Bishop slams modern day ‘Judases’ behind summary killings

walk-for-life

MANILA— As a wave of drug-related killings continues in the country, a Catholic bishop condemned those who sow violence the same way some once supported Judas against Jesus.

In a strongly-worded homily during a Mass after a “Walk for Life” in Navotas City on Sunday, Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of Kalookan said that behind the violence are “Judases” who are in cahoots with the killers.

He said if some people consider the suspected drug personalities as “termites of society,” so are those behind the extrajudicial killings.

“They are the new ‘Makapili’ during the Japanese’ time who would betray their fellowmen and say that they’re connected to drugs,” said David in Filipino, referring to pro-Japanese collaborators who who spied on their fellow Filipinos during World War II.

Death list

“With what they’re doing, it’s as if they’re already killing their fellowmen because this drug watch list is also virtual death list because those who are on it get killed.”

Saying that the country “cannot suppress crime by committing another crime”, the prelate said that summary executions will just worsen the drug problem.

He said those behind the extrajudicial killings are “termites” who violate due process and rule of law.

“Not only are houses infested with termites but society as well. Like now, the killers are with us here in Navotas, Kalookan, Malabon. Everyday, they kill,” said David.

At a time of increasing drug-related violence, he lamented that majority of these murder cases remain unsolved and the killers are still on the loose.

Mysterious power failure

“Simple robberies like bag-snatching can be seen on CCTV. But those who abduct and kill innocent people are unseen. Why is that? Are they invisible?” he asked.

Hundreds of people, including students, parishioners and lay leaders, marched along the streets of Navotas to call for an end to summary executions, particularly within the diocese.

The diocese comprises the cities of Caloocan, Malabon, and Navotas where there are a high number of drug-related deaths.

The more than 1-km march started at the San Ildefonso Parish Church, ending at the San Jose Parish Church, where a Mass was held.

A conspicuous power outage, however, hit the San Jose Church shortly before the marchers arrived at the area.

“The power failure happened only here in our church, the line was cut. We don’t know why this thing happened.” David said. CBCPNews
