Philippine Senate probes illegal donations to Catholic bishops friendly to ex-President Arroyo
Remember all the crap the Catholic bishops were stirring up in the Philippines about contraception
? The president, in trying to get condoms and birth control pills to everyone who needs them was a "bad Catholic?"
What do you call a Catholic that takes bribes for favors in the Philippines then? Apparently bishop.
Of course the church and everyone involved are denying this as mudslinging...oh wait, nope:
""In a letter to the Senate, Archbishop Nereo Odchimar, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, said any donation to a bishop goes to the diocese and it is not the clergy's personal property.
"Whatever benefit the Catholic Church may draw from the gift is purely incidental," he said, adding they were willing to "face the consequences" of receiving financial aid from government because he said it is channeled to the needy.
"Our conscience is clear," Odchimar said.
Scum. Scum of the earth.
