Bong Go to priest: Patawarin ka ng Diyos
By Prince Golez
The special assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte hopes the priest who wished the chief executive ill will be forgiven by God.
“Patawarin sana ang pari ng panginoon,” Christopher “Bong” Go said on Thursday.
In a concelebrated Mass for Senator Antonio Trillanes IV at the Senate, Fr. Noel Gatchalian said he prayed for Duterte to get sick.
“Winawalang-hiya ang ating relihiyon at binabastos pati ang ating Diyos. Sinabi ng ating simbahan na magdasal… Kaya pinagdasal ko na lang na magkasakit si Digong. ‘Di ba sabi niya pagod na siya, kaya pahinga muna siya,” Gatchalian said which elicited laughter from the crowd.
Trillanes was placed in the custody of the Senate after Malacanang released Proclamation No. 572, which voided the amnesty given to the senator by former President Benigno Aquino III in 2010.
The amnesty was in relation to Trillanes’ involvement in the 2003 Oakwood Mutiny and the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege.
