An open letter lambasting the CBCP and the Catholic Bishops for continued meddling with the government affairs has been doing the rounds online.
The open letter is in response to the recent statement made by Archbishop Tirona asking President-elect Duterte to give VP-elect Robredo a chance to showcase her talents & capabilities.
In a Facebook post, a netizen identified by her Facebook handle Gie Martin wrote a sharp criticism directed against the Catholic leaders, especially the bishops whom she accused of turning a blind eye to the widespread allegations of cheating in the May 2016 election.
Ms. Martin lambasted the Catholic church for being hypocritical. She added just because the recipient of the alleged cheating is a candidate with the family name called Marcos, whom the Aquinos have continued to demonize for the past deeds of the elder Marcos, the Catholic leaders “consented” to the anomalous election results, particularly in the VP race.
The netizen reminded the Bishops that the Aquinos are equally guilty of sins if not worse against the Filipino people! She cited the trillions of pesos siphoned off by Noynoy Aquino from the national coffers with nothing to show for like mega projects as proof that the money was well spent and benefited ordinary citizens.
It can be recalled that President-elect Duterte already released a statement with regards to the talks about a Cabinet position for the VP-elect and said that in deference to his best friend Bongbong Marcos, no Cabinet position awaits Robredo under his administration.
Check out the OPEN LETTER addressed to the Bishops below:
I try my best not to attack the Catholic Church and its organizations out of respect to their faith & God but there are times that I feel there is a need to put my foot down and say, enough is enough!
Bakit ba lagi nalang nakikialam ang Simbahan Katoliko?? Bakit kailangan i-pagsaksakan sa lalamunan ni Pres Duterte si Robredo, ang isang cheater? Yup, cheater; mandaraya. Cos that’s what she is. Why would the Church insist on someone who cheated her way into the vice presidency and please don’t say later on that you people esp her, were not aware that there was cheating going on! All the evidences were there, complete with witnesses.
I find the Church so hypocritical. Just because the REAL winner of the VP position happens to be a Marcos, they will consent to widespread cheating. BBM who has worked so hard to make laws that will benefit us and the country; whose advocacy was to unite us all. Just because the Aquinos and their party continue to accuse his father, of being a dictator; human rights violator; someone who has stolen from the nation’s coffer. But hey, didn’t the Aquinos do the same thing and far worse at that with the Trillions that Noynoy siphoned from the kaban ng bayan?? CBCP, why not check with the CHR and find out the gross violations of human rights under BOTH Aquinos surpassed that of the Marcos Administration as well as everything else. Yet you refused to acknowledge that and will still continue to carry on the farce by nominating Cory Aquino to be canonized.
The Church should involve itself in bringing it’s brethren closer to God; in getting to know Him more; in making the Bible come alive in their lives. It has no business meddling in State affairs.
