Why I Think The Catholic Church In The Philippines Is Doing More Harm Than Good

The Catholic Church in the Philippines has become one of the largest institutions in our country. One can even say that it had a hand in the way our country came to be all those centuries ago when the Spanish first came to our shores. However, what I can’t help but notice is how the […]
