Making a Stand

I am writing this blog to make a stand.

I am writing this blog to show my love.

 

I am writing this blog not to judge.

 

I am writing this blog not to discriminate and offend anyone.

 

I am writing this blog to express what I think is right.

 

For days now, media and social media is on a silent battle. We see people changing their profile pictures into rainbows, other into their wedding photo; others are red and a cross.

 

Some of us are not vocal enough to exactly say where we stand, maybe because we want to avoid hurting the people we love. Some probably are afraid to be bullied. Others chose to do their fight the silent way. While others took all the guts they have to express if they are pro or anti with the much highlighted issue on the same-sex marriage.

 

I am against it!

 

With respect to the LGBT community – I do have friends and family members who are one of them.

 

I don’t discriminate you, I respect you.

 

I don’t condemn you, I love you

 

I totally respect where you stand and though I would like to pull you out from where you are – there is nothing I can do but PRAY. I am with the Pope, that we love the person but not his/her sin.

 

On this entry, I just want to lay down, why I am against to the law passed in US and other western countries. (Although Philippines – is not directly affected to it – but our society has a great number of LGBTs which definitely celebrate when the bill was passed).

 

1.      From the begging, God created man & woman (Adam & Eve – in Genesis)

 

2.      Marriage from its foremost definition is a union between a man and a woman in order to create another human. God’s blessing is to let us go and multiply.

 

3.      Such that of Sodom & Gomorrah – God wasn’t pleased to the activities in that place and so he showed his wrath. I am not saying that He will do the same. . . Because I know God is a forgiving God. But nevertheless if we are to choose; why be like Sodom & Gomorrah when we can do better?

 

4.      And finally, God’s commandments were the same before, today and tomorrow.

 

I am Pro-Life. This is not bigotry, this is just sharing my opinion.

I am Catholic

When our fellow believers start to question us about our faith, most of the time we tend to back down because our faith seemed to be just a “hand-me-down” culture/religion… It is important that as a faithful believer, we don’t only follow blindly but we follow with a grateful heart because we know deep in our hearts the reasons why we do these things. So here’s a list/guide of the bible scriptures that will answer the cabwebs on our heads related to the Catholic faith.

 SMOKING DOLL

It’s our second time here.
I’m not a big fan of Thai food but to my surprise, the very first time we tried this restaurant at Gate Towers, Reem Island called Smoking Doll… it has left a great impression on my palate. So Kokobear and I decided to take another round in this Asian Fused Restaurant.

 

On our first visit the Pad Thai and that smoking/steamy sea bream was a blast! “Impressive!”

 

This time, we tried their Ramadan Feast that has a complete pack of appetizer & soup, main dish and sweets! Here is a treat to the eyes…

 

We both recommend you to try this resto!
