Pia Magalona and Robi Domingo criticized the policemen who confiscated protest materials from a churchgoer while attending Mass at the Quiapo Church yesterday, July 27.

Two officers in fatigue uniform took the items from a woman while Mass was ongoing, as seen in a video Dr. Raymond John Naguit shared on Twitter on the same day.

Following his post, Magalona aired her sentiments on the incident. She stressed that the officers were what her late husband, Francis, would call “mga kampon ni [S]atanas (followers of Satan).”

“As Catholics, we are taught to place ourselves in the presence of the Lord, as this is the house of our Father,” she added. “But these beasts just barge in [with] ZERO RESPECT. #SONAfaGUN

Television host Robi Domingo also slammed the authorities’ actions, saying, “Wala na talaga silang sinasanto (They really don’t choose who they mess with anymore).”

“Are we still in a democratic nation?” Domingo asked. “I think not.”

After the incident inside the church, Sen. Risa Hontiveros spoke with the involved policemen, explaining that no rally took place during Mass.

“Hindi katanggap-tanggap ang karahasan na ito, lalo na sa gitna ng sakramento,” she added. “Pati ang mga dasal ng mga tao sa loob ng simbahan, patatahimikin?”

(This harassment is not acceptable, especially during the middle of a sacrament. They want to silence even the prayers inside the church?)  /ra
