Women and the Iglesia Ni Cristo Executive Ministers

Behind Every Man’s Success Is A Woman.

I don’t know if this holds true with the Manalo family of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC).

Please continue reading and find out.

The Rosita Trillanes rape case is a ghost that continues to hunt the credibility of Felix Manalo and the Iglesia Ni Cristo. It is a nightmare for every INC members to know that Felix Manalo has been accused of rape by his own INC member. A court even found Felix Manalo as a ‘man with low moral’. Manalo joined many religions (Methodist Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church, Disciples of Christ, Christian Mission and Seventh Day Adventists) before he decided to form Iglesia Ni Kristo. Felix Manalo had 2 wives, the first, Tomasa Sereneo died then he immediately remarried again, Honorata de Guzman.

Felix Manalo was a former Catholic. Yes, the same Catholic religion that the INC ministers and members always love to attack and malign. Felix Manalo also joined Methodist and then Seven Day Adventist until he realized that he has a ‘calling’ and established his own church and preached to everyone that he is actually an angel being prophesied by the Holy Scriptures. It is also INC’s claim that there is no other true church aside from Iglesia Ni Cristo. With my estimate of less than 1 million, I think it’s sad to think that only INC members (mostly Filipinos) will be sent to heaven.

Everyone knows that Iglesia Ni Cristo supported Gloria Arroyo in the highly doubtful 2004 election. In return, Gloria Arroyo treated INC as a friend and a dependable ally. It is a mutual bonding made from hell. The close relationship of Gloria Arroyo and Iglesia Ni Cristo did not started as sweet as honey. INC tried to oust Gloria Arroyo in EDSA 3 where GMA was forced to declare a State of Rebellion. INC members died in EDSA 3. After starting the relationship on a wrong foot, the bond between Iglesia Ni Cristo and Gloria Arroyo was made even much stronger. Arroyo, which polls says as the Most corrupt President, later declared the much-hated Iglesia Ni Cristo Day on July 27, 2009.

[wiki] Eduardo Manalo (son and successor of Eraño G. Manalo) was also reported to have an involvement in EDSA 3. … According to Armando Doronila’s The Fall of Joseph Estrada: The Inside Story, – as well as local newspaper reports such as the May 7, 2001 issue of Philippine Daily Inquirer, Manalo was reportedly involved in a rebellion plot against the Philippine government under Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in EDSA III… The political nature of the Manalo family is very clear and the alliance of the Iglesia Ni Cristo with Gloria Arroyo cannot be denied.

Aside from being involved in government appointments, Iglesia Ni Cristo of the Manalo family is also well known for intervening political issues in the Philippines. INC cult group calling different Congressmen to stop a widely supported impeachment case against an Ombudsman is totally wicked. Filipino people has been waiting the impeachment case against Ombudsman Gutierrez because of its plea bargaining agreement with General Carlos Garcia and other gross negligence by the office of the Ombudsman. 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.

Iglesia Ni Cristo failed in convincing Congressmen to stop the impeachment case against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez. Many lawmakers on the House of Representatives have said that a high ranking official of influential political group of Iglesia Ni Cristo has been making call about the impeachment. Half of Filipinos back Gutierrez’s impeachment, as proven by a survey. 4 members of the Macapagal / Arroyo clan and the INC Congressman Marcoleta are among who voted NO. It is widely believed that most of the 46 members of the House who voted NO are sympathizers of Gloria Arroyo. Why did Iglesia Ni Cristo try to stop the impeachment of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez? — Merceditas Gutierrez was appointed as Ombudsman by Gloria Arroyo, a friend of INC.

Iglesia Ni Cristo and Noynoy Aquino

Iglesia Ni Cristo

Mr. President Noynoy Aquino, how can you so blind to see that Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) don’t like you. Iglesia Ni Cristo prefers Gloria Arroyo than Noynoy Aquino. This was clearly manifested when Iglesia Ni Cristo tried to stop the impeachment vote for Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez. Good friends don’t take the side of your enemy. Noynoy Aquino wants Ombudsman Gutierrez OUT. Gloria Arroyo wants Ombudsman Gutierrez IN. Here comes the Iglesia Ni Cristo of the Manalo family reportedly called Congressmen to stop the Impeachment case for the embattled Ombudsman. In 2010 presidential election, Iglesia Ni Cristo endorsed Noynoy Aquino. Noynoy Aquino was leading all survey ratings with a clear path to victory. However, Iglesia Ni Cristo have a new Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo who is still a newbie for big political decisions. Eduardo Manalo just inherited the position as INC leader from his father who died of sickness. Filipinos want to win Noynoy Aquino as the Philippine President and lead them to better life. Iglesia Ni Cristo wants their political survival by voting the leading presidential candidate.

Iglesia Ni Cristo had a Bitter experience with the Aquino clan’s Hacienda Luicita

• Iglesia Ni Cristo stood behind Marcos against Cory Aquino

• Iglesia Ni Cristo voted Gloria Arroyo (Cory Aquino called for Arroyo’s resignation)

Tantrum of INC Eduardo Manalo

Iglesia Ni Cristo displeased with P-Noy?

Iglesia Ni Cristo

Honestly, do Filipinos think that INC is really looking forward for better future by endorsing politicians during election? Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) is well known for endorsing candidates who are leading the surveys. Iglesia Ni Cristo learned their lesson of their mistake by endorsing an unpopular candidate Danding Cojuangco. After their failure of endorsing a loosing candidate in the 1992 election, Iglesia Ni Cristo now usually endorsed candidates who are leading surveys. Joseph Estrada (1998), Gloria Arroyo (2004) and Noynoy Aquino (2010). There are no spiritual and moral common denominator among the last 3 presidential candidates endorsed by Iglesia Ni Cristo. Estrada, Arroyo and Aquino are all leading the early surveys before the election. I cannot escape my logical reasoning that Iglesia Ni Cristo only endorses politicians that will benefit the INC interest. Filipinos do not even think and see INC as spiritual heroes. Only politicians love to mingle with Iglesia Ni Cristo members. There are even some places in the Philippines that INC members are being feared.

Mr. President Noynoy Aquino, please stop or cut any communication line and connection with the influential political group of Iglesia Ni Cristo. INC is an avid supporter of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez and ex-President Gloria Arroyo. INC did not even supported the democracy call of Cory Aquino against the tyranny of Ferdinand Marcos.

INC Member LTO Chief Virginia Torres is facing graft case and criminal charges

Iglesia Ni Cristo

The Department of Justice (DoJ) have already recommended the suspension of Land Transportation Office chief Virginia Torres. Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III headed a fact-finding committee about the failed takeover of Stradcom, the sole information technology (IT) service provider of the Land Transportation Office (LTO). Why is it that Virginia Torres still sitting on her position as LTO chief? A Department of Justice report also recommended that administrative charges should be filed against Torres. Why is it that Virginia Torres still sitting on her position as LTO chief? Southern Leyte Rep. Roger Mercado, chair of the committee on transportation and communications in the House of Representatives said Torres should take a leave of absence after the DoJ recommendation. Why is it that Virginia Torres still sitting on her position as LTO chief? Philippine Daily Inquirer Columnist Neal Cruz is also suggesting that Virginia Torres should go on leave. Me, as a common Filipino Citizen and a tax payer, I am asking, Why is it that Virginia Torres still sitting on her position as LTO chief?

Pakapalan na lang ng mukha?

LTO Chief Virginia Torres, you are an INC member, right?

Dear Iglesia Ni Cristo Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo, I know that INC dictates INC members on whom should they vote during elections. Can you please ask or even plead to your INC follower ‘Kapatid na’ Virginia Torres to have some rest and take a leave of absence? Taking a leave of absence does not exactly mean that she is guilty already. Just to calm things down and let the course of justice take its own path, Virginia Torres can take voluntary leave of absence, kahit man lang sa delicadeza. Oh sorry. I don’t mean to bother you too much Sir INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo. I forgot that you also have some explaining to do on why did Iglesia Ni Cristo tried to stop the impeachment case of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez in Congress? Whew, the INC must be very busy these previous days. After the death of Eraño Manalo, Eduardo Manalo have to take charge in leading INC on their political decisions that may affect the Iglesia Ni Cristo. Iglesia Ni Cristo is a close ally of Gloria Arroyo. Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez is believed to be an ally of Gloria Arroyo. It must be hard to turn your back on a close friend, right?

Gloria Arroyo —>>> Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez <<<— Eduardo Manalo

Sometimes, even the wicked people cannot sleep at night.

Aquino asks LTO head to go on leave

Talagang hindi nagkusa si INC member Virginia Torres na mag-leave of absence. Kina-ilangan pa siyang utusan ng Presidente ng Pilipinas. Ilang buwan na palang hindi binabayaran ang Stradcom. Balasubas ba o talagang may personal agenda ang LTO chief sa Stradcom? (nagtatanong lang naman po ako). Masaya ako at nakinig na si Pinoy sa panawagan ng nakakarami about kay Virgie Torres. Sana nga, tanggalin na siya sa LTO. Malusutan kaya ni INC member Virginia Torres ang Graft case sa kanya? Abangan natin. Masayang laban ito. Sana magpaliwanag na din si Eduardo Manalo about sa pagsuporta ng Iglesia Ni Cristo kay Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez.
