Afraid of bashing, Quiboloy lets ‘Tisoy’ roil

Pastor Apollo Quiboloy said he let the destructive storm pass through the country recently because he feared he would be bashed again by netizens, who had criticized him for claiming to stop the temblor that rocked Mindanao in October.

The leader of the religious sect Kingdom of Jesus Christ and a close friend of President Rodrigo Duterte, Quiboloy said in a video interview posted on Facebook that owing to the backlash, he led “Tisoy” blast its way through the country and just prayed for its swift passage.

“Because when I stopped the earthquake, they got angry. So many people bashed me. So, if I stop the storm, they might get angry again. So I just let [the storm] be,” he said in the vernacular.

“I said, ‘Let’s just pray for the storm to pass.’ Now it’s back to normal. Let’s just help those affected by the storm,” Quiboloy added.

Previously, the pastor claimed the public should thank him for stopping the deadly earthquake that struck Mindanao two months ago.

“I was just drinking coffee when it quaked. I said, ‘Earthquake, stop!’ It stopped,” he said in another televised program.

The self-described “Appointed Son of God” called on his followers to pray for the victims of “Tisoy” in another Facebook post, noting his group is ready to help with any calamity.

“The one thing that cannot be stopped is our helping others,” he said.
