WATCH: Bianca Gonzales-Intal slams Duterte as insensitive
TV personality Bianca Gonzalez-Intal once again criticizes President Rodrigo Duterte for his latest statement According to Rappler, the president attended a gathering of a religious group in Davao City on August 31. In his speech for the gathering, he said, "Mabuti hindi ako nasali doon eh 'di ngayon naging bakla na ako (It's good I didn't join the priesthood or else now I would be a homosexual.)”
Bianca Gonzalez-Intal tweeted, “Not the most sensitive statement to both priesthood and the LGBT community.” This is not the first time that Duterte blasted on the Catholic priests. During his campaign, Duterte expressed his views on the Catholic Church and blames the Church of “hypocrisy” and lambasted them for sins like corruption and sexual abuse.
The president also admitted that he was sexually harassed by a Jesuit priest when he was in high school.
He also infamously cursed Pope Francis blaming him for traffic jams during his visit in the country in 2013. However, the president later apologized to the pontiff and has plans to fly to Vatican City to personally apologize to the Pope.
Meanwhile, the TV host Bianca Gonzalez has been critical of the current administration. She tweeted before about the president’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) and about Marcos’ burial.
