Suicide is a MORTAL SIN according to the Roman Catholic Church

Lately, the Philippine Opposition had been exploiting for political gain yet another piece of poverty porn. The snippets of copy used as fodder to mount this blame campaign are so predictable that they lend a bit of comedy to an otherwise serious problem.

Victim mentality is evidently a favourite comfort zone of a people who harbour no concept of personal accountability. What is interesting is that when one considers that Filipinos are among the most religious people in the world, the doctrine they ought to be latching onto to guide them into coming to terms with suicide is right under their noses.

Catholic dogma on the matter suicide is very clear. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in their book Catechism of the Catholic Church spells out

Everyone is responsible for his life before God who has given it to him. It is God who remains the sovereign Master of life. 2258 We are obliged to accept life gratefully and preserve it for his honor and the salvation of our souls. We are stewards, not owners, of the life God has entrusted to us. It is not ours to dispose of.

When one observes how prayerful most “thought leaders” of the Philippine Opposition are, it makes one wonder what makes them predisposed to frame the suicides of farmers as acts caused by “the government”.

Excessive prayer keeps Filipinos unaware of many of the truly important points.

The fact is, everybody is subject to the ebbs and flows of prices as dictated by the Law of Supply and Demand in a free market. If this law is to be “repealed” on the bases of the shrill “activism” of a noisy mob of missguided relics of the Cold War, then best approach is to get some good representation into the legislature in the next national elections. For now, perhaps the more important guidance our “thought leaders” could issue to their flock is to take a bit more personal accountability for their fortunes. Their god would be pleased.

  1. This is the first I’ve heard about farmers committing suicide. Maybe they finally realized how stupid they had been for planting those terrible purple onions when they should have been planting the large, delicious yellow onions. I would probably commit suicide also if I woke up one day and realized how stupid I had been.

  2. Ah Kadamay, the landgrabber arm of commies, now also among the liar arms. Or at least exploiters of a story, maybe twisting it to serve their own ends. Well, not surprising, that’s the commie way.
