All right boys and girls. A blogger pointed out CBCP lies thrive because we’re all cognitive misers so let’s try another strategy. Feel free to use, grab and remake all the funnies below and in the Flickr album. Click the pics to see the Flickr sets. The Greener album has more lulz.

The Roman Catholic Church’s unique stance on Family Planning and contraception was mostly from Augustine of Hippo’s commentaries before we had sufficient knowledge of human reproduction. Due to the “infallibility” of the Pope, the Roman Catholic Church hinders itself from reissuing statements on dogma that could uplift the lives of its flock including its stance on contraception. Below is an excerpt from Pastrana & Harris’ Demographic Governance and Family Planning: the Philippines’ Way Forward.
Roman Catholicism is the only religion that specifically and explicitly condemns contraception. First, let’s look at other religions and then answer the question why contemporary Catholic teaching is so profoundly different from that of all other religions.

Atty. Sison, seasoned in real life trolling tactics, claims he has “yet to receive from its advocates and supporters a point by point refutation” aside of course from three?four? paragraphs long summary or teeny distortions of most pro-RH arguments which is 40% of the written material. Semantics is everything. Arguments what arguments?
Then he pimps Joffre Balce’s 10 points, which is hilarious (I give you that) but lacks a touch of reality so characteristic of the pro-fetus camp. Did I mention it lacks a certain touch of reality?
A prominent figure of an institution dedicated to moral and spiritual excellence must take care in choosing words to avoid tabloid sensationalism. What the esteemed bishop Oscar V. Cruz has written here, now a propaganda tool by the pro-fetus group, turned the idea of population development into a B-rated horror story courtesy of his “fertile imagination” and “downright fantastic” wit. Oscar V. Cruz knowingly committed again what he preaches God doesn’t want you to do: lie.
City of Guilt is a short documentary about back-alley abortions in Metro Manila, where poor women risk their lives to undergo terrifying abortions. An issue with public policies on providing women the care they need is the interfering influence of the Roman Catholic Church and the political sycophants who cater to her wishes.
What the “pro-life” pundits fail to realize is that abortion is a desperate attempt at fertility control. While the middle class can afford abortions in clinics, the marginalized turn to dangerous back-alley abortions. Marginalized women lack education and resources, the bulwarks against runaway fertility.

You got to hand it to the anti-reproductive health fanatics. From ridiculous assumptions such as the Reproductive Health Bill legalizing abortion, immediate population depletion to out of vogue assumptions that population development programs are not important, absurdities, logic cartwheels and random religious invocations are gifts that just keep on giving.
The latest addition to their arsenal of slippery slope arguments, appeal to emotion, selective observation, red herrings, appeal to motive, wishful thinking (this one is a winner)… is “liberty.” Yes, folks. They took Papa Oreilly’s lessons to heart and are now rebranding “liberty.”
