Ok, this post has nothing to do with comics. I really don’t talk about politics or religion in this blog, unless it has something to do with comics. But I would like to make an exception now. If talk of RELIGION puts you off or offends you in any way, please feel free to skip this blog post as I’m not interested in any religious debate. I’m simply putting down what I believe so you guys can have this understanding of who I am.
My wife Ilyn recently wrote an article on her blog about being Catholic with regards to the RH Bill. She does not say whether she is for or against the bill, but she has a lot to say about the Catholic Church’s behavior in this whole affair. And you know what? I completely agree with her. It’s what I had been thinking about for such a long time and I’ve been trying to mull over what to say. She went ahead and said everything I wanted to say, and she said it pretty well. If you have time, please go on ahead and visit her blog at the link below.
Ok…I Really Have to Talk About This…
I think the Catholic Church in the Philippines is finally drawing the line. It’s either you’re in or you’re out. And like Ilyn says, this is not the proper way of reaching out to their flock. It forces us to draw our own lines, and I truly hate it if it comes down to this.
I think the leadership of the Catholic Church in this country has a lot to think about this Holy Week. They need to think of the following words: Understanding. Compassion. LOVE. Their actions of late have been so un-Christian that as a Catholic, I am very disappointed.
