|At least the plate is intact.|
In other news, the Church here in Manila threatens the Philippine President with excommunication for supporting the RH bill which is intended to promote smarter sex education and women's rights more than the misconceived legal murders the religious abusive authorities wish you to believe. Whatever happened to the separation of Church and State? How dare the Church literally threaten the President of a country! Their actions would be considered an act of terrorism had they been Muslim! Here's hoping the President sees this fact and acts accordingly on it.
|I don't want bullies in the positions of power.|
Let me repeat that: The Church had a guy who protested against their views locked up.
|The Church embraces more and more the actions and mindset of the|
very things it used to struggle against. How sad.
And is the Church really that omnipotent now that they can act as if the President was someone they can bully?
I was born a Catholic. I was raised a Catholic. I still strongly hold fast to my faith. I still pray. I still keep certain Holy days sacred and holy. But damn.. right now, I feel ashamed to be a Catholic. I feel ashamed to be affiliated to a Church that has the attitudes of a school yard bully, that has the gall to self-righteously claim to be on a moral higher ground while acting in so many ways against the very teaching Jesus Christ himself has always taught us.
I am ashamed of how the Church is acting right now.
Very very deeply ashamed.
"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is not strange if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 RSV)
I so see this right now.
