Robredo claims not using the Catholic church for candidacy


Vice President Leni Robredo is on the denial about the issue hurled against her about using the Catholic church in increasing her chances in winning the 2022 national elections.


“Masyado naman yata ‘yung insulto sa simbahan," Robredo said in an ambush interview during her campaign tour in Cavite on Friday. "Tingin ko, ang simbahan hindi naman magpapagamit. ‘Yung simbahan, mas matatag na institusyon ito kaysa sa aming mga pulitiko.”

[Translation: It is an insult to the Church. In my view, the Church will not allow itself to be used. The Church is a stronger institution than us politicians.]

Robredo made the remark after she faced criticisms for meeting with religious leaders at the Cathedral-Shrine and Parish of the Good Shepherd in Novaliches, Quezon City on March 1.

The Vice President explained she has been visiting churches to seek help in fighting disinformation in the election season.

“Ang paniniwala ko, hindi na ito kung sino ‘yung kandidato mo sa eleksyon pero para sa akin, fight ito nating lahat na sisiguraduhin natin na ‘yung election na ito hindi siya dedesisyunan na base sa false information," she also said.

[Translation: In my belief, this fight is not only who will be your candidate for the election. But for me, this will be a fight to ensure that this election will not be decided based on false information.]

"And we need all the help we can get, ‘yung simbahan meron syang makinarya on the ground,” she added.
