Through a Facebook post, netizen Aveen Acuna-Gulo calls on the Catholic Church for their unrighteous position as the critic of the government due to the existence of their controversial internal affairs.

Due to the hierarchy that burdens the Catholic Church, important and controversial matters are kept in the dark from the bottom of the hierarchy, the devotees.

She opened her letter with,

 “Dear Catholic Church:

I am Catholic. As a member of a big chunk of Christianity in this country, I bear the brunt of the indiscretions of some of you in the hierarchy.”

She then continued by stating that religion wasn’t an issue with voting for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, it was his capabilities. Gulo was also aware of the Duterte’s sailor mouth yet the only reason on  why the President ever thought and committed to bashing the Church was due to the fight that the Church itself started when he was still a running for his position.

“I can stand the foul mouth of President Duterte. For one, he is not Catholic anymore. Haven’t you noticed this early on? I understand he is just throwing back the vileness with the same intensity of your criticisms against him. I voted for him to be President of the Philippines and not as an official of the Catholic Church,” She continued.

She the made it a point that before voicing out criticisms at the government with intention of righting what ever is wrong, the Church should look in the mirror and figure out it they are worthy of criticizing in the first place.

“Clean up your backyard before pretending to clean up the Philippine bureaucracy. Remember many of your fellow priests and nuns work in silence and they are a mirror of God’s work on Earth. Don’t let your hatred for Duterte jeopardize the work of your fellow clergy.

You are powerful. And you have become powerful without measure. Be grateful you were powerful since 1521.

Now, leave governance to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte,” she said and ended.
Attached to the netizen’s post was a quote directed to the Church,
