January 25 2009 on Rock Ed Radio >> THE FINAL SET! (last hurrah for your RH Bill stand research)

Paranaque Representative Eduardo Zialciata is vocal about his stance opposing the RH Bill. He has given arguments in Congress (almost) on behalf of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. Taking a public stand for ones private beliefs is, usually, an admirable thing to do so we thought we'd grab this opportunity to let you hear his stand.

Antonio de Castro, SJ of the Loyola School of Theology will join us as well.

As someone who adheres to the Opus Dei teachings, Lucille Montes MD will join us, too.

We've heard most sides by now. Let's hear this one.

Open minded-ness is in order.

Then you decide from there.

Mayayaman siguro kayo kaya akala ninyo hindi kailangan ng RH Bill.

pUsa said...

pwede bang hindi na lang maki-sali yung simbahan sa mga ganyang usapan??

Anong parusa ba pag hindi nakasunod sa RH bill?

angel of antipolo said...

I came from a very conservative Catholic univ. in QC. Though the school is strongly against the RH bill, it hasn't really pointed out the bill's outline. What are its weaknesses and benefits, if any?

Bakit di nalang bigyan ng pabuya ng gobyerno ang mga couples na 2 lang ang magiging anak..na di gumagamit ng contraceptives?

Sabihin na po natin na walang ugnayan ang poverty at population, pero the more people in a certain place, health threat po yun at environmentally degrading.

mark said...

Education and Jobs po ang problema, hindi po population. Please, yung budget po sa RH bill sana sa education and job provision nalang po.

Tingin ko tama si Cong. Hindi yung dami ng tao ang basihan sa pagiging mahirap ng Pilipinas, kundi yung tao mismo.

Hindi po ba lalong mag-aarouse ng curiosity sa kids pag maaga ang sex education?

mark said...

Meron po bang factory ng condom at pills na nagpasa ng bill na yan?

Bunso said...

Mam, gudpm po sa mga bisita niyo. ok sana ang mga panukala nila, kaso minsan may ugali ang tao o mambabatas na sila mismo ang gumagawa ng problema. nasusunod ba nila ang batas na tinakda na tingin ko ay para lang sa may pera. Si Bunso po ito, kasama si Oca, Allan at Burak. Nakikinig po kami ngayon.

I think that instead of pursuing the RH bill, the gov't nust first invest on proper sex education/ They should help the parents form the children's moral stand about the topic. At the end of the day, it's all about responsible parenthood, not contraception. That's the most effective solution even the mass can afford.

gizado said...

Ano ba ang kasiguruhan ng bansa, sa dami o unti ng populasyon nito?

aileen, cavite said...

Katoliko rin ako. Ayaw ng simbahan sa RH bill, natural method lang daw. Pero pag lumobo ang populasyon, kaya ba nilang pakainin, ibahay at pag-aralin lahat yun? Di naman sapat ang charity no?

adriel said...

May I correct you? The make drive is not going down, it's just shifting towards the same sex! *gasp* hihi

mark, bulacan said...

Father, ayaw nyo po ba mag-congressman? Senator? Iboboto ko kayo!

jo said...

Sino po ba ang nasa likod ng reproductive health bill? Naniniwala ba kayo sa depopulation campaign ng CIA?
Dapat si Cong. Zialcita isulong ang foreign debt moratorium, maraming boboto sayo sa senado.

Hi Gang, The people you are speaking to are obviously rich at walang idea what it's like to be poor.

angel of cavite said...

Wala po ba kayong nakikitang good points about the RH bill?

Angel said...

What an episode! A very significant topic yet too little time. I hope to hear more great episodes in the future. More power to Rock Ed!

Tama! Wag nang ipatupad ang ganyang batas kasi parang ginagawang legal ang pagpatay!

sex education should start at home. human nature kasi ng tao ang maging malibog.tamang edukasyon na lang para ligtas.

I know this is late but I feel compelled to still say it:

DAHIL SA RH BILL LUMABAS ANG KAGAGUHAN NG SIMBAHANG KATOLIKO!

Bakit?

Wala sinasabi sa RH bill na pumpayag sa abortion. Ngunit palaging pinipilit ng simbahan na meron. There is a clear case of deception to mislead the public (for what reasons? All I can say is it isn't for anything spiritual). Coincidently, the poorer a catholic country is the more religious and numerous the Catholics are. La lang, just a coincidence.

Ang RH bill ay naka-focus lamang sa contraception. There is nothing in the bill that says you can abort a child that has already been conceived. It only seeks to prevent conception when desired.

There is also the argument that tax money of Catholics will be used to fund this "sinful" activity. To this I say two things:

1.) The majority of Pinoys (even Catholics) approve of the contraception (e.g. condoms and pills). But I guess this means squat to the statists in the Catholic Church.

2.) The Catholic Church is currently the largest landholder in the Philippines. Land which they refuse to have CARPED. Even though we don't directly pay money to subsidize the Church's landholdings, we indirectly pay for it by lost opportunities to develop the land and the potential tax revenue. What about the non-Catholics that have to pay for your landholdings you hypocritical Philistines!?

In short, gago ang simbahang Katoliko. Maybe there are people willing to be castrated by the church and that's fine, but you cross the line when you force others to do the same.

If there is a lesson in this we should all realize that it is a myth/superstition to believe the Catholic church is somehow superior as a moral institution. A casual look at history would show that the Church is just as likely as any other human institution to be corrupted by material considerations.
