“‘Yun namang kaniyang pag-banat, palagi namang may base. Hindi naman siya bumabanat ng walang batayan. Saka yung kanya, based on personal experience, yung banat niya (His attacks always have a basis. He does not criticize without basis. And his tirades are based on personal experience),” Atty. Panelo said.
During his speaking engagement in the celebration of the 120th -year existence of Baptist churches in the Philippinesthe President noted that he was the “first” head of state to openly spoke against the leaders of the Catholic Church for their abuses.


 He also revealed that he was sexually molested by a priest when he was young.


The President clarified that despite  his attacks against the Catholic Church,  he has “deep and abiding faith in God.”
Panelo said the Chief Executive believed that everyone is child of “one God".
“Palaging sinasabi niya eh tayong lahat, ay anak ng isang pangkalahatang Diyos na isa lamang naman ang tinuturo sa ating lahat, magmahalan tayo, ‘yun ang tinuturo sa atin (He always says that all of us are children of one God, and that God teaches us to love each other. That’s the teaching of the Lord),” Panelo said.
