Can FACEBOOK “F*** JESUS CHRIST Group” co-exist with the Faithful?

Posted by darbs on September 17, 2009

Today, I received an email – a petition letter to protest against the Facebook Group who called themselves “F*** Jesus Christ Group.”

Here is the forwarded email I received:

Please  help US TO REMOVE THIS GROUP FROM THE POPULAR WEBSITE FACEBOOK!

JUST ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST AND FORWARD, IT ONLYTAKES A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME!!!!!!!!

This mail serves as a petition to protest the group “F*** Jesus Christ” which appears on the popular website Facebook.  Though the group, claims to be for the freedom of speech – it is offensive to Christians around the world.

No longer will we stand and watch Jesus Christ being abused by people who think it is ok to hide behind ‘freedom of speech’. When a picture of the Prophet Muhammed appeared in a Danish newspaper, the Muslim community united and ensured action was taken.

By adding your name to the bottom of this petition, you are calling on all Christian leaders, to be the voice for all Christians and speak out against this blatant abuse of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We want Facebook to remove this group and others like it with immediate effect. It is not acceptable!

There are at least 357 signatories to date.

Interesting eh… “The wages of sin is death!” that leads me to this blog entitled, “What it takes to be an atheist under Talibanic belief.”

    tsk tsk tsk..
    ang bad naman no’n
    pero parang nakita ko na nga po ng name ng group na iyan dati, pero di ko naman siya pinansin..

    • darbs said

      Nik. Salamat sa pagbisita. Nakita ko rin yang group na yan pero just like you hindi ko rin pinansin… I don’t condone it. Masakit sa mata, bad taste…bad! bad!

      However, ito naman ang sa akin.

      Di ko pinansin dahil para sa akin sila ung nagbigay kulay sa mga CHARACTERS/contrabida NA NAGPAKO KAY JESUS CHRIST tuwing semana santa.

      Sila ung mas nagbigay buhay sa aking paniniwala. Sila ung mga taong kasamang pinatawad sa Death ni Jesus.

      No longer will we stand and watch Jesus Christ being abused by people

      Good point! Agree 100 percent but… if we don’t want to see Jesus Christ being abused…killed over and over again….

      Why Mel Gibson’s Movie Passion of Christ is one of the most watch movie of all times?

      If so, why are we keep on celebrating Christ Death, year after year after year.

      If so, why are we keep on seeing crosses and/or Christ hanging on the cross everywhere that would remind us of that brutal killing?

      Is it not Christianity a forgiving religion?

      What is it now?

      Do you want to radicalize Christianity?

      Please educate me…

      Please rewired my brain…

      Thank you.

        Don’t mocked Christ. these people love by Christ and I pray that they will meet Christ in their life. if there are no people share the words to them or they didn’t open their minds judgement will come to them. Let’s pray for them.

        • darbs said

          Thank you RYan. Cool!

          Interesting…

          Don’t mocked Christ…they didn’t open their minds judgement will come to them.

          There should be a law in this land to making Christ mockery illegal and put anybody to prison for doing so.

  2. ang comment ko ay hindi related sa post:

    darbs, pwedeng pwede mo ipost ung entry ko. salamat. i really admire x-seminarians na punong-puno pa rin ng zeal for evangelization.

    in our congregation, medyo organized na ang aming mga x-sems. we call them XVD…

    • darbs said

      @Father Fel, SVD. I don’t know what to say. I am just trying to do the best as I can to make sense ning desyerto sa pagtoo without spending my hard earned dollar to shrinks.

  3. bonz said

    ….Dito sa Dayo (NDAS) pwede rin kaya ma organize? Here in Isulan we have a small group gathered together and call ourselves, XMS. We are still serving the Church despite the experiences that we have in the past. Christ be with Us all!

    bakit pag sa middle east mo ginawa yang ganyan kay muhammed eh putol agad ang ulo mo. then again, western society kasi. kahit na abusado sa christians, they can always say that they have freedom of speech.
    btw, ayusin mo naman link mo sa comments mo nang dito ako malink agad at di dun sa isang di mo ina-update. 🙂

    • darbs said

      Got it. Tama ka ano.my apology for the inconvenience…salamat po for pointing it out. Inayos ko na and of course ipinaskil na rin kita sa blogroll Mr. Nonsense.

      bakit pag sa middle east mo ginawa yang ganyan kay muhammed eh putol agad ang ulo

      hahahaha! unfair nga ano?

      Remember, there was a time sa History ng Christianity na hindi lang pugot ulo, kasama pa ang sunog, bitay, torture, stoning ng mga HERETICS, forced conversion (turo doon sa comment ni Fr. Fel, SVD).

      Ah, HISTORY OF THE CHURCH! It can be radicalized. Alam mo naman ang tao mahilig mag justify sa lahat ng action.

      All I can say is that the word used ng grupong “Kapa” Jesus Christ na iyan is hateful, rude, tasteless. . .

      Mas malala pa nga ang ginawa ni St. Paul. I guess, St. Paul was an ex-member of this FJC group before his conversion.

    Hi father Fel, i visited your blog and i enjoyed reading your entry, nakakatuwa kasi nakakarelate ako especially on your buhay seminarista…nakakatawa marami na kasing nagtanong sa akin, sabay sabi…”Seminary ka di ba?”hehehehe. Thank you POuh.

    one more thing i would just like to ask your opinion fr,. why is it despite the religiosity (I mean the dominance of the Catholic religion) of the Filipino people, still we rank as one of the worst country in the world in terms of human rights, justice, corruption atc.. ?

    • Thank you Bonz…isa pang masayang story yang lalapit ang mga tao sa yo at magtatanong, “seminaryo ka?” ang mga matataray na seminarista ay sasagot, “hindi po ako building.”

      salamat naman at nagustuhan mo ang post ko. more to come…

      regarding your inquiry kung bakit despite the religiosity of the Filipino people, we still rank as one of the worst country in the world in terms of human rights, justice, corruption atc..

      hay (long sigh)…

      ako nga rin nagtatanong niyan. sa palagay ko we are not really christianized enough. remember the cross and the sword? when the spanish missionaries came to the philippines, ang priority nila ay conversion of the heathens, but less on catechism, in fact some of them even involved threats.

      your question made me recall ambeth antonio’s article about the conversion of rajah humabon. our history books made a great deal about the conversion of rajah humabon and his 800 (?) household. pero sabi ni ambeth, sa chronicle ni pigafetta, there was nothing extraordinary in his conversion. tinakot lang siya ni magellan na kung di magpapaconvert ay babalikan at papatayin silang lahat. kaya nagpabinyag si humabon and his household. naging christians sila but as to their lifestyle, ganun pa rin. walang nabago.

      i also observed that some of our christian living teachers in the catholic schools are not really equipped with christian doctrines na dapat ituro sa school. i admire schools na side by side with their christian living is community outreach so as to balance theory and actual Christian practice.

        Parang naamoy ko dito ung Social Justice Skills.

      • Mr. Nonsense said

        if i may take a stab at the question….”being ranked as one of the worst country in the world in terms of human rights, justice, corruption etc..” has nothing to do with being christians. it has lots to do with the government systems (from malacanang to baranggays). and this is probably the consequence of the continuous instability in the country. ruled by spain, then by the U.S., then invaded by japan, lots of wars, lots of coup de etats, lots of changing of th guard, the philippines havent had a chance yet or have been stable long enough to have a it’s own identity or master a political/social system due to continous change of systems. corruption have began imbedded in our culture and it makes it difficult for us to have justice and human rights. then we enable it with the “lagay” system…..(break muna)

        • darbs said

          @Mr. Nonsense habang nag break ka, ipagpatuloy ko na lang ang litaniya…

          Kumpadre system…

          Palakasan system…

          Bata-bata system…

          Tapang tapangan system…

            From another angle:
            Why can’t we say that when we run for a political office,a business, start a family, enter the priesthood, organize a community, rally in the street, blog, social climb – we are actually in search of more self-knowledge: the age-old question, yes more Augustinian, both philosophical and theological: SINO NGA BA AKO? It’s the struggle for PERSONAL MEANING that’s behind every human activity. What if the truth is – self-knowledge is only found in union with God, allowing God to speak more through our activities rather than being enslaved by the ambitious dictates of the human ego we hate to see in our politicians, in countries that remain imperialists, in religious institutions and televangelists who are control freaks? WHAT IF?

            • bonz said

              kuayawa gyud nimo dapish ug mga Ideas ba very philosophical kaayo ba, like the questions ” is there really truth? how do you know that you know?

    Got the same forwarded mail Darbs. Hindi ko rin pinansin. Human violence had killed Jesus and it’s no surprise he is being continually mocked, bullied, spat on, ginadagmalan diha sa atong mga kabus ug kinaiyahan. But Christ remains Eucharistic in a non-violent way because a Eucharist of nonviolence is the only true way of transforming hearts…

    • darbs said

      In addition,

      “Nonviolence, to be a potent force, must begin with the mind. Nonviolence of the mere body without the cooperation of the mind is nonviolence of the weak of the cowardly, and has, therefore, no potency. It is a degrading performance. If we bear malice and hatred in our bosoms and pretend not to retaliate, it must recoil upon us and lead to our destruction.”–Gandhi

    @Dfish,

    WHAT IF?

    A former nun, Karen Armstrong left her convent in the late 1960s, and for 13 years she distanced herself from organized religion. She ended up working in television, and on an assignment in Jerusalem she had a kind of epiphany about the similarities among the major world religions. It was the study of those religions that allowed her to revisit her own faith.

    It is..

    @Bonz. seconded the motion. tinuod giod ka. pirti giod ka lawom ang panghuna-hunang DFish. very philosophical og kalimtan ba nato ang heavenlenly mind.

    Desert Fishing na iya toto… ano-anohon mo na man.

    Any haw…daw philosophical din ang thought mo Bonz. kay indi mo ma appreciate ang kadalom sang isip kag iya nga pagka pilosopikal kung indi dalom imo nga isip.

    Sin-o lang bala ang mag fly together haw?

    Here is I blockquote.

    like the questions ” is there really truth? how do you know that you know?

    What do you think Dfish?
