Cagayan de Oro Archbishop decry the opening of new casino in Opol, Misamis Oriental

Archbishop Jose Cabantan of the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro Sent a pastoral letter to local priests and parishioner to publicly denounce the Grand Imperial, the new Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) casino in Barangay Taboc, along the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan highway.

In the pastoral letter, the archbishop warned that gambling is “addictive” and breeds “a network of corruption that feeds itself” on taxpayers and the poor.

“We oppose the operation of a gambling casino even if it’s legal and much more if it is clandestinely constructed in the archdiocese,” Cabantan said.

The archdiocese will call a meeting after the new year to discuss the actions against the Grand Imperial Casino Operation.
