Last Friday, June 16, days after he was completely blocked from a position on the newly elected presbyteral council, Msgr. James Benavente submitted his resignation to Archbishop Byrnes for his position as Delegate for Church Patrimony.

Kiko Hate

From the moment Msgr. James was appointed to that position by Archbishop Hon, the Kiko's had gone ballistic. 

From the beginning of the Kiko-empire on this island, Msgr. James was the one person who had to be crushed, and now he had gone from near banishment to a powerful position overseeing the property of the Archdiocese of Agana, property the Kikos had coveted as theirs. 

Msgr. James must be crushed some other way!


The future of the NCW on Guam depended on Apuron's successor being a neocat, and Msgr. James, perhaps the most likely prospect to succeed Apuron, was not a neocat. 

So he had to be destroyed. 

But how to do it? Msgr. James was very well-liked, especially by many of the island's powerful families who contributed mightily to the support of the diocese and particularly to the Cathedral. 

This relationship with the island's aristocracy made him even more hated by the evil step-sisters, David and Adrian. And he was just as despised by several other clerics, though not as blatantly as the step-sisters. 

The bottom line is that people liked Msgr. James because he liked them and treated them as human beings, something certain brain and soul dead clerics on this island don't get. 

So the pathetic dogs who were too lazy to get off the porch had to destroy Msgr. James because he made them look bad just by being Msgr. James. 

The destruction of Msgr. James was plotted and planned for several years, but the evil step-sisters got the green light from Pius the Putrid in July of 2014. It was time to move. It was time to "take James down."

The Attack

Msgr. James was called to the chancery on July 25, the feast day of St. James.

Thinking that Apuron was calling him to the chancery to celebrate his feast day, Msgr. James shows up to find himself forced to sit while Apuron read off a list of charges against him handed to him by the David the Villain. 

Stunned, Msgr. James asked for a copy of the charges. David the Villain refused. The next morning, David the Villain and his Adrian the Pudge showed up at his door with decrees removing him from all of his positions. 

There was no reassignment. There was no transfer to another parish. There were only decrees of removal. The goal was to get rid of Msgr. James, to force him out of the diocese.

But they overplayed their hand. They underestimated the power of JungleWatch and the growing power of a small group that would eventually become the CCOG. 

One week later, Art Ilagan and Joe Rivera, two men with a authoritative financial resumes stood on the steps of the Cathedral and refuted the claims of mismanagement that Apuron and David the Villain had leveled against Msgr. James. 

The Media blew up over this and there was rally attended by hundreds held on the steps of the Cathedral including some very powerful island business and government leaders. 

There was going to be no quietly getting rid of Msgr. James, so Apuron assigned him to St. Anthony's to get him out of the way and put David the Villain in his place at the Cathedral. 

David the Villain promptly ran the Cathedral into the ground, massively increasing its debt, and borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars that mysteriously disappeared. And to cover his incompetence, David the Villain, caused to be published one damning story after another about Msgr. James. 

Msgr. James had to be pounded into the ground at every opportunity. He had to be destroyed. So upon being cleared of Apuron's charges against him by Archbishop Hon and his appointment as Delegate for the Patrimony of the Church, the "Trained Lawyer" reported him to the police and the AG, using a falsely contrived resolution by the members of the Cemeteries board. (The Trained Lawyer stated that the resolution was unanimous - it wasn't.)

DESTROY - DESTROY - DESTROY! The Trained Lawyer, the Evil Stepsisters, and the other jealous haters couldn't help but salivate over the destruction of Msgr. James. They could smell it and it made them wet their pants.

The Final Solution

Msgr. James kept quiet and slowly rose back to the ranks of pastor and trusted advisor. This infuriated the haters to no end. With Byrnes being named coadjutor bishop, there was no chance of Msgr. James now being the next bishop, but so long as Msgr. James had a say in anything, he was a danger to the rabid, foaming at the mouth, James-haters.

They needed to eliminate his voice in any issues of diocesan government and thus needed to keep him from any position on the presbyteral council and especially the college of consultors. 

How to do this? 

Msgr. James is probably this diocese's most valuable asset when it comes to institutional knowledge, but even more so, because of his ability to form alliances with the people who could most help the diocese financially during this difficult time. 

These other clerics knew this, but being infected with the rabies of hate and jealousy, the good of the diocese be damned. Msgr. James must be stuffed. He must be snuffed out. He must be shut up. How to do this? How to do this?

Destroying Msgr. James was only part of the plan. The Kiko's had been plotting to regain control of our archdiocese ever since Apuron fled into hiding last year. At first it was through Filoni and Hon. 

But once we converted Hon to the truth, he was given the boot within days and replaced with Byrnes, who Filoni and Gennarini planned to control. 

However, manipulating Byrnes was something the Kikos had to be careful about. Byrnes wasn't Filoni's secretary as was Hon. They would have to get control another way. 

It wasn't hard to figure out. They would simply get control of the presbyteral council, and with Byrnes being a "newbie," he could be led to follow the lead of this council. 

Getting control of the presbyteral council would be easy. The Kiko's had superior numbers already. The only problem was that most of them were essentially AWOL. So the statutes governing the election of the council members would have to be amended. And amend them they did. 

Regarding the right to vote, the statutes went from:

"All secular priests incarnate in the archdiocese and in good standing" 


"All incardinated priests of the Archdiocese of Agana who are active regardless of whether they are living within or outside the archdiocese."

The justification, as Fr. Jeff stated on K57 last Friday, was to include those priests who are "on mission.

That's bullshit. 

Right! Apuron, Wadeson, The Waldo, Fabio, etc. are "on mission!" Geez. And notice that the words "in good standing" were eliminated in the present statute. 

So once that was done it was easy. Pius sent out the order to stack the election to make sure Msgr. James, the one priest who could truly help restore this diocese, was eliminated. And so he was. 

And in his place? David the Villain. The pathetic louse at the root of most of the evil in this diocese.



  1. Byrnes could have appointed him and did not. A bigger mistake.

  2. Are you saying that little Davey boy is now the Delegate to the Patrimony of the Church? If so, good luck to him working with the AFC members. He'll have a rough time.

  3. Are there norms or requirements across the wider Church for how the terms of the statutes on this point are framed and has the latest re-casting of them gone outside that?

    For one thing it ought to be possible to query that various presbyters are on genuine mission, and for another, surely good standing is a sine qua non?

  4. Just finished reading Tim’s (6/20) blog re Msgr James resigning from his Hon-appointed position - Delegate to the Patrimony of the Church. Wow! What a travesty! Signs of things to come! Things could get worse before they get get better. Unless you put the brakes on, this speeding train is headed for disaster, because if you expect us to “buy in” to the Kiko-Filoni kumbaya plan ("just learn to live with us, because we've got the upper hand") then expect something worse to happen.

    Act now, Archbishop Byrnes - and reshuffle them cards: before it is too late! Or is is already too late??

  5. Basically more of the same from the usual suspects. This is exactly why I sent that challenge to Archbishop Byrnes.
    He has to choose, and choose fast.
    If it is not his way, it will be their WAY. (pun intended)

  6. Why is David "The Most Reverend" when his actions paint him out to be "The most devious", "The most conniving", cant be the most cunning as his devious plan has been discovered. He has to be the biggest ass-kissing, cry baby, sickly vicar general this archdiocese ever had. He has already been rewarded for his evil participation. There should be no compromise, Quitugua has to be defrocked, along with Adrian, the defunct Chancellor, Alberto the defunct Vice Chancellor. while we are at it, remove all NCW priests from ministry in the archdiocese. All mission priests should be removed from the payroll, the gravy train has come to a screeching halt. Lets face it, the reality is we cannot afford to support any more freebies.

  7. What more proof do you need that Byrnes is a Neocat puppet? Decent bishops don't intentionally destroy good priests like Msgr. James.

    The sad part of this travesty is that Byrnes will probably end up in Rome with a red hat reward for letting Guam's NCW heretics and thieves run wild.

    The one-year moratorium on the NCW is only symbolic. The Neocats are openly ignoring it and Byrnes isn't even trying to enforce his own orders against them.

  8. Justice for Monsignor James!

    Thank you, Tim, for posting this most important and insightful critique.

    Coincidentally, you did so on the 25th wedding anniversary of my wife and me before the first Bishop of Chalan Kanoa, while Patrick Castro, O.F.M. was our pastor.

    May the many blessings and prayers my family have received over the past quarter century redound to the spiritual benefit of the priests who provide our Daily Bread, including those in the Archdioceses of Agaña, San Francisco, and Cebu and in the Dioceses of Chalan Kanoa, Oakland, and Dumaguete.

    (Saipan still has a vocation shortage, too, so please cut Bishop Ryan Jimenez some slack about Father Jason Granado being there.)

  9. The NCW is a Protestant-Judaeo heresy masquerading as Catholic, basically it is a lie, and a lie cannot sustain itself. All that is false eventually implodes.

  10. Are Romeo and Melchor incardinated here in Agana? They are conductors. Retired Arroyo also?

    1. Consultors...Spell check, sorry.

  11. Archbishop Byrnes, you came to Guam from the outside. You declared publicly you are one of us; you are now a Guamanian. We accepted you and will support you. You have the authority as the shepherd of the flock here in the Archdiocese of Agana, to lead us to our heavenly reward, by doing teaching us to follow the life of Christ and to be guided by his teachings and the Magisterium of the Church. Your guidance and direction has to be managed through your fellow priests and pastors, thus their vow of OBEDIENCE to you. So, here is where we are now. Those who are not obedient and trying to pull the wool over your eyes are easily identified: They are all the NEOCATECHUMENAL WAY (NCW) PRESBYTERS. Additionally, the following Diocesan Priests have abandoned their duty to the Church and the Archdiocese, and have jumped onto the NCW bus because of their greed; pride; laziness in being pastors and fulfilling their duties as priests; and where their secret lives of debauchery and sex are flaunted as nothing more than "humans being humans". They are: David C. Quitugua; Adrian Cristobal; and Rudy Arejola. NCW Sympathizers are: Msgr. Bibi Arroyo and Joel Delos Reyes. Deacons who follow the NCW: Larry Claros and Frank Tenorio. So there you have it. The NCW teaches that God still loves you despite all your weaknesses and failures. This is true. God gave us free will to choose our way of life. All Catholics believe this. But for the NCW, they go further to say: That despite your free will, it is okay to live your lives with all your weaknesses and failures. And if you "Walk in the Way", you will be saved. If you do not "Walk in the Way" or leave the Way, you are not "one of the chosen" for the heavenly reward. Pure crap. So, Archbishop Byrnes. . . you should know who these priests are who are heretics. Reemoving them from pastoral duties and anything having to do with affairs--both temporal and spiritual--of the Archdiocese. It's tough, but this Archdiocese must be reorganized. I trust you are working on this. We may have to combine parishes under one pastor till we train and ordain true men who have the calling to serve God. Thank you.

  12. Byrnes got rid of Msgr. James instead of restoring him to his former Cathedral position because he knows the place well and he could probably trace the missing $800,000 straight back to Neocat Quitugua.

    Beneath his toothless NCW moratorium, Byrnes is protecting Filoni's stinking Neocatbox on Guam instead of emptying it.

    1. I believe Msgr. James did not want to return to the Cathedral and did not want to be saddled with solving David's mess. As for the neocats, I believe you will see a change this Sunday.

    2. It's Sunday, so what is the change? Am I missing something here?

    3. It wasn't announced. I'll find out why.

    4. Seems Joker's Wild knows about this unannounced adviso! He wants to know if you and he have the same source

      The NCW has a newly appointed delegate from Byrnes and its not good. This man is out to destroy the NCW. Evidenced by his prior press releases and vocal comments against the NCW. The aviso has not been publicly released but yet both Ror and I know, I wonder if our sources are the same.
      On a side note, the NCW continues to wait in obedience to Byrnes. We have been since his arrival. He has yet to meet with us as a whole but it is totally understood because to do so could be taken wrongly and used negatively by the jungleblog, ccog, lfm, slm and so on.
      This past March Byrnes did not celebrate the Fiesta of St. Patrick at the RMS Seminaryb but in a meeting with the seminarians 2-3 days before, he assured them that they remain with him in prayers and support. He has no plans to shut down the seminary. Remember the Seminary and Property are too different things.

      God be with us.

      By the way, its nice to be back on Guam after being gone for a couple of months.

      -Jokers Wild

  13. Super *effing easy, get rid of any and everything Neo!
    Byrnes, with all due respect, sir, please wake up! Do you really care about us, Guam Catholics? We are all lost because of those damn neos! We're begging you to help us! Please!

  14. Anyone who still trusts Byrnes after he knifed Msgr. James in the back is either an Apuron fan, or stone crazy. Evil Adrian will find a safe harbor when he returns from Canada.

    1. No, Byrnes didn't knife Msgr. James in the back. His fellow priests did.

    2. Why hasn't Byrnes dumped the traitors? He stood by and let bad priests destroy Msgr. James instead of mopping the floors with them.

    3. You're assuming that Byrnes knows all this. He doesn't. He was sent here with no information, purposely. If you know who the traitors are, make an appointment with Byrnes and tell him.

    4. In the real world, a new boss scopes out the place as soon as he arrives in order to uncover hot spots that could do him in.

      Tim and the picketers exposed Apuron's Neocat devils, both clergy and laity, long before Byrnes arrived. All he has to do is listen to them. They know that archdiocese better than he does.

      Byrnes is too slow on the draw and his moratorium is toothless. If he continues to waffle and allows the Neocats to gain momentum on him, he and the archdiocese are toast.

    5. Lets assume what you advocate is correct anon @6.44.
      My question then is: what do you intend to do about it?
