‘Ceasefire in Murcia’

A word war ceasefire between the officials and the parish priests of Murcia town is on, following a meeting with Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra at the Bishop’s House in Bacolod City yesterday, Mayor Andrew Montelibano said.

Murcia officials have been calling for the removal of Fr. Greg Patiño, Murcia parish priest, and Fr. Agustin Hinayan, parochial vicar, for allegedly inappropriately using the pulpit, sacraments and religious activities, and broadcast and print media almost daily, to create a false image of Murcia as a drug and illegal gambling haven.

Patiño, on the other hand, said they did not name specific persons, they were just exercising their moral duty as priests in calling for the eradication of illegal gambling and drugs in Murcia.moremoremore
