The various factions of the Catholic Church in the Philippines are battling each other…on our phones. How did they get our numbers, did the angels cough them up? All last week we woke up to messages from the “silent clergy” urging the House of Representatives to pass the Reproductive Health bill. Today we got a text from the un-silent side promising eternal damnation to the 114 congressmen who said yes to the RH bill. Thunderbolts and lighting, very very frightening!
But we are dealing with an institution whose chief weapon is fear. Fear and ignorance. Whose two chief weapons are fear, ignorance, and credulity. Whose three chief weapons are fear, ignorance, credulity…How do you reason with something built on unreason? With Monty Python’s Meaning of Life.
Given Twilight-level lack of irony, expect to hear this song at an anti-RH protest.
