Recently, a photo showing an image of Pope Francis that comes with quoted words in it, went viral online!
The quoted words say: “I was amazed by the fact that a politician is aiming at the highest position could be this honest. It was a first encounter for me to see a politician being honest about his concerns for his country other than kissing my hands for sole purpose of getting the support of the majority of the Catholic Population… There’s no need for an apology, I admire his honesty.”
A lot of people have quickly assumed that these words were really the ones stated by Pope Francis.
But just recently, the CBCP or the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines has denied that the Pope is endorsing Duterte in the 2016 elections!
The statement of the CBCP says: “May we inform the public that the statement from the Pope is not true. It came from a satire piece and is fake.”
The CBCP then pleaded everyone to stop spreading this photo because this is fake.
