Manila, Philippines - I am not inventing stories when I have stressed long enough the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) habit of intervening political affairs here in the Philippines. Learning the Philippine political history will expose the involvement of the Iglesia Ni Cristo cult in the Philippine politics, which is more detrimental than beneficial to the Filipino people. The separation of Church and the State is not being practiced by the INC cult since their survival totally relies on it nowadays. It is very seldom we can hear of that the Iglesia Ni Cristo cult is being discussed in a good light. INC is a political cult group. From bloc-voting during elections, government appointees, judicial issues, passing laws (like the reproductive bill in the congress), the INC party list group and recently, even the Philippine Senate presidency, INC wanted to enforce their presence among the politicians. This gives us a bad taste how INC shows their suspicious motives. Eduardo Manalo is a newbie in Philippine politics since he just inherited the INC leadership from his father who died last year. But the intervention of Eduardo Manalo in Senate presidency is not a simple rookie mistake for the pathetic INC leader. It is a tradition, a survival instinct of the INC cult to try to enforce their political influence to politicians.
Within a short period of just 1 week, 2 Philippine online newspapers reported the apparent involvement of the INC leader Eduardo Manalo in choosing Senate President. This is totally unbecoming for a supposedly religious leader who preaches Christian values. Cult leader like Eduardo Manalo is giving a bad name for "religious" church goers. INC members would always even boast that the INC cult does not let themselves involved in politics, but the evidences shows us otherwise. No wonder why the Filipino people despise the INC cult on their involvement in politics. The INC members also do not show good traits towards fellow men since their basic doctrine is that only INC members will go to heaven. All Catholics and Protestants will go to hell. The move of the INC leader Eduardo Manalo in intervening in Senate Presidency is unacceptable. How come that the Catholic Church leaders are silent and showing no involvement at all while INC is making sure that their presence will be felt even in the senate? Weeks ago, reports also show that INC has endorsed/pushed the government appointment of an INC member to the National Bureau of Investigation or NBI.
I guess that is how Iglesia Ni Cristo usually works, after bloc-voting for politicians, they would endorsed/push for the government appointment of INC members and then influence politicians in different numerous ways. The sad part is, when the wishes of INC did not materialize in politics, INC will make sure that their voice will be heard and will stage a rally to show how serious they are. The classic sample of this is when INC members walk and made a violent protest during the violent EDSA3. INC members even died during the violent confrontation of the protesters with the Philippine police and soldiers. Philippines is a democratic country. It is just a shame how Iglesia Ni Cristo ignorantly or continually violate the rights given to them by the Philippine constitution. Any "decent" church SHOULD NOT INTERVENE in Philippine politics. Eduardo Manalo should not be ignorant about this. Eduardo Manalo should not violate the sacred right that the Philippine constitution has given to all the Filipino people regardless of what religion they believe in. INC cult leader Eduardo Manalo should stay out of politics. Reports say that Eduardo Manalo prefers Manny Villar to be the Senate president instead of Sen. Francis Pangilinan. It is good thing that the veteran Senator Juan Ponce Enrile got the post. Sen. Enrile warned that the involvement of religion is such issue is not good in Philippine politics. We should be warned, alarmed and informed how Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) cult crawls like a snake in the grass. Endorsing politicians involves questions on what are the motives and intentions of the Iglesia Ni Cristo cult. Most of the time, if Iglesia Ni Cristo is involved, this must not be good. I smell fishy. I smell stinky. I see rotten cult in action. Iglesia Ni Cristo is on the move.
