I was born in a Catholic family and studied all my life at catholic schools and college. But by catholic standards, I am one of the worst Christians. I believe in God but I don’t subscribe to the idiocy and universal uptightness, short-sightedness of the narrow minded Roman catholic church. Neither do I support the delusion of grandeur of other christian sects like the Iglesia ni Cristo, El Shaddai and Ang Dating Daan or the schizophrenic christianity of Apollo Quiboloy. They fool their followers into believing that God has entrusted them to save human race or in the case of Quiboloy, he claims that he is the APPOINTED son of God. Now that is revolting. I’m never a fan of commercialized churches. Even here in England, whenever I hear the holy mass, collection of donations in form of cash is done three times in a span of an hour. I know somebody who never missed the Sunday holy mass but shows so little holiness the rest of the week.
How christian are we? If we never miss a Sunday mass, or if we give monthly tithes to our church, or if we pray the rosary everyday and do not eat dinuguan or meat during holy week, does that make you or me a good Christian?
There is no true religion. Christianity can not be more true than Hinduism or Shintoism. It’s laughable to see how Ang Dating Daan and Iglesia ni Cristo fight each other and how they try to destroy each other is beyond description. It’s revolting to see El Shaddai and JIL evolve into political force when now, sons of the leaders of these flock are both members of the Philippine Congress.
When Willie Revillame said his piece on the March 12 Willing Willie episode controversy last night (April 8, 2011), he made mention of the celebrities who attacked the said episode on Twitter and threatened them of a legal suit.
These were the things Willie Revillame said (transcription courtesy of Mykiru): "Maraming mga artistang nakisawsaw. Mag-isip muna kayo bago kayo makisawsaw. Ang sakit nyo. Yan si Jim Paredes ng Apo, tinira ko sa Twitter, si Aiza Seguerra, tinira ko sa Twitter, si Agot Isidro, Lea Salonga, Mylene Dizon, sasabihin ko na lahat, sino pa, Bianca Gonzales ng SNN, susuportahan nyo ba ang mga taong yan? (Audience shouted NO!)
"Anong nagawa nyo? Anong nagawa nyo sa sambayanang Pilipino? (audience said "Wala")
"Sino pa? Si Tuesday (Vargas) na kasama ko dito tinira rin ako. Di ko maintindihan na tagarito ka, tinira mo ko. K Brosas. Sino pa? Leah Navarro okay. Sino pa?
"Kapwa tayo artista, nakagawa ba kayo ng tulong? Nagbigay ba kayo sa Bantay Bata ng isang milyon? Nagbigay ba kayo? Hindi.
"Wag kayo maghuhusga ng kapwa nyo artista. Dapat magkasama tayo dun. Tulungan nyo kami pag nagkakamali kami, wag kayong maghuhusga. Tandaan nyo, ung masang Pilipino ang sumusuporta sa inyo.
"Yan pong mga pangalan na yan, winasak ang pagkatao ko sa Twitter. Yan pong mga taong yan. Jim Paredes ng Apo, Lea Salonga…
"Aiza Seguerra, magpakalalake ka! Tandaan mo yan. Bata ka pa, di ba, nagtatrabaho ka na, di ba exploitation yan. Mag-isip ka. Tingnan nyo muna sarili nyo bago kayo magsalita.
"Agot Isidro, wala ka namang anak eh bat mo ko gaganyanin, alamin mo muna.
"Sino pa? Bianca Gonzales, akala mo kung mga sino kayo!"
"May natulungan ba kayong mga mahihirap?
"Kaya ko lang ho sinasabi to, nagtitimpi ako, ayaw ko tong sabihin, ayokong banggitin ang pangalan nila, pero sa Twitter ho un ang ginagawa nila, ang wasakin ako.
Through their Twitter accounts, the showbiz personalities mentioned immediately fired back Willie Revillame’s statement after the show. These were the posts they made:
“How can a laos, old, over the hill guy like me destroy a sikat, powerful, rich Superstar like Willie? He did it all by himself.”
“Good nyt people. Let the turmoil of the world be overcome by peaceful darkness.”
Aiza Seguerra :
“Sa mga sumusuporta, salamat po.”
K Brosas: “Anyareeeee??!! Daming tweets nabasa ko about willing willie?! Galit sa akin at sa iba pang mga artista?! Sensya di ko napanood.”
“Ako ay nagbigay ng OPINION ko…wala akong siniraan at binanggit na name….pwedeng basahin uli mga tweets ko, never ako nagbura! Peace! :) ”
“Ang daming problema sa mundo, mga trahedya, gera etc…dun ako affected…demanda dahil sa opinion?? Wait na lng natin kung mangyayari yon:)”
Tuesday Vargas: “pack up! now ko lang nabasa lahat ng tweets. In light of this uproar, I will remain tolerant and silent.”
Agot Isidro: “Thank you for the outpouring of support. I am A-ok! Don’t worry about me. Dun lang tayo sa tama.”
Bianca Gonzales: “i learned a lot on twitter tonight! difference between an informed and uninformed opinion. :) ”
“i really believe that what a person says or writes is a reflection of the kind of person he or she is. :) ”
Mylene Dizon: “I will not be bullied. I will not threatened. Sticks and stones may break my bones but your words will never hurt me.”
Lea Salonga: “Just got bombarded by a slew of tweets. To those who tweeted kind words of support, thanks. Much appreciated. And last I checked…”
“… it’s actually a right of every person in this country to express an opinion, good or bad. We live in a democracy, and I’m grateful.”
“And that is all I’m going to say. Nothing incendiary will be coming from me. No need for it.”
“There are insults being hurled in our direction, but eh. That’s life.”
“He’s entitled to express himself however he sees fit. As I said, democracy.”
Willie Revillame also announced that his show “Willing Willie” will be off for two weeks until he makes up his mind of getting back to the show.
Hey, your profile caught our eye and you seem like the type of person who would be interested in this. As you know Apple recently released the iPad2 and we're looking for consumers such as yourself to test the product out. What we would do is send the iPad2 to you free of charge, we'll even pick up the shipping costs and in return we ask you to provide a consumers opinion about the product, it's features & it's functionality. There is no catch, absolutely 0% liability, and as an added bonus you'll get to keep the iPad2 as an added incentive for participating in the study. Please note we've selected a dozen or so people and you're one of them, so we're looking forward to your participation and your opinion. To get started, it's simple, just go here http://tiny.cc/rna725 , enter your email address so we may contact you directly and provide an address where to deliver the iPad to. Once we receive your submission, please allow roughly 7-10 business days for delivery (free of charge). However we do urge you to act upon this offer as soon as possible seeing as the quantities are limited, along with model variations (such as size capacity and etc). Once again, we'll send you the new iPad2 free of charge for your participation. This doesn't require a credit card, nor anything else which may be personal. Just an email address for us to contact you directly and an address where to ship the iPad to.
Once again, the website is http://tiny.cc/rna725 & we're looking forward to this hopefully as much as you are!
Your offer is tempting but I doubt you’re from Apple. There’s nothing interesting on my Tumblr that would catch your attention. At first, I got excited but on a second thought, an ANON?
The link could be a virus or would direct me to a program that would hack my online accounts or whatever you want to do to destroy my cyber world and private accounts. Giving you my address is risky and why would I give it to someone I do not know, most especially to an ANON? And if I give you my e-mail address, you might hack all my social networking sites.
This is tempting and as much as I want to “try” this and have my own iPad2, I AM SORRY I WON’T :)
