On the President’s reported apology to God

I can only thank God for enlightening our president to make that humble apology. It shouldn’t matter much if it was my God or his God he is apologizing to, because there is only one God of the universe anyway.

I know there are firm God believers like me supporting his presidency who can now get over with the dilemma of whether or not to continue supporting his leadership.

We can now move on while praying for his continued enlightenment. It takes courage and character for a man to openly accept his mistake and apologize. This was how I knew the president in the many times that I was dealing with him when he was still mayor of Davao City.

I am glad that at the end of the day, he is still how I’ve known him.
