The following was sent to me by a sister who was falsely accused by Tim Rohr of being the Archbishop as she was posting in the jungle. The person who was falsely accused as the Archbishop has disclosed her name in this post. She was the anonymous poster whom Tim Rohr accused as being the Archbishop.
I was very saddened and upset after reading comments from guampdn.com., particularly from Mr. Tim Rohr who used the word “a- -“ in his comment towards the Archbishop. Days ago, with these emotions, I went on Jungle Watch for the first time and ended up getting into a dialogue with Mr. Rohr. I wish I had NEVER gone on the blog and I NEVER will again. What came of our dialogue was a downward spiral of negativity, attacks and blatant offensive talk towards our Archbishop in the comments. The MOST DISTURBING is that those commenting, including Mr. Rohr himself, assumed I was Archbishop Apuron! On the blog there were comments, particularly: ’JUST CONFIRMED THIS IS FROM APURON’ and another who confirms, ‘I’VE KNOWN THIS MAN SINCE HIS HIGH SCHOOL DAYS. THIS IS OUR ARCHBISHOP’. The other comments are just plain derogatory and get lower and lower.
I learned of this blog from Jungle Watch. I figured Mr.’ Rohr and his followers’ (as quoted from the PDN) obviously read your blog since they reference it a lot. I wanted to honor Mr. Rohr’s request to reveal who I am, since he honored mine in placing our dialogue on his Jungle Watch Home Page.
I do want to ‘shine a spotlight’ as heard from Chuck White on PNC: -I went to listen to a catechesis in my parish.
-I started an itinerary of faith formation which has:
+led me to open the Scriptures
+led me to appreciate and have a greater love and reverence for Jesus Christ, His Church and the Sacraments
+led me to discover the richness of the Magisterium, the documents of the Pope and the Catechism of the Catholic Church
+led me to Prayer and to discern God’s Will in my life
(WHY ATTACK SOMETHING BRINGING ABOUT SO MUCH GOOD IN MY LIFE, THE LIFE OF MY FAMILY AND SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE)
People can speak and attack, they can say things out of context and repeat hearsay BUT no one can take from me what I am living and experiencing….THE PEACE AND JOY OF LIVING IN THE GRACE OF GOD! For this I am grateful and I will shout it from the mountain tops!
This Way has also led me to discover my vocation. I am NOT the Archbishop nor a priest. I could never be a priest because I am a woman. My name is Melannie San Agustin a homemaker and mother of twelve children. CONSIDER THIS…So many people thought I was the Archbishop and they attacked but it’s just me. They were wrong in their assumptions. They said they confirmed it but how could they? One said he has known him since high school and it was definitely him but it was just me. Very simply…they were wrong and are wrong about a lot of things.
