Bad news: CBCP Granted TRO vs. Diablo III retailers. Good news: enjoy satire

17 May

A satirical article making the rounds on twitter and the internet has fueled the already not-so-popular standing of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in society. While some understand the nature of satire, most of the commenters and reactors are completely ignorant of it, spewing hate against CBCP and their “meddling” with something that they shouldn’t meddle with.

I was amused initially, and felt a bit proud, for not having fallen into the ‘trap’. But then I realized how this affects those who are “Catholics” by name only, showing mistrust and disgust for their pastors. It’s saddening, really. I’ve compiled a couple of comments from the article:

The Amateur Snarker – http://amateursnarker.wordpress.com/

Mark Hugh Neri – http://ehpinoy.ph/

Clearly, the Church and CBCP has a great need to catechize and educate people.

Oh, and if you’re friends with any of these commenters, be a blessing to them and teach them what satire is. 🙂

    Can’t say I blame them. The church has been meddling with the governance of the country quite a bit. Whatever happened to the separation of church and state, I mean Jesus Christ himself wanted the separation of responsibilities.
