• Christian topics? Okay. This is what the most outspoken democrat has to say about traditional Christians: "Your beliefs are indefensibly hateful and insulting, and not what this country is supposed to be about." (Senator Bernie Sanders (D), 2017)
  • @z .Im sorry but let me clarify that-- I meant President Peter M. Christian.
  • Oh, I see. What issues do you have in mind? Whatever they are, those issues can be remedied next month. Election approaches and this president is helping the bribed crook get voted back into congress, while retaining another in his DTC&I. I wouldn't trust him with the next compact negotiation either, given the last one he screwed up badly, which had us spoon-fed impoverished by the department on wild life and Injuns. It's probably wiser to vote for the alternative. If we want change, we must first change our minds and votes. Otherwise, we should stop talking about issues which we can't change. Trump, on the other hand, has been changing the status quo. Lowest black unemployment ever, Jobs coming back, secured borders, laws enforced, China and North Korea controlled. ISIS defeated, etcetera ,etcetera etcetera.
  • Christian should be more active on the world stage like the leaders of RMI and ROP and when that happens we will start talking about him. He is not doing anything worth talking about.
  • Christian coalition supporting 2 time divorced self proclaimed molester of women and pathological liar. Hallelujah! Invite this snake to your church. Better yet leave him alone in a room with your daughter. Bet you would say hell no!

    Four priests who served in Chuuk and Pohnpei in the 1950s to as late as the 1990s are on a recently released list of Jesuit priests who have had "credible claims of sexual abuse of minors."

    The listed priests who lived and worked in the Federated States of Micronesia include:

    Rev. Thomas Denny, who lived and worked at Xavier High School in Chuuk in the early 1990s. He was permanently removed from ministry in 2002, for abuses that happened in the 1960s and 1970s but were reported in 2002 and 2012.
    Rev. John Doolan, who lived and worked at Xavier High School in Chuuk from 1957 to 1960 and worked at the Chuuk parish from 1965 to 1973. He was permanently removed from ministry in 2006 and died in 2008. He admitted to abuses that happened in the 1960s to 1970s, and were reported in 1999.
    Rev. John Garvey, who worked at Xavier High School in Chuuk from 1968 to 1971, worked at Pohnpei in 1974 to 1977, and worked at Kitti Island also in Pohnpei from 1977 to 1978. The list says the accusations were “credible after investigation,” after being reported in 2013. The abuses happened in 1977 to 1978. He died in 2011.
    Rev. John T. Ryan, who worked at Xavier High School from 1972 to 1973. He left the Jesuits in 2002. The list says the allegations, which happened in the 1980s to 1990s, were “credible after investigation.” They were reported in 2003 and 2014.
    The USA Northeast Province Jesuits, which made the list public, administers Catholic schools and parishes in the Federated States of Micronesia.

    It was released by the province superior, Father John Cecero, “hoping to contribute to healing from the pain and anger caused by clergy sex abuse and the lack of accountability and transparency on the part of church leadership.”

    Father Dennis M. Baker, current president of Xavier High School in Weno, Chuuk, wrote a Jan. 15 letter to the school’s parents and guardians, saying the list includes the names of three Jesuits who lived and worked at Xavier High School at some point.

    “According to officials at the Province, none of these allegations involved Xavier students,” Baker wrote.

    Baker told Pacific Daily News over the weekend that he just learned that a fourth priest, Denny, also lived and worked at Xavier High School in Chuuk “in the early 1990s.”

    “The allegation against him does not involve Xavier students. I only learned yesterday that Thomas Denny was at Xavier during the early 90s; otherwise, I'd have included him in my original letter,” Baker wrote in an email.

    The law firm of Berman O’Connor & Mann, which is representing dozens of Guam clergy sex abuse plaintiffs, last week started reaching out to those who were sexually abused in Chuuk and Pohnpei’s Catholic schools and parishes “from the 1950s to the present.”

    It placed public notices on Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and notices in the FSM may follow, according to Attorney Michael Berman.

    Besides Xavier High School in Chuuk, the law firm also is reaching out to those who attended Pohnpei or Ponape Agriculture and Trade School, Pohnpei Catholic School, Saint Cecilia Catholic School in Chuuk, and any Catholic parishes in Pohnpei and Chuuk.

    The current president of Xavier High School said the USA Northeast Province Jesuits has had protocols and procedures in place since 2002, as part of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

    This is a comprehensive set of procedures established by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for addressing allegations of sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy.

    “If a claim of sexual abuse should ever be made, we would immediately report the incident to law enforcement. Xavier High School would fully cooperate with the investigation,” Baker wrote.

    Cecero, of the USA Northeast Province Jesuits, said the published list "notes criminal and sinful failures in the pastoral care of children. The majority of these allegations were made years or even decades after abuse occurred."

    “Any case of abuse is shocking and a profound failure. Jesuits who have offended can no longer offend. Safeguards put in place since 2002 help create safe environments for everyone,” he wrote.

    On Guam, the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases was lifted in 2016. Since then, there have been more than 200 clergy sex abuse claims filed against the Archdiocese of Agana and other defendants.

  • Its Christian the FSM President redsnapper not Christian the religion. Idiot. hehehe
  • And it’s Christian coalition not mr Christian dumb ass

    I was merely illustrating that some Christian leaders, presidents and otherwise, can be promiscuous and corrupt.
  • Then you should consider orange fuck face. He is by far the most appropriate monkey ass clown for your topic of interest. Stormy conversations on this coming up.
  • redsnapper Its about Christian the FSM President not Christian the religion or Christian coalition. Moron.
  • Either Christian the president and Christian (really Catholicism) are more relevant to us than the internal matters of D.C. that has nothing to do with us. Sometimes there is something to do with us when US is involved i.e. failed promises to protect us when N. Korea was threatening to put missiles "around Guam" or in FSM waters. No US personnel came to tell us how to protect ourselves should such missiles materialize while Guam malls and public places had military personnel and civil defense working hard to do exactly that. The issue dealing with China/US and Western Pacific is absolutely relevant to us. Most of things on this forum now is completely irrelevant to us these days.

    We need to address the issues of FSM officials' corruption and the Catholic priests concerns.
