A Facebook user named Emmanuel Tala has posted a very controversial screenshot of Bulgar's banner headline on February 14, 2017 saying, "Kung Sa Diyos Wala Kaming Takot, Sayo Pa Duterte!" by Archbishop Socrates Villegas.
Whether this statement did really come out of the mouth of the Archbishop of Dagupan-Lingayen, that remains to be seen until we hear the official word from the opinionated CBCP head.
