The spin, again

News feature entitled "3 Miss Mandaue winners favor RH bill passage" explains the reasons for the three ladies' support for the RH Bill proposed in the Philippine Congress in so many paragraphs.  

A single line was attributed to the winner's rejection of the RH Bill:  On the other hand, crowned Miss Mandaue Donna Cardino opposed the RH bill because it is against the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Then again, one line says it all, and the same one line to prove her truly worthy of the prize.

Happy Mother's Day!

from Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty: “The most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral -- a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body.... The angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God's creative miracle to bring new saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other human creature. God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.... What on God's earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother.”
