CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Anthony Apuron, who has been removed from his post as Archbishop of Agana, Guam, after conviction on sex-abuse charges, insists that he is innocent. The former archbishop said that he is “deeply saddened” by the Vatican decision upholding the verdict against him, which is “analogous to a death sentence” because he is forbidden to live in his native Guam again. Oddly, although the Vatican disciplinary action prevents him from acting as a bishop, he remains a priest.
