This afternoon, evangelical christian group and devotees of the Black Nazarene heated a discussion about the ridiculous claim of former that “catholics worship statues” , Manila Bulletin reported.
Equipped with megaphone and paraphernalias, the group stands in their belief that christian should communicate with God instead of worshipping statues.
Participants in the feast of the Black Nazarene drew rage about the speaker’s offensive sentiments against their belief which led to drive them out the area.
“Unang una, ang pinapangaral niya masama raw kaming sumamba sa rebulto. Kami lehitimo, lalo ako isinilang ako katoliko. Hindi ako sumasamba pero patnubay ko ang Hesus Nazareno,” a faithul Nazarene believer belted out.
The group was dismayed by the maltreatment they got from devotees saying, “Wala kaming ginagawa. Kami ay nagsasabi ng katotohanan. Nasa bibliya, okay lang sa’min papaalisin nila kami ‘wag lang nila kaming gagamitan ng dahas.”
The incident gained different views among the netizens.
Evangelical christian Leo Panlilio commented that what his co-brothers did was an act of rudeness and argument like this must be brought in proper venue.
According to one of the protesters, no matter how different the beliefs the different christian denominations are they are all worshiping one God.
