212 Congressmen resisted the pressure given to them by the Iglesia Ni Cristo. They deserve a round of applause. Some of them were being regarded as "heroes of the day" by President Aquino. There were rumors that zero pork barrel will be given to those who will vote NO which is non-sense compared to the brown paper bag with thousands of pesos was given inside the Malacanang to kill an impeachment case against Gloria Arroyo last 2007. Remember when ex-Pampanga Governor Panlilio who exposed the meeting with the Malacanang? The 212 Congressmen are worthy of their valiant stand against the call of Iglesia Ni Cristo to stop the impeachment. Worse is, Iglesia Ni Cristo fully aware that Filipinos will despise them for trying to stop the impeachment case against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez. Still INC counsel former Justice Secretary Serafin Cuevas represented Gutierrez in the House. Politics is thicker than faith. Politics is thicker than justice. Politics is big in Iglesia Ni Cristo. Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo is picking the wrong side of the fence. The Manalo Family is obviously taking the side against the President Noynoy Aquino.
President Noynoy Aquino and the Filipino People
Ombudsman Ma. Merceditas Gutierrez • Iglesia Ni Cristo • ex-President Gloria Arroyo
President Noynoy Aquino wanted Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez OUT.
Ex-President Gloria Arroyo wanted Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez IN.
Iglesia Ni Cristo wanted Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez IN.
This is not the first time that I have heard that Iglesia Ni Cristo is not happy with the Aquino government. Obviously, Iglesia Ni Cristo enjoyed more attention from a president during the Arroyo administration than with the present Aquino administration. Eduardo Manalo (who just inherited the position of Executive Minister from his dad when he died) is still a newbie in political decisions. Iglesia Ni Cristo taking the side of Gloria Arroyo and Merceditas Gutierrez is political suicide for a neophyte Eduardo Manalo. Arroyo and Gutierrez are rotten compared to mass-beloved President Noynoy Aquino. After that Iglesia Ni Cristo failed on their attempt to pressure the Congressmen in the Lower House, there's no guarantee that Iglesia Ni Cristo or INC will not do their trick again on the Senators. The witching power of Iglesia Ni Cristo will soon be again witnessed by the Filipino People. We can expect no more that INC will try again their luck in convincing to stop the ouster of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez from the office. Or perhaps, INC will be more silent on their next move.
ex-President Gloria Arroyo and Iglesia Ni Cristo
If Iglesia Ni Cristo will fail again in preaching the "Save the Ombudsman Gutierrez movement",
what may happen is this...
Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez will be ousted...
A new Ombudsman picked by President Aquino will sit...
Cases will be filed against Gloria Arroyo followers...
Gloria Arroyo will be also filed with numerous cases...
Gloria Arroyo will be imprisoned.
Filipino people will be happy.
Do your best Iglesia Ni Cristo.
Stop the ouster of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez.
Filipino people will even more despise the Iglesia Ni Cristo and the Manalo family.
Embarrass yourselves even more Iglesia Ni Cristo.
You are truly Disgusting.
