The power of the Church in the Philippines should be diminished. The so-called disciples of Jesus are being abusive to their power. Yes, we are a Catholic country but it does not mean that we all should succumb to ancient traditions that obviously are not relevant to the ever-changing society. I do not propose that we will live in an atheist society rather we should live in a society where equality, open-mindedness and the good of the many are the top priorities.
They say the locals of China and North Korea are blind followers. I say Filipinos are blind followers as well.
Where is the fine line that separates Politics from the Church? I think that line needs to be re-painted.
