Coadjutor Archbishop Byrnes' statement as reported in the Feb. 2 PDN:

Coadjutor Archbishop Michael Byrnes momentarily walks"Byrnes, for a few moments on Sunday, joined dozens of Catholics led by the Laity Forward Movement and Concerned Catholics of Guam in a peaceful protest.
Byrnes said it’s safe to say he respects and supports the peaceful picketers’ desire for justice, and “a clear answer.”
The picketers have been calling for Apuron’s removal as archbishop of Guam and for Apuron to be defrocked because of his alleged sex abuses and his alleged leadership failures."

Image result for DUELImage result for JOUSTOn another blog two bloggers, Anonymous and Diana, jousted over the activities of Archbishop Byrnes on Sunday. The contest is set out below with my emphases:

  • He will be found guilty unless Rome decides to cover up and hide him. Even archbishop Byrnes joined in the protests. So that in itself showed a lot.

  • Dear Anonymous at 11:17 pm, 

    Archbishop Byrnes did not join the protest. That is a false rumor being spread in the jungle....just like the false rumor that there is no canonical trial. Tim created the rumor that is no canonical trial. He is wrong. It is the jungle who spread false rumors and you fell for it.

  • Some people like anon. 11:17 can't think for themselves. If Byrnes had joined the picket line, it would be in the photos of JW blog. Just look at what happened before. JW spread the false rumor that Apuron was hiding out at the Seminary, and a bunch of old ladies comes storming the seminary demanding to see Apuron. No common sense at all. Just believe everything that comes out of Rohr's mouth without questioning him.
  • Dear anon at 10:12 pm, please, tell us how can money buy you healing?
  • Go check out the photos on pdn. Lol. The archbishop was protesting too. It's online for the world to see. Lol. Wait, you gonna say it's photoshopped?
  • Dear Anonymous at 4:25 am,

    And you believe the anti-Catholic media? Was Archbishop Byrnes holding up any signs? That alone should have told you the truth.
  • The photos are very clear, he was walking with the protesters. He wasn't standing next to or walking around them, he was in line with them. You cannot deny or pretend it didn't happen.

    But why he did that is up to him to answer.
  • Dear Anonymous at 6:55 am, 

    He was trying to get to his destination without causing any disruption to your peaceful protest. If he was truly protesting, he would be walking the line longer than "momentarily" and he would be holding up a sign.
  • Diana, were you there to see what archbishop Byrnes did or are you just assuming again? What's funny is that the whole point is that THIS archbishop doesn't just hide like brother tony is doing. At least archbishop Byrnes walked with the protestors. And who says the neos are the true Catholics?

  • Abp Byrnes came out of the east side of the cathedral to greet some people arriving for the mass. He then walked to the front and got in line walking toward the front steps. As he got out of line to enter the cathedral he said, "I'm sorry for interrupting your rosary."
  • Archbishop Byrnes walked the line a bit greeting picketers. When he realized we were all deep in prayer, he apologized for disturbing us and left the picket line to say mass. Kudos to him for the gesture, but Tony Apuron is officially still the Archbishop of Agana and must be defrocked.
  • Sooooooo who wins the duel:

    Here's a little help. This picture appeared in the Pacific Sunday News for January 29 along with other pictures of the picket line in front of the Cathedral Basilica. Credibility counts.
