Indonesian Mayor Links Instant Noodles To Homosexuality; Noodle Sales Down

imageTANGERANG CITY, Indonesia (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s genetic. It’s acquired. It’s a punishment from God. It’s the environment. We’ve heard so many theories before about what causes homosexuality, but none as jaw-dropping as this: instant noodles.

The mayor of the city of Tangerang in Indonesia says that the rise in homosexuality in his country is due to a poor diet, including lack of breastfeeding and eating instant noodles. Arief R Wismansyah  made the comments at a pregnancy seminar in the city’s health office.

Just hours after Wismansyah made the statement, noodle companies and retail outlets in Indonesia reported a sharp decline in sales.

In neighboring Philippines, sales of the popular bulalo (bone marrow)-flavored instant noodles are also down, as are those of pad thai noodles in Bangkok and other cities in Thailand.

So, as a public service warning to our non-LGBT readers and followers, think twice before you tear open that cup-o-noodles in you cupboard!

SANTA CLARA, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 Halftime show closed with Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, and the entire stadium audience sending the message: “Believe in Love,” and a lot of heterosexual people took to social media to complain that the  show was an attempt to advance the gay agenda.

But members of the LGBT community diasagree and are, in fact, angry.

“Everyone knows what the gay colors are — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. These are the colors of the rainbow flag,” a spokesperson for the Human Rights Committee told The Adobo Chronicles. “Anyone  who watched the haftime show didn’t see the rainbow colors. What people saw were disgusting and mismatched  colors of yellow, pink, orange, white and blue-green.”

HRC, the largest LGBT advocacy organization in the country,  said that as a matter of fact, the show was an attempt to discredit and mock the gay agenda.

“What a shame they did it in the gayest place in America, the San Francisco Bay Area.”

PHILIPPINE BISHOPS TO SECEDE FROM THE VATICAN

MANILA, Philippines  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) announced today that it was seceding from The Vatican over recent pronouncements by Pope Francis.

The final straw for the Filipino bishops was the pope’s instruction allowing priests to absolve Catholics of the sin of abortion.

In a statement, CBCP president and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas said the Church still considers abortion a mortal sin and that aborting a baby merits excommunication. Villegas said, “Choosing to terminate innocent, unborn life is not among a woman’s options, because her right to privacy and to make decisions about herself do not extend to the life in her womb, over which she enjoys no dominion at all.”

Other papal pronouncements that led to the decision of CBCP to cut ties with The Vatican include welcoming homosexuals  and divorced (and remarried) Catholics into the fold of the church.

The Philippines, home to 100 Million people, about three quarters of whom are Catholics, is the only remaining country where divorce is still illegal. Homosexuality, while largely tolerated,  is still frowned upon by many.

CBCP will soon convene a local Synod of Bishops to elect a titular head that will be fully independent of The Vatican. It will be held at the Philippine Arena, owned by the second largest religious group in the country, Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC).

Filipino Catholics are looking forward to the white smoke that will billow out of the arena to signal the election of a Filipino pontiff.
