NO MORE OF OUR MONEY FOR APURON

June 30, 2020

News Release

Archbishop Byrnes discontinuing
monthly honorarium to Bishop Apuron

The Archdiocese of Agaña will no longer remit a monthly honorarium to former Archbishop Anthony Apuron.

The decision by Archbishop Michael Byrnes will become effective Wednesday, July 1.

Bishop Apuron was found guilty of sexual abuse of minors by the Vatican’s Apostolic Tribunal of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith two years ago. Bishop Apuron had appealed the initial finding in 2018 but the Vatican announced on April 4 of 2019 that the Tribunal had “upheld the sentence of First Instance finding the Archbishop guilty of delicts against the Sixth Commandment with minors.”

With the removal of office, the Archdiocese has still remitted a monthly honorarium of $1,500 to former Archbishop Apuron, even during this time of bankruptcy.

“The monthly honorarium has been, to say the least, very difficult for the victim survivors of sexual abuse to comprehend,” Father Ron Richards, Episcopal Vicar of the Archdiocese of Agaña said in a letter to Bishop Apuron last week. “The victim survivors see this honorarium, to a credibly accused violator of delicts against the Sixth Commandment, as contrary to justice and a continuation of the abuse they suffered at the hands of the clergy.”

“Archbishop Byrnes has heard from more of the victim survivors,” said Father Ron. “Recognizing the pain these survivors have experienced from the sexual abuse in the past, he sees the continuation of remitting this honorarium as a further deepening of the wounds they are trying to heal from.”

Archbishop Byrnes remains on extended leave off-island after undergoing hip surgery earlier this month.

BECAUSE OF THE VIRUS?

"The surreal cancellation of normal Catholic life by so many bishops around the world 'because of the virus' has created difficult sacramental situations which no reasonable Catholic could ever have expected to face."

NEO-MARXISM AND USEFUL IDIOTS AS MADE KNOWN TO US BY PATRISSE CULLORS AND TIMOTHY GUILE

Posted by Bob
Useful idiots" as Lenin would say - Museum-Quality Poster 16x16in ...The post that ran on Monday drew some interesting comments which are set out below. A term that came up in the back-and-forth was "useful idiots" defined "... Lenin is credited with describing as "useful idiots," i.e. one who propagandizes for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and is cynically used by the cause's leaders." One of the commenters challenged the accuracy of the  post's tying BLM to neo-Marxists and then went on to embrace the term, "useful idiots." Here are the links and an article quoting Patrisse Cullors one of three founders of BLM quoted thusly, “Myself and Alicia are particularly trained organizers — we are trained Marxists."(Click on the link to watch the video.)

This piece is very theoretical, yet makes an interesting empirical claim: 'The grand unifying principle for the Marxists behind the Black Lives Matter movement is that everything—and they mean everything—can be reduced to “oppressors” versus the “oppressed.”' The author offers no evidence that Marxists are behind the Black Lives Matter movement. Furthermore, I was recently at the BLM demonstration on Guam. I heard no mention made of Marx, Marxism, or Marxists. Instead, one could see a billboard with Martin Luther King, Jr.'s image on it. One could also hear the name of Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu mentioned in conversation. Both of these men were (or are) Christians and men of the cloth. Although they were not present physically, they were present spiritually. At least some of those demonstrators understood themselves to be both Christian and supportive of BLM...without contradiction.

If BLM brings about a more judicious use of police force, a national conversation about race relations in American society, an awakening to the many inequalities in America, an historical appreciation of how America became America, and policies to make good the civil rights of her citizens, then I will gladly accept the tag to my name: Timothy Guile, useful idiot.


Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Confirms They Are ‘Trained Organizers and Marxists’ (VIDEO)

We already knew Black Lives Matter are radical neo-Marxists and the co-founder confirmed it during an interview this week.
Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter proudly admitted she’s a radical, anti-white Marxist.
“We actually do have an ideological frame,” Cullors said. “Myself and Alicia are particularly trained organizers — we are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories…”
Black Lives Matter is seeking to transform America by defunding the police, dismantling capitalism, ‘destroying the patriarchy,’ breaking down the nuclear family unit, emptying prisons, redistributing wealth in the form of reparations among other far left objectives.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters have destroyed small businesses, targeted churches and razed buildings to the ground.
Their goal is to bring chaos where there is order, fan the flames of class warfare and demonize Christians and conservatives.
The media praises Black Lives Matter and anyone who doesn’t bow down to them gets canceled.

CHRISTIAN OR MARXIST? YOU CAN'T BE BOTH

"It’s unclear how many Christians are going along with the current neo-Marxist collective guilt movement out of fear, a misunderstanding of what they’ve signed onto, or an authentic conversion to the cause. What is clear, however, is that you can’t be a Christian and a Marxist at the same time—not without irresolvable contradictions."



You Can Be A Christian, You Can Be A Marxist, But You Can’t Be Both
