GUILTY

Posted by Tim

If there was ever anyone who incriminated himself by his own actions it is one Anthony S. Apuron.

In the Father Paul affair, he incriminated himself by blabbering about how he had been stalking Fr. Paul for two years. If disobeying an order was the real grounds for firing Gofigan of Santa Barbara Parish, then there was no reason to stalk him for two years. Yet this is what he said he did at a clergy retreat in the Philippines in October of 2013.

In the Msgr. James affair, if the charges against Msgr. James were true then Apuron shouldn't have had any problem in giving Msgr. James the written list of charges. Yet he refused. Apuron NEVER gave Msgr. James a written list of charges because Apuron knew that Msgr. James could refute them.

In the RMS property affair, if Apuron knew that what he was doing was a good thing, then we would have seen a big announcement in the Umatuna about his giving the property to RMS "for perpetual use." We would have seen such an announcement because we had been told ad nauseum about how RMS was "gift for Guam." So giving the property to RMS "for perpetual use" would have been something to celebrate. Instead, the gift was kept under wraps and was only discovered three years later.

Regarding the sex abuse cases against him, if Apuron was innocent then there was no need to go into hiding and attempt to change his appearance. If he was innocent he would have walked outside into broad daylight and invited an investigation to clear his name. But he didn't. He ran and hid.
