PNOY PROVES UNSTABLE TIES WITH INC!
No matter how he puts it, Pnoy’s refusal to attend the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) event at the Quirino Grandstand is an indirect admission of his ‘UNSTABLE STANDING’ with the country’s biggest religious group.
Otherwise, he would have grabbed the opportunity to show to the millions of INC members both here and abroad that his friendship with their leaders is as strong as ever.
That there’s no problem and he still has the INC’s support.
Pnoy claimed that he had received a text message assuring him that the affair was all part of the INC’s evangelization work.
NO POLITICAN IN HIS RIGHT MIND would ignore an invitation from the INC, the acknowledged biggest voting bloc in the country, especially with the next elections just more than a year away.
No sane politician would skip a chance to show to the world that he is on good terms with the INC. But that is assuming that he had been indeed invited.
First reports had said he was not.
If Pnoy had been assured by whoever that the event was strictly non-political, then there’s NO LOGICAL REASON for him to worry about possible political implications of his presence, as he had claimed to media people.
Unless he had intended to use the gathering to again boast of his purported, GENERIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS or launch another verbal attack against Chief Justice Renato Corona.
So there can only one reason why Pnoy still decided not to attend the event.
He wasn’t sure how cordial will he be received by both the INC leaders and the scores of members present. He had no assurance that the invitation was not just for formality, he being the President of the country.
And any welcome less than very warm, or applause not even near to resounding in intensity, would have been an unfathomable humiliation for Pnoy.
Which would also have been UNDENIABLE PROOF that Pnoy is
POPULAR as the surveys project
him to be. 30 NOT
