MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Nuns at St. Scholastica’s are known for egging their students to walk out of their classes to protest against the Duterte administration and other issues of national concern.
They did it again to protest what they called a “Duterte Dictatorship.”
But this time, the nuns were caught off-guard when some students instead carried placards announcing that they were vaccinated with Dengvaxia, the controversial Dengue vaccine that has caused the deaths of almost 100 students to date.
Rumors have it that the school, particulary the Marikina campus, offered Dengvaxia to its students at an exhorbitant price.
When the Dengvaxia controversy surfaced, the school tried to do a cover up, even taking down the Internet page that announced its Dengue vaccination program for its students. But what’s on the Internet stays on the Internet, so archives of the school’s Dengvaxia announcement has resurfaced.
Shall we expect a press conference soon from St. Scho?
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A Filipino Roman Catholic Priest said during a recent homily that he prayed for President Rodrigo Duterte to get sick.
Well, that priest got sacked!
A lesson in Separation of Church and State…
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Antonio Trillanes has no hurt feelings towards President Rodrigo Duterte — despite the latter’s recent proclamation revoking the amnesty granted to the Senator and ordering his arrest.
The amnesty granted to Trillanes by ex-Presient NoyNoy Aquino was in connection with the Senator’s failed coup attempts in the past.
In a statement posted on his Twitter account, Trillanes hinted that Duterte is nearing sainthood (‘malapit na itong is Duterte’).
This is the first time that Trillanes made a public statement in favor of the President.
If Trillanes’ wish would come true, Duterte’s sainthood could preempt moves to make Cory Aquino the next Filipino saint. That hasn’t gone anywhere far.
