Now in the year 300 the Catholic church made a few more additions. They added the liberty to pray for the dead and they gave them the sign of the cross (typical 2x2 anti-catholic B.S.). You will oft times see a Catholic person make the sign of the cross if they get a fright or a scare or even when they start to go down a flight of stairs.
In the Phillipines we lived across the street from a house of prostitution and we saw those women make the sign of the cross whenever they left the house and when they went up the stairs and down the stairs. They were faithful in going to Mass every Sunday.
While prostitution is illegal in the Philippines, the sex industry is prominent with few charges or prosecutions. Therefore a worker does not need much investigation in order to “bach” across the street to a house of prostitution. The high rate of poverty plays a roll in the some 500,000 to 800,000 female prostitutes in the Philippines, many of whom find plenty of business with tourists. See Wikipedia at
