Fundamentalists And Extremists Are Made Up Of This Kind

This is a response by Claire Angeline Pauig Luczon from an article made by former Senator Francisco “Kit” Tatad titled “A non-Arab Spring?” regarding the call of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to “terminate the debates on the anti-Catholic reproductive health bill” or as we call it RH Bill in his last SONA (State Of The Nation Address).

“[T]here are courageous and virtuous Catholics who will fight for their Faith all the way, regardless of cost or consequence.”- Kit Tatad

If the adverse cost or consequence of fighting for the Faith is borne by the believer, then that may be a virtue. But if it is borne by other people, especially those of other Faiths or non-believers, then that is religious imposition. Romantic as it may sound, it merely translates to there are Catholics who care only about their religion, and not about other people and their circumstances. Fundamentalists and extremists are made up of this kind. – Claire Angeline Pauig Luczon

  1. Miss Claire’s response is tangential to the ideas Sen. Kit Tatad was trying to put acroos in his “Non-Arab Spring” article. The main thesis of Sen Tatad could be gleaned in direct qoutation of the Virginia Declaration of 1776:

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among them are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that when any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…”

    These values – Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – are not dependent on religion. Any person of good-will regardless of religious affiliation (Catholic or not) are entitled to these values.

    I am awed by Sen. Kit Tatad creativity for coining such phrase: A no-Arab Spring!
