Instead of getting favorable attentions among the Filipino Catholic populations, most of them disapproved the things the church have during masses. A prominent social media personality and a known Duterte supporter, Krizette Laureta Chu even shared some proof that CBCP already lost its power to call people to action.
According to Krizette Laureta Chu, during the election period the Catholic Church already campaigned against Pres. Duterte but the former Mayor still won and now that he is already the President, the CBCP continues it’s condemnation by giving Pastoral Letter allegedly intended to attack Pres. Duterte.
Krizette Chu also noted that the disappointment of Catholic Church members who heard the homily about the alleged EJK is a proof that the Church does not hold major sway among the most of us anymore. She suggested that we should relax and should not condemn the Church’s condemnation because they no longer has the power to call people to action the way Jaime Cardinal Sin had.
Here’s the Complete Statement of Krizette Laureta Chu:
SA 12 NA APOSTOL, MAY ISANG HUDAS. SA BUONG SIMBAHAN PA.
The Catholic Church condemned the killings, but we already know that they condemn killings.
Duterte is the least Catholic–not Christian, Catholic–of all the
candidates last elections, and the Church’s many priests campaigned
against him, and he still won.
This is proof that the Church does not hold major sway among the most of
us anymore. So please relax and do not condemn the Church’s
condemnation. The CBCP no longer has the power to call people to action
the way Jaime Cardinal Sin had.
And on Feb. 25, when and if they call out for People Power, they will realize just how non existent their perceived power is.
If they didn’t get this reality with Duterte’s win, they will when they call for mobilization and very few people show up.
Tao lang sila, at kahit tama sila na mali pumatay, mali sila sa pag
aakala na state sponsored ang murders. No one has been able to prove it.
No one was able to prove it when Duterte was mayor; no one will able to
prove it now that he’s President.
And, as an aside: The
Catholic Church is not its priests. Jesus was not like today’s priests.
He was never a hypocrite. Pope Francis will never be a Teodoro Bacani.
The Church is not here nor there. The Kingdom of God is within you. The
Church will last as long as there are believers, and it will outlast
any government or leader. It will evolve, like any institution. It
already is evolving, under Pope Francis.
At a time when we lose our faith in the church we belong to, never lose faith in the God you believe in.
