By now I’m sure we’ve all heard about the craptastic arguments put forth by former Senator Francisco “Kit” Tatad against the RH Law, before 15 Justices of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court Justices chose not to propound questions to Tatad, thus sparing the entire country of a sea of blood, springing forth from a collective nosebleed from trying to figure out what the hell Tatad was saying.
As put aptly by Capt. Jean-Luc Picard of the starship Enterprise:
A few memes struggled to comprehend the logic (or lack thereof):
Not even superheroes were spared:
There was a bit of rage:
And a bit of ambivalence:
Some reacted with pointed sarcasm:
And others just went straight to the point:
Like some, we can only reminisce about the good ol’ days:
In the meantime, we prepare for the days ahead:
Of course, it’s all fun and games until we realize that what we’re up against isn’t just an ideology that can be counteracted, or an intellectual framework that can be criticized or picked apart, or a religious fervor that can be calmed by cooler heads.
We’re dealing with irrational ignorance, on such a scale that it believes itself to be a valid platform of advocacy.
Thus far, it seems that the Supreme Court isn’t biting. Nevertheless, on last count there were 10 justices who voted to impose a Status Quo Ante Order on the RH Law and who voted to give the anti-RH petitions due course. We hope that those ten have reconsidered their position after the debacle last July 9.
With another round of oral arguments from the anti side on the 23rd, it remains to be seen if the anti-RH can put forward any legally viable argument. Should the anti side remain hopeful?
