Members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) who are militant and shameless enough to create more traffic in Edsa -- yes, they gloat, they brag that they have created more traffic in the busiest road in the whole country -- in pursuit of their political opposition to DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima, are still there.
This church group is known for their bloc voting during elections. From Municipal and City Mayors and Vice Mayors, Councilors, to Provincial Governors and Vice Governors, Board members, to Congressmen and Senators, and to President and Vice President. There is big money involved of course, although Iglesia leaders will deny it.
What a shame,Sen. Grace Poe. I was leaning to support you, but with this statement, goodbye na tayo. These Iglesia militants in Edsa are defending their insecurity and hypocrisy, not their faith. If they defend their faith, they should be in their churches, or other public places, NOT in already traffic-choked Edsa.
VPBinay is known for political opportunism. His statement is expected, not surprising. Pag may dugo, sisipsip talaga ang linta.
Any serious politician who will challenge this Iglesia bullying and risk being rejected by their bloc voting deserves support. We are not talking about shrinking government here. We are simply talking about government being able to enforce the rule of law. The law applies to all, it applies equally to unequal people. If all other groups are prohibited -- and they should be prohibited -- from occupying Edsa, then that law should apply to the Iglesia militants too. In this case, the Iglesia guys are exempted. Mob rule beats the rule of law.
