The Church of Christ must be a church of justice. Thus, not only Catholics are shocked with the alleged links of Roman Catholic priests to groups charged with the P10-billion pork barrel scam.
Bishop Tagle, I have cried with you over the heartlessness of powerful private individuals and government officials. Now, I call on you and other Bishops of the Catholic Church in the Philippines to walk your talk:
1) Move for a swift investigation of clerical involvement in the pork barrel scam and other anomalies;
2) Pledge to cooperate fully with official investigations into the pork barrel scam and other malversation cases;
3) Call on the government to probe EVERYONE involved in these anomalies, whether in the legislative and executive bodies, whether from the opposition or administration camps.
We cannot let corruption continue in any sector of society. Help the nation. Save the Church.
