PHILIPPINE POLITICS AND CBCP

Small headline yersterday: "Congressmen warns CBCP from meddling in politics". How times change! CBCP was most welcome when it said last July: "No, PGMA should not step down, but...".

Apparently, the incoming Head is His Excellency Archbishop Angel Lagdameo of Jaro (although I could not confirm this from CBCP Online, the official website). You do not have to know where the good Archibishop stands on things:
  • The two congressmen (allied with the administration) reminded him to observe separation of Church and State, and warned him to stay out of politics.
  • And, admonished him to punish any of his subordinate priests who meddle with politics.

Maybe..just maybe, Cardinal Sin will turn over once more in his grave (see related article, this page) and stay right side up.
