Black Dark Feast
Why ask a blessing from a lifeless dark black statue? You are more blessed than that mere statue for you have life but the statue it hasn’t.
Yearly, sad to say many “Christian” Filipinos participate and blindly set their hope to the lifeless black Dark statue of the religiously so-called “black Nazarene” or black skinned version of “Jesus” bearing a wooden Roman cross that is used for capital punishment for criminals at its yearly celebration called “Feast of the Black Nazarene”. This religious feast is a sensational Christian feast in the Philippines because of many injuries incurred to the blind believers during the procession of the black dark lifeless statue wherein the blind believers blindly believe the black dark lifeless statue makes miracles and blessings to those who blindly believe to it. Moreover, the Philippine media have sensationalized it yearly, thus it is a double benefits for the Catholic Church to milk the pockets of these ignorant fool blind believers. It is a “major, major” celebration for them, an additional thanks to the media for more control and quick deceives tactics.
Let’s play “blind, blind” to this futile and injure-inflicting religious feast wherein never mind the Filipino people being rob of their senses and reasoning; never mind the Filipino people being rob of their hard-earned little money, anyway it is for the sake of a money-face “Christian” god; never mind the Filipino people being rob of their own miserable lives and physical members, anyway the “black Nazarene” will miraculously donate its lifeless existence and its lifeless feet and hands; never mind the Filipino people being seen by the world intellectuals as a mere laughingstock which they could easily deceived and control; Yes, Never mind for the sake of Religious Tolerance : learned to Respect and Honor even though the religion already suck people’s lives, senses, reasoning and money. Yes Never Mind.
This is how every new Philippine administration is doing: NeverMind.
How can the Philippine administration never ban such religious feast that cause multiple robbery crimes every year to the Philippine’s own people, is not it, Christianity is a colonial religion brought by Spaniards, how come the Philippines could not freed itself from this kind of colonial bondage and enslavery? Why let yourselves be enslave if you have the choice to be free? I bet the Catholic Church already know the stupidity of this feast but for the sake of power-keeping they exploit the ignorant believers anyway they could benefit from the ignorance and blindness of these foolish blind believers, financially and socially, at least they serve a purpose for keeping the ground of the Catholic Church strong.
The Catholic Church keeps on feeding spiritual blindness though they already know the truth behind their own-made religion, of course as I said, for Power-Keeping, so that they could do what they wanted to their believers; whatever they command their believers to do, their blind believers, joyfully and blind obey.
Hay Philippines, hay Filipinos! L But anyway, there are intelligent and smart Filipinos out there and do not give in to this faithful but brainless feast.
This is just one of the colonial religious feasts; the Philippine is still bondage of wherein unlearned Filipinos knew that it is a part of the original Pilipino culture and religion whereas it is not. The colonial powers and control is still in effect among the Filipino people and the Philippines is not yet truly Free contrary to what it is projected to the public.
The colonial conquerors may not be physically present in the Philippines but their sphere of influence in the Philippines remain still standing and influencing the Filipino minds because the Filipino themselves LOVE to remain it still.
