Man who beheaded a Santo Nino statue gains the ire and outrage of netizens

  • Photos of a man with a beheaded Santo Nino are making rounds on social media right now.
  • From the photos, it seems the man himself sawed off part of the statue's head.
  • The man has gained mixed reactions from netizens for his alleged actions.

A viral photo of a man, posing with a beheaded statue of the Santo Niño, has been gaining mixed reactions from netizens. The photos suggest that the man himself beheaded the Santo Nino figure with a saw.

Roman Catholics hold religious icons in high regard. Aside from the crucifix, the Black Nazarene, and icons of Mother Mary as well as the saints  they also regard the dear images of the Santo Niño, the “Holy Child.” This is exactly why the photos of the allegedly defaced icon became a controversial topic. They impeded on the sensibilities of some of the Catholic faithful. Most took the act of beheading a saint figure as blatant disrespect for religion, despite the photos not having any context — the intentions of the man weren’t clear.
