Is Catholicism the reason why the Philippines is poor?

I cannot understand why people pointed the Catholicism as the cause of poverty in the Philippines. Catholicism does not teach people to steal, on the contrary, it teaches to love your fellow as you love yourself. Had the Filipinos followed this commandment, Philippines might be one of the rich nations on Earth. The U.S. became great because of their Christian belief. I came across a blogger who told that it’s because priests are corrupt and have secret affairs with women. If a priest has an affair with a girl, is this the deed of the Catholic Church? does the Church teach their priests to be immoral? If a priest has an immoral affair, does he steal the money of the nation? How many government positions that the Catholic leaders hold?  The affairs of the Church has nothing to do with Government.

The main cause is corruption. The Philippines has been in poverty because of the massive corruption in her government. Most of her politicians if not all are corrupt. They love money more than their neighbors. They are Christians in names but not in their hearts, they just worship Jesus Christ on their lips. Marcos had stolen 5 to 10 Billion dollars from the country that bankrupted her in 1983.   

The secondary cause is the calamities that strike the country annually. Many lives and Millions or even Billion of pesos are lost per year.

The third reason is the ignorant voters. Most Filipino voters are clueless enough to keep voting politicians disregarding their bad records. Some are loyalists who are ready to fight against their family and friends just to defend their political idol, even if this politician is proven corrupt and murderer. Some voters are for money alone, any candidate who can give them larger price during election, they will vote for him/her. 

The fourth reason that holds the Philippines from growing is the ever-existing war in Mindanao, Muslim extremists keep insisting their sovereignty. To tell you, their god Allah doesn’t like non-Muslims esp. Christians and Jews. If a Muslim becomes devoted to his religion, he will end up killing non-Muslims and Hypocrites. Muslims who refuse to go Jihad or to fight in the cause of Allah are called Hypocrites. The Malaysian government (Muslim country) trained and financed the activity of these rebels as admitted by Nur Misuari, the founder of MNLF. 

Another cause that impedes the Philippine economy from growing is China. This country founded communism and supported the communist party in the Philippines before. The CPP-NPA rebels have been warring against the Philippine government for a long time. The massive human right abuse by the government of Ferdinand Marcos Sr. also contributed the growth of rebellion. The decades war between the Philippines and the separatist has been causing serious instability in the country that affects businesses and tourism. From China comes the shabu manufacturers that makes the Philippines a shabu market. Of course the activity of this drug syndicates cannot progress without the help of some officials in the country. Many of the politicians attracted to the fat bribes offered by China. Many of the law enforcers just seize shabu for money. If a Chinese druglord is willing to pay a large sum, the officials just let the drug dealer and his shabu skipped. Just like what happened recently, where Billions of pesos worth of shabu slipped past the Bureau of Custom twice in a row. President Duterte instead of penalizing the heads of the Bureau of Custom, he just transferred them to another government positions. Government Officials in the Philippines are not afraid to commit corruption because they are backed by the president or other high official. And if they get imprisoned, they comfortably live under house arrest. And most of these convicted politicians will be pardoned and released by the next president that they supported during election. China also keeps harassing the Filipinos, depriving them to  cultivate the oil-rich area in the West Philippine Sea even if it is well within their Exclusive Economic Zone. Chinese coastguards keep chasing the Filipino fishermen and drive them out from their own fishing ground, allowing their fishermen to monopolize the area. Today, Filipinos are now importing fishes from China which are caught from their own fishing territory. 

ISLAM DISCRIMINATES WOMEN

Warning to the WOMEN who plan to marry Muslim men or convert to Islam!

Women are like domestic animals in Islam that can annul prayer. You only exist as sexual comfort for men. Allah needs to wrap your bodies totally except the eyes because your bodies can cause men to sin. Allah made your minds deficient in intelligence which are only half to men’s intelligence. Because of your deficient in intelligence, the weight of your witness at the court is only half to the witness of men. Because of your lack of intelligence, Allah will send the majority of you to hell to make you fuels of the blazing fire there. Allah and his prophet commanded your husband to beat or imprison you if you fail to obey him. Your husband can marry another woman even without your consent, knowledge, and complaint. The only consolation you can get after his marriage to another woman is that your husband will just smile at you. Your husband can divorce you anytime he wants whether you like it or not. All of these things I have mentioned are sanctioned by Allah, the most merciful god of Muslims.

1. Women are Like Domestic Animals & Made Only for Sexual comfort 

[Tabari IX:113] Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.

2. Women should be wrapped Completely Excluding the Eyes in order to Protect Men from sinning 

[Sahih al-Bukhari 6240] Narrated `Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Messenger “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, “I have recognized you, O Sauda!” He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes)

3. Donkey, Dog, & Woman alike Can Annul a Prayer

[Sahih al-Bukhari 511] Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away. for I disliked to face him.”

COMMENT: Even Aisha had detected the stupidity of her husband’s teaching by telling, “you have made us (women) dogs”, and she disliked Muhammad for teaching so.

4. Women are Deficient in Intelligence & One Man Witness is Equal to Two Women Witnesses

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, number 301]

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Once Allah’s Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o ‘Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”

COMMENT: Muhammad demoralized women by telling them they are inferior to men. He even equalized woman with animal (dog or donkey) in nature. Most Muslim women are thinking that they are inferior to men, that they should be subjected to the rule of their father or husband. Today, there are a lot of women working in technological companies, equally paid as men, disproving Muhammad’s teaching that they are inferior to men in intelligence.

5. A Woman is Crooked Since Creation

[Bukhari, Beginning of Creation 2:251] Woman was created from the rib so she will always remain crooked. Leave her crooked

COMMENT: Who is more crooked, a Muslim woman whom it is not her choice to be a woman or Muhammad who exploited her sexually under the guise of God’s word?

6. Bad Luck Existed in a Wife

[Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:61] The Prophet said, “Bad luck, misfortune and doom can exist in a wife, a home and a horse”.

7. Women Are The Suffering For Men

[Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:97] “After my time, the greatest suffering for men will be women”.

8. Majority Of Women Are The Fuel Of Hell  

[Sunan an-Nasa’i 1575] It was narrated that Jabir said: “. . . Then he moved away and went to the women, and Bilal was with him. He commanded them to fear Allah (SWT) and exhorted them and reminded them. He praised and glorified Allah, then he urged them to obey Allah, then he said: ‘Give charity, for most of you are the fuel of Hell.’ A lowly woman with dark cheeks said: ‘Why, O Messenger of Allah?’ He said: ‘You complain a great deal and are ungrateful to your husbands.’ They started taking off their necklaces, earrings and rings, throwing them into Bilal’s garment, giving them in charity.”

[Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543] “I saw that most of those entering the gate of hellfire were women”

COMMENT: In Islam, woman is not only deficient in intelligence and comparable to animal, but also she is evil. 

9. Allah’s Revelations Are Not For Women 

[Jami` at-Tirmidh Vol. 5, Book 44, Hadith 3211] Narrated Umm ‘Umarah Al-Ansariyyah: that she came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said: “I do not see but that everything is for the men, and I do not see anything being mentioned for the women. 

10.  Women Should Be Disciplined By Beating And Imprisonment  

WOMEN DISCRIMINATION (2)

a.) Allah command husbands to beat and imprison their arrogant wives who are like domestic animals 

[Koran 4:34] Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.  

[Koran 38:44] “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…”  Allah telling Job to beat his wife (Tafsir). 

COMMENT: Muhammad is lying. In the Bible God never told Job to beat his wife, contrarily, God instructed husbands to love their wives [Ephesians 5:25-28]. 

[Tabari IX:113] Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.

b.) Muhammad beat his favorite wife aisha

[Sahih Muslim Book 4, Number 2127] Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.” 

c.) Aisha confronted muhammad for the abuse suffered by the muslim women 

[Sahih al-Bukhari 5825] Narrated `Ikrima: Rifa`a divorced his wife whereupon `AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. `Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Messenger came, `Aisha said, “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!” . . . 

d.) Muhammad commanded his follower to beat his slave girl severely 

[Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4458 & Muslim hadiths Book 17, No. 4224]

Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:  A slave-girl belonging to the house of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) committed fornication. He (the Prophet) said: Rush up, Ali, and inflict the prescribed punishment on her. I then hurried up, and saw that blood was flowing from her, and did not stop. So I came to him and he said: Have you finished inflicting (punishment on her)? I said: I went to her while her blood was flowing. He said: Leave her alone till her bleeding stops; then inflict the prescribed punishment on her. And inflict the prescribed punishment on those whom your right hands possess (i.e. slaves). 

COMMENT: Women are so oppressed in Islam, if they committed fornication, they should be punished severely and even to death by stoning, crucifixion, etc. On the other hand, if Muslim men committed fornication, they are free from blame. This judgment is brutal and unfair, and take note, this is mandated by Allah, the supposed most merciful and off-forgiving god. Islam is so vague in its teachings, what its right hand is telling is not what its left hand is doing. In contrast, Jesus though sinless, He did not condemn a prostitute [John 8:6-10]. God does not allow us to judge our sinful fellow because we are all sinners. All of us will undergo judgement, only God has the power to judge. Not one of us can redeem ourselves from sinful world, we cannot be saved by our own righteousness contrary to Islamic teaching. All humans are sinful except the holy one sent from above, hence no one can meet God’s standard. Salvation could be provided by God alone, that’s why we need to accept the redemption provided by Jesus Christ (the only sinless man on Earth) in order to be saved. 

e.) Muhammad allowed his wives to be beaten by his believers and laughed at it 

[Muslim Book 9, No 3506] 

Then came ‘Umar and he sought permission and it was granted to him, and he found Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) sitting sad and silent with his wives around him. He (Hadrat ‘Umar) said: I would say something which would make the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) laugh, so he said: Messenger of Allah, I wish you had seen (the treatment meted out to) the daughter of Khadija when you asked me some money, and I got up and slapped her on her neck. Allah’s Messenger (mav peace be upon him) laughed and said: They are around me as you see, asking for extra money. Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) then got up went to ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) and slapped her on the neck, and ‘Umar stood up before Hafsa and slapped her saying: You ask Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) which he does not possess. They said: By Allah, we do not ask Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) for anything he does not possess. Then he withdrew from them for a month or for twenty-nine days. Then this verse was revealed to him:” Prophet: Say to thy wives. . . . for a mighty reward” (33. 28). . 

f.) The husband is not obligated to tell his wife the reason why he beat her 

[Book 11, Number 2142: Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab] The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife. 

COMMENT: Allah not only allows Muslim husbands to beat their wives, but also the wives have no right to complain. This is an absolute abuse of woman, where is the righteousness and mercy of Allah in this regard?
