The following comments from Tim Rohr himself reveals the true agenda behind LFM protests:

The idea is to make a loud bang so the whole world can see and hear the monstrosity of evil that Kiko Arguello through the likes of Pius the Putrid has set upon the world. Believe me, we are accomplishing far more here than Rome could or would ever do. So join us. Make some noise."

Great. Yes, let's have the cops. Imagine the photo op! Imagine Rome's reaction to a front page picture on the PDN with cops beating back Catholic protestors in front of a Catholic Church. LOL Bring it on, fools.
How far is he willing to go to bring about this "loud bang"? And what kind of "loud bang" is he expecting to get Rome's attention? What is the biggest attention getter? Would it not be violence? Anyone who looks at the newspaper knows that all the extremely bad news are always printed on the front page; therefore, Rohr's "loud bang" has to be of a highly scandalous or violent nature in order to get Rome's attention.
The jungle is not looking to rally troops. How do we know? We live in a world of social media where Tim Rohr has already voiced his opinions in the radio, television, and internet. The protesters were visible with their signs at the Cathedral and the Archbishop's birthday party. Their activities have made headlines in the media. Their members have expressed their personal views in the opinion pages of the Post and Pacific Daily News as well as in radio talk shows. Therefore, the people of Guam already knew what is going on and do not need a pamphlet handed to them after Mass to inform them.
Thus, those leaflets that LFM gave out to people after Mass on church property were not meant to distribute information because even an atheist living on Guam for at least the past two or three years would already know what is going on in Guam's Catholic Church through the media. LFM was not there to distribute information that is already known, but to incite some kind of "loud bang." They were also not there to rally troops because they already have the troops despite that they are very few in numbers. Their agenda is found in Tim's very own statements - to make a "loud bang" and get Rome's attention.
After two years of accomplishing absolutely nothing, their frustration and desperation have led them to violate the laws of free expression. Trespassing and unlawful solicitation are only misdemeanors. However, these illegal protests can lead to serious crimes if a parishioner, priest, or protester allows his emotions to get out of hand. As someone pointed out, there is a REASON why we have laws regarding the limitations of free expression. There is a REASON why there are laws stating that protests and demonstrations are to be held in public-forum areas only. It is so that people cannot simply do whatever pleases them otherwise we end up in an uncivilized, disorderly society. It was also brought to my attention that before the illegal incident at the Chalan Pago parish, LFM had already distributed pamphlets to the parishes of Dededo and Tamuning.
