The hearing is ongoing as of this time.
I really don't get. Bakit ang mga obispo ang nailagay sa media hot seat?
At first I was skeptic on this issue. What side I would take? But then it is the public money is at stake.
They are now talking about the vehicles reported. The media should stop using “Pajero Bishops” instead “4x4 Bishops.” LOL.
THERE WAS NO PAJERO INVOLVED IN THIS ISSUE.
Then the words of Mother Teresa came into my mind that wherever the money came from, she would accept it because she can use it for a good purpose. In my opinion, the bishops did that because they saw the needs of their respective dioceses. One major concern is the transportation of goods and services. Would someone use a sentra/civic/vios on unpaved road networks? On steep slopes? Of course not! Eh di laman na lang ng talyer ang mga maliliit na sasakyan na yon. The 4x4 purchases were indeed justified.
The money was given as donation. So I think the issue that the must be in focus is about the PCSO doing the “charity work” not the bishops using the donated amount to buy a vehicle that would benefit the community.
