Reproductive health bills ‘morally unacceptable,’ says CBCP


MANILA, July 21, 2008–The reproductive health bills pending in Congress are “morally unacceptable,” said the influential Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) today.

Speaking at a press conference, Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma, former vice-president of CBCP, said that the ongoing tussle between the Catholic Church and some lawmakers on the reproductive health bills could be resolved with “dialogue.”

Ledesma said Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel Jr. and Representative Rufus Rodriguez, both of Cagayan de Oro, support the church stand.

However, Ledesma said, the two lawmakers’ position is based on “moral grounds” and not political grounds.

The issue of reproductive health bills have to be understood on a “moral ground,” than “political ground” or “partisan approach,” Ledesma added.

The proposed reproductive health bills allegedly promote artificial population control methods including abortion.

According to Catholic Church, only natural family planning is morally justified.

The prelate also stressed that church leaders continue to advocate with local lawmakers for the scrapping of the reproductive health bills at the district or diocesan level.

Recently, Congressman Mark Llandro Mendoza of the fourth district of Batangas withdrew his support for the reproductive health measure, in which he was one of the signatories.

Mendoza did it as an outcome of his “change of heart.” (Santosh Digal)(CBCPNews)

    Congressman Rufus Rodriguez is seeking re-election in his district of CDO, Cagayan de Oro, Philippines and a situation has been brought to our attention that we want to inform him of.

    Rufus Rodriguez owns a rental property in CDO that he rents out to a American expatriot of questionable agendas, records and past. I highly doubt Mr. Rodriguez knows of the kind of people his house is harboring so have decided to inform both him and the internet community in hopes of enlightening the situation during this campaigning period.

    The American national currently residing in the house is one Gordon Elletson who goes by Gordy and posts on many internet forums using the name TexKano. Gordon Elletson is of a deffective mental state and is a admitted child abuser and basher of the Filipino populace. Please see link below of how Gordy Elletson , using his TexKano nic, admitted to hitting Xavier Madlangbayan with a cane and then proceeding to call the boys grandfather, Dr. Severino Madlangbayan, (who is seeking a city council seat in Iligan City) a banana eating monkey. Is this kind of elitest American truly the sort of expatriot that a elected Congressman wants to be connected to? Well Gordon Elletson seems to think the congressman loves him and will washover any mess he gets himself into. I find it hard to believe a elected congressman will forsake his constituents , who elected him, in a effort to protect a abusive foreign national.

    The second expatriot, now deceased, is one Randall Chester Goings who goes by Bubba and posted on net under nic Bubbabobbaker. This fellow had a lengthy criminal record which included multiple drug charges. Randall Goings was brought to the Philippines by Gordon Elletson where he lived , together with Gordy, in the proprty owned by Congressman Rufus Rodriguez of CDO, Cagayan de Oro. This property is located on 69 bong bongon street CDO and even before Randall Goings moved to such property he was allready posting perverted things all over the internet. One example of his perversions took place on a internet dating site where he searched for a 4′ tall bi-sexual and stated in his ad “the smaller you are the more I will love you”. Evan smaller than 4′? Yikes, Was he looking for a dwarf or a underaged girl?

    Anyway, I hope this message reaches Congressman Rodriguez and he can see below link for proofs regarding the accutations of the kind of expatriot he is harboring and who states the Congressman is protecting him. I feel the congressman has the right to know the facts in below link.

    Gordon never went to Vietnam nor did he every earn one of those “green beenies” and never did black-op missions that he lies about having obtained and done. Truth is Gordon Elletson never earned a green beret , never did black-ops and spent the majority of his uneventful military career on a nice safe military base in Germany which is widely as a medical base. In short he is one those idiots who sits around on bar stools across Texas and speaks of his non-eventful military career by trying to make himself sound “KEWL” by fabricating a career in his mind which never existed in reality. Dili warrior pero tambok nga bayot si Gordon Elletson, hehehe

    There is nothing wrong with serving in peace time and own a safe base in Germany , or anyplace else, but to fabricate a military career is a insult to those who truly risked life and limb in defense of American freedoms. One such person is Bradley Hughes and it is the opinion of many people that Gordon Elletson bashed Bradley and his wife publicly on his now defunct website because he was jealous with regards to Bradley’s military service during Vietnam.

    Gordon Elletson claims to have PTSD do to combat experiences but how can that be as he never saw any serrious combat like that which Bradley Hughes fought gallantly in. Now for the truth. Gordon Elletson was molested as a child and has admitted this on public forum. This in all probability is the cause of his PTSD as well as his abuse of drugs, alcohol, women and children. Many studies have shown that victims of child abusers grow often into predators who abuse children. It is like a dog, if you beat dog etc he will become aggressive. Could this sexual abuse in Gordon’s past be the cause of why he grew into a abuser? Also after being used sexually by a man he may have doubted his manhood. This may be the cause of Gordy Elletson going around trying to feel like a real man by hitting women and small children.

    The bad thing is unlike the dog in paragraph above Gordon ” TexKano ” Elletson rationalizes his behavior by using his various mental illnesses as a defense so he doesn’t have to face fault of his actions. In many ways though the dog has more sense than Gordon Elletson as the dog knows not to shit where it sleeps , sadly Gordy Elletson does not. To see evidence of this one needs to only read his own biography and how he abused his ex-wives by hitting them then moved to the Philippines where he brutally abused Xavier Madlangbayan by hitting him with a cane in the middle of a US embassy outreach function held at Pryce Plaza hotel in CDO , Cagayan de Oro, Philippines.

    Gordon is mentally ill though and must stay highly medicated in order to function in society, he has admitted this on a site. But even more evidence is how he called his American wives bitches and stuff because they left his abusive ass. Is he so stupid to not see they did not like to be abused nor should any person be subjected to abuse. He then in Philippines carried on this bullshit attitude and after beating Xavier Madlangbayan went home and bragged about it openly on the Internet. He then called Dr. Severino Madlangbayan , a highly respected member of the Iligan community, a banana eating monkey for getting angry about having his small grandson beaten in a public environment.

    Gordon though in his mentally deranged state justifies these inexcusable actions just as he justified putting Bradley Hughes , Jerry Olson and others on his nonsensical wall of same.

    It is my belief that Gordon Elletson poses a threat to the community and should either leave on his own or face deportation. In fact his mental illness alone is enough to block his immigration into Philippines as one of stipulations of the RA13 is that person must not suffer from serious mental illness, especially those which cause them to be violent in public.

    The real victim in this crime is Xavier Madlangbayan as he suffered emotional trauma due to abuse at the hands of Gordon Elletson. In fact Xaviers mother, Margie Madlangbayan, stated on public forum that Xavier stated several times on the way to court “”mommy,is Gordon going to be there?what if he hits me again? To which she replied “Xavier,he will pay for what he did.He will never put his hands on you again,over my dead body.” I find her comment very great as it would be the comment of any parent in the situation as parental instincts cross all cultural lines and all of us who are parents would also fight to the end of the world in protection of our children.

    They say it takes a village to raise a child so let us join together and make our voices heard so we can bring this fatass Gordon Elletson to justice and insure that no other Filipino children face abuse at the hands of this violent foreign monster who not only abuses children but is also arrogant (or crazy) enough to brag online about his disgusting actions.

    A special page has been made on the SEXPAT BLOG as a tribute to Bradley Hughes who resides in Cagayan De Oro Philippines.

    Bradley Hughes has gone far and beyond the call of duty in exposing Gordon Elletson, Michael Mountstephen ( Spooks whorehouse owner )and etc.

    Bradley Hughes even came up with the brilliant idea of linking Congressman Rufus Rodriguez , of 2cd District CDO , to the SEXPATS that his home is harboring.

    Bradley Hughes has been a extreme help to the advocacy and for his cooperation and good deeds the Sexpat blog owner has decided to dedicate a entire page to the bravery which defines Bradley Hughes .

    As if the situation with Gordon Elletson and Rufus Rodriguez wasn’t enough we now have a Cagayan de Oro based Hubo-Hubo bar owner (a pimp) by the name of Michael Mountstephen stating in no uncertain terms that he has political protection in Cagayan de Oro.

    I wonder what the price of impunity is in CDO? Who knows but this Hubo-Hubo bar owner states its cheaper than in Cebu and goes on to state the Mayor and a News Paper editor are amongst his protectors.

    Please see below link for direct quotes regarding the statements this expatriate is making.

    Alang Sa Kasayuran Sa Tanan,

    Niabot sa akong panimoot nga kadaghanan sa mga dumodoong sa Cagayan de Oro, nagakinabuhi nga murag sila dili mga dayo. Ingon sa mga dumodoong, ang mga opesyal daw ang naggahin kanila ug tungod para magpuyo nga hapsay sa Cagayan de Oro. Akong ginalauman nga ang mga pulong nga gibuhian sa mga dayo, dili tinood, kay kung mao man, masuko gayud ako sa mga nidaog nga opisyal sa pag-atiman nila niining mga dumodoong. Tinood kaha ang ilang gipanayon? Kung dili man kini tinood, akong ginahangyo sa mga opisyal sa lugar nga pangitaon ug pahawaon kining mga tawhanan sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro. Kung walay kalihokan nga mahitabo sukwahi sa mga dumodoong, kini nagpamatood lang nga ginapaburan sa mga taong naa sa posisyon ang ilang mga kalihukan.

    Ang unang dumodoong nga gikan sa Amerika ginganlan ug Gordon B. Elletson. Si Gordon Elletson nag-angkon nga siya nagapang-abuso ug mga dalaga ug nag-angkon nga siya naay sakit sa paghunahuna. Dilikado kaayo kini nga tao sa mga nagapuyo sa Cagayan de Oro. Niaging tuig, si Gordon Elletson ang niatake sa isa ka batang lalaki nga ginganlan ug Xavier Madlangbayan sa outreach program sa US Embassy didto sa Pryce Plaza Hotel, cagayan de Oro. Tungod niini, gikasuhan si Gordo sa pag-abusar, apan kini wala makapungong sa iyang pag-gawas ug pag-uli, apil pa ang pagpakalat mahitungod sa iyang trabaho kadungan sa pagtawag sa lolo sa bata nga si Dr. Severino Madlangbayan ug unggoy nga gakaon ug saging. Gidimanda sa pamilya ni Madkangbayan ang dayo apan wala sila makapakita ug ebidensiya. Sa akong nahibaloan, nagapangita ang doktor ug paagi para maabrihan pag usab ang kaso. Wala pa nakuntinto si Gordon elletson, iyang gipakalat ang mga hulagway sa mga batang babae nga nakasuot lamang ug bra, uban pa ang mahitungod sa iyang pagkaligo kauban ang mga batang babae ug ginabayaran kini niya matag adlaw. Makalagot kaayo kini nga balita labi pa kay sa ginaingon ni Gordon nga gina-proteksiyonan siya ni Congressman Rufus Rodriguez gikan sa ikaduhang distrito sa Cagayan de Oro.

    Ang ikaduha nga dumodoong gikan sa Bretanya nga ginganlan ug Michael Mountstephen. Iyang gihugawan ang maayong pangalan sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dumodoong nanag-iya ug isa ka kasa nga ang pangita mao ang pagpamaligya sa mga batang babae sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dautang dumodoong nabuhi sa iyang pag-abusar sa mga babae ug kini iyang giangkon sa mga pag-tipon tipon sa internet. Gawas sa pag-gamit sa mga batang babae para maka kuwarta, gigamit pud niya ang Department of Tourism sa Pilipinas para mabaligya ang ilang mga serbisyo sa http://www.spooks.com. Gisulatan namo ang direktor sa DOT 10 pimaagi sa e-mail nga nagkanayon mahitungod sa mao nga kasa nga dili rehistrado sa DOT 10 ug bisan kanus-a dili mahitabo nga marehistro kini. Apan, padayon gihapon sa pagpakalat si Michael Mountdtephen mahitungod sa iyang binuhatan. Ang nakadugang gubot pa niini ang pangsulti ni Michael nga ang mayor sa ciudad ug uban pang naa sa posisyon ang magkauban nga naga suporta kaniya sa Cagayan de Oro City.

    Tinood kaha ang ginakanayon niiining mga dumodoong? Ang gahum ba nga gihatag sa katawhan para mahimutang sa maayo nga posisyon ang ubang pulitiko gigamit lang niya para suportahan ang pagpang-abuso sa mga batan-on, pagsuportan sa mga dautang tao gikan sa gawas sa nasud? Akong ginalaoman nga kini dili tinood ug mao man kini mahimong hamon sa mga naa sa lingkuranan nga mahatagan ug pagtagad. Pinaagi niini, maipakita sa katawhan nga ang mga sama anang butanga dili kinahanglan mahitabo sa ciudad. Kini isa lang ka panawagan ug hinaot nga mahatagan kini ug pagtagad sa labing madali nga panahon para atong makita ang hustisya.

    Para sa dugang pang mga detalye mahitungod niining mga dumodoong, mahimo ninyong makita ang mga ebidensiya nga natigom sa http://sexpatswallofshame.blogspot.com/. Dinhi inyong masaksihan ang kadautan nga among gipangbutyag ug hinaot nga kini mahatagan ug pagtagad.

    Matinud-Anon,

    Steven

    Hey everyone, greetings from Australia. This is a helpful site. I’m wondering if you have any advice about staying out of the friend zone with women? Honestly I’m sick of girls telling me they just want to be friends. Perhaps I’m being too nice?
