The Poster Girl of the Pork Barrel System
The controversy involving Miss Piggy seems to have spread beyond corrupt politicians, and into the turf of the Church.
From CBCP News
MANILA, August 17, 2013—The incoming president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) on Saturday urged the Filipino faithful to learn from the lessons taught by the pork barrel scandal, saying that this controversy must lead the people to “greater action.”
Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas said Filipinos must not let time erase the lessons taught by the controversy to avoid the recurrence of other scams in the future.
“(The scam) continues to [baffle) and hurt us every time we discover something new about it,” Villegas said in an interview after a mass he presided for an organization’s 15th anniversary at the EDSA shrine.
“The hurt that it causes us should [lead us] into action. We should not just allow the hurt to lessen with the passage of time,” he said.
However, the prelate declined to comment when asked about the Catholic priests who have allegedly come to the defense of Napoles in disputing the kidnapping claim of whistleblower Benhur Luy.
