Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez gambling is incompatible with Christianity and invoking God of good luck is flawed.
“It’s sort of not exactly right because there’s a right way of expressing spirituality and religious sentiments. It’s a defect,” said Iñiguez.
The prelate was reacting to reports that some bettors pray hard inside churches for signs so they could pick the winning combination in the lotto draw.
He also scored lotto bettors who reportedly wipe their tickets to images of saints inside churches as they pray for good fortune.
Because obviously,the correct way to increase your chances of winning is to make the sign of the cross, ask for the ticket to be blessed (in Jesus’ name, of course), and then make the sign of the cross again. Some Catholics are just so superstitious. ~ Red
