It is not we who have incriminated Father Luis, it is the Archbishop of Agana. And here's why:...........
On March 18, 2015, the Archbishop of Agana announced that he had "initiated a canonical investigation" into the matter which led to the arrest of Fr. Luis Camacho. In doing so, the Archbishop implicitly admits that there was "suspected sexual misconduct."Junglewatch
The following is what the Archbishop ACTUALLY stated in his letter:
The archdiocese has initiated a canonical investigation and is cooperating fully with civil authorities.The phrase "into the matter which led to the arrest of Fr. Luis Camacho" was put in by Tim Rohr himself. The police made the Archdiocese aware of Father Luis' arrest, which was "custodial interference." No mention or implication were ever made of any type of sexual activity by the police or the Archdiocese. A canonical investigation was conducted because ANY ARREST of a pastor is a scandal. For example, if a pastor was found inside a strip bar, that is a scandal which can lead to disciplinary measures.
The FIRST time any implication of sex was mentioned between the girl and Father Luis was in the jungle. On March 18, 2015 (the day after Father Luis was arrested), Tim Rohr wrote in his blog (the bold is mine):
You have a responsibility to confirm or deny the veracity of this incident. Because the girl was of the age of consent, there is no crime (if in fact she consented), and no way for the public to verify the truth or falsity of this incident.............I can tell you exactly how the chancery is going to spin this.
There's no getting around the truth of the matter. So they are going to say that they are taking this very seriously, that they have a policy of zero tolerance, that they will investigate the incident, blah, blah, blah....and then he'll disappear like Wadeson.
As anyone can clearly see, the very FIRST implication of sex between Father Luis and the girl was made in the jungle on exactly SAME DAY that Deacon Steve Martinez submitted a child abuse report against Father Luis to the Archdiocese and to CPS. These allegations came from the jungle, and these allegations were made without any investigations on their part.
Therefore, Tim Rohr lied when he blamed the Archbishop for implying sexual abuse. It was Tim Rohr who perpetrated a horrific injustice on Father Luis by creating this scandal of sexual activity and finding him guilty without the due process of a trial. In fact, they even identified the sexual ACT!!! Imagine that!!! It was Deacon Steve who actually identified the sexual ACT. According to Pacific News Center (the Bold is mine):
Deacon Steve alleges that, based on his understanding, Father Luis and the student engaged in oral sex.
Furthermore, this comment made by Joker's Wild says it all. His whole comment can be found here:
Readers need to be reminded that the scandal of sexual activity was created by the jungle. GPD never said that Fr. Luis was caught in the act. It was the popular commenters over at the jungle who started that rumor. They should all be ashamed of themselves. Its understood when silence brings reason for scandal but to place scandal because of outward motives is scandalous in itself. They are responsible for that and should take ownership of the scandal they created. Instantly, the archdiocese released a statement on the matter but they( jungle people) decided they were not satisfied with it as in all things and took the matter into their own hands. So the Archdiocese did their part and have no fault in the rumors that are being passed around.
