'Classmate' confirms priest sexually abused Duterte

A man who claimed he was a classmate of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in high school confirmed that they were sexually abused by a priest.

A reliable source told Coolbuster.net that the shocking revelation was made during an on-air interview with a local radio station, wherein the man narrated their story.

Duterte's alleged high school classmate said a certain "Father F," a Jesuit priest, told them to form a line and then started to touch their genitals.

Although he graduated at the Holy Cross of Digos High School, the local chief executive reportedly spent years of taking secondary education at Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU).

The source did not mention the name of the radio station and the whole identity of the priest, but said the interview took place Thursday morning, December 3, two days after Duterte revealed that a priest sexually abused him when he was young.

The 70-year-old presidential candidate made the allegation amid criticisms he received from Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines president Archbishop Socrates Villegas.

The CBCP head condemned Duterte for cursing Pope Francis in his speech last Monday. The city mayor answered by dropping a bombshell against the Church and describing the Roman Catholic religion as "not so sacred after all."
