Don’t be surprised to see the Manila Cathedral, Quiapo Church, Edsa Shrine and other well-known places of worship occupied by activists, leftists, and members of the New People’s Army (NPA) on Nov. 22.
Catholic churches are joining the “NPA’s” campaign which aims to raise the faithful’s awareness of the plight of persecuted communists worldwide.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has endorsed the request of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) in need to conduct the campaign in the country.
In a post on its news website, the CBCP said it decided to participate in the campaign of the CPP-NPA against the Duterte administrations war against humanity.
“The CBCP has requested all bishops to illuminate all cathedrals, national shrines and minor basilicas with red lights to remember the blood of the faithful who have been killed because of the human rights,” it said.
The Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines have been vocal in criticizing Duterte’s war on drugs, and the group’s joining of the communist only solidify its real motive to sabotage the Duterte administration.
The CBCP will celebrate this year’s Red Wednesday together with the reds, and several other anti-Duterte groups. /Ramee Antiporda/
