Bishop accuses Aquino of ‘bribing’ Congress

By |


Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes

Dis the President make an offer lawmakers could not refuse?

A Catholic bishop on Tuesday practically accused President Aquino of “bribing” members of the House of Representatives to vote in favor of the reproductive health (RH) bill.

Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes said he personally knew of five lawmakers who consistently voted against the bill but changed their position after Malacañang threatened to withhold their pork barrel.

“P-Noy (Pres. Aquino) says if there’s no poor, there will be no corrupt (but) if you force a congressman to change his principle, his conscience for pork barrel, government projects, political favors, it’s like you are already bribing the congressmen,” Reyes said at a Church forum in Intramuros, Manila.

“Isn’t that corruption?” said Reyes, chairman of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP)-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life.

He said he was “convinced” that the bill would have lost on second reading if not for Malacañang’s intervention.

“The heavy-hitters were there—DILG, and DBM, so it really wasn’t a conscience vote,’ he said, referring to the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Department of Budget and Management.

Reyes said one of the five lawmakers, whom he refused to name, even asked for forgiveness because of the difficult situation he was in.

“I know of five who always voted ‘no’ but they were called by their party and they voted  ‘yes.’ They would have lost their pork barrel and government projects,” the bishop said.

“One of them said, ‘Bishop, sorry but if I don’t follow our party, I will lose the projects for my province. And he was not alone. There were others,” he added.

Reyes said the CBCP would support moves by Catholic lawyers to challenge the bill in the Supreme Court once it was signed into law.

“I know of a group of lawyers who plan to appeal this to the Supreme Court because it is against the Constitution. It is against religious freedom. One provision of the Constitution says the government should protect the family and, I think, also to protect marriage,” he said.

    A.) He likely doesn’t have proof, so this is libel.  He should be thankful that the Administration probably isn’t going to be suing priests, due to politics.

    B.) He’s complaining about Administration representatives being there when half the gallery was full of priests and bishops, and they’d been talking for ages about a ‘Catholic Vote’?

    There, in a nutshell, are the anti-RH lot’s two favorite tactics: lies and hypocrisy.

    The catholic clergy in many countries have been found guilty of molesting minors and pedophilia. It is a certainty this is rampant in pinas. Pnoy should start looking at the closet for skeletons.

  • lastofdmohicans

    I was saying it’s TIME FOR CBCP TO REFORM, TO SHED ITS PADRE DAMASO alter ego.

    Only in the Philippines does a religious group – with history of tyranny on their hands – insist on intruding on secular / government affairs.  Complete with matching THREATS, SUPERSTITION AND TRAPO behavior.

    Instead of focusing on their job which is to shepherd their flock – including helping them make the appropriate choice based on their faith – Padre Damaso likes to play and dabble in politics.

    Pasensya na po pero….What a big FAIL FATHER!

  • Winzum Daoas

    President Aquino may have a lot of flaws but he certainly does not have one where he bribes lawmakers. In fact, it is the Catholic church that has that sort of attitude. If they call a certification bribery, then the Catholic bishops have certainly lost their senses. These Catholic bishops have a backward mentality. We are  no longer in the middle ages. The people have more senses and discovered science. Roman Catholicism is no longer a supreme truth for the people, it is a faith.Bishops accuse without proof and then paint their enemies like criminals if they don’t get their way. But if they are accused even with undeniable proof, they won’t accept it and accuse people of being biased.

    So ?
    Does that they have been bribed by President Aquino ?
    Not because you wear that robe that you can say anything you want Mr. Reyes.
    You, too, as a citizen, are obliged to follows the law of the land.
    Before you lose your flock, take your hands off secular matters.
    You have cuddled corrupt politicians for too long. Now that an honest president wields power, he is corrupt just becuase he disagrees with your ideas. Ideas which have condemned many Filipinos to poverty for so long ? The Catholic Church is losing grip of its power. Especially so that Muslim clerics are now working hard to help develop Mindanao. A highly developed Mindanao will only prove that the Catholic Church is the reason the Philippines is poor. The Church has tolerated and participated in corruption for far too many years. The Church will look the other way as long the corrupt politicians donate part of their loot to the Church. Pharisees !

    • mabyrik

      These bishops are running out of ideas and sadly, out of control.

      When GMA pampered them with SUV’s, bribery and whatever funds coming from the government coffers, they hailed GMA as the best president ever and can do no wrong. 

      They even condoned the cheating of GMA during the 2004 election by announcing to the whole world that “everyone cheats anyway”, and effectively proclaiming that henceforth, cheating is not a sin anymore because everybody does it anyway.

      Bishops, GMA was korrap and you allow yourselves to be the pawn of corruption and for that, you too are deemed korrupt. GMA korrupted you for her own good and up to this day, you keep quiet. Apparently and secretly you are wishing that she goes back again as the president of this country, and this time, for your own good. 

      You never said anything bad about GMA, the most unpopular president ever with -20% trust ratings and everything bad about Pnoy, an honest president that  even Suarez, a top oppositionist in congress saluted pnoy for having stayed clean 3 years into his term and still enjoying an 80% approval rating from his bosses.

      Pnoy is doing his job because he is listening to the voice of the people. The people, the doctors, the economists, those who really care for the upliftment of this nation wanted RH and he obeys them. Pnoy has no alternative except to obey them. Doing otherwise is unacceptable.

      And for you to charge pnoy of bribery even without proof is the most irresponsible statement of a man(?) of cloth. It is downright dis gusting and disappointing to hear those words from a bishop. It’s like saying that obliging the people of what they want is now a crime.   

      Bishops, what is happening to sense and sensibility of the church, is it gone forever?

    • morale_reform

      I thought only Politicians are bitter losers (during election), even Bishop din pala.  As a catholic, it pains me to hear words such as this from a high ranking church official…

    PNOY will commit a massacre of the innocents by signing the RH bill into law. those who are using and who will use contraceptives have committed/will commit spiritual suicide. hell exist. it is more real. we try to avoid, flee, escape from poverty and pain here in this
    world to satisfy the flesh. to sacrifice the innocents more than ourselves. for instant gratification without responsibility. without love. we have corrupted everything, even love, because of selfishness. we say we love our neighbor by limiting their children because they do not know any better. we are hypocrites. we are bringing them to hell for eternity. and that is eternally more painful where no one can escape. Majority of us pinoy’s, 80% so called Catholics, rejoiced with the passage of the RH bill into law. the only Catholic country in
    Asia. it is now complete. all the continents have a law on its land legalizing either use of contraceptives, abortion and same sex marriage in less than a decade.  

    for pnoy:  before you decide to run for the presidency, you went into a convent to reflect.  now, more than ever, is the time for a deep reflection.  pray the Rosary as our beloved ninoy and cory did.. to reflect back on the Faith your mother and father has given you. i am so sorry to mention them.  i really do.  i know this will be hard.  but before signing the bill into law, please think for a moment if they would sign it if they are in your position right now.   if yes, then by all means, sign it.  if not, will signing the bill into law give them honor, or disgrace.  your call.

    is their god fake?

    • joshmale2004

      Other religious groups are being guided by the Holy spirit in prayers that’s why they are leaving it to God to emanate His Will. For the CBCP, they are trying to impose their personal will in the name of God (Pinangungunahan na nila Diyos instead na alamin muna nila kagustuhan ng Diyos).

    With all the vast resources of the Catholic Church no priest ever committed that he will feed, cloth, educate and shelter all the homeless street children and unwanted babies. These priests can even afford to have more than 1 air conditioned car/suv. I hope they’ll show more compassion to the unfortunate children.

  • noypisiTED

    Look who is talking? Aren’t the bishops the ones threatening the legislators and PNoy for pushing the passage of RH bill on the curse of heaven? The best thing for this bishop to do is zip his mouth and learn from the Filipino wisdom that “it’s better to keep silent and be thought stupid than talk and proves everyone right.” The way this bishop keep opening his mouth we’re beginning to believe the wisdom very well fits him.

    nobody asked me, but….is the good bishop and his cohorts really determined to go to court?  or he is just running out of options.  now (h)e is to engage in frivolous lawsuit and in some sort of insinuating and gerrymandering accusation that the administration bribes the 5 lawmakers that cast their votes in favor of the RH.

    the bishop finally show his colors.  and (h)e and the church is now actually challenging the state on how to run its affairs.

    what really the bishop is thinking? did the vatican made him do the unthinkable to openly challenge the state on how to conduct its affairs? 

    what a slippery slope bishop reyes is about to engage.

    If the Bishop has proof that there were bribes involved he should show this to the public.
    If not, should just close his mouth and remain silent.
    If he cannot prove his allegations it´s just an allegation. The same like when someone is telling a story he heard from “the cousin of his labandera”.

    Not even the President can make any Representative lose his or her pork barrel. The worst the Executive can do is to delay release citing paperwork and procedure.

      And yes, there was pressure, but there was clearly pressure from the Church as well, so criticizing the Administration for that would be utter hypocrisy (something, granted, that the CBCP has never had problems with in the past).

  • PutingAgila

    For the CBCP, funnel your heavenly conscience into ensuring pork barrels received by the “five congressmen” will be properly dispensed for public good. If funds are squandered, prove it and you win people’s support. If it’s the other way around, too bad for you because constituents will definitely cling to their congressman. You feel emboldened by how many Catholics we have in this country, but you miserably fail to realize that your flock is an enlightened member of a modern-day society.           

  • MelorisV

    These “Catholic Taliban’s” (Bishops and Priest) would do anything (lie, cheat, spread rumors, bribe, coerce, threaten, etc.) just to discredit the supporters and authors of the RH bill or anything that go against their whims. And they call themselves “Men of God” and I thought those were sins and against the teaching of the Bible. Pathetic! Now I know why many RC loses faith and find solace from other congregations (born again, protestant, INC, ADD, etc.) They are fed up with the lies and abuse of the Bishops and Priest of the RCC.

    Never taste of the fruit, never thought to question “Why?”

    Who did this to you, you never thought to question “Why?”

    I am a Catholic and I have no plan to change religion. I support however this reproductive health law because I don’t believe it goes against my beliefs and second because it is a great step towards bringing down our zooming population growth. The very impoverished uneducated parents in our country raise as many as five children on the average but earning income sufficient to sustain only two people. 

    We have to put a stop to this predicament. Our government will not be able to collect enough revenues, however hard it tax  our people and cut down corruption,to put up enough classrooms, hospitals, roads, and other infrastructures. Unless population growth is brought down to zero and economic growth runs consistently high in years to come, the lives of the majority of Filipinos will be at third world miserable level in eternity.

    The bishops and the entire Catholic hierarchy will have to get out of their bubble to see that their teachings are a little off with reality and unless they change they may wake up one day with their parishioners both active and passive significantly reduced.

    ‘ Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes said he personally knew of five lawmakers
    who consistently voted against the bill but changed their position after
    Malacañang threatened to withhold their pork barrel.’

    This says a lot!!!! about the company the bishop keeps.  They are ‘buy able’.  The implication is that congressmen have their prices. An explicit admission ‘buy’ a man of the cloth. If this is true, congress should be burned at the stakes. Don’t you think CBCP? But then again, the pork barrel is the whole reason for their being, no more no less.

    The arrogant intolerance of the Catholic Church is sickening.  Their pathetic posturings to somehow say that they are the voices of God, that they represent everything that is good in our society is downright embarrassing because no matter how they want to hide it their moral decadence is evident.  For truth be told, the Catholic Church aids and abets criminal by coddling pedophile and thieving priests and bishops.

    I personally believe the late cardinal SIN left a very bad legacy which current crops of bishops and church clergy seemed  to have inculcated in their culture.  Shamelessness, arrogance, meddling and threats have become their tools in pushing their advocacy.  I hope there will come a time when the catholic church will finally see the light and leave governance to government and for them to do what GOD expect them to be doing instead.

    Sore Loser! What a pity for these priests and bishops who couldn’t accept the truth that that their influence is now dwindling. Using his claim of knowing 5 congressmen who consistently voted against the RH bill but wondered why they have changed their stand – it would follow that a sinner could no longer repent and be saved. Conversely, a good person has no way of becoming a sinner. Further using this argument, we may now safely assumed that those bishops and priests who callously and unashamedly asked for SUVs and other forms of largesse from corrupt politicians and the gambling lords, are still doing it now. This priests and bishops were so used to talking in the pulpit unchallenged, that they talk about things they aren’t academically-trained and professionally-experienced to do and still assume they shouldn’t be challenged.

    Am also paging the relatives and close friends of the bishop to give him the favor of being informed what his unbridled mouth has wrought so that he would at least rethink his position on the issue and or stop accusing leaders who are the choice of the people – millions of people. It may well be remembered that there’s a saying that says “Vox populi, Vox Dei.” The voice of the people – who elected these officials, is the voice of GOD. By the way, has the bishop similar proof that he was the choice of the people? Just asking.

    A) Stop reporting on the opinion of the Church because in doing so would create further confusion amongst the public. The church has no right in our political system as we voted our politicians into office and not some pope in Italy, and

    B) Not to publicise the opinions of an unfounded, theoretical and biased conclusion created by a priest

    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

    The Catholic sex abuse cases are a series of convictions, trials and investigations into allegations of child sexual abuse Crimes committed by Catholic priests and members of Roman Catholic orders against children as young as 3 years old with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14.

    Kaya maraming mga Pinoy na umaalis sa Catholic Church ay dahil sa mga paring tulad nito. Dito sa U.S., ang mga Paring Katoliko ay laging nakadimanda because of what they did 10 or 15 years ago. They are the so called pedophiles who sexually abused young boys and had been exposed on the papers. There are about 7 Catholic Priests who were convicted and had to pay a lot of money for their evil ways against these young boys. Mga dimonyo ang mga paring katolikong ito dahil sila ang nagsasamantala sa mga batang lalaki lalo na at mga sakristan ito nung araw. Do a Google Search about Priest pedophiles and you will find this out.  No wonder, the Catholic religion has steadily been losing members. They are the only religious sect against the RH bill while the rest of the sects are in favor. Sila ang mga Padre Damaso na isinuka ni Dr. Jose Rizal nung panahon ng kastila at isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit nagalsa si Bonifacio at Aguinaldo.

    THE CAUSE OF CORRUPTION IN CATHOLIC COUNTRIES
    It is a fact that religion has played an important role in the formation of a country. This is absolutely true in Catholic countries; undeniably, the common denominator of all corrupt and impoverished countries is religion [in general] and Catholicism [in particular].
    Is there really a relationship between corruption and the Catholic Church? The answer is YES, actual situation speaks for itself.
    Before the decree on separation of church and state, the colonies dominated by Spain [which was the Pope's sattelite] were controlled by the Catholic Church. During these historical time, the colonies were managed in accordance with the Catholic systems.
    Now, what are these Catholic systems which are still prevailing until this modern time?
    1. Briberies and all forms of corruptions that could be traced back to the giving of something to the church in the guise of donation for purposes of facilitating the givers’ request to the saints.
    2. The giving of donations in exchange for a divine intervention or any favor; this is a form of bribery clothe with another terminology. This is a clear pattern of corruption.
    3. The pardons for sale and indulgences which still occur in another form until these days.
    4. The hypocrisy and shrewdness which could be traced back to the time of bishops and priests covering their evil acts behind the curtains of secrecy.
    The holy appearance with a divine posture is their only hiding wall from the real self – this hypocrisy is still an effective tool of corruption to evade from public suspicion. This instance is still prevailing until now may it  be in religion or politics, the main point is that it was inherited from the Catholic system.

Or, is it perhaps  that Bishop Reyes is a true practitioner of the ” do what Isay but not what I do” ? Bishop Reyes as well the other leaders of the church must avoid vilifying Pres. Aquino, they must  set the example and act with greater humility than those of their humble followers. They should start wondering why they are losing many of their followers.

    As a line of a popular song goes: “It’s a sin to tell a lie.” I don’t think the P-Noy administration will ever do that.

  • JoseMiguelCasuarino

    … expecting that RH bill not passed as expected by the Catholic Church…is it not also against religious freedom??? to impose a Catholic Church stance is dictatorial,  Bishop Reyes.

  • bgcorg

    Bishop Reyes narrated facts, as he experienced them.  We should not doubt his testimony, for in fact, Pnoy first told the Congressmen to “vote according to conscience.” There were other Congressmen whose votes were not counted because they purposely left in order not to vote due to party pressure. Mar Roxas, Butch Abad and Carandang were there and there was a tally made of those who voted yes or no.  Mar Roxas was overheard to say, who else to persuade to go in order not to cast his vote, as he became worried the “antis” are catching up.  Then Pnoy certified the bill as an urgent administration bill, knowing that if Congressmen voted “according to conscience” the bill would lose.  Clearly, there is bribery, corruption and coercion here.  And, of what use to the country is a separate bill to suppress population growth when the real and genuine problem is one of poverty and corruption?  Poverty cannot be overcome by artificial contraception, despite the international campaign for it. It can only open up more problems, only because some would like to be behaving like “some other” country! Poverty can directly be overcome by helping constituents develop to their full potentials as human beings, in a climate of equal opportunities and a just social order.  Information and choice cannot solely come from adoption of a culture of death.  Responsibility comes with a greater natural awareness of what ought to be done when poverty is directly addressed, not by providing an artificial  smokescreen against the inability to focus and prioritize what truly is needed for uplifting the very poor to a better quality of life.

    It is disheartening to hear so much bias by those who should know better than criticize like media people.  An ABS-CBN anchor complained over radio about a Catholic Bishop commenting on giving a Christmas forlough to ex-president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, saying in effect why should a bishop be commenting on it.  Fortunately, she corrected herself later, not by affirming the right of the bishop to say what he wanted to say, but by commenting that the ex-president is already weak and sickly and deserves a forlough. Life, and its preservation, is important for the Church.  I think you would think so also.  Blessed John Paul II thinks so too.  Our Constitution and its framers think so too.

Sabi pa nya it was not a conscience vote dahil the heavy hitters were around – the DILG, and DBM.  He said the Bill would have lost kung hindi nakialam ang Malacanang.

    Teka,  yung mga congressmen na bumabaliktad at mga walang prinsipio, nagbabago ng boto dahil sa suhol do not deserve any sympathy from the Bishop.   What is the bishop trying to project na kawawa naman itong mga taong ito, human lang sila at na pressure?  

    Unsolicited advice lang bishop Reyes ….. STAY AWAY from these types of people.  Wala kang maaasahan sa mga taong hindi marunong maninindigan sa mga paniwala nila.  And please stop blaming malacanang for their change of minds ……. mga ganyan talaga yan …. to the highest bidder.

      The Catholic Church was the same before, today and tomorrow.  Since Catholicism was first introduced to the Philippines by the Spaniards with cross on one hand and sword on the other hand, she has always been meddling in the state affairs.  In fact, Dr. Jose Rizal was executed because of his political views against the Catholic Church’s abuses.

    I am an evangelical Christian (protestant) and I am for RH Bill. 
    The problem with the leaders of the Catholicism in this country is that they are highly very politicized (read: receiving political favors from the government of GMA), and now they claim to represent “The Church”?  
    Biblically speaking, the head of the church is Jesus Christ (1 Colossians 18) and the Body of Christ represents all true Christian believers. I believe that the issue of RH Bill boils down to the definition of where life begins.I believe that life begins at conception. Unborn babies, at whatever stage of pregnancy, should be preserved and protected. Termination of this life is sinful and offensive to God,Our government is within its power through public health policy to offer married couples various birth control methods that are non-abortive in nature so they can decide more wisely what is best for them. It should be emphasized that preventing pregnancy or conception is not abortion for no life was conceived and there is nothing to be terminated.

  • joshmale2004

    It is biased for the church to say that the decisive victory of the RH Bill in the 3rd reading is caused by Malacanang. If bishops can presume these things, I also have the right to presume that the 104 no votes on 2nd reading was due to the presence of Bishops who were writing the names of solons who are voting yes. Due to this pressure that the NO votes gathered 104. But in terms of conviction, I am sure many of those solons who voted no can be presumed “NAPILITAN LANG DAHIL SA PRESENCE NG MGA PARI”. This was more evident when the 3rd reading came. Almost 1/3 of the congressmen who voted NO in the 2nd reading opted to absent themselves to avoid the wrath of the bishops. They know that yes will win even without their yes votes so the best way is to go absent.

  • joshmale2004

    The Catholic Church is hell bent on creating trouble on the RH Bill and Pnoy. Now they are threatening supporters of RH Bill come election time. Sotto doing everything to block enactment of the Bill. Enrile having personal fight with Miriam, proponent of RH Bill, Mitos Magsaysay openly  supporting the Church’s position, Erap (known playboy in early years) very silent on RH Bill, Binay not siding nor commenting on RH Bill, Son of Enrile voting yes to balance the political clout of Enrile. What is the significance of these events and personalities mentioned? It seems UNA and the CBCP have already forged an alliance for the 2013 election.

    With an issue this divisive, I think it would be better to put it to a vote. Why not have a plebiscite on the RH bill?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/EDUH7A744QYTM4DOOCM3AC5CVQ Robert Martin

        panong divisive? napaka overwhelming ng mga surveys, online discussions, social media, forums, media discussions, everywhere you go, they are inclined to support it. even mga comments here agree.

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         We have a lot of bills that pass congress that do not have this much publicity but has enormous impact on our country’s economy and public policy. Social media will be social media but are we sure their opinions are not just riding the trend? On these medium, people want attention or notoriety. Why not back up to your tweets/post by voting.

        It is just in my humble opinion that a plebiscite will end the arguments claiming that both sides have the majority. Let us give this law an opportunity to succeed. Like AER mentioned, we are a democracy and majority wins. A plebiscite will decisively show who has the majority.

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         We allot printing cost for the numerous party-list groups on the ballot. Why can’t we spare 2 more boxes for “YES” or “NO”? If there really is a consensus on the RH bill, then we need not worry a thing. We do need however to give this law a chance to succeed. The opposing block needs to hear the voice of all voting Filipinos, not just that of the social media.

    • Don Dee

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         My replies are not getting posted. Anyway, why take away the voice of all those concerned? If the surveys are correct then I do not think the bill will lose in a plebiscite. By having a plebiscite, the bill can be supported by actual numbers. Those oppose the bill can no longer use excuses or any argument on the issue. Rather than argue that suggestions similar to mine are coming from the Anti-RH bill, why can’t you give suggestions to end the discussion. The bill passed, but the losing group do not feel that there is a majority consensus. If we just let it be like this, then the law will not be given a chance to succeed.

      • Don Dee

        How much does a plebiscite cost? You want a special election or just ride it with the scheduled election? I-reprint ulet natin mga balota? Church willing to shoulder that cost?

        Now, do you really think that a plebiscite campaign (for and anti) will make this a less contentious issue? And look, it is not as if the RH bill is going to force you to use condoms, you are still FREE to not use if that is against your beliefs. So I don’t see why that offends the Catholics so much. Ayaw nyo mag condom, e di HUWAG! But please, make it available for the people who want it (and can’t afford it).

  • AER84

    In the first place the bill is not divisive. The polls show that Filipinos overwhelmingly support the bill. It is the small minority of small minded people who are very vocally against the bill. So why bother wasting money on a plebiscite on a bill that is very well supported by Filipinos – that is what democracy is all about – the rule of the majority.

    • joshmale2004

      correct.

    • JKG_HSA_VOSA

      Then there is nothing to worry for the RH bill supporters? The bill passed in Congress. Why not let everyone who cares on the issue place their vote? What’s the harm? If we can add lines and boxes for the Party-list section, why can’t the government add a “YES” or “NO” choice on the ballot? On the polls that you mentioned, what’s the size of the sample? Is it really that big to consider it a majority? I haven’t been asked for my vote, my wife was not also asked. I know no one in my family that was approached on the issue, (otherwise I would have seen it in their facebook/twitter entries). So is my entire clan not part of the Filipinos who needed to be polled? With all due respects to your opinion, I still do think it is divisive otherwise it would not have been this controversial.

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

        Are you reading my comments correctly? I think you are under the impression that I am against the law. I think the Filipinos should tell the Anti-RH group that they support the law. How do you tell them that? It is in my opinion that it can be done by voting for the RH Bill/Law. A majority decision (if not overwhelming) would help the success of this law.

      • AER84

        I’ve already said the plebiscite would just be an enormous waste of money when we all know – check all the polls – Pulse Asia, Social Weather Station, Yahoo, FB, etc. all show – that Filipinos would overwhelmingly support the RH Bill. You can go to their sites and check their statistical methodology. So no harm but why waste money on something which the Philippines can ill afford. Other people who have commented herein point out that – your senator and congressman are your duly elected representatives who do vote on your behalf. If you don’t like how he/she voted then don’t vote for him/her in this up coming election. (disclaimer: I am one of the majority) In this next election I will not vote for anyone who voted against the RH bill. FYI – I wasn’t polled by anyone either.

        Not up on my Aralin Panlipunan but I do know a lot about USA democratic practices – which is basically what the Philippines copied. A plebiscite is normally held for anything that would change the constitution. In drafting a law – that conforms with the constitution there is no need to conduct one. You and your clan will just have to raise your complaints with your Senator or Congressman. If you feel this RH bill violates the constitution then take the route of the whacko guy from Cagayan de Oro and raise your objections to the Supreme Court – citing whatever part you feel is unconstitutional. Good luck on that.

      If there is any congressman or senator not being given his pork as allocated in their GAA, then they should be man and honorable enough to speak in public that they were not given pork instead of going to the bishops and the bishops being suckers for rumor immediately take it as the truth. In the first place, if there is any truth on this pork blackmail, those who were blackmailed has to be named so they themselves can confirm. The problem with the bishops, they are accusing Pnoy but withhold the names of these congressmen who were blackmailed. If they want to expose the truth, why do they remain anonymous? The bishops can not name names because they themselves are propagating lies about this blackmail but they can not support their claims with real people to corroborate them.

      • ArmchairGeek

        Bago pa man itong RH bill, alam naman natin ang stand ng Palasyo sa pork. Si presidente mismo nagsabi na may ilang mga kongresista na hindi nya bibigyan ng pork allocation. Kung hindi kayo aware doon, malamang ignorante ka.

      • joshmale2004

Pnoy does not withhold the pork unless you are certified corrupt like Mikey Arroyo, Mitos Magsaysay, Augusto Syjuco and Gloria Arroyo.

    If the bishops keep on interfering with the government or legislature functions, maybe its time to make the Catholic church a political entity and start getting taxes from it. I hope the bishops realize that it is not the governments role to make the young people stick to the right principles but theirs. It is a reflection of the religion’s failure if the young people’s actions don’t follow the right ideals of the church.

    Don Dee / Diablo_III / Robert Martin (having a hard time posting it against your replies)

    Then there is nothing to worry for the RH bill supporters?
    The bill passed in Congress. Why not let everyone who cares on the issue place
    their vote? What’s the harm? If we can add lines and boxes for the Party-list
    section, why can’t the government add a “YES” or “NO”
    choice on the ballot? On the polls that you mentioned, what’s the size of the
    sample? Is it really that big to consider it a majority? I haven’t been asked
    for my vote, my wife was not also asked. I know no one in my family that was
    approached on the issue, (otherwise I would have seen it in their
    facebook/twitter entries). So is my entire clan not part of the Filipinos who
    needed to be polled? With all due respects to your opinion, I still do think it
    is divisive otherwise it would not have been this controversial.

    By the way, I never mentioned that I was against the RH Bill. I think conducting a plebiscite would finally close all arguments and give everyone a voice on the issue.

    • TOMA_NA

      First off, the RH Bill will become part of the law of the land therefore irrelevant na yang plebiscite na yan.And assuming lang naman at kinailangan pagbotohan yan, kailangan mag initiate ng tinatawag na People’s Initiative, kung saan kailangan mangalap ng conveenor neto ng signatures ng at least 10% of total voting population and 3% ng kada district para lang ma consider ng Comelec for deliberation. Hindi pa automatically approved yan kumbaga, dadaan sa butas ng karayom…this is the same problem nung mga nagsusulong nung anti-dynasty campaign.

      Anong divisive divisive ang pinag sasabi nyo? Just move on na lang, grow up people!! para kayong mga bata

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         your first paragraph is informative, thank you. But your second is unnecessary. Do we always need to insult people’s ideas? The losing side still has not accepted the decision of congress. How do you expect this law to succeed if the minority still believe they speak for majority of the Filipinos? What lasting solution can you offer, aside from unnecessary comments?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/EDUH7A744QYTM4DOOCM3AC5CVQ Robert Martin

        yeah, JKG_HSA_VOSA, you’re right. that is really unnecessary comment. Pero bakit ok lng sa yo yung pang iinsulto na ginagawa sa ibang comments dito na mga anti-RH bill. mas masasahol at mas mapanakit na salita pa mga ginagamit nila. kung tutuusin, malamya pa nga yung insults nya. it’s not that I agree with TOMA_NA in doing that. it’s just that you are selective when it comes to things you want to accept and want to believe.maybe that could explain why people like you is having hard time understanding what has just happened last monday. masyado sarado ang isip nyo sa mga bagay na di ayon sa sa opinion nyo. even if it is the overwhelming majority.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/EDUH7A744QYTM4DOOCM3AC5CVQ Robert Martin

      so every time there’s a bill, we would need to go through plebiscite? for example, the kasambahay bill? the naming of a major national road? kaya nga we have senate and congress who take care of law making d ba? you think that’s practical? it’s not an issue of whether it’s divisive or not. that is the reason why you never heard of that suggestion even from the church or the solons who oppose it. because they know it is stupid!!!

      so please, think before you comment.

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         the last plebiscite was in the mid1980’s. Was there one between then and now? Where there no laws passed since the mid1980’s? When there is conflict between morals, faith, values and science I really feel everyone should be given a voice. So maybe your last sentence should also apply to you as well.

        If it is your opinion that the voice of everyone concerned is secondary to cost and social media comments, then I respect your position. Like I said in earlier posts, I want this law to succeed. If we can print lines for the party-list name on the ballot why not add a line for a “YES” or “NO” choice there. I think the COMELEC, by disallowing some of the party-list groups to run, have more than adequate vacant lines on the ballot.

      • TOMA_NA

        Again, irrelevant na yang plebiscite na yan. It won’t push through no matter what your rationale is. If there was any voting referring to it since 1980’s until now is no longer relevant nor important. Magiging Law of the Land na ang RH Bill, tapos ang usapan ;)

      • Cherry_Bee

        the reason why we have elections is so that we elect people who reflect our policy preferences. Kung gusto mo, huwag mo iboto yung mga bumoto taliwas sa mga kagustuhan mo. That’s the whole theory behind legislation, representation and fixed electoral cycles because we cannot have plebiscites for every policy decision. For one, it is expensive. Second and more importantly, COMELEC cannot just add “yes” or “no” sa balota dahil kasya na sa papel. Kung gusto mo mag plebiscite sa issue na ito at kahit ano pang panukalang batas, mag-draft ka muna ng sarili mong Bill at tingnan mo kung makasampa ka ayon sa rules on people’s initiatives.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JEMNLLYAP5EA7SM3A6QUOGV62Q Chris

      That’s why we elected “Representatives” to represent ourselves and avoid the costly plebiscite.

    • Don Dee

      Why not do away with the entire congress, heck even the executive! Kelangan bang mag declare ng state of calamity nationwide dahil sa Typhoon Pablo? Let’s have a plebiscite! Kelangan ng bagong classroom sa Payatas? Plebiscite! Dapat ba natin i-condemn ang Chinese intrusion sa Scarborough? Plebiscite! Let’s plebiscite everything and stop electing representatives. Why? Because loser always want to change the rules when it does not suit them. Pag natalo sa proseso nakatakda, mag pro-propose ng bagong contest. Give it up. Your Sen Tito Escalera is doing a good enough job Filibustering this bill. Your proposition is nothing more than more of the same. Do not believe me? Mag plebiscite tayo dito.

  • Manolo Villareal

    Catholic church officials seem to be in a quicksand.  Their every move makes them sink deeper down the muddy soil.  Earlier in the 2nd reading they said they can manage to muster enough votes to tip the balance.  In the 3rd reading, their 104 became 79.  They better just be silent and advocate their opposition to women thru their homilies.  Even with or without RH Bill, they can advise women to take an option not to use contraceptives or condoms.  They better stop the misinformation campaign that RH bill is legalizing abortion.

  • ever green

    Pork barrel is irrelevant IF the congressmen are men of principle in the first place.

    “I know of a group of lawyers who plan to appeal this to the Supreme Court because it is against the Constitution. It is against religious freedom. One provision of the Constitution says the government should protect the family and, I think, also to protect marriage,” he said.   ——–

    Marami ang bumoto sa RH panalo na ito, congratulation sa inyong lahat but in the end who wins is not important but the result will be the Philippines which can be measured after 10 years 20 years growth in population. I admired those who voted No for they stand their grounds and showed how faithful they are, same to those who voted Yes who stand with their principles and wishes for the land. At the end of the day we are all Filipinoes who showed love to the country, kahit masakit na bintang binato natin sa ating kapwa na nagpapatunay na tayoy concern at naghahanap ng tamang adhikain at ikabubuti ng Pilipinas.

    ako against din ako and i am just one vote kung sakali, pero ngayong panalo na ang RH ay wala rin akong magagawa kundi tanggapin. Pero pananaw lang, ang bill na ito ay isang mungkahi lamang ng gobyerno para sakaling maibsan daw ang bilis ng pagdami ng populasyon at mabawasan ang kahirapan sa Pilipinas. Sana nga matupad ito at yun naman ang kagustuhan ng lahat na sanay walang naghihirap, dangan lamang na nasaling nito ang prinsipyo ng mga katoliko. Ngayon kung totoo nga ba na 80% ay katoliko  at nandyan pa ang matinding paghusga ng mga pari sa contraceptives, sino sa palagay ninyo ang panalo at malalaman natin yan 2,3 dekada sa ngayon.  ibang bansa siguro nagtagumpay sila dahil sila ay komunista , china isa lang ang anak ang pinatupad nila sa bawat magasawa,  natupad yon kasi may karampatang parusa, at ang magulang ay pwedeng ikulong. sa atin naman ay isang suggestion lamang ng gubyerno, sumunod ka hindi okay lang, di kanaman makukulong pag sumuway ka.

    Tingnan natin sa practical na bagay, unwanted pregnancies  bakit nabuo?, dahil sa kapusukan ng kabataan. illigitimate children because of irresponsible father who run away with his obligation? teen mothers ranging from  14 to 17 years old are flourishing everywhere, is it due to lack of proper good guidance? born child being left behind anywhere else, is it because of poverty.  So many question? at gumamit ba sila ng contraceptives ? Malamang hindi!

    Never the less, life will still evolve as it was and the world will not change it course.

    Dis the President make an offer lawmakers could not refuse?

    To think ill will to another person, is a sin…..and so they are also corrupting their own mind and worse….infecting their followers to be fatalistic. Corruption can be subtle including those coming from people who is said to be popish…

    Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

    Does the word “subdue” mean God is pro-RH bill?  Just curiously asking…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JEMNLLYAP5EA7SM3A6QUOGV62Q Chris

      “be fruitful and increase in number” – responsibly.

      • gets_mo

        Exactly.  That’s what I think.  Subdue = Control.  By this token, the CBCP and the anti-RH people are disobeying the word of God.

    • AgnosticLeader

      and that’s one of the reason why i don’t believe in your god. if ever i will believe in a god, it won’t be the god in the bible. that god is an incompetent idiot.

      • gets_mo

        To be an agnostic is the beginning of wisdom.  When you start to believe, it will be true and lasting. 

      • AgnosticLeader

        actually, it’s the opposite. the term “agnostic” comes from two root words, “a” (means without) and “gnosis” (means knowledge), thus it means without the knowledge of a god. the term was coined by thomas huxley, one of the most vocal advocates of biological evolution during charles darwin’s time. like many atheists and agnostics, i was once a believer. but i learned to trust science and human reason more than the scripture of incoherent ramblings of some bronze-age middle-eastern goat herders. 

      • gets_mo

        I hear you.  Anybody who tries to prove the existence of God through some scriptures will convince only the ignorant and alienate people like you.  There must be some way to explain God without quoting the Bible or some other religious texts. If I remember right, Alan Watts showed how in one of his books.

  • pedronimo

    PORK VS PULPIT

    The good bishop is right to say that the Church has no pork to dangle, What he does say is the Church has thousands of puLpits from where anti-RH Bill sermons are regularly unleashed. They are called “Homilies” to what the faithful bow and say Amen.

    When the Church finds time to meddle in government affairs and neglects its responsibility to its flock, isn’t that a form of corruption, too? They have bastardized Christ’s teachings to the point of twisting it to serve their carnal needs. Christ never interfered with the government of his day and in fact made it clear that God’s business is not Ceasar’s business. Today’s Church is run by buffoons matched only by the clowns in the senate.

      But these are the new and modern CBCP (Catholic Bishops Corrupt Practices). That’s why their new motto is: “All governments should bow down to God thru CBCP.”

    • Malik62

      The bishops are not interferrng in the affairs of the state, they are making a moral stand. They find the RH Bill as immoral hence as shepherd of their flock, they have the obligation to protect their flock when they see that their flock is being threatened by a law that will not bring well-being but decay.

      • joerizal

        Moral stand on what? They should clean up their own backyard first. That’s where morality starts. Interfering in the affairs of the state is totally against the constitution and if they continue to do so, we should start taxing these bozos.

    This GMA ass-licker bishop is now accusing PNoy of bribing congressmen and lawmakers. This is why I am slowly losing faith in these so-called servants of God because they only serve themselves. I’m quite sure this is one of the bishops who benefited from the GMA doleouts of luxury cars. Now the good bishop has the temerity to come out of his pulpit and be political. The Catholic hierarchy should kick out these devils dressed up in priestly robes.

  • Malik62

    The battle line between the Catholic Church and BS Aquino X3’s administration has been drawn. In the incoming third year of BS presidency his popularity will surely go down, sans the “surveys” of SWS and Pulse Asia.  Popular presidents usually drop in popularity and trust rating on the third year of their term especially when they failed to deliver their election promises.  When that time comes BS will be vulnerable to destabailization plots and he will not have the Church on his side, thus making him more vulnerable.

    • joshmale2004

      Off course the church will not be on his side as the church will be the one spearheading the destabilization plots. But don’t count out other religions as their silence now does not mean the President do not have their trust.

    Luke 18:10-14

    10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
    11
    The Pharisee stood up and prayed about[a] himself: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector.
    12
    I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

    13
    “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to
    heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a
    sinner.’

    14
    “I tell you that this man, rather than the
    other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself
    will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

    The bishops are similar to the Pharisees described on this parable.

  • Vespa62

    Examples of prominent lawmakers who were anti-RH but who either changed their vote or did not vote at all were Rep.Golez and Marcoleta.

    Mar Roxas, Butch Abad and the LP are using the same coercive (or persuasive, if one prefers) methods which all presidents before him have used – the threat of withholding one’s pork barrel.  What is disappointing is that PNoy has not done or said anything to stop these two.

Nung si little girl, namigay sya ng envelope full of grass, grease or money para hwag bumoto sa impeachment ang mga naimbeta. Ginamit din ang pork barrel as leverage (sino ba naman ang hindi). Ngayon si PNoy ginagamit din ang pork barrel as leverage in the RH issue. What’s new, bishop? Masahol pa nga yung kay Lilliputian dahil mga sobre, wala yun sa batas. At least the pork barrel is mandated by law. Hilaw naman yung accusation mo Bishop.

    Once again our local clergymen go against what Pope Benedict says about associating with politics.

    “… she (the Church) does not identify with politicians or with partisan interests. Only by remaining independent can she teach the great criteria and inalienable values, guide consciences and offer a life choice that goes beyond the political sphere.” — Pope Benedict XVI

    Our local clergy are so insistent in meddling in politics in complete defiance to the words of the Pope. That’s probably why the Vatican never publicly support the CBCP throughout this entire issue.

    The current flock of head bishops are more concerned about furthering their own selfish political agendas.

    Perhaps it is time for Filipino Catholics to ask the Vatican to replace these Politico-Bishops with those who would spend less time talking to the press, and more time talking to their parishioners.

    The CBCP has lost sight of it’s true purpose.

    • opinyonlangpo

      I agree. They are not just defying the pope, they defy and use God as well.

        ahh yes, edsa. the religious fanatic’s “go-to answer” whenever the cbcp is criticized about political meddling.

        I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’re not under Martial Law anymore.

        do you see tanks rolling down highways?
        do you see soldiers forcibly taking citizens under orders from the president?
        have you heard any newspapers or TV stations being closed down by the army?

        Martial law was a dark time in our history. A lot of people lost their lives during that time.
        Out of respect, stop using the memory of edsa to justify your lame argument.

        I don’t see the bishops standing up to tanks or soldiers,
        I see these senile old men going up against poor mothers who only asks for the right to plan their families.

        I see celibate men in skirts imposing rules on couples about how they should be intimate with each other.

        Non-elected sectarian leaders, imposing their own religious beliefs instead of respecting individual rights.

        I see a bishop politicizing a typhoon tragedy that killed 700 people, and calling it a “message from God” about the rh bill.

        I see princely priests enjoying the most revered places in gatherings, riding in Pajeros and SUV’s, while telling their parishioners that Jesus loves the poor.

        I see a president being threatened with excommunication by a group of old men, whom no one elected.

        At kung nananalo yung ANTI sa botohan, eh will of God yun. Pero dahil PRO ang nanalo, abay nagkadayan.

        I have a deep respect for all religions, it is these politico-priests who continue to embarrass the RCC by meddling in partisan politics, in complete defiance to the instructions of Pope Benedict.

  • jaws378

    Unless the bishops can come up with logical arguments against the RH bill, it would be difficult for them to attract support for their cause. They cannot win support for their stand if they will just base their arguments on threats and accusations without clear and convincing evidence.

    Well I’ve really no idea, might be, could be, possible, probable as well but that is hardly the issue, we all know that dangling cash in front of a Congressman we can make him dance any tune, the raison d’être of any Congressman is well known, he is there to feather his nest during his limited term, his ‘15 minutes of fame’- no big surprise there.

        not married??
        no experience raising own kids??

        the same can be said about every priest, bishop and cardinal whose taken the vow of celibacy. 

        by your “logic” that disqualifies them to object to the RH Bill.

        in any case we’ve already won

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AH7MNEFRF4G4ZQ6PA2OE4Z3BEU Verlito

        The Catholic church does not reject nor object the RH bill in its entirety but only the provision that involve artificial contraceptives. Personally, I believe that those who are strongly involve in its passage had already hidden agenda  in mind which is short of obtaining financial gratifications.

        no, i don’t know what you mean? can you tell the difference?

      • buttones

        Yes I think I know what you mean but if I have never had influenza, experienced it, then I really don’t know what is like… As a woman, for example, I have never had a child, so I cannot deem to know what the real experience is of having one and bringing up that child, I can read all the books I can find but they will not teach me the emotions that are involved- that was my point.

        same response.  your answer again: Yes I think I know what you mean but if I have never had influenza, experienced it, then I really don’t know what is like… As a woman, for example, I have never had a child, so I cannot deem to know what the real experience is of having one and bringing up that child, I can read all the books I can find but they will not teach me the emotions that are involved- that was my point.

    Aquino says if theres no poor, there will be no corrupt. but the number of poor are increasing now more than ever. that only means one thing…

    • AlexanderAmproz

      May I beg your pardon, but he said the exact opposite,

      ” if no corruption, no more poor ”

      Its quiet different and I believe in it

      • Adam_d_langgam

        Ows, since there are tons of poor people, if follows that there is still corruption, right? Following your line of reasoning buddy.

      • $20722540

        sabi niya kong walang corrupt, walang mahirap…eh masdumami ang mahirap, ibig sabihin mas maraming corrupt ngayon 

      • disqusted0fu

        its pretty much the same thing. and yes, i believe in it as well, but as far as it actually happening, i highly doubt. the number of poor people keeps on increasing, and based on that saying, it means corruption must also be increasing.

    This is the country of the Filipino people, of all Filipinos. Not the country of the Bishops, not the country of the Catholic Church, not the country of the vatican.
    You, as Bishops, can have your say about our politics as a private citizen, but not as a religious leader.
    Specially you do not have a right to interfere with our politics as a leader of a religious group.

       I remember a story that goes like this: There was this man that his pet dog died and wants his dog baptize before he’s going to bury her goes to a church and find  priest, the man said “Padre can you do some ritual I want her baptize so I can bury her, Padre Damaso said; my son we don’t do that one in here, tell you what, there is a protestant church in the corner there is no telling they will do something in that situation, the man retort with a question, Oh yea padre? Would they accept 50,000 pesos for those services? Padre Damaso said look surprise, holy mother Mary! you didn’t tell me that your dog is catholic.

    • AlexanderAmproz

      I remember when CBCP did a not acceptable scandalous statement, 

      “this is normal, anyway everybody is cheating” 

  • padjack

    Teka, hindi lang naman Catholic ang religion sa Pilipinas ah. Why would you take away their (other religions) right to be educated and have the choice to plan their family kung available naman sa kanila? Plus accdg sa RH bill you don’t have to participate if you don’t want to, so anong against sa religious freedom dun? Kahit mga workers are not required to pass out contraceptives or educate and whatnot if they feel like it’s against their religion. Even parents can opt out of sex education for their kids if they choose to. Nothing is being forced on anyone.

    “One of them said, ‘Bishop, sorry but if I don’t follow our party, I will lose the projects for my province. And he was not alone. There were others,” he added.

    maybe the outlawmaker meant – ‘i will lose the projects and my commissions”. commission, not conscience.

    It is as clear as the sun will rise tomorrow that there was bribery in Congress!

    And not less than the President of the Republic of the Philippines….

    what a shame…. Daang Matuwid nga!

    everybody copes with losing in different ways

    – some go to drink themselves blind
    – others rant in outrage

    in the case of this bishop, start spreading lies.

      anong lies?  you want proof…read and observed what they have done in congress…need i say more

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        umm… yes, that’s not proof at all. “read and observe?” anong klaseng supporting argument yan. kung may proof ka talaga, matagal mo nang nai-post

      • $20722540

        lintek we are not inside the court…read and observe yong mga sinabi ni abad (very bad) at roxas.  bakit ba ginagaya yong pangalan na Pope, hindi ka naman katoliko

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        this is a forum, we are in a court of public opinion.

        and your lack of evidence is out of order!

        at bakit mo ginagamit yung pangalang “goavan”,
        hindi naman ikaw ang may-ari ng Goan Overseas Association of Vancouver (G.O.A. Van)

      • $20722540

        ah!!! delaying tactic yan copycat!!!  who cares about your opinion.  malayong malayo ang ibig sabihin ng goavan kasi dalawang initials yan…nice try anyways 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        ahh you made so many post, and yet provide little to no evidence.

        all you have are conjectures, and baseless accusations.

        Reyes says he talked to five lawmakers, but refused to give names? Why? Bribery is a major offense, a clear violation of the separations of powers of government.

        Why does Reyes refuse to expose the President’s crimes, if he is so convinced of the guilt?

        Maybe because he really doesn’t have any evidence.

        Just like you don’t have any evidence, not even a link or quote from any credible source. Just insinuations.

        You got nothing.

      • $20722540

        kulit mo you don’t deserved your name. tanga ka lame brain pa!!! sino ang nagsabi ng lies, diba ikaw?  you are the one who was making accusations against the bishops which means that ikaw ang magprovide ng evidence.  ikaw satsat ng satsat, pati mga taga India sinama mo.  tama na magkakape pa ko!!! 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        ayan hindi nagbabasa

        nasa title na nga nung article

        “Bishop accuses Aquino of ‘bribing’ Congress

        I’m merely asking for any solid proof to this accusation.

        pero wala.

      • $20722540

        oh yeh!  you said the bishops were spreading lies?  while at the same time you were asking for proof that indeed there was bribery.  so were is your evidence that they were spreading lies?

         A  real proof of how corrupt politicians are in the Philippines are the never-ending repair of national roads. The roads which are supposed to last for at least 10 years before being repaired again will now lasted at least 12 months. There are a bunch of corrupt practices all over the country that needs to be reported. But since documented proofs are needed in order for the court to honor the complain, the Filipino citizenry needs a law such as an FOI bill. 

        However, our honorable legislators are very much highly disinterested of passing an FOI bill since this will endanger their position. Instead, they passed the Cybercrime law to protect their vested interests. What a clever moved indeed, trying to make all Filipinos look naive.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        naligaw ka ata?

        usapang bribery sa RH bill votes dito. yun ang accusation na hinihingan ng proof, hindi yung sa roads. Ibang topic yan.

        And for the record, the FOI bill has advanced further under this current administration than any other time in the past.

        It has more universal support now, than the RH bill. And it’s much closer now to being ratified, than the previous times.

        Magbasa ka kasi ng news, para current yung posts mo.

    RH Bill was passed into law by the legislators, meaning the argument presented by the bishops are not enough to sway the decision made by the legislators. We have to accept pro-RH Bill won and RH is now a law due for implementation.
