Yesterday, Rappler ran a story about the meeting of VP Robredo and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Villegas to talk about drug rehabilitation programs.
According to Rappler, VP Robredo initiated the move to discuss with Archbishop Villegas on how they can revive the partnership between the government, the private sector, and the Catholic Church.
Villegas revealed to Rappler that the meeting took place on September 12.
The ‘innocent’ meeting between VP Robredo and a prominent Catholic leader has raised suspicions among netizens that there is something more than meets the eye.
It can be recalled that Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar earlier warned that the Liberal Party of VP Robredo is planning to oust Duterte.
Meanwhile, Dr. Antonio Contreras of De La Salle University has something to say to the CBCP.
The Church meeting with Maria Leonora Robredo about drugs to discuss an alternative strategy is an indication of the partisan biases of the CBCP.
Dr. Contreras adds that the Church should have exercised prudence to avoid sending the wrong signal to the general public.
Why can’t the Bishops meet with the DSWD and DOH Secretaries under whose purview the issue of drug rehabilitation falls?
Before ending his post, Dr. Contreras told VP Robredo to focus on her job as the HUDCC Secretary not acting like she is the Drug Rehabilitation czar!
This is not the concern of the office of the Vice President. Nor it is the concern of HUDCC.
Check out how the netizens respond to Dr. Contreras post.

i admit that the CBCP has had a history of being “Yellow.” This is the Cardinal Sin legacy, which is, more or less, being continued by his heir Soc Villegas. Pero ang plural na rin ng CBCP ngayon and we also have to note that PNoy pissed them off after RH. So I am interested to see how they play politics during the Du30 regime. Parang feel ko too early to tell. but you have a point na may indication na nga…
Benedict Exconde is more direct on his language and says:
It is obvious which entities and personalities want to force regime change to maintain their version of status quo in this country.
