Obviously, CCOG President David Sablan feels that the facts were already laid out in the jungle and that it should not take the judges too long to decide that the Archbishop is guilty. The fact that the canonical trial is taking this long is actually good news. Why? Because the three judges are not relying on so-called facts from the jungle. After all, the jungle has been known to bring forth accusations against any bishop they do not like.
For example, when Archbishop Hon lectured Father Mike Crisostomo and Father Jeff for disobedience, the jungle was upset about it. They were so upset that Tim Rohr even came out with an accusation against Archbishop Hon. According to Tim Rohr:
This guy is tricky. Hon will get his revenge on us and here is how he is going to do it. He's going to bring up an accusation of sex abuse against Fr. Mike Crosostomo. He's going to use someone who "makes his bed with whoever will sleep in it." Stay tuned. This is one evil dude.Below is a screenshot of that accusation:
Tim Rohr also went further and publicized his accusation in the media. He went on air in the Patti Arroyo talk show on September 26, 2016 and said that Archbishop Hon has someone in line ready to accuse Father Mike Crisostomo of sexual abuse. You can listen to it in the weblink below:
K57 Interview with Patti Arroyo
The question is.....how did Tim know who this "someone" was when Archbishop Hon had no idea who he was? If Archbishop Hon was supposed to have this person in line ready to make such an accusation, why is it that Hon did not know the person and Tim did? By the way, whoever this person is, he never came out to make his accusation against Father Mike.
Therefore, the three judges on the canonical trial will not swallow everything the jungle says. This is why the canonical trial is taking long, and that is actually good news. However, this brings us now to Archbishop Byrnes. It is already obvious from some of the postings and comments made in the jungle that they are not pleased with some of Archbishop Byrnes' decision. So, what accusation are they going to bring forth against Archbishop Byrnes?
Under this thread, Jokers Wild suggested that the person may have come out, which may explain why Father Mike was not transferred to the Yigo parish. First of all, the intention of this OP is not on Father Mike or on the unknown person. The accusation was made against Archbishop Hon. Tim Rohr accused Archbishop Hon of setting up someone to bring a false charge of sexual abuse against Father Mike. That was the accusation.
Furthermore, the accusation was not made at the time Father Mike brought up the moratorium. Why? Because on the exact same day, Tim Rohr made the following post on his blog, which can be found here. According to Tim:
Hearing that something bad happened to Fr. Mike Crisostomo yesterday. Hon, I guess you want violence.Below is a screenshot shot of that post:
Rohr was referring to the fact that Father Mike was scolded by Archbishop Hon for refusing to read his letter. If you read the thread under that particular post, Father Efren posted explaining how Father Mike was treated by Hon. The post above was made on the exact same day that Rohr posted his accusation against Archbishop Hon. All you need to do was look at the dates of the two posts.
