Lee Webber, a former president and publisher of the Pacific Daily News, recommended two films to watch that offered some perspective on the Church situation on Guam. His article can be found here. The two films were Karadima and Spotlight. In both films, the priests were guilty of sexually abusing young boys and the Bishop covered it up.
Guam's case is very similar to the two films. Bishop Flores covered up the sex abuse of one priest. According to KUAM news dated November 2, 2009:
As anyone can see from the news report, there was a priest on Guam who sexually molested young boys and it was covered up by Bishop Flores. And this happened during the 1970s or earlier. This priest also did NOT say he was innocent. He admitted to molesting multiple victims on Guam. Archbishop Apuron, on the other hand, claimed he was innocent and is a victim of a smear campaign to remove him from his position as Archbishop.
The priest on Guam who was arrested for sexual abuse was transferred off-island by Bishop Flores; therefore, he never faced civil prosecution. However, my emphasis is that he was reported. Therefore, reporting the crime in the 1970s was not the problem.
If Archbishop Apuron was actually guilty of the same crime, Bishop Flores would have known about it and would also have covered it up. However, there was no report of any sexual molestation given to Bishop Flores regarding Father Apuron at that time. Yet, according to Quintanilla and Denton, they stated that they reported their sexual molestation to Father Jack.
The conclusion then is that Father Jack covered it up. However, the bizarre thing is that the jungle never condemned Father Jack. In fact, even Walter Denton did not condemn him in his interview with Jesse Lujan. Denton appeared to excuse Father Jack's failure to report it by stating that Father Jack was just a new priest in town and was under Father Tony. Being the new priest in town, Denton found it understandable that Father Jack would not report his superior (Father Tony) to Bishop Flores. You can listen to Denton's interview here. This reaction is totally opposite from the reaction shown by many victims who were angry at Bishops who failed to report their case, but instead chose to move the offending priest to another location.
