-ed. Apuron's maligned victims and their families should sue the lying Neocats for slander, libel, defamation of character, emotional distress and whatever else goes with that type of litigation. Totally bankrupt them!
