pork barrel

Bishop warns Roxas Church will make him pay in 2016

Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II’ presidential ambition in 2016 could be affected by his active role in pushing for the reproductive health (RH) bill, a Catholic bishop said Tuesday.

Bishop Gabriel Reyes, chairman of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, said Roxas was one of the administration officials who went to the House of Representatives to ensure that the RH bill was passed.

“The Church is not after political power but it has much influence. We use that influence for the growth of the country (but) Malcañang really fought the Church,” Reyes said at a Church forum in Intramuros, Manila.

“As for Mar, I think it will affect (his presidential ambition) … The Church has much moral influence on our people. Many still believe in the Church. In surveys, the Church has the highest credibility [than] the executive, legislature and judiciary,” Reyes added.

However, the bishop was quick to point out that Catholics should not be “single-issue” voters and should consider a candidate’s competence and incorruptibility.

“One could be anti-RH but he could also be a thief. It will be up to the voters to weigh a candidate’s track record and decide,” Reyes said.

Monsignor Joselito Asis, CBCP secretary general, said the Church was “not after political power” and was just trying to present a spiritual and moral case against the RH bill.

“We just want what is good for the common good. The Church has no pork barrel and no government projects. We can just use persuasion, appeals and so on,” Asis said.

“We are a democratic country. The power really lies with the people in selecting leaders. In this case, it was the legislators who decided,” he added.

What was expected to be a close vote on third reading turned out to be a landslide on Monday for Malacañang and House members pushing for House Bill No. 4244.

From a close vote of 113-104-3 on second reading, the result was an emphatic victory for the pro-RH bloc (133-79-7) on third and final reading.

That means that instead of gathering more votes, the anti-RH group lost a total of 25, mainly because many supporters did not show up.

Roxas, along with Budget Secretary Florencio Abad and Secretary Ricky Carandang, were back at the South Lounge on Monday night as House members were casting their votes on the RH bill.

“Our domain, which was the South Lounge, was again invaded,” Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “We did our best in pushing for amendments, but our best arguments could not marshal enough forces to frustrate the wishes of Malacañang.”

Zambales Rep. Milagros Magsaysay pointed out that Roxas and Abad were “in charge of releasing the pork barrel,” which is formally known as the priority development assistance fund.

“The Catholic Church has no pork barrel to dangle,” she said.

Speaker Feliciano Belmonte defended the presence of Roxas and company, saying that as former House members, “they have the right to be there.”

Belmonte noted that former Sen. Francisco Tatad, a known opponent of the RH bill, also showed up at the Batasan.

“He was also there and we also welcomed him. What he ate was also free, the same as everybody else,” he said.

    This means that church will support the corrupt Binay who wants to rule Makati and the country forever. What hypocrisy. Just because the non-corrupt Roxas is pro-RH, they will support the ultimate trapo who is using the money of Makati and the vice presidency to forward his designs on the presidency.

    All of you who will vote for Mar Roxas over the itim na maligno in 2016, vote for this comment. If the Damasos want the 2016 elections an extension of the RH fight, let’s crush them one more time by voting Roxas.

      If there was a referendum on RH bill and over 60% would be in favor of that measure, I can imagine even Socrates Villegas and Jose Palma would get silent.

    This is sad… church meddling in government affairs, are we still in hispanic period when church and “prayles” were above and more powerful than the government?? God gave us reasoning power and free will with the former over the latter although often it’s the opposite, lalo na pag gigil na and would just say “bahala na” that leads to children more than the parents can support and provide for. Responsible parenthood often results to irresponsible parenthood so it’s high time RH bill is passed and enforced…….

    This so-called bishop is suffering from a religious delusion of grandeur!!  He thinks there IS a Catholic vote.  He will be hopelessly disappointed… and disillusioned!

    In 1992, some of these Catholic bishops said Gen. Fidel Ramos, being a non-Catholic, will not win when he ran for president in 1992. Gen. Ramos won anyway, and the bishops had eggs on their collective faces!

  • Hey_Dudes

    I agree with many bloggers that time has come for congress of the Philippine to initiate process in which it can begin levying tax to churches in general, the catholic church in particular.  Obviously, in the recent weeks, bishops in the country have shown the caliber of their shamelessness – others demonstrating what a demon is capable off rather than being holy.

    These bishops are way out of control and threatening politicians of consequences due to issues dear to them have not been supported is almost bordering on threat to life.  Start taxing this church and anyone making threats should be made to taste life in jail.

    Pork Barrel?  Why did the Bishops not also attack GMA for using the pork barrel to bribe the Congress to block her impeachment?  Mar Roxas needs not be afraid of the Catholic Church.  If other congressmen and senators were not afraid of going against the Catholic Church as the next year’s election approached, why would Roxas?

  • otepau68

    The church is suppose to be apolitical. But look at its leaders, campaigning years ahead. Soon they will prophecies burning in hell for RH bill supporters. No wonder it is losing members & friends left & right. Their effort is better channeled to the assistance, guidance & recovery of those in the south in this much needed time. That would be ‘more christian”.

Rather that go after those who are trying to make the country  a better place to live for the majority of the filipinos.

  • boybakal

    Bishops are just speaking from the heart and spirit. I said so because the holy spirit is their guidance for truth.

      The Bishops and Priest would rather have a thief and womanizer and killer ( like Estrada, Enrile, Binay )to become the President of the Philippines rather than a decent person like Roxas and Pinoy. No wonder the philippines is screwed up.

    • RONNIE858

      RH Bill is just an option, its a tool that people may or may not follow dependeng on their discretion. Like taking pills, if you think its bad for you, then don’t take it. Think of other alternatives in place of pills. Di ka naman papayin kung dika mag pills eh.

  • mabyrik

    Because bishops have either short memory or just plain stu pid or both, they are now threatening Mar Roxas of losing in 2016 election.

    These bishops have totally forgotten that many years ago, they campaigned very aggressively against Flavier in senate and erap in presidency. Because these bishops campaign so hard against them, Flavier and erap won convincingly. Flavier was in the top 6 and was never in danger of losing while erap won by a landslide over de venecia, their candidate.

    That alone showed that the catholic vote is zilch, nada, zero, effect and no factor in the election.

    Today, with still 3.5 years away from the next presidential election, Binay is perceived to be the next president because he is the only person who opened-up. As VP, he also gets very high rating, just like GMA, de castro when they were VP. By tradition, VP always gets higher rating than the president. Binay, in due time will realize that he will not be up there all the time.

    Roxas stars will soar as the next election nears and inversely, binay will dive if roxas should play the game correctly. Villar found that out. He was leading the surveys by a mile over the other pretenders for years when, out of the blue, Pnoy’s name came from nowhere and like a shooting star, made the voters awed and villar was left scratching his head in disbelief.

    AS election nears, so many skeleton in binay’s closet will sneak out. He will have to answer questions on how he acquired billions during his +20 years as mayor of makati.
    Even if  Villar’s wealth was legally acquired through his businesses, and yet the people doubted it and he was rejected in the nick of time. On the other hand, Binay has a lot of explaining to do. Villar’s case was the lesson that binay has to solve this early.

    Roxas will definitely shame the bishops again in 2016, the same embarrassment the bishops has to endure while fighting hopelessly against RH.    

    It is my wish that the bishops to aggressively campaign against Roxas and to support Binay to ensure Roxas victory. Bishops’ support is like a kiss of death.

    After trying everything, they have now resorted to political threats. What’s next, esteemed bishops? Fire-and-Brimstone threats? Wouldn’t be surprising.

    All you phallic loving bishops and priests, it will serve you well to keep in mind that your “flock” is not mindless. They are no longer ignorant. Which means they will not listen to what you tell them to do, if they do not want to do it.

    So you can tell your flock NOT to vote for Roxas, or for anyone who doesn’t give you SUVs. By 2016, your mortal sin of exalting yourselves WAY above your own god would have caught up with you already, and you will lose all your worldly influence.

    Your reign of ignorance is almost over. Now go  f u c k  yourselves, while you still have the chance. Oh wait, you prefer little boys, I almost forgot…

  • lapasan

    What Bishop Reyes is doing is engaging in indirect partisan politics. Although it is right for church religious leaders to criticize government policies that involve moral issue, to imply that a certain candidate will pay for contradicting the church in a certain issue is a different story. The bishop is promoting a rift between those people who are anti and pro RH bill. The bishop should set a good example to the faithful by graciously accepting that RH bill is acceptable to the lawmakers and the people although that issue is not to the bishop’s liking. I believe that the Catholics has not diminished their faith. But this Bishop Reyes keeps on opening his mouth and makes this issue bigger.

    Our Catholic leaders are still stuck in Padre Damaso’s time.   While the country is wallowing in filth and poverty because of corruption, it is also because of runaway population growth. The poor people have 2-10 children when they cannot even ill afford to have one.  This is another way of subjugation of the people.

    This press release by Mitsubishop Reyes has just exposed both his stupidity and arrogance.

    First, If the Catholic Church has moral influence on its people, how come they were not able to morally influence the 133 Congressmen and 13 Senators who had the backing of 80% of Filipinos to vote against the RH bill.

    Second, you have no right to talk about morals when your own Church members accept bribes, commit adultery, molest young girls and boys, father children, view and collect pornographic materials, meddle in the affairs of the State, and deceive or lie to the Filipino people.

    Your control over the Filipino people is gone!

    Is that true?  Bishop Reyes you must be dreaming or hallucinating.  We, the Filipino people will be the final arbiter as to whom we will vote!  IT IS NOT THE CATHOLIC CBCP OR IGLESIA NI CRISTO!  WE, THE FILIPINO PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY! NOT YOU BISHOP REYES OR YOUR ALIPORES!

    Your claim that you have the “highest credibility” is a SHAM.  People losses their trust on you because of your continued & unwelcome interference in government affair.  So shut the fuuck up!This is no longer the era of Padre Damaso!

  • johndcross1

    If you believe that your credibility is excellent, how come GOD did not listen to your prayers not to pass the RH bill?  Why, because you don’t have credibility at all even with GOD.  If GOD don’t listen to you, how can we ordinary mortals listen to you?

    Your credibility Bishop Reyes to the Filipino people is ZILCH, NADA, ZERO.  Adios Padre Damaso, you don’t scare & abuse us anymore!

    I am a Catholic but I am ashamed to profess my religion because of priest like him. I seldom go to church (maybe 2 times in a year) but I do my praying at home, alone outside of the church’s limelight and heretic sounds. I am planning to transfer to another religion because I find this religion so political and corrupt. Catholicism now is one of the worst religions in the world, and probably even blow Islam. Here in the U.S., the church does not meddle in government and does not influence politicians in their judgment. This is not what Jesus Christ taught us in the Bible. He mentioned the words “Give to Caesar what is to Caesar” means let the government do its job and do not interfere. The CBCP is one of the most corrupt organizations in the world now. What a pity!

    The catholic vote is a myth…. it is nothing but hogwash!!!  When the catholic church told the people not to vote for Ramos because he was a Protestant, Ramos won.  When they discouraged voters to vote for Erap because he was a womanizer, gambler, and a drunk, Erap won by a landslide vote.  So, I think if the catholic church campaigns against Roxas, he will win more votes.

    A threat? Vindictive posture by no less than a prelate? Is this the kind of message he would preach among his flock (if ever there is still loyal members)? Can he be more magnanimous instead by asking the people to simply pray for it’s smooth implementation rather than evoke hatred and animosity towards our leaders? It’s the primary reason why catholicism is declining in this country. Why not give what is duly for Caesar? This priest is simply a fool!

  • 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.

    Utang na loob mga obispo. SO MUCH FOR THE DIVIDE AND CONQUER BS. Move on and just tell your flocks to accept the verdict gracefully and if there’s anything in the law that you do not want your flocks to practice, just communicate (not threaten with eternal damnation) it to them thru weekly sermons, and please, thruthfully without disinformation and distortions. ACCEPT THE FACT THAT YOU ARE NOW IRRELEVANT IN THIS SOCIETY. There are now a lot of free-thinker Filipinos who are God believers but are sick and tired of your lies and deceptions.

    For once, practice what you preach. A true Christian will not dwell on sour-graping and will gracefully accept the rule of the majority (catholic majority that is. if you doubt this, dig into the surveys on RHB). You say it is not the people but the lawmakers. Just how stupid can you churchmen be. Our politics is a representative one. The lawmakers are representative of the  people, so it is the people’s will that prevailed. And as they say, the voice of the people is the voice of God. If you do  not believe in this, then tough luck. Maybe it’s time for the CBCP to go  somewhere else where you can still threaten people with eternal damnation trash.

    The CBCP still can’t take their hands off the cookie jar. Maybe it’s about time to amend the Constitution and make the church taxable.

    Why can’t the church stop whining?  Did the RH bill stop them from teaching their followers to refrain from practicing the natural method?  Will the RH bill compel people to use IUDs, condoms, etc?  Are parents going to be apprehended if they decide to have a dozen of children even if it is beyond their means?  The government has been subsidizing the church function for so long, why can’t the church buckle up and do their job instead of pressuring the government to make the sermons for them. Afterall, the church is not taxed, so they should have enough resources to ‘guide’ their flocks.

  • Facilitator1

    I still supports the CBCP or the Catholic Church, as a whole, on matters pertaining to spirituality and moral issues that don’t interfere/meddle with the affairs of the state. But, I’m also a firm believer in the separation of the Church and State.

    Bishop Reyes subtle warning to Sec ROXAS’ probable presidential ambition was WRONG and it just showed that the CHURCH was actively interfering or playing POLITICS. In addition, he was ABSOLUTELY right that the CHURCH has still many faithfuls/believers but he was DEFINITELY wrong to think/assume that the faithfuls were blindly submissive/compliant to the church’s unreasonable and out-of-touch attitudes/beliefs/instructions in this modern times. 

    IMHO: CBCP is too quick to reprimand/chastise anyone/anything that contradicts/challenges their authority/decisions/beliefs. They accuses/professes that their adversaries/antagonists of NOT playing FAIR or being DISHONEST. But they themselves are doing/practicing what they abhor/dislike/condemn. Prime example: CBCP accused the government of unduly influencing the legislature because PNOY’s cabinet members were present during the contentious deliberation but they forgot they themselves have a large contingent present as well–If you can’t call that HYPOCRISY or DECEITFUL. Then what else…PEACE

    SUGGESTION: The Catholic bishops, nuns, and priests are still FILIPINO citizens and as such, you can’t fault them if they show/select their own individual or collective political representatives and their political goals/aspirations. They should be commended for being active participants in the formulation/creation of our laws/statutes. However, their participation or presence in a POLITICAL RALLY or CAUSE (e.g. Congress) must be without their regular, recognizable religious outfits. Because as soon as they wear these religious ensemble they STOP being regular CITIZENs Juan/Juana Dela Cruz but members of a religious order. PHL Constitution clearly specify the separation of the State and Church. Merry Christmas y’all…

Maski bulatlatin mo ang buong Bible ay hindi posible yan. Guide lang ng tao ang Bible pero dapat ay may complementing system para makontra ang masamang epekto ng di pagsunod o ang kakulangan sa kakayahan ng TAO na sumunod sa salita ng Bibliya. Isa pa ay hindi lahat ng tao ay hindi naniniwala sa  Bible at yung marami ay hindi Katoliko. KAYA DAPAT AY TUMIGIL NA SA KANILANG PALABAS ANG KATOLIKA. Nakakasuka na sila. At huwag din nilang isipin na sila lang ang tama. Baka mabatukan pa sila ng mga Muslim at Judio. Una sa lahat ay marami silang tinuturo na malinaw na taliwas sa Bibliya gaya ng idolatry, pagan titles,  names from pagan gods at pagan tradition. Pinalabas lang nila na doctrina ng Romano.

      The bishops and the priests still believe that they have influence over their flocks ! They must be dreaming. Parishioners go to church to pray to God and not to listen to their jokes ! MGA MUKHANG REGALO AT PERA ANG MGA GANID NA OBISPO AT PARE!

  • cogito728sum

    Failing in their coercive effort to influence the decision of some legislators on the RH Bill, these bishops are now resorting to blackmail coated with a denial of not being after political power, that they are just after the growth of the country by using their influence.  Aside from not being forthright with their flocks, these men of the cloth are obviously confused.

    If we recognize that by having influence over another a person exercises power over him, then these bishops fail to realize that their frustrated attempt at influencing the vote of the congressmen who
    went for the RH approval is exactly that, an exercise of political power a relic of the medieval past
    and irrelevant to modern times.

    Another argument I find hard to swallow is the absurd statement that ‘the church has no pork barrel…no
    government projects” Why belabour the obvious?  Is it the hidden intent of these bishops to gain total
    control of the secular functions of the State?

    Indeed the Philippines is still a democratic country.  Inspite its multifarious problems, it hasn’t turned out to be a theocracy or ochlocracy in nature, as yet, despite incessant attempts of these bishops to
    change its political setup.  And thank goodness it is still the people who choose their leaders.

    The language employed by these bishops reminds me of the medieval philosopher by the name of  Abelard who said that the language of the Bible ‘was meant for unlettered people and must be
    interpreted by reason.’  The pronouncements of these meddling bishops need not be believed by
    the electors as they are devoid of reason and must have no bearing on their choice of candidates in the next elections.  This will wake them up to the reality that the Filipino mind is no longer in the
    medieval times and much more modern functionally than theirs.  Thank you folks!

       But not (only) because of condoms. No voter will vote anyone just because of his RH stance. A fallace of thought unfortunately both side adhere to.


    Malcañang really fought the Church,” Reyes said at a Church forum in Intramuros, Manila.

    I beg to disagree, It is the church fighting Malacanang. The last time I check the Philippine constitution — there is still separation of Church and State. The Catholic Church cannot accept the fact that they are losing control of their flock. If they could only offer free education within the Catholic Universities, then there would be no more lawmakers from UP who are not restricted by faith to make decisions. Sad to say, the Catholic institutions become a face of hypocricy and lost its moral purpose at the turn of century. Cost of Catholic education is expensive.

    Subtle threat as this one is counter productive. The 2016 election will be decided based on the performance of the P Noy administration. If the people are satisfied with the way he is running the goverment, his annointed candidate would have a better chance of winning the election. And if the vote on the RH bill is a factor in the election, why go beyond the 2013 election; will the legislators who voted in favor of  the bill and are running for re election still win?

  • wilfel

    What a SHAME for a Bishop to issued ultimatum to politicians working for the passage of RH bill about their political future. Don’t they (Catholic Priests) understand that there is a separation of State and Church. Let the goverment do their things and let the church educate the parishioner about the law. It is up to the people to follow what is in the law. If the church is against the law then do your things but not threatening the politicians of their political future since they serve their constituents that voted them in the first place. That is why the Catholic Church are losing the people from their Church for being so arrogant in their believe. This is not 15th century for what the priest says is the law. People are more intelligent than you think so Bishops and priests BUTT out. Stay where you belong and SHUT UP.

    At this point let us hope the passage of RH bill helps the country economically as well as in its security. Next, a bill to ensure employment for all citizens naman. Abay puro pasarap na bill ang gustong ipasa like the divorce law. Divorce law will make it easy to abandon the marriage union.

    Next trend once population is controlled is aging population. Just like in Japan and most of Europe. Filipinos will no longer be the source of old age caregivers. Nor nannies. Tayo na ang maghahahire ng foreign workers.

You stood for GMA & Corona & where are they now?

    Bottomline, whoever/whatever the bishops hate is good for the country. These bishops are so clueless that they didn’t realize they’re actually doing Roxas a favor & boosting his chances in 2016, lol! I’m not a fan of Roxas but since you’re opposing him & he stood for RH, he’s got my vote!

    Eventually, the set backs of the RH Bill will be obvious especially in the attitude and behaviour of the young and the youths. This will come in time. When this happens I want to hear what the pro-RH Bill people have to say. The real issue here is not just the RH Bill but its long term consequences on the lives of the people. Sad to say, the noisy and aggressive anti-Church and pro-RH Bill proponents had never fully read the RH Bill, including the Congress people. Sad talaga. And the Congress people who voted for it did not vote out of conscience and conviction. They voted for it because of the pork being dangled on them. Sad talaga.

    So, the hierarchy (not the Church which is the truly represented by the entire people of God — never by the bishops or the hierarchy like the cardinals, bishops, priests), is showing it’s true vindictive color, warning and wielding its woe of evil against those who go against their minds and opinions. Are you still wondering why many right and critical thinking Filipinos, especially those who know how to proactively reason and think well, are going away from the Catholic Church? The hierarchy sounds no different from the medieval inquisition which was violent, domineering, and unjust. That’s been proven in history. And the present hierarchy, the way they speak and behave, are simply continuing that dreaded tradition. Isn’t that a painful shame for the Catholic Church?

For the Catholic church to survive they have to cleanse their own ranks and get rid of ALL immoral priests.

He relishes on his post in the Church partly funded by the government through tax breaks and incentives and yet barks at the same government as if wanting to rule and impose his will. He purposely and conveniently forgotten that a great number of anti-RH hordes led by bishops and priests were neatly and comfortablly settled in Congress during the deliberation and voting – even with the fact that most if not all of them were not part of the government officialdom and there is that constitutional provision of the separation of church and state. Yet, this Padre Damaso, wants to deny certain persons who are clearly and undeniably part of the government to be present there. What kind of logic do you have, bishop? Or, do you know one? He clearly wants to bake his cake and eat it, too. I call that greed!

      “They crush you with impossible religious demands and never lift a finger to help ease the burden. Everything they do is for a show.” - Matthew 23

      This verse made me realize how it is today. You see them enforcing upon the people impractical rules like you can only use natural birth control methods, … and that you must control your urge… no condoms and no artificial methods… But they failed to realize the fact or what it is in reality. No human can be as holy as the Messiah. It takes the character of the Messiah to be like such. In fact, even priests have failed like there were many homosexuals, which is a sin, and many have molested churchgoers too. Even Satan failed as an angel and that’s why he was kicked out of heaven. They love to impose rules that are impossible to follow. But how are they behaving as priests by the way?

      Worse, they don’t lift a finger to help alleviate the plight of these poor families. Are there free tuition in the universities they built or subsidies on school expenses? 

      What’s factual is that UST and Ateneo are 2 of the most expensive schools in the country.

      Are there any free housing for the poor? Free medical service for the poor?

      But none. Thing is, “WHERE DO THE TITHES GO?

      “Let’s try to analyze now;

      For 1 church, 500 churchgoers x P50 is P10,000.

      4 schedules a day means P10,000 x 4 equals P40,000.

      In some churches like in Quiapo, there are 13 masses every Friday and 9 masses for the rest.

      40,000 x 30 days = P1.2 MILLIONP

      1.2 Million x 12 months = P14,400,000 or P14.4 Million

      How many Catholic church across the country?

      Rough estimate is 1 per every municipality or city.

      That’s 1,496 town X P14.4 Million, which is P21,542,400,000


      Not included are towns with more than 1 church, and the millions of donations and the millions of income from the expensive schools and so on.

      Okay, assuming it’s just 16 Billion and half of this goes to VATICAN !!!!

      (What? All these for making the Vatican rich?)

      So, out of the 8 billion 2 billion goes to operational expenses. So, what do they do with the 6 Billion?

      Make your assessment now.Have they done anything to help the poor like free education, free housing, free medical service?

      Check the church where you belong too and realize what’s been going on.

      Well, review what the Bible says.

    For us the BEST GIFT to JESUS is the GIFT of LIFE and LOVE. A mother carries a child to be born as a gift. No matter how many they are, but this is the gift and mission entrusted by god to married couples. To believe that god will not abandoned them what ever crisis or problem they have. To have FAITH is important.

    … many bishops and priests did not notice  intentionally… or intentionally blind to the evils of Gloria and cohorts because many of them requested and received favors/gifts from her.  They have lost their freedom to denounce evil, they lost their independence and afraid to speak the truth. They have lost their objectivity.  They are asking donations from here and there, from any body they think can give in to their thirst for money and material things [thirst for power, honor and prestige as well]. Many times they ask donations in the name of the poor people.

    The bishops, priests have to pay taxes too.  They are to file also their annual  income tax just like all of us who from our sweat and tears and labour,… just like any of us simple Filipino people who can eat and live by the sweat of our brows.  WHO ARE THEY TO BE EXEMPTED, AND WHY SHOULD THEY BE EXEMPTED?  BEING EXEMPTED IS PART OF THEIR THIRST AND HUNGER FOR POWER, HONOR, PRESTIGE, TREATED AS SPECIAL IN SOCIETY, TO WHOM WE BOW/BEND, HANDS WE KISS, TO WHOM WE KOWTOW…….IT IS TIME TO BRING THEM DOWN FROM THE PEDESTAL.

    “He was also there and we also welcomed him. What he ate was also free, the same as everybody else,” he said.

    The Catholic church’s history is one of corruption, deception, murder, harassment, theft, child abuse, rape, and other heinous crimes. So what moral influence is the bishop talking about?
    What he probably meant was the church’s capability to abuse its power by teaching false doctrine meant to pressure or scare its poor followers.

    No bishop will be with Jesus in the end times. Jesus himself said this when he warned people against “wolves in sheep’s clothing..”

    Jesus obeyed the law made by people..even paying his tax. The priest disobey and don’t pay taxes. 

    The good news is that people are no longer stupid as in the olden days. They know what hypocrisy is.

    Congratulations to all those who worked hard towards the passage of the RH bill.  At long last, we have intelligent politicians who have the courage to represent the wishes of their constituents without getting sucked into the dirty business of the church.

    Now, the church shows its vindictive nature by threatening Roxas.  It is so hyprocritical that it claims to be the bastion of morality yet its behaviour shows nothing but an obsession with power.  The church needs to accept the reality of today’s Philippines where people are more educated and independent and cannot be threatened with lengthy waffles with no evidence.

    If the church believes that pork barrel offers contributed to the passage of the bill, then perhaps it should have match them by offering return of the millions of pesos that the people, rich and poor, have contributed over so many years and help feed and educate the poor families.

    Of course, some companies will make money out of the contraceptives like every other business.  The bad thing is that the church will be left out on the billions of pesos because they should not be selling contraceptives.

    The church should change its attitude and behaviour if it wants to remain relevant.  It should stop trumpeting about morality and speak about the realities of life instead and show a helping hand to the needy instead of offering endless masses and prayers.  What the people need is real help – food, shelter, clothing and education.  The priests should get out of their white suits, get their hands and feet dirty and show that they are the real servants of God.

    Practical na kasi tayong lahat. RH Bill is for us to be able to help OURSELVES na ma-control yung selves natin. It’s actually not just about giving out condoms but to practice safe sex. May isang part dun na about sa sex education to children 10 and above. I think this is really relevant kasi this is the right time para ma-aware na yung mga kids why mali maki-pag sex. Yung common kasi sa atin is that talking about sex is a taboo kaya nasha-shock nalang yung mga bata bakit sila pinagagalitan if they mention anything related to sex. 
    So this is a very practical Bill :D

    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 for better church leaders from the Vatican.

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

Makikilala si Mar Roxas bilang protektor ng telecommunications cartel, gambling lords tulad nang jueteng, at lahat ng mga cartel na protektado ni Benigno Aquino III(tulad nang langis, tubig, kuryente, atbp. Sa aga nilang nangangampanya at walang ginawa kungdi mamulitika, mangampanya, at magfund raising, tulad ni Jejomar Binay, pareho silang masusunog nang maaga sa pulitika, at uungusan nang mas mga lilitaw na popular na kandidato pagkatapos ng 2013 elections. Walang mananalong kandidatong pangulo na nakasama si Benigno Aquino III sa 2016 dahil sa mas magiging matindi ang kahirapan at kaapihan na hindi kakayaning pasubalian nang anumang propaganda at  psywar. Anim na taong ririndihin ang taongbayan, sa ilalim nang grupong ito nila Aquino III, Mar Roxas, at Jejomar Binay, nang mga patakaran, programa, at mga batas, na pawang pagpapatuloy lamang nang kay Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. At dahil walang magiging pagbabago sa kabuhayan at kagalingan, at lalong maghihirap ang taongbayan, sila ay matatalo!

    Makakakuha pa rin ng boto si Mar Roxas sa 2013 kahit ayaw ng simbahan sa pagkatao nya.

    Maigsi ang memory ng Pinoy.  Tignan natin ang nangyari kay Juan Flavier.  Kahit hayagan ang pangampanya ng Simbahang Katoliko laban sa kanyang kandidatura pero nanalo pa rin sya sa pagka-senador.  Kasi bukod sa unique ang itsura ni Flavier ay may sense of humor sya na tanggap ng masa.  Over-exposed na rin sya sa telebisyon nung panahong iyon (Lets DOH it!!)  

    Hindi na naalala ng mga tao ang pagiging Anti-life advocate ni Flavier ng araw mismo ng botohan kaya nanalo pa rin sya bilang Senador.  
    Kapag hindi agresibo ang kampanya ng Simbahan laban sa mga pulitiko na nagsulong ng Anti-life bill na ito ay hindi malayo na manalo uli sila.

     The bottom line is simple. The RC wants to trash the RH bill in order to continue their dominance through increasing population. The RH bill  if signed into law will limit their number and may jeopardize their kingdom and not to mention the unabated BAC converts. which surely hurt Vatican’s income. Mar Roxas ur in the right track, go on. This is the first time that political leaders defy RC hierarchy’s call and it’s a good sign, emancipating from their evil’s ring.

      I understand and agree with you.  Altho, might be worth mentioning that in my case, it was a matter of faith.

      I used to be heavy drinker, smoker, at times landing in police confinement for some misdemeanors I got myself in.  After birth of my second child, we thought of availing free issues of contraceptives and condoms from our Company.  During those early times, there were already family clinics around.

      May napuna kaming pantal-pantal sa misis ko, sa paggamit ng contraceptives.  Lumala ang pangamba naming dalawa nang may makita kaming dugo sa ebak ng 5-month old child ko.  Nag-voice ng concern ang Nanay ko nang malaman.  Nagpayo siya na labag sa utos ng Simbahan, base na rin sa utos ng Diyos, ang paggamit ng artificial methods, idinugtong pa niya:  KAPAG BINIGYAN KA NG DIYOS NG ANAK, MAGSIKAP KA LANG, HINDI KA NIYA PABABAYAAN.

      Stop ang contraceptives.  The next 3 years, I added 3 more children.  5 na ang anak ko.  Di pa nagbabago ang suweldo ko. Marami pa rin akong bisyo.  Sino ang mahal ko…ang barkada ko, o ang mga anak ko?  Ang mga anak ko natural!

      Bumuglaw ang job openings abroad.  OCW pa ang tawag no’n (overseas contract worker).  Napunta ako sa Middle East.  Believe it or not, sa lugar na walang religious freedom, dahil sa walang mapaglilibangan, nahalungkat ko ang Bibliya.  Wala ring alak, kaya napatunayan ko sa Nanay ko na kaya ko ang buhay na walang alak.

      Nadagdagan ng isa pa, naging anim ang aming mga anak — mga adults na sila ngayon…ang pinakapobre sa kanila, ay may sariling brand new Mazda, empleyado ng isang napakalaking organisasyon na kilala kahit saan, kahit ng mga hindi nakapag-aral sa atin. At maaliwalas ang kabuhayan naming mag-asawa…hindi kami magiging pabigat sa aming mga anak sa panahon ng aming katandaan.

      PRO-LIFE ako…pero, happy rin ako na bigyan ng FREE or PRO-CHOICE ang iba.

    Why would the Church leadership blacken its own self in the eyes of Catholic believers, to the false rejoicings of those who have been maligning the faith.  ISSUING THIS THREAT IS AN ACT OF VENGEANCE, WHICH IS NEVER CONDONED IN THE CHURCH’s TEACHINGS?

    the church has no business interfering in government affairs. the government is doing everything to protect the country from the results of the church’s failure. and where was the church failed?

    1) unwed mothers and illegitimate children are mostly catholics.
    2) catholics are mostly promiscuous and accounts to high percentage of teen pregnancy.
    3) catholics accounts to large percentage of illicit sex and abortions.
    4) being unguided, most catholics are incapable of responsible sex and responsible parenthood.
    6) with too many mouths to feed, most catholics lives in sub human conditions.
    7) growing up in hunger, catholics becomes greedy and resorts to corruption and stealing.
    8) being greedy, corrupt, lacking moral guidance and accounts for 90% of population, no wonder our country is devastated and in total mess.

    the church should concentrate on its flock and clean its rank of pedophiles, gays, hedonists and greedy materialistic priests, so it can be taken seriously by its followers. if it won’t feed the starving  people…the church should put its house in order and guide its people….and not mess with something that is not within its sphere.

        And then you are saying that one would not have a right to criticize the Bishops if one is not a Catholic. Well, the Bishops opend it because they stepped into the political arena. They criticized the elected government, they were threatening officials of the state. So every citizen has also the right to criticize the Bishops on their position. They do not like it? So bad. You know the proverb “if you can´t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”?

        Ireland is predominately Roman Catholic as is the Philippines. For years it operated under a code of silence with the Catholic Church until a Priest was finally charged with the sexual abuse of a child, and then hundreds f such cases came into the open. More are still to come. When the people finally elected a government not committed to the Church, their economy prospered. They are currently dealing with 16th century Catholic Laws that stopped a pregnant non catholic from having an abortion even though her life was threatened She died. Very similar countries – Ireland is slightly further ahead in its development and progress in overcoming catholic doctrine. Mostly it is driven by Catholics themselves.

      • $20722540

        it appears that the church or the catholics church is being blamed, if the country is not progressing…similar in Ireland?  thats unfortunately, no matter what you do, the church doesn’t run the gov’t or the church has nothing to do in running a gov’t, so to say that a country is not progressing due some doctrine of the church, has no basis.  this discussion has become convoluted bec. the article is about church influence in the coming elections but has become a bashing time about the priest sexual abuse blah blah…an entirely different issue.  the critical issue why our country is not progressing because of too much politics – motivated only by vested interest, corruption (from the highest to lowest level of the bureauracy), etc. etc.

      • Hfxwst

        Perhaps – there are differences in the two countries. Here, there is an arrogance in the Catholic Church, clearly promoted by the Church Officials – to the point of being disrespectful of other religions. The world is trying to move to a place where all are entitled to their beliefs. Here, the Catholic Church wishes their doctrine to be reflected in the laws of the land and therefore forced on all. This causes divisiveness – one only has to looks at the Islamic Community in the Philippines. The Catholic Clergy in other countries are respectful for the most part, and know their place in society. They are humble and respectful and helpful to the poor and the dis advantaged. Our Catholic Clergy is arrogant, spoiled, over indulged and aspire to politics rather than christian beliefs – they are NOT good role models. There are at least 20 million non Catholics and 20 million non practicing Catholics in this country – Bishops DO NOT speak for them – and there is no place for exclusively Catholic doctrine in our laws.

      • zdrx

        the church is not part of the govt…but why is the church forcing the govt to be part of the church’s sphere of influence?  

        yes, no one dictates what the church should do…THEREFORE, THE CHURCH HAS NO BUSINESS DICTATING ON WHAT THE GOVT SHOULD DO.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

        If the Church is indeed “dictating”on the govt, then why did they LOST the RHB fight? What about, The Executive Branch of govt represented by Pnoy is DICTATING CONGRESS, a CO-EQUAL BRANCH? More appropriate, right? 

      • zdrx

        they lost because the govt stood their ground on an issue that the church has no business interfering, to begin with. the govt has every right to campaign for congressional approval of RH bill. politics is within the govt territory…politics is not a church spiritual playground.

        your word “they LOST the RHB fight” is proof that they indeed dipped their fingers on a hot political issue…and their finger got burned. the fact that the bishop issued a threat is proof enough that the church tried to dictate….but was rebuffed.

    A bishop threatening a person? Conduct unbecoming of a priest. So Roxas or Korina should no longer confess until 2016 to a priest or else baka ibulgar nila sa kalaban niya.

    the “church” has opposed the RH bill for 14 years during which time the shantytowns have increased by 30 million poverty stricken filipinos – sadly many of them still believe the “church” will alleviate their suffering but without proper education they cannot understand that ever more filipinos means ever more poverty, unemployment and at best cheap labour. The majority of poor people do not want more children but they cannot afford contraception so the RH bill makes sense except to those who profit from the poor and who abuse the poor with false gospels.

    Had Roxas only read and understand the bible through the guidance of the Holy Spirit then he would had just kept mum on the issue of he RH Bill but he was forcibly swayed by the devil when surveys appear that many will vote for the proponents. What he failed to way as a consequence is the fact that he’s fighting God in his action to join the melee of clamor for the passage of the bill. Well that’s the up and down of being a nonbeliever.

    I am a catholic, but I don’t like the behavior of this bishop who tried to interfere the fundamental affairs of the state. He should shy away from politics, if he knows what separation of the state and the church is all about. The church should be the first one to uphold the right of choice by our women when and how to produce offspring. Freedom should not only be present in the state but also the church the most. 

    • alienpatriot

       The CBCP sees Pinoy politics as something that it should control. It does not respect the right of Pinoys to govern their own country. It told the people of this country that the CBCP’s own interests superseded those of the people when the RH bill was being debated. It will not stop now unless ordinary Catholics rise up and tell the CBCP that the Bishops Conference speaks only for the Church heirarchy, not the ordinary Catholic.
      Rizal himself saw this 100 years ago. These days the Church is more careful to portray an image of listening and caring but the heirarchy is really the same. The local priests are changed but the CBCP is a political organisation, with Christian principles being of secondary importance.

    Is it blackmail or revenge? Either way, the CBCP is, once again, acting in an unChristian way. The Church did not get what it wanted. Its greed lost out to the welfare of the Filipino people and now we see the result. The CBCP will never admit it was wrong. It will just take action to interfere in the political process to the detriment of the people that it claims to support.
    There are few organisations as corrupt and self-centered as the CBCP today. It is a sad fact that an organisation claiming to care for the poor and justice is, in fact, the worst enemy of both.
    I hope the Filipino people stand up to the CBCP and proclaim again their willingness ignore the threats of the CBCP. They have done it once in supporting the RH bill. They will be required to do it again as the CBCP will fight independent Pinoys again and again.

    Bakit naman ganitong manakot ang mga pari na ito? Di ba ang mga alagad ng simbahan ay dapat banal? Bakit sila nakikialam sa mga batas na dapat ipairal sa Pilipinas? Kung ang alagad ng simbahan ay nanakot sa opisyales ng gobyerno sa sa pagsuporta sa RH Bill, di huwag n din tayong dumalo sa misa baka maging karaniwang tao ay takutin din nila. Pasok na lang tayo ng simbahan kapag walang misa.

    sa mga pari na nadismaya sa pag kapasa ng RH Bill sa kamara at senado, lagi po kayong mag-rosaryo ki San Pedro Calaungsod para magkaron po kayo ng katahimikan sa inyong kaisipan at kalooban. masama po iyan, na para bagang nananakot kayo sa mga politiko na mi ambisyon sa 2016.

    CBCP now is too currupt in the mind, if they will not get what they want then they will threat the person who defied them…  so lame!

    This CBCP attitude makes me think  twice into believing their moral teaching, they are just a bunch of bull…  ipagdasal nalang natin sila sana lumayo na ang demonyo sa isip nila at maliwanagan at marealize nila na wala na tayo sa panahon ng kastila.

    When the RH Bill was approved in ITALY, the pope was QUIET.

    Why are the lowly bishops so NOISY?

    Ayaw ko sana kay Mar pero sa ginagawang pananakot ng CBCP (Corporasyon ng mga Baklitang Cupal at Pedophile) ay iboboto ko siya at ikampanya ko pa siya para mapahiya ang mga Damasong Mitsubishops.

    Catholic church is threatening Vice President Roxas Presidential ambition in 2016? Why can’t they just keep their mouth shut and stay away from politics…after all catholic religion is not the government.

    The bishops violates the the separation of church and states as stated in  Article II section 6 of the Constitution.
