Priest tells RH bill supporters to leave Mass

A priest at the Baguio Cathedral drew flak from some Catholics after he ordered people supporting the reproductive health bill to leave the church and stop hearing Mass.

His remarks drew outrage from some parishioners, who walked out in consternation.

The priest, whose identity was withheld, used his sermon to mock supporters of the bill such as former Akbayan party-list Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel.

“Kung meron nakikimisa dito pero pro-RH bill… Please, go out. It’s useless,” the priest said.

“What is this mass for if you are pro-RH bill? What is going to Church for if you’re pro-RH bill?” he asked.

The priest’s statements were recorded on video by a parishioner.

    wow these priests are so out of touch. can they feed and educate the so many unwanted children in the philippines? they are living in a comfortable place and don’t even need to think about their next meal…

    One thing to watch out for is what the Bishop says.

    “Kick them out of the church” may be the official position that is being directed from the top, what do you folks think?

    “Kick them out” when “them” are just ‘regular’s” but be kissy-kissy-nice and be polite to politicians and big-contributors… what do you think?

    Long over due. Pati yung pumupuntang simbahan para magdaldalan lang disturbing other people at pray, paki sanohan sa bahay na lang magchismisan.

    Well that’s a good way to get people to stay in church.

  • The church is a formidable opponent. Let’s hope we’ll see this bill become law.
