VP Leni to Duterte: Respect church and critics

Vice President Leni Robredo commented over President Rodrigo Duterte latest attack to the church. She said the president should respect his critics.

Robredo was in Barangay Sabang, Calabanga, Camarines Sur when she gave her statements. She said fighting doesn't do good in our country, we 
find ways to work together.

“Going at it with priests doesn’t help because it creates animosity between the government and the Catholic Church. We should respect each other’s beliefs and get all hands on deck, call on all people to help either from the public or private sector, regardless of affiliation,” Robredo said.

“We are in extraordinary times and it doesn’t help if we fight each other. Yes, we have varying opinions, but in the scheme of things, we should look for issues where we can work together,” Robredo added.

Robredo, a Liberal Party (LP) member, has become more and more critical of President Duterte following her resignation from the Cabinet last December as Housing Czar.
