So: Philipine dictator Rodrigo Duterte points out that the entire Original Sin schtick is painfully stupid, and the bishop down there responds by summoning Catholics to 3-days of fasting and prayer.
Archbishop Romulo Valles and the association of bishops that he heads called for a day of prayers on July 16 to invoke “God’s mercy and justice on those who have blasphemed God’s holy name, those who slander and bear false witness and those who commit murder or justify murder as a means for fighting criminality”. Starting on July 17, the bishops asked Filipino Catholics to join them in three more days of prayers with fasting and alms-giving without giving other details.
Now, I freely admit that I’m no expert on the mind of Our Invisible Friend, but this makes no sense to me. Surely Our Invisible Friend can decide what to do about Duterte all by Himself with being nagged by millions of hungry Catholics?
