Stampede

By

The Inquirer’s front page had a headline quoting survivors of the Tuesday earthquake as saying: “We were lucky it was a holiday.” I can imagine people saying it was “good”—“Buti na lang” in Tagalog, “Maayo na lang” in Cebuano—that it happened on a holiday (thank the Muslims for Eid al Adha), which meant fewer people were in offices and schools.

Madness

For one wild moment it seemed like a scene from that memorable protest rally in Manila in February 1986, days before the People Power revolt, when Citizen Cory called for a boycott of institutions, business firms, and newspapers owned or associated with the dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his cronies.

Miracles

By

I’m still thinking about what Pope Francis said the other day, about his being pained to see Catholic clergy driving flashy cars and his bidding them to use more modest ones. Seemingly a minor thing, it has not very minor implications.

Bane

By

What a difference an election makes. Three years ago, the one thing that occupied our minds was the extent to which Arroyo’s government would cheat. It was the first time votes would be counted electronically, which caused widespread anxiety and fear. The possibilities for cheating had just been jacked up a hundredfold, computerized canvassing threatening to make “Hello Garci” look like child’s play.

‘Block support’ shifting

By

Less than a week to the May 13 elections, the ground for an administration’s sweep of the Senate polls has been deeply eroded by shifts of “block support” from organizations controlling huge chunks of votes, such as the Iglesia ni Cristo and El Shaddai, the latter a religious group associated with the Roman Catholic Church.

Sainthood for Archbishop Oscar Romero

By

While many Filipino Church leaders are now on the campaign trail to openly and blatantly discredit candidates whom they consider “antilife” and anti-Catholic because these candidates went against the official Church stand on the Reproductive Health Law and supported it, I don’t see a groundswell that would spell the ultimate doom of these pro-RH candidates in the May 13 polls. Meaning, candidates will rise or fall not on RH issues.

Give unto Caesar

By

The Iglesia ni Cristo will be a huge factor in these elections, say several people. Its leaders have just issued a circular that demands that the “unity vote” be strictly observed.

Why do we allow this?

By

Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo had the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, Renato Corona has the Iglesia ni Cristo.

How CJ can explain his immense wealth

By

Is there really an Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) lobby to have Chief Justice Renato Corona acquitted by the Senate impeachment court? Malacañang doesn’t believe so, but I think it is very likely. The Palace said “it wouldn’t be surprised” if some people affiliated with the INC would lobby for Corona, but it doubted that the lobbying would be instigated or have the approval of INC’s leadership.

Battle for the streets

By

The Iglesia ni Cristo’s rally on Tuesday put at least 600,000 people on the streets in one of the biggest show-of-force demonstrations since the 1986 People Power Revolution. It came on the heels of the 26th anniversary of the first Edsa upheaval. The administration of President Aquino used the anniversary to rally public support for [...]
