Manny Hits Back Senator Leila De Lima And Archbishop Socrates Villegas

Sen. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao and Senator Leila De Lima do not agree each about the plan for the government to restore the capital punishment in the country.

For Pacquiao, “on a personal level, I can forgive. However, the heinous crime of drug trafficking is committed not just against a person but against the nation. Drug traffickers deserve death penalty,” he said.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "I think Senator Pacquiao is right when he said that drug traffickers deserve death penalty because he considers their acts heinous crimes. I don't why both De Lima and Bishop Villegas oppose to reimpose the death penalty when these criminals go unpunished and continue to kill innocent people."

Villegas made Jesus Christ, Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio as the examples of innocent people who were killed by death penalty, but when people would think about the long history of capital punishment and ask this question: who executed them? Mr. Dy believes that those people who killed them were among religious people or what we called priests.

Religion was so powerful organization before that it claimed so many innocent lives. I am not blaming everything to the religion but I think the influence of the church in a society is vitally important for people especially among churchgoers who have ample time to listen to the sermons of Catholic priests and other religious leaders. What they hear is what they believe. 

I don't understand why there are so many smart people out there who easily believe to the opinions of religious leaders even without fact checking, for as long as they say "this is what God..." Using the word God who said something like this is in fact ain't the right thing to say. I think that's what you said but not from God. In Proverbs 14: 15, it said "fools believe every word they hear, but wise people think carefully about everything."

I personally believe that Senator De Lima is accountable for the proliferation of illegal drugs in the country as a drug protector as what others would call her. I don't think she is a political prisoner as what the CBCP President Socrates Villegas would defend her. Senator Pacquaio and President Rodrigo Duterte have a political will to stop heinous crimes and revive the death penalty, others have remained silent and said nothing about it.
