MANILA— Concerned over its potential negative effects, a Catholic archbishop is speaking out against the possibility of a new casino in his community.
“We cannot turn a blind eye to the negative effects that gambling institutions will create in our society,” saidArchbishop Antonio Ledesma.
The prelate’s objection to the move comes on the heels of Limketkai Sons Inc.’s reported plans to build a new gaming site within its commercial complex in the heart of the Cagayan de Oro City.
