MANILA, Philippines – While other presidential candidates tap celebrities to boost their campaigns, one of their rivals scored a coup of sorts after getting the endorsement of 6 Catholic bishops without really trying.
John Carlos 'JC’ delos Reyes, standard-bearer of Ang Kapatiran Party, has been described by the bishops as “the conscience vote for 2010.” (Read: Profile: John Carlos 'JC’ de los Reyes / JC de los Reyes’ first 100 days if elected)
Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles said the entry into the race of Delos Reyes and Ang Kapatiran Party, whose platform of government hews closely to Christian doctrine and principles, might provide the trigger for political change. (Read: JC de los Reyes: Sex know-how for youth is instinctive)
“They are the only candidates who speak their mind, speak what is truthful and what is honest and idealistic,” he added.
