Priests, netizens slam display of placards at Mass




It only shows majority of the people and the Catholic Church is still not in conformity of having leftist groups protesting inside churches while a Mass is ongoing.
Ranhilio Callangan Aquino, dean of San Beda Graduate School of Law and also a priest, said in a post that “these people should be arrested".


"The Mass and the Church are not the place for partisan, ideological posturing. People gather to pray, and to gain respite from the divisiveness outside, and these people slither into churches, seize the opportunity of a congregation of people and hijack religious services for their purposes," the Dean said.

Netizens were also not in approval of the incident, saying that churches are not the right place for a protest.
"Those carrying the placards are wrong, obviously they have an intention when they flashed their propaganda materials inside the church. They were the ones who did not respect the Church, and maybe the police could no longer wait until the end of the mass so they acted. The protest was an obstruction of the Mass)," Lucky Siri said in a post in Filipino.


“No, sa labas dapat. Proper place to voice out your hinaing..outside the church kung may placards. Kung kailangan nila si Lord, lumuhod sila at ipagpray nila need nila (It should be done outside the church, its the proper place to voice out their sentiments, especially if they have placards. If they need God, get on their knees and pray)," Tes Santiago, said.
Oresliv Lariza, meantime, said the move of police personnel to confront them was right.
“I think they should be doing that outside the church. If they were warned and still they did it, I guess the police are right. If they follow the rules, it will not arrive at that)," she said in Filipino.
Fr. Fitz Azul, said protests are "not okay while mass is ongoing".
"Actually, during masses or any religious service, I don't want groups or people going around distributing protest flyers or anything. I don’t want any distractions. Kahit nga cellphone pinalalagay sa silent mode (even cellphones are being put on silent mode)," he said.
