A very observant student of Trapoistic Corruption Gloria Macapagal Arroyo knew too well the problem with dummies that are not as dumb as they used to be. When Marcos was driven out of Malacañang the companies supposedly owned by the conjugal dictatorship through those not so dumb dummies refused to return the stocks to the rightful or should we say wrongful, “owners” what they stole or forcibly took over from legitimate owners.
Instead of going the usual route of the dummies this administration shamelessly acts as pimps in partnership with their “comrades” that are busily poking the nations’ legs wide open in search of oil and natural gases at the expense of the exploited people of the Philippines.
While her partners are busy committing gross human rights violation against the Tibetan people her minions are busy lying to the public having the gall to challenge anyone who questions the arrangement to sue them. This is the kind of governance where 1in 3 of its people are marginalized or 27.6 million people barely earning a dollar a day trying in vain to survive while their leaders sink them and future generations to come saddled with debts most of it going into their pockets.
Poor nation ravaged to the left (Commie Chinese comrades) and right (Bishops on the take) in between the legs errr the so-called TraPo political divide dipping their dirty hands but quick enough to condemn others while insidiously hide their own plundering through their sick pork barrels and other scams to bleed us dry. Where oh where do we turn to?
Why even skirt wearing Bishops are shamelessly perverting peoples’ blinded by gambling money shows Machiavelli is alive and well thriving in a nation so corrupted to the core. A quote from Gloria and God in the Philippines, by Cher S. Jimenez shows our spiritual leaders moral bankruptcy:
That's in part because Arroyo has deftly played the religion card. The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country and senior bishops have in the past flexed their moral authority to affect political outcomes, including elections and crucial laws and legislation.
But a series of controversial incidents, many involving financial links to Arroyo's administration, has called the clergy's own legitimacy into question. Nueva Vizcaya Bishop Ramon Villena recently admitted in a newspaper report that the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), the lottery run by the Office of the President, had given him 1.6 million pesos (US$39,000) to build a hospital for the poor in his home province. However, the total assistance given to Villena's province, according to the report, was 3.2 million pesos.
The report also showed that the Catholic Church-run Radio Veritas received more than 2 million pesos in ad placements from the PCSO, which while not necessarily a new development, represented a huge increase in the amount of government funds doled out for similar initiatives in the past.
That gifts or money would blind the eyes of bishops and seal their lips to gross corruption when solidly proven would be a tragic contradiction to their experience as pastors at Edsa I and Edsa II," said Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Quevedo, a former CBCP president, referring to the clergy's participation in past people's power movements which overthrew corrupt governments.
As if this is not disgusting enough seeing the nations’ spiritual leaders hypocrisy not content with turning a blind eye has the audacity to sink so low as to defend and rationalize a corrupt regime, oh my what a shame. Then to make matters worse we see Alex Maligno errr Magno the once touted as the next party ideologue former “dialectical Materialist” turned “Materialist Dialect Guru” of pure greed and selfishness without shame rationalizing his untenable position has the gall to fool the people with his paid diatribes aimed at everyone that contradicts his “Materialist Dialect teachings” be they on the left, right or in between the political divide to please his masters. On the surface the paid hack seems to have a point but as always disclosure has never been an ATM Journalist virtue, to quote:
The democratic ethic requires a pious respect for diversity in viewpoints. We knew then what Black-and-White cannot seem to get today. We knew then that once we behaved with excessive self-righteousness that we could not respect diversity in opinion, all was lost.
Yes, people need to respect diversity in viewpoints provided that said viewpoints are valid and not tainted with so much PESONALITY (bought and paid for), so passing off a paid viewpoint does not qualify nor doest it merit respect in whatever form or manner, they should be exposed.
Now what’s up with “excessive self-righteousness” Mr. Dialect Materialist is harping about? Sounds familiar, hmmmmnnnn where did I hear that remark? Oh yeah it was from that incident with sharp shooting her hip Julie Defensor and Black & Whites’ Leah Navarro. I suppose that when one utters such remark it was an admission that every single individual in the Philippines are corrupt so only a Christian without sin can cast the first stone? If that is the case then the other “diverse viewpoint” that we need to “respect” (hopefully not cherish, lol) is another form of admitting they are corrupt but since each and everyone are also corrupt then not a single Filipino can throw the first stone. So did that change the fact that they are corrupt? Now how much more perversion are we going to allow before we say enough is enough? That corruption is so ingrained to the very core of their selfish greedy being that we should just dismiss the scandals since we are all corrupt? Wrong! While corruption is endemic the difference is the people are the victims of corruption and the perpetrators are reaping the benefits while the a huge sector are marginalized since budgets are cut and services affected and mismanaged. Speaking of sins Conrado de Quiroz has a timely article, to quote:
The notion that everyone is a sinner is not an insight, it is a tautology. Of course everyone has sinned at some time or another. But there are sins and sins. Some sins are of the order of Mary Magdalene's, others are of the order of Sodom and Gomorrah's. Mary Christ forgave, Sodom and Gomorrah God destroyed. Guess what order is the sin of someone who has stolen votes, lives and hopes. Even heaven weighs sins differently and punishes them accordingly. Only our bishops cannot, or will not.
So guess what will happen to La Gloria and her cohorts if indeed we look at this from a biblical viewpoint, don't tell me they will present a "diverse viewpoint" from the Satanist Cults? Howie Severino has a one liner that should be quoted here:
When bishops need to remind certain leaders about a certain commandment, and a pro-government newspaper saw fit to make it a banner headline, it's time for those leaders to look deep into their souls this Holy week.
Unfortunately, the big question is do they even have an inner soul since they have long ago lost their conscience or if they even know what it is. Let me end this entry with a quote from Conrado De Quiroz in the same article that says it all on how pathetic we have become:
Discernment is not an impediment to action, it is a guide to action. You see a woman being raped, you raise an alarm; you do not sit by and meditate on the relative value of chastity. The latter is not the path to discernment, it is a signpost to a mental institution. The bishops need not look far to see a sublime example of discernment guiding action. Jesus Christ himself, in whose name the bishops claim to speak: when he saw how his temple was being defiled, he flew into a rage and overturned tables shouting, "My temple is a house of prayer, but you have made it into a den of thieves."
You see God's temple being turned into a den of thieves and you say, "Let us all repent"? That may be many things but that is not Christian.
And guess where some of the hypocrite Bishops took the church together with their gullible flock? A "saint" is in the making with a different halo on her head and it stinks so bad............ because Pimps & Perversion in the Land of Cheats are thriving...... institutionalized in the sacredness of a toilet presidency complete with the bishops blessing on the take.
