President Rodrigo Duterte found an ally with investment banker and Ateneo De University Alumnus Stephen “Steve” CuUnjieng in his sequence of tirade against God and the Catholic Church.

Steve considered President Duterte’s remarks as a welcome surprise in uncovering long – hidden secrets of the church and religious myths.

Once quoted by Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao, Steve said, “I never thought I would see a Philippine president take on the Church and now even better the ridiculous creation story in my lifetime. Bravo.”


Not known to many, Steve currently sits as Chairman of the leading global investment bank, Evercore Asia Limited and served as an Advisor to the Board at the fastest-growing and leading independent oil company in the country, Phoenix Petroleum Philippines. 

He was also Managing Director at Merrill Lynch where he headed Power and Energy Investment Banking for Asia and became Investment Banking Country Head for the Philippines. Steve has been in investment banking and financial services since 1986.

Malacañang Palace has taken the edge off the issue when Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced on Saturday, the pre – discussed and upcoming one – on – one dialogue by the President with Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) President Archbishop Romulo Valles.

“That is most welcome development. To dialogue, to listen to one another, is always good,” Valles implied during his interview with Radio Veritas last Tuesday about a possibility of the said dialogue.

The President had recently formed a committee to hold dialogues with the country’s different religious leaders and take care of the faith despite the controversies hounded the religious sector especially the Catholic faithful.
