TEAM PATAY vs TEAM BUHAY
The Bacolod Diocese posted a tarpaulin enumerating senators whom they labelled as Team Patay and Team Buhay for supporting or going against the passage of RH Bill into law.
COMELEC Chair Sixto Brillantes ordered the diocese to take down the poster as it violates election rules.
Bishop Navarra protested. He said ONLY VATICAN has the authority to order him to remove the posters.
Supreme court issued a TRO on the take down order, favoring Bishop Navarra. COMELEC should answer the petition in 10 days.

Risa Hontiveros cries foul, bullying after learning that several diocese in Bacolod are setting up additional “team patay” posters.
To which, Mitos Magsaysay reacted “ang lakas ng loob kalabanin ang Catholic Church tapos ngayong nasa Team Patay, iiyak-iyak.” –(this tweet was deleted so I haven’t screen captured it. But I still remember its contents.)
A “nasty text” circulating yesterday, allegedly from Buklod ng Malayang Pilipino identified 5 priests from the dioceses of Bacolod, who sired a child.
Navarra quickly said that such act is unchristian.
To which the angry citizen commented “how very hypocritical. If bishop do it to others it is simply an “issue” but if it is done to the bishops it is an “attack.” – “Blue Cheese (source http://www.watchmendaily.com/news/team-tatay-5-roman-catholic-priests-tagged-as-fathers-lets-not-divert-the-issue-pasquin-appeals/)
Like @ceso, what makes me worry is if the names of these priests be brought out, what about the innocent children who will be dragged to this issue.
