The hero’s path leads to hell and back.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has said his country’s Catholic bishops are “useless fools” and should be “killed”, the latest attack by the controversial leader on the church, which has opposed his deadly war on drugs.
In a speech at the presidential palace on Wednesday, Duterte was quoted in local news reports as saying in a mix of Filipino and English: “These bishops that you guys have, kill them. They are useless fools. All they do is criticise.”
I too share Duterte’s frustration with the current state of organized Christianity. I think we all do.
In fact, I don’t think that his sentiments are anti-Christian in the slightest. The Church historically has from time to time entered periods of rampant corruption, stagnation and gotten the common folk mad at it. Usually, the Church would begin internal purges and reforms to set the ship straight, helped along by popular uprisings and indignant nobility. Hopefully, this time around will be no different.
Being mad at the Church and demanding that they straighten themselves out has a long historical precedent so people need to chill out and understand that a lot of this criticism comes from a place of love.
Three Catholic priests have been killed since December last year, raising alarm in the country and prompting the church and opposition leaders to condemn the continued “culture of impunity”.
“They are killing our flock. They are killing us, the shepherds. They are killing our faith. They are cursing our church,” Catholic leaders said in a strongly-worded statement earlier this year.
Archbishop Socrates Villegas also urged Duterte to “stop the verbal persecution” against the Catholic Church, “because such attacks can unwittingly embolden more crimes against priests”.
Duterte, who is a baptised Catholic, has said the church has no moral authority to criticise him, chastising the institution for the sexual abuse scandals involving priests worldwide.
He even cursed Pope Francis during the 2016 presidential campaign but later apologised.
No one should ever have to apologize for cursing this cursed Pope.
The Catholic Church has become one of the many driving forces of Globo-Homo and nationalists in any country are basically going to have to come to terms with that.
Sucks, but them’s the facts.
They trip over themselves to kiss the feet of the lowest scumbags and degenerates that the world has to offer and offer only moral condemnation of the righteous who rise up to put an end to the depravity. And I’m not attacking Catholicism here, just pointing out that the current Catholic Church is an enemy to all nationalists and patriots as things stand now because it is ruled by a homosexual mafia with an inverted moral compass.
The country’s Catholic Church has openly criticised the drug war and has extended help to some of the victims and survivors of the extrajudicial killings, earning the ire of the president.
Recently, Duterte threatened to have a bishop’s head cut off.
Although he did not specify the clergyman’s name, he alleged in the same speech that a certain “Bishop David” was engaged in corrupt practices.
Duterte provided no evidence to back his accusation.
Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of Caloocan, outside Manila, is one of the most outspoken critics of Duterte’s war on drugs. His district has seen one of the highest numbers of extrajudicial killings in the past two years.
Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?
Surprise, surprise – he looks like a faggot with a grudge.
Stay the course, Duterte.
People know who the righteous one here is and it’s not the guy with the pedo grin and the goofy hat.
