GUAM'S HORROR MAKES NEWS IN "THE ECONOMIST"

THE Pacific island of Guam is more than 12,000km from Vatican City. Yet it was in this far-flung American territory that last month the two most contentious issues facing Pope Francis—the scandal of clerical sex abuse and a rebellion by traditionalists—intertwined. Cardinal Raymond Burke spent two days on Guam presiding at the church trial of Archbishop Anthony Apuron, who is accused of molesting altar boys. The archbishop is the highest-ranking Catholic cleric to be tried on sex-abuse charges. The proceedings could last years. Cardinal Burke, an arch-conservative, is the pope’s most outspoken critic.

  1. Well brother Tony's been hard at work putting Guam in the news. You think he'll get a red hat for all he's done to Guam and for making the NCW famous?

      I beg to differ with Anonymous March 19, 2017 at 1:53 PM, it was the ncw that MADE apuron/Guam very famous, for no other island in the pacific or the world for that matter with its own "tony" millstone.

      just within the local media, apuron/island has more articles than days of the year.

      you'll find the "tony" millstones, in the island section at kmart.

  3. Brother Ton always wanted to be in the lime light, always wanted to give out his pics to people, I say he got his wish, landed himself in the pages of international news, unfortunately they are news of all his dastardly deeds. Be careful what you aspire for, you might just get it.

  5. The Economist is an extremely liberal magazine and very anti Catholic. I was reading it for years and finally stopped because of their one sideness in social issues. So i am not surprised they did a story but not because they are fair and balanced.

    1. What did the story say that wasn't true?

    2. The Economist is typical of many big name UK publications that deal in eloquent half-truths about the Catholic Church. It's essentially a toffee-nosed, atheist rag.

    3. Nothing. Just saying that we need to be careful in how we praise those who join our bandwagon. Are they really doing so to help clean and restore our Church or do they have a hidden agenda such as destroying the Catholic Church?

    4. The article has nothing to do with our bandwagon and they clearly are joining nothing. I only posted it to show how far the Apuron scandal is now reaching. If some use this news to tear down our church then so be it. We have done a terrible job defending it till now. God let the "chosen people" be captured and sold into exile when they forgot him. Are we really any different?

  6. There they go with that "rebellion by traditionalists" garbage again. They know nothing about the Catholic Church. In addition to uninformed Guam newspapers, JW needs to straighten out the Economist too.

    TraditionalISTS, as opposed to traditional Catholics, are extreme right-wing cranks most people dislike. The media are making mainstream Catholics look bad just for demanding their rights.

    1. No need to spend energy and discrediting the Economist. This post has NOTHING to do with its ideology. It was only meant to show just how far and wide the Apuron story is going. For that, we are grateful.
