  1. Mr. Roy Quintanilla, you are a pillar of strength. Someone the people from this island can use to be strong and put their best foot forward in changing the type of things that are grievous and unjust. I believe more islanders need to wake up and smell the coffee instead of being downwind of the chancery and putting up with the stench and lies emanating from the likes of Apuron. I will join the next protest since I have had enough and convinced that Apuron’s silence has spoken for him. As serious a claim made by you not to be responded immediately to only tells me that Apuron continues to be that arrogant demigod where he is not man enough to either deny or apologize. What does he have to lose? No confinement and yes possibly losing a legacy already tarnished to no end… So basically nothing… There is one thing to gain and that is manning up by stepping up to the plate. Right or wrong, show us why you think you should lead the faithful, unless taking ones time to huddle and do damage control is how the catholic church continues to protect its predators.
    Enough said since I wanted to let you know that what you did was remarkably strong.
