His Holiness

At Mindanao1081 Yahoogroups i received this forwarded email from Dr. Jose V. Abueva . I wonder if this really true or just being made for Fun.

The Pope was finishing his sermon. He ended it with the Latin phrase, “Tuti Homini” – Blessed be Mankind.

A women’s rights group approached the Pope the next day. They noticed that the pope blessed all Mankind, but not Womankind. The next day, after his sermon, the Pope concluded by saying, “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini” … Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.

The next day, a gay-rights group approached the Pope. They said that they noticed that he blessed mankind and womankind, and asked if he could also bless gay people. The Pope said, “Sure”.

The next day, the Pope concluded his sermon with, …”Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini, et Tuti Fruiti.

After reading this it give me a good laugh but after re-reading and reflecting, this world has many nor different paradigm and many rights group and movement evolving. In this Masculine world or Patriarchal society dictates mostly how we run things in order. In Feminist Linguist they can argue to a radical change how it approach language like changing the term of history – HIStory to HERstory. So in feminist may ask: “What’s the herstory of the Philippines?”.

How about the gay? is there a call for such language approach – i don’t know but here in the Philippines, Gay’s has their own language and terminologies which until now it kinda fascinated me. They have their own world.

Is it realistic to accommodate all this calls from different rights group? Is a Patriarchal society really oppressed and discriminate the other sex like the feminine or the third sex? Accommodating all this will liberate and achieve the wholeness of their being person? Is this possible?

What do you think?

One thought on “His Holiness

  1. Most of the time when i hear someone complaining about sexism, they usually turn out to be the sexist themselves. Like this dorm manager in Silliman that i know of. She keeps on complaining about patriarchal dominance too much that she is borderline discriminating men.

    Also, I have yet to meet or see someone that discriminates women.
