WHY IS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S WALK FOR LIFE AN EPIC FAIL?

The Philippine Catholic Church in its bid to regain its waning political influence, staged the Walk For Life last February 18. In a country where more than 4/5 are Catholic, they were able to gather a measly 10,000 warm bodies. Hakot pa yon since many Catholic schools required their students to attend. Susmio!

The mass mobilization is supposed to condemn EJKs, go against the reimposition of death penalty, is against abortion, and is totally against same sex marriage. The cause is divisive but is respectable considering the freedom of religion and the right to an opinion that are rights respected in the Philippines. But what makes the event a farce is that it was a rally of the ultra conservatives who are quick to judge but has as its guest of honor the poster girl of home wrecking, sexual harassment, and drug coddling, Leila De Lima.

In a predominantly Catholic country that adores Pope Francis, why did this walk not even generate 100,00 people? Simply because the Philippine Catholic Church is full of hypocrisy and double standards. While it is quick to pontificate on moral issues, it fails to clean its ranks of priests who are pedophiles, child molesters, and rapists. The Philippine Church also has priests with children and families. Truth to tell, some are even married but remain priests! Por Dios por santo!

And let us not forget the corrupt and abusive princes of the church who live in luxury in the midst of poverty. To make things worse, in a stupid attempt of public relations suicide, the church has embraced the likes of Leila De Lima while it openly criticized a very popular and reformist president, Duterte.

What then can the Catholic Church do to remain relevant? Stay out of politics and stick to spiritual things.

If the Catholic Church just confines itself to helping the poor and the oppressed; gives away its land and vast properties to the marginalized; stop being beholden to its corrupt and immoral benefactors; and surrender their sexual predators to the justice system and expel all their corrupt princes, then maybe the Filipinos will believe they are real.

But for now, they remain to be pontificating men in long dresses with a dwindling audience. Walk your talk, fathers. Gone are the days of Damaso when Catholics cower in fear of you. Now we see you as you are – sinful, pretentious, and starved for power.

    Eto yung matagal ko ng hinahanap na talata sa Bibliya tungkol sa sinasabi kong walang Gobyerno na hindi itinalaga ng Dyos. Romans:13 verse 1 to 7.1.Ang bawat tao’y dapat pasakop sa mga pinuno ng pamahalaan, sapagkat walang pamahalaang hindi mula sa Diyos, at ang Diyos ang nagtatag ng mga pamahalaang umiiral. 2.Kaya nga, ang lumalaban sa pamahalaan ay lumalaban sa itinakda ng Diyos; at sila’y paparusahan. 3.Ang mga pinuno ay hindi dapat katakutan ng taong gumagawa ng mabuti. Ang mga gumagawa lamang ng masama ang dapat matakot. Kung ayaw mong matakot sa mga namumuno, gumawa ka ng mabuti, at pararangalan ka nila. 4.Sila’y mga lingkod ng Diyos para sa ikabubuti mo. Ngunit kung gumagawa ka ng masama, dapat kang matakot dahil sila’y may kapangyarihang magparusa. Sila’y mga lingkod ng Diyos, na nagpaparusa sa mga gumagawa ng masama. 5.Kaya nga, dapat kayong pasakop sa kanila, hindi lamang upang hindi kayo maparusahan, kundi alang-alang na rin sa inyong budhi. 6.Iyan din ang dahilan kung bakit kayo nagbabayad ng buwis. Ang mga pinuno ng pamahalaan ay mga lingkod ng Diyos at ito ang kanilang tungkulin. 7.Ibigay ninyo sa bawat isa ang nararapat sa kanya. Magbayad kayo sa mga dapat bayaran at magbigay kayo ng buwis sa dapat buwisan; igalang ninyo ang dapat igalang at parangalan ninyo ang dapat parangalan.

  7. The Church maintains its power and influence where poverty and ignorance breed. That is why it wants the poor to remain poor and the ignorant to remain ignorant making education expensive and exclusive to the those who cam afford it.

  10. Please teach your catholic members not to be criminals and follow the Law. Make a survey of all criminals in all the jails in PH and you will find that 90% of them are all CATHOLIC MEMBERS and that because you failed in your religous ordinances. How sad for centuries you dominate religion in Ph yet we have highest crime in our own land. There is a nees for change in you mission and leadership.

  15. The main reason why this bishops, priests and the CBCP wil move heaven and hell and are bent on discrediting mayor Du30 it’s because of the closures of the various mining companies and their contracts. Take note that the billions and billions of pesos of the Philippine catholic church were invested thru shares of stocks in various mining companies. And now their billion peso shares of stocks are nothing but paper.

  17. History 1: Characters are Padre Damaso at iba pang pari, mga Indio at iba pang mga ignoranteng Pilipinong gustong sakupin ng mga Kastila sa pamamagitan ng krus at espada. Ending? Tagumpay ang Kastila dahil ang mga Indio ay mangmang, ang mga nakapag-aral ay ambisyoso at traydor. Nakita ko ngayon ang tambalan ng character ni Andres Bonifacio at Jose Rizal sa katauhan ni Duterte- may utak, may tamang layunin, may tamang paraan, matapang at may malasakit sa bayan. Panahon na ng totoong pagbabago.
