Duterte incites Filipinos to 'rob, kill' Catholic Bishops for alleged Abuses of Power

MANILA--President Rodrigo Duterte incited Filipinos to rob and kill Catholic leaders after alleged incident of abuses, criticizing Catholic church as most hypocritical institution of the Philippines.

"Holdupin ninyo ‘yung obispo ninyo, maraming pera ‘yan. Nanghihingi sa mga mayayaman, akala malilibre sila sa langit.  Pagka lumaban, patayin mo. Maglibing tayo ng obispo. Maniwala ka diyan mga ‘yan. Puro may asawa," he said during the proclamation rally of PDP-Laban.

Duterte then, shared alleged sexual harassment done to him by a priest in Catholic school when he was a minor.

"Jinu-jumble yung b*y*g ko parang bola." He confessed.

"‘Di ba Friday mass ‘yan, may misa talaga tapos communion, confession. Doon kami hinihipo.... Lahat kami sa totoo lang. Hindi ako magsabi ng ganun kung hindi totoo sa karami namin," he added.

Further claims of abuse of power were also acknowledged by Pope Francis, saying sexual abuse of nuns by priests and bishops is a "problem" in the Catholic Church.

"There have been priests and also bishops who have done that," the Pope said referring to sexually abusing nuns.

"And I believe that it may still be being done. It's not a thing that from the moment in which you realize it, it's over. The thing goes forward like this. We've been working on this for a long time," he added.

Duterte, further said that church leaders should not used the pulpit to rift with him.

"Attack me but attack me outside the realm of religion. If you are a priest, do not use religion as a platform to criticize me."

Former situation in line with this when a priest joked that he prayed for President Rodrigo Duterte to get sick during Mass on peaceful resolution brought by the arrest order against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

"P***** i**** pari magsabi, 'Mamatay sana si Duterte.' What kind of a s*** is that?" Duterte said.

Duterte, on the other hand, reiterated his intention to reform the church, saying no less than Pope Francis acknowledged the problem of priests sexually abusing nuns.

"I will not joke or crack a joke about that. Sinasabi ko na sa inyo (I am telling you). The Church has to reform," he said.

Since the President assumed presidency, he has been constantly vicious to the Church and its teachings in his speeches.

Under Duterte's regime, several priests were victims of extrajudicial killing named Fathers Marcelito Paez, Richmond Nilo, and Mark Anthony Ventura.
