The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), on Monday morning (December 29), warned the public of an erroneous statement shirt for the Papal Visit bearing the phrase “No Race, No Religion.” The quote being used for the statement shirt was being attributed to Pope Francis and was available for pre-orders online for P250 per piece.

The CBCP posted the warning on their official Twitter account:

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN has released a statement of apology for previously selling the particular statement shirt that offended the CBCP.

The statement goes:

ABS-CBN assures the public that there was no intent to deceive or mislead the public through the commemorative shirts that carry statements inspired by Pope Francis’ message of love, openness, and humility.

We apologize if a particular statement shirt offended anyone. We are pulling out the item from our online shop and all retail partner stores.

–Bong Osorio, ABS-CBN spokesman

  1. Sophists talaga followers ng abs-!!! dambel…

  2. Kritiko is right. The statement implies that Christianity is never a religion but a relationship. And the love that have been lavished on the cross is for all people regardless of their race. No race, No religion is ever out of the grace of God.

  3. Froglet, you ignoramus. Catholic teachings and practices are based on TWO things: Scriptures (Bible) and Tradition. If it’s NOT in Scriptures, then it’s in Tradition, and vice-versa, Wow, triple stoooooooooopid, Don’t flaunt your lack of knowledge…it’s downright embarrassing. Bwahahaha!

  4. Froglet, you ignoramus. Catholic teachings and practices are based on TWO things: Scriotures (Bible) and Tradition. If it’s NOT in Scriptures, then it’s in Tradition, and vice-versa, Wow, triple stoooooooooopid, pa Don’t flaunt your jack if knowledge…it’s downright embarrassing. Bwahahaha!

  10. Froglet, you’re a moron. What religion believes it has exclusivity to the truth. Just shut up. This is about a shirt, not religion. Stoooopid!

  11. Pati ba naman pagdating ni Pope Francis, gusto pagkakitaan ng ABS-CBN. Tsk.

  12. Galing- galingan teh? // December 29, 2014 at 10:50 pm //

    @ lonelymarino. Umaapaw ang ignorancia mo sa katuruan ng simbahang katolika. Kung totoong nnalalaman mo ang tunay na katuruan ng simbahan, hindi mo sasabihin yan. Kung saang sekta ka man nabibilang, walang pumipigil sayo. Kung jan ka magiging mabuting tao, jan ka. Pero para maggaling- galingan, manahimik ka na lang. Ni tuldok ay hindi kasing laki ang nalaalman mo ikukumpara sa mahigit 2000 taong karunungan at karanasan ng simbahan.

    Does the catholics even know what they’re doing is against the the Law of the scriptures?

  14. na alarm ang cbcp
    alam nila may mali din sila
    sa mga turo at pangaral nila

  15. I think what the statement implies is that Christianity is never a religion but a relationship. Jesus is not my religion, He is my Lord and my Savior. And the love that have been lavished on the cross is for all people regardless of their race. No race, No religion is ever out of the grace of God.

  16. gusto kasing magpasikat ang mga kapalmilyakis…kasi yan napala ninyo

  17. as if naman tama lahat tinituro ng simbahang catholic …just wondering
