What's Up! Roman Catholics' Youth Day

Hi blog,


THE WORLD YOUTH DAY

The Catholics are calling it the world youth day.

I used to be a part of this almost 13 years ago. I don’t regret ever going there nor do I want to remember it but hey, there’s just no use. Whenever this event comes up, I am reminded that I was once a blind follower.

Time to take away the blinds that cover the said “occasion”

THE WORLD UNTRUTH DAY

First, as one blogger pointed out, (can’t quite figure out where I read it) it shouldn’t be called the World Youth Day. It’s d*mn offensive. Could you please call it “THE CATHOLIC YOUTH DAY”. Better yet, call it the proper way: “THE WORLD UNTRUTH DAY” .

Second, it is not true that welcoming all these people would boost your tourism economy. For pete’s sakes, they are there because of the EVENT and not for TOURISM. Believe me, after they had gone to your place because of this event, they will not be back in a long time, well at least most of them won’t. You ask why? BECAUSE your WORLD UNTRUTH DAY participants are FUNDED by the people who, themselves cannot go to the event. How many poor people live their lives, working, striving really hard just to have food at their table 3x a day, 7 days a week, give ALMS to their churches just to be wasted on these “righteous” people to go to other countries to have fun, to mingle with other people. What if you put all the money you have, instead of giving the Pope a pope mobile, which he really doesn’t need if he just stayed at the Vatican, and gave all the poor people enough CAPITAL to START THEIR LIVES to become productive, earning citizens of their respective countries.

Third, what is the essence of sending the youth to these events? As far as I know these gathering help in reinforcing the FUDs (Fears, Uncertainties, Doubts) about reality. In my time, we are taught (not made to realize, btw) that all men( and women of course) are sinners. What’s wrong with that? For one, it is a BIG LIE! Sinners, to whom? Sinners of what? What did I do wrong? What did I do to deserve everlasting punishment in fire and eternal torment? (maybe this blog, but who cares) Nothing? Are you sure? I know I am. Hell is the sickest, vilest idea that man ever came up with to control other people. It is created by man’s imagination and nothing else. It is the scariest scare tactic that should stop spreading and anyone who spread the lies that Hell is real should be made to shut up.

Heaven, too, is a product of malicious thinking. Promising rewards of good fortune, good health and blissful happiness without proof should be sued for false advertisement. People
live just one (conscious) life. After that, nothing else. Promising people that they would be better off without anything in this life is like asking them to set aside all that makes them happy and free. In truth, the heaven concept contradicts with practice of liberty for all men.

Fourth,  shame on you people. Calling it the world youth day. Pure arrogance. Unadulterated pride and sheer arrogance. You are NOT the world and the world is NOT you. Catholicism is but 6% of all religions in the world. If you want to call it world youth day, invite other religions and non-believers, too. If you want to celebrate (not celibate :) the world youth day do it secularly.


===================================================================

They are at it again!

The Catholic Priests are at it again in my country. These people simply has no respect for the government and the government should not pay respect to those people who can’t respect the government. There is nothing wrong in going against abortion. I don’t care if you are for or anti-abortion (but please, before you EDUCATE your followers in these matters, do it scientifically). If you want your followers to fight against something, coercion should not be at the top of the list. Threats of ex-communication and massive smear campaign against people who pursue reproductive health laws in the Philippines are not the ways of a “True Christian” , or is it? By your actions, you tell people that you are pro-population explosion. You are pro-poverty ( remember prayers and how it keeps money in your pockets and away from poor, hopeless souls?) and you are anti-human race.

I am not FOR abortion, that’s for sure. I think it’s all up to the person. People, if you don’t want abortion, start at the roots. Explain the process of reproduction and the repercussions thereof to kids who are old enough to understand. Don’t scare them. Don’t give them false pretenses that you should DO it with the one you LOVE. Remember, at a young age, LOVE could be really really really really really deceptive. Teach them the truth. Give them the tools that they need to make that decision clear in their head. Or at least, when they really decide that they want to experience it (coitus) , they would be smart enough to use protection.

One thing is for sure though: people are lazy. We all are. Lazy enough to ignore that our environment does not heal itself without our help. Lazy enough to ignore that the children, indeed our future would never be without our guidance and help. We are too lazy to understand that there are some things that we need to seek out and pass on to others so that eventually, we would have answers to our most sought-after questions.

Boldly, I say, these priests are too lazy to tell people “it’s ok. You can have fun.” because they are not having any as a punsihment for being to lazy to have real jobs that will be most helpful to the community.

Without religion, there would be no mouths to feed. Only hands that work.


Renz here, OUT!

Your argument would be more persuasive if you backed it up with facts. Its called World Youth Day because it is open to all the world's youths. At no time was the event ever limited to Catholics only.

>"BECAUSE your WORLD UNTRUTH DAY participants are FUNDED by the people who, themselves cannot go to the event."

And your proof for this is what?

>"What did I do wrong? What did I do to deserve everlasting punishment in fire and eternal torment? (maybe this blog, but who cares) Nothing? Are you sure? I know I am."

First, there would be original sin and its effects.

Second, there would be the sins that you commited, or more likely the sins of ommisions (things you should have done , but didn't).

But, you've lived a perfect life and don't believe in hell, so what's the problem?

>"Hell is the sickest, vilest idea that man ever came up with to control other people. It is created by man’s imagination and nothing else."

What is your proof that hell was "created by man’s imagination and nothing else?"

Btw, Catholics believe "hell" is the eternal separation of the immortal soul from God. You may be confusing man-made myths and misconceptions of hell with the Catholic doctrine on "hell".

>" Catholicism is but 6% of all religions in the world.

Um, slight miscalculation here. Catholics are 1/6th of the world population. 100 divided by 6 is about 16. 16% of the world is Catholic. BTW, Catholics are growing worldwide as a religion at a rate of 18 million new Catholics every year.

>"If you want to call it world youth day, invite other religions and non-believers, too."

Everyone was invited including yourself. Why didn't you accept your invitation and go?

All in all, yur post seems a case of sour grapes.

God bless...

Hello timothy. Id like to comment on your comment. :D

>First, there would be original sin and its effects.

assuming that it is true. it is very unjust to punish people who dont commit any sins. i mean, why should we suffer the consequences? are we the one who ate the forbidden fruit? example, if your father committed a crime, would it be ok for you if you or your son would suffer the consequences of your father? opkors not.

>What is your proof that hell was "created by man’s imagination and nothing else?"

Btw, Catholics believe "hell" is the eternal separation of the immortal soul from God. You may be confusing man-made myths and misconceptions of hell with the Catholic doctrine on "hell".

the burden of proof lies upon you since your religion claim that hell and heaven exist. show to us that they exist.
