Cardinal Tagle Says Filipino Catholics Should Follow Humble Leaders Like Duterte

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In what is being seen as the most positive endorsement yet of President Rodrigo Duterte by the Catholic Church in the Philippines, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has urged Filipino Catholics to follow “humble leaders” like Jesus Christ.

Immediately, the Filipino faithful interpreted Tagle’s statement to be in reference to Duterte who is known  to always bow in humility to his private or public audiences. Duterte is also known to have kept humble practices even as President, such as sleeping inside a mosquito net in his own bed in Davao City, or eating meals, sans utensils,  in carinderias. It is also a known fact that Duterte likes to serve simple Filipino cuisine such as monggo and maruya even in state dinners.
