ELECTION AFTERMATH

Eleksyon-2019

Election period had ended. Local officials were proclaimed while the national positions are under tallying. Some voters were discouraged of the outcome, crying out rigging of votes; throwing out low blows against their opponents even before the campaigning period started. To the extent of filing a lawsuit because of the personal damages these candidates incurred to one another. While for some, they are celebrating for the victory of their candidates. This is the typical scene you will see every election in the Philippines.

Typical drama, typical narratives, typical promises and agendas that might become a wishful thinking after they took the government office. Compared to the previous election albeit the shove-at-your-face irregularities, this year’s election gained enormous success and confidence from the people. This is the undeniable outcome of support from the pro-administration to the government. Of course, the opposition or the losing side would react to this statement. Take in mind that we have different opinions. Whether we like it or not, whatever the outcome the Comelec will declare, that is final. But just a little throwback, especially if you are aware of the dirty politics in some parts of the country, thanked God because it wasn’t bloody nor disaster this year.

Fast forward, the school grounds was left with a pile of garbages from the voters. I believe, this is not just a clean-up work that should be done by the local government units but a volunteer task from the winning candidates, if not all people.

Working as a government official comes with a great responsibility, accountability, and sincerity. It is indeed a hard work, if your interest is for the welfare of your constituents. But it is also a pocketful source of wealth, if your interest is lobbying and corruption. The politics in the Philippines is gross, multi-faceted, fanaticism, patronage, troupe of clowns, religiously influenced and venal system. Qualifications are overbearing but donwright ineffectual. Experience is a must but morally tainted. A century-old system that should be abolished. This new breed of officials should initiate the change in accordance with this current government’s mandate of a corruption-free, competitive economy and a progressive country. Regardless of color and political affinity, we should aim for unity, and not a division. Pray for the welfare of our country and its leaders. Be a productive citizen of this state!

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OWED AN APOLOGY TO PRES. DUTERTE

Much has been said on both sides of the issue. Duterte has always been straightforward to his tirades against the priests and the Catholic church, and he is right all along.

Recently, Vatican held a 4-day sexual abuse summit tackling the serious issue circulating around the inner walls of Catholic churches since time immemorial.

“It’s true,” Francis said. “There are priests and bishops who have done that.” (NYTimes)

The pope recently condoned bishops and church dignitaries in the meeting. Citing the sexual abuse has been a global issue on both religious and moral sects. It was the first time that the Vatican publicly admitted the issue.

Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said Feb. 20 the meeting will be an “interdicasterial meeting” of members of the Vatican offices connected to the issue of abuse, though he did not say exactly who would be present. It was noted that the meeting will also include experts on the protection of minors. (CNA)

Pope Francis urged the committee to come up with concrete actions not just accusations of the issue. He encouraged the committee to hear the cry of the victims and that justice should be given to them. He urged the bishops to discuss it in a synodal and sincere manner.

Meanwhile, Cardinal Tagle of the Philippines and the Catholic Church has been critical to Duterte since he took the presidential position. It became a somewhat “tirade episode” of both parties, especially when the issue about extra-judicial killings was a hot topic.

Attended the summit at the Vatican. Cardinal Tagle made a “pained admission”– (CNNPhilippines), of the president’s tirade against the Catholic Church and some of its clergies’ misconducts. It also brought enlightenment to the hypocrisy that has been going on inside the walls of the Catholic churches.

The Catholic Church had received numerous criticisms from the Filipinos, especially from Duterte’s supporters for showing biases, hypocrisies and inappropriate sermons against Duterte and his leadership. Now that this summit was established, it is therefore a heed to the religious organization to refrain from malicious accusations and semantic languages just to point out their disapproval of Duterte’s presidency. In the first place, the church should mind their own business, unless it concerns religious degradation.
