AMRSP executive secretary Rev. Fr. Angel Cortez said it is hard to distinguish which news is genuine and fake, citing that technology plays a big role in the said “crisis.”

“Yung mamamayan, yung masa kinakain na din ng teknolohiya at dahil kinakain sila ng teknolohiya wala silang ibang batayan kundi yung nababasa nila sa social media kaya ang stand ng Simbahan diyan totoo yung sinabi ng Cardinal, we are really having a “Crisis of Truth” dahil sa panahon ngayon hindi na natin alam kung sino talaga ang nagsasabi ng totoo,” said Cortez during an interview with Church-run Radio Veritas.

Cortez urged the public to sustain their faith in the Lord because it is the only way to know the truth.

“Lahat ay nagki-claim na ang sinasabi nila ay katotohanan pero sa ating loob alam natin na walang ibang daan ang katotohanan kundi ang pagyakap sa buhay ni Kristo at ang Ebanghelyo,” he said.

Cortez, meanwhile, expressed that the Quo Warranto decision against former Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Serreno is a clear violation of the 1987 Constitution and signals the “death of democracy.”

“Namatay ang demokrasya dahil yung mga taong inaasahan natin na magtanggol sa atin at makinig ay sila pa mismo ang nanguna para ipakita sa buong Pilipinas na sila ang may hawak ng kapangyarihan at dahil doon sa kanilang desisyon tuluyan nilang pinatay ang demokrasya,” he said.
