CHAMP COULD BRING PHILIPPINES INTO 21ST CENTURY
San Francisco, CA- The king of boxing Manny Pacquiao is reportedly spending New Years in Australia. He returns to the ring May 7 vs. Shane Mosley. As a newly elected Philippine Congressman, Manny has been working on some minor legislation. Why doesn’t Congressman Pacquiao bring his country into the 21st century, at least as far as women’s rights are concerned and get them to legalize divorce in the Philippines?
LIVING A LIFE THAT IS A NIGHTMARE
The power men have over women in the Philippines can be viewed as antiquated by some, barbaric by others. I couldn’t envision not being able to get out if I were to marry the wrong person. Flipping the coin, I can’t imagine a woman being trapped in a horrible life with a man until death do they part. Is this because of the Catholic Church’s power? One of the few religions that force priests and nuns to live a life of celibacy, we’ve seen where that has gone with priests around the world and their abuse of children.
AM I ALL ALONE HERE FOLKS?
In closing, is it just me that is blown away by this denial of basic human rights, for women in particular. Wouldn’t or doesn’t this make adultery a common thing nationally?
