Coolness! I just read the headlines of the Inquirer today. It seems that the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines "walked" out of Philippine Senate and REFUSE to take part in any further talks regarding Reproductive Health Bill 5043. They say that the lawmakers had no intentions of ever taking into account what they had to say, so why should they even bother participating. Oh my gosh. What a bunch of brats.
Well. GOOD! The CBCP is finally learning it's place. They never should have had a say regarding this issue to begin with!
So all I can say here is this: "Yo! Bishops. Don't let the door hit your asses on the way out, Ok?You should really start concentrating on other more important things like saving souls, teaching morals, feeding people, weaning yourselves off allowances made through gambling (PAGCOR), and restoring your crumbling heritage churches. Those issues alone should keep you busy for years. You priests should really stop meddling in things you know nothing about: Like SEX."
Sound bite by Senator Biazon:
“This is an affair of the State. The State must respond to the needs of the people,” he said. “If the teachings of the Church are against the use of modern artificial contraception, the Church should touch base with their flock. They should go to the pulpit, and teach. I hope they’re fair when they do this.”
Fair? Ha. I doubt it. So let's stay vigilant, y'all. We are one step closer to having the bill passed.
It's been a good weekend.
