Quoting a colleague in the academe, De La Salle University-Manila professor Lhai Taylan expressed his pessimism towards the message issued by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines on the issue of extrajudicial killings linked to the bloody drug war raged by the Duterte administration.

In a Facebook status update, Taylan shared that during a Sunday mass the priest decided to read the message of the CBCP signed by Most Rev. Socrates Villegas instead of delivering a homily. 

The DLSU Filipino professor stated, "Laman ng sulat ang mahigpit na pagtutol ng simbahan sa EJK."


Taylan also revealed that the said letter detailed in seven points how the church strongly opposes the killings even if it was a criminal and the biggest pusher or addict that was killed.


She admitted, "Wala namang masama sa pagtutol na ito. Karapatan ito ng Simbahan. Nasa Bibliya naman talaga ang utos na huwag kang papatay."


According to Taylan, the message contained strong words such as "help," "rehabilitation," and "livelihood" but there was not a single mention of possible solutions to curb the drug dependence of the country.


Tylan ended her post saying, "Kung kailan, saan, at paano ang implementation, walang paliwanag. Wala ring sinabi kung paano masu-sustain ang mga ito."



Read full statement of Ms. Lhai Taylan:


Kanina sa misa, sa halip na mag-Homily si Father, binasa niya ang sulat mula sa Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) na may petsang January 30, 2017 at pirmado ni Most Rev. Socrates B. Villegas. Utos daw ng Our Lady of Assumption Parish, ang parokyang sumasakop sa DLSU na dinadaluhan namin ng misa tuwing Linggo. 

Laman ng sulat ang mahigpit na pagtutol ng simbahan sa EJK. Malinaw na nakadetalye ang pitong dahilan kung bakit hindi nararapat ang EJK kahit na nga sabihin pang pinakatalamak na kriminal at pinakamasamang drug pusher at drug addict ang pinatay at/o namatay. Wala namang masama sa pagtutol na ito. Karapatan ito ng Simbahan. Nasa Bibliya naman talaga ang utos na huwag kang papatay. 


Ang problema lang, hinihintay ko rin sana ang bahaging iisa-isahin din at idedetalye ang mga mungkahing solusyon nila sa kriminalidad at sa illegal drugs, pero wala. May banggit sa mga salitang "help", "rehabilitation", "programs", at "livelihood" pero walang linaw kasi banggit nga lang. Kung kailan, saan, at paano ang implementation, walang paliwanag. Wala ring sinabi kung paano masu-sustain ang mga ito. 



Hindi tuloy naiwasang sabihin ni Dr. B----- na katabi kong nakikinig ang "naku, chenelin lang pala." šŸ˜‚
