Finally, a KC issues the call

Catholic frat calls for day of prayer vs RH bill

The Knights of Columbus (KC), an international Catholic fraternal service organization, has called for a National Day of Prayer to oppose the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill in Congress.

According to an article posted on the Union of Catholic Asian News (UCANews) website, the KC said the day of prayer will help people understand why the Church is against the RH bill.

“Prayer is the best weapon to counter the government’s plan to destroy natural family planning and people’s morals," said Primitivo Chua, a member of the group. [So was it really the KofC Philippines or just Brother Sir Knight Primitivo?  I did not find any announcement in the KofC Philippines website.]

Chua, former president of the Philippine Medical Association, also invited lawmakers to be a part of the "national reflection" over the bill.

However, he did not say when or where the day of prayer will be held.

Earlier, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines indicated it will use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Friendster, and Multiply to provide information about its stand against the RH bill. [Finally!]

“The Church will use Facebook, Twitter and related sites to provide the right information and educate the public, especially the youth," Father Kunegundo Garganta, executive secretary of the Catholic Bishops’ Episcopal Commission on Youth said.


Some of those who commented in the news article said that the CBCP has "unleashed their dogs".

If you'll call me and those who are faithful to the teachings of the Church, Hounds of the Lord...
