7 bishops lead anti-RH march; Tagle calls for unity

By , , |


CHURCH POWER Bishops, priests and seminarians lock arms as they march to the House of Representatives on Wednesday to watch the vote on the reproductive health (RH) bill. The march was led by bishops, priests and anti-RH lawmakers. MARIANNE BERMUDEZ

Under the afternoon sun, a number of bishops marched on the House of Representatives with other red-clad opponents of the reproductive health (RH) bill and came face to face with the measure’s purple-clad supporters who were camping out at the south gate of the Batasang Pambansa.

The opponents of the RH bill, holding each other’s hands, had to march a few more meters to the north gate at the other end of the compound.

“Pass the RH bill,” the pro-RH group shouted in Filipino as opponents of the bill filed past them while holding hands and singing “Ave Maria.”

The prelates who joined the march were Archbishop Ramon Arguelles and Bishops Teodoro Bacani, Broderick Pabillo, Jesse Mercado, Honesto Ongtioco, Romulo de la Cruz, Gabriel Reyes and Msgr. Clemente Ignacio.

With them were Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, Palawan Rep. Dennis Socrates, Quirino Rep. Dakila Cua and Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles.

The bill provides that the State will prioritize the needs of marginalized households when it comes to providing reproductive healthcare services and devices.

Before the march of thousands to the Batasang Pambansa complex, a Mass was held at noon yesterday at the St. Peter Parish church on Commonwealth Avenue.

Height of insult

Some 20 prelates led the Mass, which was attended by 22 anti-RH bill representatives and celebrated by Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes, chairman of the Episcopal Commission on Family and Life.

The church was packed with supporters all clad in red and sporting round stickers marked “Pass no bill” across the letters RH.

Msgr. Joselito Asis, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines secretary general, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the Mass was to ask for the intercession of the Virgin Mary on whose feast day the congressional vote for the RH bill fell.

“We need her intercession to totally scrap the bill. We do not agree with the measure. We have to give a chance to the unborn,” he said.

Asis quoted Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Quevedo, who sent him a text message which said that Blessed Pope John Paul II had declared Dec. 12 the feast day of our Lady of Guadalupe. The text read, “It would be the height of insult to our Catholic faith to approve RH bill on this day of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

In his homily, Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles described the vote in the House as a “great battle.”

Praying for the Lady of Guadalupe’s intercession, the prelate said, “Great are the forces [set] loose to destroy our Filipino culture, eliminate our race from the face of the earth and destroy our religion.”

Pork barrel

He asked the faithful gathered in the church to pray hard for the country’s leaders. “Let us pray hard for our President and ask him, ‘Mr. President please do not dangle the pork barrel before our representatives.”

The prelate likewise addressed lawmakers and said: “My dear legislators, especially those who are not here today, we pray for you. Please do not sell your souls for P280 million. You are worth more than that. Your eternity is at stake and the eternity of so many others.”

He further said, “Dear legislators please do not legislate what is immoral … Do not say the fetus is not yet a human being … They are people. They are body and soul …. Do not be Herods.” The archbishop was referring to King Herod, who in Matthew’s Gospel, had innocent babies slaughtered.

At the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Makati City, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle urged lawmakers to listen to their bishops on the RH bill, saying Church prelates were speaking out of their duty as shepherds of their flock.

Tagle also appealed to all sides—Church people, lawmakers and the Aquino administration—not to let the heated debates on the RH bill cause hatred and irreparable divisions in the country.

 

Tagle’s homily

“We are speaking because we are also seeking the common good as pastors and as citizens. Our voices are the voices of spirituality and morality,” Tagle said in his homily during a Mass

Tagle said the bishops were admittedly not experts on economics, sociology or finance but they would like to contribute to the national dialogue on the RH bill by speaking about its spiritual or moral aspects.

“We are not pretending to be economists or sociologists. We are pastors of our flock. We want to contribu te to the spiritual and moral aspect of this very complicated issue,” Tagle said.

“I’m also appealing to everyone—Congress, the Senate, the administration, Church people—I know this has been a hotly debated issue and the discussions have really become emotional. Tagos na tagos sa puso at buto,” Tagle said.

“But I’m asking that as we stand by our beliefs, let us not lose our respect and love for each other … (for) decency, respect and above all charity. Whatever is the outcome, if we lose respect and love (for each other), we will remain wounded,” he said.

“That’s why I’m asking everyone to let love rule our hearts as we stand firm in our convictions and principles. To stand by one’s principles does not mean losing trust on those who hold different views,” he added.

    CBCP Sec Gen Msgr. Joselito Asis: “We have to give a chance to the unborn.”

    Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle: “Our voices are the voices of spirituality and morality.”

    REALLY?!?!?!

    The church claims it speaks for the unborn. I hardly see anything they do for those born.
    If the church is the voice of morality, how come its schools (Ateneo, La Salle, San Beda, Assumption, Holy Spirit, etc. you name it…) cater mostly for the rich and the moneyed?

    Where is the “morality” of putting a tag price for administering sacraments, and socialize charges (first class, second class, third class) for baptism, wedding, blessing of the dead?

    Where is the church’s morality in protecting its own prelates who are involved in phedophilia, sexual abuse on sacristans and extramarital sex, and using church collections for personal (not religious related) use?

    What has the priests got to do with the use of condoms unless they too are its regular users? What has the church got to do with politics when they too are its regular recipients of bribes from politicians?

    Stop the empty talk. Re-start anew. Live by excample. Give to Ceasar what is for Ceasar. But if you enjoy feeling the pain of Brutus’ knife…go ahead.

    • lucidlynx

      Ang hindi alam ni Tagle na ang laws don’t have to be moral or spiritual. Dapat lang ang laws ay makatarungan para sa lahat. Akala ko ba matalino itong si Tagle.

        ang “katarungan para sa lahat” ay isa sa pinakaunang kahayagan ng kung ano ang ispirituwal at moral sa lipunan..!!

    When it comes to these issues, protection of life and sanctity of marriage, the Church is very consistent on her stand. If you make a mockery out of this, the Church will endure with all these difficulties. This is nothing compared to the series of persecutions she suffered during the first 4 centuries of existence.              “Nay, we make progress by means of reverses; our griefs areour consolations; we lose Stephen to gain Paul, and Matthias replaces thetraitor Judas…”  Source: Church History by Laux, p 609

He is truly controlling the three branches of govt and nobody is saying something. Hindi dahil popular, tama, hindi dahil maraming supporters tama.

    I can sense Cardinal Tagle’s stand from his homily. With the powerful CBCP, the Cardinal’s spokesperson, I know, was showing keen diplomacy.

    In fact, I donot see any mandate from Vatican to oppose the RH Bill. I believe it is a conscience discernment and for that we ahve Fr Bernas as proof, or he would have been rendered heretical or made to shut up.

    Cardinal Tagle is showing intelligence and tact. We do have a blessing in both Tagle and Aquino and for that I am very happy for the Philppines.

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      I do have enough love for these people not to hate them for their choice. I just wish they offer a better or at least, logical argument against RH.

    Being called Damasos, was the very reason why the Roman Catholic Church had strongly opposed the teaching of Jose Rizal’s writings back then. Damaso represents the very evil and corrupt ways of the Church. Damasos of then are exactly the same to the Damasos of today. They may look different on the physical appearance, but their ways are strikingly alike. And as long as they keep on flirting and meddling with our political ways, I will always call them as such….PADRE DAMASO.

It is one of the ten most biologically megadiverse countires and is at or near the top in terms of biodiversity per unit area. Our beautiful islands are the envy of the world we are surrounded by soft white & pearly black beaches. Most of the mountainous islands are covered in tropical rainforest and volcanic in origin. The Apo Reef is the country’s largest contiguous coral reef system and the second-largest in the world. The Philippines has a tropical maritime climate and is usually hot and humid. There are three seasons: the hot dry season or summer the rainy season ; and the cool dry season . The perfect climate system in the Philippines makes its air and atmosphere free from man made pollution after the system of storms cleansed the territory during rainy season & disinfecting the land by exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays in hot dry season. This is the best country in world to live in if the insurgency problem caused by poverty is solved by the tapping of the nation’s resource thereby freeing the people from poverty.. Located within the Pacific Rim of Fire, the Philippine archipelago is hypothesized as having been formed 43 million years ago. Its 7,109 islands rest on top of underwater mountains formed by the outpourings of molten rocks from the earth’s interior, thus creating an ideal setting for mineral deposition. (After Wolfe, J.A., “Origin of the Philippines by Accumulation of Allochthons” in The Philippine Geologist July- September 1983 Issue, p.17) In the archipelago, resurgent volcanoes particularly provided access for rising gold-bearing solutions which cool to the geotherm of 300 degrees Celsius at about 400 m depth. At this point, the gold began to precipitate and epithermal gold deposits were formed over geologic time of 1.5 million years from the present time. (After Wolfe, J. A., in International Mineral Development Sourcebook, 1993)

    HUMAN resource..

    .we are the ONLY Country in the world ..who speaks 175 languages & dialects with literacy rate of 93.4% . Most speak fluent & write foreign languge like english , spanish,nihongo,arabic, mandarin,hindi, & malay than country of origin..some elderly can still speak latin…Average Filipino can at least speak 3 foreign language & 2 dialects..while the rest of the world can speak only english & their native tounge…the people are educated, fun loving, resilient, hospitable & industrious… in fact , currently the economy is heavily reliant on remittances which surpass foreign direct investment as a source of foreign currency. Therefore the more population more benefit for the economy. The Philippines need a HUGE population & Army if it intends to tap the resources otherwise foreign invasion can easily land on its shores & control can be had without a sweat.…as of now we are ALREADY NO.1 as BPO in the world, & our OFWS are loved by their employers..BPo is contributing $12 billion & OFWs are contributing $21 billion a year..that is why we have a FC reserve of $82 billion ang its GROWING HANDSOMELY…without them (OFW & BPO)….our ECONOMY should have collapsed already..our .POPULATION is the BACKBONE of the economy NOT the NOYNOYING & CREDIT GRABBING govt…When we begin to tap our resources we will recall ALL our OFWs & those who migrated to HELP build the country as the wealthest & strongest nation on earth…we need huge population to attain this dream & endeavor.

    MINERAL resource…..

    Initial Lode and placer GOLD DEPOSITS occur in most of the 73 out of 83 provinces in the Philippines.The ten provinces were not properly tested yet due to internal conflicts & war. The 1996 $2.1TRILLION value resource ( govt ) estimate based on conservative 10% ( $21 trillion total estimate ) maybe deficient and could double to $42 trillion or more of the actual resource.. . … such amount could catapult this country to first world status .. we could even buy americas $16 Trillion debt..Also, we have .$26.3-Trillion Oil Reserves ..Country’s Untapped Deposits Mostly In Spratlys Philippines News Agency April 25, 2012, MANILA, Philippines- The Philippines is “sitting on a mountain of gold,” with untapped hydrocarbon deposits estimated at $26.3 trillion, mostly found in the disputed Spratly chain of islands, more than enough to free the country from the shackles of poverty.Also if we are able to claim SABAH… It has the potential to produce 1 million barrels of oil a day,” “The estimated reserves from the present Sabah oilfields is 1.4 billion barrels of oil and 7.7 trillion scf of gas.” …Malaysia govt does not even give our sabahan brothers share of their on wealth ONLY PETRONAS ( govt corp ) which give sabah a PITIFUL royalty of 5%…That amount is even without considering the UNQUANTIFIABLE value today (maybe thousands of $ trillion ) of the resources that can be found in our new territory called the BENHAM rise a 250km wide domain which is perceived to contain very huge oil & gas deposits & the envy of world for we are the proud owner of the vast DEUTERIUM deposits with a 868 mile long find in Philippine trench. With these resources properly tapped we are bigger than america & arabia combined.. : .yet many potential mineral & natural reserves are still HIDDEN n our archpelago…

    BENHAM RISE new Philippine territory 250 km wide –GMA LEGACY!

    Despite its proximity to the archipelago, the plateau was previously not included in the territory of the Philippine Islands. On 8 April 2009 ( GMA govt. filed the claim to UN now we owned it.. eventually our history & after the political vendettas ….legislature might rename the benham rise to GMA rise to give honor to its finder/claimant .. ), the Republic of the Philippines lodged a partial territorial waters claim with the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf in relation to the continental shelf in the region of Benham Rise. The UN has officially approved the claim in April 2012. The Philippines may soon be able to provide its own energy through Benham Rise, an underwater ridge to the east of Luzon which is believed to have mineral and gas deposits. The Philippines claim over Benham Rise is “very relevant” because scientific surveys indicate minerals and natural gas in the area. Solidified methane was found during mapping activities and the “probability is very high” there are oil deposits. There may be more natural gas than oil, and is considered better because it is cleaner. Benham Rise, which is bigger than Luzon, Samar, and Leyte combined, is being claimed solely by the Philippines

    GREATEST of them ALL- “ DEUTERIUM the Gift of Nature “-MARCOS LEGACY…!

    in ADDITION to the LEGACY of marcos like malampaya & other gas & oil fields…DEUTERIUM marcos legacy is the BEST …“ the Philippines trench has the LARGEST DEPOSIT of deuterium with 868 mile long 52 mile wide “If we allow production even for just a portion of this natural deposit… the Philippines will already become a first world country.. what more if we produce a quarter of it… Deuterium has several commercial and scientific uses today. It has become much more than the heavy water many countries sought after during World War II.Deuterium, a form of concentrated hydrogen, is used in the production of natural gas now utilized in Canada, America, Germany and Sweden, to provide fuel for cars, trucks , jet planes, & deuterium fuel for fusion reactors.”Deuterium can replace gasoline, (liquefied petroleum gas), (liquefied natural gas), Avgas, etc. in powering all types of internal combustion engines including maybe SPACE ships of the future & can be use in space explorations…. It does not emit pollutants or any harmful carbon monoxide and does not cause any environmental problems because it is in the water family. We can build electric nuclear plants in the middle of the URBAN cities of the world ! we will power & feed the world at the same time.Just imagine the philippines at the forefront of human evolution, science , technology & space exploration.The GOOD news is we have UNLIMITED deposit of it…it is self replenishing..!

    WE NEED HUGE POPULATION to DEFEND & PROTECT these resources.. this is not a sotto or church argument…

    this is for LOVE of COUNTRY….NO to RH Bill..!!!

    Question here. Why do we need to support ANTI-RH BILL? After reading HOUSE BILL NO. 5043
    I find no problem, as far as my understanding. In fact, the bill concentrates in helping people be productive. The only section in the bill that we have been tangled isSEC.  16.  Ideal  Family  Size. –  The  State  shall  assist  couples,  parents  andindividuals to achieve their desired family size within the context of responsible parenthoodfor sustainable development and encourage them to have two children as the ideal familysize. Attaining the ideal family size is neither mandatory nor compulsory. No punitive actionshall be imposed on parents having more than two children.I think we don’t have problem with this one because we are not controlled on our family ideal family size.Sooner or later, I think this bill will be approved but one thing keeps questioning me. Why does catholic does not support RH Bill? Follow me on twitter @chamberlainvii:twitter 

    • bundee

       Good Question.  You are a thinking brain.  The position of the Catholic Church has not been presented coherently and clearly across the masses and had been twisted by the born-against and ill-intentioned souls. Generally, there are good sections of the Bill which jibe with the Catholic principles.  But the methods might not. One principle is “The end does not justify the means.”

        why some catholic church leaders do not support the RH bill ? Simple Andrew – the bigger the population, the bigger the collection. According to some prelates, it is a matter of survival for the church. How true – with less people going to church, the lesser the income of the priests. So let us have more children and save the church from extinction

    This bill is set to destroy families? Families are already being destroyed because of poverty and their miserable condition. Young people are engaging in early parenthood, teen pregnancies, abortion, because of lack of guidance from their ignorant parents, not to mention the risk of STDs.

    Wag po kayong magbulag bulagan. Our society is corrupted because of poor morals stemming from poverty.

      What about the proponent of RH bill? Engaging in immorality….by having extended families…..yun ba yung tama? Families will be destroyed…yes. The only reason why people will have STDs is because of engaging sex with partners other than the wife. So enjoy our sex life now and have many partners as we want without fear of being punished by god for the immoral act? Thanks to RH Bill for that. People don’t learn a thing about the past……before, god created STDs to give us lesson to respect the righteousness and then we found the cure and continue with our evil ways. Then he gave us AIDS and now we are trying to find the cure and continue again our evil ways. The only antidote to this is simple….be loyal to your wife and your family. People are still competing with GOD, and we try to find ways to justify our means, disguising our evil intent and fabricating lies against the truth.

    You know why the Bishops seem to have lost influence? It was because of lack of consistency. Now, they are calling for congressment not to sell their souls for pork barrel, when they were so quiet while their very own fellow bishops were then forging pact with the devil for much lower amount of a montero, courtesy of GMA. It is sad that the Bishops and other members of the clergy who remain faithful to the calling – and there are still many – are being rendered less effective by the hardly noble actuations of their fellow religious.

    Priest who had sex with boys now tells how to smuggle ivory

    National Geographic‘s new issue exposes the ivory business, which has been hiding in plain sight since a worldwide trade ban was enacted in 1989. And a major player in the magazine’s story is a priest in the Philippines whom I wrote about in 2005 when investigating another global-trafficking phenomenon — the Catholic Church’s movement of sexual abuse suspects across international borders to escape justice.

    The priest, Monsignor Cristobal Garcia, is now quoted as explaining how to smuggle ivory into the United States: “Wrap it in old, stinky underwear and pour ketchup on it.” And if an icon won’t fit in a suitcase? Here’s how National Geographic‘s Bryan Christy summarizes Garcia’s advice: “I might get a certificate from the National Museum of the Philippines declaring my image to be antique, or I could get a carver to issue a paper declaring it to be imitation or alter the carving date to before the ivory ban.”

    Garcia also made provocative comments when I interviewed him about why he fled the U.S. in 1985. He admitted having sex with altar boys and supplying them with drugs

    Isa sa pinakamalaking nagmamay-ari ng lupa sa Pilipinas ay ang CBCP na yata, (kung di man pinakamalaki, ) pero di pa ako nakarining man o nakabasa na nagbigay cla kahit man lang isang metro quadrado sa mga urban poor ng libre. Doon kung saan kami dati binili ang lupa (sa isang nangangailangang mamayan)  KUNWARI gawing sementero daw, dahil pari naniwala, kuya mura talaga. E sinong local gov’t ba naman ang papayag magkakaroon ng sementryo with 6kms radius sa downtown. Kaya ginawang paaralan. Sa isa naman donated ng tao, pinatituluhan, ginawa ring paaralan. Kaya dapat mag-ingat talaga ang mga Pope sa pag appoint ng kung sino-sino gawing de rangong pari,., dahil dami ng demonyong nakapasok sa simbahang.

    Yesterdays results showed that the Catholic vote is a myth. Napahiya mga pari. Just because they went to congress to demand their anti-RH STAND, did not mean the congressmen were going to let them bully their way in. In fact, I think the congressmen were irked that the priests and bishops tried to throw their weight around ng wala sa ayos and that backfired on the antiRH people. The congressmen showed that it was their turf and no one can dictate them bishop or no bishop.

    the way these bishops behave I’m beginning to get truly incensed.
    These prelates bamboozled its flock to get down on its knees and pray.
    But despite the summoning of the heavenly attention what happened? The
    bill got passed on 2nd reading. The 3rd and last reading is just a
    formality to complete the legislative mesh. What I’m concerned about is
    the way prayers are used vainly. When a typhoon approaches communities
    are herded to the altar and just the same, towns got flattened in no
    time. Now the RH bill, despite the thinning of the rosary beads and
    litany of prayers the bill got through the legislative mill. Now, can these bishops blame why people are having second thoughts on the efficacy of prayers?

    Let’s all face the fact, the Catholic Church has failed to Cathecize the Filipino nation, as to how one must righteously live through the eyes of our Lord.

    Its’ now a battle of population that must be remmedied the soonest time possible, as it has greatfully affected our society, this law is just a remedy or cure to the current problem that have gone out of control from which the bishops doesnt greatly acknowledge. it’s a battle that they have lost, but may i say to our dear Bishops, this is one mere battle, the next can still be won, only if you will focus more on cathecizing and by bringing the people back to the church. maybe the catholic church can be more creative and not just stay by the old way and be content with it, the lord gave us the gifts of wisdom and knowledge, maybe it’s about time to become more creative to entice the people back to the church.

    This is merely a Wake-up Call.

    Maybe its about time that our dear priests, start going to our public schools and start Catechizing.

    You have a long battle ahead of you, it’s time to get out of your comfort zones and start getting out there where the real battle could be won.

Sana  dadami pa ang mga  influential people  na makialam sa  policy making body natin para  mga bills  ma fully and comprehensively studied and passed. We hope  that same zeal will be given to many other important bills such as sin tax bill,  and that these people and more people  will  present alternative solutions/bills and  lobby to congress what good social justice/social services legislation   tulad ng pagreporma  sa health system, solution sa squatters, poverty, corruption and INNEFICIENCY sa sytem natin. May mga bagay na we need to focus too tulad ng health which can be given solution like use the  reduce govt consultants, city and town councilors and SK chairmen, under/assistant secretaries, and  use the savings for   health programs.   Can  have a law reducing  municipal and city councilors,  under and assistant secretaries and consultants and divert the salary/funds   for doctors and nurses?  Can we regulate pork barrel para focus ang legislators in crafting good laws   and their decision could not be unduly influenced?  Kailan may funding and peoples representatives sa mga councils  and bid committees? How will the people exercise  peoples initiative if there is no funding and they are not even aware of it? May the Church controlled ad owned prestigious schools   come up with best legislation  for Congress to adopt or  through peoples initiative?  Church leaders and their allies,  as Filipino citizens, like all of us,  can present  alternative bills, or propose to amend laws and lobby for  or against a bill. All of us can do, we can  march to Congress. Sana lang  bigyan din na pansin ang ibang importanteng bagay  like health nga at   pork barrel , at lahat na nakasira sa sistema natin. They can lobby for funding for peoples initiative . They can request prestigious school owned by the church to craft good laws. The state, the media and the church, have great power and great responsibility (right? spider man?).

    well.. this is another reason why the catholic church in the philippines is losing members. the only concern of the church officials is for their flocks not to diminish furthermore; it’s money that members contribute that they are after. many priests do not have compassion for the poor. thay become priests so they will have comfortable life. they aim to be rich. they are more of a sinner than many of their flocks.
    the catholic church has become a very powerful force that even the politicians cowered and would not go against her, for fear of losing votes. the result is that the country is the only catholic nation without a divorce law. even italy, spain and rome have divorce law. filipinos are forced to live on denial; couples who are not in love anymore and who are bickering and physically & psychologically hurting each other are still living under the same roof, albeit separate beds. it is the ‘ hipocrito’ trait of the filipinos handed down by the bloody spaniards.
    i may not see our country free from the shackles of the obtrusive church and the psyche of the hated colonizers.

    Frustrated men in pajamas. Sucks to be a priest. Brotherhood of pedophiles, never worked in their lives, real men with real problems don’t respect them, denying themselves the grace of being  married to someone tangible instead they say they are married to God. How weird and demented is that concept. I wonder if God knows he is married to millions of priests and nuns. Feel sorry for God.  What if he wanted a divorce from such lunatics. It’s unnatural to be a priest. They have sick and demented view of reality. Strange men in pajamas.

    Cruz said there was a knockdown but not a knockout and “That means a good number of our lawmakers still have a good conscience and conviction,” he added.
     
     
    …and so, congressmen will and should follow what is really being asked of by their conscience.not because of the presence of the people wearing robes..give JUSTICE, EQUAL treatment to the POOR by giving them information, as rich people knows this and even used condoms in their affairs and services only available to those with money.. to plan their family and help them to level the playing field…… by passing the RH bill. The 50,000 people who attended the rally is just a drop of water in a bucket of 100 million people and with almost 50% to 70% living in poverty line and rising….

    This is not about religion, nor abortion which is not RH but the QUALITY of life of most Filipinos who have no means to get any services but just pray to God that they should not get pregnant from last night fling with someone or their husband, this is is about the future of the next generation…..its about time we implement family planning. It is not easy to raise a child, add two its still fine, but more than 4 and higher when you can`t afford to give a descent life for each kid will condemn them to a life of poverty and being dependent on others for alms… and it is not fair at all to raise them in poverty due to ignorance and unprotected sex by their parents who will have to do a back breaking work just to make ends meet of their large family for their moments of desire and worse become an OFW breaking even more the close knit of the family, damaging kids for life due to lack of guidance from either parents. Someday, these children will rebel one way or another against their parents, against the government or church and even the society as a whole and question why do they have to eat once or twice only a day in order that the whole family will be able to eat…no brainer for their parents and government who needs to implement RH..and those who are anti RH probably their lives are comfortable enough already….and failed to see the consequences of too many children by a farmer or just a street sweeper`s meager income. Give these poor people a break do not decide how to run their lives to give them a fighting chance to survive in this era of climate change and the technicality of living in the future….

    Pass the RH bill and succeed in giving each child the life we do not want them to suffer from…and that is poverty.

    Separation of church and State and this is one of the best examples of why.  Thank you bishops for showing us that you do not care about the people, just yourself.  And don’t say God made you do it.

    Why are the Catholic bishops so threatened by the passage of the RH bill? Is it because there are so many non-practicing Catholics in the country who no longer listen to them? The Catholic clergy should spend their time and resources educating and influencing their flock rather than meddling in national politics. Need the Catholic Church be reminded that we are no longer living in medieval times, and separation between Church and State now exists? Why has the Catholic Church become so insecure? 

    • Jane Tan

      It is against their outdated beliefs. And, if allowed to pass, will show the world that the CBCP in the Philippines does not control the government.

    By marching and participating in an anti-RH rally…, 
    WHAT has these Bishops proven…?

    It just show that their prayers were overshadowed by the prayers of the pro-RH.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MJFXCRSCXRWPLL42QQKSINC3AQ Mamerto

    The Catholic Church is not insecure, nor
    should it be reminded that the ‘middle ages’ are long gone.

    These points should be brought up with the bishops…,
    and not to the Catholic Church.

    may nakita na ba kayong feeding program ng mga church para sa mga gutom na bata? o kinanlong man lang pag may kalamidad? nakapadlock ang church sa ganyang pagkakataon. TAMA NA SA QUANTITY, QUALITY OF LIFE NAMAN ANG DAPAT PAGTUUNAN NG PANSIN. gamitin naman natin ang utak natin hindi puro pakinig ng sermon nila na wala nang logic. DOG EAT DOG NA ANG BUHAY DITO SA ATIN, SUBHUMAN CONDITION NA ANG IBA, OK PA DIN MANGANAK NG MADAMI, pwe! 

    OK lang sa mga corrupt politician, kahit 70 ang anak, madali lang sa kanila ang pera.

      Your statement is a blatant ignorance on the charitable missions of the catholic church.  Try mo naman mag research bago ka magpahayag. I-research mo ang mga charitable missions ng Catholic Church, i.e Mother Theresa and many more. Kung gusto mo ng local, i-research mo kung ano ang nagawa ng Catholic Church during the flash flood of Ormoc in 1991. Nagtayo ng village ang RCC ng libre for all victims regardless of what religion the recipient belong. Also in Guinsaugon landslide at marami pang iba. Worldwide yan.

      The eyes can’t see where the mind is closed.

         ” i-research mo kung ano ang nagawa ng Catholic Church during the flash flood of Ormoc in 1991″

        Nag search ako at mukhang totoo naman sinabi mo. Pero mukha din n yung 1991 charitable mission ang huli nilang nagawa. hahaha

      • mhertz

        kc yun lang din ang sine-search mo..haha

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/JJQWTLMZH3NNIE2IJ46AOZAXAE Hannah Blake

        ok give me a link kung marunong ka. Syempre keyword sa search ay “Charitable missions of the church in the philippines” di ba?

      • mhertz

        most likely each parishes have outreach program, you can go and check what are their outreach program. You can also check with Archdiocese official websites like rcamdotorg/charitable-institutions,cebuarchdiocesedotorg/directory/orphanages-homes/. Gawad Kalinga etc… So there are also charitable institutions which are carried out by different Catholic organizations and have a priest as adviser example of this is Couples for Christ-Gawad Kalinga..You can also search List of Catholic Charities in the Philippines.

        Paki share naman ang grupo nyo about your charitable missions.

    mabuhay ang mga anti-Catholics!!! bayaan nio di natutulog ang Diyos..di naman yan sili na aanghang agad….On the other hand , in  liberated countries sex becomes casual with multiple sexual partners maybe because of ready availability of contraception, abortion and no commitment too. And  there is a  divorce anyway it will just depend on who will take advantage or  dis-advantage.  But it is more fun in the Philippines cause contraceptives will be provided by the government for free. Sex lovers will have a feast everyday. Sorry for us taxpayers we will obliged to pay for your pleasures. Next time booze and others that could make you irresponsible but pleasureable will be free by the government. Vote for them in the election.
