Vow of Catholic Priest Chastity, Obedience and poverty, Butuan Bishop Juan de Dios Pueblos, DD loss moral ground, the best thing he can do is ask for forgiveness and surrender the vehicle to government no more no less, the more he talk to defend himself, he drag the Catholic believers in this sinful act, it`s clear to him that Arroyo administration is full of controversy to resolve which is now resurfaces,`` End will justify the means`` can`t apply to this.
No doubt catholic church has failed to uplift the people's moral values for years. It's high-ranking officials have lived in a morally-decadent institution, catholic church has become too involved in politics.
I can't imagine wishing a Montero for a birthday. This is insane Bishops and all the cler--- officials should and must demonstrate a humane and modest kind of living. Lets take it, the Bishop has a Montero now, where he will get the money for gasoline expenses....sa abuloy?
This is the reason why the church should be separated from the state. It is better if the latter will follow the former but it is worst if goes the other way, like what happened here. Ever since the catholic church became active in politics to topple the Marcos regime, it became hard for them to separate from the estate. I believe that it is time for the church to separate itself from the dirty politics. All you need to do is teach us to become good citizens of our country and of course of God. We know that other than being a bishop or priest, you are also human. If you get close to evil (politics) you get closer to temptation.
