Retired archbishop slams new Facebook app ‘Bang with Friends’



Retired Lingayen Archbishop Oscar Cruz

MANILA, Philippines – Retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz condemned Tuesday a new application on Facebook called Bang with Friends, saying it will promote immorality.

A Radyo Inquirer 990AM report said Cruz also expressed his dismay that social media is becoming a tool to harm the moral values of the people, especially the youth.

“Bang with Friends” is an application that allows Facebook users find their sexual partners.

According to The Drum.com, this “new application seeks to pair up sexually attracted friends by allowing users to list who they would sleep with.”

Its three unnamed creators claimed that the new application aims to enrich the dating site like Match.com.

The creators also boasted that the application will make it easier for users to know if others are interested in them.

The application draws an average of five users per minute and about 30,000 have downloaded the application. John Daryl Dimalanta

       Pointless. Assuming your assumption is true, it will just make the matter worse without RH Bill.  Kapag putukan na at di ka tinuruan imiwas, ikaw ang kawawa.

    Having sex is one of the most natural thing in the world. Kneeling on the altar and counting the rosary beads are not.

    Ito namang si Bishop Cruz, masyadong high blood.

    Likas talaga sa ating mga tao ang libog. Halos lahat naman ng warm-blooded mammals malibog.

    Sabi nga, if you can’t beat them, bang them.
