Another atheist who decries the RH Bill
The following is from the pen of "BongV", the webmaster of the AntiPinoy website. BongV has written much anti-Catholic stuff and the inclusion of his article in the blog is by no means an endorsement of his philosophy. This article is included solely to show that opposition to the RH bill is not merely "a Catholic thing", but is supported by strong economic and demographic arguments that non-Catholics can agree with.
What’s with this – if you are not for RH Bill you are not Secular? That’s a logical fallacy. A non-sequitur.
I am an atheist, for individual liberty, small government, small taxes – and against the RH bill because it is not the right solution to poverty alleviation – econ lib is.
To support RH Bill so that one will be seen as “secular” is wrong.
Given the same amount of time and congressmen – which has the biggest impact on poverty? RH or econ lib? Priorities… Pareto Principle.
Econ lib addresses the issues of population and econ growth – RH bill and free condoms creates MORE MENDICANTS whose votes can be bought with taxpayers money – your money – that’s throwing good money after bad.
Why take a seriously flawed bill if it’s not doing you any good? A fool and his money are soon parted.
