Manila, Philippines - Eduardo Manalo is showing tantrums on lack of his expected respect on government appointments under the Noynoy Aquino administration. Under the previous Gloria Arroyo regime, Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) enjoyed a comfortable accommodation. But things are different right now. The Philippines has a new president which is convincingly voted by the Filipino people unlike Gloria Arroyo. Eduardo Manalo is also a new INC leader who inherited the leadership from his father who passed away last year. Eduardo Manalo has still a lot to prove. Inheriting leadership should be proved more than having the same blood of your ancestors. As a leader, you have to display the needed character which it appears that Eduardo Manalo is lacking. The childish attitude of Eduardo Manalo shows how weak the INC religious cult nowadays. In the first place, why would a religious leader be involved in government appointments? Why Eduardo Manalo be disappointed if his recommendations for government appointments were not followed by the Philippine president? (It has been reported that INC endorsed/pushed the appointment of the director of National Bureau of Investigation (NBI)).
Politics is dirty as they say. INC likes to play in mud like a pig. If INC has a decency of staying clean out of spiritual reasons, why would INC allow themselves to be involved with politics? It's because the INC survival is now solely relying on their political connections. The continued decrease of INC membership is alarming. Very alarming. Actually, since from the start, INC has been involved with politics. From Felix Manalo, Erano Manalo and now Eduardo Manalo likes to be involved with politics. The political failures of Erano Manalo from the past maybe are being reaped by his son Eduardo Manalo. Erano Manalo used to support Ferdinand Marcos against Cory Aquino (Noynoy's mother). The INC involvement on EDSA3 is also unforgettable. That is how far the INC would go if their political agendas are being given by the Philippine government. INC voted for Joseph Estrada previously and when Estrada was ousted by Gloria Arroyo, INC did not liked it. So the INC marched during the EDSA3 to unseat Arroyo and reinstate Joseph Estrada. The protest ended in amicable agreement between Arroyo and the INC. On the report of Ramon Tulfo, it has mentioned that ….
The source said the religious sect’s withdrawal of support from the Aquino administration is expected to have grave political repercussions for the fledgling administration.
We should not be intimidated by the bluffing of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC). It can be only a tactic of INC so Noynoy would be crawling back to the claws of INC. Iglesia Ni Cristo is a well-known political cult here in the Philippines. INC cult should not be trusted. They should be feared. INC is a dangerous cult who would use everything they can to get what they want. Eduardo Manalo is a childish freak expecting political favors just like what they have enjoyed under Gloria Arroyo administration. Eduardo Manalo should stop dreaming and wake up that INC deserves much respect as he have expected. The INC cult should be treated as they deserve. INC is a cult. INC should be treated as a cult. Eduardo Manalo is a childish seeking special attention. Eduardo Manalo should be ignored.
