House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez slammed the Catholic Church after his bill on death penalty reinstatement was blocked for the second straight day.
“Itong Simbahang Katoliko, panay object ng object, pag may nangyaring heinous crimes, wala naman silang ginagawang tulong doon sa mga biktima,” Alvarez said.
“In fact pati yung biktima nga, hindi pa ililibing iyan, hindi pa nila bebendisyunan iyan kung hindi pa magbabayad,” Alvarez pointed out.
“Sana, kung hindi tayo makakatulong, ay huwag na lang tayong maging hadlang pa para mabigyan ng solusyon yung problema ng ating bayan,” he added.
The Catholic Church is against to death penalty and pressuring the lawmakers not to support the bill.
