From Roxy on a Beast Mode:
Thank you Rappler for advocating the legalization of divorce. So far, so good. Inspite of the controversies it has, Rappler never fails to amaze me. It is brave enough to push people towards the 21st century. Yes, guys–we should drag our culture and ourselves to the 21st century.
I think there’s nothing wrong with being conservative–but to be honest, conservatism is fucking outdated in the 21st century. As per the Mighty Warrior, “Kung nakaka-inis makarinig ng mga ‘bad words,’ mas nakakainis paring makarinig ng mga sermon galing sa mga conservatives kagaya niyo!”
[If it’s irritating to hear bad words, sermons from conservatives like you are more annoying.]
Side Note: Whoever repealed divorce in the New Civil Code of the Philippines must be a bigoted elitist twat who is a member of the Vatican.
Realistically speaking, hindi pa handa ang mga Pilipino sa diborsyo (well, to think that divorce existed in the Philippines before some elitistic twat repealed it in the NCC). I think we are controlled by the Vatican (through the CIA and Illuminati, opkors!).
Marriage should be a sacred thing. Granted na iyan. However, staying the inside while you know that it’s a bad marriage has NO FORM of sanctity at all. Kailan ba naging sagrado ang kasal kung ang asawa mo naman eh ang manyakis na rapist na si Sheldon Arcenas pati ang traydor na impostora na si Dalia Guerrero-Pastor?
As a matter of fact, divorce should be re-legalized in the Philippines. I am not ashamed to tell the world that I support the Divorce Bill for the Philippines.
Divorce should be legal, but with reservations (to kowt Alma Moreno)
Why with reservations? I don’t see the point of making divorce as some “good solution” only to be free from the chains of a legal paper. I see it as a solution to invalidate the marriage that has lost its sanctity. Some conservatives from the legal core may get angry at me, however, thinking inside the box is like living under a rock for many centuries.
Oh, and before I forget, annulment should be free of charge and must be effective in a snap. It should be merged with the declaration of nullity–why? Forget about that declaration-crap-whatdafuq crap! It only shows yhe hypocritical nature of the conservatives in the Philippines.
Have the ever heard of moral values that are not taught by the Church doctrines? We cannot heavily rely on Church doctrines is because, an anonymous-authored proverb said, “Humanity does not need religion. Religion needs humanity.”
Here, this is NOT an issue of morality. It’s an issue of being human–the individual self. Some self-righteous “moralists” kuno are making divorce a “mortal sin” and a “gateway to hell,” however, they never realize that HELL is simply here on Earth. Heaven is actually also on Earth, depending on what your notion of heaven and hell is.
The issue here is–the concept of “forever”
These so-called conservative-moralistic-elitistic-ignorant scums claim that marriage is a curse–but divorce should never be legal in the Philippines to continue social pressures simply because “image preservation” is far more sacred.
Putang Ina! Twisted values nga!
Also, the defeatist mentality and strong clannish culture of Filipinos make me cringe up to no end. Proof? Minsan, marami pang mga chismosa sa sariling kamag-anak. Hindi ako nagbibiro dito. Madalas, sila pa ‘yung hihila sa’yo pababa. Proof ulit? Nag-divorce ka lang sa ibang bansa, tapos tatawagin kang palikero ng mga kapatid mo. Masaklap, hindi ba?
No wonder, hindi parin mai-usad ang diborsyo dahil sa 16th century (dehins aketch eksaherada!) mentality ng karamihan sa mga Pilipino (oist! ‘Yung mga conservatives na mahilig magsimba pero mahilig manakit ng ibang tao diyan! Kayo ang tinutukoy ko!).
You can’t simply rely on the doctrines of the Church. You won’t realize that priests commit wrongs as well (example: Pædophilia)–and some religious conservatives turn a blind eye to it. Like what Mother Dragoness said, “Catholic schools prepare students for the 16th century.” So, if you’re not a religious person, better avoid Catholic schools. After all, Catholic schools do not shape you to be a “holy saint.” Malaking kalokohan iyon. In fact, in reality, Catholic schools are only good in instilling elitism (quoting QueenRoxy).
And yet, the elitistas have the nerve to blame the late former strongman Ferdinand Marcos for the cultural conservatism of the 60s up to the biggest mistake in human history: The People Power Revolution.
Side Note: Tigilan niyo ako diyan sa mga “Martial Law victims” at saka #neverforget pati #neveragain niyo. And please, those desaparecidos worsened during the time of Kurikong. I know some people who have forgiven the Marcoses (aside from Miriam Santiago), have you heard of Teddy Boy Locsin and Atty. Edwin Rey Sandoval? The former’s father was jailed, and was once a supporter of the Yellow Oligarchs, but he has forgiven the Marcoses and continued to support them. Meanwhile, the latter was a former activist and political prisoner during the Martial Law era, but he decided to become a lawyer nung family man na siya. In fact, Atty. Sandoval was the oldest person in his batch at FEU). If you never heard of them, then you must be living under the rock.
Haven’t you heard of the late Jaime Cardinal Sin? Guess what? He was a Cory ally who commanded everyone to occupy the EDSA Shrine. Or else, they’re stripped from their academic standing or their academic titles.
Good thing he never become pope–if he becomes pope, the New World Order will be established in no time.
The problem here is the constant violation of the Art. II, Section 6 of the Constitution. This provision promotes secularism, but it’s only taken for granted. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with placing Holy Images of Susmaryosep (Jesus Mary Joseh duh!) in government offices, but to use RCC for politics is crap! Gamitan ng Simbahang Katoliko atsaka pulitika!?!?!? Are you telling me that the Filipinos should be stupid and deserve to be stupid to not think outside the box of tradition!?
Kaya na-turn off ako kay Lucy Torres, eh! Lucy Torres is not meant to be a Solon–in fact, her educational background was of no use when she opposed the RH Bill for some ridiculous reason: “We were embryos before.” Isantabi na kasi ang pagiging relihiyosa. Hindi lahat ng mga Pilipino eh, Kristiyano.
#RealTalk: Wala pong silbi ang talino kapag matalino ka sa Christian Living, pero bobo naman sa Agham.
No wonder, we were told, “Never base your moral values on what is allowed by state laws. State laws do not define ethics.”
The elitista Solons failed to look at the progress of the most progressive countries in South America (Argentina, Brazil and Chile). Catholic na nga mga iyan, eh why did they allow divorce? I bet, you elitistas cannot answer because your moral values are dubious. Buti pa nga ang mga Latino, progresibo ang pag-iisip. Now stop telling me that their culture is “liberated” simply because they speak Spanish or because they are located at the Western side of the globe. Have you not heard of Señor José Mujica? He was the former president of Uruguay and was dubbed the “poorest president,” however, he spoke for the common good. He defied corporate etiquette and represented the common people. Those Solons at the House of Representatives failed to see that. Papano, inu-una ang pagiging pa-sosyal! Kaya when asked about divorce, these elitista Solons become defensive, saying, “No way! My wife will do it against me! I love my wife.” But turns out, nangangaliwa pala. And please, Enrique Peña Nieto married twice–but did it affect his image as the head of state of Mexico? He might have better morals than the elitistang Solons with closet venereal disease.
Itigil niyo na kasi ang pagiging duwag niyo! LOL, mas lalaki pa nga si Chito Miranda kesa sa inyo, eh.
Buti pa si Chito, nagka-forever. It has proven that Neri Naig is low-profile, to think she was once a contender of Star Circle Quest. Nagkataon lang na their sex video became public.
And of course, these people who looked down on the couple should think twice–Chito and Neri are meant to be.
Also, divorce laws have been proven to help strengthen the marriage of couples (don’t tell me, “hindi rin.” Defeatist na naman iyan!). Haven’t you watched the movie, “My SO has got depression”? Haruko (played by Aoi Miyazaki) told Mikio (played by Masato Sakai), “If you don’t quit your job, Imma divorce you.” See? In fact, there are many strong couples there like Posh and Becks, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and a lot more. As a matter of fact, strong marriages are the most sacred marriages.
Side Note: The hypocritical culture of the Philippines is actually imposed by the elitistas. Admit it! In fact, majority of the Solons in the Legislative Branch of the government are mostly elitistas from the social elite class. Iilan lang ang mga taga-middle class or poor class. After all, intelligence is never based on wealth. Again, kalokohan iyon. In fact, intelligence should be used to influence people and pioneer social change through actions.
No wonder, I strongly recommend The Manila Times as a good read to all people. I love how TMT promotes critical thinking instead of bigotry. Buti pa nga an TMT, hindi nakakasawang basahin, eh ang PDI? Meh. Oinkquirer has been promoting bigotry all the time (inferz naman sa Rappler, to think that it might have been acquired by the Yellow Oligarchs, they promote the freedom of information, freedom of speech and advocating social change). Naku… don’t get me started on how PDI discourages divorce, support for gay marriage and their never-ending tirades against the Marcoses.
As a matter of fact, The Manila Times has always been a good newspaper. There’s this one article that speaks about the good side of divorce. Inquirer? Holy fornication, puh-leeze! PDI has been always preaching bigotry to people!
Lastly, to all religious radicals (fundamentalists, ultraconservative Catholics) who base their faith on the “dictatorship” of the pakialamerong-bigoted CBCP, divorce does not wreck the family. Infidelity does. Sirang-sira ang pamilya kapag may nangangaliwa, and yet, the elitist Solons with closet venereal disease often turn a blind eye to that, only to preserve their “outer image” while in fact, they’re not only cheating and philandering; actually, they also steal money from the government (ilan pala ang SALN nila? Juice ko, si Corona naging scapegoat nila! Kawawa si Corona, pramis! Mga elitista lang ang galit sa kanya dahil blind followers sila ni PNoy!). Juice colored! Wala silang sinabi kina Erap at Rody–because these two old men do not have venereal disease at all. If ever they have, then they should resign instead! LOL!
So, if you will say NO to divorce dahil sabi ng CBCP, masisira ang pamilya, sagutin niyo! Tell them that they should resolve the issue if pædophilia among priests–who are often idolized by the elitistang Solons who have closet venereal disease. Mas corrupt pa nga ang mga elitistang Solong tutol hindi lamang sa diborsyo, pati na rin sa RH Bill (no wonder, may tuló sila! LOL).
