King of Comedy Dolphy faces the Inquisition

Today I find myself on the side of Philippine Media as they lock and load for what looks like the gathering storm of a monumental battle against the Forces of Primitivism. On the side of modernity is Dolphy, the King of Comedy, who stands before the Inquisition accused of heresy. This “heresy” involves what sounds like otherwise hilarious scenes in his latest film Father Jejemon — a movie that most likely will see its producers laughing all the way to the bank considering the publicity it will get (or may already be getting) as a result of this latest of Pinoy-style circuses.

One scene in the movie that sent the Church and other groups fuming was that of a priest, portrayed by Dolphy, accidentally dropping a host into the cleavage of a woman taking communion during Mass. Another showed a host getting stuck on the dentures of an old woman.

Joining the fray is the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) whose chairman Mary Grace Poe-Llamanzares came to Dolphy’s defense asserting that “there was no malice on the part of Manong Dolphy in the movie. At times they get carried away, but that’s the reality in the industry”.

The Roman Catholic Church of the Philippines, yet again, finds itself on the side of moronism, specially considering its presumptuous threats against the State:

[Church officials] have called on the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to delete the offensive scenes or face a boycott of moviegoers.

That remains to be seen, padres.

What a pickle these men-in-robes have gotten themselves into. They are up against two mighty pillars of modern society: (1) freedom of speech and (2) secularism. The latter, in particular harks to the headline of the first Inquirer.net report on the matter that goes “King of comedy told to respect King of Kings” — inadvertently highlighting how perhaps our esteemed clerics forget that their “King” is not necessarily all Filipinos’ king.

The King of Comedy, unfortunately hasn’t been acting very kingly recently, instead bowing to pressure from the Choir of Angels:

“RVQ Productions, upon learning the public’s sentiments against some scenes on the teasers, immediately exercised self-regulation and deleted voluntarily the evoking scenes. This may be a good example where the MTRCB and a film production company have found a good accord, where the true benefactors are the viewing public,” Llamanzares said.

Zsa Zsa Padilla, the movie’s producer, is willing to delete some scenes even if it means added cost in the production.

What a shame. It would’ve been interesting to see who Filipinos are going to rally behind — the King of Kings, or the King of Comedy?

“This is an Antipinoy site, not an Anti-religion website.” —> Excactly.

I think my esteemed colleague Mr BongV made a pretty succinct but astute response to your queries here. That you’d emphasis reprisals against people who ridicule rituals pretty much highlights the point I make in the article and all references to The Inquisition. Indeed, ridicule of the Gloria Arroyo is pretty much what characterises Noynoy and his Yellow army. If they then get subject to reprisals, we get howls for “people power”. Same thing with the Church and most organised religions — all institutions with bloody histories of suppressing the truth and crushing their enemies.

In the end, it all boils down to this: It’s one thing to criticize the irregularities within the Roman Catholic Church and it’s another to mock Catholic rituals just to make people laugh. Oh, is the balat sibuyas on high alert right now? This is funny because it always comes down to personal taste if its a mocking or anything worst but above all, it is comedy! It doesn’t affect how people view or practice their religion. Not every catholic thinks like you who thinks the dogma is so important is above changing moralities and such. Grow up!

The problem is that Christian fundamentalism is far more commonplace here in the Failippines, considering we are the lone Catholic-majority nation in Asia (if in name only at least). If you want to discuss Islamic extremism, then go about to discuss in countries where Sharia law is upheld with an iron fist such as Somalia, Iran or Pakistan. And while we can discuss about the insurgent problem of the MILF trying to create Sharia law in our country, it’s an evil we already know about. Likewise, respect is not a God-given privilege but a status that should be earned and… Read more »

The King of Comedy, like many that make up the religious sector, is quite the “sinner.” 20-ish kids by just as many mistresses without marriage, and the institutions are keen to look the other way unless he does something really outwardly ‘blasphemous’ like this. Then he issues a token apology, a few ‘fixes’ here and there and it’s back to business as usual.

Now about the ‘unrated’ DVD edition, that’s a different story, hopefully.

I like how people are now taking the argument that it’s now about ‘spirituality’ instead of following what really makes faith, well, faith. I think it’s just a stepping stone out of religion. THEY’RE NOT CALLED FUNDAMENTAL-ISTS FOR NOTHING.

Wake the fuck up, people. You only have this life, after which you’re DEAD. After that, you’re gonna rot and all that’s gonna be left is a gravestone nobody visits.

There is no Holy in Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ has neglected his followers since the beginning of time.  Those who protest against Jesus Christ are the ones who are progressive.  Countries that uproot crucifixes in public places, saying prayers in school are the ones are progressive.  And the religious go to these places, countries whose citizens pukced like animals, then scream “I am blessed with a Visa”!  WHAT?  Visa to a country where animals uproot crucifixes where there is no state-sponsored religion?  YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE!!!!!

Bashing parents in a degrading manner? We dont do that. Although yes we go through teenage life, thats were we discover our identity and most likely rebel against our parents. Which leads to a behavior that you describe as parent-bashing. But once you mature, a different perspective takes over and thats when you ‘understand’ grown ups.

I’m a Christian myself, but I sided with benign0 on this one. I don’t treat Christianity as a religion, I treat it as a RELATIONSHIP. That is, relationship with God. In Protestantism, there are many denominations, but they’re serving the same God. The only Catholic sector that I can admire is the Charismatic one. TRUE Christianity is not practicing traditions or such but a serious relationship with the Lord. In other words, SPIRITUALITY. That is why Christianity in South Korea is much better than in Flipland.

The man known as Jesus was born in the area now in the israeli country, so he would look more like a middle eastern person. But Jesus was not also a person, rather a symbol of God extending his covenant not to the israelites from the Old testament, but everyone in the world. Hence why some believe a universal Jesus, one that represents all of humanity.

It’s the same as Muslims’ anger against Geert Wilders or Switzerland for banning minarets or France for banning burqas.
