GMA Primetime teleserye “My Husband’s Lover,” the first local television show to heavily tackle homosexuality, is under the scrutiny of the Catholic Church, reports Radyo Veritas.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines Episcopal Commission on Youth (CBCP-ECY) has urged television networks to be sensitive to themes being tackled in their programs.

CBCP-ECY executive secretary Fr. Kunegundo Gargantaang said TV producers and writers must study themes presented in their shows and make sure they are based on moral standards.

He said guidelines regarding themes followed by TV networks are important, especially for television shows with controversial content. Gargantaang urged networks to consider how the shows impact young viewers’ consciousness.

Malaking pag-aaral ang dapat na gawin sa mga bagong teleserye tulad ng “My Husband’s Lover” na sana maisa-alang-alang na nasa isang bansa tayo na mayroong kultura na pinapahalagahan ang usaping moral o mga bagay na saklaw ng moralidad.Ito ang dapat na isaalang-alang ng mga gumagawa ng teleserye,” he told Radyo Veritas.

Palace: MTRCB to handle any complaint

In reaction to Gargantaang’s statement, Malacañang asked parents to report any complaints regarding the controversial show to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB), which has reassured the public that it will immediately act on them.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said Sunday: “Alam niyo po, madali — mabilis pong gumalaw ang MTRCB lalo po ’pag nakaka-receive po sila ng mga complaints from parents. So ini-encourage na lang po natin ’yung mga magulang, kapag meron po kayong nakita na sa inyong pakiramdam ay hindi po angkop doon sa binigay na rating ay i-report po natin agad sa MTRCB.”

(MTRCB responds quickly especially regarding complaints made by parents. We encourage parents to immediately report any content they may deem inappropriate to the given rating.)

Before the show’s pilot episode early in June, the MTRCB approved the teleserye without any revisions or cuts but gave it a Strong Parental Guidance (SPG) rating. Journal reports the pilot episode was reviewed and applauded by 3 MTRCB officials.

“My Husband’s Lover” by Suzette Doctolero and director Dominic Zapata stars Dennis Trillo, Tom Rodriguez, and Carla Abellana. The plot centers on a secret homosexual love affair between Trillo and Rodriguez, who is a married man.

I Just Started a Gratitude Journal

January 23, 2013 Leave a comment

This happened over a week ago.  I was staying at my aunt’s for the weekend and guess what?  Both the Internet and cable were down!  I called AT&T and asked if they could fix it as soon as possible.  You could just imagine how hard it was… no Internet or TV for the weekend!  You should have seen my aunt’s face (hehehe!) when she found out that the tech can’t make it til Sunday.  Which means no TFC for a couple of days.  Good thing we’re scheduled to leave for Harrah’s San Diego the next morning.

So what to do when there’s nothing else to do?  I guess the next best thing to do is to run or read a book or a magazine.  And there I was, reading an old O Magazine.  While browsing through the pages an article about starting a Gratitude Journal got my attention.  Oprah goes on by saying that writing at least 5 things that you’re grateful for each day can help you appreciate the small things and life in general.  That makes sense to me!  I must admit, the past couple of months I’ve been so busy and I feel like I haven’t been thankful of the small things.  They just don’t have the same effect as they used to.

Last January 12, after reading the article I decided to start my Gratitude Journal… and I’ve done it everyday since then.  It’s nice to read my entries when I’m free or when I just want to go back and think of the small things that made me happy.  I suggest you start making one too. 🙂
