Iglesia ni Cristo Day? What the…!

Before I piss off some really good friends of mine, let me first say that while I’m not an Iglesia ni Cristo, I respect them as a religious sect. I have several friends who are members of this organization. The point of this blog is not about them, it’s about how this government is treating our intelligence.

The Inquirer reported today that the government is declaring July 27 as Iglesia Ni Cristo day in commemoration of their founding anniversary.

An anniversary celebration for a big religious group, yes. But a national holiday? Shouldn’t it follow, then that Bro. Mike’s El Shaddai receive the same holiday treatment on their own anniversary — especially that according to their claims, their membership is far more than that of INC? Or Bro. Eddie’s Jesus is Lord? Oh, by the way, Victory Christian Fellowship, one of those huge Christian groups that contributes to the spiritual and moral development of the country is having their 25th founding anniversary in 2 weeks time. I’m not a member, but I love these guys. I know some of their pastors and they are one of the most sincere and passionate leaders I’ve ever known.

Can we also ask for a Grace Place day on September 3?

Let me get straight to the point. You advisers in Malacanang are doing this for one reason: votes for 2010 election! The INC are known for block voting. You’re insulting our intelligence.

Hayyy!. Sana 2010 na.

Update: It gets even worse: It was actually a law signed by congress. Magalit na ang magagalit sa akin, but don’t we have better laws to pass these days?
