fight the man, do the time

i think if carlos celdran had been sentenced for something like "disturbing the peace" or whatever, it would have been easier for his supporters to accept. then he would've only become some folk hero whose act of protest got slapped down by the man/bishop. still, attention won; issue raised: mission accomplished.

but instead, this whole "offending religious feelings" affair has only muddled the issue even further. the rabid anti-catholics are having a field day applying the phrase to everything from the inquisition to pedophile priests. the CBCP, for their part, have yet to comment on the conviction, but remain as blithely pigheaded as ever, feting marcos' widow and such.
