Rappler Talk: Will religious endorsements work in 2019 polls?
Rappler talks to sociologist of religion Jayeel Cornelio about religious endorsements – in the time of the President who said God is stupid

MANILA, Philippines – Experts view the May 13 elections as a referendum on President Rodrigo Duterte, the leader who called God stupid and said bishops should be killed in this predominantly Christian country.

This atmosphere fuels the motivations of religious groups endorsing candidates in the May 13 elections.

These groups include the People’s Choice Movement composed of Catholic and Christian groups, a group of 150 Aglipayan leaders and members that endorsed opposition candidates, and even a Catholic prelate, Novaliches Bishop Antonio Tobias, who openly supported the Otso Diretso opposition slate.

Will religious endorsements work in the 2019 elections?

Rappler talks to sociologist Jayeel Cornelio about this issue – as well as other topics, such as the youth vote.
