Catholic Bishops Colluded with Pidals (CBCP)

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines has just come out with its new pastoral letter after a 10-hour emergency meeting, just weeks after calling for "communal action" - whatever that means. As usual, the bishops' decision was hailed by Malacañang as it did not succumb to mounting pressure to ask for Gloria's resignation.

It did come out however, with a six point apostolic manifesto:

Beloved People of God:

Greetings in the peace of the Lord!

Today in the midst of restlessness and confusion, we come to you as pastors, for that is our precise role. We do not come as politicians whose vocation it is to order society towards the common good. Our message contributes to the flourishing of a democracy which must not be built only on political formulae.

We face today a crisis of truth and the pervading cancer of corruption. We must seek the truth and we must restore integrity. These are moral values needing spiritual and moral insights.

Therefore, we address this pastoral statement to everyone particularly you our beloved people and in a special way to our political rulers and officials.

We are convinced that the search for truth in the midst of charges and allegations must be determined and relentless, and that the way to truth and integrity must be untrammeled, especially at the present time when questions about the moral ascendancy of the present government are being raised.

For this reason, we strongly:

1. Condemn the continuing culture of corruption from the top to the bottom of our social and political ladder;

2. Urge the President and all the branches of government to take the lead in combating corruption wherever it is found;

3. Recommend the abolition of EO 464 so that those who might have knowledge of any corruption in branches of government, may be free to testify before the appropriate investigating bodies;

4. Ask the President to allow her subordinates to reveal any corrupt acts, particularly about the ZTE-NBN deal, without being obstructed in their testimony no matter who is involved;

5. Appeal to our senators and the ombudsman to use their distinct and different powers of inquiry into alleged corruption cases not for their own interests but for the common good;

6. Call on media to be a positive resource of seeking the truth and combating corruption by objective reporting without bias and partiality, selective and tendentious reporting of facts;

For the long term we reiterate our call for “circles of discernment” at the grassroots level, in our parishes, Basic Ecclesial Communities, recognized lay organizations and movements, religious institutions, schools, seminaries and universities. It is through internal conversion into the maturity of Christ through communal and prayerful discernment and action that the roots of corruption are discovered and destroyed. We believe that such communal action will perpetuate at the grassroots level the spirit of People Power so brilliantly demonstrated to the world at EDSA I. It is People Power with a difference. From the grassroots will come out a culture of truth and integrity we so deeply seek and build. We instruct our CBCP Commissions to take active role including networking for this purpose.

May the Lord bless us in this sacred undertaking to build a new kind of Philippines and may our Blessed Mother be our companion and guide in this journey to truth and integrity.

For and on behalf of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines:

+Angel Lagdameo, D.D.
Archbishop of Jaro
President, CBCP
February 26, 2008


During the several times in the past seven years when the CBCP virtually rescued Gloria from one scandal to another, I have kept true to my faith and continued to respect those who represented my religion.

But this act of the CBCP, whose members are supposed to be the highest of our spiritual shepherds, was the proverbial last straw. I cannot accept the CBCP statement that goads the flock into following a leader that is constantly pushing them to the end of the hill.

I strongly condemn this statement which asks the Resident Evil to even lead the moral crusade in fighting corruption when this Bitch is the one that is most corrupt.

I vomit at the sheer hypocrisy of the Bishops' condemnation of corruption when they have not even lifted a finger against their own who have placed my religion in a despicable and scandalous position by accepting bribes themselves thus abetting further corruption.

I deplore the Bishops' indifference toward the deafening vox populi who for seven years have blindly obeyed their pastorals and restrained their indignation despite the continuing impunity of the agents of Satan, people now want a change to moral leaders but look who's stopping them.

I reject the devise by which the Bishops want us to arrive at the truth - more open investigations, less media, less fanfare, more evidence, more witnesses - when the truth has been staring them in the eye all along. The Bishops seemed to have been convinced that the "legal" truth is the "real" truth.

The real problem of Philippine society has now turned from political to moral. The religious, for many of the rural folks, are the only educated people they happen to interact with that every word they say is gospel truth, no pun there, and when they look up to them not only for spiritual guidance but for other aspects of their existence, I can't imagine what values such religious workers could possibly inculcate when guided by the CBCP's stupidity.

In view of these, and after searching deep inside my soul, I will now commit to break loose from the chain of command of the Roman Catholic Church, and take all matters regarding my faith on a personal level and directly with my Creator.

I will not receive the sacraments administered by priests whose leaders have effectively conspired and colluded with, abetted and propagated, the works of evil.

I will not attend mass nor will I receive penance and communion until such time that the bishops acknowledge this mistake and make amends to correct it.

Finally, I call on all Catholics to join me in this undertaking. We want change don't we, and whether with or without the bishops, we owe it to our country and our children who deserve a just and free society, that we destroy the manacles of despotism and tyranny, terminate the deadly diseases of cheating and lying, and eradicate the unmoderated greed of the ruling kleptocrats armed only with genuine patriotism and shielded by unblemished truth.

It is time for the pResident Evil, Gloria Dorovobitch, to cut and cut clean.

Tongue, you are falling for the trap. You need the sacraments as they provide graces for you from God. What you do not need is these corrupt clergy (in the first place, they may not even be offering the sacraments validly). You need these graces to be able to discern what is good and evil. You know that behind this evil is the devil. You need all the graces.

So I suggest attend masses and receive the other sacraments in a place/church where there is truly a good priest.

Number 2, if your good priest's superior is not good, then withhold giving into the collection. Give instead to the AMRSP fund. If their superior is good like Bishop Inigues or Oscar Cruz, then give.

Anonymous,
I've considered that, too. But since my parish falls under that of Bishop-briber Medy Poblador's uncle, I believe my choice is justified.

Hi Tongue,

Maganda yung gif Gloria blogswarm banner mo kaya lang nawawala ang movement basta i-post ko yung gif. May series of images ka ba niyon para mapagalaw mo?

If you can send us the series of gif images maybe some who have flicker or similar programs can put it through a slideshow for actual movement. The Google Blogspot offers Slide Show options I think.

BTW pwede ba yung nunal ni Gloria gawing bright red parang blinkers ng kotse? Maganda yan para sa "Busina para sa Katotohanan" theme ... Beep! Beep! :LoL:

On the contrary, this is a good opportunity for those who have been trapped by this religion and crafty priests to try now to seek for the truth as God has counseled all people should, even providing them with the Holy Ghost to touch and lead them to the truth.

I was a Bible non-reading Catholic myself when I got touched by the Spirit. My father gave me a Bible when I was 12 when he noticed that I was curious to know more. It was not a Catholic Bible but the King James version used by protestants. I guess it was then when I started asking a lot of questions about the fallacious teachings of the Catholic Church, lots of contradictions in fact witht the 10 Commandments that started tto confuse me.

That was why, I guess, I was ready for change when I met the missionaries of the church that I am affiliated with now although it took months before I did decide to get baptized. I was 17 going on 18 then, but I never regretted that decision.

I have never been to a seminary but the knowledge and testimony I have gained as to true nature of God and His Only Begotten Son have enabled me to be at par with these Catholic priests and nuns I found to have in fact superficial faith in God.

I have met good ones among them, too, but I found them pathetic at times for their little knowldege of things that really matter, especially their superficial attachment to Jesus Christ and God the Father, whom they have not given as much importance as the Virgin, who was in fact more like a surrogate mother to God's Only Begotten Son.

So, Tongue, don't despair as far as your spiritual welfare is concerned. You'll be saved more not following these peole engaging in priestcraft that God condemns as a matter of fact.

Truth is these priests and nuns are losing a lot of their members for their political activities.

I believe that if they have done right, there probably would not be anybody as evil as Pidal Dorobos, who can be as bold and evil to utter those blasphemies about God, not the devil, being in cahoot with them.

Guys,
To put it in the sidebar, you will have to modify the html code manually.

What you can do is copy the code in the main text (the one that successfully loaded the animation) and paste it over the one in the sidebar using the Template Editor this time. Save then view.

I will try to upload another but this file is big and will require morphing from Neri's "nguso" picture to Gloria's own "nguso" photo. Hope it works.

 
At 6:29 AM, March 04, 2008, Blogger Tongue's Wrath said...

One more thing, right click on the image and click "Properties" or click "Save As". If the file you uploaded is in ".png" format, it won't animate. Blogger templates sometimes convert gif to png for the sidebar.

It has to be ".gif "

My monsignor cousin was asking me to meet with Bishop Soc Villegas because he's into Ellen T's blog and reading my posts. I told him about the blogsite.

Sabi ko, "ano ako luko-loko?!"

chi,
I'd rather you reject him. What they did to Estrada - an angel compared to the resident evil bitch - calls for consistency. People like me have put their Catholic faith on the line because of of that. They had been exhaustive with Erap for his PERSONAL faults. But are bland at the stump for Gloria's PRESIDENTIAL debacles.

The latter is definitely more grievous than the first. What's stopping them now, the fear of losing gambling money donations?

Kailan Kaya Bibitawan ni Arroyo ang Bola?
March 3, 2008 · 10 Comments

Pumapapel na si Noli at lagi niyang sinasabi sa English na siya raw ang Constituitional successor kapag mabokya ang banka na si Gloria.Ngunit bago natin sakyan at i-angkla ang reserbang goma sa senaryong ito ay maigi na atin munang suriin at bigyan ng ganap na makauring disposisyon ang mga pangyayari upang hindi tayo malito kasama ng ating mga kababayan na nagtapos lamang sa mababang paaralan para hindi uli sila mahatak at malansi ni Kabayan.

Ang Panawagang “Gloria Resign”sa teritoryo ni Binay ay tumatagos hanggang sa pinakamababang lebel ng masa at mga opisyales ng gobyerno na parang siniko sa dibdib ng pitong demonyo dahil kartada singko ang ang naihirit na baraha.Pero ang naging siste ng rally ay watak-watak ang opposisyon at hindi konsolado, sila ang mga burges na oposisyon o ang paksyon ng naghaharing uri at iba na may binabalak na humalili.Ng umakyat na ang CO-RAP sa entablado pinalakpakan ang dilaw na bistida ni Cory at nang ng nag-inglish na si Asiong Salonga ay nasapawan ang bidang si Jun Lozada.Kaya tuloy naisip ko,ano kaya ang dapat tayaan sa beto-beto? Ngunit ang naiwang maraming pangkat ay nagkakaisa sa kanilang kagyat na panawagan na dapat umalis si GMA sa poder ng kapangyarihan.Nandito ngayon ang nabuldigat na problema kung ang pagpapatalsik kay GMA kapalit si Noli De Castro gamit ang “succesion excuse” ng proseso ng kasalukuyang umiiral na konstitusyon ay tutol si Loren Sinta dahil kasabwat daw ni Gloria ang tiga hila ng lubid ng Nazareno sa pandaraya kaya siya nanalo.Ibig sabihin ang kandila ng dalawa ay kukurap-kurap na o kaya’y ang pagiging kumare at kumpare ay naglakbay na sa ere.

Kaya ang kumapre ko na nag-attend ng rally ay ganito ang sinabi- —-

Nakakainis ang nangyayari ngayon. Kung minsan naiisip ko, impossible ng umunlad pa ang Pilipinas at naisip ko rin na kumuha ng tourist bisa at mag TNT sa America dahil hindi pa natutpad ang wish ko na ang Philippines to becomes US state. Pero imposible iyun pare!Una tinutulan ni Quezon,sa totoo lang okey na ang Pinas.when it came to its people sa dami ng magagaling sa atin.Lalo nasa politika sa kongreso nand’yan si Tony Diaz na maraming naipasang batas,kung sipag lang naman sa pagiging kargador nand’yan si Way Kurat, at kung sa pirmahan lang experto si Iggy Arroyo, d’yan ang dalawa niyang tungaw na pamangkin na mahilig mag-import ng kabayo. Pag matuloy pa ang election sa 2010 ay may showdown sina Willie at Joey sa pagka-senador. Kung batas lang naman ang pag-uusapan ay tulo laway lang kay Gordon at Ping lalo na kapag bagong gupit si Bianzon at magkatabi sila ni Pimentel nasisingkol ang utak ni Mirrian at nasusunog ang upuan nina Lito at Bong.. ……

Kaya nga pare! Lintik at pesting gobyerno ito,iyung sahod ko sa isang buwan ay kukulangin kung pakakainin ko ang junior at neneng ko sa Jolibee, tapos may evat pang babayaran.Nakuba na ang likod ng kumander ko sa paglalabandera at mataas na ang kanyang balikat dahil kapos sa pambili ng bitamina at hindi pa naaalisan ng problema,mas problema pa kung mamatay mas malaki ang gastos dahil iyung mga nag to-tongits sa lamayan ay malakas sa paborita at kape,Mas makakatipid pa pag nabubuhay dahil tatlong supot ng noodles para sa pananghalian ay mura kesa sa bayad ng punerarya.Ang sapatos ko ay nabutas na ang swelas,sayang Nike pa naman na pasalubong sa akin ng pinsang kong balikbayan kaya lagi kong iniingatan,itong gobyerno ni 4×4 milyones ang kinukurakot.Kailan kaya bibitawan ni Arroyo ang Bola?

hawaiianguy,
No prob.

Orly,
The image suits your blog very well, winking and blinking!. You can add an image by referring to the image in any of the sites that have it working. Put it in the sidebar.

Thanks for dropping...er...by.
