this RH debate is getting to me

you probably all know by now that i am against the RH Law. i do not appreciate its disregard for one’s conscience and some of its guiding principles. now that it is being argued in the Supreme Court, almost everyone can see who sides with who. even if the judges say that they are merely asking questions, we all understand where each justice leans. and because of this, there lies the question of the objectivity of the judges — pro or anti.

my views and reasons are both secular and religious. but most of all because i am Catholic.

i can’t recall my reversion story ever posted here. but now that i have rediscovered Catholicism, what a TRUE Catholic believes and does, not just “being good” and “being nice to others” and “not being judgmental” with other people’s views, i am even humbled by how little i know about the richness of the faith.

hindi mahirap intindihin ang lohika ng Katoliko. mahirap lang itong isabuhay dahil napakataas ng hinihingi ng pagiging tunay na Katoliko. gaano kataas? “Be Perfect!” Mt. 5:48

if you think you are persecuted because you are Christian, try persecution holding on to true Catholicism. not your own version of Catholicism (nudge nudge C4RH, nominal Catholics). we are accused of being overly dogmatic, close-minded, irrational, and intolerant. the only thing in my mind, however, is that after learning all these truths from Catholic teaching, people don’t understand things completely. people sometimes don’t get to sense the bigger picture as i do in the light of real Catholic teaching.

and these things get misinterpreted into narrow-mindedness. and because of this, the RH Law oral arguments tend to hurt me… how people twist things so we look like fanatics who are disconnected with reality. and sometimes, some free-thinking individuals see this as a danger, a threat, and diminishes our credibility.

yeah. it’s another rambling-about entry today.
