http://www.mydailyrace.com/?p=2376 <— What the RH Bill is All About
Above is a link of Ms. Pia Cayetano‘s post regarding what the RH Bill really is. read FYI. Getting pissed of religious entities trying to influence the government with socio-economic irrationality. What’s more irritating is that some IGNORANT people in twitter think that the harsh rain is God’s means to punish the Philippines for its pursuit of the implementation of the RH Bill. Di ba nila alam na yung pinaka-naapektuhan dito yung populasyon ng mga mahihirap? Ang populasyon na nabuo dahil sa kakulangan sa kaalaman tungkol sa Family Planning?
Can’t they see the bigger picture of things? The world doesn’t revolve on blindly following what the bible says. If that were the case then ALL PRIESTs and SEMINARIANs should be asked to “Go Forth and Multiply” as well. How come you guys abstain yourselves from helping “God’s” vision? Why don’t you lead the frontier and take action, instead of uttering mere words? If you want people to believe what you preach, practice it. I wonder if these people who go about “pro-life”, showing no concern regarding the magnitude of our population’s rise, realize how it is in the slums where most of the poor people have lots of babies and barely survive because they are unable to provide for them.
Clearly there are lots of conflicts in the Bible, and I beg to disagree, when they say that life as we know of today should be based on this literature alone. There are even extreme statements there stating that “man should not lie with his own, otherwise he shall feel the fires of hell” or something like that. This statement means that Homosexuals shall be burned to death, but where are homosexuals now in our society? They are free. Some of them are even in the CHURCH for crying out loud! This shows that the complexity of life is beyond the dictates of any literature, especially one that was composed thousands of years ago.
Another thing… I read something about some religious entity saying that “P-Noy won because of their support”, “we have 6 million votes with us”, etc, SO WHAT ARE THESE ENTITIES TRYING TO SAY? In the most basic sense, I translate it as BLACKMAIL. These kinds of messages, reminding P-Noy of the support that they have given him, is like asking for a sense of gratitude. To be frank, repayment.
They expect P-Noy to adhere to their wants because of the support that they have given him?? All I can say is PATHETIC. What happened to the teachings of Jesus regarding giving without expecting anything in return? LOL
“You are killing babies with the use of contraceptives”, “This bill will kill our nation”. It’s as if the population will really be killed if we pursue this bill. Does the Anti-RH group support the massive rise of our population, whereas the biggest families actually belong to the marginalized? Yes, we can say that the Filipino population is huge, but what percentage of that population live comfortably and are able to support themselves?
RH Bill gives those who are concerned an option. It doesn’t seek to enforce. It isn’t about implementing rules nor a strict lifestyle, it’s about giving the people a CHOICE by spreading AWARENESS. Unfortunately, it seems that the Catholic Church is against FREEDOM and AWARENESS. They tend to contradict anything that is against their beliefs. NOT ALL FILIPINOS ARE CATHOLIC. Again this shows freedom of choice, and the diversity that life offers to us. We should not be bounded by the ideologies of any single entity.
In no way am I affiliated with P-Noy, but I actually salute him for having the courage and standing for what’s right for our countrymen. I am a Catholic myself, but when I see this amount of bullshit, damn.. No offense to all those who are religious, or to the Anti-RH people, but you guys should understand what life is all about, it is beyond the enclosure of what religion dictates to us. Try looking around and think of the stature of the country holistically. Pro life nga, ang daming ngang mga bata, di naman mapalaki ng maayos, nagiging criminal, nagugutom, kulang sa education, walang tirahang matino, gusto nyo pa lalo paramihin? Oo nabuhay nga sila at tumungtong sa mundong to, pero tingen nyo sa nararanasan ng maraming mahihirap ngayon hindi ba’t parang pinapatay na rin sila dahan dahan sa hirap ng buhay?Dapat may balanse, yung rami ng tao ay dapat kaya supportahan ng i-straktura ng bansa.
Funny thing is that the Philippines is the only Catholic practitioners in Asia but we are heralded as one of the most corrupt, before P-Noy entered the scene. Another thing would be the fact that the teachings of the Bible preach all about peace, loving one another, but history has proved us the opposite. Religion has been the source of many WARS, Killings, Prosecutions, Hunting of so-called “witches” and what have you, all for the sake of enforcing the teachings of the church. Ironic huh?
I suggest reading about Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. People think they know of the truth, but from the start, the “so-called” truth has been fed to them because they are only allowed to look in one direction. The truth can only be discovered once you have dared to take a look at the directions you never knew existed.
I dare all those who are Anti-RH Bill to do as they say and “go forth and multiply”. Inconsiderate Hypocrites. That’s all.
