Don’t believe everything you hear

What a way for nuns to talk

Nuns urge JDV: Shed light on Arroyo-ZTE meet

First of all nuns shouldn’t be involving themselves in politics. It’s a bad habit. Though it it written in the constitution of the separation of church and state, unfortunately is not practiced in the Philippines.

Not to mention that anything that JDV (that’s Jose de Venecia, former Speaker of the House and father to Joey de Venecia who was the whistle blower on the entire broadband deal) is already tainted. Why should we believe in anything that he says is for the good of the country.

After his privilege speech in congress where he was sour graping over the president. Who honestly believes in anything that any elected official says anyway?! He went preaching about bringing a change in governance and politics. He was speaker of the house for practically 12 years! Why didn’t he do anything then?

Why would the nuns be taking sides in the first place? Because they believe that JDV and Jun Lozada are morally right than the ones they accuse? Who are they to judge the moral character of people? Are they God? They should be trying to reconcile this country not split it apart by taking sides.

Why don’t they question the fact that Joey de Venecia, son of the speaker of the house, was able to place a bid for a multi-million dollar government contract? Why was a non-government family member of a high ranking official of congress even included in the bidding.

Why is there such public apathy to all of this? Is it because the ones pointing the finger are not as clean as the one they are pointing to?

Is it just about money? It’s the taxpayers money. Money that gets deducted from our pay checks even before we get it. Little does the public realize that there’s a lot more at stake other than money and power. I’ll discuss it in another blog post.

  2. Ah yes I misunderstood the role of the church in our country. I have been blinded by my own “upper-middle class elitism” on why should the church NOT take a stand on the current state of government. That my actions are based on influence from the “elitists” and lack any patriotic or nationalistic act such as those who dared to speak against he government.

    However I am not molded by the “elite”. It pains me that people only ride on these events because it is seen as the “in” thing. That my fellow countrymen forget the lessons of history, thus are doomed to repeat it again. As we are today.

    I firmly believe that religion is here to guide followers to the holy path to salvation to save us from our sins. It’s very annoying that all of these people are trying to save us from one another. And not just the nuns. Where are they everyday? It is my faith and beliefs that dictate my actions. Not faith and belief to dictate the actions of others and criticize to those who don’t.

    Why is it that it’s just the Catholic church and Jesus is Lord (well that only started after their leader decided to run for president) I respect the other religions who teach their flock on how to be good Christians and let them make the decisions themselves.
