Former Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos was given a hero's burial in Manila on Nov. 18, a move that triggered protests across the country.
Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo of Manila described the late dictator's burial in the Philippines' cemetery for heroes as "dishonorable."
Father Jerome Secillano, of the public affairs office of the bishops' conference, said it "desecrated the meaning of honor, nobility, and heroism."
