Indeed, the call for all Filipino politicians to put a stop to using piety circus for their political ends goes to all regardless of camp. And that includes both Bongbong Marcos and President Rodrigo Duterte himself.
Prayer is nice. But prayer in private is even better.
The trouble with being outwardly religious is that it gives people the power to judge you. Worse, it gives power to Big Organised Religion to meddle in the politics of a supposedly secular society.
It’s time Filipinos put an end to their politicians’ lame prayer circuses and their clerics’ attempts to make themselves politically-relevant. The key to an intelligent and independent mind is right at our fingertips. It just takes a bit of effort to ditch old and primitive habits.
