In the midst of the corruption scandal rocking the house of the Bautistas, a photo of a Catholic priest kissing the feet of Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista circulates online.
The Facebook page ‘Lapu-Lapu’, a pro-Duterte page, posted the controversial photo of Comelec Chairman having his feet kissed by no less than Cardinal Tagle with an embedded text that reads: “Kami Bahala Sa Iyo”.
The OP also wrote a caption for added effect:
ULTIMATE PR. Pera pera lang yan.
I kiss your @ss, You kiss mine.
Sinong niloloko niyo? Media Circus? Oo Si Andy Bird ang clown. Napaka Obvious niyo na, Sobra.
#Desperate #NonPartisanDaw #SeparationOfChurchAndStateDaw
Whoever came up with the PR stunt and convinced the Comelec Chairman to do such thing should have that fellow fired from his or her job!
The photo, apparently struck a raw nerve on social media, drawing angry comments from netizens who saw the photo as a cheap stunt to send a message to the Filipino Catholics that church got Andres Bautista’s back.
Jorge Villavicencio Delos Reyes Jr. remarked: “And they ask why their parishioners are getting low and low in numbers every church time….. 😀 😀 😀 I’m a catholic but I only believe in God and not by my own fellow men when it comes to FAITH :D”

Francisco Jesus Lerma Jr. commented: “Same as De5 ginamit nag trying hard gamitin yung homily nang Mass, by being d one persecuted para makahinhi nang sympathy votes to no avail, kasi GUILTY!!!”
Longcob Jong remarked: “Nakakatawa naman nito, kung maimpluwensyang tao hahalikan ng makunwaring pari ung paa nila pero kung ung mga mahihirap at musmusing tao kailan man hindi magawang halikan ng mukhang perang pari na to..”
Evangeline Dela Cuesta said: “nakisawsaw si Cardinal Tagle. Angry Bird proudly announced that Cardinal Tagle called him, let’ s see if the good.Cardinal can Save Him.”
