Not so Forbidden Questions

Here are few questions that we never really bothered to take time out to answer, maybe because we just don’t have the brains to answer it.

1. What is the tip for?
This really bugs me big time. I eat on a restaurant, they charge me 12% for the service tax and then here is a waiter, still probably waiting for his tip. Isn’t it their obligation to give me good service? It is my right to enjoy fast service and good accommodation. Service tax should be called “tip”.

2. Is Abortion pro life?
I know a lot of you will think I am stupid for asking this but let us all remember that there are two lives at stake here … the baby and the mother-to-be. If a woman got pregnant, the man left him or maybe they are both not financially and emotionally ready to to have a family, do you think it is fair to bring that child to the world when both parents can not take care of him? If a child has the right to live, does it automatically turns off the switch on a woman’s right to choose for her own life? Abortion has always been an issue of morality, when it should have been really about life.

3. Would you eat that cake?
We usually get so squeamish over people who farts, belch and drool but why is it that we don’t feel the same icky feeling over blown candles of a birthday cake? I mean, if the celebrant have bad breath, would you still eat the cake?

4. God’s images? Really?
On the old testament, God clearly said that men should not bow down to idols and images nor serve them. Catholic church says they do not worship the Cross or images or relics instead, they use these physical objects to remind themselves of Christ and his special friends, the saints in heaven. Has anyone seen Christ or these “so-called special friends”? God has an image? Since when? And if it is true that Catholics do not worship these images, then why do we have a Black Nazarene procession and why do we cover them with beautiful flowers and even wipe them with our hankies and hope that they will save us from our miseries?

5. How can something be “new” and “improved”? If it’s new, what was it improving on?

6. Questioning a question. I sometimes hear people say the line ” your question is questionable, or your motive is suspicious. How do you actually be suspicious of other people’s thoughts and even question the content of their questions. So silly.

I would like to thank my dear friend Tonting for giving me an idea of what to post today.
