President Duterte Signs EO that declares January as the “National Bible Month”

January is now officially the “National Bible Month” for every Filipinos after President Duterte signed an executive order No. 124 on January 5, 2017. The said holiday happens every last week of January.

It is very surprising as Duterte previously “told Filipinos not to believe in religions most especially the Roman Catholic church” because of the hypocrisy in the said church.

Duterte recalled the abuses he experience in his childhood from RC priests and so he has grieve feeling towards the church.

On one hand, Senator Manny Paquiao proposes to make every last Monday of January the “National Bible Day” to encourage every Filipino to read the Bible.
