MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Bishop Emeritus Teodoro Bacani on Thursday challenged President Rodrigo Duterte to prove his accusations that he has 2 wives and offered a P10 million reward if Duterte can prove it.
On Tuesday, Duterte lashed out at the Catholic Church, and said that the clergy has no moral ascendancy to lecture him because they also commit sinful acts. He
singled out Bacani, who has been vocal in criticizing the administration’s bloody war on illegal drugs.
However, in an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, the bishop said that he was misquoted by the local mainstream media.
He said that what he offered was P10 BILLION, not P10 million.
He added, “Anong palagay nila sa simbahan, poor?”
(What do they think of the church, poor?)
