Time for divorce law

FRONTLINE

With Catholic Malta voting in favor of legalizing divorce, only one single country is left that bans divorce: The Philippines.

But it looks like the House of Representatives will soon tackle the divorce bill filed by two legislators: Gabriela party-list Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan and Rep. Rufus Rodriquez.

This comes amid the still heated debates in the House on the Reproductive Health (RH) bill. Both bills — the RH bill and the divorce bill — will definitely be fought against by the Catholic bishops.

The divorce bill presented by Ilagan, however, appears to be too strict and open only to some five grounds for couples or spouses in filing of a petition for divorce..... MORE

And now its also time for same sex marraige and in about 120 seconds later legalization of marijuana.

I was in favor of RHB thinking its a step towards the modern times, turns out I will be paying for condoms and other contraceptives so that some magkakareton can go to paradise, screw that. Let the motha pay for his rubbers. I do not subscribe to the argument that the more we are the poorer we are, RP has more mouth to feed than it can produce rice is not an excuse to exempt the unborn.. from experiencing it. We can not tell if the aborted fetus turnes out to be the future scientist that could have discovered a cure for cancer or AIDS/HIV. You want to cancel his/her/its arrival into this world? Then who the funk do you think you are GOD the DOG?

Now the divorce. there is legal sepation. Sufficient enough to get a TRO for the wife beater. A bill that imposes stiffer penalties for wife beaters and those who torment their love ones should be enacted instead, marraige must remain a sacred institution (SAGRADO) and it must, the proposed law dilutes it. Tagalogin ko... ang pagpapakasak ay hindi biro... pag isi-pan ng mabuti.. magpakatotoo kasi sa labanan ng buhay mag asawa... walang atrasan. Kung totootin ko kaya missis mo payag ka? i-share mo siya na parang tinapay?

Publicity is it? These left wing lunatics in congress, sure looks
like it, they love publicity. Kulang sa pansin? Tindi!!
