Catholic Church Cries Foul Over Bikini Open At Ati-Atihan Festivities, Here’s Why

A65F3FB8-D69E-49E0-97E2-5F11685DC680KALIBO, Aklan (The Adobo Chronicles, Iloilo Bureau) – It’s that time of year when Kalibo transforms into a mardi-gras universe to applaud the Ati-Atihan Festival, commemorating the feast of the Sto. Niño, or the child Jesus.

The Catholic Church — despite the festival’s commercialization for decades now — maintains that Ati-Atihan remains, and should remain, a eremite festival.

And so, when a Mr. and Miss Bikini Open was held in and with the festivities, Fr. Joesel Quan cried ‘foul.’ He bemoaned the clothes of the contestants.

However, a immature tabernacle child close to Fr. Quan, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Adobo Chronicles that the genuine reason the clergyman was endangered and unhappy was since the selected bikini attires of the contestants were not ‘revealing enough.’

”Father was so looking brazen to the event, and even volunteered to be a judge.  But when all was pronounced and done, he was not happy and instead publicly complained about the impropriety of the extra-curricular event.
