Journalist @iamKarenDavila barks up the wrong tree defending Carlos Celdran's "Damaso" stunt


Revered Filipino "journalist" Karen Davila weighed in on the recent Supreme Court decision to uphold the conviction of Carlos Celdran who was found guilty of “offending the religious feelings”...

To the Supreme Court: How can @carlosceldran be penalized for Offending Religious Feelings when no less than the President has cursed the church?

Celdran, however was charged for his offense, which, in due course through due process, led to his conviction. Furthermore, whilst Duterte made a statement about "God" in general, Celdran specifically targeted a religious occasion with the aim of disrupting it.

Finally, the Supreme Court can only rule on something when charges are filed. So Davila is directing her lament at the wrong institution. She should, instead, direct it at the parties she presumes were "offended" by President Rodrigo Duterte's remarks.

And those are the facts of the matter.
