Chiz: Right-of-reply bill on wrong side of history


chizSenator Francis “Chiz” Escudero said on Saturday that any attempt to curtail press freedom has always been opposed, not only by media but also the people, and history has shown that it will ultimately fail.

“This is not the first attempt to pass a right-of-reply bill in the Senate,” said Escudero, who has taken the lead to oppose the measure sponsored by Sen. Aquilino Pimentel.

In a statement, he disclosed that a similar bill, Senate Bill No. 903, was sponsored in the pre-martial law upper chamber by Senators Ambrosio Padilla, Mamintal Tamano, and Rene Espina.

He said that the National Press Club at that time, then led by Eddie Monteclaro, pointed out that “the right to reply is better realized through editorial discretion and voluntary acts rather than through forcible dictation through state machinery which infringes upon a basic freedom.”

The atheist bus campaign

These were written across a bus in Britain. British are rich people and they hold a different set of values and tolerance for this the kind of advertising they espouse.

The advertisers are not saying there is NO GOD. The advertisers are stating that there is PROBABLY NO GOD.

These two concepts are different.

They are also saying that if there is God, there is worry and life cannot be enjoyed.

So, if there is probably no God, you can stop worrying and start enjoying your life.

In Europe, the problem of churches is that the number of parishioners attending church services had continually been dwindling. Low church attendance leads to decreased tithes and pledges.

Tirador para sa pulis?


Pumulot ng stick o bato. Ito ang payo ni Archbishop Oscar Cruz sa mga estudyante, lalo na ang mga kababaihan na matuto silang ipagtanggol ang kanilang mga sarili sa sino mang maaaring manakit o umabuso sa kanila.

SY filesSa mga hindi na maiiwasang pagkakataon, aniya kailangan matuto silang pumulot ng ano mang bagay katulad ng stick o bato na maaaring pamukpok sa sino mang aatake sa kanila at mananamantala sa kanilang kahinaan.

Dahilan na rin sa maraming insidenteng nagaganap na karahasan at pang-aabuso kung saan karamihan sa mga biktima ay mga bata at babae, pinakiusapan ng arsobispo ang mga kapulisan ng Dagupan City Police Station (DCPS) na turuan at sanayin ang mga babaeng esrtudyante ng self defense.

Sa ngayon on-going ang self-defense training program para sa mga junior at senior students ng St. John’s Cahedral School na nakabase sa Dagupan City.
