Leni asks Rody: Work with Catholic Church

MANILA, Philippines – Instead of lambasting priests and bishops, President Duterte should work with the Catholic Church to achieve the collective goals of Filipinos, according to Vice President Leni Robredo.

She said Duterte’s latest tirades against the Catholic clergy are unnecessary,

“My hope is we should learn to respect our differences in faith and look for ways where we can help one another,” the Vice President said in an interview in Camarines Sur over the weekend.

Last week, Duterte said he could not understand why the Church keeps on hitting his anti-drug war.

The Roman Catholic Church has been vocal in expressing concerns over the spate of killings linked to Duterte’s all-out war on drugs.

More than 6,000 suspected drug offenders have been killed since Duterte assumed the presidency.

Some churches even displayed tarpaulins that read: “Thou shall not kill,” an obvious reference to the alleged extrajudicial killings happening under the administration.

Duterte has repeatedly denied that the government is endorsing summary executions.

Ms Leni, you are out on the national agenda. Find ways to make you relevant by not using he Church who had lost their influence and moral authority in the country. Their hypocracy is one of the reason that resulted to several groups,e.g. born again that in turn became a lucrative business for most.

Ang talino kasi ng mga matalinong pilipino lahat nalang na topiko may puna. Kung tungkol naman sa ataki ng presidente sa kanila, ang mga pare ang may kasalanan, sila ang nanguna ng walang kakwentang ataki sa presidente, ngayong binalikan sila sobrang galit naman nila. Kung hindi na lang sila nag patama sa presidente di sanay lumaki itong issue na ang akala nila komo halus katoliko ang mga mamayang pilipino ay susuporta sa kanila. Ako ay katoliko debota**** katoliko na sisimba tuwing lingo pero ngayon mga do***ento ko na lang sa relehiyon ang katoliko ayaw ko na mag simba lilipat nalang ako ng aking simbahan basta patungkol parin kay Hesus ang aking Panginoon, goodby katoliko magulo pare ninyo.

Hoy Madam Leni, hindi mo ba alam ang separation of State and Church? Nasa Saligang Batas yan, bakit kailangan sila makisali sa Government affairs? Hindi nga iyan nagbabayad ng tax.

There is this thing called separation of church and estate, Miss VP. The government cannot be mandated by an organized religion. If the Catholic church or any other religion wants to be involved in the government then they should be taxed first.
