The Anti-Christ?

The Philippine Star reported that Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales “expressed optimism the Catholic Church would succeed in blocking the passage of the consolidated Reproductive Health (RH) bill in Congress.”

The Cardinal reportedly said,

    “Believe me, whatever they do, there is no chance that the Catholic Church would lose (on the RH bill issue) because Jesus Christ always wins.”

Now that statement got me thinking… what if the RH Bill is enacted into law despite the Catholic Church’s opposition, would that mean Jesus Christ is for the RH Bill? And if Jesus Christ is for it, does that mean the Church’s stand on the issue is anti-Christ? So what does that make the Pope and his bishops?

Just asking.

Meanwhile Muntinglupa struck down the anti-contraceptive resolution passed by Barangay Ayala Alabang. Contraceptives:1 Catholic Church:0

But it’s too early too tell who will come out on top. Suffice it to say that whoever will win is the side chosen by Jesus Christ, that is if we are going to take Cardinal Rosales’ words salt-free.

    I’m not an anti Christ but I’m not against RH, i’m on the side of responsible parenting and safe sex.

      Well, Jesus Christ is a loser. He was given a mission to earth by the “Father”…and He tried to fulfill that mission that costs Him His life. He failed. After thousands of years up to the the present the world is still the same.

      There are Catholic countries where abortion is legal, and Jesus losts there too.

      The good Cardinal Rosales is pulling a spin.

        Jesus takes sides. That’s Rosales’s basic moronic message.
