On God, Flooding, and the RH Bill
Twitter has been so active today because it proved to be the most effective way for everyone to summon government agencies, and those who have the means to aid people who are trapped in heavily flooded areas. Talk about "Digital Bayanihan." I salute everyone for trying their best to help by constantly passing information through social media.
But there are just some people who are trying to misuse the power of social media--they're just trying to irk people and much worse, enforcing a fact by using God. Apparently, some people are taking advantage of the situation by tweeting that the Filipinos are being punished for creating the RH Bill which I think, pardon my french, is a STUPID reason to convince everyone that the RH Bill is an "evil" law.

It is quite tactless to tweet about this, especially at a time when almost everyone is suffering and dying in the cold and flood. It's tantamount to saying that those who are currently suffering deserve this punishment, and it's very, very unfair because I'd like to believe that the victims are innocent. I mean, why would God punish those who don't even know that such bill exists, or might not even have an inkling as to what the RH bill is all about? Are these people saying that God is an unjust God? Because that's what it seems to me. C'mon, let's just stop this.
Preaching and abhorring of the RH Bill cannot save people now. Whether you're PRO or ANTI, let's set aside our propagandistic motives for now--there is an apt time for these things. Instead, let's just do our part and spread the relevant information around so we can help our fellowmen in the fastest way possible.
