Cebu bishop: Priests can’t campaign vs RH solons

By |


Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma told reporters on Wednesday he would not allow pulpits in his archdiocese to be used in the campaign in the elections next year against lawmakers who voted for the reproductive health (RH) bill.

“That is not bound to happen,” said Palma, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, adding that the Pope would not allow this. However, he said that lay people could campaign against those who approved the RH bill.

Already, an international prolife group is asking the people to vote against the pro-RH lawmakers.

“To our voters, please remember the names of those who voted for the RH bill. Don’t return them to office,” said Ligaya Anacta-Acosta, Human Life International director for Asia and Oceania.

In Lucena City, Fr. Robert Reyes, an activist known as the “running priest” for using marathons to publicize his causes, on Friday blamed the Catholic Church hierarchy for its failure to stop the passage of the RH bill.

“The leaders of the Church should not always talk to the faithful from the comfort of the pulpit. Every priest and bishop should now learn to step down from their pedestal and reach out to the greater masses of our suffering people to know their true condition, needs and aspiration,” Reyes said in a phone interview.

“The presence of the Church against human rights violations, agrarian reform, the plight of the urban poor and other pressing social concerns is wanting,” he lamented.

With the RH bill set to be signed into law by President Aquino, its principal author on Friday said the measure would benefit at least 7.5 million students in public schools who would be exposed to sex education.

Citing data from the Department of Education, Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, who campaigned for the RH bill for many years, was referring to adolescents from Grade 6 to high school.

“The mandatory age and development appropriate reproductive health education among the young as prescribed in the reconciled RH bill will initially benefit no less than 7.5 million adolescents,” he said in a statement.

“The number of beneficiaries would even increase if RH education would start at an earlier grade than Grade 6 because the period of adolescence starts at an age lower than those of 6th graders,” he claimed.

Lagman cited the bill’s provision defining adolescents as “young people between the ages of 10 and 19 years who are in transition from childhood to adulthood.”

Major issue

“Since the young should not be deprived of RH education just because they are enrolled in private schools, it is expected that many private elementary and secondary schools would opt to teach reproductive health education to equally educate their pupils and students,” he said.

The provision mandating sex education was a major issue during congressional debates on the RH bill.

During the period of individual amendments, Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez asked that “mandatory age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education” be taught starting “senior high school,” not Grade 6.

Rodriguez was concerned that starting with Grade 6 pupils might lead to “misunderstanding” on lessons pertaining to “sex, sexuality and reproductive health.”

‘Too late’

“It’s irreparable if these children will misapprehend (the lessons),” he said.

But Lagman was adamant, saying starting sex education lessons among adolescents aged 16 or 17 would be “too late.”

As a compromise, he accepted a proposal to amend the provision, which now states: “Age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education shall be taught by adequately trained and qualified teachers.”

He also agreed to a proposal by Rodriguez to include the sentence: “Upon due notification by the Department of Education and private educational institutions through the principals in writing two weeks before classes start, parents shall be informed of the option of not allowing their minor children to attend classes pertaining to reproductive health.” With reports from Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon; and Joey A. Gabieta and Jhunnex Napallacan, Inquirer Visayas

    Palma prohibited the priests from using the pulpit in asking voters to reject RH congressmen/senators for a good reason. Palma is aware of the consequences. They will be embarrassed again, So to avoid a double whammy, he will dissuade them from doing so.

    Palma is very much aware that the contrary will happen; that those who voted against RH will be facing rejection. 

    Trillanes and Pimentel may not be aware at the moment the consequences of voting against RH but very soon, they will. Their LP affiliation will not help.  
      

  • sopingac

    The dynamics of local politics is different from the national level. A few years ago, pro-Gloria Congressmen still won while the senatoriables failed miserably.

    Fr. Robert Reyes is right. Many priest today are too detached with reality and have become irrelevant. Perhaps some do understand the real situation but opted to do what is comfortable rather than challenge the stand of the Church leadership.

    I am a Catholic having been born to parents of the same religion but sometimes I can no longer stand the sermons of some priest as they seem to be speaking and preaching to dumb and illiterate parishioners.

    They seriously need to wake up.

    This time, Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma is making sense. If the Church use the pulpit in campaining in this election or in any election, this might boomerang. Intelligent Filipino voters might be turned-off.

    Edcel Lagman is more Christian in his actions than most of the bishops.  I think the Pope should make an enlightened exceptional papal decision and appoint Edcel Lagman as the next Archbishop of Manila.  That might stop the exodus of Filipinos who are fleeing the Catholic Church and other organized religions.

    RH Law will surely fail.  Pinoy attitude never obey any law from jay-walking to sleep-walking.  You are wasting the public fund for nothing. The Church will remain as strong even all the azz-bashing.  Karma will catch up with you.  Sa Cebuanon:  Gaba kaninyo!  :D

    • panhase

       Maybe you did not understand the RH-bill or you did not read it at all?
      And what´s with this “the Church will remain as strong….”? This bill is not about the Church.

    • sopingac

      The RH bill has nothing to do with Catholic Church. There is no enforcement or restriction to be made. It is about choice and giving people the opportunity to realize this choice. There was no encroachment made on the church and it is them who wanted to force their will on the government.

      The Church can still encourage people not to use contraceptives and no one and I mean no one will be forced to use any of the services that will be provided because of the RH bill.

      We may have different point of views but people need to correctly inform themselves in order to be able to give an educated opinion.

    • antiscam

      The CBCP will suffer a final defeat in the Judiciary (SC) after their defeat in our Executive and Legislative. Even our best Constitutionalist mind Father Joaquin Bernas agrees with the RH Bill. Now the CBCP will argue its unconstitutional.

It is a duty of all God believers to slay the devil. Campaign agints this PDAF hungry evil creastures of Pro RH. It is evil versus good, Not politics.

    Rodriguez was concerned that starting with Grade 6 pupils might lead to “misunderstanding” on lessons pertaining to “sex, sexuality and reproductive health.”

    Dear Bishops, it’s okay, just continue in what you have already been doing. You have been a big disappointment to us many educated Catholics anyway, and I for one does not anymore believe you will be able to set yourselves in the right direction of your job description. You can’t accept your failure at EVANGELIZATON, and you cover up by blaming others and the RH Bill for your failures. Had you simply done your job, successful evangelizaton will not result to the faithful even entertaining a germ of an RH bill idea, and the growing acrimony against the leadershp of the Catholic Church would not have found root. I went to an anticpated mssa de gallo mass in my community last night. There was less and less people attending. I too left wthout finishing it. The priest was still ranting against the passage of the RH Bill. He was in a fightng mood. I did not feel closer to spiritual salvation listening to him.

You can then aspire to blackmail politcians, even a president – for an SUV on your birthday. Discern on the word and meaning of Evangelization and maybe you just might get a sense of enlightenment.

        Between the bishop and me, sino sa palagay mo ang mas may katwiran maging tapat sa pagka Catolico?

      • Mendoza_Juniors

         Ok I admire you for being a good Catholic on your account. But if you understand your faith you can compare with your body as Paul said. One sick organ does not make the whole corrupt. I’m not defending the bishops in scandals but I am not judging as well coz I am not private to the cases. I was taught: the focus is Christ. We don’t promote ourselves as holier than the others because we are this or do that. Holiness is a gift–free.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J4GY2YEB4LB44XOKS67O56D56A celso

        It is precisely my understanding of my faith why I hold myself strictly accountable to it. I have it in my heart and mind to always strive to do good, and in the process, the discernment of what is not good. My support fir the RH Bll doesn’t make for a sick organ.I don’t aspire to be holy because it is a difficult undertaking for me, but I always strive to be spiritual which gives one the essence to be fair and charitable.

      • Mendoza_Juniors

        So I hope you understand the fight against RH is one mandate to fight elements that will lead to promiscuity, possible abortion, same-sex marriage, etc. as historical trend indicate in those countries that embraced them. That’s the point of the struggle in the name of values for the faith. In terms of other issues, you read the other anti (not bishops) about their empirical studies: demographic winter, corruption, population manipulation, etc.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J4GY2YEB4LB44XOKS67O56D56A celso

        In Monsod’s column, I posted my view that the RH Bill is a Govt Health and Economic Measure, not a matter for Religion. So any argument dragging the issues about faith, abortion, promiscuity, etc is irrelevant to me.

      • Mendoza_Juniors

        No problem. I respect your view. But my faith is not separate from my values and my daily life. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

    I hope parents will weigh deeply if they will allow or not allow their children to attend this subject as once they passed this stage, they can no longer rewind nor come back for the subject. It is good that the subject was made optional and to give parents to decide what they deem good for their children’s sexual upbringing.

    wala na talaga yatang credibility sa binibitiwang salita ng bawat priest o bishop, hypocrites all. itong ‘running priest’ pro na ngayon sa RH Bill pero di nagsalita nung kasagsagan ang debate, kampi na ngayon dahil popular/nanalo na. itong president ng CBCP catch 22 ang sinasabi. nasa sensible catholics na lang siguro kung sisimba pa rin sila every Sunday, God is every where, ika nga nila. Ako, sa TV ng lang (muna) makikinig ng mass, madaling iswitch-off pag hindi ko gusto ang sinasabi, will just honor the day of rest and peace with my loved ones, bonding.

      • damatannapo

        wala akong sinasabing the sun is yellow, I used the word color cast. Remember you’re talking about symbolism

      • Albert Einstien

        wikipedia: A colour cast is a tint of a particular colour, usually UNWANTED, which affects the whole of a photographic image evenly…

        so if your YELLOW is just a color cast whiich is normally UNWANTED..THEN what is the POINT in saying this  …” Sun is a source of life without it nothing will exist on earth and so is the Solar System . Sure the sun’s color cast is yellow. Therefore your own god is wrong……”  lol.

      • damatannapo

        That is photography and Wiki is talking about image taken which are undesirable for photography and is being corrected by softwares such as PhotoShop, Aperture (Mac), SilkyPix or Lightroom called white balance

      • Albert Einstien

        that is what i’m pointing out to you sir… your color cast yellow  is NONE sense…..because true color of sun is WHITE…lol

    Reyes and Palma are correct in saying that their priests should not and should not have used the pulpit in their campaign against the RH Bill and also campaign against politicians who voted yes to the RH Bill. These two must have started seeing some light after. However, had they advised this earlier to their priests, maybe they would not have been ridiculed by the public. The pulpit is a sacred area in the Church and should be used to propagate God’s words and teachings. By using it for political messages and political tirades is not proper as 100% of people who go to church are expecting to hear the word of God instead of the word of man during sermons. People don’t go to church to hear political sermons. They go to church to renew their faith in God and listen to His teachings. This could be the reason why many catholics also ridiculed their priests and became defiant to favor of the RH Bill.

    For the short visit I had during Gloria’s time (I was still a mass-attending and praying catholic then), I always attended sunday mass and tried my best to attend it in a different church every time. In all these masses, I was really aching to hear the  priest mention anything about scandals and corruption in Gloria’s reign and any sermon that directly or indirectly attack corruptions in relation to the ever growing poverty and lawlessness. NIL, NADA, ZILTCH, ZIP, ZERO, NOTHING. Talk about selective values and morals.

    Now, they actually attack RHB and their proponents using the pulpit. What a shame. So low and cheap. These men in cloth who are self-proclaimed messengers of God are really proving to be a bunch of hypocrites.

    Is it really too difficult for your small minds to accept God’s will? Or are you still that stupid to argue that passing the RHB is not God’s will? Another of those church’s deceptions and lies that only what the church says is God’s will is God’s will. So, what happened to that theological premise that nothing here on earth happens that is not God’s will. Although I no longer believe in organize religion, I still believe firmly in God and I believe that it is not possible for anything to happen if God did not allow it to happen.

    the push is intensifying; targeting world leaders and people of influence; 
    uk, france, netherlands, spain, sweden, southafrica, argentina and canada have fallen;

    noykapon has fallen; so do many ph politicians and academics; ph on the verge of falling; 

    everything will be redefined; 
    $sodomy becomes love; bestialisex is affection; 
    a junkie is chic; a prostitute is enterprising; 
    adopting the agenda is equated to progress, prosperity and advancement; 

    the idea is to make the world one big orgy; all people thinking, behaving and acting alike;

    Since maaaprub na yan hayaan na natin ang RH-Bill to have its way, but as a catholic parent hindi ako pipirma na ituro sa mga anak ko na nasa grade six ang tungkol sa sex education. Payag lang ako pagtinuro na ito na nasa senior highschool na mga anak ko.

    bayaan nalang natin si lagman na aralin ng mga apo nya yang sex education tutal may pera naman yan pambayad perwisyo

        kung dapat makulong eh di makulong. 

    • madallison

      Hindi ka nagbabasa. Ang ituturo ay age-appropriate sex education. Ang grade six ay tuturuan Lang tunkol sa mga pagbabago sa katawan pag nagdadalaga na sila. Hindi yung sex act. Please read the bill before you comment.

    The ones who should not be voted are those politicians who are against the RH bill. The Catholic Church has no clout over the people for they see the church as the devil in disguise. And besides…. There is no Catholic vote!!!. We vote according to our conscience and thinking and not because of the caprices of the chur h.

Just asking.

  • opinyonlangpo

    Vengeful. Why not just make the best out of the RH Bill? Most of the clergy would opt to go against the pope and against God. Its better if they concentrate on preaching ethics and moral guidelines to whatever remains of the flock instead of planning a conspiracy against the lawmakers.

  • rodben

    The church still have more chance to give a lessons to the Politicians BULLYING to them in spite of the big help given by the church to give these Politicians a chance in politic after EDSA..

  • wawangpenoy

    Mga anti-RHB, kababayan ko din kayo. Mag-isip-isip naman kayo. Hindi ko inaalis sa inyo ang paniwala ninyo and in fact, even the RHB does not impose on you what it provides. It is totally up to you. This is one of those bill/law that is optional to those who do not want it but provides help to those who may want it. Please be discerning of what the church is telling you. Right now, don’t you see? The church is employing the divide and conquer tactics on top of their scare mongering and disinformation. The church takes consolation on the fact that there are still members of their flocks that believe in  them and will defend the church in ways they’re capable of, which unfortunately, as manifested in this thread, is by profanities. (it is also unfortunate that some of my fellow RHB supporters here are resorting to the same disgusting behaviour. In fact, I admit, at one time or another, I have resorted to profanities out of frustration. Mea culpa)

    Can you not ask your bishops why, instead of regrouping and drafting new and better ways of guiding the flocks the Christian way, they’re creating havoc among fellow catholics? Is this really the christian way? Look at you guys here in this thread. The way you react to comments that are contrary to your belief, it’s really very unbecoming of a true Christian and runs counter to your church’s teachings of loving your neighbors and enemies.  What is really sad is we, the pro-RHBs are not your enemies. Your enemy is your ego as molded by your righteous and pontificating bishops. Had these bishops behaved properly the way church leaders are supposed to behave, we would not be throwing mud at each other.

    Please, let’s not create this division that the church is trying to foster. We are free to avail or not avail of the provisions of the RHB if we will ever want it (if you notice, I used the work want because even if you direly need it you have the option to not avail of any of its benefits). This is a law where no one among the supposed beneficiary can be criminally liable and be imprisoned. The only people that I could see may be held liable, criminally or civilly (not sure and I stand corrected) are the service providers, i.e., hospitals, doctors nurses, etc who may be charged by the law with the responsibility to administer or provide the benefits but fail or refuse to do so.

    • boldyak

      RHB bill is your first step for more immoral bills…why give free condoms?…why you use our money to buy condoms for the irresponsible maniacs…you have a long comment and you write as if the whole truth is there….the truth is that this RH bill is just to distribute condoms…sex education, family planning are already there…people have the choice already whether they use contraceptive or not…pro RH people always telling us that this is about freedom of choice…can you tell me ifsomebody was put to jail because they have condoms?…giving free condoms is just another way of telling people that oaky lang ang kamanyakan nyo basta gamit lang kayo condom…what is next to RH bill, devorce?…then what?…abortion?…then what?…same sex marriages?…where is the society leding to?…we will be like dogs f_cking beside the roads…the bishops are trying to prevent further deterioration of human/moral values and you people are trying your best to further deteriorate it…isn’t that simple to understand?…

      • wawangpenoy

         Can you tell me how much lower our morality can get? With all the murders, rapes, abortions, robberies, child abuses, prostitutions, briberies, swindling, philandering, plundering, name it, and you’re still talking of further deterioration? of what?

        In case you were born yesterday, these things can only get worse and you should be thankful that the RHB can hopefully, minimize, if not eliminate, abortions (prevention before fertilization), prostitution (because of less hungry street girls roaming around), child abuses, murder, rapes, robberies (because of a more educated masses and more jobs available courtesy of better population management), corruption and plunder (becaues of more intelligent voters). Do I really have to go on and on and on. That will be an insult to your intelligence which I would not like to do.

      • boldyak

        so you really think that we have no more morality to protect? and RH Bill is your solution to robberies, child abuse etc?.If you don’t have that morality in you, please just do things that we think will not deteriorate the morality we think we have, RH Bill is not the solution to educate the masses…Population is an easy escape goat for a government incompetent to provide the proper solution…as if all of the evil of society is due to population….that to me is a complete ignorance…

      • joshmale2004

        Then can you cite any of the many provision under the RH Bill which you think will lessen more the morality of the people? I think you’re only knowledge about the RH Bill is about distribution and peddling around house to house condoms like it is a relief goods. If you want we can tackle one by one all the content from page 1 to 27 of the RH Bill and tell us what you don’t like or what section you think is immoral.

      • Jane Tan

        Oh we do. But, are we supposed to let those who strayed just whittle away their lives? Isn’t it also moral to think for those who cannot, to help those who need it?

    • ARIKUTIK

      I am not the church or supporter of any Bishop for the simple reason that I have a mind of my own. I am a parent who wish that my children will grow up with proper morals, believe in the sanctity of life, love for humankind and most of all faith in God. I know very well that PH government is corrupt taken over by Dynasty of crocodiles. They had robed my rightful share of bounties in this land of Filipinos. The corrupt Dynasty of the Rich, now wants to rob the soul of my children through RH bill FORCED SEX EDUCATION to be nailed on innocent children as young as 10 years old. This is not democracy but dictatorship to poor weak Filipinos to become sex maniacs with out morals. My right as parent to guide my children into the right path of life is now forcibly taken away by the corrupt government of the rich. RH bill IS DICTATORSHIP EMPOWERED TO MAKE LITTLE CHILDREN BECOME SEX MANIACS WITH OUT REGARD FOR THE SANCTITY OF LIFE. IT IS AN ENFORCED IMMORALITY. THE RIGHT OF PARENTS TO GUIDE THEIR CHILDREN IS FORCIBLY TAKEN AWAY. RH bill is EVIL.

      • joshmale2004

        Hindi mo ba alam na pabata ng pabata ang mga prostitutes? As young as 12 years old and even students now, many sideline as prostitutes for the extra money they can use for their personal needs. How did they know about sex? Off course you don’t know because they learn it the wrong way from their classmates, friends from higher grades, public internet, DVDs acquired thru piracy. Off cours your child of 10 will not tell you about their knowledge of sex at a young age. But I guarantee you, they know. And the best way to correct their misconception of sex that they learned from movies, is trhu proper sex education taught by a professional teacher. But still, you need to give your consent before they are allowed to attend this subject in school. So its up to you if you will just let your 10 year old grow up with the wrong knowledge of sex at an early age or counter that wrong knowledge with a proper sex education. It’s your choice and you are not dictated or forced to do.

      • ARIKUTIK

        Josh, an honest guy to reveal that RH bill Sex Education for 10 years olds is not mandatory but as you said > “need to give your (parent) consent before they are allowed to attend this (sex education) subject in school”. Very “Masky” provission as in it is SELECTIVE for whom sex subject for children is to be nailed. The poor children attends public school in which poor parents have “no say” in administration. The Rich children attends Private school in which rich parents have a say on administration simply because it is Private. This proves that RH bill Sex Education is SELECTIVE law to be nailed only into poor children in govt. administered public school. RH bill is a law of the corrupt Rich. The rich are exempted from poisonous pills and their children in Private School are exempted also from imorality of sex education for 10 years olds. RH bill is forced oppression of poor Filipinos.    

      • joshmale2004

        Arikutik, I don’t know why you insist on your notion that the poor will be forced. It is straight forward stated in the bill that for grade pupils, consent of parents will be secured before they are allowed to attend the sex ed subject. And this pertains more to government schools then private. It never said in the RH Bill that the private school parents will have more privilege to refuse than the poor ones. Stick to what the law is saying and don’t pretend to interpret what is not there. So it’s your choice. If you are poor and do not want your children to attend the subject, then don’t give your consent. As simple as that. 

      • ARIKUTIK

        It is not as simple as that. The poor children in public school will be coerce and intimidated to attend Sex education. They have no any other choice of school simply because they are poor. The Rich parents can dictate private school administration and have the means to choose a school. The government can dictate public school administration where the poor children are with out choice where to be schooled. RH bill sex education is for the poor ONLY to become haters of human life.  

      • joshmale2004

        Better you read the RH Bill so you will know when your rights are already being violated. As I said, if you do not give your consent, they can not coerce your child to attend without your permission as this is what the law says. If the school insist, they will be in violation and there is a corresponding liability with fine and imprisonment provided in the RH Bill. 

      • ARIKUTIK

        Ang kulitttttt…. It is the govt. who will coerce and intimidate the poor children in public school to attend Sex education. Now then, following your analogy > who will fine and imprison the government ? The govt. itself who is the one pushing for sex education ? Hey, be real and use intelligence with experience. This govt. is Corrupt, it is impossible to imprison itself. End of the argument, accept the truth. and i’m hungry too. unless you have something better to say.

      • joshmale2004

        I’m sorry. It’s you who can not understand. Government can not coerce the students. The Law provides the LGUs and DECs to implement the law. Read the last part of RH Bill and very clear any government unit in violation will be held liable. Why can’t Government imprison and erring government employee or department head? Tell me.

      • ARIKUTIK

        Joshmate is again showing a true color of honesty. The DECS is to implement the law and any Sex education teacher who fails to muster or refuse to net in poor children to attend Sex education is liable of punishment under RH law. Well, now it is clear that through treath of punishment, RH bill is forcibly enforced to everyone in what ever way. Anyone who counter attack will be kicked out from work or imprisoned as the case maybe. RH bill is dictatorship vieled with treath of incarciration in deep pits of sorrows. The children will be coerce by the teacher who is trembling in fear to lose a job or license of profession maybe.

Ni wala nga silang maipakitang kababaang loob, puro kahambugan. Wala rin silang tinutulong sa mga taong nangangailangan ng spiritual na tulong kasi lahat ng atensyon  nila ay nasa materyal at pansariling kapakapanan.

      Of all religions, sila lang ang hindi nagbabase ng sermon nila sa Bible. Unlike other religions na before they start the sermon, they will tell what book and verses they will base their sermon. Sa Catholic, basta ang sasabihin lang nila, eto ang sinabi ng panginoon pero di nila sasabihin kung saang verse sa Bible sinabi ng panginoon.

        tama, hindi nila sinasabi ang verse at kung minsan mali pa ang sipi o word na ginamit, at saka kakaunti at saka palaging iyon. kaya mahirap o mahabang panahon bago makakilala iyong tao sa tunay na Diyos. pero in fairness po marami ring nakakakilala sa Panginoon ng dahil sa mga effort nila.

  • accapistrano

    In the years when the Philippines was under tyrannical rule, there was a catholic movement in the other side of the planet already battling oppression, abuse of human rights and total disregard of basic human freedoms. It was called liberation theology. In the mid 1980’s it caught up with us and culminated with the blessed boldness of the good Cardinal Sin. He took a stand at the right time and under the right circumstances. And with the grace and blessing of Christ, he was heard by the people and so ended Philippine tyranny.

    Here lies the problem. The good Cardinal has been the archetype of priests, fighting the good fight. Every man of the catholic cloth now emulates him having realized that there is power in the pulpit. While living in the footsteps of Cardinal Sin is good, the same must be done at the right time and under the right circumstances. Priests should not always meddle with government when there is no need to do so, it only actually makes the priesthood look meddlesome and tiring. True, some of the issues today touch the tenets of the catholic faith. But then we are talking of government, and a government of all peoples, not just catholics.  To remind the lawmakers and the executive that laws are in conflict with the catholic faith is enough.  If they recognize the difference and moved by their faith they would not pass the law or repeal one already in place. If they don’t it means they are ready to face the judgment of the Catholic God or they did not even know the tenets of the faith because the priests are not effective in disseminating it. 

    We do not need a hundred Cardinal Sin wannabes in a time of peace. We need one in times of great moral depression and we already had that. Just hope that when the right time comes one with the moral high ground like him would be there and pray there are still catholics who believe.

    Now those hypocrites are singing a different tune after losing the RH battle.  Did they now threaten to campaign against RH politicians.  Pastoral letters and sermons were said attacking the RH politicians.  They even bragged about the Catholic vote.

  • PuncanMind

    If God is against the RH Bil, then I need not believe in Him anymore.  But I do believe that He is in favor of it because He knows that it is for the good of the people. It is only the priests who do not want this bill be passed for obvious reason: They want poor to remain poor, they knew that an educated society would not be easy to dictate upon. And they do not represent the true will of God.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

      God is not against RH Bill.  He supports it.  In the Book of Genesis, God commands:  “Go out and multiply and fill the earth but SUBDUE it.”  The problem with these Catholic leaders they don’t continue reading the verse with the word “subdue”.  Subdue means to overcome or control.  And that’s what God commanded.

    Eh bakit nga hindi magagalit to death ang mga Katolikong bishops at mga pari eh populatiion reduction ang isa sa main purpose ng RH bill

    Ang dahilan ng panggagaliiti ng ng mga mga mahal nating pari at obispo ay pera.:

    Pinaplano ka palang gawin bayad gastos na sa kasal  ang magulang mo sa kasal. Paglabas mo na sa mundong  ito: Gastos na sa binyag, kumpil at pamisa bawat birthday. Pagpatay kana bayad sa basbas at pamisa para mawala sa purgatoryo.. Idagdag ang offering gawat misa hanggang mamatay ka.

    Malaking pera ba ito o maliit ang mawawala sa kita ng simbahan sa bawat reduction ng populasyon??
