With the Simbang Gabi (Dawn Masses or Misa de Aguinaldo) about to begin on December 16, Manila police have readied measures to secure churchgoers. [The Police force goes on full alert during this season. Our own KofC Council will provide security to churchgoers. We do this every year. And believe me, we have seen it all...except the attention hungry, overweight, gay...]
The police said the measures include keeping an eye on pro-reproductive health (RH) advocates after a known RH supporter, Carlos Celdran, held a protest inside the Manila Cathedral in September. [Oooooo....Death Eaters! Maybe the Manila Police should call themselves...Aurors? Nice eh?]
Manila Police District (MPD) head Chief Superintendent Roberto Rongavilla said they will watch out for possible confrontations between pro-RH and anti-RH groups during the Dawn Masses. [if you are starving for attention, they will do these stunts. But Lagayman, Dona Consolacion and her Death Eaters must be forwarned. Catholics may not be so forgiving once push comes to shove.]
Radio dzBB's Carlo Mateo reported on Tuesday that the MPD will set up random checkpoints and start their "Christmas duty" on the night of December 15. [Will check points include frisking for Damaso shirts, condoms and boards written with profanities?]
Rongavilla said they will tighten security and deploy K-9 teams near major Catholic churches, including the historic Manila Cathedral, and churches in Quiapo, Malate and Sta. Ana.
He also said he instructed police teams to watch out against fraternities who might make trouble during the Dawn Masses.
According [? According? What you did not report it? What's us with this website?] to the website of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Celdran held a protest on September 30 inside the Manila Cathedral while an interfaith prayer service was going on.
On that day, Celdran, dressed [badly, ghastly] as the Filipino national hero Jose Rizal, shouted inside the cathedral that the Catholic Church should stop meddling in government affairs, especially in its birth control programs. [Hey, he looked fit in that costume. Too fit the buttons are cryin' out for help! Ha!]
Celdran is a known advocate of the controversial RH bill and is usually seen distributing condoms to residents of Intramuros in Manila. The Manila Cathedral is also in Intramuros.
Celdran held a sign that read "Damaso," referring to Padre Damaso, the antagonist priest in Rizal's novel Noli Me Tangere.
After yelling "stop getting involved in politics," he was taken away by Manila police for violating Article 133 of the Revised Penal Code, which prohibits "offending religious feelings."
Article 133 says "the penalty of arresto mayor in its maximum period to prision correccional in its minimum period shall be imposed upon anyone who, in a place devoted to religious worship or during the celebration of any religious ceremony, shall perform acts notoriously offensive to the feelings of the faithful." [Can't wait for him to get what he deserves.] – VVP, GMANews.TV
Lorenz commented in another post that You-Know-Who is another of those rich, uncared for, gay kids left to fend for themselves whose parents just look after the mess they make. You-Know-Who thinks maybe this time that will happen again as You-Know-Who keeps on posting on his Facebook wall about a possible out of court settlement while still keeping that brash, condescending attitude of his/her/it!
Go to Mass for nine days. Keep vigil with the Virgin as she awaits the birth of Her Beloved Son.
And keep Herod's minions out of the Church.
Learn from the 3 Wise Men.
They are not called "wise" for nothing.
