Fake news pa more...

THERE is ongoing an intense campaign against fake news in media, especially broadcast. Everyone has gotten so sensitive and allergic about fake news spewed out by media. If reporters and anchors doubt the accuracy of the news handed them by their writers, why don’t the anchors just say, “I can’t tell yet,” “I’m not sure about this one,” or “Ewan ko.” Jessica and Christian shouldn’t be too emphatic when what they are saying is debatable.

Both anchors are endorsing the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, CBCP’s “80-85 percent in the Philippines are Romanos.” Both anchors repeatedly broadcast that 8 out of 10 of the population in the Philippines are practicing RCs. Fake news.

Jessica and Christian, at the break of the century, maybe, 100 percent of Filipinos were Romano Catolico, yes, when the Philippines was a colony, out of fear that the Spanish freyles would beat them up if they weren’t. Today, stats of Jessica Soho and Christian Esquerra show that their news writers made no effort to verify the “80-85 percent” that CBCP still spoon-feeds to the gullible, which media disseminate without validating. Read on: 

Latest stats from national religion census and surveys broken down by constituents of the c. 103.4 million population of the Philippines: 

Romano Catholic, 43.9 percent or 46 million; Christian, 19.3 percent or 20.8 million; Islam, 11 percent or 11.6 million; Aglipayan, 3 percent or 3.6 million; Iglesia Ni Cristo, 2.23 percent or 2.37million; Dating Daan Church of God, 2.9 percent or 3 million; Hinduism, 8.7 percent or 9 million; Chinese traditional religions, 3.8 percent or 3.94 million; Buddhism, 2 percent or 2.6 million; Primal-indigenous, 1 percent or 1.3 million; Traditional & Diasporic,  2 percent  or 2.6 million; Sikhism, .023 percent or 25,000; Juche, .018 percent or 19,000; Spiritism, .015 percent or 15,000; Judaism, .009 percent or 14,000; Baha’I, .007 percent or 9,000; Jainism, .009 percent or 10,000; Shinto, .026 percent or 27,000; Cao Dai, .004 percent or 4,600; Zoroastrianism, 0.92 percent  or 1 million; Tenrikyo, .001 percent or 2,000; Neo-Paganism, .01 percent or 12,000; Unitarian-Universalism, .056 percent 580,000; Rastafarianism, .006 percent or 6,000; and Secular/Agnostic/Atheist/Nonpracticing, 11 percent or 11.4 million. 

Not available are the number of practicing members of minor sectarian groups in the Philippines within this alphabetical listing: Adventist, Aglipayan, Anglican, Amish, Animists, Baha’i, Baptist, Born Again, Buddhists, Brethren, Calvinist, Church of God Dating Daan, Christian Scientists, Community of Christ, Confusianists, Eastern Orthodoz, Evangelicans, Gnosticists, Hindus, Iglesia ni Cristo, Islam, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Judaism, Lutheran, Latter Day Saints; LDS Restorationists, Messianic Jews, Mormons, Orthodox Churches, Pentecost, Quakers Society of Friends, Rastafarians, Rizalistas, Roman Catholic Church, Seventh Day Adventist, Sikhs, Taoists, Unification Church, Unitarian-Universalists, Unity Church, Worldwide Church of God, Way International, Scientology, Shi’it, Shinto, Spiritism, Sunni, Unificationists, United Church of Christ, Zoroastrianism. Plus the secular, agnostics, non-practicing, atheists, nonbelievers, and others.

These theological stats came with other interesting studies: If the population of the Earth were reduced to that of a small town with 100 people, it would look something like this: 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 Americans (northern and southern), 8 Africans, 52 women, 48 men, 70 colored-skins, 30 Caucasians, 89 heterosexuals, 11 homosexuals, 6 people would own 59 percent of the whole world’s wealth and all of them will be from the United States of America, 80 would have bad living conditions, 70 would be undereducated, 50 underfed, 1 would die today, 2 would be born, 1 would have a computer, 1 (only one) will have higher education.

The theological distribution in this small town called Philippines of 100 residents, roughly: Romano Catholic, 43; Christian, 20; Islam, 10; Aglipayan, 3; Iglesia Ni Cristo, 3; Dating Daan Church of God, 2; Hinduism, 8; Chinese traditional religion, 4; Buddhism, 2; Primal-indigenous, 1; Traditional & Diasporic, 2; Sikhism, .025; Juche, .018; Spiritism, .015; Judaism, .009; Baha’I, .007; Jainism, .009; Shinto, .027; Cao Dai, .004; Zoroastrianism, 1; Tenrikyo, .001; Neo-Paganism, .01; Unitarian-Universalism, .058; Rastafarianism, .006; and Secular/Agnostic/Atheist/Nonpracticing, 9. 

When you look at the world from this point of view, you can see there is a real need for solidarity, understanding, patience and education. Also think about the following:

This morning, if you woke up feeling great, then you are healthier than the 1 million people who will be dead by next week from ailments. Most of them with unfilled prescriptions on their death beds for lack of money. If you never suffered a war, the loneliness of the jail cell, the agony of torture, or hunger, you are more fortunate than 500 million people in the world who have.

If there is a food in your ref, you have shoes and clothes, you have bed and a roof, you are richer than 75 percent of the people in the world. If you have a bank account, money in your wallet for a McDo meal, and some coins in your savings-box, you belong to the 8 percent of the people on the world who are well-to-do. If you have read all these, you are blessed since you have done enough schooling. You don’t belong to the 200 million people in the world who never had the opportunity to learn to read!

If you can worship your God without fear of infliction or condemnation, you are more blessed than 3 million people in the world. The CBCP and the narrow-minded Catolicos who threaten all with the hell of their God’s condemnation, putting gullible Filipinos among those 3 million referred to in the previous sentence.
