Filipino bishop tells Catholics to ignore Duterte’s anti-Church tirades
A former head of the Philippines’ Catholic bishop’s conference, has called on people to ignore President Rodrigo Duterte’s repeated rants against the church.
In his New Year message, Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan said those who call God stupid and teach that it is useless to go to church are “anti-Christ”.
