What is the Rest of the Story?

Given these actual headlines, the task is to guess the associated story:

Church to fight Con-ass

Just based on the sound of it, the Church should be far from alone in this battle. After all, who could be wanting some more of that nasty Con-ass?

Davide grilled by Jinggoy: Tatad and judge dismissed for consulting dwarves.

Hard to tell how that could be any worse than emulating NBA stars.

Church to fight Con-ass

Could it be related to this story?

A horse has given birth to a donkey in a scientific experiment that could point the way to saving rare breeds and endangered species.

It was implanted in the standard bred mare's womb as an embryo and delivered three weeks ago at Monash University, Australia.

"We had to trick the mare into thinking it was her own pregnancy," said Angus McKinnon...


Perhaps the Welsh warbler Charlotte has strongly objected to the equine fraud?

Brit:

Excellent try, but no.

In the Phillipines, there is a move to change the governing charter through the Constituent Assembly, which, I gather, is something like the US Congress, but with rather less dignity.

Unless it is due confusion over the unfortunate choice of shorthanding, the Church's opposition is mystifying.

As for the other story, despite having read it, the only thing I took on board was that the headline was by far the most sensible part of the whole piece.

From all this I gather that there are reasons the Philipinnes are not counted among the Asian tigers.
