Philippines: Bishops vs. President
Catholic World News – 7/2/18
Leaders of the national police met with officials of the bishops’ conference as bishops criticized President Rodrigo Duterte for mocking God. The nation of 104 million is 83% Catholic.
After President Rodrigo Duterte again mocked God (see earlier coverage), the bishop who leads the Episcopal Commission on the Laity wrote that he and a lay body denounced “in the strongest possible terms these unstatesmanly, untrue and uncouth manners, speeches and attacks to our faith, and the insults being hurled to OUR GOD … The President should be man enough to accept these are wrongdoings and should be mature enough to stop tantrums.”
