In the Carlos Celdran case, Yellowtards find out that the Catholic Church is a snake that could bite its handler


When you charm a snake make sure you don't turn your back to it. That's what happened to the Yellowtards. In supporting Carlos Celdran's "Damaso" stunt, they foolishly turned their back towards the beast they had gotten in bed with.

The Roman Catholic Church, after all, makes friends only with those who toe the line. The "prayerful" branding of the Yellowtards was consistent with this line. Not Celdran's stunt, however. Even the nuns that pad the street rallies Yellowtards are famous for wouldn't have approved of a social media caricature disrupting a religious event.

This is the whole trouble with using personalities as currency for one's advocacies, politics, and ideologies. Personalities are not stable. Principles usually are. Unfortunately Filipinos find using the latter as bases for their convictions as too difficult. Too much brain is needed for that.
