Bohol backtrack: Loboc Bridge - A monumental folly

Tutubi's comment on Baclayon prompted me to post this as an afterthought. The back story was that officials during the time of Marcosian rule aimed at building a bridge crossing the Loboc River to impress the strongman. The folly was that to complete the bridge, the centuries-old Loboc Church has to give way. Construction came to a complete halt with the 1986 People's Power revolt, as "divine" intervention stopped what public outcry cannot.
