Former senator Francisco”Kit” Tatad said President Rodrigo Duterte committed “nothing less than an act of disrespect” by traveling to Muslim countries on official visits during Holy Week.

Tatad, a member of the conservative Catholic group Opus Dei, said in his April 13 column for the Manila Times that Duterte would’ve been better off going on a vacation with his family while Filipino Catholics observe Holy Week instead of visiting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom of Bahrain and Qatar.

“I cannot imagine any of his hosts—Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, Bahrain King Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, or Qatari Emir Tanim bin Hamad al Thani—making a pilgrimage to a non-Islamic place during Ramadan while the Muslim world is doing its month-long religious fast,” he said.

Tatad said it is his duty as President to ensure he is not “publicly and officially associated with any act hostile” to Catholic believers, which comprise more than 80 percent of the Philippine population.

“As their President, DU30 has a duty to safeguard that wealth, whatever his religious belief or non-belief. Either he is part of the culture or he is not; he cannot lead the nation if he is not,” the former senator said.

  3. MR TATAD REVIEW YOUR RELIGION VERY CAREFULLY . GET A COPY OF THE PRIMARY DOCTRINES OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC CHURCH ! THEN COMPARE IT WITH THE PRIMARY DOCTRINES OF THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO THERE IN COMMONWEALTH AVENUE IN QUEZON CITY ! ! GETTING THESE MATERIALS IS YOUR CHALLENGE ! IF YOU ARE LUCKY TO COMPREHEND THE PRIMARY DOCTRINES OF THESE 2 RELIGIONS , YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOUR RELIGION IS CATHOLIC AND NOT REALLY CHRISTIAN ! YOU MUST REALIZE CATHOLICITY IS MILES AWAY AND DIFFERENT FROM CHRISTIANITY ! YOUR RELIGION IS NOT A CHRISTIAN RELIGION AS YOU BELIEVE IT TO BE ! YOU ARE A CATHOLIC NOT A CHRISTIAN ! YOU WERE DECEIVED BY THESE FALSE PADRE DAMASOS ! SO YOUR YOUR OBSERVATIONS ON THE ACTION OF THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT APPLY TO CHRISTIAN VALUES ! CATHOLIC BELIEVERS, AS YOU MENTIONED ( NOT CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS, TAKE NOTE OF THIS ) MAKES YOUR OBSERVATION OUT OF CONTEXT ! YOU ARE ACTUALLY NOT A CHRISTIAN, YOU ARE A CATHOLIC, MR TATAD ! DONT BE SO DIS HEARTENED !

    1. catholics are christians... Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, who serves as the focal point for the religion.

    2. What is the definition of "being christian"? Catholic believes in the Trinity.. to be a christian basically you must believe in Jesus Christ teaching. Not even one sentence or verse in the Bible where Jesus says that he is God. I believe that If you believe in Trinity, then you oppose the basic and entire teaching of Jesus Christ.

  4. Kit Tatad you are the most hypocritical and disrespectful person I've ever read. Your religion cannot save a country nor can save the OFW shouting for help when you and other oppositions have neglected for years in Aquino's regime. It's holy week in your religion as you said, don't you think you yourself should be repenting for your sins instead of criticizing others? You're disgusting!

  5. Opus Dei-Luzonian vs. Jesuit-Oriented-Mindanaoan = Conservative vs. Liberal. Tatad just lives in one belief system. He should not impose.

  9. Sabi sa bibles mahalin mo ang kapwa mo. Hindi sinabi ng bawal magpunta sa Muslim country during Holy Week. Catholic Church doesn't care priests they go on vacation anywhere and having fun with their boyfriends sacristan

  11. I don't understand the point of this ex-senator tatad. you were given your freedom to practice your beliefs and yet you want to hold others to be with you. all acts that is not written in the holy bible and not commanded by God is called tradition. If you want to practice your freedom of religion, focus only to yourself and not to others because it only shows your hypocrisy or the display of your beliefs. God didn't commanded us to celebrate His crucification but if you want because that is your tradition then don't attack others who has his own freedom too. the grace of God was given to us and we can proclaim or share that everyday of our lives and not only a display of beliefs or tradition.
