Robredo was referring to the last remarks of Duterte against the Catholic priest saying they do not have a moral ascendancy over him given their own scandals.
“We are in extraordinary times and it doesn’t help if we fight each other. Yes, we have varying opinions, but in the scheme of things, we should look for issues where we can work together,” Robredo said in tagalog during her visit to Calabanga, Camarines Sur to check on a sea wall project.
“Going at it with priests doesn’t help because it creates animosity between the government and the Catholic Church. We should respect each other’s beliefs and get all hands on deck, call on all people to help either from the public or private sector, regardless of affiliation,” Robredo said.
