Press statement of Sen. Jamby Madrigal

Stop hitting the Bishops. Recent statements made by officials of mining companies against the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) smacks of arrogance. If there is anybody to blame, it is the mining companies themselves who have proved themselves unworthy.

The Bishops are pastors and not businessmen, who have personal interests to protect. The CBCP has made a collective stance to fight for life. I cannot say this about the mining companies. If they dont like to hear what the pastors of the people are saying, they are more than welcome to leave. Definitely, we are better off without them.
