Philippine Daily Inquirer  MINDANAO BUREAU CORRESPONDENT KARLOS MANLUPIG LAMENTSFILTHY HYPOCRITES. As I was shooting in Davao City‘s San Pedro Cathedral during the observance of Good Friday, I noticed a Tagalog speaking man instructing this security guard to throw out a half-naked man who is silently kneeling and praying inside the church, saying that the churches in Manila prohibit persons with mental disabilities and vagrants to enter its premises. The security guard then assaulted the poor man without any warning poking him in the ribs several times using a “ratan” truncheon…I immediately took several burst shots of the detestable incident. Suddenly, an old man with a Bible in his hand tapped me on my shoulder and told me that it is improper to take photos of the incident and that it is also improper to take photos inside their heavenly church. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? Tama si Dong Abay. Banal na aso, santong kabayo.  NOTE: I opted to post this blurry picture to preserve the identity of the victim. 


  1. kung hubad yung tao, pwede naman sigurong bigyan ng damit para may maisuot.

    kung mabaho yung tao, pwede mo naman sigurong tiisin at kung di ka makatiis, lipat ka ng ibang lugar para hindi maka-istorbo dun sa taong nagdadasal.

    malaking issue ito kapag kinagat ng media. yare talaga.
