Caloocan bishop blasts Duterte for calling his mother ‘whore’

Light of truth

My mother does not deserve to be insulted and called a “whore.” Caloocan Bishop Pablo Virgilio David said this in his Facebook post on April 3 after President Rodrigo Duterte called him a “son of a whore” during a speech in Malabon.

“[Duterte] called me a son of a whore for allegedly attacking him from the Church pulpit—which I have never ever done,” David said in a statement posted on Facebook.

“Our family does not expect anyone in government to give her a recognition for her immense contribution in nation-building. But we do not expect anyone either, to insult her memory and call her a whore. She does not deserve it,” David added.

The bishop said that his deceased mother, Bienvenida Siongco David, did everything to raise 13 children despite being a widow at the age of 58.

He added that his mother was able to raise one sociologist, one architect/urban planner, two lawyers, one civil engineer, one real estate broker, one banker, one medical technologist, one critical care nurse, one bishop, one nutritionist, one dentist, and one economist.

“Her efforts did not end up in vain; not a single one of her children became a liability to the country,” David said.
