Quotes

In filing the bill, Rodriguez quoted Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz, a staunch anti-jueteng advocate, who said, "stl is used as a cover-up for jueteng."
"if jueteng was not only a moral shame but a fearsome social cancer then, it is very much more so during these times since small town lottery became its intimate buddy, making themselves an awesome and fearful pairing. the pairing is under the command of exactly the same long-operating jueteng lords themselves. as a deadly matter of course, stl uses the jueteng hierarchical structure itself, giving payola to the same protectors in the persons of infamous local public officials and police authorities" Cruz said
"tulad ng mga naunang akusado, tiyak na dadaing din ang mga ito ng iba’t ibang sakit. that is the new gimmick, at mukha namang ang gimmick ay umuunlad. ito nga si napoles nasa operating room na. ayoko namang sabihin yung iba baka nga ganun din. pero parang standard na yun, policy basta ikaw ay na-accused. yung ngang sa pagibig scam, masakit na rin daw ang braso, we will see what will happen" Archbishop Cruz told Church-run Radyo Veritas
