President Rodrigo Duterte strikes back at oligarch-loving bishops, who he alleged of plotting to oust him since 2016, saying he would reveal their corruption to the public.

“‘The Popes,’ basahin ninyo. I guarantee you hindi na kayo Katoliko bukas. Nandoon lahat ‘yung — the sordid history of…[Read ‘The Popes.’ I guarantee you that you won’t be Catholics by tomorrow. It’s all there, the sordid history of (the popes)],” the President said addressing the Filipino community in Japan.

“May isang pope diyan, ‘yung si Borgia, anak niya — he had an incestuous relationship. ‘Yung anak nila inalagaan nila maging pope. Naging pope din talaga natin. I just forgot the g****** name. Ganun. Ganun ang” he said, referring to Pope Alexander VI and his mistress in the 15th century.

In the same speech, the President scolds the clergies over their alleged involvement in corruption.

“Lahat ‘yang mga pari, mga obispo diyan? P***** i** obispo ng elitista ‘yan, maniwala kayo. One day I will make public kung anong ginawa ng… Naghingi ng mga kotse kay Gloria. Binigyan ng mga Pajero ang mga p***** i**,” the President said in a speech during his visit in Japan.

“Tapos i-justify nila karaming Pilipino. Hindi na lang ibinigay ng bigas, ibinigay mo sa… Kaya ‘yang obispo elitista ‘yan. They just serve ‘yung mga mayayaman,” he added.

The President was reportedly referring to the half a dozen sport utility vehicles (SUVs) donated by then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to at least eight bishops a few months before she left office in 2010. 

Back then, the bishops were perceived to be on Arroyo’s side despite for calls for her to resign after the controversial “Hello Garci” incident.
