Before I proceed with this article, let me first clarify that any and all activities of the Church in an official capacity, including the filing of civil or criminal cases against anyone or any institution, will ALWAYS require the EXPRESSED CONSENT AND APPROVAL OF THE EXECUTIVE MINISTER, EDUARDO V. MANALO. ALWAYS!
Why does it need the approval of the Executive Minister? The following are the sensible reasons:
- They will be representing the Church and the Church Administration’s “OFFICIAL” approval, and following such approval will prove their “UNITY” to this Administration.
- Whatever the result or decision will greatly reflect the image of the Church or the Church Administration, therefore, they cannot afford to LOSE or else it will tarnish the said Administration’s image and credibility.
- In filing court cases, the Church Administration will have to make sure to flex its muscles ONLY in places where they have “INFLUENCE” among the Court Judges, Government Officials or Law Enforcement Officials who are “FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS” of the Church Administration. They will pull all the “STRINGS” in order to ensure that the Church Administration will get its way.
- They want to make sure that they will have all the resources to commit the act (money, lawyers, NET25 and DZEC coverage, Social Media campaign and of course, the willing accomplices who will pretend they acted on their own accord or ON THEIR OWN FREE WILL without the INFLUENCE OR INSTRUCTION OF ANYONE to make it appear as if they are all of a sudden “independent” from the Administration), therefore, disregarding the “UNITY” they once held and hailed so dear.
Having pointed these out, let me then reiterate that WHOEVER FILES A COMPLAINT IN COURT AGAINST ANYONE WHO SAYS ANYTHING “DISTASTEFUL” AGAINST THE CHURCH OR THE CHURCH ADMINISTRATION, AND SAYS THAT HE IS DOING IT WITHOUT ANYONE’S HELP OR INFLUENCE, IS FLAT OUT LYING. The mere fact that they have to pretend that the Church Administration doesn’t have anything to do with their decision to file suit only reflects how much they assume that everybody else is that stupid to believe their “story”.
In the past 7 years of Eduardo V. Manalo as Executive Minister of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, observers of the once-highly-respected Church cannot help but comment on how “immature”, “tantrum-prone” and “insecure” EVM’s Administration is as compared to the previous Executive Ministers before him, namely his father Bro. Eraño G. Manalo and his grandfather, Bro. Felix Y. Manalo. There are indeed a few things that Bro. FYM and Bro. EGM lacked, which ironically and unfortunately EVM was able to achieve in record-breaking time. To list a few that you already know, EVM has definitely put the Church and his Administration in the limelight due to linkage to corruption, misappropriation of church funds, money laundering and smuggling, Billion peso bank loans, luxurious and exorbitant lifestyles, suppression of freedoms, oppression, human rights violations, familial discord, Cyber Bullying, Commercialization of the Church, obsession with Guinness World Records, insatiable need for recognition and admiration, automated “Fake News” fabrications, rampant filing of libel cases and trumped up cases, and sad to say, these are just for starters! The list goes on that it can almost fill in one or two articles.
Among all of these enumerated embarrassing benchmarks of the EVM Church Administration, let us tackle their flavor of the month: THE RAMPANT FILING OF NUMEROUS LIBEL CASES AND TRUMPED UP CHARGES. Can you imagine who the genius is behind this campaign against anyone who is deemed unsavory in the sight of the EVM Administration? Well let me tell you a bit of history that is not well-known to a lot of people. Some time ago during the Eli Soriano crusade, the head of the INC Legal Department was the Minister/lawyer, Restituto Lazaro and the one who handles the actual legal operations was the Ministerial Student/lawyer, Atty. Vimar Barcellano. These people were not forthcoming to the Administration of Bro. Eraño G. Manalo then. They reported lies to him and covered up most of their heinous crimes.
As a result, Atty. Resty Lazaro committed so many legal blunders for the church, he was eventually relieved of his position. As for Atty. Barcellano, after his wife discovered his extra-marital affairs, he was kicked out from the Ministry and from the INC Legal Department but because of his contributions to the Eli Soriano filing of libel cases, he was not expelled from the Church. Instead, he was “advised” to join the police force, after which he became Captain in the notorious INC bailiwick, the Quezon City Police District, as the head of its Legal Department. And in his desperation to get back into the good graces of the Church Administration, Atty. Vimar BArcellano, later on, spearheaded the covert operation (black-ops) attack on Eli Soriano and his supporters at their Convention Center in Pampanga using none other than the INC Police Officers of QCPD. Their black-ops included but not limited to the murder of the expelled INC Ministers and members who joined Eli Soriano’s Ang Dating Daan or who spoke against the Church Administration. All those who belonged to Atty. Barcellano’s Black-Ops Team were under an oath of silence, that is why the cases were never ever solved. And this paved the way to Atty. Vimar Barcellano’s immediate and continuous promotion in his position up to the highly strategic post he now holds as CHIEF PROSECUTOR of Dasmariñas, Cavite. It’s much clearer now, why most of the highly questionable activities of the Church Administration of Eduardo V. Manalo is done in Cavite, Philippines because Chief Prosecutor Vimar Barcellano is there to make everything “appear to be a legit procedure”.
During the crisis-riddled EVM Administration, it is now under the self-proclaimed savior of Eduardo Manalo, none other than his son-in-law, T.J. Orosa. The “undeclared” head of the INC Legal Department and the one who calls the shots. That’s what being married to EVM’s daughter, Dorothy Manalo-Orosa, bought TJ in his pursuit of being EVM’s go-to guy, especially now that he has been “blessed” when he was “allowed” by EVM to join the Ministry to further his “life goals”. That’s the clear difference between EVM and his father, Bro. Eraño- EVM blesses and allows his wicked tyrants to do whatever it takes, even the most heinous crimes against humanity and the law to show his dominion over those who are critical of his Administration. Whoever is incensed against him and his gang “will disappear, amount to nothing, and will perish!” as he incited during his recent Pay Per View sermons from around the world!
So, how does this boy wonder genius think in terms of legal strategy to quash the accelerating depletion of the Church’s good image and credibility? He applies his extreme fascination of Sun Tzu’s approach to all things, but unfortunately, he fails miserably in the Art of War in terms of understanding and applying it in the real world.
“The wise warrior avoids the battle.” ― Sun Tzu,
Indeed, this warrior right here is no wise warrior at all, and all the warriors under him, obey the arrogance and whims of a fool. That is why all the Ministers-Lawyers whose primary duty should have been Bible-based, became parading baffoons who showcased, not only their lack of jurisprudence, but a complete void of decency and common-sense to say the least. And so, with their false sense of Eureka and grandeur, they thought that filing numerous libel cases against anyone who speak truthful commentaries about the Iglesia Ni Cristo would solve their problems. Off they went, impulsively and meticulously plotting the different locations where the libel cases should be filed and they flaunt the joy and glee of the rabid District Ministers who awaited and obeyed the golden command for them to prove their loyalty and fervor as the chosen warriors! With their thumbs up, they herald the majestic seal of the Executive Minister in their District as a forefront in this battle.
These pictures of District Ministers, Church Officials, and Church members arrogantly and intimidatingly brandishing their gallant act of “defending” the honor of the church and their Executive Minister became so polarized that it evolved into a stigma that blinded the fanatic members of the church into believing that they are doing God a service. Just look closely at these images:
So what exactly are these people overly reacting about? In his article in Inquirer, titled ON TARGET: The Judge who doesn’t know, MR. Ramon Tulfo asked a closing question that could have been easily answered or refuted:
And because of this, Mr. Tulfo suddenly entered the crosshairs of the ire of the Church Administration thereby unleashing its wrath like a spoiled brat having tantrums because his lollipop has been snatched. So Sun Tzu’s stratagems went out the window the minute they made this classical mistake of being reactive rather than benevolent.
During the time of Bro. Eraño G. Manalo and Bro. Felix Y. Manalo, many have also spoken ill of them, but if they filed libel cases for each and every one of them then it would have exhausted all of the church’s time and energy. And on the other hand, for the many times in more than a century that the Minister’s uttered the words ANTI-CHRIST to refer to the Catholic Pope and all the leaders of other religions, just imagine if libel suits were filed against the Church Administration and the Church as a whole? It’s a good thing other religious leaders are not as “onion-skinned” as Eduardo V. Manalo or else there would have been never-ending lawsuits and counter-suits.
So what did Mr. Ramon Tulfo do upon receiving numerous death threats and intimidation from the influential church organization and its fanatical members? He fought back.
The EVM Administration thinks that this is such a good idea, not realizing, until it’s finally too late, that he is only allowing the Church to be dragged into the mud by now being publicly portrayed as the biggest bully in the history of the Philippines. This will not end well because forgiveness and humility are definitely foreign words to the current Church Administration. It can only end in one or two ways- either Mr. Ramon Tulfo ends up in jail or in the morgue (may God forbid) because unfortunately, Eduardo V. Manalo will never allow himself to be humiliated or declared as a loser so expect bloodshed and violence among the bloodthirsty fanatics of EVM.
Whoever fed EVM’s ego to allow such declaration of a legal libel fist fight is the ultimate moron. Such advice only managed to put the Church’s credibility in the quicksand of public opinion because the filing of libel cases to silence critics is an ancient art of suppression. In an article published by Inquirer.net pertaining to the same identical pattern of retaliation of the Church against Bro. Lowell Menorca II, it became so evident that the public saw it for what it really was:
“The Iglesia ni Cristo issued an official denial, which was curiously phrased. “We did not serve the warrant [of arrest],” Iglesia spokesman Edwil Zabala told reporters. “It was the Philippine National Police who served it.” Of course, the Iglesia didn’t serve the warrant. Why would anyone expect it to?
But the use of law enforcement agencies and the court of law to subvert the ends of justice, rather than to serve them, is a depressing commonplace. The filing of libel cases in different parts of the country, for instance, is an ancient art. On the assumption that an allegedly libelous statement is carried in a newspaper of national circulation or on a television newscast with viewers from across the country or on a website with nationwide reach, a person or organization (or religion) of means can file a libel case anywhere in the archipelago. This loophole in the law has been exploited many times, to harass an enemy, or wear down his defenses, or drain his finances.
Journalists are all too familiar with this legal tactic, and it does not bode well at all for Menorca. Those who resort to it are not interested in vindicating their reputation, but in spreading intimidation. A libel case in Lanao del Norte against someone who lives in Quezon City is not legal redress, but pure retaliation. “

And because the Church under the Administration of Eduardo V. Manalo started this culture of tyranny, the once persecuted true Church of Christ became the persecutor and oppressor. Iglesia Ni Cristo, “The Holy Bully” is now the more appropriate term coined for it. From a religious organization, it has now transformed into a MAFIA, as observed by the masses.

So here’s the bottomline. The mere fact that the INC Ministers and members suddenly filed numerous libel suits against Mr. Ramon Tulfo all over the archipelago, proves all the more that this is an orchestrated move by the EVM Administration. They will continue to do so, regardless of the cost (for as long as the brethren continue to give offerings during worship services) or damage to the image of the Church as it continues to deteriorate. And just like clockwork, the fanatic members will be under a mob rule who will transform into vile and vicious beings contrary to how the true Iglesia Ni Cristo members used to be. They will be arrogant, violent and unforgiving like their leaders who are wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Now here’s the funny part… Say anything against the Church or Eduardo V. Manalo and prepare to be the recipient of the legal fury of lawsuits from the INC Legal Department… BUTTTTTT!!!! Say something about the Billion Peso Bank Loans used to construct the Philippine Arena and prepare for… *cricket sound* *cricket sound*… NOTHING. This is Eduardo V. Manalo’s Achilles’ heel, this is his ultimate vulnerability because it is true no matter how much they deny it. They wouldn’t have the sacs to file libel suits against Rappler’s well investigated and documented article regarding the Church’s Billion peso debt. Here’s a clearer picture from our friend Sher Lock:
This issue is something that makes EVM mum all of a sudden and all they can do is summarily dismiss the issue as “fake” or “unfounded”, yet they are petrified to file any libel cases against Rappler for fear that the TRUTH will be AUTHENTICATED and REVEALED. That is something that EVM Administration is not prepared to face because it will be the beginning of their downfall. The brethren will be awakened from their slumber and finally realize that they have been played a fool by Eduardo V. Manalo and his cohorts of Ministers who willingly spread his lies and deceit to keep the flow of cash into the coffers flowing.
The second and final point I would like to raise is this: The Church Administration is a COWARD. It takes advantage of its money, power, and influence to silence those whom they can intimidate- the weak, the poor, and the helpless. But towards those whom the Church Administration cannot intimidate no matter how damaging their words are, a libel suit will never see the light of day.
The range and scope of this man’s accusations against the Iglesia Ni Cristo are far reaching and deeply damaging to the Church. Yet, Eduardo V. Manalo, his Son-In-Law TJ Orosa, the whole circus act of lawyers in the INC Legal Department, the District Ministers and SCAN members and Church Officers will NEVER file libel cases against our Muslim Brothers. So where is the Principle of Integrity that these INC Ministers claim to be fighting for? Their smug arrogance goes out the window.
So the next time the brave and dignified Ministers and SCAN fanatic members of the Church feel the itch to file libel cases against critics of the Church, start with Ibrahim Romas, otherwise, stop and listen to yourselves because you are no longer acting as Christ’s disciples, instead, you have all degenerated into hypocrites and bigots.
“44 But I say: Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!45 In that way you will be acting as true sons of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust too. 46 If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even scoundrels do that much. 47 If you are friendly only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even the heathen do that.” ~ Matthew 5:44-47 Living Bible
A piece of advice, not from me, but from the Lord himself, pray for those who persecute you. If you consider them your enemies, love them. Stop promoting HATE and BIGOTRY.
A scoundrel and a heathen, therefore, is much better in the sight of our Lord God than these religious hypocrites and bigots. But we pray for them to repent from their wicked ways and may they cast out evil from their heart. We pray for Eduardo V. Manalo and we will be able to forgive him as God forgives us from our sins but for all the crimes he and his wicked Council committed, he shall be held accountable here on earth according to the laws of the land and God will hold him accountable for his sins against the Holy Spirit. If you continue to refuse to have an open dialogue with your critics much like you still refuse to talk to your own mother when all she wants is to express her side of the story (I sure hope you don’t file a libel case against her when you hear what she has to say) then we look forward to the day when we shall visit you and talk to you inside your lonely, cold and dark jail cell…
