Ever wondered where your church offerings go to? Well, you might want to take a look this table and see how big are the stock investments of Roman Catholic Churches and affiliate Catholic groups. Most of them are in Billions and Millions!
This table was shared by Peter Tiu Laviña in his Facebook account last Tuesday, August 9, 2016. Laviña is now one of President Rodrigo's tio aides, campaigners, and political strategists.
He captioned the photo with:
"Long before he was elected, President Duterte had repeatedly warned of a bloody war against drugs and crime. And yet 16,601,976 voted for him and 91% gave him a thumbs up just a month into office. Those criticizing him now against the war on drugs - many we never heard of condemning the barbarity and brutality of drug addicts raping small children, murdering old people - are "righteous" people who let evil win with the drug menace in every facet of our society by doing nothing in the past. There is one bishop who suggested we should stop killing (Tell that to the drug-crazed man!) and instead solve poverty. Well, I totally agree monsignor. We should start by distributing all the properties, cash in bank and cash on hand of the Roman Catholic church. These are after all money of the people. If we cannot support the government's drive against crime and drugs, at least let us not stand in the way to be seen as "protectors" or "coddlers" of criminals and drug lords. The use of Human Rights is one of the most bastardized alibi in the world."
The post went extremely viral and garnered more than 3,000 shares already. One of the top comments was posted by Jorge Barba saying:
"These assets should have gone to the locals. But a papal nuncio way back at the dawn of 20th century leveraged the Vatican as a civic state to lobby to the Philippine Supreme Court to decide based on law and not on justice.
Thus local priests who were to abandon their churches had no choice but forced to remain otherwise the would lose their turf.
All the stolen wealth accumulated by the Friars then went to RC pockets. These billions according to Cruz are 'mana' (inheritance) from the Spanish Conquistadors even though it is clear as day that these wealth are stolen."
Do you agree?
