A teacher from Davao who was abducted last Wednesday was found dead last March 8. She is just 20 years old, living the difficult life as we all experienced on a daily basis. She is a woman who committed no crime and whose only case her torturer and murderer can think of is that her father is an NPA commander. The sins of her father the criminals make sure she shouldered the pain. They mutilated her genital and stab her repeatedly with ice-pick. Rape is evident.
The church is beginning to observe the lenten season but this early we already grieved because of this terrible injustice.
If this government will not arrest the criminals they will bear the brunt of the people's anger.
What happened to Rebelyn only validates that evil still resides in the heart of those who are supposed to practice Christian virtues.
They are an abomination in the eyes of God and the murderers can never rest in peace!.
