Overpopulation good for Filipinos, says bishop

NAGA CITY—Bishop Gilbert Garcera of the Diocese of Daet, the capital of  Camarines Norte, believes overpopulation has been advantageous to the  Philippines and to the world because it has increased the number of  overseas workers and migrants who could send remittances back home while  taking care of ageing people abroad and spreading the Christian faith.

Contrary to the aims of the reproductive health (RH) bill, Garcera said the huge Philippine population could be part of “God’s plan for Filipinos to be caregivers to ageing nations whose populations had become stagnant.”

He also said many Filipino women would make “good wives” for foreigners in countries that have low population growth.

Garcera said many countries such as Germany and the United States had a stable but ageing population that would need people to take care of them, and that purpose could be served by Filipinos.

“Filipinos have a big mission to the world. Every Filipino child born is a blessing to the world. Let’s look at the increase in our population in a more comprehensive sense,” the 53-year-old prelate told the Inquirer in an interview at an orphanage in this city that he visited on Thursday.

In light of the Christian faith, Garcera said, the big number of Filipinos should not be seen as a problem but as an opportunity to help other people in the world.

“Filipinos have a duty to take care of them,” he said.

He said that the overpopulation that breeds poverty was not a problem because poverty itself was not a problem.

He said poverty even brought people “closer” to God and was instrumental in realizing God’s plan for Filipinos to take care of other nationalities by inducing migration and working abroad.

Economically, he said, the country also benefits from the “mission” because the migrants and overseas Filipino workers send back money from working as caregivers.

“When you help poor people they help themselves too. This is the reason we have so many pedicab drivers, for instance. Everyone, when given the chance, will strive to earn a living,” he said.

In fact, he said, poor people were more willing to help compared to the rich. Hence, a poor person was not a problem, he said.

“We should stop looking at poor people as a problem,” he added.

He said the diaspora of Filipinos was also a way to spread the Christian faith.

“There was this story of a babysitter in Dubai who started singing the Ama  Namin (Our Father) as a lullaby to the Arab baby she was caring for. The Islamic parents of the child found the song too good that they started learning it, without knowing that it was a Christian prayer,” he said.

He said there would come a time when nations that have decreasing populations would rely on the care of Filipinos.

He said the problem in the country was neither overpopulation nor poverty but corruption and the unequal distribution of wealth.

He admitted though that not all provisions of the RH bill were bad, but he also believed there were some proponents and supporters of the bill who “were against human nature and against what God wants.”

    Are you saying ok lang maging OFW ang mga pinoy??  We should be working for the Philippines..

  • rolandtr

    Another ignoramus Bishop!

  • jurbinsky77

    What a sick, perverted assessment.

  • LabkoPinas

    Wake up, Catholic Church! So is poverty also good for the Philippines? Is the destruction of the family core because the parents have to leave for abroad to work also good for the Philippines? You are still living in the dark ages. You will also lose your followers as I am now having having a hard time convincing my children about your relevance. Mind you they also went thru catholic schools!

  • CyberPinoy

    good ?  so who will feed the less fortunate when the country could not provide work for everybody.  Stupid short sighted bishop!

  • 1stopC

    Overpopulation is good for them not the Filipinos.

  • Xrd

    this garcera has lost all the logic..It’s shocking why people of this kind become teachers of religion!

  • reden_312

    palibhasa hindi naranasan ng Paring ito paano bumuhay ng pamilya, mag alaga ng mga anak…hindi rin naranasan niya paano maging OFW…kaya yan sinabi niya… kung faith ang pag uusapan maraming Pilipino na rin ang iniwan ang kanilang katolikong paniniwala at lumipat ng ibang relihiyon…

    isa akong OFW pero it hurts to see our other kababayan working as maids, caregiver na ayaw naman talaga nila but they have to do it kasi kelangan nilang tustusan ang kanilang mga pamilya…

    The idiocy never ends, LOL….. What an ignoramus this Bishop Garcera is, so it is okay for him that we Filipinos become modern day slaves taking on jobs that citizens of the host country are not willing to take?

    Only idiots like Garcera thinks or is he even capable of rational thinking when he thinks we blame the poor people instead of why they are dehumanized caused by poverty. It is unchristian to subject quite a large number of our population in poverty and yet this bishop thinks it is a blessing, LOL……

    • EdDelaCruz

       Don’t be so quick to judge. One of these OFW maids or homeless children might change  the world.

      I think a BISHOP understands the bible and Christianity alot better than you do. Don’t be mad because god’s will is for Filipinos to be indentured servants. That is just being a sore loser. You can’t just dispute god’s will.
       If it was the other way around and other countries were sending their citizens here to change the diapers of our elderly then we we would be delighted.
      Let’s just make sure we have enough maids and prostitutes to satisfy the demand here at home before we go exporting anymore quality OFWs.

  • Jarred Pulido

    The jokes will never end. Idiots like this is the cause of so many of our countrymen are poor and ignorant. Leaders fit for the middle ages.

  • ManongOsang

    Itong DEBATE ng RH really FINALLY SHOWED Filipinos that Priests are JUST like you & me, REGULAR Human beings.

    the only difference is they went to school to become Priests.

    But other than that, THEY Make Mistakes, Make Very Bad judgements, & in some cases- are Very Capable of being UNCHRISTIAN- just like everyone else!

    When I lived in America for over a decade- LAGING tanong ng mga american Catholic priests sa akin is ‘ WHY DO FILIPINOS regard Catholic priests as some HIGH & MIGHTY, ALMOST SUPER SPECIAL PERSON & Almost practice BLIND FAITH when it comes to catholic priests”???

    Kasi sabi nila, americans & european catholics treat priests with the utmost respect. But there is also a limit na they still view priests as humans.

    Pero sa maraming Pinoy, dahil sa Cultural natin & deep catholic indoctrination- We Look at Priests as some CLOSE to PERFECT, VERY HIGH AUTHORITY, CAN DO NO WRONG person!

    Maraming pa rin Pinoy at TAKOT na TAKOT pag tinakot ng mga pari.

    Many Kababayans become LITERALLY IRRATIONAL pag napunta na sa Religion.

    Their Fear of disobeying the church or not following what priests say is their Highest Fear in life

    GISING NA !!!

    Overpopulation is good, provided the Church feed those kids borne by poor families who cannot support them. What do you say CBCP?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4R3GZTGML26TV2VGS6RVHP2THM Fred

    I will only believe that poverty is not a problem (according to Bishop Garcera) when the catholic church and other religious sects have indeed a regular feeding program; have sponsorship in livelihood programs; have scholarship program for deserving students of poor families; have other such programs to eliminate poverty.
    Mayroon ba kayo nyan? Nasaan? Kailan pa?

    I think the bishop is right.
    This is good educational assessment.
    If you have Many Money, you are happy.
    Many is merrier and Many is better.
    Better have many money and many people.

  • innit1

    You have disrespected Filipinos and Filipino women!! You are a disgrace to Filipino people. We do not want Filipinos to work as abused domestic helpers and caregivers and prospect for foreigners because of ample supply of Filipino women.

    WE WANT FILIPINOS TO BE EDUCATED AS SCIENTISTS, DOCTORS AND TEACHERS OR ENGINEERS. We want Filipinos in the Philippines to employ caregivers and helpers from other countries.

    We do not want to be called the 12th most populous nation in the world but we want to be called one of the, most respected and educated population in the world.

    napakababaw naman ang pangarap nito para sa mga Pilipino. poverty in the Philippines can be reduced and can be controlled. it just takes political will as what Mr Aquino has done (by not listening to these preists)

  • mucho_cheapo

    Bishop, umalis ka naman sa Cumbento at lumabas sa kalsada para makita mo at maamoy ang kahirapan ng mga taong nauuto ninyo. Your olfactory sense needs to smell something other than incense and aromatic candles. It’s time for you to smell the STINK brought about by poverty. You’ve been out of touch with reality for a long time..

    Palibhasa kasi kapag mas maraming mangmang sa pilipinas eh mas marami kayong mauuto… well, too bad for you boy lovers…

    Your strangle hold on this poor country is about to end, CBCP. You’ve continually sown ignorance to the Filipino people…Now it’s your time to reap, so prepare to reap the whirlwind.

  • quirinomayer

    The words of this pig is stomach-turning.

    Does this stupid Pharisee understand the price we have to pay for  the Philippines to be overpopulated and to remain that way? Does he not see the street kids, the people who live under bridges and along esteros,  and those who pick trash in the dump sites and eat food recycled from the restaurants? Does he see the effects of grinding poverty, the kids who will never see the inside of schools who are condemned to relive the miserable lives of their parents and ancestors? Does he not see the great price we have to pay for our millions of OFWs – the OFWs who get maltreated and even murdered, the broken families and the children who become delinquent due to the  absence of a parent?

    The mind of this Padre Damaso has been deranged due to his bigotry.

    “Filipino women would make “good wives” for foreigners in countries that have low population growth.” – Bishop Gilbert Garcera

    lintik na pari to ah!  ewan ko lang kung isa ito sa mga kampun ni mamang judas o ano.

    “the big number of Filipinos should not be seen as a problem but as an opportunity to help other people in the world.” – Bishop Gilbert Garcera

    that’s a very good deduction father, such analogy can make you a hero to many human traffickers pestering our society.  religious hypocrisy at its finest moments (no pun intended).

    “We should stop looking at poor people as a problem,” – Bishop Gilbert Garcera

    kindly tell an employee of the dswd that thought and i will not be surprised if you’ll get smacked in the face your holiness.

    “problem in the country was neither overpopulation nor poverty but corruption and the unequal distribution of wealth.” – Bishop Gilbert Garcera

    wrong father, overpopulation and poverty are the prime roots of corruption, and unequal distribution of wealth is the by-product of that corruption.

  • MangAkong

    If ONLY the Bishop can step out of His Comfort zones into the stark reality of poverty that unplanned children brings about and the many subsequent social detriments that this situation brings about. We need men of religion to consider the physical as well as mental health of his flock not just conformance to conventions that is no longer pragmatic.

  • blainz

    My goodness! How disconnected is the church from reality?

    Cleaning up after old white folk is God’s plan for Filipinos? Filipinas to make “good wives” for birthing more Americans and Germans?

    There are so many Filpinos wishing their parent or spouse were here to spend their holidays with, families intact, yet all this prelate can talk about are remittances and evangelization. If this doesn’t wake up poor people to the fact that the church looks at them as fungible resources, nothing will.

    How I wish Rizal were alive to tell these ridiculously insensitive priests off. Good thing his legacy seems to have awakened the current generation. Down with these Damasos!

  • Randy1983

    Mr. Bishop, in what century do you still live in? Your brand of Catholicism has turned me into a cafeteria catholic. I’m not proud of that, but the church’s recent failed attempt to block the RH bill is proof that people, even the poor, are finally waking up to the reality of how hard it is to raise kids. Me? I never supported the bill. Why? Because it does NOT go far enough. However, if the bill can eliminate retards like you from being born in the 1st place, then great success! If it eliminated me 30 hrs. ago, then so be it. You are a moron to your flock and you know it….:(

    • cogito728sum

      They will go lower than this, watch it my friend.  They have gone lower than this before and there’s no reason they can’t go lower further now that they are relentlessly after dominating the secular authorities.  They know that they can get away, as far as the people are concerned, with their irrationalities.  They know that at the end of the day, people will bow and kneel before them for benediction.  Watch out for those holier than thou pontificators and you can see for yourself how many of our compatriots still allow themselves to be willingly exploited in the name of mythology.  Indeed who was it who said that: “Walang mangloloko sa walang nagpapaloko.”  Thank you and Happy New Year to you!

    1) “…Filipino women would make “good wives” for foreigners in countries that have low population growth.”-by Bishop Garcera
    2) “…overseas workers and migrants who could send remittances back home while  taking care of ageing people abroad and spreading the Christian faith.”-By Bishop Garcera

    Oh, My Gee!!!. are those cra///zy statements coming from a literate and supposedly moralistic individual? It looks to me, they were uttered by a stu//pid, know-nothing first grader who looks at lollipop candy as the most delicious foods in the world, unaware that it will destroy his teeth? OK, let’s digest the 2 statements.

    In saying that filipino women would make a good wife to foreigners that have low population, then why are we letting them work as DH only, why not who///res? They went there to work, not to find husbands. If one found a husband, it’s fate and being a “good wife” is out of the equation. Is gracera aware that many filipinas are going home from abroad a battered and abused wife of foreigners, some are even converted to prosti/ by their husbands? 

    I’m sure garcera will be very pleased to know that the philippines can become the who///re capital of the world by his statement. And to sweeten the pot, let’s advertise in Yahoo or Google using CBCP as the medium and the bishops as the pimps. That would be awesome!!!

    Because Garcera is so du//mb, he is not aware that most pinays are working abroad not because they want to take care of other nationalities but because of circumstances right in their own home. Poverty is forcing them to work abroad and most of them have so many children to feed and have elderly relatives (parenst/lolo/lola ) to take care of. Why would they pamper other children and parents first when they have their own large family to take care? Garcera, being so du///mb is out of the loop. 

    Spreading the christian faith is not the job of a OFW. That’s the job of the priests. And to allow OFW to spread the faith is like leading a blind leading another blind. OFW has little knowledge about faith and that is very dangerous as 1 Chinese philosopher said. Garcera, try to spread your faith in KSA and see where you’re going to land at. Your example of a DH singing Ama namin as lullaby and the Muslim boss liking it is already spreading the Christian faith? Oh my Gee!!!

    Anyway, the bishops are running out of ideas and arguments after losing in RH issue and are now aware that their control over the people has also disappeared. As a result, they are losing their mind too. Their above statements are proof to that.

    That’s the most stupid reason.  Overpopulation increases OFWs?  In the first place, why do Filipinos go abroad to work?  To feed their families back home because they cannot survive in the country with so many children to feed.  OMG, these Bishops are out of their minds.

    caregiver –  the best word ever invented for slaves of foreign dominions. Bishop, would you know that many of them allowed themselves, or were lured, or forced into being sex objects? So you prefer them to be caring for other people while neglecting their own families.

    Overpopulation, by the word itself signifies inability to be supported….it means excess, unwanted. The bill is now a law to the cheers of responsible people. Stop the shittt!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/G7AHS4SX7TZDVNZS2AQHAAKYDE Pascal C

      Wow Wow Wow. By far the majority of these caregivers are hard working and sending most of their money back to The Philippines. Please do not take a few isolated cases out of the many hundreds of thousands. I have many friends working overseas in domestic or as caregivers/nurses.
      The only abuse or disrespect any of them get is from their family back here. There husbands go out and drink and have many lady friends with their sudden wealth. There sons and daughters and even cousins get sent to college. If the money does not come in time (maybe due to job change) the relatives get mad demanding: ‘Where’s My Money’. Many families are getting well over Php20,000 pm and they always ask for more. This is not in all cases; but in the majority of cases I see before my eyes.
      Back to this other bishop. I do not know why the newspapers are giving them so many column inches. These guys are not elected representatives. They are supposed to be ‘doing’ religion. The statement of this one here is disrespectful to everybody, including overseas caregivers and Filipinas who are happily married to foreigners. I wish the inquirer would stop publishing their total crap statements day after day. The bishops probably think that ‘bad publicity is better than no publicity’.

    FYI,walang magandang dala ang OFW sa bansa natin,sa pamilyang Filipino at sa mga kabataan.napipilitan lang maging OFW ang mga Filipino dahil yun ang option nila for greener grass.pero kung tutuusin,kagat sa patalim ang pagiging OFW.

    ang padalang remittance ng OFW,bagamat nakakatulong sa pamilyang Filipino at sa foreign currency needs ng bansa,ito naman isang factor sa inflation sa ekonomiya at masama ang epekto sa kultura natin dahil nawawala ang self-reliance ng mga miyembro ng pamilya..higit sa lahat,dini-deprive ng pagiging OFW ang pagsasama-sama ng isang pamilya at nawawalan ng gabay sa paglaki ang kabataan dahil sa absence ng magulang.pwera pa ditto,naka expose sa pang-aabuso at delikadong trabaho ang mga OFW.

    mag-isip ka naman,bishop…

    This bishop is insane.
    I grew in the same province where this bishop sits but later on moved to the North due to the lack of better opportunities in that province.I am an OFW. And being an OFW far away from your loved ones and your family, puts you most often than not, to an immeasurable emotional grief and lonesomeness. The sad feeling of not seeing your children grow. Seeing your children grow without their father to guide and support them. And there are even times we tend to be slowly forgotten by the society we belong to.I already started thinking of coming back home. The chances of an OFW to become successful is just maybe 5%. Millions of us barely makes both ends meet. And when the time for us to finally come home arrives, it becomes very difficult to reintegrate ourselves into the society we left.This bishops speak for the others when they have never even experience the pain of leaving their family behind and not knowing what lies beneath when we finally reach our destinations abroad – While they sit, eat and drink all in the comfort and luxury of being served by their poor servants.Indeed, Padre Damaso’s has multiplied a bunch nowadays.And I totally disagree that not those poor people living on the streets are those who gives more than the wealthy. It’s the middle working class who gives more than anybody else by paying the government dues, painfully via deduction in their wages.

    Kaya nga ba nun palang na-appoint yan bilang kapalit na bishop ni Bishop Almoneda eh I can’t show any honor or respect to him. He even didn’t do well while he is still in the CBCP – I worked there. And I am a Bicolano.

Ang mga pag-iisip at pananalitang isinahalimbawa ni Gacera ay pawang hindi nakakatulong sa pagtatag ng galang sa ating simbahan at at ng mga sacerdote.  Hindi naman silang lahat ay katulad ni Garcera.   But anyway, inihaw……….

    Subukan ni Bishop Garcera na magkaroon ng pamilya pagkatapos maging OFW siya nang maranasan niya ang hirap na mawalay sa kanyang pamilya habang nagtatrabaho sa ibang bansa. Kahit magkaroon na lang siya ng anak na OFW nang malaman niya ang pakiramdam ng isang magulang na araw-araw iniisip ang kalagayan ng minamahal na anak na iniaalay ang dugo at pawis sa ibayong dagat.

    Palibhasa hindi siya pamilyadong tao kaya ang lakas ng loob niyang sabihin ang mga ito. Nakakabobo at nakakasuka.

    Overpopulation is good only for the catholic church and the pervs running it.  But it’s a disaster for the country who could hardly provide the basic social services its citizens need. The only entity who would profit from overpopulation is the catholic church that callously sucking the poor Filipinos dry for centuries.

  • Hey_Dudes

     You begin to wonder if all bishops think in the same geographical relevance as this bishop Garcera.  One would hope not but if indeed this is the kind of thinking members of CBCP do spouses, then it is not us whom God should help but rather these fruitcakes and nuts that are dime a dozen in the country.

    Perhaps this bishop is not aware of what is happening abroad – Westbro Baptist Chruch somewhere in the USA where close to 450,000 plus signatures petitioning government to regard this church as a “Hate Group?’  This church is “anti” almost of anything reminiscent of the Philippine catholic church known also for it’s ANTI stance against government.

    We hope, soon, the people of the Philippines will also put this church on notice their job is not politicking but doing God’s work.  You cannot advocate Filipinos to produce more Filipinos so they will become the world’s butlers, maids etc. etc.

    Shame on you catholic church bishops.

Mind your flock’s souls – surely there is much work for them in that arena, what with corruption so widespread, hypocrisy so endemic, honesty and integrity so lacking.

    The good prelate oversimplifies on overpopulation. For one, is he aware of the social and personal costs of being OFWs when a parent or parents are separated from their families in search of the proverbial greener pasture? And if “poverty itself was not a problem”, why doesn’t the good prelate remove himself from his well-appointed abode and relocate to the slums so he can stare poverty in the face everyday?

    a.  ipagbawal ang mga sermon na tumatalakay ng RH bill.  Kakainis nang makinig sa sermon ng mga pari, palagi nalang pumupunta sa RH bill
    b. bigyang karapatan ang gobyerno na tumingin sa mga ari arian ng simbahan.  Aba tax free lahat uan.
    c. Ipatupad ang curriculum ng public schools hinggil sa planned parenthood sa Catholic schools.

    Bishop Gilbert Garcera of the Diocese of Daet, the capital of  Camarines Norte talks about unequal distribution of wealth as the problem. The reason why you work hard to send your kids to school is for them to have a good life. If you have so many kids, some cannot even feed themproperly – forget about getting a good education. A lugaw a day is luxury. That is why if parents can decide how many kids they can afford, it is good for the family and good for the country.
    You do not want to see kids running around begging for food, some are sickly and no place to stay at night. It bleeds your heart also knowing that you cannot really help. So giving people the decision on how many kids they can feed properly is a step in the right direction.

  • padre_damaso

    to claim that the Philippines is overpopulated may be debatable.

    But to claim we are better off overpopulated, that it does the country good because we are caring for the world and spreading christianity, notwithstanding the drawbacks of working abroad such as the not being able to raise your kids yourself; risking marriages while your partner needs to be away for long years; being homesick, depressed, and away from your loved ones just so you could send them to school — is just the height of insensitivity, if not stupidity.

  • AllinLawisFair

    This is the most absurd idea I have read in my life, and that coming from a bishop.

    Why does he not set up a recruitment agency where the millions of poor people in this country can apply for jobs abroad? 
    He will surely attract a thousands of applicants by virtue of his being a bishop. 

    And while at that he can also expand his business by giving additional service as a partnership agency for foreigners looking for Filipinos to be their wives. This will also surely sell like hot cakes because he will officiate himself in the marriage and thereby earn a few dollars more. 

    His advertisement slogan would run, “Filipnas would make good wives for foreigners.”

    And because of this, the world will someday be populated by half-Filipinos whose race will spread in all its corners.

    What a Damasonian monster this bishop has become!

Does he have an idea how frightful and hard it will be for someone to go and work on a foreign land and be away from your families?? Why do we have Christians leaders like this with all their illogical and ” unchristian” statements??

  • maylah1969

    I totally agree with the good bishop, I was an overseas Iran worker in 1989 and sent my kids to school from this kind of work and now they are all professionals in the U.S.. We are also the new Israel, evangelizing the world through our domestic helpers. Muslim countries will not issue visas to priests, the task fell in the hands of our women to let them hear the songs of praise and our prayers in their own homes when they care for their children. In fact, a royal Kuwaiti prince converted to Christianity and many others upon learning, hearing and reading the Bible and from other Christian brothers and sisters who sacrificed to bring the message of faith. I prepare US income tax and I find it interesting that my clients, mostly Filipino professionals in the U.S. makes an average donation of $8,000 a year to their church.  Matthew 4:4 “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

  • WAJ

    This a very stupid remarks made by Bishop Garcera; “Over population that breeds poverty was not problem because poverty itself was not a problem”.

    So, it is OK for him to have poor children without proper nourishment, health, education to loiter the street as a beggar as long as the country is overpopulated. Not all people in the Philippines would be able to obtain work as OFW, it requires education, training, and money. The poor does not have that privilege.

     With the shameless passage of this law that employs legal “force”
    against certain sectors to work for the “greater good” and to violate
    their freedom of conscience, it follows that the government may also be
    justified/authorized to pass similar welfare measures in the future
    like, say, Housing For All Act or Food for Everybody Act.
     If the government can force the so-called pharmaceutical cartel
    (primarily caused by our protectionism and welfare regulations) to sell
    medicines to Filipino consumers for a government-discounted sales price,
     it can also use the same tyrannical power against other
    goods-producing, job-creating industries and companies.

    What a total waste of years educating oneself to end up with such very myopic, simplistic, and unacceptable justification for being born.  Is the Filipino woman only good for being a housemaid or caregiver in a foreign land?  Or to be matched to a foreigner she may not love?  Just to comply with the church’s requirement that the more the merrier it is for its existence?  Or that indeed religion poisons the mind for this insensitive bishop to utter those words in the very place–orphanage–that should have opened his heart and mind to the irrationality of his arguments.

    If the Filipino woman is predestined by this bishop’s God to be good only as housemaid or caregiver, then the more justification it is for the RH Law.  This irresponsible statement from this bishop only irrefutably shows the contempt these men of the cloth have to the opposite sex.  It only proves the exploitative nature of their mind, the misogynistic nature of religion, and their shameful downgrading of the capacity of the woman to advance beyond menial task.  If there is any more
    convincing eye opener to the irrelevance of these bishops than this, I wonder what would it be.

    If the article is read in proper perspective. It can be seen that the writter is putting words in Bishops mouth. Making his own (writters) interpretations to malign a servant of God. This is a despicable way of supporting Penoy RH bill. Another swindling article that did not say anything beneficial from RH law but only maligning a bishop to hide the evil of RH law targeting the oppressed poor. The exact qouted words of the Bishop IS > “Filipinos have a big mission to the world”. I would not dis agrre with that because everyone born have mission in this world. Even the corrupt politicians or rich hacienderos oppressing farmers have mission in this world. And that is to show to the world what evils do to mankind. That evils are despicable creatures. Greedy evils are mostly the rich, especially hacienderos who live by drinking the blood of weak poor farmers. Whom shall we believe the words of greedy rich or the words of one who’s only wish is to value every life to live with morallity for the salvation of mankind. Only greedy evils will want others to die and RH bill is next to killing the poor farmers.

       I agree from some of the statements from the Catholic church I think they should spend some time living with the squatters and other poor people. to see what overpopulation is . really like  I think it maybe a good idea to educate the Bishops before they are ordained as this Bishop is obviously an ignorant man and needs to spend time in the r.real world

        The corrupt govrnment officials should live among the poor to see what it is like to be Jobless. The bishops were always with the poor for charity works.

    KAPAG MAY BISHOP,MARAMING MAHIRAP.

    No wonder most Catholic countries colonized by Spain have not progressed economically. 

    The bishop’s claims are too dumb to respond to. Coming from someone who is not under pressure to earn, since he is tax-exempt and has no family to support, from someone who knows nothing about economics or business, from someone who is so detached from realities, those remarks are really, really stupid.

    The church will lose more followers due to this.

      Kapag ang gobyerno ay corrupt. Tiyak maghihirap ang boung bayan. Alam ng mga Pilipino ang katotohanang eto dahil sila ay pinamunuan ng mayayamang pamilyang corrupt tulad ng mga hacienderos. Meron bang haciendero na may puso para sa mahihirap ? Ang mga hacienderong eto ay sumipsip sa dugo ng naghihirap na magsasaka. Isang katotohanang hindi mapa subalian. Si Penoy ay lahi ng haciendero, merong ba siyang ginawang naka buti sa kalagayan ng mga magsasaka. Hampas lupa ang tingin nila sa mahihirap na Pilipino. Kaya OK lang sa kanila na piliting uminom ng nakakalason RH pills ang mga mahihirap na Pilipino.

    The Philippines is not Germany or United States. Only rich countries, not the poor countries, have the right to ignore their population growth rate. Besides, it is not advisable for the Philippines to have a growing population because many die during the onslaughts of typhoons. And the government cannot address all their basic needs so that others just die of hunger.

Poverty is not a problem? try reaching the age of 21 without money, how do you feed yourself medicate yourself?  A lot of children die because of simple sickness because they don’t have money!  It’s like saying go and reproduce and die like flies!

    “poor people were more willing to help compared to the rich” –Is this based on experience father? I for one can point out that most schools in the Philippines are owned by the CATHOLIC CHURCH. So I believe you MUST be FILTHY RICH!  Where do our tuition fees go father? Do you even pay tax for it? You won’t even let your students take the exam if they haven’t paid their tuition! Now you are saying that POVERTY is NOT a PROBLEM??? I think you are just playing with words to suit the situation.

    The Catholic churches hasn’t even dipped from their coffers to give to the poor.  They always ask from the community.

        In the aftermath of the storm, I was working by distributing medicines and food in Los Banos and area, I talked to a nun in an evac centre, and she informed me that church only helps with sending nursing nuns, but any medicine and food they provide is what is given by the local community.

      First of all, India and China aren’t top world economies as of today. you couldn’t say that they will be because no one had foreseen recession before it happened. World economic standing is a dynamic thing where there is no certain standing to happen. 
      Second of all, India and China aren’t good economies because of population. They are good because of those nations’ culture. Kids are pressured to succeed and compete in their studies, even as they pursue their careers. Its only a coincidence that they have a huge population. Its not the definitive factor for their economic growth. To this bishop, I don’t know what is on his mind. Maybe being a soldier for a mind-controlling cause is what did him in. This is what’s bad with religion is the leaders. They proclaim these opinions without professional backup. He’s just a priest, not an economist and definitely not an expert on that field. So how could he say anything about this topic? No reason at all. It could possibly be because Catholicism is dying around the world and what religion is concerned with is survival. They do not want to go down without a fight. They’re continually fighting through empty morals and opinions that they should just keep to themselves. Its direction is shifting from the better to the shittier.

      P.S. There’s a difference between finding survival for the institution itself and being an institution for the spiritual side of the people.

        “India and the Philippines reap benefits of the demographic dividend of having younger populations,” stated the Indian market-liberal Barun Mitra, Population control is often based on the argument that it is necessary for socio-economic development, and that parents are unable to rationally decide on their family size. The downside of enforced population targets however is that it not leads to an aging population but also to distortions in the gender ration because of a preference for sons, and to greater violence against women. “China is the first country in history to become old before becoming rich,” Barun Mitra stated. “A younger population is needed for a society to come up with new and innovative ideas, and also to able to care for older citizens. India and the Philippines will see this effect in the near future.” .both CHINA & INDIA sees that POPULATION is a foundation of a great nation..

    “He said that the overpopulation that breeds poverty was not a problem because poverty itself was not a problem.”

    According to my teacher and the Church, poverty and similar problems come from the lack of justice. So how is the lack of justice not a problem? I thought that God is the “epitome of justice”, so I doubt that he would be pleased with such injustice.

    “He also said many Filipino women would make “good wives” for foreigners in countries that have low population growth.”

    “Garcera said many countries such as Germany and the United States had a stable but ageing population that would need people to take care of them, and that purpose could be served by Filipinos.”

    This man is merely reducing Filipinos into objects of economic stability. We are not objects, we are human. Again, according to my CL teacher and the Church, people should not be treated as objects because we are more than that due to our intellect and our value in this world.

    So what will it be? What should I believe in now (since I’m a believer) when the organization that should promote God isn’t even following it’s teachings? I guess it’s true that while the God is definitely good, the same can’t be said for its people — especially the ones running it.

  • AntonioPeYangIII

    The number of kids and when to have them should be ultimately the choice of a married couple or, failing that, the choice of the woman. 

    Saying they should breed like rabbits for the sake of some misguided sense of economic prosperity is tantamount to positive eugenics, which I find to be hilariously ironic given that these know-nothing priests love to lambast the supposed “eugenic agenda” of people who support women’s reproductive rights.

    So he’s trying to say that we’re just worthy as caregivers in other countries. He doesn’t expect us to have white collar jobs and high paying careers as CEOs or Managers.

    He’s trying to imply that if we go to another country. We’re Caregivers, not Tourists or Foreigners. So I imagine a European Englishman sees us… he’ll say… Hello caregiver! Rather than Hello Asian dude or… oh, a Filipino!

    You Garcera have my salute! Now go quit being a Bishop and prove what you just said! ^__^

    SUMMARY: Gusto ni Bishop na maraming Pinoy ang naghihirap na napipilitang lumuwas ng bansa upang magpunas ng pwet ng mga dayuhan bilang caregiver at maging pokpok ang mga Pinay all in the name of spreading the Catholic faith. Gusto nya lahat ng mga Pinoy maging OFW na lang instead of magkaroon ng kabuhayan dito.

    irrational comment from a Bishop… comparing the stature of “us” as the poor that to think to take care for each other and that makes us as the caregiver to the world… toink!!!… matagal na siguro nanatiling masarap ang buhay nitong bishop na ito at di na lang bumalik sa pagiging misyunaryo at mabuksan muli ang kanyang mga mata sa katotohanan…

    when I heard the NEWS on the first day of SIMBANG GABI and the TOPIC was about RH Bill I’m very disappointed I want to COMPLETE the SIMBANG GABI as a SOLEMN but hearing that news I said to myself I don’t need to go to church or completing the SIMBANG GABI anymore because instead of teaching the GOSPEL this Priest makes the Filipino BELIEVED what the ESPANIARD  do to US in the PAST and make us IDIOT and GRAB our wealth, freedom, mind and soul believing that they’re more SOLEMN than anybody

    as of now we have a lot of SAINTS but the question was are they chosen by Jesus/almigthy god or they’re chosen by human as a saint to make sure that these people will never turned their back on christian faith and the financial support stay intact or what?

    I’m still a Catholic Christian but I never go to church anymore because of these kind of PREACHING more of POLITICAL not closer to JESUS but Closer to other SAINTS that chosen by HUMAN BEING..!!

      I’ve also stopped attending Mass.  Let me tell you why.  At the height of the Marcos-Cory election campaign when I attended Mass in Baclaran Church during the greeting “Peace be with you”, the priest told the audience:  “When you greet the person beside you, be sure he’s not a Marcos loyalist.”

The State shall protect and promote the right to health of women especially mothers in particular and of the people in general and instill health consciousness among them.

      The more you write the more your ignorance is exposed. China and India have huge populations, true, but you surely could not produce any evidence that the progress of these countries is because of their high population.

      Also It is natural for China and India to have more citizens because they have a huge territory. Now Let us look at India-your example. True India has good GDP but still their people are suffering intense poverty. Walk through the streets of Mumbai and you will ask yourself if this really is a progressive countries with all the homeless around.

       China did not became rich because of their population… i fact china has a “one child” policy where parents are allowed only one kid because they know that overpopulation is not going to be good for their country.

        open your mind my friend..china is abandoning one child policy..& india..Population Growth? No Problem, Says Indian Think Tank “India and the Philippines reap benefits of the demographic dividend of having younger populations,” stated the Indian market-liberal Barun Mitra, Population control is often based on the argument that it is necessary for socio-economic development, and that parents are unable to rationally decide on their family size. The downside of enforced population targets however is that it not leads to an aging population but also to distortions in the gender ration because of a preference for sons, and to greater violence against women. “China is the first country in history to become old before becoming rich,” Barun Mitra stated. “A younger population is needed for a society to come up with new and innovative ideas, and also to able to care for older citizens. India and the Philippines will see this effect in the near future.” .both CHINA & INDIA sees that POPULATION is a foundation of a great nation

    This isn’t very nice, the bishop is suggesting we enter into some sort of industrial sized breeding program so we can ship people out of the country to work, to fill the beds of foreign men and act as unpaid missionaries?
    It is this sort of inane statement from the Church that does not endear many to the faith. The bishop holds a very unique position, he has zero responsibility, he does not have to toil to put bread on his table, he leads a cloistered life from cradle to grave, during which time he gathers no sense of reality whatsoever. And what part will the bishop be playing in this breeding program? As a woman, I will not be treated like some breeding sow Mr Bishop just to fill the pews and coffers of your Church, so keep your rosaries off of my ovaries-

    The Inquirer should be ashamed of this article.  The bishop NEVER SAID that “overpopulation good for Filipinos”. That’s the journalist’s words.  That is what the journalist says the bishops says. That is not what the bishop said.  We do not know what the bishop said since most of this article is the journalist’s words not the bishops.

    The journalist even re-writes what the bishop said about poverty!  He says “We should stop looking at poor people as a problem”, not “poverty itself was not a problem”. The latter is the journalists words.

    This is an appalling violation of basic journalism standards. Shame, shame, shame on Jonas Cabiles Soltes and the Inquirer!  Jonas Cabiles Soltes should be fired immediately!

Tama naman ang sinabi nya sa nangyari sa mga kanluranin bansa na di na lumago ang kanilang population, Bukas sila para sa mga immigrant, bakit dahil kailangan nila na madagdagan ang kanilang mamamayan para mapanatili ang paglago ng kanilang ekonomiya. 

    Di naman talaga over populated ang Pilipinas, mali lang ang priority ng mga programa ng government umpisa mula pa noong nakalipas na pamahalaan. Tama nga yung flagship program ng isang datihan politiko na kanyang tinawag na “PROMDI”, nagsiksikan ang mga tao sa syudad samantala sa province nakatiwangwang lang ang mga di napakinabangan mga lupain. Dapat yan ang tutukan ng goberno, balik probensya, bigyan ng attentioin ang probensya.

        The point is, it is THEIR problem. Kailangan bang solusyunan ng Pilipinas ang problema ng mga ibang bansa when we have problems of our own i.e. overpopulation?

        At kahit naman ipadala mo sa probinsya ang mga tao sa Manila, sila naman ang bumabalik. Kahit unequal distribution of wealth pa ang nangyayari, the fact still remains that overpopulation is one of our biggest problems.

        I-donate kaya ng Simbahang Katolika ang yaman nila para equal rin? Magbayad rin kaya sila ng tax katulad ko at ng libo-libong mamamayan na nagpapakuba kakatrabaho para talagang fair? Whaddyathink?

      • josefe38

        Correction, di ko sinabi ang unequal distribution of wealth, ang sinabi ko unequal distribution of government projects. Bakit nagsiksikan sa urban center, dahil konti lang ang government program na nakalaan sa provinces na magbigay ng mas maraming opportunities sa mga mamamayan.

      • مثبت فکر کنید

        Ok, ok, unequal distribution of “government projects” it is. 

        Nagsisiksikan sa urbanidad ang mga tao dahil katulad ng paniniwala mo na mas ikauunlad ng Pilipinas ang pagpapadala ng OFWs sa ibang bansa, iniisip ng mga probinsyano na ikauunlad nila at ng mga pamilya nila ang pagpunta ng Maynila.At hindi pa rin ako maka-get over sa pagsang-ayon mo na gawing “solution” ang lahing Pinoy sa problema ng ibang bansa sa underpopulation.. Nakakatawa talaga. LOL

      kelan na icoconsider na hindi pa overpopulated ang Pilipinas? kapag wala nang mataniman ng binhi para pagkain ng bansa? Kapag wala nang matirahan ang mga hayop at halaman sa Pilipinas. Mind you, hindi lang tao nakatira sa Pilipinas.

      kung nagbabasa ka ng mga academic books, makikita mo ang “adverse effect” sa over reliance ng mga ekonomiya sa mga remittances. Nakita eto nung panahon ng nakaraang administrasyon. Lumalakas lamang ang ekonomiya kapag pasko at mababa ang halaga ng piso. Ang tanong, paano sa mga panahong malakas ang ekonomiya? Sisirain ba natin ang ekonomiya natin para lang maging number 1 care giver tayo sa bansa?

        What evidence do you have that this bishop wants such a thing?  This article is about this individual bishop after all.  Show me a quote where he says what you claim he wants.

      • joshmale2004

        “Bishop Gilbert Garcera of the Diocese of Daet, the capital of  Camarines Norte, believes overpopulation has been advantageous to the  Philippines and to the world because it has increased the number of  overseas workers and migrants who”
        I did not quote him. But read again his statement above. He said “overpopulation is advantageious….”. this statement is “En Toto”, without classifying which part of the population he is referring to is advantageous. Very simple to understand his statement to mean overpopulation as a whole and this is whether legitimate, illegitimate, children bourne out of rape, or wedlock, they still form our population. That’s why your Bishop friend is talking without thinking as to the effect of his statement to our society.

        Now will you tell us what he really meant when he said those things? Hulaton ko imo sabat.

      • BruceInIloilo

        Um, this is not a court.

        Hearsay is second hand information.  What we have here is what journalist says the bishops says.  There are few actual quotes from the bishop.  In plain English (not the legalize of lawyers) that is hearsay.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/BUBQZZX75RSSBO7GUEVTI4NAIU Onel

        Wrong. It is not hearsay when the one writing about it actually heard what the bishop said. That’s what we call “personal knowledge”, which is the exact opposite of hearsay.

        And it’s not “legalize”, it’s “legalese”.

        And the Rules of Court is applicable here in defining the word “hearsay” since it provides for the generally accepted definition of the word.

        And please brush up on what we call in high school as “context clues”. You need it very badly.

    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

  • BruceInIloilo

    Show me one quote where the bishop used the word “overpopulation”.  He is never quoted in this article using that word.  Stop putting words into bishops’ mouths. That’s lesson number 1 for honest journalists — report what your interviewee actually said not what you want them to say.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/BUBQZZX75RSSBO7GUEVTI4NAIU Onel

      Regardless of whether or not the bishop ever mentioned the word “overpopulation”, such proposition can be implied from the statements he made. You are just nitpicking while ignoring the totality of the thought of his words. We are not that stupid not to know what he really meant. Now go home and plant kamote.

      • BruceInIloilo

        “can be implied from the statements he made”  

        What statements? What words? He is barely quoted in the article!  Maybe it can be implied by his statements but we are never given that opportunity to judge for ourselves.  We are not told what he actually said.

        “You are just nitpicking while ignoring the totality of the thought of his words.” 

        Again, what words?  Show me is actual word.  I cannot ignore his actual words because we don’t know what those words are.  All we have is what the journalist interprets what the bishop says.  Given the delicacy of the matter, the bishop’s actual words should be provided so that we can judge what he means. If we are to read his mind, as you suggest, then let us see his actual words.  Otherwise we are really reading not the bishop’s mind but the journalist’s.

        ” We are not that stupid not to know what he really meant.”

        You can read minds?  I can’t. I have lived long enough to know that we cannot know what someone really meant unless we see what he really said. So what did he really said?

        “Now go home and plant kamote.”

        That is just a personal attack that is meant to try to silence me, and I don’t give into such bullying tactics.

        Instead, in my closing, let me say “Now go home and read the actual words of the bishop and not some interpretations written by others.” Always, go to the original source.

    Overpopulation..is NOT, AT ALL..advantageous to other countries especially in our own country. Is this bishop crazy or what..is he watching tv or even educate himself by at least going around the poor neighborhood..Most of the families who has at least 4 to 9 children are poor with their both parents cant even give their children basic needs because both parents doesnt have job or, if not, descent job. Maybe, one of them will work as caregiver..very rare, but most of them ends up being a criminal, rapist, drug user..pusher..prostitution..etc..or few of them ends up in a charitable institution..some of them ends up dead. Sila ang mga salot sa lipunan na bunga ng kahirapan na hanggang ngayon ay pasan pa rin ng bayan. This bishop is instilling in the mind of the people a very wrong belief, and to encourage them to go out and put the red ribbon bakeshop??este..red flag???whatever..

    the catholic church should be preaching the GOSPEL MESSAGE that JESUS CHRIST came to this world to redeem sinners.  Now that it has lost this very mandate to preach to the nations to the ends of world the true and wonderful GOSPEL MESSAGE it has veered towards politics, and other issues where the catholic church has no business or expertise or even authority to preach – thus it is sad that many Filipinos are now even showing disrespect and even cursing them (as seen in the many postings now a days).  CBCP please go back to the basics of the CHRISTIAN MISSION – preach the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST and do not meddle in politics.  Do not desire the power and recognition of this world for if you continue to do so, you will just continue to plunge in the abyss of oblivion.  If you are indeed disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, follow HIS mission to preach the GOSPEL.  ALSO, respect the rule of law, respect families, have pity on the poor and those suffering the miseries of large and uncared for families. But if you are not, then i’m sure this kind of attitude and pronouncements of CBCP and the catholic church will proliferate and Philippines need not wonder why you are such. sad and pitiful indeed.

      “Ang bawat mamamayan ay isang asset ng lipunan”

      anong assest ka dyan, sa daming tamad na pilipino mas lamang na liabilities sila kesa sa asset.

      nagbabasa ka ba ng news? alam mo ba kung ilang ang population ng china at india, tutuo na umunlad ang china pero tandaan mo, 999.99 million ng population nila ang nasa poverty line, yung umunlad eh yun 1~2% lang at ganon din ang india.

      taena kayo, ang ba tingin nyo sa RH bill?? ura-urada eh mababawasan agad ang populasyon ng pinas? mas lamang na walang susunod sa RH bill, sa sobrang tamad ng pinoy, libre na nga ang condom tamad pang pumunta sa health center para kumuha, 

      oo nga naman, 2 minuto lang eh lalabasan na sa sex eh bakit pa maglalakad ng 30 minuto para sa condom? baka mawala ang libog pag-lumabas ng bahay para lang kumuha ng condom!

      • josefe38

        di totoo na tamad ang pilipino, ang pilipino ay isa sa mga magagaling at masisipag ng manggagawa. productive ang isang mamamayan pag itoy mabigyan ng pagkakataon o opportunities na magamit ang kanyang talino at kakayahan, sino ang magbigay at magbukas ng oppurtunities, babalik na naman tayo sa government.

      Take the words of the Bishop in its ordinary meaning. You are just spinning his imbecilic banter to save his face. Hindi kami ganoong katanga upang hindi maintindihan kung ano ang nais niyang sabihin.

    • Leonardof

      Ibig mong sabihin ay mas marunong ka kaysa mga population experts or demographers na nagsasabing mataas ang ating population growth rate. Pero mukhang may diperensya ang pag-iisip mo dahil sa sinabi mo na makikitid ang pag-iisip ang mga taong ang pananaw ay mali ang sinabi Bishop Garcera.  

      Kung malinaw ang pag-iisip mo ay dapat makita mo na hindi naman kagandahan ang katayuhan ng mga OFW sapagkat karamihan sa kanila ay nagpapa-alila lang sila. Di ba kagagohan ang pagkatuwa mo na ang mga Pilipinang nagtratrabahong housemaid ay nagkaroon ng nakakahiyang bansag.

      Sa mga fanatikong tulad mo , dapat na lang tumahimik  at punoin na lang ang inyong mga utak sa mga kuwentong kutsero ng mga obispo.

    “We should stop looking at poor people as a problem,”  ??? Naive talaga.  Squatters in Metro Manila steal electricity and water.  So who ends up paying for the airconditioning of these squatters?  It’s the honest paying Meralco and Nawasa customers.  Meron pa nga silang cable tv at flat tv sa kanilang mga barung barong e.  Pero marami sa kanila hindi nagbabayad.  Tapos walang buwis na binabayaran ang mga iyan, pero kung pagpilitan ang kanilang mga KARAPATAN . . . akala mo aping-api na sila.  Bakit hindi nila ipaglaban ang kanilang OBLIGASYON na magbayad ng buwis at maka-tulong sa bansa?  Ano pa ang problema?  Ang mga batang palabuy-laboy sa kalye, made in the squatter area ang mga yan. Pabrika ng mga bata.   At pag lumaki ang mga batang iyan, malaking porsyento sa kanila ay magiging kriminal.  At dahilan nila sa pag-gawa ng krimen ay kahirapan — na kasalanan ng govyerno — na kasalanan ng mga mayayaman — na kasalanan ng lipunan.  Ang punto ,  wala silang kasalanan.  Kasalanan DAW natin ang kanilang kahirapan at dapat natin silang ipag-saing ng kanin at pakainin ng masasarap na ulam, bigyan ng pabahay, at bayaran ang matrikula ng kanilang mga anak.  Ang masama pa, binoboto nila ang mga ampaw kagaya ni Erap, Bong Revilla, Jaworski, Lito Lapid, na lalong nagpapalubog sa Pilipinas.WE SHOULD STOP LOOKING AT POOR PEOPLE AS A PROBLEM.  What BS

    • BruceInIloilo

      Thieves are a problem.  Poverty is a problem.  Urban overcrowding is a problem.  But all poor people?  One third of Filipino children are malnourished.  Are they a problem? Please. No poor people are not the problem. Other people are a blessing, not a problem. Other people are what bring out life joy and love.  Other people are what make life worth living.  Love, don’t hate, other people, yes even the poor.

      By the way, be careful about being Manla-centric.  Manila is the wealthiest, best fed part of the Philippines by far.  Oh, and poor people don’t have aircon. They cannot afford it.

      Gulo mo ha, iba ibang post pa, di mag stick sa thread. Hehe.

      Kaya siguro ng gobyerno kung sa kaya. Pero paano mo bibigyan ng proyekto ang bawat probinsya e ang kapital nga ng Pilipinas hindi maayos ayos? At ang sarap ng buhay ng mga mahihirap ha, nagpaparami lang ng bibig na pakakainin, bibigyan pa ng gobyerno ng proyekto at malamang pabahay pa mula sa buwis na pinaghihirapan ng mga taong nagtatrabaho. Just a thought. You don’t have to comment on that.. LOL

      Me thinks that what the government SHOULD do is teach the people how to fish and not just give them fish to eat.

      Going back to your original post and to the true topic of this thread anyway… Overpopulation is NOT an advantage of this land. It IS a problem. As soon as you and these priests understand and acknowledge this fact, the sooner that we can move on from it and start working on possible solutions. Buti nga may RH Bill na!

      Ang sabi nga…if you’re not part of the solution.. you’re obviously part of the problem. 

      Since you stand behind this bishop’s words, can you actually think of anything that the church has done to better the lives of the poor?

      Sabi sa mga pinanggalingan kong school, if you wanna follow Jesus’ footsteps, you have to carry his cross and live the way he did, in simplicity. You have to give up mundane things, etc. I see the church with so much money, land, properties and apparently, some power over this country — they could even make pakialam in state matters, can you believe that? Hahaha! I don’t think that’s simplicity at all.. :)

      But I’m tired and it’s the weekend.. so this will be my last post on this matter.

         The parents would love help from the government in family planning measures

        The government would love to help provide couples with contraceptives to give them a choice of having a child or not without sacrificing their intimate times.

        The catholic church always try to prevent the government from helping couples who want to try family planning. They do so because they think they own this country.

     At sila’y binasbasan ng Dios, at sa kanila’y sinabi ng Dios, Kayo’y

    magkaroon kayo ng kapangyarihan sa mga isda sa dagat, at sa mga ibon sa
    himpapawid, at sa bawa’t hayop na gumagalaw sa ibabaw ng lupa.

    supilin = subdue

    Para pa rin sa iyo Bishop,

    Isaias 5:20
    “Kawawa kayo,
    mga baligtad ang isip! Ang mabuting gawa ay minamasama, Ang masama naman ay
    minamabuti, ang kaliwanaga’y inaaring dilim at ang kadilima’y liwanag ang

        There are a lot of issues re: poverty and a country’s economic wealth. But that’s not the point here. This mentality is insulting because its insinuating that Filipinos’ place in the global economy is be a servant or a wife in a foreign country. That mentality is not only demeaning to Filipinos everywhere, but it also insinuates that the Catholic Church in the Philippines doesn’t see their “flock” as people. But rather livestock that you can “populate” that you can trade with other countries like a commodity. It’s disgusting.

        And what are you, as a Filipino citizen are doing about it? Accept it as a fact of life like a faithful Catholic just as our ancestors did? Accept your fate as a lowly servant? That’s a mentality imposed by the Spaniards, using religion as means of controlling us. Nothing has changed 400 years later. And THAT is the real reason why the Philippines is always going to be living in poverty.  Because so many Filipinos just accept that this situation is a fact of life and we can’t do any better. And this situation is God’s wish. 

        What’s happening is that the Church is meddling with politics and playing with people’s lives. If you want to improve yourself, then you take responsibility for your own life. That’s the life lesson that my parents instilled in me. 

        My mother came a poor family and the first one to graduate with a University degree in her family. It wasn’t praying or accepting that being poor is and being a servant is her fate that gave us, their children, a better life.

        It’s having the drive to push and earn a scholarship to finish her schooling. It’s scrimping and saving every money she and my father earned despite the economic uncertainty since the Marcos Regime so that we kids would have a good education and a chance of getting better jobs. That’s why she did not become a domestic worker in Hong Kong or become a mail order bride to her Japanese pen-pal. 

        That’s why I’m a researcher and working for one of the leading hospitals on geriatric mental health in the world here in Canada. It’s all because both my parents studied hard, worked hard and refused to allow their low economic status stop them from pursuing their dreams.

        I apologize if my post is rather emotional. And maybe I’m seeing this as a total outsider as I spent most of my life here in Canada. But what this bishop is saying is total bullcrap. What he’s saying is not religious enlightenment or enlightenment of any sort. Its ensuring that the legacy of slavery imposed on our ancestors by the Spaniards by manipulating and distorting the scriptures to make sure that their followers give their utmost obedience continues on and on to future Filipinos.

        what comes into my mind is…plain and simple. the higher the population the more abuloy they can generate. thats it. now where does that money go? i dont see my church giving it back to the poor. now if you are talking about proper distribution of wealth..eh matagal na sana na eliminate ang poverty. sa dami ng pera na na accumulate ng simbahan sana naiibabalik ito sa mga taong dapat nais nilang tulungan. eh sa lagay na yan maniniwala sana ako sa mga pinagsasabi ng obispo na ito. pero sa tono ng pananalita nya parang nakaka insulto ito sa mga ofw at mga kababayan natin na walang ginawa kundi kumayod para sa kanilang pamilya..the bishop is not in his right mind..kaya yang sinasabi mong kanyang kanyang pag iisip yan baka tama ka dyan…me sira na ata yang obispo na yan..and you cant compare us to china or what ever country that you are saying. simple lang yan. meron silang discipline at kung lalabag ka sa batas latigo abot mo. eh dito meron ba? baka ma human rights violation ka ni ginang hr secretary..lawakan ang pag iisip…wag maging tupa! d mo lang alam baka sila pala’y lobo at mabigla ka lang…

    “Bishop Gilbert Garcera of the Diocese of Daet, the capital of  Camarines Norte, believes overpopulation has been advantageous to the  Philippines ”

    Compare that to the next line – 

    “Contrary to the aims of the reproductive health (RH) bill, Garcera said the huge Philippine population could be part of “God’s plan”

    “A high population growth rate, long considered a hindrance to prosperity, is now often seen as a driving force for economic growth. About 61 percent of the population in the Philippines is of working age, between 15 and 64. That figure is expected to continue increasing, which is not the case for many of its Asian neighbors, whose populations are aging. ” – Frederic Neumann, a senior economist at HSBC in Hong Kong.

    How stupid can this bishop be?

    Does he know that the growth in employment opportunities in this country has been overtaken by  the fast increase in population which in turn led to mass unemployment, underemployment,  hunger and poverty which lead the poor to commit crimes? 

    Does he not know that poor families could not send their children to school because the meager income they earn could not even suffice to feed their hungry mouths?

    Has he not realised that even college graduates could not find decent jobs here due to the very stiff competition for the very few placements in the job market?

    Filipinos have been looking for greener pastures in foreign lands because their own is “barren.” They opt to go to strange lands where uncertain future awaits them but the lure of better income is stronger than their fears. 

    Those who have been “lucky” to find jobs abroad live in the word conditions they can imagine: intense heat in the desert; bitter winters; and worst, wicked employers. How many Filipino women have been abused, mistreated, raped or killed by their foreign masters?

    And yet this bishop says that “overpopulation is advantageous to the Philippines and to the world because it has increased the number of overseas workers and migrants who could send remittances back home.”

    I wonder if the Catholic hierarchy in this country would tolerate the idiocy of one of their own.

        Jezzrel, Nowhere did I say that there is no unemployment in other countries. India and Indonesia also “export” labourers as domestic helpers. These countries are overpopulated too. But as I have seen in the US, Italy, Greece, Germany, Belgium, Holland, France, Spain, England and other European countries, there are many Filipino college graduates who do menial jobs because they earn more doing that than most white collar jobs in the Philippines.

        Many of the poor became poorer because they sire children more than their meager income can afford to feed, clothe, shelter and send to schools.

    We can’t even feed the over 500,000 kids the DepEd considers “SEVERELY WASTED!” The DepEd’s own feeding program can barely feed 42,000 kids out of the over 560,000 they are supposed to feed.

      • http://www.facebook.com/brian.suarez.9674 Brian Suarez

        Wrong.

        The government gets its money from TAXPAYERS. The money is from us. We entrust them to allocate the money wisely.

        Now, are you saying that it’s OK to spend 3 to 14 BILLION PESOS of our money on condoms and pills, and not allocate more of the taxpayers’ money on urgent matters like feeding the 500,000 kids?

        I suggest you read the budget of The Philippines.

      • AntonioPeYangIII

        //Now, are you saying that it’s OK to spend 3 to 14 BILLION PESOS of our money on condoms and pills, and not allocate more of the taxpayers’ money on urgent matters like feeding the 500,000 kids?//

        Now you’re assuming that the 14 billion will automatically be deducted directly from other programs. Prove it please. The burden of proof lies on you. 

        I suggest you study basic logic. You’re sorely lacking. 

        //The government gets its money from TAXPAYERS. The money is from us. We entrust them to allocate the money wisely.//
        Exactly. Tax money isn’t for them to dispense at the behest of your religious motivations. As per Joaquin Bernas:

        ““One must distinguish between tax money and donated money. The use of donated money is limited byintentio dantis or the intention of the donor. Tax money, on the other hand, can be used for any legitimate public purpose authorized by Congress. Tax money has no religious face. Whether or not its use is licit can ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court,” Bernas said.”

      • Brian_Suarez

         Wrong again.

        Please show me where I said that “tax money has a religious face.” I will wait for your evidence. :)

        I’ll give you one word so that you’ll understand: “PRIORITIES.”

        I hope that’s simple enough for you. :)

      • AntonioPeYangIII

        //The government gets its money from TAXPAYERS. The money is from us. We entrust them to allocate the money wisely.//

        You mistake tax money for donations, then. As per constitutionalist Joaquin Bernas:

        [“One must distinguish between tax money and donated money. The use of donated money is limited byintentio dantis or the intention of the donor. Tax money, on the other hand, can be used for any legitimate public purpose authorized by Congress. Tax money has no religious face. Whether or not its use is licit can ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court,” Bernas said.]
        //Now, are you saying that it’s OK to spend 3 to 14 BILLION PESOS of our money on condoms and pills, and not allocate more of the taxpayers’ money on urgent matters like feeding the 500,000 kids?//

        You’re making several assumptions.

        The first is that you’re assuming that I have to choose either between an RH program that includes, sex education and maternal care services (which you conveniently left out of your statements, you shameless weasel), or comprehensive feeding and anti-poverty programs. I support both, and I think both should receive ample funding. 

        The second assumption that you have yet to prove is that the RH Bill will directly decrease funding for the 500,000 kids you’ve been waving around. You made the claim, so kindly provide us with evidence.

        //I suggest you read the budget of The Philippines.//And I suggest that you visit a women’s health center, or perhaps the POGS and DOH websites – all of them have declared their support for the RH Bill. it’s your word against that of RP’s 100,000 accredited doctors. 

    • Doc_A

      I think the governemnt is trying to cover everything with our limited funds and resources… our long term goal is to try to control the population for NOW… if no control measures will be implimented… your 500,000 kids now will be 1,000,000 tomorrow… so think long term pal… dont be too short sighted…

      • http://www.facebook.com/brian.suarez.9674 Brian Suarez

        So what do you tell those kids?  Can you tell them that we have 3 to 14 billion pesos on condoms and pills, but no more money for them?

        Those are not a rhetorical questions.

      • Doc_A

        You are limiting your words with just condoms and pills… remember that… MAYBE (as we dont know yet the exact budget… you have just sourced your information thru the internet) that will be the budget for the RH Bill… and i guess… it will cover for eveything NOT JUST CONDOM and PILLS… but also on education, health etc…

        SO PLEASE DON’T LIMIT IT WITH JUST CONDOMS and PILLS
        are you one of those being fed by the government?

        I am a Tax payer too… and FEEDING PROGRAM is just one of the many many problems our government is handling… hindi naman dapat lahat sa food… and if we won;t do anything… I bet… your 500,000 hungry kids will be 1,000,000 sooner or hope later if no ACTION HAS BEEN DONE… 1,000,000 kids who are not EDUCATED PROPERLY.. WHO WILL PRODUCE eventually ANOTHER MILLION of OFFSPRING who are ILL-EDUCATED aswell… kasi natapos lang ang usapan sa FEEDING THEM!

        FEEDING THIS PEOPLE is just one aspect… there are other factors… that you can also label URGENT!

    What the F is this bishop talking about? Overpopulation will not just destroy the economy but will also be bad for everything. Ganun ba kababa ang tingin nya sa mga Filipina para sabihin na “good wives for foreigners”? Anu yun binebenta nya mga kababaihan naten? And hello? Hanggang care giver nalang ba ang mga pinoy?

    Does this Bishop know what he is talking about? Does he know what OFW’s undergo in other countries? I have been an OFW in two countries for the last 30 years. Sana itong Bishop na ito maging OFW run parang matikman niya kung anong sinasabi niyang, “God’s Plan”. Ginagamit pa niya ang Diyos sa pagdurusa ng mga Pilipino. Forgive this Bishop for he doesn’t know what he is saying, more so what he is doing. Filipinas to become brides of foreigners? Again, does he know what happens to our Pinays who have become Korean brides, Japanese brides, Aussies brides? He knows only the few “success stories” is you may call them “success”. Majority of them are languishing in “culture shock”, language shock and many are never heard from anymore. 

    I suggest the Bishop’s views of things need reality testing. Ang daming niyang dinadakdak na hindi niya alam. 

    Sorry Bishop, wala kang credibility.

  • obleman

    Basahin muna ang atrikulo bago mag-react.

    Ang sabi ng obispo ay hindi problema ang overpopulation; In a sense na katiwalian at kasakiman ang problema. Sa aking opinyon, totoo at tama naman ang kanyang mungkahi ukol sa kasakiman at katiwalian. Mali lamang ang sinabi niyang “good wife” at na disregard niya ang estado at kalagayan ng buhay ng mga mahihirap na Pilipino.

    • Chris

      His analogy is still politically incorrect, though. 

      Also, what does he mean by using the term “good wife”?.. He blatantly disregards the rights of women, too!

      • obleman

        Yep you’re right. I also disagree with that statement.

    • frudo

      sinabi nila na di problema ang over population para ma justify ang turo nila na safe sex ay hindi umubra sa mga Pinoy dahil safe sex lang ang tangap nila at against sila sa contraceptives or modern method of family planning at dahil ang natural method of family planning ay hindi naging efektibo at naging over populated ang Pinas syempre gagawasila ng paraan para ma justify ito at maging masma pra sa mga tao ang bagong batas na rh bill na kung hindinila matinding tinutulan noon pa man ay baka hindi naging over populated ang Pinas

      • obleman

        I am somewhere in the middle of this. Ang point ko is putak kayo ng putak agad e’ hindi niyo muna binabasa itong article. I am pro-RH, but the Bishop has his point too. Yung sinabi niyang: “hindi overpopulation ang problema, kundi ang talamak na korupsyon.” Sa aking palagay, tama naman iyon. If you are going to study economics, hindi naman salot ang “overpopulation” KUNG ito’y maayos na gagamitin. Maganda naman sana ang kanyang mungkahi ngunit mali ang ilan sa kanyang mga sinabi katulad ng mga Filipina as a “good wife”, domestic helper, poverty and good thing ang magbuntis ng magbuntis ng walang PLANO.

  • Ganymede

    OK.. for the sake of argument, let’s say that corruption and unequal distribution of wealth is the problem. So what is your solution to eradicate corruption? Let’s become a communist country for the equal distribution of wealth? It’s easier said than done. The realiaty is, corruption and unequal distribution of wealth is here to stay.

  • Kiomi Zaiachi

    If all bishops think like this, it’s no wonder I keep on thinking religion makes things worse. :| No offense, but this bishop may not be thinking straight. I mean, it’s the Filipinos’ choice if he wants to go abroad to work or be an OFW. It’s not their obligation. If there were more job offers here in the country, they wouldn’t want to leave. In the first place, they are only boarding planes and going to other countries to help their family here because HERE, they have no jobs and other places are offering jobs. (aka abroad). And Filipinas…are not things you give to foreigners to wed. It’s their choice to marry a Foreigner. It’s not our obligation to marry foreigners. I think it’s our obligation to live happily. Not dictated by religion or government. They are there as guides for a better life. Not an unsustainable one. If they really want the Philippines and the Filipinos to prosper…it should start from within the country and Bishops like him should butt out of government affairs. 

    • lionofthedesert

      kelangan lang siguro ni bishop na mag abroad at makita kung gano kaganda ng buhay ng mga bansang hindi “over-populated”. Napakalungkot isipin na ganito ang takbo ng utak ng obispo…sana eto ay pansariling opinyon lang at hindi ng simbahang katoliko.

  • diamond_digger

    Mr. Garcera, why don’t you call white as white and black as black? Overpopulation, whether in the classroom, in a boarding house or in any other place, is not good. It may only be good for your church especially when you expect everyone to drop money in the collection box. You may not really truly know that GOD knows even your thoughts. Stop fooling HIM by way of twisting the truth.

        “poverty in worldly things is nothing if you’re spiritually rich”

    Sustained by contributions from their poor flocks, sheltered by their mansions and convents, insured by their large tracks of lands and businesses and to mention shielded from paying any forms of taxes and any forms of contributions or obligations whether for their families (for they have none) or for country, these bishops are clearly, literally, not just out of their minds but out of touch with reality.

      – Proposed budget for the RH Bill = nearly 14 billion pesos; 3 billion pesos for condoms/contraceptives

      – DOH Budget – Equity for the modernization of the twenty-five (25)

    Parang ganito…..Kung wala akong pera dahil wala akong trabaho “kasalanan” ng simbahan, kung di ko mapakain ang sarili ko at mga anak ko, “kasalanan” ng simbahan, kung mahirap man ako, walang kinalaman ang gobyerno kung me magandang trabaho ako or wla dito sa bansa ko at lalong wala akong kinalaman kung bakit naghihirap ako…

    Ugali na nating mga Pinoy ang isisi sa iba ang mga failures sa buhay natin….

        makikisali at magsasalita ako bilang isang OFW… nung mabasa ko ang article, nainsulto ako.. nakakaiyak, nakakagalit, nakakakulo ng dugo.

        makapal ang mukha ng bishop na yan para magsalita sya para sa kalagayan at kung ano ang kahihinatnan ng mga Filipinos lalo na ng mga OFWs. masyado syang nagmamarunong para magsalita sa ngalan ng mga mahihirap.

        bakit hindi nya subukang magtrabaho at mamuhay sa ibang bansa? bakit hindi nya subukang mag-asikaso, maghugas ng mga pinagsukahan at pinagtaehan ng taong hindi nya kaanu-ano? bakit hindi nya subukang magbayad ng kung ano-anong forced contributions sa gobyerno na hindi naman namin (OFWs) nararamdaman na may pinupuntahan? bakit hindi nya subukang ipakasal ang kapatid nyang babae o kung sinumang malapit na kamag-anak nya sa mga foreigner? bakit hindi nya subukang mag-anak ng sandamakmak na wala syang maipangtustos?

        ang diyos na sinasamba ng bishop na ito ay makasarili, ang diyos na kilala nya mas gugustuhin pang maghirap ang mga Filipino… puwes hindi kami dadalhin ng sinasabi nyang diyos nya sa maayos at magandang buhay. Ang obispong to, isang malaking BOBO.

    Qouted: In light of the Christian faith, Garcera said, the big number of Filipinos should not be seen as a problem but as an opportunity to help other people in the world.
    “Filipinos have a duty to take care of them,” he said.

    Selflessness is a very noble virtue… but how can we spread the love and peace.. .if we can;t even tend to our basic needs…

    I totally lost my faith because of the obvious greed of the so-called preachers. Mag-asawa na lang ng foreigners, maging ofw (he said caregivers precisely), magpedicab, maging mahirap. Ganun na lang kababaw tingin nga sa mga pilipino, wala naman siyang alam sa buhay na akala niyang madali lang, palibhasa di niya kailangan maghirap o malayo sa pamilya, gusto niya makita kadugytuan. Well it explains all, ang mga said ay napipilitang kumapit sa simbahan, magbigay sa simbahan, magfocus sa simbahan. More followers, more money and other offerings. Sira ulo.

    “hindi problema ang kahirapan, ito pa nga ang naglalapit sa mga tao sa Dyos, at plano Nya na

    ang mga Pilipino ang magaalaga sa mga ibat-ibang nasyonalidad sa ibang bansa”.

    Natutuwa pala ng dyos ni Garcera na maging mahirap tayo, na madaming batang nagugutom,

    nagkakasakit dahil sa kahirapan at natutulog sa mga ilalim ng tulay, sa bangketa, kariton, o sa

    sa mga refugee center. Kung ganito ang dyos na sinasabi ni Garcera, na natutuwa sa ating

    pagiging mahirap, salungat ito sa kanilang mga turo, kaya hindi kataka-takang padami ng padami

    ang lumalayo sa kanyang simbahan.

    Dapat, maglunsad ng kilusan para ma ‘excile’ itong si Garcera.

    Para sa kanya, ang mga Pinay ay magandang ‘paanakan’, tagapagalaga, at katulong lamang, at

    ang mga expatriates of OFW ay parang mga kasangkapang pang ‘export’ lamang.

    Palibhasa walang mga anak yang mga pari na yan, walang buwis na binabayaran, wala ring inaalala na mawawalan sila ng trabaho. Masyado silang maswerte para tumingin mula sa pananaw ng mga ordinaryong tao. Gaya ni Padre Damaso, gusto nila na sila lang ang nasusunod, na pupunta ka sa impyerno pag hindi mo sinunod ang mga pananaw nila… Ano ba ginawa nila para mapabuti ang buhay ng mga pilipino? Nagpunta na ba sila sa squaters area para magpakain ng mga gusgusin don? dinalaw ba nila yung mga nakatira sa tulay at tabi ng estero para ipangaral ang pag ibig ng Diyos sa kanyang mga anak? Nag isip ba sila ng mas mabuting mga paraan para mapabuti ang buhay ng mga mahihirap? Did they even make an effort to make a change?

    Hindi ako suporter ng RH bill, dahil gagamitin nila ang bwis na binabayaran ko mula sa pinaghirapan kong pera para ipamigay sa mga mahihirap at baka sakaling bumaba ang paglobo ng pagdami ng tao. Sa parehong pagkakataon, hindi rin ako kumokontra dahil gusto natin ng pagbabago sa lipunan natin. Gusto natin ng pagbabago, pero ang pinahayag ng mabuting obispong yan ay parehong pananaw ng mga primitibong pag iisip ng mga sinaunang kaparian. Para sa kanya, tayong mga pilipino ay mga alipin, mababang uri ng lahi, at dapat manatiling lubog sa kung saan nakasadlak ang ating bayan.

    Nakakalungkot isipin na may ganitong klaseng tao, pero bilang demokratikong bansa, karapatan nya ang sabihin yon, pero karapatan din ng marami kung ano ang gusto nilang gawin sa buhay, at ang nakakarami lagi ang masusunod.

    I almost threw up when I was half-way reading this article. Initially, I thought the bishop had some good argument for why overpopulation is good for Filipinos which I could learn from or hadn’t considered before. But sadly, it’s the same disdain for women and the poor that I saw in his arguments. And to take the name of God in vain triggered my comments here.

    I am always busy and mindful on how I spend my time. Although there are already many good and poignant comments by others, I just want to add mine to ease my mind and relieve my emotional distress over the bishop’s statements in this article.

    It’s not God’s plan that Filipino women should be the caregivers of the world or “good wives”
    to foreigners or that poverty is not a problem in our country! Does the bishop want to encourage our womenfolk to a life of servitude, away from their families and friends, in a strange land and culture, with no meaningful social life of their own and in some countries no way to practice their religion? Does the bishop want to be the pimp for the world too? Or rather address the real problem that some of our OFWs are abused verbally, emotionally and physically? Does the bishop wants to promote more poverty in our country? Or does he want to help deliver us from poverty and ignorance so we or our children could be teachers, doctors,  mathematicians, scientists, lawyers or contributors to the wellbeing and progress of our country?

    The bishop said that the problem in our country is corruption and the unequal distribution of wealth. Quite true! But among the major religions in the world, the Roman Catholic hierarchy is the most corrupt – then and now, according to several studies. And unequal distribution of wealth? Well, how much landholdings and properties does the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines has? And it does not pay taxes on them too.

    We cannot take lightly the bishop’s statements here, no manner how illogical and intrusive they are to our intelligence, because he is a man of the cloth and a bishop, to boot, that many Filipinos will believe his declarations. And he is doing it deliberately by appealling to the ignorance of some of our countrymen by invoking that these declarations are God’s will.

    The good bishop does not know about the life of an OFW. The bishop must not say something he haven’t experienced. He must not advocate on sending Filipinos to work as “slaves”  in foreign lands. If only there are better options in the Philippines I will opt to stay and work there.

    PDI,I want to hear the views from other Religion aside from Catholic side if overpopulation really good for Filipinos from the “Reality” point of view? Kasi kung iisang religion lang ang pakikinggan natin eh unfair naman sa iba!…Or why can´t we amend our law on how our Government support each family?…How about that the Government will be responsible supporting children in each family up to maximum of two(2)….then everyone who exceed the number of 2 will be given to the CBCP as their sole responsibilities:
    1) Health
    2) Academics (free tuition fees at Elementary levels to all catholic-owned school)
    3) Family basic needs 50/50 with the government

    Now,kapag pumayag na ang Catholic sectors with this agreement then masasabi kong “overpopulation” is good in our country.Wala na tayong pag-uusapan pa!
    As you have said “Filipinos has a BIG MISSION to the world.”…..Now,let me throw back my question “DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE ALREADY ACCOMPLISH YOUR MISSION TO THE PEOPLE BY STRENGTHENING THEIR FAITH?”…Let me say,you have given Baptism sa bawat bata,BUT did you follow up supporting faith of every family to made them strong?….Let me say,you have given the sacrament of Matrimony,BUT did you put each family under the watchful eye kung naliligaw na ba ng landas?…..And my last phrase “Naliligaw ng Landas” is the KEY FACTOR why all kinds of crime increases!…Most of them looses faith because you didn´t protect them and GUIDE THEM from the sinners….So,you are throwing all the blames to the Government?…..CBCP,Bago po magkaroon ng sinasabing GOBYERNO ang Pilipinas eh nauna na po ang pagkakaroon ng KRISTIYANISMO sa Pilipinas. At yan eh pinabayaan nyo!….Let me say this,kung maayos ang pagpapahalaga ng Kristiyanismong Katholiko sa bansa eh malamang hindi magkakaroon ng “Born Again Christian” sa bansa….Just my 2 cents of opinion!

    To his Excellency Bishop Garcera , I’d like to find out what kind of medications you’re on and which planet are you from.No wonder with such kind of comments the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines is  losing its hold on Catholic Filipinos. OVERRPOPULATION IS NOT GOOD FOR FILIPINOS – IT’S A RECIPE FOR DISASTER.

  • virgo57

    This Bishop Garcera is still having a hang over after heavy boozed or this bishop is in orphanage talking with kinder pupils or street children waiting for candies to be given or simply to a group of beggars put into sessions with alms for distribution. Bishop Garcera what kind of line of thinking do you have a myopic deceitful mouthpiece of archdiocese propagating false picture of the real situation? You are not an economist to paint picture of the economy instead you are intruding and stepping on someone toes. Bakit kayong mga paring Katoliko napakaalamero nyo at ginagawang tanga at bobo ang sambayanang Pilipino. Napakabaluktot ng doktrina nyo at napaka hipokrito. The CBCP never adopt corrective measures of the ballooning population nor help the government on rampant juvenile crimes instead directly pointing corruption as the major cause but their hypocrisy by accepting bribes ay nakakasuka. Bishop Garcera you must shut up because your theory is too shallow and it seems you are like a gay swindler.

    Over sighted itong mitsubishop na ito. Hindi ba niya nakikita yung mga marurungis at walang saplot na mga bata na pagala-gala lang sa kalsada. Panahon na siguro para lumabas naman si mitsubishop garcera sa kanyang palasyo at mag-gala sa mga slum area, at nang makita niya ang totoong sitwasyon ng overpopulation.

    Mitsubishop garcera naman, after 400++ years pinaglololoko niyo pa rin kaming mga Pilipino. Kapag maraming Pilipino, maraming mag-aanak at magpapa-binyag, maraming magpapa-kumipil, maraming magsisimba at magbibigay ng alay, maraming magpapa-kasal, maraming mamamatay at magpapa-misa, etc. etc., so ang resulta, marami rin kayong kikitain. Pera-pera lang yan eh.

    Bishop Gilbert Garcera of the Diocese of Daet, Napakababa ng pagtingin mo sa mga pilipino, lalong lalo na sa kababaihan. Malaki ang misyon ng pilipino para sa ikagiginhawa ng mundo? e sarili mo ngang bansa hindi maginhawa ang nakakarami! Para ba magpadala ng pera ang mga OFW at maging sandalan ng ating ekonomiya? Sabog ka Bishop, ilang pamilya ang nawawasak ng dahil sa pag alis ng Ama o Ina ng tahanan para lang mabigyan nya ng sinasabing magandang kinabukasan ang kanyang pamilya. Good wives for the Foreigners? WAW Bishop, BUGAW ka na din pala ngayon, sa palagay mo ba bakit gustong mag asawa ng madaming kababaihan ng Foreigner? diba para makaahon din sa hirap? Anong palagay mo sa mga pilipina? BABY MAKERS para sa mga bansang under populated?
    Utang na loob Bishop Gilbert Garcera, mag isip ka naman ng matino, o sana wag ka na lang mag comment sa mga masasakit na bagay na sasabihin sa iyo ng mga netizen, dahil kahit POKPOK, hindi sasang-ayon sa trip mo. Oo, every filipino child is a blessing to the world, pero paano magiging blessing ang isang tao kung sya mismo e pinanganak sa impyerno ng kahirapan at kawalan ng oportunidad?

    Please Bishop, tignan mo ang mga bagay bagay sa bayan mo mula sa mata ng mga taong nasa lebel na yon, at hindi mula sa lugar kung saan ka nakasampa ngayon, palibhasa hindi ka pinanganak sa isang pang publikong ospital, hindi ka lumaki sa squaters area, at hindi ka nagtrabaho sa palenge bilang kargador, o naging vulcanizing boy, o naging factory worker. Pinag aral ka ng magulang mo sa magandang eskwelahan, nagtapos ng Theology, nag pari ka, at nag aral sa Vatican para marating mo ang kinalalagyan mo ngayon.

    Pero ang masaklap na katotohanan, hindi lahat ng magulang kaya magpaaral sa magandang eskwelahan, hindi lahat ng magulang merong regular, maganda, o matinong trabaho, Hindi lahat ng pamilyang may kaya e nagiging mas asensado, may mga taong nalulugi sa negosyo, natatanggal sa trabaho, at napipilitang mamuhay sa mas mababang antas ng buhay dahil sa kakulangan ng suporta ng gobyerno.

    Ayokong sabihin to dahil mabigat na banat to, pero sa loob ng 400 na taon na naging dominanteng pananampalataya ang katolisismo, at sa pamumuhay natin sa modernong panahon, WALA KAYONG NAITULONG PARA MAPABUTI ANG BUHAY NG MARALITANG PILIPINO. Magbigay nga kayo ng eskwelahan na pang mahirap na pinatatakbo ng simbahang katoliko? Anong ospital ng simbahan na libreng tumutulong sa mga kapos palad para tugunan ang pangangailangang medikal nila? Anong pasilidad sa bansa ang pinagawa ng simbahan para mapakinabangan ng publiko (bukod sa mga simbahan)? Anong mga trabaho ang nagawa ng simbahan para sa mga hindi nakapag tapos ng elementary o high school? Anong nagawang Livelihood Program ng simbahan para sa gustong magkaroon ng sariling hanap buhay? Anong public basketball court ang pinagawa ng simbahan?
    Lahat yan ginagawa ng gobyerno, oo totoong hindi sapat ang ginagawa ng gobyerno para mapabuti ang madami, totoong madaming kulang ang gobyerno, pero ang simpleng hakbang para sa ikakabuti ng madami, siguro magkakaroon kahit konting pagbabago.

    It takes one small step to climb the Everest Mountain, pero mukang paatras yata ang hakbang ni Bishop Gilbert Garcera

    Hindi lahat ng mga Filipino ay gustong maging OFW. Alam ba ng Obispo na ito na ang hirap ng mawalay sa pamilya? Na hindi mo nakikitang lumalaki ang mga anak dahil kailangang magsakripisyo para sa kanilang kinabukasan, na kailangan mong labanan ang homesickness dahil kung mapapauwi ka ay walang maipapakain sa pamilya. Ang RH bill ay isang paraan para masugpo ang paglaki ng populasyon at para magkaroon ng pagkakataon na makasama ang pamilya habang nagtatrabaho sa bayang sinilangan at hindi maging atsay at tuta ng ibang bansa. 

    Kung gustong makatulong ng Simbahan ay akuin niya lahat ng mga babaeng nabubuntis, pakainin at alagaan ang mga sanggol na iniluluwal nila. Bigyan ng assistance ang mga mahihirap na squatters na sandamakmak na mga anak dahil di nila kayang palakihin ng maayos. Bigyan ng libreng edukasyon sa mga Catholic schools ang mga batang kalyeng palaboy sa lansangan, etc, etc, etc.

    “He said that the overpopulation that breeds poverty was not a problem because poverty itself was not a problem.
    “He said poverty even brought people “closer” to God and was instrumental in realizing God’s plan for Filipinos to take care of other nationalities by inducing migration and working abroad.”
    The bishop is out of touch with reality. Obviously hindi niya naranasan kung paano mabuhay na mahirap – lalo na iyong sobrang hirap. At wala rin siyang ideya kung paano ang buhay ng maraming OFW na caregivers at helpers. Na kung may magandang option lang diyan sa Pinas ay mas piliin pang diyan na magtrabaho – malapit pa sa pamilya at mga mahal sa  buhay. Ang mga ito ay may mga kursong natapos pero sa hangad na umangat ang buhay ay piniling lumabas ng bansa. At hindi ibig sabihin na pag gumanda na ang buhay ay lumalayo sa Panginoon as implied by the bishop. Mababaw ang tingin niya sa problema ng kahirapan ng bansa.

  • shirerocks

    below the belt statement coming from a ‘religious’ figure. 

  • LongShotInTheDark

    To the good bishop:

    Try listening to Elvis Presley’s ‘In the Ghetto.’ This is not the generalization of all those in dire poverty. My point is: Why not do something to avoid one being born into it?

    When every child is a blessing, would that child be blessed being born in abject poverty? Help should be extended (by government first of all, and/or by the church if they think they should) to the parents/mother so that the environment where the child is born into is conducive for the child’s growth – not to repeat the cycle of abject poverty for generations. We should deal with this first before thinking of ‘taking care of other people of the world’ as the bishop expounds.

    I believe that this RH law is a step in the right direction. It is very sad that the Catholic Church is against it. The institution is so out of touch with reality and of the present time.

  • boybakal

    I support and agree with the Bishop.
    Filipinos are  the most caring people of the world, either as caregiver or wife of the foreigner.
    Being Servants of the World is a highest accolade for there is dignity in being a servant
    For God is the Highest Servant of all.

    Aside from being Servants,
    We Filipinos are the Ugliest People on earth.
    Our filipinas should supply shortage of women in other countries like Europe, America.
    In this case, it will produce half half and a beautiful Filipino/a.

    We should become the New Face of the World by being Overpopulated and migrate to countries where there are shortage of people.

    sorry, but God i believe delights more in the prosperity of his people. God does not will poverty for us, except if we disobey his commands. the issue of poverty, then, is not about overpopulation but about what we teach to our children. if we teach them that “we are born poor, thus we die poor,” poverty mindset creeps in, and children will believe that lie. if we are teaching them to obey God rather than critic on God, blessing will eventually come.

    what i’m trying to say is this: even in small family number a family will be a blessing. yes, we are commanded to go forth and multiply, but if the family can’t handle another being, it should be stopped. though children are blessing, a reward from God, these are also be given proper stewardship, and it is a matter of strategy. God’s plan is not to make us prostitutes but to make us heads and not tails, if we know him. though God is a Father to the orphans, his will is that children will grow to have their (natural) fathers and not being orphans. overpopulation may be good, but if it is not handled well, it’s not worth it.

       Commanded to multiply was 4000 years ago when the world’s resources can sustain a sparse population. But, now with more than 1.5 billion Chinese, 1.2 billion Indians, and more than 6 billions other races, how can we feed, house, and even give decent living to the rest of the population? The Philippines alone has more than 100 million people with dwindling resources such as forest, rice lands, and fresh water sources. We used to be top rice exporter and producer in Asia, now we are number one importer. We used to have lush tropical rain forest, now we have denuded mountains that kill people during the typhoon or monsoon due to severe flooding. Add to that the increasing air and water pollution, the growing mountains of garbage, the rape of the mountains by illegal and legal miners. It will not be long, Philippines will become like Haiti with no natural resources except with its overpopulation. So, our able-bodied workers have no choice but to leave their family behind and prostitute and slave themselves to foreign countries just to feed their families while our bishops and priests are getting obese for overindulging in food, money, vices, and with their boy toys. They become the bad example of moral values that the Bible teaches. They started to introduce the Sodom and Gomorrah that God hated. Time for the faithful to examine their religion if the Catholic can really save their soul. No religion or religious person can save a soul, but only your faith and relationship to Jesus Christ according to His words in the Bible, not even your saint Calungsod, Mary, or those images of your false idols being encouraged by the Roman Catholic to pray for anything.

    Filipinos should multiply-  at the minimum to be fair to other non-Filipinos, at the most to somehow be successful but never to be enslaved or sexually offered/given to other folks.
    This is a horrible suggestion coming from a priest but it happens, its been happening and somehow the culture seems to have been the norm so we see it even in those places we perceived as the holiest.

    It’s time priests relearn their roles as shepherds of their flock.
    Unlike real shepherds who know each and every one of their sheep( and actually care for them), these priests are so busy inside their churches and convents that they know not of the realities of their flock. Rarely do you see, nowadays, roman catholic priests who actually visit their constituents, who actually have “supper” with them, nor teach them the blessings and the word of life through actually living the teachings of Jesus! No, they’re so comfortable building churches, collecting “offerings” and whatnot and so stuck with the stupid idea of letting people come to them instead of them coming to the people! No wonder nobody wants to become priests nowadays. Most of them look like professors giving lectures to students that don’t actually want them but go just for the “credits!”
    God! Reform the Church! Live the Word!

    Sometimes stupidity has no limits. Why you don’t quit priesthood, work like the rests of us marry & have a dozen of children then come back & preach what you have just said. Goodness. Sometimes you wonder what kind of education these priests have had.

    This bisho just confirmed why there is no hope left among Catholic Filipinos. It is unbelievable! For this dumb bishop poverty is not a problem and yet, he encourages Pinoys to work as maids and face daily abuses under their bosses abroad just so they can earn a few thousand pesos to send their relatives in the country.

    Bishop Garcera is saying it is not bad that parents can not put food on the table, provide clothing for their children, and send them to school. Having too many children is not bad because these children if they had the luck to survive and grow up, they can go abroad and enslave themselves with the Chinese and Arabs. 

    I am truly at a lost as to what to say to this bishop. I am happy on the other hand more and more Filipinos are leaving the Catholic church. I think they should hurry up.

    Philippines and to the world because it has increased the number of 
    overseas workers and migrants who could send remittances back home
    while  taking care of ageing people abroad and spreading the Christian
    faith.”

    This article shows clearly how a theological education can pervert a person.
    If we clear this bishops words from any phrases it means: If there is overpopulation and you and your family will not have enough to eat so you’re forced to leave your country, since you have no chance of getting work at home, that’s good for you and your church.
    How plain stupid!!
    For me and, I think most of the readers it makes sense to develop the Philippines in a way that they become a safe heaven for it’s population. To make the country a competitive fighter at the world market and avoid brain drain.
    This brain drain is the key for the bishops to stay in power. Since the dump masses might believe those pervert words of ‘overpopulation is good’. Smarter population means: people start thinking and questioning and that’s not good for a dogma issued by a priest.

    This idea is not doing any good to human population worldwide. It must be encourgaed in the Philippines that human population is still on its exponential growth. All other countries, even a very progressive China, are doing it. Simple analogy, a piece of land tilled by a family of farmers. As the number of the family grows, the proportion of what family member gets to work on decreases. Unless something must be done about this ( i.e. technology which many oppose and may also harm our environment ), the produce will not be enough. Sending them to take care of other people they are not even sure if they are safe should be the last alternative. It’s like sending them to hell. Please have a review of a lot of tragic experiences abroad. There is no place like home-although it will mean less financial offering. But I am confident that there will be more heart to the church.

    Let us be more realistic. I believe in the prescence of God who understands. Let us not divide the views of people by insisting own views. We are all learned and have the wisdom, given by God, to use it accordingly. History should not repeat itself. I need not expound on this.

    What a STUPID reason for a Bishop to say those words. Does he think that the Filipino is always to be working as caregiver or wives of foreigners. I think he need to go back to school to learn what he is talking about. The country can’t no longer support too much populations since the Church is keeping all the donations they can get. The churchs are suppose to help those in needs but look the other way. The church need to wake up and do their things to help. So the Bishop need to SHUT UP and do his part.

  • muddygoose

    According to the bishop: “overpopulation has been advantageous to the  Philippines and to the world because it has increased the number of  overseas workers and migrants.”

    Overpopulation, lack of education, poverty is good for you because you will be forced to leave your family and your home to work as an underpaid slave in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language and have very few family and friends.

IT IS SAD THE FILIPINOS HA S A BISHOP LIKE HIM THAT WILL MAKE THAT KIND OF COMMENT..HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL FILIPINOS

  • eirons1043

    Over population is good for the filipinos says Bishop Garcera.  If it is true that the Bishop said that then god help the Catholics. It is ok for the Bishop to see millions of street families scattered in all metro cities and if he does not know yet even the mountains of Rizal, Bulacan and Laguna are now full of Squatters and that is good according to his assessment. Also he should be informed that most OFWs are not dirt poor as most of them knows a craft or two that’s why they can migrate. Anyway much thanks for validating my doubt that Catholic Bishops are really Damasos and Torquemadas in their training and thinking.

    This just makes my blood boil! BUT In reality, this is the kind of thinking of most, if not all filipinos who  procreate till thy kingdom come and only think that maybe and perhaps one of their 11 kids would somehow marry a foreigner or work overseas as a maid, and liberates the parents from poverty and hardship. This individual (called bishop by some) is a microcosm represenation of the uninformed/misinformed, falsely educated ignorant class of filipinos, which numbers would be around the 75-90 million mark!

    Hay naku! at least he admits there is overpopulation. Dear Bishop, you know that we are looked upon with a certain curiosity and perhaps with a snicker from other nations because 10 percent of our population are forced to go abroad to work in other countries? It shows that we have failed to provide jobs foe our growing population. wouldnt it be better if we could slow our population growth and create a more inclusive economy and manage our wealth so that eventually, other nations will send their people here to work here for us? for me it is downright immoral that we send our workers abroad to do menial jobs for a pittance because there is no hope in their own country. You should read the opinions of residents of Singapore who look at pinoys as necessary evil. I once read an artidle from singapore that there were moves from citizens to foebid pinoys in their island from breeding like rats because some streets in singa were beginning to look dirty like Manila streets. And we want to breed more so we can call them bagong bayani and lament when they come home in boxes, some victims of heinous crimes. what about the social cost og children with dysfunctional families because one parent had to go abroad? Dear Bishop, review your statement. U.N. studies show pinoys give birth to 4 babies a minute. thats 1 classroom per 10 minutes. figure it out most reverend Bishop. Peace!

     maybe the good bishop is not in touch with reality.  In his pedestal, he can only see the rich and the middle class people who can afford to go to church. Anything over is bad.  What about the poor who cannot send anyone abroad? Does he know that it takes money to send someone abroad.  The RH bill was doomed to be passed because of our church leaders who are not in touch with the masses.
    Does he live with the masses? Maybe he should go out of his palace and see those people who cannot go to the edifice of the church because they have to take care of their children. 
    I’m a Catholic who is frustrated that the RH bill was passed because of the ignorance of our religious leaders and how they attacked pro-RH believers.

    What the Bishop said goes to show that he is really ignorant on the social cost of sending our kababayans abroad to work. My point is very simple. For a handful of dollars, Filipino caregivers look after their wards abroad exceptionally well but, in their absence from their homes, they cannot look after their own children. Where is the wisdom in this!

  • Roman31

    Yes it is easy for CBCP to say that big population is good for the Philippines because the Catholic Church does not provide the necessities of the poor, clothing and shelters, health care, education and other vital social overheads. Despite its enormous incomes through donations,contributions and businesses, it does not pay any taxes that will contribute to the operations of the national government. Yes, it is true that there are some token charities, but they are rare.  

    • akosimickeymouse

    The Vatican & The Knights of Malta: Owners of World’s Biggest Banks, Corporations, Societies
    The Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence; the biggest possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.The Pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century until now. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars! Yet, the hypocrite has made a recent comment about Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Together and people protesting, making it seem as if he is out to defend equality of all – when it is him and his corrupt organization that have been accumulating wealth by baby trafficking, abusing the masses, keeping them ignorant and infiltrating the nations in politics, economy, education, and more.Many people have not come to realize that the Jesuits are in fact one of the many corrupted religious orders of the evil organization known as the Catholic Church. The Vatican purposely uses different names – the old divide and conquer rule – to do exactly that, to infiltrate the nations without anyone ever being able to put all the pieces of the puzzle together to discover all the organized crimes they have employed worldwide.

    It is easy enough for the church to tell the poor to accept their poverty as God’s will when you yourself have warm clothes and plenty of food and medical care and a roof over your head and no worry about the rent. But if the church want people to believe them, then they must try to share their wealth and see if they will accept that as God’s will to them as well….even Catholics school is the highest in matrikula offers in its school around the country…do they the church is in God’s word…..or are they really helping the masses??? or they sucks the people’s wealth through offerings, donations and a not free church services like baptismal fee, matrimonal fee, and etc. withouth paying taxes….the church is enjoying this kind of money hauling from the people…..

    My dear bishop, confine yourself to theology. What you’re saying is the Filipino would forever be OFW (Overseas Fu**ing Workers) and caregivers. No chance of working a decent living in their homeland. Over population is a good thing? In the context of the Church it’s good. But haven’t you thought of over stretched finances, resources? Come to think about it. When a family is composed of 15 persons (12 kids + two parents), you buy one liter of coke accompanied by 15 straws. Sipsipan laang, bishop hindi tig-isang bote, magastos eh si tatay nagkakariton laang ng basura si nanay ay naglalabada. Mga pari hindi apectado, laging masasarap ang pagkain. Maraming nagbibigay na parishioners, nagpapalakas kay Father mabanggit laang sa misa.

    Reading his comments is going to give me brain cancer as I cannot reconcile the failure of logic! Let me get this. He is saying its our God or manifest destiny to be the “alipin” of the (white man, arab, or whoever is willing to pay for our serivices) such as caregiver. Not to diss caregivers. they provide a valuable serivice to mainly industrialized counrtries elderly but to say that the caregivers are caregivers because it is their Christian duty is a very retarded and miopic view. OFWs would rather work and live with their families, not toil in a foreign country at abhorent places like in Saudi Arabia where you cannot openly practice being a Catholic- pray, wear a crucifix or even eat Lechon.  It does not take a genius to figure out why OFW’s endure years of seperation from their families-its Economic and lack of better opportunities in the homeland, unlike the bishop that is well fed and housed by the church, OFW’s like me have to work overseas to feed, clothe and educate our family or relatives back in the Philippines. People like him, and there seems to be many in the Roman Catholic church has turned me off completely from going to mass or giving them respect. These Holy men are no diffrent from the Pharasees who condomened Jesus, fixated with verses and the book but blind to what is going on around them. It seems that they are interested in promoting the breeding of dumb, ignorant and subservient  people to increase their flock,(or be a much esteemed pedi cab driver) and for the ones who can work to support the population…be the OFW! Oh to trick a muslim family to sing a christian prayer is just wrong, in their faith which the bishop has no respect for, they can be tried for blasphemy and stoned to death for that. I would rather not be an OFW, Its more fun in the Philippines but it will even be better if we dont have to comute so far from the family. I think the RH bill is a step to the right direction for empowerment of young poor mothers and provide the knowledge and means to manage our population to those who need it the most. With more quality education and family planning our country can be much better. being an OFW is a desperate measure to bring food to the table and a life out of poverty. This should not be long term govt policy. How many times I have heard of stories that an OFW kid has turned into a drug addled teenager or a pregnant 15 year old because the parents cant be there to watch them as they should, but have to watch someone elses children that is where the money is to feed the family.   There is an opening for a Bishop in Sudan or Somalia if the Bishop would want to spread his manifest destiny.

    It saddens me that some people use the high OFW remittances as a reason that overpopulation of the country is good. No disrespect to OFW’s who work so hard, but what does that say about the country when so many are forced to leave and work abroad?! That says the country can’t provide a living for its people. The basic necessities of food, shelter, and clothing can’t even be met, forcing people to seek them elsewhere. Yes, remittances are keeping the economy afloat, but that shouldn’t even be the case at all.

    This is why so many are angry at the Church. They live in a bubble. Yes, it’s nice to have all these values and preach them, but what happens when reality can’t keep up with that? These priests are so out of touch with reality. I’m a junior intern that has had rotations in many public hospitals. If only these priests would even look at the OB and Pedia wards and even talk to the pregnant women and mothers there. Most of them can’t afford to have children. Seryoso, maaawa ka na lang sa mga kwento nila kung gaano kahirap ang buhay nila. Why won’t the Church help them on their own instead of making dumb statements like these?!

    What was said by the bishop on overpopulation is something awkward, I think. Though the remittances of the OFWs are what’s keeping the country floating and alive, going abroad to work is never an advantage especially to the family. Same remittances are what keeps the leaders abusing by getting loans from foreign sources and pour them into doleouts. In Christian values, the OFWs sacrifice in other countries due to high unemployment in the country, leaving the family as a trade off, doesn’t speak of true Chistian practice as what the Holy Family had exemplified. God bless this bishop!

    overpopulation caused poverty which forced filipinos to become migrant workers like health care workers and forced their aging parents to have no children to take care and splitting families and resulted to decatholicization of many filipinos due to hopelessness.

      This is all and main Pilipino’s colonial heritage supposedly christian, doing every things for money.
      Believers or not, Jesus message is Love in the way of life, 
      not money by “hook or by crook” as it can be easily observed in the Philippines society daily life. 
      The price to pay for that is the total destruction of the country and peoples, 
      including the yearly children’s death rate of few hundreds thousands, for lack of healths care, fake medicines, expensive water, no proper food. 
      The survivors will enjoy at school, fake text books for the lucky one and the parents need money to bribe the ” The teachers patronage fees “. 
      This show there is no love for the country, but for money, OFW is a moderne form of slavery in most of the cases, for family survival in a tough environment under total destruction by illegal practice under government and administration supposedly “control”. Ampatuan’s clan is only one of them. 
      Money and control for the conservative Clergy and elites clans, 1% of the population, 
      with a “genetical”rapist colonial inheritance, everything is done to give a harsh live to the masses to produce juicy masses money, peoples are considered like cheap merchandise with no value if they don’t have money. Money became a measurement tool to determine individuals trade value. Self respect and dignity are forgotten values.

      THE CLERGY IS TRAGICALLY PERVERTED DOING THE BEST HE CAN TO KEEP THE COUNTRY BACKWARD TO PROTECT A FEUDAL SYSTEM FAVORABLE TO THEM, IT’S ONLY A MONEY QUESTION OF, BUSINESS AS USUAL ! 
      NOTHING TO DO WITH JESUS MESSAGE OF ” PEACE, LOVE, AND SHARE ! “

    Just by reading your reactions, i can say that the RH bill is indeed necessary. By the way you people speak and think, your bloodlines should stop for it would bring more lowly bred people in this world. Perhaps, the RH Bill seeks to control “over population” of narrow minded people who are likely to be destructive than to stimulate progress. Clearly, our nation have become a country of senseless people who are hypocrites to their faith- if they have any faith at all. For what will become of a nation trying to rise at the expense of their religion- trying to sound wise at the expense of disrespecting other’s opinions- trying to be better by being worst. Bishops may not always say the right words for they are only humans, but your comments are worst than the bishops who are defending the belief of their religion. It reflects the disrespectful nature of poorly bred Filipino. 

    • Twister12

      Every actions has opposite & equal reactions. I agree that some of the words used here are uncalled for but defending once belief is different from shoving it to your mouth. If these bishops & priests are humans(as your argument), then so are we, the ordinary citizens. In my opinion it is more “low bred” or stupid by just accepting whatever these bishops said w/o questions than expressing oneself’s beliefs & opinion.

    Pigilan ninyo ako mga apo, pigilan ninyo ako at baka sa edad kong eto saka pa ako
    mapapasabak ng suntukan sa Obispong ito. Hindi niya alam ang pinagsasabi niya na
    duty daw nating mga pilipino ang maging caregiver sa ibang bansa.Pwee ikaw mag
    caregiver para malaman mo ang hirap ng kumita ng pera sa ibang bansa. Kung nasa
    tabi ko lang ikaw baka napalo kita ng tunkod ko..Hayyss tumataas na naman presyon
    ko mga apo..

    Look at the comments which contain inappropriate language. Intellectual progress of the Filipinos have gone down along with moral and ethical progress. After my comments, there would be a lot more.. as expected.. from these kind of Filipinos. 

  • Jobo Briones Llaguno

    The Bishop was merely correlating over population with overseas employment and trying to extract some religious purpose from it. At some point, we’ve become a “Blessing” to other nations. Things happen for a reason. That’s it, so why the violent reaction? Because some people’s comprehension are more of the snap judgment type. Just Read and react, when it should be- Read- comprehend- then you react.

      “Things happen for a reason”? an idiotic and stupid belief.
      This notion belongs to religious bigots since time immemorial, and is continuously being preached today.

      As Bertrand Russell said, “There is, as we all know, a law that if you throw dice you will get double sixes only about once in thirty-six times, and we do not regard that as evidence that the fall of the dice is regulated by design;
      on the contrary, if the double sixes came every time we should think that there was design”.

      Which comes to a point when you ask “why are all these things happening” and the most probable answer would be it is because God wants them and that he himself only knows why, until you arrive on question what is the reason why there was God, and people or you will say that God himself was not subject to that law.
      Then suddenly, you found out that something or someone was not subject to that belief “things happen for a reason’.
      The argument suddenly stops there..

    Why these Bishops wants to have over population in the Philippines? Maraming batang lalaki mag lilingkod at sasamba sa kanila pati sa kama! Alam ko yan kasi pamangkin ko 12 year old binabati daw sya at isinubo ng kanilang pari noong na serve pa sya sa kumbento. pag wala ng over population sa Pilipinas wala ng maraming batang lalaki na syang gawin nilang sex slaves. mag pakatutuo kayo!

    Hindi ako PRO RH Bill kasi para sa akin hindi na kailangan ng batas para may Sex education sa lahat kasi kami noong 11 year old ako it was 1991 sa panahon ni Cory Aquino, nasa Bundok pa kami nag aaral, sa PEHM subject namin may sex education na kaya iniisip ko ang RH bill ay redundancy nalang kasi naituro na dati ang sex education bakit itinigil. Sa Pagka intindi ko kasi ang RH bill ay dag-dag gastos nalang sa gobyerno. Gayun pa man kahit hindi ako pabor sa naisabatas na RH bill, tututol din ako sa over population kasi ito ay dahilan ng kahirapan.

    May mga iilan na naging successful sa sexual abstinence pero majority hindi kaya mas maigi gumamit ng mabisang paraan para ma control ang over population.

    So Kayo Bishop/./ sorry kayo.. paubo na nag mga boy na ginagawa nyong dedehan ng gatas.

      kapag dyan sa Saudi Arabia mag sermon,seguradong mapuputol ang ulo ng Bishop na ito, tapos pasok ulit si Binay na hihingi ng 44milyon pesos para pang tubos ..para hindi maputulan ng ulo.

      • Twister12

        In my opinion what Binay is doing is just pa pogi.Kelan pa sya nagkaroon ng malasakit sa OFW if not election time kahit anino hindi mo yan makikita.

  • roy roy

    It’s nice to be able to disagree with a bishop. Just imagine the days of Rizal or your grandparents. We’ve come a long way. I hope we deserve this freedom, by being decent and humble always.

    I am not a Catholic but there should always be respect even with enemies. How you conduct yourself is as important as the force of your logic. God bless mga Pinoy!

    This has got to be the most twisted logic I have ever heard. Leave your families and your country and go take care of the foreigners in other countries? Wow!

    • Ilihanboy

      this bishop should be the first to be an OFW to wash the anus of old foreigners. then he can send his earnings to the people of Daet who are incapable of knowing that they have a retard of a bishop in their midst.

      people of Daet,,,rise and remove this pedophile and pimp in your midst ! is this guy’s opinion reflective of the catholic church thinking ? what a shame !

  • EdDelaCruz

    Don’t be so quick to judge. One of these OFW maids or homeless children might change  the world.

    I think a BISHOP understands the bible and Christianity alot better
    than you do. Don’t be mad because god’s will is for Filipinos to be
    indentured servants. That is just being a sore loser. You can’t just
    dispute god’s will. If it was the other way around and other
    countries were sending their citizens here to change the diapers of our
    elderly then we we would be delighted.Let’s just make sure we have
    enough maids and prostitutes to satisfy the demand here at home before
    we go exporting anymore quality OFWs. . That way the OFWs can stay here at home with their families which they have no means to provide for.
    We can abuse them just as well as any other country.
     

    • Twister12

      God’s will? Wow that’s something. If I follow you correctly all what is happening now is God’s will. Even when a dog dies or a cat ran by a car is his will too.

      • EdDelaCruz

         I guess you never heard of doggie heaven. There is no cat heaven though. There is a cat hell. It’s called dog heaven.

       God’s will is just a mask and an excuse to impose the will of these moron minded bishops.  They are the hypocrites that Christ would like to get rid of.  These bishops would like Filipinos to languish in poverty so they can preserve their robes and cassocks. 100 million Filipinos in dot islands, are you kidding me?  And on top of that, these bishops horde the resources that should be distributed to the poor people.

    Tell me this is a joke…Bishops’ sound reasoning is clouded by their dogma. For God’s sake! it came to me that their advocate is bondage, colonial mentality and slavery.  Overpopulation comprising the upper and middle class is good for the country but exponential growth of poor Filipinos is out of context.  You cannot send uneducated OFWs.  They aren’t from the poorest of the poor which in reality are factory of less fortunate children.  I’ll support the Anti RH advocates unless the Bishops will produce funds to send these people to better school, provide them food, shelter and clothing out from their own pockets and substantial portion of their church collections to support health care and social infrastructures.  Bunch of hypocrites!

  • lime7192

    Indeed, these men in the cassocks are way devoid of understanding the true reality on the ground. The clergy’s logic is only equal or only less better than a grader pupil in school.  
    I have been an OFW for 27 years now. I lost my family, never saw my children grew up and have been and will be in servitude in foreign land until the day I die. I left priesthood several decades ago knowing fully well that I would not be able to provide for my parents and siblings being in the church. I was among those called, but not chosen.Such statement from Gilbert Garcera was irresponsible and was a desperate and last ditch attempt to befuddle the minds of the people on the real issue behind the RH Bill. The will of the people had already won. They now have the power over the bondage of poverty. Their will will ensure that none of their children and their children’s children will enslave themselves in foreign land to feed their loved ones at home.VOX POPULI VOX DEI. OUR WILL AS THE PEOPLE, and NOT THE CHURCH, is THE TRUE VOICE OF GOD. We have Spoken. The Church Must Listen.

    • chingnarciso

      The church must listen.=Do you know that the church have disease called selective hearing? Only sounds they could hear are katching katching,sounds of money being drop in to their donation boxes,or the sound of a Pajero…sorry my friend,I’m  being sarcastic only..Happy New Year and Peace be w/ you and to all my fellow Pilipinos all over the world being enslave by the foreigners..lol

  • teraytaray

    when i was younger, there were no pedicabs, we didn’t need them  because tricycles are enough.   but our numbers grew, tricycles got costly so people resort to pedicabs. my mom singlehandedly raised us four children being a dressmaker. we lived a very simple life, we never skipped meals even though having chicken or pork is rare on our dinner table. we finished our high school, in a public school, of course. Marcos was the President then, so the corruption is already there. my point is, even if the Philippines has very minimal corruption (it is not realistic for one country to have 0% corruption), we still need to manage our population. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/H5OZ4KYV6U7TTLUN3A3RU2DXYQ juan masikap

    Baluktot pala pananaw ng mga bishops, ang over population daw ay mabuti para sa pilipinas dahil dadami ang mga pilipinong magpapaalila sa ibang bansa, at ang mga mahihirap daw ang mas nanakatulong kaysa mayayaman, pambihira, nakanakaloko!

  • disqusted0fu

    a big population is beneficial for any country, as long as it is handled correctly. but since the administration does not seem to know how to do that, then they will just limit it. band aid solution. thats what they like doing, the easier but not the wiser way out. noynoying indeed

    • Twister12

      Really? Pls. pray tell us how to do it maybe you can enlighten us. Philippine population is more than 103 million. Now compared this to any progressive countries in Europe. France – 63m, UK-62m, Italy – 60m, Spain – 46M. Germany as wealthy as they are has only 81M! 

    • EdDelaCruz

      Why is it the responsibility of the government to support your children? How about not having children that you can’t support?
      There isn’t a government anywhere that “handles” it’s population “correctly” in terms of raising it’s poor up out of the slums.
      An individual can raise himself up by providing for himself and his family and not being a drain on society.
      Are you waiting for some politicians to undo the mess that God’s word has made?

      • disqusted0fu

        if the government has enough education programs and they create more job opportunities for the people, then majority would be able to do what you are saying. but with this kind of administration, who is more concerned about their image and popularity, this is highly unlikely.

      • Twister12

        You really don’t get it do you? How can you provide jobs w/ the never ending explosion of the population? I will sum up it to you in a very simple manner. Let’s say a home (ur home) can accommodate only 4 persons &   purposely you added 4 more whose fault that be? I bet w/ your kind of thinking it is not yours.

      • disqusted0fu

        surely! ill do exactly what this administration is doing. ill blame my problem on someone or something else.

      • Twister12

        If that is so I’ll rest my case. But as the government doesn’t want to feed your children better control it otherwise they will end up in slums breeding like rabbits like you do. It will be hard but for consolation you still have the government to blame LOL.

      • disqusted0fu

        you can say the same to the president and his administration.

      • Twister12

        Really my sympathy w/ u. It’s the government’s fault why you can’t stop your urge to breed like rabbits & their inability to feed them LOL.

      • EdDelaCruz

         The same could be said about the church. Allocate resources for the education and employment of it’s followers. Why are they exempt?

    • Twister12

      I bet you’re blaming the government for not feeding your dozens of children. People should breed like rabbits after all the government will take care of them. Now that is something of a revolutionary idea. Maybe in asylum  LOL

    • MelorisV

      O since these Bishops and Priests says overpopulation is good for the Filipinos. Why don’t they open their schools and hospitals for the poor people for FREE. (forget about us middle class and above)  This will be the essence of a true “charity” and “piety”. Should I remind you people that these schools and hospitals run by priests and nun are also one of the most expensive in the country.

        Maganda sana ang suggestion mo pero sa kabilang banda, saan kukuha ng ipangsasahod sa mga empleyado na hindi naman pari o madre? Alangan namang magtrabaho ang mga iyon ng libre?
        Meron namang slots na ibinibigay ang mga ganitong schools/hospitals para sa mga indigent or mahihirap pero karapat-dapat na mag-avail ng tulong….

      • http://www.facebook.com/ellebullo Ellee R. Bullo

        sa tingin mo ba ung slots nila sapat na makakapag educate ng mga mahihirap? kasi sa tingin ko mas madami ang kabig ng ginansya ng mga catholic schools kesa sa charity and scholarships..

      • $5699914

         Hindi sapat kung ikukumpara sa bilang ng mahihirap. Pero hindi lang dapat sila ang kumikilos rito, dapat pati yung mahihirap na nagnanais ng tulong ay tumutulong rin para mapagaan ang bigat ng pagdadala ng problema…pero mabibilang mo lang naman sa daliri ang mahihirap na may ganyang mentalidad…

        Nasubukan mo na bang magtayo at mag-maintain ng isang negosyo?

        Bayarin sa pasahod, maintenance bills, utility bills, taxes, and the big chunk of miscellaneous expenses being accorded for every money that comes in to the business….not to mention the allocation of funds for future expansion/developmental plans of the business.

        Hindi ko sinasabi na lahat ng catholic-run (or any religious organization for that matter) businesses ay stain-free….pero naglalagay rin ako ng benefit of the doubt dahil may kaunti rin akong experensiya sa naramdaman ko ang mga hirap at sarap ng pagpapatakbo ng isang negosyo…look at the big picture and be objective when observing…that way, mas may kabuluhan ang magiging pasya mo sa huli…

    How many OFW families have been torn apart because one parent was abroad,battling loneliness and hardships just so he can feed his family? Whether he is killed, jailed or philandering, the family suffers from his absence. As someone posted previously, baluktot nga ang pananaw ng pari na ito. This isn’t surprising since he has no idea what raising a family entails. Let him make the same sacrifices our brother and sisters abroad are making, then let him speak if overpopulation is wonderful.

  • MelorisV

    Diyos ko po! Hibang ang Bishop na ito! Una kung spreading the Christian faith? Saan sa Middle East kung hindi ka kulong, deport, or worse papatayin ka. Kung mag-aasawa ka naman it’s either tanggapin mo yung relihiyon nila or mamanahin ng anak ang paniwawala ng asawa mo. Ang dami kayang nagpalit ng relihiyon dahil sa trabaho, sulsol, bf, gf,etc sa Middle East.

    Pangalawa, God’s Plan? Kaya tayo tinatawag na “Nation of Servants” dahil puro kasambahay, yaya, caregiver, etc. ang pinapadala natin halos. Hindi ko sa minamata sila pero ako bilang isang Pinoy nangarap din naman ako na sana ang mga dayuhan naman ang mangamuhan at manilbihan sa atin. Mas maigi iyon hindi ba? Hindi na tayo kailangan lumabas pa ng bansa para maghanap ng trabaho at mawalay sa pamilya at mahal sa buhay. 

    At dami kayang nasirang pamilya dahil sa nag-abroad yung Mr. o Mrs. Higit pa duon hindi nila nakitang lumaki at nagabayan ang mga anak nila. Yung ibang kakilala ko ilang taon ng hindi nakakauwi sa pamilya niya (dahil TNT siya sa US). Yan ba ang gusto ng mga hipokritong Bishop na ito? Halatang walang alam sa sinasabi. Tapos eto yung mga kumokontra sa RH billl. Mag-isip isip kayo mga kababayan ko. Huwag kayong magpalinlang sa mga Pari at Bishop na ito. 

  • baitcaster

    Over a thousand comments and the blogs still come. Never a dull moment with Bishop Garcera. You really stirred up the hornet’s nest this time, Father.  Was it your intent to tell the OFWs to make a virtue out of a necessity, as the old Jesuits would say? It wouldn’t work because what you did was to decree the destiny of the Filipino people, for the cream of our youth to work in the service of other lands, and for our women to console the lonely men there.

    The Filipino diaspora has always been fueled by economic reasons, even when waves of Filipinos enlisted in the US Navy two or three generations ago. Too many people in the country, too few lucrative jobs. Thus the RH Bill. Since there’s no way you can justify your insensitive comments, please be humble enough and apologize to the OFWs, to our women, and to the country as a whole.
