Politicians of Malabon City left people disgusted after they used Mary the Blessed Virgin to fuel their campaign.
In a tarpaulin greeting the Catholic faithful for the Feast of the Nativity, Malabon officials Coun. Enzo Oreta, Mayor Lenlen Oreta, Cong. Jaye Lacson-Noel, and Vice Mayor Ninong dela Cruz are seen holding up a hand sign while smiling.
Father Fiel Pareja was one of those who saw the stunt as unacceptable.
“I am speechless?” Pareja said, adding in a follow-up post. “Again, why?” he tweeted.
Apparently, the tarpaulin was put up two days before the Sept. 8 Catholic feast.
The move was the lowest thing netizens have seen in a while, with some calling it “trapo.”
