Back On The Soapbox

.:Errmm... Yeah:.

It makes so much sense now!

So everyone’s talking about the John Lloyd Cruz and Shaina Magdayao “debacle”, and since I wanted to jump on the bandwagon, I guess I couldn’t help but feel very indifferent to the whole thing, except for the obvious and easy punchlines that one can come up with because of the situation.

Nonetheless, it’s great to see that the issue is slowly dying a natural death. Still, considering how the media managed to keep a lid on this stupid non-issue for a whole two weeks, it does make one wonder why they couldn’t keep a lid on covering Rolando Mendoza for one frigging day.

Priorities, beeyotches. You don’t has it.

.:Great Going, Pope!:.

The Pope likens atheism to Nazism. Brilliant, your Holiness. Just bloody brilliant. You mean we’re just supposed to forget about this?

Godwin called it.

As a pluralist Catholic apologist, your Holiness, you are giving me a lot of things to apologize for. It’s bad enough that you have gone ahead and regressed on the progressive work that has been set forth by your predecessor, John Paul II, but did you have to just really emphasize exactly why everyone who doesn’t drink your Kool-Aid is nothing short of wary of the Catholic leadership?

While you shove your beliefs down people’s throats, you go and insist on accusing other people of doing precisely what you do. You promote intolerance of homosexuality, other religions, and choose to denigrate women to uphold your patriarchal system, and even condone the numerous abuses of the clergy upon children instead of actively denouncing such practices.

As a Catholic, I choose to believe in what this institution stands for, not what it has turned into: a cesspool of iniquitous, overbearing men who are exactly like the Pharisees and Scribes that they lecture against every Sunday. A congregation of believers who don’t know what they believe and nor have any idea why they’re fighting for the survival of their dying ways, when it’s their very nature that is driving their own movement down into the ground, as they refuse to accept that they are out of time and out of touch.

I could’ve sworn Christ did what he did to save people, not so we could go out of our way to condemn people all over again.

I don’t know who made this, but this sums up how I feel lately...
