Bishop Leopoldo Laucian of Bangued Abra sent shockwaves to the Catholic blogosphere when he made the following remark regarding the celebration of the Chinese New Year
“God is present in other religion and culture so the belief in Feng Shui, Astrology, and praying at Buddhist temples should be perceived as instruments that all draws us closer to God."
I posted this on February 13, FYI.
Fellow, Pinoy catholic blogger Carlos Palad of Rorate Coeli and St. John's Valdosta Blog also posted the same.
The reactions and comments of readers?
THE BISHOP IS A HERETIC.
Read how those who know their Catholic Faith better than this man who happens to be a Catholic bishop, defend their position that Bishop Jaucian is a downright heretic!
Here is the thread in Rorate Coeli.
Here is the thread in St. John's Valdosta.
Holy Father, when will you release us from shepherds who do not even know their Faith?
UPDATE: Go to this link where the original news from CBCP News was posted and see how the readers posted their reactions. Some are in Tagalog, understandably though. BUT none agreed with the bishop. All are saying: resign now, heretic...and others.
