Philippine Bishops Issue Historic Pastoral Letter Against Fake News And Presstitutes

IMG_2424MANILA, Philippines  (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When Filipino Catholics attend services this Sunday, they will listen to the reading of a “historic” pastoral letter issued by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

Rappler is reporting that the CBCP is urging Catholics to stop spreading fake news as it is a “sin against charity.”

What Rappler is not reporting is that the bishops are issuing a second pastoral letter to be read next Sunday condemning presstitutes, noting that they are committing a “sin against faith.”

(Faith, Hope and Charity are three theological virtues espoused by the Catholic Church.)

Many pro-Duterte bloggers have discredited both legitimate journalists and anti-Duterte bloggers as “presstitutes” for their bias, faux investigative reporting and spreading of fake headlines and photographs.  Among the so-called presstitutes are  Rappler, The Inquirer, GMA-7, ABS-CBN and bloggers like Raissa Robles, Cynthia Patag, Leah Navarro and Jim Paredes.

The second pastoral letter argues that presstitutes destroy the people’s faith in the truth and the basic tenets of fair, balanced and accurate reporting.

The letter urges all Catholics who have been following and reading news from the presstitutes to go to the Confessional Box at their first opportunity.

Coincidentally, The Adobo Chronicles has issued its own list of presstitutes as a public service to its readers and followers.

 

 

 

 

Catholic Bishops Protest Rosary Ban In Car Windows

IMG_1534.JPGMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Amid the confusion that greeted the implementation of the Anti-Distracted Driving Act (ADDA), transportation officials reminded Filipino motorists that their “line of sight” should be clear not just of electronic gadgets but also rosaries, small figurines, trinkets, and other accessories that can hinder their view of the road.

Reacting to the rosary ban, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has called on all Catholics to gather at the Luneta this coming Sunday to protest what it is calling “government intrusion in religious affairs.”

CBCP President Socrates Villegas reminded the government that there is a constitutional mandate for the separation of church and state.

“We’ve never ever meddled in the affairs of the government, so why should it meddle with ours,” Villegas said.

Perhaps this is just a case of amnesia on the part of the CBCP head?
