Bohol and Hayden Kho

Who would not know Hayden Kho by this time? Maybe you have seen his videos on the internet. Our government officials did and there is no reason for you to procrastinate.

I was quite moved by the news that the Bohol provincial government declared Kho as persona non-grata. How come?

I used to define persona non grata as an ungrateful person so he is not welcome anywhere. But Wikipedia defines them only as unwelcome persons. It further states that in non-diplomatic usage, calling someone persona non grata is to say that he or she is ostracized, so as to be figuratively nonexistent.

But why should Bohol come to the point of ostracizing a sinner?

According to a news report from, the provincial government's resolution stated- "We hereby manifest that we detest Mr. Kho's presence and he is not welcome to set foot on Bohol's soil." Uh-oh. That is not so Boholano of them. The lawmakers further stated that they do not want Kho to bring his sexual exploits to the island. Why? Are they sure Kho will evade the limelight in Manila and bring his Haydencam to Bohol and record another sexual encounter? C'mon. Get real.

I am against Kho's taking of videos of his sexcapades and spreading them in the internet (this he deny doing) but being judgmental about him and his wrongdoings is not for us to do. It is like we are saints and he is the only devil in this side of the world. Yeah we are not like him. Yeah we are sinless as anybody else. Yeah Bohol is A PARADISE full of angels and saints. Why let a sinner stain its beautiful beaches and bitches in the guise of cooling off in that God-chosen island?

This is hypocrisy.

The case of Hayden Kho will soon be in court. Why make him the worst person in the world? Why not let that pest out of him defend himself in proper venues?

Samuel Johnson said- Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practise; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others those attempts which he neglects himself.

And while the rest of the world are trying to control the swine flu, others testing their military capacity by trying their missiles, the Philippines is busy watching Hayden Kho's sexual videos and debating on them in the guise of in-aid-of-legislation..

Its funny how these people are quick enough to act on this issue but play blind to other more important concerns.
For all we know, these people have dirty little secrets too.
Shame on these people.

INDEED! There are more pressing issues in Bohol which the provincial government have neglected to do. Reproductive Health issues, for example.

This was a matter for the courts (if someone filed a case against Kho)...not to be used for the grandstanding of some senators...

This is just ridiculous. I posted under my Quiapo photo series pictures of people selling porn movies (sex with children)... and those movies are sold in the open...nobody cares...
