Our God Is Not Stupid
He said it again. And this time with emphasis. “YOUR GOD IS STUPID!”
The God of our fathers, and of the whole Christendom is being proclaimed in this Christian nation, on National Television, by our President, as stupid. He taunts our teachings, he insults our scriptures and his cohorts would even have the gall to defend all these by saying that the Catholic Church should repent from our own sins and scandals.
The Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas (Council of the Laity of the Philippines), together with its Religious Leaders and Pastors, denounce in the strongest possible terms these unstatesmanly, untrue and uncouth manners, speeches and attacks to our faith, and the insults being hurled to OUR GOD.
As Christians and citizens in OUR COUNTRY, we have the right and duty to point out these very offensive actuations. He should repent and relent. The President should be man enough to accept that these are wrongdoings and should be mature enough to stop his tantrums.
With this statement, the LAIKO calls on all our lay faithful to express their indignation in a truly Christian and civil manner, through all possible means and channels.
For the LAIKO Board of Directors,
JULIETA F. WASAN
