Not a fan of the man pero noong pinananood ko yung Che-che Lazaro Presents: Mga Anak ng Jueteng, I saw the point he was trying to make. I find him funny, in fact, I guess, he finds himself funny too, sometimes laughing at himself with what he's saying. But surely, he got his point across. For me. Honest and clever, this priest.
Archbishop Cruz: According to Senator Pimentel (pertaining to Pampanga), that's the Vatican of jueteng and I agree, up to now. I think he had a prophetic vision. Lubao is the St. Peter's. (Laughs hard). Sorry ha.
Archbishop Cruz: Ako na ang nagsabi, ako pa rin ang magpapatunay? E ikaw? Anong gagawin mo? Binubwenas ka. Ilang milyon ang intelligence fund mo? Nasa iyo ang PNP, nasa inyo ang NBI, nasa iyo yung whatever ek-ek. Ano ka? Umalis ka na lang dyan, palit tayo. Lahat ng tubero, barbero, sorbetero, lahat alam kilala kung sino ang jueteng lord sa lugar nila, pero sila hindi nila kilala.
Che-che Lazaro: Bakit sa palagay nyo po hindi masugpo ang jueteng?
Archbishop Cruz: Pera. Judas started it all, my dear
Che-che Lazaro: 30 pieces of silver.
Archbishop Cruz: Yes mam. Then killed himself. But these people, that's the last thing they will do. (burst into laughter).
Archbishop Cruz: And don't tell me jueteng does not kill.
Che-che Lazaro: It does?
Archbishop Cruz: It does. The moment, for example you did not make intrega, you're done. You are a collector?, you're gone. And the moment you violate the norm of territory, you're gone.
Archbishop Cruz: Just because you cannot stop it, you legalize it. What's next? You'll legalize drugs? You'll legalize prostitution? Just because you cannot leak it, you say it's according to the law. Oh c'mon, nakakahiya naman yon.
