Miriam: Fool, if you don't get INC's message
MANILA - Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago said politicians can only be fools if they don’t get the message behind the event of the influential Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).
“There is a message behind the INC event today. If you are a politician and you don’t get it, you are a fool,” Santiago said in a short message.
There was no further explanation.
The INC scheduled on Monday its medical, relief and evangelical missions in Manila.
INC said this was not the first time they did the activity, but it was outside Manila. The event snarled traffic and forced courts to suspend work and the Department of Education to suspend classes.
INC is adamant, however, that there is nothing political in its activity.
"Walang bahid-pulitika ang 'Kabayan Ko, Kapatid Ko,' sapagkat matagal na naming ginagawa ito. Marami nang pinuntahan ang 'Kabayan Ko, Kapatid Ko,' Naintindihan namin na may ilang nag-iisip ng ganoon. Pagtulong sa kapwa at paghahayag ng salita ng diyos lamang [ang pakay dito]." INC's Minister of The Gospel Edwil Zabala told dzMM.
