THE VATICAN (The Adobo Chronicles, Rome Bureau) – The separation of church and state is a principle adhered to universally, but the Roman Catholic Church has its limits when it comes to politics and Mary the mother of Jesus Christ.
Pope Francis today approved the excommunication of a group of supporters of Philippine Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo.
The Pinklawans as they are popularly called, were photographed holding a poster bearing the image of Robredo as Mother Mary. Not only that, the poster made a mockery of one of the most sacred prayers of the Catholic Church, the ” Hail Mary.”
In his excommunication order, the Pope accused the group of sacrilege and idolatry and said that the action of The Vatican was irreversible.
The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach Robredo but her spokesperson said she was taking a nap after working continuously for 18 hours.
