Bishops prepare for battle

Slowly but surely, the bishops of the Philippine Roman Catholic Church have been preparing a campaign that will confront President Rodrigo Duterte over ‘extrajudicial killings’ – an issue which they, along with Duterte’s other opponents, have velcroed to his War on Drugs.

For months now, like generals in a war room, the clerical hierarchy has been weighing its strategies and marshalling its troops in the field ready for an all-out assault on the president and his cause. Its high command has said they wanted to give the president’s methods a chance, but – if truth be told – it’s more likely they didn’t know how to fight him. Now they believe they can take him on.

“The Church right now is asserting its influence, that’s why in the coming months the Church will be at the forefront in leading against extrajudicial killings”. That declaration, last week, came from Jerome Secillano, public affairs chief for the powerful Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) – the country’s Catholic episcopacy comprising 131 active and honorary bishops.

“(The War on Drugs) is not any more in accord with the legal processes, and the moral norms are being violated and so now is the time for the Church to speak up,” Secillano said.

The Church says it’s tried quiet diplomacy through private discussions with Duterte and his top aides. That failed it claims. What in fact it’s been doing, however, is to stage a series of sporadic sorties against the administration to asses the grass-roots support it could muster in an all-out battle for the hearts and minds of the people.

There was certainly very little that was quiet or diplomatic about a pastoral letter read out in the churches of the Lingayen-Dagupan (L-D) archdiocese on Sunday, 7 August last year – just 38 days after Duterte took office. From that we must conclude that five weeks was the limit of the grace period the Church had allowed for Duterte to deal with the drugs plague. Penned by L-D Archbishop and CBCP President, Socrates Villegas, an outspoken critic of Duterte’s narcotics war, the letter held little back. Clearly referencing Duterte and his anti-drugs campaign, here are a couple of extracts.

“Is not humanity going down to the dregs when bloodthirsty humans encourage the killers and ask for more blood? …There is a little voice of humanity in us that I believe is disturbed by the killings; but that voice of disturbed humanity is drowned out by the louder voice of revenge or silenced by the sweet privileges of political clout”.

Villegas, whom we understand has a cordial relationship with Vice President (and avowed Duterte opposition leader) Leni Robredo, however, was one of just a few Church leaders who pressed the case publically against the War on Drugs.

But the priesthood hasn’t been sitting around idly. They’ve been printing posters put up outside their churches denouncing the extrajudicial killings. They’ve been documenting killings and counselling families of the slain to build a case against the administration and law enforcement. Meanwhile, its priests are involved with a number of organisations calling for justice – among them ‘Network Against Killings in the Philippines (NAKP); an unapologetic anti-Duterte group.

Here’s an extract from an NAKP November press release. “President Duterte … and his top officials incite and encourage law enforcers to commit even more killings and even more abuses … The Duterte government encourages these abuses and even promises protection to the perpetrators, taking an already egregious human rights situation to a whole new and more dangerous level”.

At Christmas, the historic Baclaran Church in Parañaque, Metro Manila, the National Shrine to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, displayed a series of large bill-board-size illuminated photographs showing dead drug-war victims lying in streets. Around the same time Mass-goers at St Joseph the Patriarch church at San Pedro, Laguna were told that before entering they must first sign a petition calling for Duterte’s impeachment.

From the responses which they received to these and other initiatives, the Church believes that it can now meet Duterte and his forces in the field. Its aim is to severely weaken Duterte’s base by splitting his supporters. It wants to wrest back influence over the people and their political representatives that once bent unquestioningly to its will. In short they want their power back and the spoils of the victory it seeks will be to reinstate the Church’s voice in the affairs of state.

But this is a very different presidential opponent to the previous two which the Church took on and where it prevailed. Ferdinand Marcos was an ailing man and tired after 21 years in power; Joseph Estrada had been outed for mass plunder of the public purse. Both men had lost credibility with the people and had become isolated. Duterte, however, is a very different proposition.

Furthermore, Corazon Aquino – the woman the bishops backed to replace Marcos – was an easy sell to the people. The widow of a charismatic clan chief, Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, assassinated on the tarmac of Manila Airport just three years earlier, her elevation played into the swollen emotion of anti-Marcos feeling. With Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo it was even easier. She was Estrada’s vice president and constitutionally his successor. All the Church needed to do was back her publically and give its imprimatur; which it did.

We’re certain that there are some members of the CBCP who would like to become queen-makers for a third time, by lending their weight to Robredo – constitutionally, she’s in the same position as Macapagal-Arroyo was when they ensured her coronation. But that has as much chance of resonating with the people as suggesting Dracula runs the Philippine Blood Center.

Also, back then the bishops were headed by Jaime Lachica Cardinal Sin, Metropolitan Archbishop of Manila and de facto Primate of the Philippines. Iconic, larger than life, Sin was a politico-religious firebrand who believed in liberally mixing the affairs of Church and State – while putting Church interests first. In those regards, he has no equal in today’s Bishops’ Conference.

But the CBCP and its ranks of priests have bigger problems with Duterte. Marcos and Estrada had lost the people’s trust; Duterte, on the other hand, has more trust than either had at the height of their popularity, never mind when they’d fallen from grace. They were wounded by shame; Duterte is idolised.

His machine, too, is far more formidable than that of the bishops. Certainly they have a vast reach across their 16 ecclesiastical provinces which support 2,940 parishes and thousands of churches, chapels and Mass centres. But these are different times. Duterte’s pulpit is on social media and with that the bishops can’t compete. Duterte’s supporters are a broad church; they’re faithful to God and they’re faithful to him. And they see no conflict. Indeed, many believe Duterte has been sent by God to purge their land of drugs and crime. Many, too, believe that the Church has failed in protecting the flock. And so religion and morality as espoused by the clergy will be a poor weapon in this war.

Make no mistake, Filipino Catholics – 83.4 million of them – are devoted to Jesus. He’s their Saviour; of that they have no doubt. They love God above all else. Increasingly, however – and the bishops are well aware of this – their love of the Church, and more particularly its hierarchy, has continued to plummet. And so today, the Church has a serious image problem and a standing in society that is in inverse proportion to that of Duterte. His approval rating with the people hovers above 80%.

This doesn’t mean the people don’t need the Church; they do. They need to receive the Body and the Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, they need to unburden themselves of sin by confessing to a priest, they need the structure of the Mass Liturgy, they need to hear the Word of God, they need to kneel before the altar and pray as a community. They need to be there to sing and give gratitude to God and to ask for His help. These needs are as strong today as they ever were.

And there’s no getting away from that. Jeepneys – a Philippine icon and the country’s most popular road-passenger transport – emblazoned with images of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin and messages proclaiming ‘To God be the Glory’, ‘Jesus Leadeth Me’, ‘Jesus is Lord’ are an ever-present feature in towns and on roads right across the archipelago.

Probably the most colourful vehicles on Earth, their paintwork provides a strong visual aid to the country’s indomitable religious spirit. This isn’t artwork for artwork’s sake; it represents the abiding thoughts of the commuting Catholic public. And so choose how low the people’s respect for their Church’s leaders falls, their faith and religious devotion will endure.

And that’s why the bishops’ quest is a fool’s quest because. The people have their faith and they have their leader and anyone coming between the two is doomed to failure. Far from restoring power and influence to the Church, a bishops’ battle with Duterte could erode it even further. Perhaps irreparably.

  • . that’s not an act of charity…why not divert their effort on putting up rehabilitation centers, bahay ampunan or building houses and livelihood for poor fellows like me to avoid taking drugs…or to stop taking drugs…or to be used by druglords.. 😀 😀 😀 😀 …. if we stop that war which has already started, it will proliferate quickly again…I myself was shocked when I learned that there were surrenderees coming from remote places in my hometown, surprised how drugs penetrated… now back to “EJK” as some people claim…or as the media claim, how many were killed and how many surrendered? are all surrenderees killed? I believe no. but it is also important if there will be investigations if casualties really fought. oh, I also heard some policemen killed during buy bust operations ~~~~~ ???

    • you didn’t know the priests and the Church has been doing that for a long time already? they have rehabilitation centers and bahay kalinga.GOOGLE IT, THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT THE CHURCH ARE DOING.

  • The Bishops of the HRCC need to look to what they condone within their flock. They should be out there with their Priests tending the flock like shepherds of old and keeping the wolf (shabu) away from their sheep. That is their role that they have taken on in life they need to be supporting their flock ans supporting the elected officials as per Mathew 12:17 where Jesus said ” render unto Caesar that which is his and render unto God that which belongs to Him. The HRCC needs to be seen to be proactive in helping is flock which is its mandate NOT trying to topple an elected official and by doing so is trying to bring back more of the poverty and misery to this country

  • The church is always secretly doing it to topple a government they can’t dictate. They are actually hoodlums in white robes. They were unmasked by PDuterte of how treacherous and corrupt they are. They used the peoples money in investing in banks and other institutions to finance their underground activities. They are using God in their illegal activities. They’ve been fooling the people eversince of their donations. They’re not paying taxes and yet they always meddle with the goverments affairs. They were the true oppositions to some developments in the government. They were behind those politicians who opposed PDuterte’s drug wars and they will not stop until they stop PDuterte. They have financial capability to finance rallies and other antigovernment activities. They were the mafias operating on a high level operations. The government of PDuterte should address this high level mafiosos in the country or they will topple this government again in the ground level. They were against development because their earnings may subside, against peace because donations of money and properties may hasten.

  • The pro-Duterte Catholics have both their faith in God and faith in this government intact. What tries to shake it is the crossing of the lines between the Church and the State. Why both not meet in the middle and compromise? The Church is composed of people, the State are the people– the same people who want to regain a country whose values has been ravaged by incompetence and ineptness in the past. That is the WHOLE thing, not just look at ejks, because other than that, this nation is trying to stand up for peace, freedom from the bondage of poverty, for the eradication of evil from drugs, criminality and corruption. EJK accusations cannot be bigger than that vision. This country is not only for the Catholics and I believe this religion cannot claim superiority over the other sects who also has God as their saviour, but also fight for a renewed people. We only hear loud noise from the CBCP stalwarts. What about the faithfuls who are silent but give their support to this administrstion?

  • The roman catholic in the philippines is eroding his stature with the public and you cant ask the public anymore to support your cause..they/we know your true colors now…they/we know your true agenda..
    Its not easy to persuade them to do your bidding to support you…remember the fact that those who go to church are pro duterte..they go to church to serve god without any politics involved..
    So if you continue including politics in your masses prepared to decline your mass goers attending it..but i know you felt that declining in numbers…and you notice most of the church goers are in the ranks of elderly..elderly are devoted ones..they will attend whatever your homily it is…
    But your lossing the mass numbers of goers who are in the midrange down below…your lossing tons of donation coming from them isnt it?
    Rethink your action..
    You say “wag kang papatay.” What about “wag kang makikiapid sa may asawa” also child molestation of the priesthood..
    Address first your church…
    Your the roman catholic branch in the world who always meddle in politics..

  • Ang tanong ko ay ganito;

    Meron ba talagang diyos ayon sa aral at katuruan nila? Ang diyos daw ang pinaka makapangyarihan sa lahat at siyang sagot sa lahat ng kahirapan at pagdurusa. Bakit kapag ordinaryong mamamayan ang may mabigat na problema ang payo nila ay ipasa diyos na ang lahat at siya na ang bahala. Bakit ngayon silang nagtuturo ng ganong katuruan ay siyang mga nangangalsada damay pa ang mga batang nag aaral sa mga eskuwelahan nila?. Nasaan ang kapangyarihan ng diyos nila? Mahina ba silang magdasal at hindi nila makumbinsi ang diuos nila na wakasan na angnlahat ng ito?

    O niloloko lang tayo at pinapaniwala sa isang bagay na mula noon hanggang ngayon ay pinag aawayan ng mga sekta kung sino ang totoo sa kanila.

    Bakit halos lahat ng nakasulat sa sampung kautusan ay kabilang sila sa lumalabag nito?. Alak babae sugal pananampalataya sa inanyuang diyos diyosan at maraminpang iba. Sa kabila ng lahat ng ito na naghihirap ang mayorya ng mamamayang pilipino buhay hari ang nararanasan nila. Mala palasyong tirahan mamahaling sasakyan masasarap na pagkain kumpleto mula hardinero hardinera kusinero kusinera personal na driver at may magagandang asawa yong iba.

  • sana ang simbahan tumingin sila sa posetibong epekto ng war on drugs, kpag tuluyang masugpo ang druga, maraming pmilyang pilipino ang maaayos, babalik uli ang pagasa at pgmamahalan sa pmilyang winasak ng druga, hindi naman ksi ito nkikita ng mga kretiko ng gobyerno dahil hindi ito nngyari sa knilng pmilya, dito sa amin marami ng pmilya ang bumalik sa payapa at pagkakaintindihan dhil huminto na sa bisyo, nagpapasalamat sila dhil sa kampanya kontra druga. mas maraming adik at pushers ang ngbago dhil sumuko at ngparehab.

  • The state has all the power to subdue lawlessness and illegal acts. But these was blurred by erring and backsliding politucians, military and police. The church has its daily chores of reminding the faithful the wisdom of Gods words in fact most of these tainted people are in the front rows of churches. The priests have limitations too. They cant poke to all questionable individuals to mess their private dealings. If there are complaints the state take charge c/o later to prosecutors and judges later. The least the church can do is advice, remind and set example. But church workers are not perfect too. But they must assert to tame the society to be God fearing, a partner of the state in nation building in the moral and social issues. The state must also heed calls fm diff sectors and not unilaterally pursue agenda that does not pass the moral and legal std of a free loving nation. We all are morals commit sins but thru repentance and good deeds we neuralize our wrongdoings… these is where the state and the churches i mean churches of all denomination to unite to collaborate and address the ills and evils of our society…after all we are one nation and one race nobody except us that will propel our nation into greatness in Gods time.

  • You are losing your flock because of your failure to teach them well. If you did, we would have less problems in this world. You have forgotten the examples of Jesus. Instead, you like poverty, crime, greed and hypocrisy to flourish. You wanted that because you wanted to be the savior of mankind, You cannot. You have made a business out of religion. And religion does not save. God does not have its own bureaucracy. God has direct line to all of us. He knows each one of us. He does not need ceremonies and all your frills. He only needs faith. It’s as simple as that. You can never be a savior – only Jesus. If that is very difficult for you to accept, your are the problem.

  • I am a Catholic, since childhood and up until now. I truly believe in Jesus. However, I am sorry to say that I have low regards on self-righteous bishops and priests. I go to mass regularly and during homilies, I pray the rosaries so as not to listen the officiating priest. That way, I don’t get nettled by boring, not well-prepared and criticism-filled oratory.

  • CBCP your true role is to evangelize. GOD would be very pleased with you if you spend your hundreds of millions to adopt, shelter, feed & convince all illegal drug dependents to stop taking drugs. This way you’ll save their souls.

  • They call themselves ‘princes of the church’ coz Jesus is called King of all kings. What they don’t teach their flock is that although Jesus is indeed King of the universe but His’ is a Heavenly Kingdom and not an earthly one. Kaya dapat mamatay muna mga Catholic bishops bago sila maghariharian sa mundo.

  • I think it’s high time for the government to impose taxes on religious groups. They are continuously ignoring the separation of state and church. They want a stern voice when it comes to governing, then pay your dues. Like other catholic employees pay taxes. Heck! Even non-Catholics employees are paying too.

    We are no Longer a colony of Spain, gone are days when your religion is in power, Padre.

    How come fathers, when a victim of drug-users, you were not there to help the family? Not even consoling them? This is what makes me sick to call myself a catholic, but it doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God. I don’t need a structure, like a church, to profess. Nor leaders, like priests, to show me what is right and wrong. I can decide for myself. I don’t need scriptures, like the Bible, to be the basis of my faith.

    Being a Christian means living a simple lifestyle f, right? How come a lot of priests, bishops ride expensive cars, wear Italian made sandals?

    Do this, and I tell you CBCP, and the further you’ll lose church-goers. Your flock need to go to church to listen the word of God, not conniving to topple the government. To preach, not to plot. To pardon not to condemn. To help others to get better not to further the agenda of your institution.

    Help build rehab Centers. Encourage your followers to report any wrong-doings, even if it is policemen or drug-addicts (users & peddlers alike). Only the Pope is infallible. Even Pope Francis asked for forgiveness for priest &a bishops wrong-doings in the past. Why can’t you be like your leader?

  • Halos lahat nalang ng isyu nakikisawsaw ngayon ang simbahan, samantalang nung mga nakaraang administrasyon hindi naman sila nakikialam. Mga pari Binayaran ba kayo noon para manahimik o binyaran kayo ngayon para mag ingay?

  • Digong should instruct millions of Filipinos into drugs to seek refuge in Catholic Churches. That is, if they want to stay alive. Digong has to direct PNP also that there will be ‘no’ police operations to be conducted inside Catholic Church compounds.

    But there will be police operation outside perimeters – to make sure that drug trade wont happen inside. Ano sila sinuswerte?

    Also, they should not expect support from government – as no government resource will be extended. Let the refugees exhaust church’s and patrons’ resources.

    Let’s play devil’s advocate. Let’s wait and see how they would be welcomed by these loving fathers.

  • edi sa susunod ang Big Business Church na ang kumandidato… mess in the Politics na, kalimutan nyo ang separation of Church and State. mag paka ipokrito na kayo, it doesnt meen its bad in your views, it should be final and accepted by many. mga gagong pari..

  • nahhh im catholics but a realistic, priest preach can solve the drugs problem n ph u need to act to this elements before they can cause more damage. God destroy sodom and gomorah bcoz of the wickidness of mankind. were leaving in cruel world this man doing his job to preserve the safety of younger generation remember one of the biggest drug syndicate n d world are operating n ph. better to stop it before ph becomes a mexico

  • The people and most catholics believes that God is on Duterte’s side,as he was sent to get rid of the wicked in this country.And the rate the church is going,and the way the people see it,the church has sided with the wicked.

  • What is the Latin church’s solution to the drug epidemic???Or are they part of the larger yellow/ neo-liberal foreign financed(USA for one) racket trying to remove an independent minded president????

  • The catholic church represents the unknown satan in our society. Religion divide us from what God truly want us to be His children so that we will be the instrument to spread in this troubled land in living a meaningful life through peace and harmony. What incentives the catholic church can guaranttee us if they can ousted our beloved PRES. DU30? Would it be good that instead they will make a difference to bebefit and for the betterment of all filipinos? But this is not thier case in doing so. They want to create a low intensity conflict among us and for that this country of ours will befall in the devils hand. Can we allow this to happen for future generation sake? So listen to your mind because that’s what they are doing now, to manipulate us and drag us to chaos…with all the lies that they want to remain untold…no one is above us except God and the priest are humans like us that they can make they worst mistakes in thier lifetime and they will not accept of thier wrong doings…

  • Better watch out, same tactics they did to oust President Marcos before, with the “sinful” CARDINAL SIN was the head, BUT, things are very different now, many Filipinos are “SMARTER” than before, many have learned their lessons, If the Catholic BISHOPS will try that again, SORRY, because they will “FAIL” tremendously!!!!!!!

  • These bunch of church leaders are HYPOCRITEs.
    The church hieraechy has done little vis a vis resources endowed unto it for its Filipino flock. Personally, i distrust many of them in handling church finances.
    Instead of complementing Goverment efforts, the church chose to confront. As a Catholic I WONT ALLOW this.
    I hate POWER TRIPPERs!

  • Dissapointed with my church!

  • Sabi sa isang nag koment na ang mga kapari-an daw,they won’t take action unless they have reasons.Tama,magkakapera na sila ngayon.marami silang malilikum na pera galing sa masasama at sa taga yellowtards at mga gumagawa ng kababoyan sa ating bansa.Sa nakaraang administrasyon marami din ang patayan pero tahimik lang ang mga mukhang perang kapari-an,kasi wala silang mapapala o matatanggap na kabayaran.ngayon sila nag ingay kasi bumabaha ng pera.mga padre imposible na hindi nyo alam ang sentyemento ng karamihan ng mga pilipino na naniniwala sa pangulo sa pag laban kontra droga,At yung EJK na isinisi nyo sa presidente,ay naku talagang kailangan nyo na ang kanta ni ka freddie dre,na ang pamagat ay “bulag,pipi at bingi”.Wow pera pa more mga dre!

  • .

    Dissapointed with my church leaders. They had their chance to truly help in nation building through efdective spiritual guidance of its flock but it failed.
    Now, we have a working and competent president but the bishops are maligning Duterte. This is wrong. The 1987 Constitution is explicit as its states the seperation of the Church and State. Don’t tell us whats right and wrong in State affairs Bishops!

  • Cbcp wag sana mag kaiba po ang reliyion natin ibahin na ninyo mintras aga pa.my dugong muslim si prrd wag na malalain po alam naman ninyo kung anong dahilan ng gera dto sa mindanao.peace na po.

  • Hindi niyo alam? Ipanalangin niyo at hindi yong nasa kalsada kayo na ngawa ng ngawa. May magagawa ba kayo sa mga inosentent biktima ng mga addict? Kung mayroon that will be the time na nay k kayo na pagsabihan ang pangulo.

  • Oo nga naman kailangan nilang gumalaw at gumawa ng stratehiya kasi kapag wala silang ginawa kung paano pasamain ang bagong presidente eh dapat ibalik nila ang pera ni loida lewis na ibinigay sa kanila sa planong pagsira sa imahe ng Pres. Duterte para patalsikin sa pwesto at uupo si lenigaga para lahat ng dati nilang gawi para makakulimbat sa kaban ng bayan at ang pagpasabog ulit ng droga, para lahat sila masaya, di ba mga immoral na padres?

  • What is important is spirituality not religion. Religion will not save you from the fires of hell. You see even Pope Francis asked Filipinos to pray for him to GOD. But the priest and bishops do the opposite.

  • Matagal na kong hindi nagsisimba dahil sa mga ipokritong mga pari akala mo mga santo pero kabaligtaran pala lahat sila mukhang pera pero subukan mo silang hingan ng tulong ituturo ka sa mga pulitiko

  • Ang religion ay hindi basehan para maligtas sa kasalanan ng katawan lupa kundi ang taimtim na pananalig sa dios, numan religion mo basta manalig ka sa kanya, hindi mo kelangan ang mga paring satanas ng simbahan

  • Kung ganiyan ang gusto niyo cbcp magkakamatayan kayo niyan lalong gugulo kc naghahanap kayo ng away. Di ba kasalanan yan. Samantalang ang inyong homily sa mga misa pagibig ,pagmamahal sa Diyos at kapuwa tao bkit gusto niyo ang magkagulo. Ganiyan ba ang alagad ng Simbahan?

  • Patayin lahat na Pari salungat sila din nag firing squad ni Rizal sila dahilan ngayon sila nman firing squad ganti ganti lang kainin ninyo Bible ninyo father para malangit kaluluwa ninyo gago

  • Since they are interfering the affairs of govt a very far cry of Jesus Christ teaching all catholic church properties and income should be taxed including remittances to the Holy See. By this way we dont let the poor suffer by adding tax to our energy needs. So many lands and real estate are owned by the catholic church.

  • Ano ba tong mga lider ng simbahan Catolico pati kayo nahawa sa mga dilaw? Ano ba gusto nyo kapayapaan o kaguluhan? Kumikilos na nga itong pangulo natin para mapabuti ang kalagayan ng bansa natin.. Hindi nyo kasi ramdam ang paghihirap ng ibang kababayan natin kasi sagana kayo sa suporta ng mga kaibigan nyong negosyante.. Sa halip na kontrahin nyo ang pangulo natin, ituro sa mga tao ang mga pangaral ni Kristo, kulang kasi kayo sa pangaral kaya dumarami ang drug addict, tapos sisihin nyo ang pangulo sa mga nangyaring patayan.. Dapat lang kasi baka pati kayo mabibiktima ng mga addict, ingat kayo mga Reverend. Godbless.

  • OK.LET THE WAR BEGIN. Now we will enlist in our Army of the Righteous 50 000 000 Filipinos against the Church that has taken our money to save our souls. When they cannot even save their own Pedophile Souls.With a Vatican that has spent Billions of dollars on payouts to molested children’s families. Now is the time to freeze their Bank Accounts and Investments HERE AND NOW or you will never ever see the money again. They are EVIL but not stupid. They have Trillions but will watch you suffer. They never ever help in a Calamity or Assist the poor. I believe in God the Father Almighty and Jesus Christ his Only Son Our Lord. But never ever again IN this Institution of Blood Sucking PARASITES THAT PUT THEMSELVES ABOVE ALL INCLUDING THE FATHER AND SON. D–th is where they belong at the hands of the unclean infidels. No forgive me Father because I have Sinned. Forgive yourself because I am right. You will never walk through the valley in the shadow of death and fear no EVIL. Because OUR LORD HAS ABANDONED YOU. Hell awaits you. Amen. God Bless All.

  • It is obvious that they want to control this country—the PHILIPPINES—and they are openly doing so USING PDU30 and EJK—question–ARE THEY NOT BREAKING THE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE? Of course being the cowards and hypocrites that they are, they will deny their involvement! Well, whatever confrontation they want can be denied too! I believe in my God, I believe in Jesus the Christ—BUT IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT I HAVE TO DO SO ONLY THRU THE CATHOLIC CHURCH!!! I do not buy that anymore–it is IMMORAL to believe that I cannot communicate with Mother/Father God and Jesus on MY OWN!! MY GOD LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY–I was never and ever will be judged–even as I speak my thoughts now, which I’m sure you will find so unpleasant!

    • Yon ang huwag niyong ga2win ang sunugin ang mga simbahan, kinalaban niyo na ang Diyos, pag ang Diyos magalit sa atin, baka itong buong pilipinas ay lipulin niya, pag yan ay mangyari, nasaan na ang ipinagla2ban niyo? Doon nalang kayo magalit sa mga alagad ng Diyos na sumasali dyan sa politiko dahil yan ay mga tao lamang makasalanan din. katoliko din aq malaki ang pani2wala ko kay Diyos at gusto ko rin si d30 as a pres. pero huwag tayo pa apekto sa mga nangya2ri ngayon ating paligid, bagkus, ipagdasal nalang natin lahat na magkaroon na ng kapayapaan sa ating mga puso’t isipan ang lahat.

  • Haha let the stupid bishops do the bidding of drug Lords and oligarchs and let us count how many stupid Catholic Filipinos will follow them. I am born a Catholic but now I know how we are being made for blind obedience. Sobra na Tama na ang panlilinlang sa atin. God is being used to fool us.

  • cbcp isa dapat kayong magturo sa mga tao kung paano iwasan ang droga ang masamang epekto nito sa katawan ng tao at tulungan kung paano i uplift ang isang taong lulong sa droga di kayo dapat nkikialam sa gobyerno na ang pakay para mawala ang mga sugapa sa droga mga drug pushers at drug lords lalo na ang mga drug protector

  • And the Pharisees and the Saducees of our time has finally revealed themselves. Walang pinagkaiba sa mga mapangabuso at mapangapi na mga prayle sa panahon ng Espanol. Mga spoiled brats kasi mga Ito, sa tutoo Lang. Sa lay mahilig humingi ng pera, Pero ang tingin sa lay persons mga utusan Nila. Hindi porke alagad ng Diyos e, Diyos talaga pinagsisilbihan. Hindi po kasalanan sa Diyos na batikusin ang mga pari o madre na iba na ang sinusunod. Hindi na ang Salita ng Diyos Pero ang Kumpay ng Pera o yung Kumpay ng Kapangyarihan. Ang masama pa nito, Gina gamit Nila ang Diyos para ikubli ang mga kademonyohan nila. Kita kayo ng Diyos at Hindi ninyo Siya Kayang lokohin kahit sarili ninyo, niloloko niyo.

  • king ina nyo! ayaw nyo talagang manahimik kc may nagpapagalaw sa inyo same tactics noon ginamit c cardinal sin. pero di na tanga mga mamamayan ngayon mga padre damaso!

  • Hindi nag-iisip ng mabuti mga paring ito. Hindi lahat ng pilipino ay katoliko at karamihan sa kanila ay asar na rin sa ginagawa nyo kaya hindi na yan kakampi nyo. Ano sa tingin nyo, magtatagumpay kayo?

  • … there’s a struggle within me whenever the church fight it out with President Mayor’s kind of war against drugs and vice versa… struggle with my faith against vicious drug users.
    … i strongly espouse separation of church from how the state is being ran… that is the only way i see to let the church remain solid with its faith.
    … our President Mayor knows the shortcomings of the church… we heard its explanation why they have Billions of money in the banks but people are not buying because it couldnt explain why they cant help the poor… church goers know about big donations given to churches and most of them are just being kept… how can it win against our President when what he’s saying are also true.
    … i believe the only solution here is for them to talk… its a start to keep the nation united.

  • How long the RC did these, now the filipinos already saw and heard . We believe in faith but changes is our priority . Did the priests doing their parts on drugs i saw no , priests defended the victims of crimes did by drug addicts i saw no. I am a catholic by faith but no to their ideas against government. Hindi lahat ng katoliko sang ayon sa inyo aware na kami sa nangyayari.

  • Panginoon ko, anong nangya2ri na itong bansa nmin. Sana po ang inyong mga alagad itama niyo po sila sa kanilang bokasyon bilang inyong mga alagad.At puspusan nlang sana sila magdarasal sa loob ng iyong tahanan(church) dahil doon sa dapat mag preach ng iyong ebanghelyo. At kung ang pangulong si D30, kung may mga mali din siya sa kanyang administration, liwanagan din niyo po ang kanyang puso’t isipan, na maging tama ang bawat desisyon niya sa kanyang pamu2no ng aming bansa. Gano’n din po sa mga anti-d30 na mga kaba2yan ko. Patawarin niyo po kaming lahat sa aming mga kasalanan. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

  • To Bishops dosomething concrete and worthy , not just talk. Catholics are not like members of others sects who just follow their leaders blindly. Jesus said ” Be vigilant and wise to know what is the truth. And the truth is that the Filipino people and the future generations to come are no longer safe coz of the proliferation of drugs which the previous administration did not give importance or just don’t have the balls to face it. You just can’t tell us to this ,do that. Go out from your airconfitioned ooms to find out the truth and make the first move to help not to criticize.

  • kauo naman, kaya nga pari,

    • Yung mga pare nyo…may mga tiwaling buhay.may mga anak.yung doktrina ng katoliko hndi sa Diyos…yan ba paniniwalaan mo at somepoint pa tama yan sila? Gehehe nakakatawa kanaman kaibigan

  • survival instinct of the cbcp. they knew that without the support of the government their personal comforts will not bloom. why don’t we tax the catholic church?

  • Eh paano magiging talamak Ang oatayan gawa gawa lang ng Campo ni duterte yan para masabi na talamak. Sus saloob ng PNP MISMO nagagawa Ang pagoatay tapos di Alam ng chief. Ang tanga naman nya para di malaman. Eh Kung Yung sinasabi nilang military operation against abusayaf nalalaman nila Yun pa Hindi.

  • Bat kaya hndi nyo nlng pagtuunan ng pansin ang pagpapasigla ng spiritwal na bahagi ng tao.. wala naman kayo naitutulong sa gobyerno eh… kayo pa nga ang may mga baho na itinatago sa mga sarili nyo… tandaan nyo.. kauri nyo si da maso…

  • Ito nanaman ang mga banal banalan. Wala naman itong naitolong sa bansa .bastosan na kung bastosan mga pader . Si dios ama na ang bahala satin kung sino ang mabuti at ang masama

  • The priests are no politicians so usually they keep quiet, however, there are situations where they feel compelled to raise their voice and this is good so, particularly in this matter.

  • why not instead of going against the government, use all this time, money and effort to CONVINCE PEOPLE FROM TAKING/SELLING DRUGS. these killings are the direct result of that. illegal drugs are sold only because there is a market for it. if people stop buying, pushers stop selling.

  • its good to raise their collective voices. after all they are the pastors of the flock which by definition to guide the lost and to give hope to the hopeless.my wish for this bishops to reflect first on their ranks if they are -clean before dishing out to us -the flock, to give them credit on their battlecry..As the Lord said Do not judge…

  • The people involved in drugs, were warned to give them up before he became President. It’s not his fault they are to stupid to do that, so they will suffer the fate that was presented to them. A man of his word!!!!! Drugs are a problem throughout the world, they ruin lives and people die because of them, how can any religion support this.

  • subukan nyo makipagdebate kay tatay digong mapapahiya lang kayo..panahon plang ng kastila nagpapahirap na kau sa mga pilipino..mula pagbinyag hanggang paglibing may bayad..PADRE DAMASO

  • Payo ko sa inyo father huwag ninyong umpisahan baka magkakahiyaan lang lalo lang mabawasan ang katoliko masisira lang lalo ang image nyo lalo lang mawalan ng tiwala sa inyo ang mga katoliko mas mabuti pa father lumabas kayo sa pagka pare at pumasok kayo sa politika

  • Bucay kyo ang tanga bakit nssa tabi ba ni bato pag patay sa koryano ulol utak bolinaw ka alam mo ba kong gaano kalaki ang camp crame,gago ka mismo kapitbahay mo d mo alam daming adik at tulak ungoy ka

  • The evil plan against the PDU30 will never prosper. What the Bible says, Everyone must obey state authorities, because no authorities exists without God’s permission and the existing authorities have been put there by God. Whoever opposes the existing authority opposes what God has ordered; and anyone who does so will bring judgment on himself. (Romans 13:1-3 Good news Bible).

  • That’s why I stopped going to the catholic church… So many hypocrites. Don’t get me wrong, my faith in Him remains intact. It’s because of these hypocrites and blasphemous made me realize they are the modern Caiaphas.

  • To cbcp protect the flock at all cost and to duterte keep up the good work ay with ‘S’ pala works. In short your both right just perform your soul obligation and need to reconcile may the humble one wins. Sana wag lahatin ang kaparian paraan ng demonyo eto upang mag watak2x tayo paalala ko lng hindi pari ang pinunta natin sa simbahan kundi ang diyos. At sa mga kaparian cguro mas pgandahin p ntin ang sermon at mga outreach program natin para ma absorb ng mga katoliko ang pagpahalaga sa buhay at ang pagsasabuhay bilang katoliko dba yan nman dapat hindi ang pag pakialam sa mundo ng magulong pulitika.

  • Kayong mga hoodlums in white grobes are becoming menace again. Your intent is clear. You want to distabilize this government again who carries the mandate of the people which you intently undermind similar to what you did on Pred. MARCOS and ERAP ESTRADA. WHY NOT REACT ON THR EXPOSED 3,500 metric tons of gold secretly transfered to Thailand? The UNCONSTITUTIONAL DAP? The MAMASAPANO MASSAKER, The Mendiola and HSCIENDA LUISITA MASACKER? The Multi billion Pesos DOTC SEC. ABAYA Anomalies and your heartless stand on MARCOS BURIAL? NASAAN ANG CONSCIENSIYA NINYO?

  • LAWMAKERS SHOULD PASS A LAW THAT WILL TAX THE CHURCH.IT HAS BILLIONS OF PESOS IN ASSETS SO WITH THE INC.THEY DEMAND SO MUCH FROM THE GOVERNMENT YET THEY DONT PAY TAXES! EVEN JESUS PAID HIS TAXES – LETS FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE.

  • Baka babalik ang hatol sa mga pari gagaya ni Burgos, Gomez at Zamora. Mga pari kakampi sa mga dilaw wala kayong laban sa governo. Kong hindi ninyo alam ang separation sa church at state, sa history dami mga pari pinatay kasi nakialam sa goberno.

  • Mnga demonyo hndi na tayo mag punta sa malayo tingnan nyo lng mng squate sa harap ng CBCP kadami walang bahay may maski isang obespo na nag sabi bigyan pabahay paano ka nsging obispo hindi man ka makatao melyon2 ang nak.uilta mo

  • I heard over a tv news program a couple of days ago that the church is willing to have a dialogue with the president to thresh things out. It was a priest being interview that said this which came out after the president lambasted, yet again, the church for all its indiscretions. The catholic church should learn its lessons…that the century-old rule of separation of church and state be respected, that the catholic church should take active part in improving the economic station of life of the people and not in partisan political activities and that its material wealth are not for them to keep in banks or hide behind stochs and bonds but should be used to help the poor and the sick. I chose to stay a catholic but i have never felt so ashamed, in my entire life, of my church until now…our priests or our supposed to be spiritual guides and counsellors have obviously turned away from the gospels….no wonder, their prayers never got answered, never got heard…

  • teach the gospel as what is expected of you. this is not spanish colonial times where priests have a say on politics.

    if anything should be done. priests should show where they bring the money they recieve from collections. para magka alaman na

  • OMG! Religious groups like the Catholic Bishops and Nuns are not supposed to confront in a so called. Battle our present His Excellency President Duterte for his miss deeds or wrong doings for that matter. I believe as representative,in person of our church, faith or even God themselves, the are there to Counsel, to admonish, to enlighten, to guide, advise and give homily instead. To inspire for unity, love and peace to our country that could be a noble mission for them. To add flame or fire to the situation in the country is just like an act of Satan. Please, assist. Thank you. God bless.

  • If they want to play politics good BUT in order to do so they must pay taxes ob their income before they play they must pay all taxes back to Feb 1986 when they meddled in politics

  • Mahiya naman kayo kc sa mga asal nyo hndi pwdeng tawaging pari kundi mga pare. Sa mga pinapakita nyong asal malaking kasalanan sa Diyos. Nagmomisa pa naman kayo pero un sinsabi nyo d nyo naman ginagawa.

  • Clowns could run a better circus. Duterte has kicked the drug Lord’s out of town….now you can do the same and excommunicat them out of your idol ridden churches. For God’s sake…..you think your helping the war on drugs in the Philippines? Your church has been their safe haven for centuries.

  • Sa totoo lang hindi naman talaga ang inimbento nilang EJK ang problema ng mga pari at obispo, ang totoong dahilan kaya galit sila sa Duterte Administration ay dahil hindi na nila madiktahan at makotongan ngayon ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas. These so called religious leaders are fighting not for the people but for MONEY and POLITICAL POWER that they enjoyed during the previous administrations.

  • Gawin niyo ang inyong trabaho bilang bishop at huwag ng makialam sa war on drug ng pangulo. Anong gusto niyo hayaan na lang na magpatuloy ang pamamayagpag ang mga protector, druglords, pusher mga addict para pumatay bg mga inicente? Hindi yata tama na ang mga inocente ang biktima ng mga drogang ito.

  • Cbcp. S. This. Ur. True color. We d. Committed. Catholics. We. Cannot. Accept. Ur. Way. Of. Having. A new. Rp ..u r. Clouding. Our. Citizens. Of. D. Doctrine. Cory. Virus. ….u r. Patrons of. Drug. Lords. N corruptions. Crimes. ..

  • Hindi ito ang itinuturo in Pope Francis sa mga kaparian noong bumisita siya dito, ang sinabi nya labanan ang kurapsyon Hindi kampihan ang mga corrupt, ang lumalabas kasi kumakampi ang mga kaparian sa mga corrupt at mga druglord!

  • Filipino’s really doesn’t care much about EJK , knowing heinous crimes root causes are illegal drugs uses . It’s proliferation in every sitio’s and barangays all over the country has create a crime spree . The crimes that have been happening in the country before the war on drugs declared by PRRD were horrific and chooses no one and most victims are innocent and law abiding citizens, it happen almost every day during the past administration , people has start losing faith in the judicial system and the entire PNP capability to solve the crimes. The Catholic church who opposes the war on drug of PRRD did nothing and seem not to care, they never raised there concerns to Aquino regarding the crime menace, Filipinos saw these lack of concerns from them about the crimes being perpetuated by the drug dependent individuals even though victims families seek help from them . Now, that the CBCP or the church hierarchy asked the people to support them to oppose PRRD’s using EJK as issue to oust him, the Filipinos just pray not for the Church leaders but for PRRD success against illegal drugs and his continuous good health. The Catholic Hierarchy here in the Philippines do not deserves the support from the people that they’re asking because people see a double standard hypocritical norms they’ve been showing.

  • cge mag rally ng magrally bsta walang gulo. kya vila nag rarally hindi sa mga extra judicial killing….kc nawawala na ng paunti unti ang nagsisimba sa katoliko. kc madami na ngaun religion. kyong mga pari shado ng nabulgar mga tinatago nio sa baul. na ang binibigay pla na donadyon ng mga parishioners nio..iniinvest nio sa mga multinational companies. kung maniniwala kyo o hindi karapatan ng bawat tao yan. kung me nakikita kyong ebidensya sa mga nahahayag sa mga pari asa sa inio pa rinyan. kung sarado kandado isip nio sa mga nangyayari sa kapaian..asa sa inio a rin yan. hindi bawal maniwala..at hindi rin bawal kung ayaw maniwala. karapatan natin yun saying satili.

  • Panu nalang pag huminto ang laban contra druga? Panu pag mas lalong lumala ang problema sa druga? Cno ang lalaban o mag papatuloy nito? Panu ang mga ma bibiktima ng druga? Panu pag tinigil eto ng pmahalaan.? Cno gagawa cno mag sasakripisyo para mawala ang druga?

  • Cge mag rally kau at isang araw matauhan kau wla ng magsimba dhil sa kagaguhan ninyo at wla ng maniwala sa inyo ginagamit pa ninyo ang simbahan noon kapanahunan no panot tikum bibig ninyo dhil binigyan kau ng pera PRA manahimik knit among kawalang hiyaan gagawin nila

  • that`s TRUE HINDI NAG BABAYAD NG BUHIS ANG CATHOLIC INSTITUTIONS LIKE SCHOOLS, CHURCHES, HOSPITALS, SA TOTOO LANG WALANG NAUTULONG SA GOBIERNO ANG SIMBAHANG ROMANO KATOLICO, sorry but it us the truth.

  • isa akong katoliko at naniniwala ako sa kung anu ang mas makakabuti sa nakakarami.. pero nasa side ako ni pres. duterte dahil xa lng ang lider na may malasakit sa mamayan at handang labanan ang kurapsyon ay mga illegal na gawain sa ating lipunan.. okie lng na maaubos ang mga masasamang loob wag lang madamay ang mga innosenti at mosmos.. kaya nga hiniwalay ang simbahan sa gobyerno ay para maiwasan ang pangingialam ng bawat isa.. hayaan nyo ang diyos ang magpasya.. at hindi naman si pres.duterte angpumatay at nagpapapatay ah. kaau talaga. sana lng di kaau nakikinabang sa ibang grupo lng kaya kaya ganyan..

  • Dapat ganyan ginawa nla nung panahon ni aquino sa talamak na corruption, incompetence, drug proliferation, rampant crimes and killings even in broad daylight pero nagbulagbulagan at nagbingibingihan sila sa mga hinaing ng taumbayan ! Ano bang meron kay aquino at sa LP at di nla masita ?

  • The best way for our priests is to examine themselves first it they are good shepherds or good workers on God’s vineyard. I’m a devoted catholic and lucky enough that we have good parish priest but because of reshuffling issue whom we petitioned our bishop not to transfer our good parish priest because he is hardworking,dedicated,teaching us adult catechesis which many priests failed to do so and many priests failed to know what we learned from our good priest. But our petitioned failed that we felt dismayed and we followed our priest to another parish and continue attending mass and catechesis. The moral fiber of our country shattered or destroyed because we never fear God anymore,we never include Him in our plans,activities and family life. We are free to do what we want to do,it’s our human right,right ? That’s why immorality ,drugs,corruption,adultery etc. are like ordinary way of life. As christians,are we truly christians in thoughts,words and deeds ? As catholic,who will be our guide,the authority to teach us about the way of a Christian or God centered life ? Nuns don’t bring and teach the kids on the streets about what is happening to our country and attach morality and spirituality. You are exposing them to power struggle,politics,human greed and hatred because of power and money. They are children and when they watch tv there’s always a warning “Parental
    Guidance. ” Why you led them to the streets,it’s an adult issue. Why you sent letters to the parents asking permission to take the children on the streets and who is the parent brave enough to say no without having disgusts on both sides ? The teaching of the church is love,peace,forgiveness and unity,but who divide the people especially Catholics ? By the way to the bishop who was the spiritual adviser to the ” darling of the press” she herself wrote it in her column that they texted each other till we in the morning, did he truly molded her to be morally upright ? For me he failed to a single soul. Our president today inherited all the problems done by previous administration because of negligence,failed to exterminate the drug menace in our society for whatever reasons. Don’t just demand and expect our president to solve it in an instant that took years for the drug lords to build their empire on drug trades.Don’t just demand or accuse,do something and be part of solution. Start it in your own home,church and the rests follow,

  • Nagkakatawang Demonyo na sila at malamang mga Shabuhista narin mga yan,wala na sa BIBLIA mga gawa nila para silang mga mal Edukado hindi marunong umintindi ng mga nasusulat sa BIBLIA tama ang mababasa nyo pinagpalit nila sa SALAPI mga salita ng DIOS

  • …gawin nyo lang kabanalan ang mga gusto nyong gawin laban sa pangulo…
    hindi kami papayag na gaguhin nyo uli ang bansang pilipinas…sa anong dahilan nyo gustong paalisin ang pangulo sa pwesto dahil sa ejk moralidad at kung ano ano pang dahilan…humarap na ba kayo sa salamin ano po ang nakita nyo…
    nakita nyo ba ang sarili nyo na naghihikahos na sira sira ang suot na damit o di kaya ay hindi kumakain sa oras…siguro ay kaya kayo nagkakaganyan ay dahi maliit na ang abuloy at lumalabas na kung gaano kayo kayaman dahil sa abuloy na nakukuha nyo sa mamayan…sino ba ang nagkanulo kay kristo si hudas ba o kayong mga kaparian na nagbayad kay hudas upang ipagkanulo si kristo…
    hindi kayo dyos para sundin dahil kahit sa hanay nyo punong puno kayo ng kabuktutan…

  • Ngayon ko lang masasabi yong tungkol sa family planning ayaw ng nakakataas sa katoliko. Iba na ngayon,parami nang parami tayo pero wala silang tulong na mapakain at makapagaral ang mga anak anak nila dahil sa kahirapan.

  • Why not bottles ang prepare nyo mga paders, umiinum naman kayo ng mompo a pari drink pag battles against du30 you must be equipt with mouthchine guns….otherwise tuwad kayo, why not concentrate on religious preaching, maganda pakinggan, maging banal kayo at maging ka nais nais sa tingin ng mga tagasunod. obligasyon nyo pangalaga ng simbahan ng panginoon. Wag sirain ang relasyon nyo sa mga tagasunod at wag sunod sunuran sa mga prev admin. Mukhang sumasanib na talaga kayo sa politika.

  • Go go go. Start the war..Maglilitawan ang mga scandals sa hanay nyo..Di lang si Pangulong Duterte ang makakalaban nyo..hehehehe kukuyugin kayo ng taongbayan maging mga miyembro ng simbahan.

  • Talaga naman halata cla na kakampi cla sa mga yellowtards.kac marangya ang buhay nla sa aquino admi. Wala clang pakialam kong ang kababayan natin malolong sa droga .kaya nakadismaya tuloy ang katoliko ngaun pwra sa hindi nakikisali nga pari .

  • The catholic church should mind it’s own business and keep out of politics. Duterte was voted in by the people, now let him do his job. If it means druggies are to be hurt, then so be it.

  • Ginagamit nyo lng ang imahe ni jesus , para masira c pres duterte tapos ang ginagawa ni pres duterte pra namn iakakabuti sa mamayang pilipino lalo na ang ating bansang pilipino,,,, dapat atupagin nyo ang sa spiritual hndi sa politics den sundin nyo kung anu ang nka saad sa bible,

  • Why not spend their BILLIONSSSSS to build and establish centers all over the Philippines to reform drug addicts and the likes to Christian way of GOD FEARING life. Also so build high rise community buildings to house the squatters and the poor. Build factories to generate jobs.

  • Go try and oust a real president… Maniwala kayo baka 2017 na magkaroon ng huling pari sa PILIPINAS… We will protect the president of the republic at all cost… Even at expense of your life. By this we will preserve the future generations from existing hypocrisy of this society

  • I hope it involves getting in front of the issue rather than barking sermons behind the pulpit. Only way to stop EJK is to be there side by side with the PNP. Be their conscience, since this really is what you should be doing for the people. A moral compass not a political tour guide.

  • mga rape victim ng mga Pare ito na ang tamang Panahon para makabawi sa nambiktima sa inyo . . .

  • Come on father. Fire a first shot and you will see thousands will fire you back in retaliatations. Let the war between the good and evil begins. People are already fed up of your hipocracy, greedy of power and money, child abuses and sex scandals that catholic heirarchy kept in secret very long time ago.

  • BULLSHIT !!!! BISHOPS ARE SUPPOSED TO TEACH AND OBEY THE TEACHINGS OF THE WORD OF GOD NOT TO MEDDLED WITH THE LAW , JESUS CHRIST HIMESLF TEACHES US TO OBEY THE LAW WHEN HE SAYS GIVE TO CAESAR WHAT IS CAESAR AND TO GOD WHAT IS DUE TO GOD AND APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US TO OBEY THE AUTHORITY BECAUSE THEY ARE PUT THERE TO PROTECT THE LAW ABIDING ONE AND THEY GIVEN THE AUTHORITY TO PUNISH CRIMINALS ( ROMANS 13: 1-5 ) , NOW WHO ARE THESE BISHOP TRYING TO MEDDLED IN EXECUTING THE LAW OF GOD AND OF THE STATE , ARE THEY TRYING TO SAY THAT THEY ARE BETTER THAN GOD???? BEWARE MY COUNTRY MEN DO NOT BE DECEIVE BY THESE FAKE MINISTERS THEY ARE NOT OF GOD BUT THEY ARE THE WOLVES IN DISGUISED AS SHEEP MENTIONED BY JESUS THESE BISHOPS ARE OF THE DEVIL

  • It’s been settled in court that there is no evidence that any State-sanctioned killing is happening. But there is evidence that there is little definitive action being done against members of the clergy who have molested/raped laypeople.

  • Ano naman ang nagawa ninyo simula sapol even before the du30 admin? laban sa illegal drugs? Bakit pinabayaan ninyong lumaganap itong problema na ito? At ngayon against kayo sa kanyang kampanya? Dapat magbigay kayo ng alternative solustion on how to solve illegal drugs. Marami kayong pera kita ng simbahan bakit hindi ninyo gamitin laban sa illegal drugs o magtayo kayo ng rehab ksi maraming katoliko ang addict sa drugs. instead na oppose kayo sa goberno mas mabuti tulungan nalang ninyo ang goberno sa problemang ito.

  • Go ahead mga paring demonyo!!!basta demonyo, walang susunod!!!suluhin nyo!!!mga aktibista..pay nag deklara c president ng Martial law, kyo unahin dakpin at ikulong!!!

  • Kung ang inatupag sana ng mga pari ay tinuroan ang mga nasasakupan nila na maging mabuting mamamayan at tigilan ang pakikialam sa mga pamamalakad at programa ng goberno hindi sana naging ganito kalala ang problema sa druga ng ating bansa. Tama lang si presidente na wala silang moral ascendancy na pakialaman ang kampanya ng goberno laban sa illegal na druga.

  • The Philippines Public Enemy Number One is The Catholic Church. —Haller, News Flash, Surprise! Really! What? Cory, Noynoy, Napoles, Roxas….. Bakit sa mayayaman sila dumidikit hindi sa mahirap? Bakit ang hilig nilang pakialaman gobyerno pero wala naman silang pakialam sa mga mahihirap na don mismo natutulog sa carpark ng gusali ng kanilang simbahan? Bakit pag may bibitaying kriminal pinupuntahan ng Obispo pero pag may pinatay na inosente may sakristan walang pinadadala CBCP. Ang CBCP ba nagbigay ng kahit kapiranggot na statement na tumalakay patungkol sa Hacienda Luisita at sa massacre na naganap doon? Bakit pag may namamatay na inosente hindi sila napapapress conference pero pag may bibitayin na kriminal umaga, tanghali at gabi may press conference sila. Nagvivigil pa mga putang-ina sa huling gabi pag may bibitayin kinabukasan. May nakipaglamay ba miski isang gabi lang mula CBCP sa pamilya ng mga napatay ng addict? Kayong mga pari sa simbahang katoliko anong kasalanan ang ginawa namin sa inyo bakit ganyan kayo kalupit sa amin. Nagsisilbing tiga-pagtanggol ng kriminal, magnanakaw sa gobyerno, haciendero, elitista, drug lord at iba pang kriminal. Simula palang ng dumating kayo sa aming bansa intensyon nyo nang linlangin kami. Hangga ngayon ba naman nililinlang nyo pa kami. Hindi dapat pinapayagan sa Malacanang ang mga Pari nayan. Kong pupunta sila sa Malacanang pumunta sila doon bilang mamamayang Pilipino hindi Pari, nakasoot ng pang civilian hindi nakasuot na pang pari. Hindi dapat pinapayagan at binibigyan ng atensyon ang CBCP bakit may katoliko din sa America at Italya pero don ba pag may CBCP kailangan pansinin ng gobyerno. Kayong mga nasa CBCP subukan nyong gawin sa America at Italya ang ginagawa nyo sa Pilipinas na pakikialam sa gobyerno kungdi kuyugin kayo don. Hindi nyo gagawin sa Western Countries ang ginagawa nyo dito sa Pilipinas kasi doon hindi kayo papayagan at kukunsintihin. According to Washington Sycip of SVG and AIM dalawang bansa lang sa buong mundo, na ang simbahang katoliko aktibong nakikialam sa gobyerno at isa tayo don. Yong isa, island country pa na napakaliit na bansa. Bakit kailangan ng gobyerno makinig sa CBCP ano bang nagawa ng simbahang katoliko sa Pilipinas diba noong panahon ng Kastila ang mga pari nayan nirerape ang ating mga ninuno kaya nga may mistisang Pilipino kasi yan yong mga anak ng ating mga ninuno na hinalay ng mga pari. Ako muka lang Aeta kaysa naman mistiso nga pero naging mistiso naman kasi yong mga ninuno pinaghahalay ng pari sa loob ng maraming henerasyon. Sinulat yan ni Rizal sa Noli Me Tangere ang ina ni Maria Clara nirape ni Padre Damaso at si Maria Clara nirape ni Padre Salvi ganyan kadedemonyo mga pari nayan.

  • That is an example of stupidity. Sa halip na kontrahin ang gobyerno bakit Hindi sila gumawa ng paraan para mapalayo ang mga tao sa masamang gawain. Hindi ba sila nagtataka kung bakit dumarami ang taong masasamang loob? Ang administrasyon ngayon ay gumagawa na ng paraan para maiahon ang mga tao sa kahirapan. Ang gobyerno at nagpapalitpalit ng pinuno samantalang ang simbahan ay silasila lang din naman. Subalit bakit ganun marami paring walang nananampalataya sa Dyos? Dahil kulang pa ang kanilang ginagawang pagpapakalat ng magandang balita ng ating Panginoon dahil naka pokus lang ang simbahan sa mga donasyon na kanilang nakukuha at sa luho na kanilang tinatamasa.
