I WONDER IF the headline of Philip C. Tubeza’s article yesterday — “‘Damaso’ strikes anew, rips anti-RH poster” — was done in sincerity.
Anti-Church tour guide and RH advocate Carlos Celdran, who had accused Catholic bishops of being the villainous Padre Damaso of Noli Me Tangere lore, was now the one recognized as Damaso(!).
Whatever the case may be, it is refreshing that the Inquirer is now also reporting on the questionable acts which some pro-choice people do. Perhaps the next one would be on alleged bribery happening to (supposedly) pro-choice people in the House of Representatives and public demonstrations. Or the alleged monetary pressure which pro-choice foreign groups and pharmaceutical companies give to lawmakers.
Of course, it may be true that the photo which the Inquirer placed in the its letters-to-the-editor page last Tuesday was selected unfairly (showing less people than there actually were in the February inter-faith prolife rally), but at least signs of editorial “reflection” seem evident.
Now they see the absurdity and hypocrisy of calling for informed choice and reasoned debate at the same time destroying the properties of others, such as what Mr. Celdran did.
