To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

OUTSIDE, the Bill Fight Tale

This day has been eventful for me keeping track on the latest issue in the Phils. It has been days since the PCSO and the Media have been conspiring disseminating  info on Phil. Bishops's charitable activities making issues on the aid funds by the government's charity agency which in fact, never an issue at all as both the church and the state work hand in hand to do programs that help the poor and.....taaaaadaaanng.!...the Senate hearing today proved that the publicity claim and spreading misinformation against our Bishops are  just bunches of big and fat lies.

This certainly shows how dishonesty is tolerated in the country and media is the key role in this ill-mentality that shapes the society  detestably. After all, the bottom line is MONEY and of this purpose of degrading the Church so whatever these Birth Control Advocates imposed would seemingly soak straight without the Church's opposition.

The Catholic Church condemns  contraception even way back the ancient times. There were  pressures  before 1968 of the Church to change this doctrine  like what other denominations did  that made Pope Paul VI  RENEWED the BAN on Birth Control in the Catholic Church through the HUMANE VITAE (of Human Life). The major reasons, yes, lots of them are in my other writings in this blog.

This Reproductive Health  Bill  and of abortion advocacy have been pushed in the country by various NGOs headed by the PLCPD, WGNRR,  Planned Parenthood-the leading abortion provider in the US etc and even in the past, the attempts never succeeded and just this term, of Aquino administration, this bill has been intensified as the President himself is into this Project. Perhaps of him waiting for the EU's million dollar euros and the US's million-dollar reward once this bill be passed.

However, this bill is asking for the Filipino tax money of at least, three to five billion a year. One of the reasons  the general public opposes to. Why the heck the government should spend billions of pesos a year for population control when these funds can be spent  in genuine human development as agricultural training, farming livestock, small-medium enterprises and the like that definitely provide jobs, income and yes, boost the Philippine economy and lowers fertility? And so the war is on in the Philippines unfortunately, initiated by these RH pushers and abortion advocates and nope, not against the people but against the Church.

They have to destroy the Church's credibility so whatever the Church's stand specifically for opposing this RH Bill would be invalidated. I can admit there's  chaos in the country as these anti-Church are even using the name "Catholic" in their  drive of destruction, perhaps to convince and brainwashed the weak.

The PCSO was a good show, it was great the TRUTH came out today and it proves how desperate these anti-Church are in their agenda of putting down the Catholic Bishops. And who are these people, of course those who are serving the current administration. If people can learn to at least think OUTSIDE of the box and see the country in another light and how things are being manipulated  primarily by the MEDIA, apparently, all boil down to the Catholic Church's  assassination plan  by virtue of the Mother Church's fight against  this RH Bill. 

There's no way the priest, bishops and the true Catholics would turn their back to the teachings and that RH is   bottoms-up and top-down NO-NO. These  reproductive rights advocates including those who claim Catholics  have nothing else in mind but to play the unfair game.  This is outside of the context of  insisting harmful and dissipated bill, isn't it?
