House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez responded to the criticism of Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz against lawmakers.
Cruz attacked the statement of Alvarez that allegedly they will replace leaders of the Lower House and remove congressmen and congresswomen from the supermajority, if they will not vote in favor of the death penalty.
Alvarez called the archbishop as ‘playing god’ and ‘tabingi ang utak’.
The House Speaker added that Cruz should enter politics if he wants to interfere with government issues.
The congressman also insisted that the Commandment of God ‘Thou Shall Not Kill’ does not affect the law.
