Philippine Catholic Bishops Issue Second Pastoral Letter On Fakes


MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Two weeks ago, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) issued a pastoral letter to all Filipino Catholics, urging them to reject and be weary of “fake news.”

CBCP listed the URLs of what it considered to be fake news.

Yesterday, churches throughout the country read a second pastoral letter signed by CBCB president Socrates Villegas, along with an addendum to its original list of fakes.

The following successfully made it to CBCP’s second list:

  • Leni Robredo, fake VP
  • Cynthia Patag, fake profile picture
  • Raissa Robles, fake investigative journalist
  • Australian citizen Jim Paredes, fake Pinoy
  • Rappler, fake Internet news source

Villegas urged the Catholic Faithful to refrain from following the social media accounts and pages of the fakers and to report to the CBCP other possible additions to its list.
