I first saw the signs when I went to church last Sunday. No to Casino. Butuan is mostly Catholic (and other christian denominations). Butuan, as the local historians are emphatically saying, is the first location of the first catholic mass in the Philippines.
With the threat of having a casino in Butuan looming in the horizon, the diocesan church in Butuan is holding a signature campaign near the entrance area of the St. Joseph Cathedral.
Pro- casinos, I bet, are pushing for it for economic reasons, and on the opposing sides have their morality to fight for.
