Sta. Maria challenges Duterte’s views on religion
Far Eastern University Institute of Law dean Mel Sta. Maria made a response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s remark against Christianity.
The President had questioned why Filipinos celebrate five centuries of Christianity in the Philippines.
For Sta. Maria, there’s only one answer.
“I celebrate Christianity sir because I believe in Christ. Christianity has its name simply because it is rooted in Christ,” said Sta. Maria.
The abogado also pointed out that the God of the Muslims, Christians and Jews “is the same GOD of Abraham.”
“And they all celebrate GOD in their own distinctive way as a sign of humility and gratitude,” he said.
