President Rodrigo Duterte has declared January of every year as “National Bible Month” in recognition of the “religious nature of the Filipino people and the elevating influence of religion in human society.”

Duterte’s Proclamation No. 124 dated Jan. 5, a copy of which was released to the media on Monday, also set every last week of January as “National Bible Week.”

Curiously, the President previously told Filipinos not to believe in religions, particularly the Roman Catholic church, whose leaders he has assailed for being “hypocrites.”

In signing the order, the President said the 1987 Constitution mandated the national government to promote the ethical and spiritual values of the citizens and to help improve their morality.

“(I)t is fitting and proper for the molding of the spiritual, moral and social fiber of our citizenry, that national attention be focused on the importance of reading and studying the Bible,” read a portion of the proclamation.

“(W)hile maintaining neutrality in its treatment of all religious communities, the government is not precluded from pursuing valid objectives secular in character even if it would have an incidental result affecting a particular religion or sect,” it added.

Mr. Duterte said history has seen the “profound impact” of the religious scripture- the basis of all Christian religions worldwide- on the “life of nations and how it has moved and inspired many people, including statesmen and social reformers to work for the betterment of their fellow human beings even at great cost to themselves.”

No mention at all of how this man is a murderer? Declaring this national bible month does not erase him authorising thousands of murders and bragging about how he killed people himself... https://www.google.nl/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2016/dec/14/philippines-president-rodrigo-duterte-personally-killed-criminals?client=ms-android-samsung
He is using the power of the sword to terrify and kill evildoers just like the Bible says. He's cleaning up the filth destroying his country, making it safer and you're complaining about people who should be put to death not getting treated well. If this zeal for destroying evil were applied to American politics, we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now. You are a great example of why women shouldn't vote or get involved in civil government.
Nice to know about this month as National Bible Month.
Yes. It's a high time for everyone to have his/her a Bible especially Christians. Christians means someone who believes Christ as his/her Personal Savior and Lord of his life. I am not talking here religion but a relationship to Christ. Because religion cannot save souls but Christ only.
Thank you
This is our prayer . The risen mighty God in Jesus name will subdue our nation Philippines and send forth His Word to save Filipinos whom He loves so much to be saved and have eternal life..Romans 3:23 all have sinned and fall short of the glory of god. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Repent and be saved. . Let's humble ourselves and ask forgiveness for what we don't know the truth of the Bible in having relationship with our Heavenly Father.. I was once with you living in religion but the truth God chose me to forgive and loved me so much that having my faith in action to give my heart ❤️ and received Christ as my lord and savior I can definitely certain and sure what the Bible says I will be with him eternally.. praise be to God.. all glory to God .. our country Philippines needs Jesus our Savior. Dear God by the power of your Holy Spirit open the blind eyes to see and hear your Word the holy bible whic is life.. thank you for sending our president Duterte to rule our country by your authority and wisdom.
