Dear brethren and friends,
If you've come across a blog called marcoeranomanalo.wordpress.com, know this: IT’S A FAKE! A cubic zirconia trying very hard to pass itself off as a diamond!
The articles in the blog were supposedly authored by Bro. Marc Manalo upon whom the lying geniuses have bestowed a title of “Executive Minister” of a make-believe new religion they call the “Restored Church of Christ”.
If the author’s articles hadn’t been so pathetic, I probably would have been angry. But I actually feel sorry for the poor blogger who is clearly in over his head. What he needs is further mentoring on deceitful journalism, an art perfected by his far more sophisticated and devious masters.
In all fairness though, the concept was quite clever. Though not original, it is certainly more imaginative and entertaining than the others they’ve come up with so far. That they gave the assignment to a witless individual who obviously has no talent for creative writing is beside the point. If I were feeling generous, I’d say the blog is a failed attempt at a satire. But rather than being charitable, why don’t we just call it like it is -- an UNAUTHORIZED and UNLAWFUL online IMPERSONATION of a private individual with intent to spin fabricated tales and false confessions to deceive unsuspecting and naïve readers. It is unethical, slanderous, and desperate.
Allow me to cite a couple of examples so you can see for yourself the lies the twisted minds behind this blog have spun. The other falsities are too laughable and a waste of time to even cover here.
The lie they want to pass off as truth.
The blog claims that Bro. Marc has established a new church with himself as Executive Minister. To prove this bogus claim, they present snippets from the Articles of Incorporation of “Restore the Church Asia Group, Inc.”, a corporation founded for the express purpose of engaging in “philanthropic, humanitarian and charitable purposes, all for the deprived members’ welfare; to solicit aid, donations and contributions through any forms of media or private entity/person to assist, aid and alleviate the plight of the sick, the poor and the needy.”
Notice how from that clearly stated humanitarian purpose, they’ve concluded that a church has been established! Not only is it bewildering in its absurdity, it is a NON SEQUITUR rooted in MALICE. This, by the way, is the same LIE propagated by other INC social media outlets in conjunction with Net25 (where interviews are scripted) and Eagle News (otherwise known as A Disgrace to Journalism). It is such a shame that the people behind these attacks have fallen so low as to manufacture too obvious a lie. Why do you keep on insulting your readers/viewers? Let me remind you again lest you’ve forgotten: THE BRETHREN ARE NOT STUPID! They know how to discern TRUTH from LIES!
Actually, we have already exposed this falsehood in a recent article entitled Irresponsible Journalism at its Worst. I urge you to review that article. The “purpose” of the corporation, as contained in its Articles of Incorporation, which that fake blog intentionally left out, is published there. Note that to this day, the perpetrators of the lie have not countered my article. Instead, they have chosen to build on the lie with even more lies. The reason should be obvious – the foundation lie is indefensible! I challenge you now, Sanggunian, along with your many writers and bloggers, go ahead… try your best to defend it. I’ll just be on the sidelines, watching you fall flat on your face with this latest scheme of yours.
Libelous accusation of a respected journalist.
As you know, INC likes to throw words such as “biased” and “double standard” when news reports do not favor them even though they are factual. Among the recipients of these nasty name-calling from INC is the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI). On Dec 17, 2015, that fake blog attacked the credibility and integrity of PDI and its recently passed editor-in-chief, the late Letty Jimenez-Magsanoc. The particularly venomous article accused PDI editors and staff of accepting bribes, from us, no less! See https://marcoeranomanalo.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/philippine-daily-inquirer-is-that-the-kind-of-news-worthy-of-our-payment/. This, we deemed, was worth responding to and is actually the impetus for this article.
Allow me to make this crystal clear. WE SHUN BRIBERY IN ALL ITS FORMS. The fact is, we are constantly harassed and persecuted for speaking out and exposing acts of corruption and bribery by high officials of INC. Sanggunian, do not attribute to us what has become common practice for you! It is general knowledge among members of the press that INC pays for “good publicity” and that there are some journalists who are willing to forgo their code of ethics in exchange for abuloy-funded payoff.
INC despised PDI and Letty Magsanoc, in particular, because under her leadership, PDI could neither be threatened nor bought. And since the mighty INC couldn’t force this principled woman to do its bidding, they resorted to cyber bullying by attacking her and her newspaper.
It is my loss that I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Letty Magsanoc while she was living. I only knew of her and her good reputation as a journalist. I learned more about her from the tributes paid to her after she died. Her colleagues and friends described her as an “icon of Philippine journalism”, a “beacon of light during Martial Law", as someone who wasn’t afraid to fight for what she believed in, a supporter of the Filipino people’s struggle for freedom and democracy, and an advocate for human rights. And while everyone mourned her passing, the Sanggunian and their cohorts rejoiced, thinking that this was the end of an era for PDI, that without its stalwart former editor-in-chief, PDI will now join the folds of others who are in INC's pocket! Triple boos to you, Sanggunian, hard to believe, but you have actually sunk lower than low!
I would like to take this opportunity to offer our thanks to the staff at PDI who worked with Letty Magsanoc -- for being honest and fair, for not caving in to threats, for not succumbing to bribery, and for continuing to set the bar high for Philippine journalism. The INC Defenders and I commend you and others like you in the media. You come from a rare breed. We may not know most of you, but we thank you anyway, from the bottom of our hearts.
Now to all the Ministers, STF, ACTIV and fanatics out there who are prowling like a mad beast just to cover up the truth with lies and more lies, please bear in mind that the more you try to deceive people with your half-truths and twisted misconceptions, the more you will confirm their silent observations. The true brethren are no longer naive children whom you can bribe, coerce or manipulate to do your bidding. Being a Minister or a church officer is not a BADGE you can wave around angrily, then expect the brethren to shiver with fear and bow to you with absolute blind obedience. Because if you still have that backward-thinking mindset then you'll be surprised when one by one, the brethren will start to stand up for what is right, one by one they will speak out and proclaim the truth, and when that time comes... you will find yourself, alone, surrounded and.... DEFEATED! Because you cannot silence the truth anymore! No more!
