Duterte gave the order to prohibit the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in mostly Muslim city of Marawi.
Instead of repairing the Cathedral Duterte demanded that a ecumenical Mosque site be built to convert Catholics to Islam.
Here read the half truth:
Philippines: Repair Relations Before Replacing Cathedral
New Rehabilitation Center for Christians and Muslims Kidnapped by Islamists Repairing inter-faith relations and rebuilding lives in the Philippines’ city of Marawi must take priority over replacing the ruined cathedral – according to Church leaders still coming to terms with one of last year’s worst outbreaks of Islamist violence. Reporting back from a fact-finding and project-assessment trip to the Philippines’ city of Marawi, Aid to the Church in Need’s Reinhard Backes said Church leaders were focusing on initiatives aimed at community healing for all people irrespective of faith background. Last year, Daesh (ISIS)-linked militant group Maute laid siege to the city for four months and 24 days. More than 1,100 people died in the violence. Source
I will destroy the Church and the present status of so many priests and what they are doing. You priests, bishops, you condemn me and suggest I withdraw, but then I will start to open my mouth. There are so many secrets that we kept as children. Do not force (me to speak) because this religion is not so sacred. Duterte
