It looks like it’s going to be a classic stand-off between P’noy and the Catholic Church...an irresistible force meeting an immoveable object.
The church is resolute about their stand that the only acceptable form of contraception is Natural Family Planning. All other forms of contraception are sinful. The Magisterium, the authoritative and official voice of the church has said that it will not change its stand in the foreseeable future.
The church is losing poise and credibility by their tendency to grasp at straws and shooting at all moving objects, shadowy or real
Pnoy seems to be having an early lead with legislators picking up the cudgels for him in the senate and in the lower house. Although there was no poll taking as yet, it seems that a significant number of the people is giving their support as well, as shown in postings at Facebook, Twitter and responses to newspaper accounts. All these will give him a firmer resolve to stay the course.
