MANILA---On August 29, artist Mideo Cruz released a curious portrait on his social media accounts. It’s a photo of President Duterte’s face photoshopped into what Catholics will recognize as a portrait of the Sacred Heart. In his left hand is a gun, instead of the earth, and quickly you’ll notice something’s amiss: It’s the Sacred Heart without the heart. At the bottom it says “Our Father.” According to Cruz, “LordDigs” is the latest of his neo deities series, which was triggered by a meme about 17-year-old Kian delos Santos. “People are mobilizing for his sainthood. Of course it was fake news pero siguro ito din yung nag motivate na ilabas ko na itong LordDigs,” Cruz says. [More]
