Coming Soon: Revised Edition of Controversial Book on Martial Law, "The Conjugal Dictatorship of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos" by Primitivo Mijares

Since I posted the blog post, Remembering Primitivo Mijares and His Message to Maguindanao, in 2009, the article is still getting good traffic and comments from people asking where they can read and find copies of the book. A member of the Mijares clan reached out to me and shared this good news. One of the most controversial book on Martial Law, The Conjugal Dictatorship of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos is available as a free PDF ebook here (a paperback or printed PDF can be purchased at Amazon). 

The bigger news is that an updated version of the book will be released this September. The new version will still be the original book but will be updated with additional references, citations and new content. Something I will very look forward to. If you want to receive updates or notifications of the revised and updated version of the book every Filipino should know and read, The Conjugal Dictatorship, please express your interest by signing up at

Dear Christians, Don't Celebrate the Murder of 49 Gay People in Orlando

As a Christ-following Christian, I do not celebrate the murder of nearly 50 gay people in Orlando. Instead, I mourned the loss of life and I grieved with their families and friends. It was not a time to blame or speculate but a time to seriously talk to my family and friends on how to love Christianly and live peacefully with people including the LGBT community.

Media and the Backlash Against Internet Pornography Among Young Men

Image by
Finally, a major media publication has acknowledged the harmful nature and effects of pornography. TIME Magazine ran a cover story last April entitled Porn and the Threat to Virility. The writer Belinda Luscombre, followed a growing movement of young men who grew up immersed in internet pornography, only to discover it had damaged their sexuality. Porn has left them incapable of intimate relationships with real women.

The reason some are speaking out against porn, is simple: These mostly non-religious twenty-somethings who’ve been guzzling porn since puberty are realizing that porn has rewired their sexuality, leaving them crippled in real-life relationships.

Fatherhood Lesson from Kung Fu Panda 3: Take Time To Be a Dad Today

Being a dad is a piece of cake – said no dad ever! While being a dad is probably one of the greatest blessings there is, it is no easy task. Being a stay at home dad much of the time allows me to spend a lot of quality time with my kids. Not everyone has that luxury though. Regardless of whether or not you stay at home full time, part time, or you work full time or part time, to be a good dad you simply have to take the time to be with your kids. If you treasure every moment that you spend with your kids, no matter what you're doing, they will cherish that time just as much or more.

When Dads at Play: Let Dad Be Dad!

Moms and Dads interact with our kids in different ways. Like play time. We fathers enjoys making goofy faces and funny noises, throwing the kids up in the air, pretending to be a monster or a super hero.

And while sometimes mom might want to scream or cover her eyes, now there’s affirmation that, as long as kids are happy and enjoying themselves, our goofy teasing and horseplay make for a healthy father-child relationship.

Dr. Kathryn Kerns, a Kent State psychologist, conducted a recent study to assess the interaction of both moms and dads with their children. She found that the “random, sometimes silly play” of dads encourages children to trust their fathers, and can even predict “the quality of a child’s future friendships, social skills and romantic relationships.”

So, there you go, moms, let dad be dad!
