"Why the majority of the people voted for her is still an open question." 

- Bob Klitzkie on Tall Tales this past Friday.

Bob had just finished his regular Friday segment wherein he replays the video-recording of the now-governor's testimony at a legislative public hearing in 2013 relative to a bill in which she argues against providing normal medical care to children who survive failed abortions. 

Functionally the governor's testimony was: LET THOSE BABIES DIE

The larger question behind Bob's question is why would the "majority of the people" vote for a governor (twice now) who has been radically and publicly supportive - for a very long time - of what amounts to a vicious and concerted genocide of her own people, and wherein her own people support (i.e. their votes in the last two elections) said GENOCIDE


To complicate the question, (or rather Question No. 2) the governor is an aggressive advocate of all things CHamoru even while she viciously pursues an agenda that has already monstrously devastated the same CHamoru (population) - which brings to mind the immortalized lament of the late Senator Elizabeth Arriola when she attempted to stop the murder of the "CHamoru" in 1990:

"Let me tell you, at the rate Guam Memorial Hospital is aborting children, between 400-600 a year, and most of them are not even reported. Where are the lives that we are going to protect and preserve? Here we go talking about indigenous rights and self-determination. What good is all that if we don't have our followers to follow and enjoy the fruits of our labor, of this generation's labor, of your labor and my labor to fix this island and have autonomous rights to govern our people?"

 - quoted in: Asian/Pacific Islander American Women: A Historical Anthology, pg. 372, edited by Shirley Hume, Gail M. Nomura

Complication No. 3 would be the fact that the population of Guam is reportedly 85% Catholic. 

To be clear, the following is copied directly from the Catechism of the Catholic Church which is functionally the compendium of unchanging Catholic teaching, i.e. one is not Catholic if one does not wholly subscribe to the following:

2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.75

God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.76

2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae,"77 "by the very commission of the offense,"78 

75 Didache 2,2:SCh 248,148; cf. Ep. Barnabae 19,5:PG 2 777; Ad Diognetum 5,6:PG 2,1173; Tertullian, Apol. 9:PL 1,319-320.
76 GS 51 § 3.
77 CIC, can. 1398.
78 CIC, can. 1314.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1992 Edition) footnotes the issue of abortion to the "Didache" since the Didache is considered to be one of the most ancient and original sources of Catholic teaching - even before the name "Catholic" came to be attached to Christianity. 

So let's repeat the Didache:

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.

Given Guam's fawning over the "Kamalen's" hair every Dec. 8 and all the other ritual paraphernalia relative to Guam's purported ritual, cultural, and historical attachment to Catholicism, we have to ask the following WHY's?

Kamareras protect Santa Marian Kamalen as she protects Guam - PDN

  1. Why are the same "Catholic" CHamoru's aborting their babies at a genocidal rate?
  2. Why are the same (some of the same) CHamoru's who ritually brush the Madonna's hair every Dec. 8, wholly politically aligned with the party of the current governor who unashamedly assails the unborn at the aforesaid genocidal rate.
  3. Why does this same governor continue to be permitted to present herself for Holy Communion before the Archbishop of Agana - or his delegate - AND proudly, at the Cathedral Church of the Archdiocese of Agana, on TV, and without impunity?


The cynics among us could certainly speculate that it is because the governor owns the bank which functionally owns the archdiocese - but that's another story. Or maybe not. Nevertheless, we will deal with that another time.

So, we go on. 


The "short answer" is that the "people of Guam, " and specifically the majority of Guam Catholics, DO NOT CARE. 

They DO NOT CARE about abortion as a political, moral, or religious issue. THAT'S THE FACTS. The numbers do not lie. 

In the past two gubernatorial elections, the Guam public, 85% of whom are Catholics, had very clear choices between a vicious advocate of death in the womb (the current governor), and a serious pro-life champion, Sen. Frank Aguon, Jr. - the very senator, who in 2013, set forth the bill to provide normal medical care for children who survived failed abortions: living children who lay writhing and crying on the same table upon which they were supposed to have been delivered dead.

But OOPS. 

They were not dead.


Nevertheless, Guam's mostly Catholic population has now twice elected the most vicious baby killer in Guam's history to be their governor, while said baby-killer governor presents herself proudly, and without compunction or impunity, for reception of Holy Communion at the altar of Guam's own Cathedral church, and, whereupon said governor is happily presented, at Holy Communion, the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity or our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ - who suffered and died, nailed to a cross, as innocent and as brutally murdered as these voiceless victims of the womb.

Informed Catholics in Guam - of whom there are apparently few... even amongst our Catholic clergy who smilingly present the Body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to our duly elected "Catholic" governor, can't help but recall the words of St. Paul:

Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice.  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.  Therefore are there many infirm and weak among you, and many sleep. (My note: Sleep = DIE.)

One might wonder what has befallen our Catholic Church in Guam via the horrific consequences of clergy sex abuse and the resultant bankruptcy which shall see the alienation of more than EIGHTY church properties, including several beloved church properties

However, some of us see this sore judgment as God's recompense for electing and re-electing Guam's most brutal anti-life governor by the very people who swear to their Catholicism - but prefer their politics. 

God help us.

But he probably won't. 

Not now.
