Ms. Katrina H. represents our today’s confused or embattled generation. In a telenovela, Gagambino with Dennis Trillo, she was one of the heroines who battled the forces of evil (Ms. Jean Garcia and one Harold) so she and others can save mankind from extinction, but in another dimension, you saw her modeling see-through lingerie and skimpy bikinis on the ramp or posed in still lurid and alluring photos of flesh.
In the first, she serves as role model for our young people to do what is good and resist everything evil yet in another dimension you saw her sensual curvatures and contours sufficient to soak up one’s nocturnal fantasies. Your vision of her in this dimension could lead you to an honest perception that if she advertises that much, she could sell as much. Did she sell this time around? Or it was purely for fun?
The young generation is lost on Katrina H. She is a heroine who fights evil but she could be the epitome of the very same forces that she was battling against.
The Church was right all along in its position that those pills and other contraception which the government had tried to sell to the public to address population problem could backfire and lead people astray towards promiscuity. Ms. Katrina H and Mr. Kho, and others could engage in this voyeuristic activity in a one-nightstand unfettered by the responsibility that traditional couple would assume when they engaged in this kind of intimacy. That they engaged in it for fun, is entirely different from those who engaged in it as an expression of the oneness of their souls. They look at is as the primeval expression of basal instinct for flesh and sex, while ideally, people should only engage in it because they are in love with each other. This is the Church’s line which unfortunately, many have considered this to be primeval too.
But Mr. Kho, who presumably had taped this lustful encounter with Ms. Katrina H. and leaked it to the media thereafter, should have taken clinical psychology first before cosmetic medicine so he could have his head examined before he is even allowed examine another person’s anatomy to perfect it. And from where I sit, Mr. Kho has the propensity of examining a person’s anatomy which is already perfect and flawless and therefore does not need his expert intervention. Apparently, the intervention was of different dimension using a probing scalpel that was never sanctioned before by the medical board. He is embroiled now in a “medical malpractice” .
All these talks about sanctions and passage of a cyber-law to address privacy violation and pornography in the internet while laudable and appropriate, had missed one larger issue: We cannot legislate an acceptable standard of morality in our populace. We have to instill that morality and virtues to our children direct from our homes and ask our children to emulate persons whom they know personally to be upright and virtuous and not to emulate those movie personalities whose “virtues” were packaged commercially by media using flesh and skin as the basic framework.
From my standpoint, we are losing our young generation because we have lost God in our own generation.
