Bishop blasts science, secularism, women and children

Albay bishop challenges priests: restrain secularism, worldly sciences

LEGAZPI CITY, June 20, 2009—Bishop Administrator Lucilo B. Quiambao has challenged all the priests to restrain from secularism, worldly sciences and preserve virtues most relevant to them during the high mass held yesterday at St. Gregory the Great Cathedral, here.

I think priests should at least engage in secularism and “worldly” science (what other science is there?) if they are to be of any worth to society.

Mentioning virtues of meekness, prudence, respect and decorum must be observed and practiced in an effort to win the sinners and weak souls especially the children and women.

Wow, unbelievable! The church can’t seem to shed their misogynist tendancies. How can we take seriously the leaders of the church if they continue to view women as sinners (seductresses like Eve) and/or have weak souls (easily manipulated by talking snakes). And the children, those little ones who seduce pedophile priests with their charming innocence!
