Comments on: President Aquino’s contraception plan angers Philippines Catholic Church Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: steven-204 Wed, 27 Oct 2010 01:43:39 +0000 i’m stephen ross and 46 yrs old, florida–usa. I met an incredible woman from bacolod, negros occ 4 yrs ago with 3 beautiful kids. she sepperated 7+ yrs and never receive any peso from her husband in that time. I give u short version– long would disgust any person alive about the philippines. Catholicism is way of life there and most are very devout catholics? Most men in phils have many girlfriend on the side–not all but many. look in any barangay (village) so many single moms. divorce is illegal? so we must get what is called anullment? with the corrupt lawyers,judges and catholic church approving all of this–its so un-god-like. they take my usa dollars and promise actions? then of all things? the drunken and womanizing husband wont comply to anullment. we all cant believe this legal? well–you make certain –its legal there. never trust anyone in philippines–they catholic church is most corrupt institution i ever been involved with. a smart girl out of highschool will go to SM city to work and work all day–10 hrs. for 350 peso– 7 usa dollars? sometimes 4 dollars. BTW– if its so forbidden for divorce? why allow anullments? when they see american or foreigner –wow. price goes way up. they are parasites in the community and have the audacity to sit in front row at mass. pathetic. beware catholicism in philippines. Its a big money grab. i have no religious affiliation– thank–god

By: and.think.again Thu, 07 Oct 2010 01:11:24 +0000 The most ignorant Catholics are in the Philippines. Majority of the Catholics in this country are Catholics by tradition and very few (counting the multi-millions Catholics) are Catholics by faith. The Catholic Church is aware of this, thus, they would like to control the environment as much as they could because they know that if these Catholics are given the choice, they will readily take the option to us the artifical contraceptives and all the negative way of life connected to this. Why? Because their faith and knowledge of Catholic doctrines are almost non-existent because of the failure of the church.
Majority of the corrupt officials are Catholics and they go to Catholic church religiously every week, the hostage taker who killed the foreign hostages was a Catholic, the cops who take money are Catholic, the house of the Congress and the Senate where majority are Catholics are alleged to be corrupt, majority of the people connected with illegal gambling were baptized in the Catholic Church. It is a country where majority of citizens are Catholic, yet a country that has always ranked high in corruption, human trafficking, etc..
Catholic Church in the Philippines is a huge failure.
If the Catholic church will rally a mass action vs the President or RH bill, I will be standing at the other side of the fence, yet I am a Catholic.
