Conrado de Quiros and Christ

From "'Losers'" by Conrado de Quiros (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 8 March 2007):

"'T---na, tapang lang 'yan" ["Christ, all it takes is heart"].
The quote above is from a column on senatorial bets who are not expected to win. I don't know whether de Quiros himself provided the translation, but equating a word that needs to be bleeped out with "Christ" seems to be just plain wrong. And I'm not even thinking about this in religious terms. What's ironic is that the column ends with a reference to Christ's apostles.
