However, those characteristics of his have made him a lot of critics, detractors and enemies from both the local and international scene.

He even called one of his perceived enemies as a “son of a whore” and told him to “go to hell” for expressing concern about the alleged extrajudicial killings in the country.

Villegas is one of the few bishops who have the guts to stand up to Digong in public.

He slammed the President when he cursed Pope Francis; he reasoned with Duterte after he criticized the Catholic Church and its leaders in the Philippines; and he constantly raises awareness about respecting the human rights of criminals.

US Pres. Barack Obama
