The Editor
Damayan-Buluseno Gazette

This refers to the positive comment made by Rev. (Maj.) Salvador G. Gacias on the Catholic Church's stand against Freemasonry that was written in the September-October 2003 issue of the Damyan Buluseno Gazette.

His comments may, however, be likened to the description of St. John the Baptist as that of "a voice crying in the wilderness." In this predominantly Catholic country, the Freemasons are still regarded as those who allegedly worship the devil called Baphomet, spit on the cross and deny Christ, and such absurd charges that can be leveled against members of the Masonic Fraternity. St. John the Baptist, incidentally, is one of the two patrons of Masonry, the other being St. John the Evangelist.

These absurd charges notwithstanding, Freemasons do subscribe to the dictum that it is in his work that the true worth of a man is judge; and the legacies left behind by Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, Manuel L. Quezon, Rafael Palma and currently Justice Reynato S. Puno and Hermogenes Ebdane, Jr. to name a but few, can stand critical evaluation.

In this far-off scenic island called Bohol, I, too, stand on my firm conviction that a mass that will be officiated by a Catholic priest would be totally irrelevant when I am finally called by my Maker. The good that I did, and even the bad, can no longer be altered by a Catholic Mass, the rank of the officiating priest notwithstanding.

Interested readers who have access to the Internet are encouraged to visit the Grand Lodge of the Philippines Website by double-clicking http://www.glphils.org/ for relevant Masonic information.

Sir:

            Maski wara co cabasa an articulo ni Elio na An Totoo Na Katuyuhan-I, pero nabasa co man an II hasta IV.  Naniniwala aco na an intero na sinabi ni Elio didto puro totoo, cay sayo man aco san naging biktima asin buhay na testigo.

            San 1998 elections, na-convinser baya aco ni Anter Fumera na magcandidato para consehal sa linyada niya nan si Nely Fortades.  Aco an nagrepresentar san mga southern barangays san San Antonio, Lalud, Cogon, asin Tinampo.  Dahil sa wara aco paggasto sin sadiri co na cuarta, wara aco pacacampanya sin solo, permi hamoc aco caopod san grupo.  Wara man aco pacapahimo sin sadiri na mga posters asin wara aco pagbayad san PTC, caya con may mga meeting cami sa mga harayo na barangay permi aco sa botnga san caoropod co cay sayo pa retired aco na militar.

            Pag abot san bisperas san election, an mga votante naghahanap sin cuarta, maski diyo hamoc cono. Pero sa paniwala co na magana aco dahil sa an aco plataforma de govierno mao an peace and order asin an sabi co an aco sueldo sa pagca consehal gagamiton co sa pagtindog sin scholarship foundation para sa mga cabataan sa Bulusan na pobre.  Sayo pa an aco experiencia na 25 años sa militar; 3 años sa pagca provincial warden; 5 años na Intelligence Agent sa NISA asin 5 años sa paging Barangay Kagawad sa Bibincahan, Sorsogon, Sorsogon – nan an aco educational attainment B.S. in Criminology & Penology—intero ini wara sin effect, dahilan sa wara aco pagbacal sin boto. Paca tapos san borotohan, sa 26 na candidato para consehal, ica 15 hamok aco. Grabe an marit ko.

            Manonongod dito sa problema san duwa na pamilya na mao hamoc an nagbuburu-balyuhan sa pagcapot san liderato san pulitika, nano daw con sa 2007 elections, si Elio an magcandidato para mayor. Pamati co, magana si Elio. Porbaran ta baya?

            Salamat hamoc.
