Tagbilaran Bishop Abet Uy has condemned the foam party recently held in a resort in Panglao town.
In his homily on Wednesday, Bishop said “doing a foam party with topless women as entertainers is wrong because women are treated as objects, no longer as subjects or as fellow human beings.”
“Ang maong malaw-ay nga buhat ug pasundayag usa ka pagtamastamas sa Diyos nga maoy nagbuhatbsa tawo ug naghatag kaniya og talagsaong dignidad.
Bishop Uy called on local leaders to stop indecent parties.
“Gipahimuslan nato ang ilang kapobrehon, ang ilang kawad-on, ug ang ilang kahuyang. And to do such thing during a time when we are celebrating International Women’s Month, when we are supposed to honor our mothers, sisters, aunties, and nieces, makes it more inhuman, unchristian and reprehensible,” he said.
The foam party was held last March 5 in Amanzara Resort in Panglao.
The resort was under investigation over a party in its premises where guests have reportedly violated some of the province’s health and safety protocols.
Photos and videos of the foam party were circulated in the social media where people were caught partying without face masks and face shields and disregarding physical distancing.
It became more controversial after a guest was topless during the foam party.
