Drug Wars are ALWAYS bloody. Deal with it!

Is there a war between the Roman Catholic Church and Duterte supporters? For that matter, is there a war between the Church and the Philippines’ trendy Church of Atheism? Perhaps. In fact the war between any Philippine Government and the Church has been raging for some time — specifically in efforts to curb the galloping […]

Here is why ‘fake news’ and religion are the same

A serious effort to understand the true causes behind the purported proliferation of “fake news” in the Philippines begins with an examination of what motivates the average social media user to click the “Like”, “Retweet”, or “Forward” buttons on their devices. Those who decry the “ignorance” of the average social media user who mindlessly contributes […]

Is the Roman Catholic Church ‘full of shit’?

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte thinks so.
