A Special Occasion for the Atheists of Metro Manila

 

In a country where its society is influenced by the Catholic religion, a meet-up which is being attended by non-believers is quite rare and can be considered something special.  In iChill Theater Café which is just a block away from the University of Santo Tomas - the Philippines’ oldest school which is regarded as one of the world’s largest Catholic universities, an atheist organization in Metro Manila, Philippines, began to celebrate an extraordinary occasion on this sunny Saturday afternoon.  

The sixth day of the month of May of the year 2017 was the second anniversary of the inauguration of Atheist Republic Metro Manila Consulate (ARMMC). ARMMC is the Metro Manila chapter of an internationally renowned Atheist Republic. According to their website www.atheistrepublic.com, the Atheist Republic provides opportunities for non-believers around the world to gather with like-minded people, share their views and also provide each other with tools to better express themselves Online and Offline. The organization membership believe that atheists can proudly stand against the unfair judgement that so frequently plagues godless and non-religious people.  

And so, this anniversary meet up strengthened the ARMMC members’ friendship, comradery and connection with each other. And the commemoration of this momentous occasion did not end at iChill Theater Café. The celebration continued up until night at the Tides Grill and Bistro for an evening of memorable party, revelry and merrymaking.  The sixth of May of 2017 was indeed unforgettable for the Metro Manila atheists.

A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it,
   or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away
.

                                                                                                            -Gene Rodenberry.

 

Even as children, we often fantasize about Death. We learn from what we see,
and from what we learn from our parents. Usually, it all ends with religion. The
same they were taught with, and where we land if we were to sin. What they have
learnt, came from their parents, and their parent’s parents. It is all handed out,
generation to generation. All to the young ones. So, our parents are not to blame,
and certainly not the children when they see queers as a part of that ‘sin’. Why?
Why don’t they open up their minds a bit? Widen their knowledge? Oh, oh, I will
tell you W H Y. The reason is so simple yet so complex all the same.

                             F E A R.

Fear of the unknown, fear of a God that will put them to a place full of suffering if
they do not comply with His rules. As a once-Catholic, and a once-Muslim, I have
gone through every teaching the Bible and the Qu’ran have to offer. It is because of
the teachings given by their parents and these beliefs that they have faltered in loving
their own children. Just because of their sexual orientation and or gender identification?
I have witnessed my own friends kicked out by their own homes, by their own parents
because they feel romantically towards the same sex, or have a different gender identification
aside from the one they were assigned to by birth. As one of the Vulcans described God,
If this is your God, he’s not very impressive. He’s got so many psychological problems;
he’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and create faulty
humans and then blames them for His own mistakes. He’s a pretty poor excuse for a supreme
being.
Vulcan, being one of the beings in the well-known science fiction Star Trek.

But this is not about religion. As a secular group, our focus is more on the pressing issues
found within our community and not religious affinities. Today, I will be discussing about
Fear and what it has done to us, to our family, to our parents, and to the entire human race.

What was passed on to our parents, that knowledge, was passed on to us. Etiquette, beliefs,
love of films, books, instruments, fascinating stories that let us go ‘ooohh’ and ‘aahh’ at every
twist and turn of those words, and finally, sermons and lectures that have deeply implanted itself
into the crevices of our hearts and minds. I often remember the lectures of my own father when
it comes to using intellect. He always said to ‘It’s all right to be brash if you have the brains for
it.’ And it’s something that I have taken into my very life, seeing that I don’t have much of the
intellect.  My sister got it all. Lucky bastard.

 

Rounding back to my own topic, it is the fear of the unknown and the EMBEDDING that got
them hating on all these ‘poor homosexuals’. Embedding, where they got used to a certain
routine they no longer wish to change it. They are scared of what happens when something
changes. Well, that goes for fear of the unknown and fear of change. After all, change is
pretty scary. But, as nothing is permanent, change is also inevitable. Constant. Ever turning
in this cycle of life. Change occurs whether we like it or not, and the one thing I know about
Humanity, about us, is that we are NEVER ready. No one is. All we have to do is be prepared.
Be it death, be it change, be it your new house, or your new friends ( well, they seem pretty
suspicious to me, reader. I suggest you pick a new group. That lonely girl seems like a good
bet. ) you must be prepared for the worst.

 

The old generations, our grandma and grandpa, our mothers and fathers, they were taught what
they passed on to us. And honestly? It’s not really their fault they got used to one thing and held
on it so firmly they refused to let go. That idea settled nicely in their head, and taking it away or
just CHANGING it will confuse them more. So, what you have to do, is educate them. Nicely.
Politely. Patiently. The effort itself yields its’ own rewards.

 

I mean, putting this as an example, my own mother CRIED when I told her that I’m a trans male.
She cried, and cried, and I explained and explained. Let her process all the information I’m
feeding her. All she understood at that point was that I’m a lesbian, and I chuckled each time
she did. But in time, she finally got it. She realised that me being born this way wasn’t a choice. I’ve been this way since I started walking. ( I mean c’mon. Compared to my sister’s dolls that
I frequently behead, I always choose the guns and robots and the remote-c o n t r o l l e d
monster cars. Oh yeah, and the green foot soldiers too. And boxing with my cousin.) She can’t
use the proper pronouns with my father around, but it was well worth it. It was like, this
incredibly heavy anchor on my thin chest got lifted and I got more room to breathe. I wasn’t
living a lie anymore. Me mum accepted me for who I am,  ( and for the record, she said she
 was just happy I’m not doing any drugs even if I look like I’m snorting cocaine every Friday
night if I’m not stealing purses. Which I’m not. I just look like one, I promise you. ) and she’s
more open with me, y’know? Like, the other day, she asked me if I was seeing someone. And
 I said no. ( Hey reader, if y’wanna know me, just find me in our facebook group! c; ) And well,
she said she can’t imagine me being with a woman.  Parents, huh?

 

But what if, for example, the child was thrown out of their own home by their own parents?
Well, anger is deeply rooted to sadness. People do bad things when they’re angry. That
doesn’t mean you have to stop loving them. Or stop teaching them. The truth is, they need
more guidance than you. Because you just took them to a whole new world and they have
no tourist. Confused, sad and regretful, it is now your job to educate them. Even if it means
you have to go through several verbal abuse. But if it’s physical or mental, just… don’t. My main
point is that all of this takes time. And for them, well, it takes a huge amount of time for them to
understand. Or perhaps, for others, their parents already knew, and they were simply waiting for
their own child to confess to them. Either way, coming out is something you have to think of way
ahead of time. Plan your pros and cons if you have really strict parents. If they’re pretty lax, well,
be like me and just be spontaneous. Buy them some ice cream, treat ‘em nice that week,
smile at them, tell them you love them no matter what, and well, tell them by the end of
the same week. Or not. It’s on you.
Maybe you could just tell them that hey, at least you’re not into cults or drugs. You’re just
into the same sex or both, y’know? Might work. Might not. Expect a lot of crying mothers and
angry fathers.

 

Take the time, always take the time, to muster enough courage to tell your parents. Even if
it takes twenty, thirty, years? Who cares. Just make sure they’re still alive. Or maybe not.
It’s your call, man. Don’t look at me. I’m just saying, take your time. If anyone pressures
you into coming out, don’t listen to them.

What you have to teach your parents, is that there’s more colours out there than just
pink and blue. There will always be fear, and the reaction to that fear might be more, or less,
but expect harsh words. For the world is a cruel one and therefore, created harsher
creatures made to adapt to such an environment. Do not fight fire with fire. It will only
ignite a bigger explosion than the ones you have started with. Instead, fight harshness
with kindness.
Just because you are kind does not mean you are weak and soft. It means
you have seen the worst in all of the world, yet still remain humane within it all. It takes a
lot to stay such in this kind of world, and THAT is being strong.

All I’m asking, is that you remain civil when explaining. Even if it’s not to your parents.
If they’re insulting you, walk away. At least you’ve got the moral upperhand.


                        Give people a second chance.

They even agree with the anti LGentimeBT snts of the Catholic priests who declaim their biases on their pulpits. The Catholic leaders indeed have an evident and obvious repulsion against LGBTs as shown by the Catholic authorities’ opposition Growing up as a religious Catholic, I saw a lot of gays and lesbians practice their faith by observing them how they continuously attend and support their church.to the legalization of Same Sex Marriage.

Christianity is being taught by the religious authorities as a religion that promotes love and care towards all people in the society …. except the LGBTs. The religion of Christianity came out from the religious doctrine called the bible. So what does the bible say about the LGBTs?

 

Leviticus 20:13

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination, they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

If you show that bible passage above to the Christians, they would tend to invent some excuses to defend their beliefs by claiming that the bible passage is part of the Old Testament and is no longer supported by Jesus. But here are some of the bible quotes that prove that Jesus still supported what the Old Testament bible god commanded.

 

Matthew 5:17-18

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

 

Jesus even says further that he and the Old Testament bible god are one and the same.

 

John 10:30

I and the father are one.

 

Not only that, but there is a New Testament passage that is clearly against homosexuality. In this bible passage, homosexuality is even being compared to murder.

1 Timothy 1:9-11

We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine  that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

 

Therefore it is very clear that the bible is against homosexuality. The anti-LGBT sentiments are even written in the book Homosexuality and the Church released by the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), “Those who commit homosexual acts shall not enter the Kingdom of God”. That quote from the CBCP is a manifestation of pure discrimination against the LGBTs. Christianity therefore is not a good standard for morality in our modern society because of that.

So what is the effect of this stand of the CBCP to its religious flock? The effect is that the Catholic parishioners would tend to blindly support the position of the Catholic Church authorities. They tend to give up their moral compass because of the fear of being punished by a god whose evidence of existence is yet to be proven. But the irony here is not the heterosexual people supporting the anti LGBT point of view of Christianity, but the undiscerning compliance of the religious LGBTs to these irrational commandments of Christianity.

Why are there still LGBTs believing and advocating this very oppressive religion? Why are they allowing themselves to be influenced by this religion to deny their true nature? Why do they try to force themselves in a religion that hates their natural instinct? Now as an atheist, I find that behaviour of the religious LGBTs to be a mystery.

PATAS as an organization will do its best to alleviate the negative influence of any religion towards the LGBTs. So in commemorating the International Day against Homophobia (IDAHO) on May 17, we are reminding everyone that the struggle for human rights equality and fare treatment for the LGBTs is still ongoing. For as long as there are religious organizations that fuel the discrimination against the LGBTs, this endeavour will continue.

Atheists are still too often in the closet, and as this article is dealing with hypothetical thoughts, it's just based on my and my surroundings observation, yet accumulated from several countries I have lived in or around. Coming out as an Atheist is much different than coming out as an LGBT, as LGBT's face the legal situation of the country they live in, and the family and environmental situation in addition. Atheism yet is not really a topic, in many places, of what you are or not. Peoples can be Atheist, but belong to a religious organisation, as they were introduced or brought up that way. Most peoples I have come across belong to that moderate category. They see their religion as a tradition or a social convention, attending christmas or easter masses, managing through Ramadan or celebrating the birthdays of some saints or prophets, but their daily life has not much to do with their confession. The stronger the religious influence in society, the more peoples use religious terms in their daily life, wear religious symbols and attend religious events. Atheism as an alternative, or even “in the face” as the fact of how we were born, because nobody can deny, that knowing a God, or a Jesus or a prophet, is not a part of our DNA or a pre-installed feature of our brain, but something, depending on our geographical location, taught, indoctrinised or forced to believe in topic. And again, the stronger the religious power in a country, the less options a child has to look for alternatives, even may not even think about looking for them. The ultimate change for an individual may be the converting to another religion, but to dislodge a religion and be free of a belief requires a huge step. Atheism can be brought to a human being through a friend, through books or a family member. The chance knowing about it through the media is rare, as the media is often lead by peoples being a member of a religion, and although the press is supposed to be neutral, they still want to earn their living, by selling their topics to the supposed majority interested in certain categories. But we are not even only looking at newspapers or the broadcasted media, but also the internet. Online newspapers are a little bit more open with such topics, but even to mention the Huffington Post for example, looking at the year 2012, on first sight I can just identify roughly 30 articles. That's not much for a full year of publication, even having set up an Atheism category.

 

I myself grew up in a secular environment, and although I was baptized Protestant, I hardly can recall having entered a church. After officially signing out of church, at the age of 18, I found myself in a vaccuum, but at least I was able to resign from the institution, some still far from being a possibility in many countries. I was not a christian, but also not a scientist, as that was the ultimate comment I had ever heard, that not debating a divine, and reasoning for proven results, were reserved for them. Secularism and free thought were issues coming up from time to time, but the word Atheism wasn't. Seven years of being resident in West Africa tought me a simple lesson. Most peoples were labeled as Muslim, and a minority was Christian, excluding one nation, the country of Guinea Bissau, where to my astonishment, around 50% of the peoples managed to remain traditional, thus not being changed to one of the monotheistic religions of the West or the East. The lesson was, that religion was a part of the political systems, so there was hardly a way to escape from it, as religion was dragged through all schools, all political speeches, all organizations and all residents. A fairly large minority lead and kept up this system, making the majority of the peoples follow all requested exercises. The few knowing about Atheism, were the ones who have traveled or were involved in the very rare field of art. Only close friendships often made a change to peoples thoughts. One other thing became clear to me. As being an LGBT was punishable by law, so that was something to deal with underground, Atheism, as not really known, was not illegal, but when rejecting the local beliefs, one could face at least some insulting confrontation or the rejection of a friendship. Something does not have to be illegal by law to be treated the way as if it were.

 

And what is going on in The Philippines? As an LGBT one does not have any legal problems, but that does not mean that families or certain parts of society tolerate it. Similar I can observe the issue of Atheism. Slowly book stores are offering books in the direction of secularism, Atheism and free thought, but obviously a minority of the population has access to those, as most peoples live in the provinces, and even in the city, feeding the stomach is the priority for many till now. Feeding the brain is left to the schools and colleges, but these institutions are near to 100% set up by religious organizations. And although the educational system in The Philippines is of high standard, at the end life is still said to built on religion and it's god. As an outsider, it is mind shaking to see that Christianity is a mandatory subject at all colleges, and I would ask myself how to be able to complete a course, when rejecting to attend that subject. So again, I can conclude that it needs a strong mind to find what Atheism is about, and that oneself is maybe an Atheist without knowing. I can imagine how it is to come out as an Atheist, in front of parents that go to church every week, and siblings that have accepted that way too. The way to individualism and a self sustaining life is still far of a reality in the country, as still many depend on their family community and both way support. So to avoid open isolation, many tend to decide for the inner isolation, staying an Atheist in the closet, maybe more often than LGBT's in the closet.

 

PATAS is therefor a very important step in the 21st century era of the 2nd enlightenment and the arise of Atheism. PATAS can penetrate areas individuals have maybe not dared to enter. A community is of course always stronger than a single person, and community is what religions also live from. The only difference is that they come with claims based on their book, and aim towards wealth and power. PATAS and all other Atheist, Agnostic, and Humanist organizations purely serve the welfare of the peoples through education, enlightenment and facts. A fact today, may no longer be a fact tomorrow, but Atheists don't fear that, as that is how development goes. Nobody should live in fear, being threatened with imaginary consequences and have no chance for a free personal development. As long as there is religion there will be wars based on such, hate crimes based on that and discrimination backed by it.
