THE TRAGICALLY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES OF A FATHER'S REJECTION OF HIS OWN CHILD: A BAND OF GORY BLOODSHEDS AND MURDERS
But for some the pain of rejection is too much to handle with LETHALLY CATASTROPHIC effects. Oftentimes these TRAUMATIC emotional pains which comes from rejection has a LASTING pain that haunts the person FOR LIFE driving them to think, do and not to do things intended to inflict retributive pain towards a more likely innocent victim(s). NOTHING CAN BE MORE PAINFUL THAN THE REJECTION OF YOUR OWN FATHER. A father that is supposed to be the source of primary moral support and love is instead the source of his own child’s MENTAL ANGUISH, EXTREME PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE and UNBEARABLE SUFFERING at a very tender age, generically ranging from CHILD ABUSE, INCESTUOUS RAPE, BEATINGS and NEGLECT to DELIBERATELY INDUCED HUNGER and ultimately KILLING the child by various means, some children are KILLED through STABBING, DROWNING, POISONING, STRANGULATION, etc.
Take for example the case of Mariannet Amper, a 12 year old girl who allegedly committed SUICIDE because of extreme poverty as initially reported by some UNRELIABLE Philippine media capitalizing on sensationalism rather than verifiability as IRRESPONSIBLE as the report made by GMANEWS.TV whose report goes like this;
The tragic life of Mariannet Amper, or why children commit suicide
11/10/2007 09:15 PM
By CLAIRE SY DELFIN
She would have completed her elementary school, but the 12-year-old girl grew so dejected that she hanged herself, and her dreams of finishing school died with her. Mariannet Amper’s suicide last week in Davao City hogged headlines and sparked off protest rallies against the government. Poverty has been blamed on her decision to end her life. Under her pillow was a letter she wrote addressed to television program, “Wish Ko Lang," which grants viewers’ wishes. On it, Mariannet wished for a new pair of shoes, a bag, a bicycle and better-paying jobs for her parents. She also left a diary, narrating her family’s difficulties surviving a life penniless in a little hut that has neither electricity nor running water. She also wrote that she had not attended school for a month for lack of transportation fare. “I suspect she did it because of our situation," her father Isabelo, a carpenter, told reporters in the vernacular.But psychiatrists disputes that poverty cannot be the only factor to push someone, especially a child, to commit suicide. “It is unfair to simply look at suicide in that angle (poverty)," said psychiatrist Dr. Ma. Luz Casimiro-Querubin. After all, many poor Filipinos do not resort to killing themselves despite their hopeless condition. And there have been cases of children born to well-to-do families who have committed or attempted suicide. Suicide is not an instant decision, she said. It is borne out of a suicidal tendency that the child develops within himself. Suicidal tendency, in turn, is a psychosocial and multi-factorial behavior that is developed through time when the child faces long-standing problems within himself and in his immediate environment. Soon, the child would manifest episodes of depression, hopelessness and low self-esteem. Although poverty is a risk factor, it can hardly stand-alone. It is the lack or absence of support system that compounds the child’s problem, leading her to lose hope and meaning in life, and eventually commit suicide. “The fact that Mariannet has six more siblings in a family with very limited resources indicates that some of them, including her, may be marginalized," Casimiro-Querubin says. Hence, even if she was born to a rich family, but was wanting of proper attention from significant people around her, she is prone to develop suicidal tendencies. Lack of dataExperts, however, find it difficult to conduct research on suicide for any age group in the country because the Philippines has no central registry for recording suicide and suicidal attempts. Data gathering is even made more difficult by religious and social biases.The latest data available is from the World Health Organization, which was released in 1993. It says that suicide rates per hundred thousand population in the Philippines are 2.5 for males and 1.7 for females. Casimiro-Querubin agrees that suicide is rare in the Philippines, but warns that it is happening and is increasing especially with the rising incidence of parents going abroad for employment, leaving behind children with distorted support system. “It has a high psychosocial cost to children," she said.Child psychiatrist Dr. Agnes Bueno said that in her practice, the youngest in her files of patients who attempted suicide seriously is an eight-year-old boy. A child below five years, she says, has no concept of death as permanent and meaningful. “Therefore, he is incapable of actualizing suicide although accident-proneness could be an equivalent in their age group," Bueno said.She shares in her article entitled, “When a Child Wants to Die,’ published in Medical Observer magazine in April 2001 a background inventory of attempted suicide among her patients. Her inventory shows the following:- Ten out of 10 belong to Class A economic status- Nine out of 10 are Catholics- Eight out of 10 are males- Eight out of 10 are due to relationships (family and romance)- Two out of 10 are due to clinical depression- Two out of 10 are in an incestuous relationship with their fathers- Ten out of 10 occurred in the home- Ten out of 10 are students- Five out of 10 are positive for family history of alcoholism- Two out of 10 are positive for family history of suicide- Three out of 10 have friends who also attempted suicideShe advises parents to immediately detect sudden changes in the child’s behavior as such are symptomatic of a suicidal tendency. Changes in the child’s academic performance, mood swings and instances when a child hurts another child or takes away things that do not belong to him are signs that parents should watch out for. If any of these happens, parents must open their lines of communication to the child and be more sensitive with his needs.Suicide is instinctLora (not her real name) recounts occasions during her childhood when she would pound her head on a concrete wall each time she would feel sad. At one time, she attempted to hang herself. To her recollection, her suicidal tendency started when she was nine or 10 years old. And this has remained until today that she is already in her late 20s, is married and has a child.“It’s instinct. Suicide is always an option whenever I feel depressed," she says. “It’s just right there waiting to happen."Lora says it doesn’t even need a major setback for her to entertain thoughts on suicide. A simple spat with her husband, or getting scolded by her mother when she was a child is enough. She considers her suicidal tendencies a dilemma, especially since she can’t even identify its source. All she remembers is that she hated her father when she was a child. She refuses to elaborate. Taking responsibilityBut in the case of Mariannet, the real reason for her suicide seems shoved away as the government has already taken responsibility for it. “We take responsibility for everything. Because we are leaders of the government, we need to ensure that services are there," Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo immediately ordered the Department of Education (DepEd) to fast track the expansion of the alternative distance-learning program that allows a child to study and finish schooling without having to go to a formal school.This way, Mariannet could have continued schooling without having to worry over transportation fare. DepEd Undersecretary Vilma Labrador has also instructed teachers to check on their students and conduct home visits after a child has gone absent for three days without prior notice. Fight vs povertyEven prior to Mariannet’s death, the President has ordered the Department of Budget and Management to release one billion pesos to fund hunger mitigation programs. She has also told a business forum that her economic efforts have started to bear fruit. “The common people are now feeling the benefits of a growing economy."This was instantly met with protests by left-wing organizations and anti-poverty groups, insisting that the economic growth fails to trickle down to the poor. A recent Social Weather Stations survey shows that about nine million Filipino families regarded themselves as poor. Many of them also said that they experienced “severe hunger" in the last three months. Psychiatrists, however, claimed that while there is a need to uplift the financial capacity of 87 million Filipinos, doing so cannot and will not guarantee an end to childhood suicide. They remind Filipinos that the core of problems in children takes its roots, not in their economic status, but in their family system. At the end of the day, it is back to basics – the family. - GMANews.TV
Later it was found by police authorities that the girl died NOT because she killed herself because of extreme poverty but because SHE WAS RAPED and eventually KILLED or LED TO DIE by her own father FALSIFYING initial media reports made by UNSCRUPOLOUS and MONEY-GREEDY media outfits in the Philippines that the poor girl died because she committed suicide out of extreme poverty. Later police investigations revealed FOULPLAY in the poor girl’s cause of DEATH with her own father as a prime suspect.
Police confirms Mariannet was raped; committed suicide

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/16 November) - Police here confirmed that 12-year old Mariannet Amper, who HANGED HERSELF at home on November 2, was a victim of RAPE. Supt. Matthew Baccay, chief of the Talomo Police Station, told reporters here Friday that the final autopsy report points to a case of rape, and the perpetrator could face the mandatory charge of statutory rape. 12 year old Mariannet Amper, who hanged herself at home on November 2, was a victim of rape."The penetration injury is very telling," he said.Under the Revised Penal Code, statutory rape is committed by having carnal knowledge of a woman under twelve years of age. The law also provides that penetration, no matter how slight, or mere introduction of the male organ into the labia of the pudendum constitutes carnal knowledge. Dr. Tomas Dimaandal, city medico-legal officer, who performed the autopsy on the exhumed remains of Mariannet Thursday, said TWO LACERATIONS WERE FOUND IN THE GIRL'S PRIVATE PART, one located at the left side, described as "shallow healed" and the other at the right side, described as "deep healed."He said he suspected that a hard object, including a male sex organ, could have caused the laceration but he intimated that the girl "could have been raped. Baccay said he would rule out any other hard objects "other than a male sexual organ. Although the two lacerations evident at both sides of tissue have healed, Baccay said "it was probable that she was raped at least a week before she committed suicide. He said it was also probable that she might have been MOLESTED earlier. Although the girl was a victim of rape, Baccay said police investigation would still hold on to its theory that the girl had committed suicide. "Westill hold on the angle that it is suicide as there was no struggle observed on the part of Mariannet," he told reporters.Aside from her entries in her school diary and her letter to the television program, Wish Ko Lang of GMA 7, Baccay also showed a page from the girl's notebook on which was sketched a girl inside what looked like a coffin. Thefinal autopsy result said the "cause of death is due to asphyxia by ligature. Dimaantal explained Mariannet "could not breathe because of strangulation. "But it is not yet absolute. Foul play is still a possibility," Baccay said as he announced there would be a long investigation ahead. He said they have expanded their investigation, that could extend to the Ampers relatives, neighbors and Mariannet's religion teacher, adviser, and school principal. Mariannet’s father, Isabelo Sr., and her brothers Isabelo Jr., 20, and Julieto, 18 were questioned by police during a formal inquiry today (Friday). Baccay said part of procedure was for them to take a drug test within the day. Mariannet was found hanging by her younger brother, Reynald, 10.Baccay meantime, also also ruled out newsreports that the girl committed suicide because of abject poverty. "It was a melodramatic portrayal of the media," he said."Dili sila isang kahig-isang tuka," (They are not in subsistence living). He said the Ampers have the necessities although they cannot afford the luxuries in life. "Their parents have cellular phones, they have electricity, they have atelevision set," he said. That they are poor could have contributed to the reasons why she committed suicide, he said.But he added IT WAS WRONG TO CONCLUDE that she hanged herself because of poverty," he said.

Duterte orders probe on Mariannet's pa and brods
Contributed by Walter I. Balane/MindaNewsFriday, 16 November 2007 16:22
DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/16 November) -- Mayor Duterte ordered the police on Thursday night to start questioning” the father and brothers of 12-year old Mariannet Amper, following autopsy results indicatingshe might have been sexually abused.Dr. Tomas Dimaandal, who performed the autopsy on the exhumed remains of Mariannet Thursday, announced theresults in a press conference at the Grand Men Seng Hotel late Thursday afternoon.Dimaandal said they found twowounds in the girl's private part, one located at the left side, described as "shallow healed" and the other at the right side,described as "deep healed."He said she died of “asphyxia by ligature.” She could no longer breathebecause of the strangulation.Mariannet was earlier reported to have been driven to suicide due to her family’spoverty.P/Supt. Matthew Baccay, Talomo police chief, told MindaNews Mariannet died of suicide but the indications ofsexual abuse could have prompted Mariannet to hang herself.The Amper family, however, denied involvement in thealleged foul play.Baccay led a police team to the Ampers' residence in an uphill community in Maa at past 7p.m.Beforethe police arrived, Isabelo Amper, Sr., Mariannet’s father, declined to grant reporters an interview and appealedfor assistance for the family to respond personally to the mayor. "Please understand us, the family agreed to talk first tothe mayor," he said.But the Ampers agreed to talk to reporters when Baccay's team arrived.The father denied raping hisdaughter. He said he couldn't have done that to Mariannet, a daughter who is a baby to the family. He said neither he norhis sons could have done that to Mariannet. The Amper household has three other male members, Isabelo Jr., 20;Julieto, 18; and Reynald, 10.It was Reynald who found her "Ate Mannet" first. His older brother Julieto was the one whoremoved the rope around her neck.Baccay asked the two to reenact what they did on the day Mariannet died. They werelater questioned separately, as were their father and brother Isabelo, Jr.Mariannet’s father, however, said he couldn't pinpoint a suspect. "This shock ed us. We didn't know she wasalready going through this," he said. "She was not telling us about her problems," he said."Na shock mi. Dili ko katoo ngagi rape siya," (We were shocked. We couldn't believe that she was raped).Mariannet’s father said they have bigdogs that would bark at strangers and would attack intruders if ordered so.He also denied a report that a page ofMariannet's makeshift diary was torn to hide the truth.The Department of Education regional office said in theirinvestigation, that Nilda Alasagas, who teaches Pilipino, required her sixth grade pupils to submit a "talaarawan" (diary)written on recycled notebook for submission on November 5.The assignment was for the month of October. Mariannet'sentries were only from October 1 to 25. She died on November 2. Her death was reported only on November 6 when thefamily sought the city government for burial assistance.Mariannet’s father vowed to cooperate with theinvestigators even if he said he was shocked that he and his other sons are now suspects. "Bisan pag akong mga anakang makit-an nga nihimo ana," (Even if my sons did it) he said."Padamgohan nalang unta mi ni niya aron mahibaw-annamo kinsa gyud naghimo ato," (I hope Mariannet will show us in a dream who did it to her), he said.Magdalena, thegirl's mother, came to the defense of her husband and sons."They could not do that to Mariannet. Dili na mabuhat saakong bana kang Maneth. Buoton pud na akong mga anak," (My husband could not do that. My sons are good children,too) she said."Lisud kaayo among kahimtang ani karon uy. Nahutdan na ko og luha para mohilak," (We are in verydifficult times. I have run out of tears), she said.Baccay told MindaNews it is possible that Mariannet hanged herself withno assistance from anyone, after her brothers reenacted what they saw. Earlier in the day, he told a press conference,there was a possibility somebody older helped her, citing Reynald's testimony.He explained that the evening visit wasmeant to be an initial questioning on the new course of their investigation. He said he came to formally inform theAmpers of the results of the autopsy. The Amper family, he said, was asked to visit the Talomo police station today(Friday) to make their formal statements.Duterte ordered Baccay to establish if there was rape and to pinpoint theperpetrators.Baccay said everybody who was in contact with Mariannet is a suspect.

Mariannet could have been molested:
report By Nef Luczon Published : 2007-11-16
Mayor Rodrigo Duterte ordered the police to elevate the investigation on 12-year-old Mariannet Amper from simple SUICIDE to MURDER after the autopsy conducted yesterday indicated she might have been RAPED. Police authorities yesterday invited the Mariannet’s father, Isabelito, for questioning. Chief Insp. Tomas Dimaandal, Regional Scene of the Crime Operatives (Soco) XI medico-legal officer, confirmed that there were lacerations on her genitals that were probably healing for “more than weeks.” “If we based the laceration’s position sa isang relo (on a watch), it’s a three-o-clock to nine-o-clock position,” Dimaandal said. Dimaandal said he found no foul play on the girl’s death. “Hindi siya pilit (There was no force involved). There’s only a single and consistent ligature mark. There’s no sign of struggle or whatsoever,” Dimaandal said. But the mayor is convinced the girl might be raped, though he did not directly pinpoint Mariannet’s father, Isabelito as the prime suspect. “I didn’t say it’s the father who did it but it’s the responsibility of the father kung bakit napabayaan niyang mangyari yun sa kanyang anak (Why he allowed it to happen to his child),” Duterte said. He cited the time difference from the girl’s alleged suicide to the moment the father reported the inwas four days later. Also, instead of reporting to the police, the parents talked to her teacher, which he said was unusual. Duterte also noted the INITIAL REFUSAL OF THE FATHER to submit Mariannet for autopsy to dispel any suspicions of foul play. Meanwhile, Supt. Matthew Baccay, chief of the Talomo Police Precinct, said they already began the investigation last Monday which they will have to change with the autopsy report. “Gagamitin natin yung (Let’s use the) result ng autopsy as lead to our investigation,” Baccay said, “and probably there is an angle of a statutory rape here.” Department of Education (DedEd) spokesperson Jenielito Atenillo claimed that their own investigation found Mariannet to be despondent prior to her death. He said Mariannet’s classmates told them that she suddenly cried without apparent reason and sometimes hid in the comfort room so no one will notice her tears. Duterte took jabs at national government officials and even the media for “romanticizing” the story of Mariannet and making her the poster child of poverty without waiting for the results of the investigation. “The national government should avoid the blame game and not to open their mouths without the facts,” he said.
Mariannet Amper before her TRAGIC DEATH with her brother
Because of the apparent logically controversial nature of the issue, I was so hooked up in the story that had eventually led me to comment in one of the most popular weblog in the Philippines about the issue on Mariannet in which the title of the blog article was “Suicide, Media and Mariannet Amper” and at this point I would like to share with you what happened;
Comment by quiel
Who cares about catholic priest’s attitude towards blessing cadavers of suicide victims? It will not do any good for the poor girl anyways because that cultic practice is not biblical anyways. The catholic church has been around for almost 400 years in the philippines and majority of filipinos are catholics yet our government is heavily infested with graft and corruption. Cory Aquino and Imelda Marcos are catholics yet they have not forgiven each other up until now. The catholic faith is full of hypocricy and deceit, from being idol worshippers to infant baptizers which are very much AGAINST the Bible. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS BEEN VERY INEFFECTIVE IN PRESERVING HIGH MORAL STANDARDS IN THE PHILIPPINES. I am very sorry but that is the truth.

I cant help but to remember a certain catholic fanatic desperately defending her faith. You can read the details of her desperate amoks at;click here
PLEASE CHECK HER OUT
Comment by Noemi
@benj- If presented with a choice, then it’s an informed decision. I believe Mariannet thought this was her only way out. She didn’t think she had a choice. She had no support or intervention. See, these people who feel depressed, hopeless are really asking for help. Young kids are vulnerable and need to be guided. Now if they are adults and have gone through the intervention, meds, and other choices in life, they should know better. Until then, I believe in suicide intervention and prevention. Suicide is a preventable public health problem.
@Quiel- I believe that a few Catholic priests are more progressive now. Except that priest in Davao.
Comment by quiel
Hi Miss Noemi and I wish you good health,
First of all, I really like your blog because of it’s very interesting format and I would like to commend you for that.
You said and i quote(capitalizations mine);“@Quiel- I believe that a few Catholic priests are MORE PROGRESSIVE now. Except that priest in Davao.”MAYBE YOU COULD ELABORATE MORE ON WHAT YOU MEAN BY YOUR STATEMENT “a few Catholic priests are MORE PROGRESSIVE now”. PROGRESSIVE IN WHAT CONTEXT AND WHY USE THE WORD “FEW” WHEN YOU COULD USE THE WORD “MANY”?
Comment by Noemi
@Quiel - I said few because I only 3 priests so far. THe first is my parish street in my old residence. Second, see comment no 21 where Julie heard the sermon of Fr. Jboy in UP Chapel and third, in comment no 22, I quoted Lingayen-Dagupan City Archbishop Oscar Cruz, where he said that there has already been a change in the church discipline on suicide victims due to the advancement of behavioral sciences.
Comment by quiel
I hope you don’t mind Miss Noemi but I would like to share a little tought to you and all the readers of your interesting blog what my views are regarding this issue about children committing suicide.
According to you and I quote (capitalization mine), “I quoted Lingayen-Dagupan City Archbishop Oscar Cruz, where he said that there has already been a change in the CHURCH DISCIPLINE on suicide victims due to the ADVANCEMENT OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES.” The derivative question is CAN THIS (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND ADVANCEMENT OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES REALLY IS THE BIBLICAL SOLUTION TO ALL THIS PROBLEM ABOUT JUVENILE SUICIDES? WHAT DOES THE GOD OF THE BIBLE HAS TO SAY REGARDING THIS MATTER?
Catholics accept the bible as a fundamental reference regarding matters of faith right? As a matter of fact there is a section in a catholic mass about Bible reading so I will safely assume that it is just absolutely proper for us to consult the Bible. I don’t see any problem if we consult the word of God.
Let us ask an analytical question,
IN THE BIBLE, WHAT SHALL WE REALLY DO TO DETER IF NOT TOTALLY ELIMINATE JUVENILE SUICIDES? IS IT REALLY (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISPLINE OR ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES THAT WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM AS WHAT CATHOLIC PRIESTS BELIEVE ACCORDING TO THE STATEMENT OF LINGAYEN-DAGUPAN CITY ARCHBISHOP OSCAR CRUZ ?
Let us now read the Bible,
In the book of Proverbs chapter 22 verse 6 it reads;
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
THE BIBLE IS THEN CLEAR THAT A CHILD MUST BE TRAINED IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO RIGHT?
Let us ask the Bible another question,
WHAT SHALL WE TRAIN A CHILD WITH? ARE WE GOING TO USE ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES AS YOU ARE SAYING OR THOSE (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE MAYBE?
Let us now read the Bible,
In the book of Ephesians chapter 6 verse 4 we can read;
“And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but BRING THEM UP IN THE NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD.”
OBVIOUSLY, WE WILL NOT USE ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES NOR (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE ACCORDING TO THE VERSE THAT WE HAVE JUST READ, WHAT PARENTS MUST DO IS TO BRING THEIR CHILD UP IN THE NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD ACCORDING TO THE VERSE.
Let us now ask another logically valid question,
WHERE CAN WE FIND THIS NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD THAT PARENTS OR ANY RESPONSIBLE GUARDIAN MUST USE IN PROPERLY BRINGING UP A CHILD IN THE RIGHT WAY OR PATH WHERE HE MUST GO?
Let us again consult the Bible,
In the book of II Timothy chapter 3 verse 16 we can read this;
“All SCRIPTURE [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for INSTRUCTION in righteousness:”
SO THE BIBLE HAVE ANSWERED OUR QUESTION, WE MUST INSTRUCT AND TRAIN UP A CHILD NOT USING (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE NOR ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES BUT BY INTRUCTING THEM USING THE SCRIPTURES ACCORDING TO THE VERSE. WHY THEN WILL WE RESORT TO (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES IF GOD CLEARLY TELLS US WHAT WE MUST DO? IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT LINGAYEN-DAGUPAN CITY ARCHBISHOP OSCAR CRUZ IS GROSSLY MISLED.
If we will then use the Holy Scripture in instructing or training up a child in the way he should go instead of (catholic)church discipline and advancements in behavioral sciences according to the biblically unsound statement of Lingayen-Dagupan City Archbishop Oscar Cruz, CAN THE HOLY SCRIPTURE BE SUFFICIENTLY ENOUGH OR COMPLETE TO RIGHTFULLY INSTRUCT A CHILD? ARE (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES NEEDED TO SUPPLEMENT AND COMPLETE WHAT THE HOLY SCRIPTURE HAS TO OFFER?
At this point let us now directly consult the REAL GOD OF THE BIBLE on what does he have to say regarding his scriptures,
In the book of Isaiah chapter 34 verse 16, God himself solidly declares this pronouncement and we read;
“Seek ye out of the BOOK OF THE LORD, and read: NO ONE OF THESE SHALL FAIL, NONE SHALL WANT HER MATE: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.”
DO WE STILL NEED (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES? GOD SOLIDLY DECLARES IN THIS BIBLE VERSE THAT HIS BOOK CAN STAND ALONE AND WE DO NOT NEED (CATHOLIC)CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND ADVANCEMENTS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES ANYMORE!
I have been with this issue about juvenile suicides and I personally don’t like how Philippine media put the blame SOLELY on the government. WHAT THEY DON’T SEE IS THE BIGGER PROBLEM UNDERLYING ITS CAUSE. Its not poverty nor the government as they are only incidental to the REAL AND FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM which is THE MORAL BANKRUPTCY OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE CAUSED BY INEFFECTIVE AND FALSE RELIGIONS DOMINATING THIS COUNTRY. MAYBE ITS TIME FOR US TO DEEPLY ANALYZE AND EVALUATE WHAT KIND OF MORAL STANDARDS DO WE HAVE.
Thank you very much Miss Noemi and I wish you good health and more success. Godbless….

I totally forgot to further nuance my analysis. hehe. Yup, you’re right about that, it’s fair enough to assume that the young lady was unable to process the information well.
Comment by quiel
hey benj, I was not expecting that an atheist like you would also believe in the Bible. I find it very paradoxical is it not benj?
Comment by Noemi
@Quiel- thanks for your views. A big event like this always open doors to study existing government programs. I hope her death wasn’t in vain.
Comment by quiel
Hi Miss Noemi and I wish you good health,
I still strongly believe that what happened to the poor child is not a GENERALLY EPHEMERAL issue because IT ENCOMPASSES ALSO A VERY VALID PREMISE ON OUR MORAL AND RELIGIOUS STANDARDS. It is true that the government is somehow INDIRECTLY accountable for such unfortunate event BUT WHAT WE DON’T SEE IS THE BIGGER AND DEEPER PROBLEM which is THE MORAL ACCOUNTABILITY OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN RIGHTFULLY PREACHING THE MORAL VALUE ABOUT CHARITY AND LOVE OF FELLOWMEN. Our government is run by human persons or individuals because IT WILL BE ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE FOR OUR GOVERNMENT TO FUNCTION WITHOUT THEM. I am absolutely certain that ALMOST ALL of those human persons or individuals running our government HAS SOME SORT OF RELIGION, they could be CATHOLICS or IGLESIA NI CRISTONG TAO NI MANALO, etc.
In the Bible, we can SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFY a distinguishing character of THE TRUE BIBLICAL RELIGION and at this point I just want to share a Bible verse;
In the book of James chapter 1 verse 27 it reads,
“PURE RELIGION and undefiled before God and the Father IS THIS, To VISIT THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOWS IN THEIR AFFLICTION, [and] TO KEEP HIMSELF UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD.”
IT IS THEREFORE CLEAR FROM THE VERSE THAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES A PURE RELIGION OR TRUE BIBLICAL RELIGION UNDEFILED BEFORE GOD AND THE FATHER. IF IT IS PURE AND UNDEFILED BEFORE GOD AND THE FATHER, THEN, IT MUST REALLY BE THE TRUE RELIGION WHICH IS OF GOD!
Let us now then ask an analytically crucial question,
ACCORDING TO THE VERSE, WHAT ARE THE DISTINGUISHING QUALITIES OF THIS TRUE AND PURE RELIGION?
Let us again read the verse for us to answer the question,
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To VISIT THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOWS IN THEIR AFFLICTION, [and] TO KEEP HIMSELF UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD.”
Let us now list down those DISTINGUISHING QUALITIES supplied by the bible verse;
1. VISIT THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOWS IN THEIR AFFLICTION
2. TO KEEP HIMSELF UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD
The bible therefore supplied two distinguishing qualities of a true and pure religion which is CHARITY and CHASTITY and at this point I want to concentrate the discussion to this biblical doctrine called CHARITY.
I know of MANY wealthy catholics in this country. Many of whom can never deplete all their wealth in their entire lifetime, THEY ARE REALLY VERY WEALTHY ACTUALLY. One example is Mr. Augusto Zobel de Ayala, owner of a very influential business conglomerate and one of the wealthiest in the country. Another is Sen. Manny Villar, owner of the Villar group of companies and I could go on and on for me to just enumerate them which means that THERE ARE REALLY PLENTY OF EXTREMELY WEALTHY CATHOLICS IN THIS COUNTRY.
Let us now ask a logically valid question,
IN THE BIBLE, WHAT IS THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRUE BIBLICAL RELIGION FOR ITS WEALTHY MEMBERS? IS THERE ANY?
Let us now get the answer from the Bible,
In the book of 1 Timothy chapter 6 verses 17 to 19 we can read this,
“CHARGE THEM THAT ARE RICH IN THIS WORLD, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all thingsto enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, READY TO DISTRIBUTE, WILLING TO COMMUNICATE; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.”
In the King James Version of the Bible 1611 English Edition the word “communicate” is used in verse 18 but if we will look up the original greek word used in the original greek manuscripts we will find the greek word “koinwnikous” or if we will formally translate it to its closest english word translation we will come up with the word “CONTRIBUTORS” or “CONTRIBUTE”.
ACCORDING TO THE VERSES THAT WE HAVE JUST READ, THE RICH IN THIS WORLD ARE CHARGED BY THE BIBLE TO BE READY TO DISTRIBUTE AND TO BE WILLING TO COMMUNICATE OR CONTRIBUTE. Obviously, THIS BIBLICAL DOCTRINE IS NOT WELL THOUGHT BY CATHOLIC CHURCH LEADERS AND ALL RELIGIOUS LEADERS PRETENDING TO BE AUTHENTICALLY CHOSEN BY GOD TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD! Had this doctrine only be thought by religious leaders very effectively, THE CHANCES OF A CHILD COMMITING SUICIDE BECAUSE OF EXTREME POVERTY WILL BE GREATLY AND SIGNIFICANTLY AVOIDED IF NOT TOTALLY ELIMINATED AT ALL.
THIS ISSUE IS BASICALLY A MORAL ISSUE. IT IS ALL ABOUT MORAL STANDARDS AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AS A MAJOR RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION IN THIS COUNTRY. THE POOR GIRL IS A CATHOLIC AND SO ARE HER PARENTS. HAD THEIR RELIGIOUS LEADERS BEEN EFFECTIVE IN TEACHING TRUE BIBLE DOCTRINE THE POOR GIRL MIGHT STILL BE ALIVE NOW. POOR GIRL SHE HAS A VERY INEFFECTIVE RELIGION…..
I am very sorry Miss Noemi if my statements are a bit strong and hurting but I have no intention of hurting anybody. SOMETIMES WE MUST BRAVELY FACE THE HONEST TRUTH EVEN HOW IT HURTS FOR US TO EFFECTIVELY MOVE ON AND GROW AS A WHOLE PERSON. THE TRUTH MAY HURT BUT THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE…….
May you have a good day Miss Noemi and I wish you more successes and good health.

A certain idiot said this blog is in danger of being hijacked by bible quoting bible as the be all and end all of everything type of argumentation. Apparently this idiot was refering to me because as far as I know I am the only commentator in this blog article to quote the Bible. I dont know if this unfortunate creature HATES the bible or what. This idiot refers to quoting the Bible as hijacking! I cant believe these kinds of lowlife exist.

@quiel- oops I thought it was a double post. Good for you that you know the bible passages. I really need to brush up on it.
@regor- it’s good to have a variety of readers. As commenters in my blog, we agree to disagree.
Comment by regor
I understand the agreeing to disagree part but the assumption that the only truth is the truth in the Bible or stated another way, that salvation can only be through Christ, that is another matter though and that is what, essentially, the bible quoter is doing. What I said was merely an observation or argument against what she is doing and she calls me an idiot? That reflects very well on her beloved religion. May your God bless you with more understanding and the grace of uncertainty regarding matters of faith so that you will understand more the human condition than the certainly you feel about your untested faith.

Like what I said, this idiot commentator accuses the commentator who quotes the Bible as ASSUMING that the only truth is the truth in the Bible or stated another way, that salvation can only be through Christ, that is another matter though and that is what, essentially, the bible quoter is doing. NEVER IN ANY AND ALL MY COMMENTS HERE THAT I ASSUMED SUCH AS HE IS ACCUSING ME OF! If it just so happen that I made Bible quotations here, IT IS IN SUPPORT OF MY ARGUMENT THAT THE ISSUE ABOUT JUVENILE SUICIDE, WHICH IS THE TOPIC OF THIS ARTICLE, CAN BE VERY MUCH LINKED TO THE INNEFECTIVENESS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN PRESERVING HIGH STANDARDS OF MORALITY HERE IN OUR COUNTRY THEN OUT FROM WHEREVER HERE COMES THIS DESPERATE IDIOT ACCUSING ME OF SOMETHING I DID NOT EVEN CLAIM NOR INSINUATED WHATSOEVER! MAYBE ITS HIS RELIGION THAT REFLECT WHO HE IS BECAUSE HE IS A BIG FALSE ACCUSER AND A VERY BIG DESPERATE LIAR!!!
Miss Noemi, I am very sorry if my statements are too strong and frank. I just cant take this desperate commentator FALSELY and MALICIOUSLY accusing another commentator. Im very sorry Miss Noemi….

Hi Miss Noemi!
I would just like to share with you and all the intelligent readers of your very informative blog a certain Bible passage and please let us read.
In the book of Proverbs chapter 6 verses 16 to 19 we can read this;
“These six [things] doth the Lord HATE: yea, seven [are] an ABOMINATION UNTOHIM: A proud look, a LYING TONGUE, and hands that shed innocent blood,An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A FALSE WITNESS [that] SPEAKETH LIES, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
ACCORDING TO THE VERSE THAT WE HAVE JUST READ MISS NOEMI, GOD HATES LIARS AND FALSE ACCUSERS and I cant help but to think of a certain desperate commentator of yours who is a VERY BIG DESPERATE LIAR and also A VERY BIG FALSE ACCUSER. I pity these kinds of people because biblically speaking, GOD HATES THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE LIARS AND FALSE ACCUSERS. NO WONDER THIS COMMENTATOR OF YOURS COMMENTED AND I QUOTE HIS STATEMENT, “I guess it is in danger of being HIJACKED by bible quoting bible AS THE BE ALL AND END ALL OF EVERYTHING TYPE OF ARGUMENTATION”. OBVIOUSLY, THESE PEOPLE ARE VERY MUCH TO BE CATEGORICALLY CLASSIFIED AS ENEMIES OF GOD’S WORD OR THE BIBLE AND THESE PEOPLE REALLY ARE NOT AFRAID OF LYING ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB!! NO WONDER THE GOD OF THE BIBLE HATES THESE KINDS OF VERY UNFORTUNATE CREATURES.

To further prove that this desperate commentator is really A BIG DESPERATE LIAR, he said and I quote him, “…..but the ASSUMPTION that THE ONLY TRUTH IS THE TRUTH IN THE BIBLE or stated another way, THAT SALVATION CAN ONLY BE THROUGH CHRIST, that is another matter though and THAT IS WHAT, ESSENTIALLY, THE BIBLE QUOTER IS DOING….”WHERE IN EVERY CORNERS OF HELL DID HE READ IN ANY AND ALL COMMENTS OF THAT BIBLE QUOTER THAT THE BIBLE QUOTER HAS IN ANY WAY ASSUMED THAT THE ONLY TRUTH IS THE TRUTH IN THE BIBLE AND THAT SALVATION CAN ONLY BE THROUGH CHRIST? WHERE IN HELL DOES THAT COME FROM?The bible quoter that he is refering to DID NOT EVEN MENTIONED the word “CHRIST” in ANY AND ALL of his comments! Can you now blame me why I called this commenter IDIOT when the honest fact is HE IS NOT ONLY AN IDIOT but a very big desperate LIAR!!

I strongly disagree to your false accusations against Quiel, one of the commentors in here. I know why you´re reacting that way for I believe that it´s just your very nature drives you to say that acertain Bible quoter is a “hijacker.” You are an authentic-liar-of-a-kin, dont you know that? I say that because your very nature Regor is the very authenticated-true-copy of the nature of your “father” (John 8:44)______________“44YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a LIE, he speaketh of his own: for he is a LIAR, and the FATHER OF IT.” (KJV)
You are really a copy-cat of your father. Have you not learn a little respect of yourself and to the Holy Scriptures which we highly regard as the Holy Words of God even the God of Israel? Do your religion have not teach you a little faith on God´s words written in the Bible. I presume you weren´t because of your idiotic devilish attitude and unbecoming towards the Bible verses that Quiel has quoted on his comments above. Huh. I pity you regor! I really pity you for you´re such an ignoramus and heretics on God´s words.
Remeber this very principle in thsese very verses: (Matthew 7:16-17)________________“16YESHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a CORRUPT TREE bringeth forth EVIL FRUIT.” (KJV)
You are what your religion is. When your a liar, your religion is like what you are. When you hate the verses of the Bible, truly that your religion hates them too for your person manifested what your religion is, a Bible-hater and a God-hater too (Romans 1:29-31)___________________“29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,30Backbiters, HATERS OF GOD, despiteful, proud, boasters, INVENTORS OF EVIL THINGS, disobedient to parents,31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:” (KJV)
for you are not of God (John 8:47)___________________“47He that is of God heareth God’s words: YE THEREFORE HEAR THEM NOT, because YE ARE NOT OF GOD.” (KJV)
Now that in the same way with Quiel, I am quoting verses of the Bible will be calling me a hijacker too? Oh com’ on, go ahead!
Obviously the poor girl was rejected by his father by denying her justice due her by initially REFUSING to submit Mariannet for autopsy to dispel any suspicions of foul play and according to police reports made after due investigations by police authorities, “confirmed that there were lacerations on her genitals that were probably healing for “more than weeks.” “If we based the laceration’s position sa isang relo (on a watch), it’s a three-o-clock to nine-o-clock position,” Dimaandal said. Dimaandal said he found no foul play on the girl’s death. “Hindi siya pilit (There was no force involved). There’s only a single and consistent ligature mark. There’s no sign of struggle or whatsoever,” Dimaandal said. But the mayor is convinced the girl might be raped, though he did not directly pinpoint Mariannet’s father, Isabelito as the prime suspect. “I didn’t say it’s the father who did it but it’s the responsibility of the father kung bakit napabayaan niyang mangyari yun sa kanyang anak (Why he allowed it to happen to his child),” Duterte said. He cited the time difference from the girl’s alleged suicide to the moment the father reported the inwas(incident) four days later”. WHY WOULD A FATHER NOT BE CONCERNED WITH HIS OWN DAUGHTER’S JUSTICE BY REFUSING TO ALLOW POLICE AUTHORITIES TO CONDUCT AN AUTOPSY WITH THE POOR GIRL’S CADAVER? WHAT IS HE TRYING TO CONCEAL? WHY DID IT TOOK FOUR COLD DAYS BEFORE THEY FINALLY REPORTED THAT THEIR DAUGHTER KILLED HERSELF WHEN SHE WAS SEEN HANGING FROM THEIR OWN HOUSE FOUR DAYS EARLIER? IT IS VERY CLEAR BASED ON THE AUTOPSY OF THE YOUNG GIRL’S CADAVER THAT IT WAS INDEED A CASE OF STATUTORY RAPE AND IT IS VERY OBVIOUS FROM THE REACTIONS OF THE GIRL’S FATHER THAT HE REALLY TRIED EVERYTHING TO CONCEAL WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO HIS DAUGHTER. A “NORMAL” FATHER WOULD DO EVERTHING TO BRING JUSTICE TO THE CAUSE OF HIS CHILDREN BUT MARIANNET’S FATHER IS WILDLY DIFFERENT, HE DOES NOT WANT TO COOPERATE IN BRINGING JUSTICE TO HIS OWN DAUGHTER’S CAUSE! EVEN AFTER HER DEATH HER FATHER IS STILL REJECTING HER!
But luckily the girl died without inflicting FATAL aftermaths to other people as a result of being rejected by her own father. She just kept the INTENSE PAIN inside until it was TOO UNBEARABLE to contain. SHE HAD CUT HER LIFE SHORT BY HANGING HERSELF INSIDE THEIR HOUSE WITHOUT CAUSING THE DEATH OF INNOCENT VICTIMS AS A RESULT OF HER FATHER’S REJECTION. The reason why I mentioned this is not because I am happy that the young girl died but because I do know some NOTORIOUSLY FAMOUS persons who had caused much HARM to other people of LETHALLY CATASTROPHIC proportions as a result of their father’s rejection. They are ADOLF HITLER and JOHN WAYNE GACY.
When we talk of GENOCIDE, MASS MURDER and NAZISM, nothing and no one can ever rival the breathtaking grandeur of the most NOTORIOUS dictator that ever walked on the face of planet earth…. ADOLF HITLER!
Before he was notoriously famous for his KILLER instinct of gigantic proportions by MURDERING almost 17 million souls he also was once a small boy child. But his childhood was short of practically being called HELL.
The small boy child Adolf Hitler VIOLENTLY BEATEN by his own father few years later
Hitler had a TROUBLED childhood, as his father was VIOLENT to him and VIOLENT towards his mother. Hitler himself said that, as a boy, he was often BEATEN by his father. Years later, he told his secretary: "I then resolved never again to cry when my father whipped me. A few days later I had the opportunity of putting my will to the test. My mother, frightened, took refuge in front of the door. As for me, I counted silently the blows of the stick which lashed my rear end". Some historians believe a history of family violence committed by his father against his mother is indicated in a section of his book Mein Kampf in which Hitler describes in vivid detail an anonymous example of family violence committed by a husband against a wife. This along with beatings by his father against him could explain Hitler's deep emotional attachment to his mother while at the same time having deep resentment towards his father. Hitler later said that his educational slump was a REBELLION against his father, who wanted the boy to follow him in a career as a customs official; he wanted to become a painter instead. This explanation is further supported by Hitler's later description of himself as a MISUNDERSTOOD artist. After Alois died on 3 January 1903, Hitler's schoolwork did not improve. At age 16, Hitler dropped out of high school without a diploma.
Unfortunately, Adolf Hitler was resilient enough to have survived his father’s TORTUROUS physical, psychological and verbal ABUSE on him. In fact, he even managed to become a head of state! He was the ruler of Germany from 1933 to 1945, serving as Chancellor from 1933–1945 and Führer (head of state) from 1934–1945.
Hitler’s administration was one of the most BLOODIEST and DEADLIEST in Germany. He tried anything and everything to be at the highest echelons of political power even at the cost of many innocent peoples lives. He was also a power grabber like Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo having been instrumental in a failed German Coup D'etat. Encouraged by this early support, Hitler decided to use Ludendorff as a front in an attempted coup later known as the Beer Hall Putsch (sometimes as the Hitler Putsch or Munich Putsch). The Nazi Party had copied Italy's fascists in appearance and also had adopted some programmatical points, and in 1923, Hitler wanted to emulate Benito Mussolini's "March on Rome" by staging his own "Campaign in Berlin". Hitler and Ludendorff obtained the clandestine support of Gustav von Kahr, Bavaria's de facto ruler, along with leading figures in the Reichswehr and the police. As political posters show, Ludendorff, Hitler and the heads of the Bavarian police and military planned on forming a new government. On 8 November 1923, Hitler and the SA stormed a public meeting headed by Kahr in the Bürgerbräukeller, a large beer hall in Munich. He declared that he had set up a new government with Ludendorff and demanded, at gunpoint, the support of Kahr and the local military establishment for the destruction of the Berlin government. Kahr withdrew his support and fled to join the opposition to Hitler at the first opportunity. The next day, when Hitler and his followers marched from the beer hall to the Bavarian War Ministry to overthrow the Bavarian government as a start to their "March on Berlin", the police dispersed them. Sixteen NSDAP members were killed. Hitler fled to the home of Ernst Hanfstaengl and contemplated suicide.
Driven by his thirst for power amidst his frustration to illicitly grab power and having been SUICIDAL for a time, Adolf Hitler managed to pick up the pieces from his FAILURE and go on to become one of the most psychotic tyrant the world has ever known. At the time of Hitler's release from prison, the political situation in Germany had calmed and the economy had improved, which hampered Hitler's opportunities for agitation. Being a shrewd opportunist however, he used people, influential politicians and businessmen in Germany, to gain for himself absolute political power. Having secured supreme political power, Hitler went on to gain public support by convincing most Germans he was their savior from the economic Depression, communism, the "Judeo-Bolsheviks," and the Versailles treaty, along with other "undesirable" minorities. The Nazis eliminated opposition through a process known as Gleichschaltung ("bringing into line"). THIS PROCESS OF ELIMINATION MEANS MURDERING INNOCENT HUMAN LIVES JUST TO ASSURE ABSOLUTE POWER AND FOR THE REALIZATION OF HITLER'S PSYCHOTICALLY TWISTED IDEOLOGIES. One of the foundations of Hitler's social policies was the concept of racial hygiene. It was based on the ideas of Arthur de Gobineau, a French count, eugenics, a pseudo-science that advocated racial purity, and social Darwinism. Applied to human beings, "survival of the fittest" was interpreted as requiring racial purity and killing off "life unworthy of life." Hence, the birth of one of the most DEADLIEST period in human history, THE HOLOCAUST.
Tightly based on Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, natural selection and eugenics, the Holocaust was one of the most FRIGHTENING period in human history as it was a GENOCIDE of approximately six million European Jews during World War II, as part of a program of DELIBERATE EXTERMINATION planned and executed by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi) regime in Germany led by Adolf Hitler. Other groups were also persecuted and killed, including the Roma; Soviet civilians, Soviet prisoners of war; ethnic Poles; the disabled; homosexual men; and political and religious opponents. Most scholars, however, define the Holocaust as a genocide of European Jewry alone, or what the Nazis called the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question." Taking into account all the victims of Nazi persecution, the total number of victims would be between nine and 11 million.
A mass grave inside Bergen-Belsen, the holocaust systematically killed a broadly estimated 17 million human lives.
The slaughter was systematically conducted in virtually all areas of Nazi-occupied territory in what are now 35 separate European countries. It was at its worst in Central and Eastern Europe, which had more than seven million Jews in 1939. About five million Jews were killed there, including three million in occupied Poland and over one million in the Soviet Union. Hundreds of thousands also died in the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Yugoslavia and Greece. The Wannsee Protocol makes clear that the Nazis also intended to carry out their "final solution of the Jewish question" in England and Ireland. Anyone with three or four Jewish grandparents was to be exterminated without exception. In other genocides, people were able to escape death by converting to another religion or in some other way assimilating. This option was not available to the Jews of occupied Europe. All persons of recent Jewish ancestry were to be exterminated in lands controlled by Germany.
A child dying in the streets of the crowded Warsaw Ghetto, where hunger and disease killed 43,000 in 1941 alone.
The number of victims depends on which definition of "the Holocaust" is used. Donald Niewyk and Francis Nicosia write in The Columbia Guide to the Holocaust that the term is commonly defined as the mass murder, and attempt to wipe out, European Jewry, which would bring the total number of victims to just under six million — around 78 percent of the 7.3 million Jews in occupied Europe at the time. Broader definitions include the 220,000 Roma and Sinti, and the 200,000 disabled and mentally ill who were killed, because these groups were also targeted for eradication. A broader definition still includes political and religious dissenters, two to three million Soviet POWs, and 5,000 to 15,000 gay men, bringing the death toll to nine million. This rises to 11 million if the deaths of 1.8 to 2 million ethnic Poles are included. The broadest definition would include Soviet civilians, raising the death toll to 17 million.
But like the title of one of my favorite song by Ms. Barbra Streisand “Some Good Things Never Last”, Hitler’s insanity was abruptly cut by an EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL DEFEAT. With this very painful defeat Hitler’s SUICIDAL TENDENCY uncontrollably consumed his whole being and a very COWARD LOSER surfaced on him. HE HAD FINALLY AND SUCCESSFULLY MET HIS VERY TRAGIC DEATH. Hitler took up residence in the Führerbunker on 16 January 1945 where he presided over a rapidly disintegrating Third Reich as the Allies advanced from both east and west. By late April Soviet forces had entered Berlin and were battling their way to the centre of the city where the Chancellery was located.
On 22 April Hitler had what some historians later described as a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN during one of his military situation conferences, admitting defeat was imminent and Germany would lose the war. He expressed his intent to KILL HIMSELF and later asked physician Werner Haase to recommend a reliable method of SUICIDE. Haase suggested combining a DOSE OF CYANIDE with a GUNSHOT TO THE HEAD.
Hitler had a supply of cyanide capsules which he had obtained through the SS. Meanwhile, on 28 April Hitler learned of Heinrich Himmler’s attempt to independently negotiate a peace treaty. Hitler considered this treason and began to show signs of PARANOIA, expressing worries the cyanide capsules he had received through Himmler's SS were fake. He also learned of the EXECUTION of his ally Mussolini and vowed not to share a similar fate. To verify the capsules' potency he ordered Dr. Haase to try them on his dog Blondi and the animal died as a result.
After midnight on 29 April, Hitler married Eva Braun in a small civil ceremony in a map room within the bunker complex. Antony Beevor states that after hosting a modest wedding breakfast with his new wife Hitler took secretary Traudl Junge to another room and dictated his last will and testament. He signed these documents at 04:00 and then retired to bed (some sources say Hitler dictated the last will and testament immediately before the wedding, but all sources agree on the timing of the signing).
Hitler and Braun lived together as husband and wife in the bunker for less than 40 hours. Late in the morning of 30 April, with the Soviets less than 500 metres from the bunker, Hitler had a meeting with General Helmuth Weidling, commander of the Berlin Defence Area, who informed Hitler the Berlin garrison would probably run out of ammunition that night. Weidling asked Hitler for permission to break out, a request he had made unsuccessfully before. Hitler did not answer at first and Weidling went back to his headquarters in the Bendlerblock where at about 13:00 he got Hitler's permission to try a breakout that night. Hitler, two secretaries and his personal cook then had a light lunch consisting of spaghetti with light sauce, after which Hitler and Eva Braun said their personal farewells to members of the Führerbunker staff and fellow occupants, including the Goebbels family, Bormann, the secretaries and several military officers. At around 14:30 Adolf and Eva Hitler went into Hitler's personal study.
Some witnesses later reported hearing a LOUD GUNSHOT at around 15:30 (the Goebbels' young son is said to have declared, "A bull's-eye!", or "A direct hit!" thinking it was a bomb overhead). After waiting a few minutes, Hitler's valet Heinz Linge, with Bormann at his side, opened the door to the small study. Linge later stated he immediately noted a scent of burnt almonds, a common observation made in the presence of prussic acid, the gaseous form of cyanide. The Hitlers were both sitting on a small sofa, Eva on the left, Adolf to her right. Eva's body slumped away from Adolf's. Hitler appeared to have SHOT HIMSELF in the right temple (there was an exit wound towards the top, left side of his head) with a Walther PPK 7.65 mm pistol which lay at his feet. BLOOD DRIPPING from Adolf's temple and chin had made a large stain on the right arm of the sofa and was pooling on the floor/carpet. Eva had no visible physical wounds and Linge assumed she had POISONED HERSELF.
Hitler made headlines around the world when he finally met his tragic death.
Unlike Hitler’s TERRIBLE KILLER INSTINCT which was a TOLERABLE German government program during that time which means that it was indeed an open and indiscreet public knowledge as it is happening, JOHN WAYNE GACY’S tragic life story was extremely different for he KILLED so many people stealthily as the public embraced him as an admirable public figure.
JOHN WAYNE GACY is one of the most notorious SERIAL KILLER in American history. He was convicted and later EXECUTED for the RAPE and MURDER of 33 boys and young men between 1972 and his arrest in 1978, 27 of whom he buried in a crawl space under the floor of his house, while others were found in nearby rivers. Like Mariannet and Hitler he was also rejected by his own father at a particular point of his vulnerable life. He had a TROUBLED RELATIONSHIP with his father, an ALCOHOLIC who ABUSED him and called him a "sissy”, A REJECTION THAT ULTIMATELY DESTROYED HIS LIFE.
Undeniably, based on the preceding tragic life stories of Mariannet Amper, Adolf Hitler and John Wayne Gacy, these three vulnerable victims had fallen prey to an invariably common denominator, ALL OF THEM WERE REJECTED BY THEIR OWN FATHER AT A PARTICULAR POINT IN THEIR LIFE WITH LETHALLY TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES.
This issue is a very sensitive issue and is about the RELATIONSHIP OF A FATHER TO HIS CHILD. More than the PHYSICAL aspect science really has no concrete explanations regarding these matters on a PHYSICALLY OBSERVABLE scientific perspective. Science can only SPECULATE through physical behaviors and statistical studies the MOST PROBABLE control areas and heuristic applications but can NEVER address specific guidelines on how these tragic consequences can be effectively minimized if not eliminated. THIS ISSUE IS A MORAL ISSUE NOT A SCIENTIFIC ONE AND SCIENCE ALONE CANNOT SOLVE THIS IDENTIFIED PROBLEM AREA! If we will attempt to solve the problem through scientific methods and procedures WE WILL CERTAINLY FAIL and let me justify my statement;
After his execution, Gacy's brain was removed. It is currently in the possession of Dr. Helen Morrison, who interviewed Gacy and other serial killers in an attempt to isolate common personality traits of violent sociopaths; however, an examination of Gacy's brain after his execution by the forensic psychiatrist hired by his lawyers revealed NO ABNORMALITIES. Dr. Helen Morrison further states,
“I believe and continue to believe that what we don’t know about John Gacy is more vast than we will ever imagine in my lifetime or in yours.”
If we will then use science alone to solve the problem WE WILL THEN CERTAINLY FAIL! Science is limited and can never explain everything contrary to what ATHEISTS believe that it can. SCIENCE CANNOT EXPLAIN EVERYTHING TO THE UTTER DISMAY OF ALL ATHEISTS WHICH FOR ME ARE PRACTICALLY IDIOTS. It is therefore clear and a PROVEN FACT that scientific knowledge is VERY LIMITED and cannot be relied upon entirely.
But something happened more than 2,000 years ago long before science’s boastful scientific breakthroughs were discovered, long before the field of forensic psychiatry and the table of chemical elements were scientifically formulated and long before human beings have known the science of modern psychiatry. More than 2,000 years ago somebody wrote something and at this point I just want to share to you what it is. Written in an ancient manuscript dated roughly 2,000 years ago in Koine Greek I have read this scriptural text (formally translated from Koine Greek to English);
“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
The scriptural text above clearly is talking about FATHERS NOT PROVOKING THEIR CHILDREN TO ANGER and is talking about bringing them up in the discipline and instruction of a certain “LORD”. Why is this someone who wrote this scriptural text commands fathers to not provoke their children to anger? Is it just coincidence that he has already known the LETHALLY CATASTROPHIC effect of a fathers rejection to his own child? Where does this scriptural text came from?
Actually the scriptural text above came from the Bible which is in fact almost 3,700 years in the making and had only been finished more than 2,000 years ago. This INTRIGUING scriptural text came from a letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians in chapter 6 verse 4 which says;
“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
WHAT INTRIGUES ME THE MOST IS THAT EVEN BEFORE THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF MODERN PSYCHOLOGY WERE FORMULATED BEING A VALID BRANCH OF MODERN SCIENCE AND WAY LONG BEFORE FREUDIAN THEORIES WERE THOUGHT BY MODERN HUMAN BEINGS HERE IS THIS ANCIENT SCRIPTURAL TEXT MORE THAN 2,000 YEARS OLD EFFECTIVELY SUGGESTING A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH IN PREVENTING THOSE LETHALLY CATASTROPHIC RESULT OF A FATHER’S REJECTION OF HIS OWN CHILD.
We must not only look on human brain's chemical imbalances and material interactions alone. WE MUST ALSO LOOK ON WHAT IS NOT PHYSICAL. MAYBE ATHEISTS MUST ALSO LISTEN TO WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY IN THE BIBLE. There is no God anyways according to them. What will they lose if they believe. Maybe if all fathers in this world, including the father of Mariannet Amper, Adolf Hitler and John Wayne Gacy were effectively thought of the Bible by their INCOMPETENT religious leaders then maybe there will be no Mariannet Amper, Adolf Hitler and John Wayne Gacy and there will be no gory bloodsheds and murders.

THE DOCUMENTARY VIDEOS BELOW ABOUT JEFFREY DAHMER IS NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART. THIS CAN BE THE MOST SHOCKING DOCUMENTED MURDER CASE YOU WILL EVER KNOW. IF YOU ARE NOT USED TO THESE KINDS OF MATERIALS PLEASE STOP AT THIS POINT BECAUSE I AM WARNING YOU, THIS IS EXTREMELY DISTURBING!
But during his sentence something changed, and before his death, Dahmer went on MSNBC with his father. When asked what contributed to his new accountability, he told his father, "Thanks to you for sending that creation science material."
In the interview Dahmer acknowledges that he once believed in the evolution theory which "cheapens life". He went on to testify to the Lord Jesus Christ being the true Creator and accepting Him as his Savior.
LIKE DAHMER, MANY TODAY ARE BEING INFLUENCED BY THE CHEAPENING OF LIFE PROMOTED BY THE EVOLUTION THEORY. RACISM, COMMUNISM, NAZISM AND ANARCHY ARE ALL EFFECTS OF THIS DANGEROUS THEORY. EVEN THE KILLERS IN THE COLUMBINE SCHOOL MASSACRE WORE SHIRTS THAT BLARED, "NATURAL SELECTION". EVOLUTION IS A PERILOUS RELIGION WITH FATAL SOCIETAL CONSEQUENCES.
After the murders, the Oxford Apartments at 924 North 25th Street were demolished; the site is now a vacant lot. Plans to convert the site into a memorial garden failed to materialize.
Lionel Dahmer published a book in 1994, A Father's Story, and donated a portion of the proceeds from his book to the victims and their families. Most of the families showed support for Lionel Dahmer and his wife, Shari. He has retired and resides with his wife in Medina County, Ohio. He consults on the creation-evolution controversy occasionally, and his wife was a member of the board of the Medina County Ohio Horseman's Council. Both continue to carry the name Dahmer and say they love Jeffrey despite his crimes. Lionel Dahmer's first wife, Joyce (Flint), died of cancer in 2000 at the age of 64. She was later buried in Atlanta, Georgia. Dahmer's younger brother David changed his last name and lives in anonymity.
Dahmer's estate was awarded to the families of 11 of Dahmer's victims who had sued for damages. In 1996, Thomas Jacobson, the lawyer representing eight of the families, announced a planned auction of Dahmer's estate to raise up to $1 million, sparking controversy. A civic group, Milwaukee Civic Pride, was quickly established in an effort to raise the funds to purchase and destroy Dahmer's possessions. The group pledged $407,225 including a $100,000 gift by Milwaukee real estate developer Joseph Zilber for purchase of Dahmer's estate; five of the eight families represented by Jacobson agreed to the terms and Dahmer's possessions were destroyed.
In January 2007, evidence surfaced potentially linking Dahmer to Adam Walsh's 1981 abduction and murder in Florida. True crime writer Arthur Jay Harris, who investigated the case for years, found evidence that Dahmer was in the same mall where Adam was killed and may have had access to a blue van. New Times columnist Bob Norman checked out Harris' investigation and also came to believe that Dahmer was the chief suspect.Most recently, ABC's Primetime featured the theory in a half-hour segment, airing Harris' findings to a national audience. However, Adam's father, John Walsh, believes that another serial killer, Ottis Toole, committed the crime.

A HIGHLY CELEBRATED RELIGIOUS SCANDAL IN THE PHILIPPINES: THE EXCOMMUNICATION OF DANIEL "PUTO" VERIDIANO AND THE INTRUSION OF A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT
He cared for nothing more than a PENIS ENLARGER he bought from the House of Condom in Singapore on a credit card NOT HIS OWN.
He also cared for nothing more than a change of face from one that looked like a bicycle’s seat to one of a handsome-looking elite.
Lastly, he also cared for nothing more than an identification card sporting the name of the highest official of the church organization he belonged to – one that he would BETRAY later on and charge of RAPE in order to materially survive.
All of these have been his passport to stardom – a spotlight he shares with his new organization, the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) with all the attention of the International Crime Police Organization or INTERPOL.
DANIEL VERIDIANO, alias PUTO, the man for whom the Interpol would mobilize to catch his enemy is now the man of the hour – thanks to an all-powerful church group in the Philippines he is now a part of.
The common denominator to Puto and the INC is that they have the same enemy – Eliseo Fernando Soriano – the walking bible who readily says a mouthful about religions he had examined to be deceiving people and whatever he sees as evil. No matter that the constitution of the Interpol says it doesn’t involve itself in crimes that do not overlap several member countries in order to maintain as politically neutral a role as possible, Eliseo Soriano’s name is suddenly in its list. Puto’s enemy and the INC’s enemy seems well-taken care of. From a rape case that Puto concocted, helped by his Iglesia ni Cristo, they have him secure on a “Red Notice” of the Interpol according to an INC report.
Wikipedia quotes the constitution of the Interpol that this organization’s work focuses primarily on public safety, terrorism, organized crime, war crimes, illicit drug production, drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, human trafficking, money laundering, child pornography, white-collar crime, computer crime, intellectual property crime and corruption. Granted that Soriano had committed the crime of rape, it doesn’t come up yet to any of these crimes listed that would involve the Interpol.
Puto must be laughing at everyone since he, himself only mocked up the rape charge. Suddenly it leads to an international watch by a most respected body. Whoever had that posted there must have prepared a most believable report. But that is not the concern of Puto as his godfathers in the Iglesia ni Cristo have everything prepared for him. He only has to keep mouthing lies against Soriano and he gets to continue with his new-found job - a ready source of income to maintain his new face and high living, and perhaps to continue with his gay sexual pursuits.
PUTO'S CONFESSION OF RAPE and pilfering of church collections. Puto mentioned only 9 of his victims. When he was told that 14 complained as having been molested by him, he answered, "Hindi ko na matandaan." (I cannot anymore recall.) He wrote this confession in his bid to be forgiven and be re-considered, yet he kept mum about his wild purchases.
By now, the length and size of his penis have become common knowledge to the public. Over at YouTube, the videos describe his organ as really large. His rape victims demonstrate an open “O” with their thumb and pointer finger. They say it is 5-and-a-half inches in length but the size has become their problem because when he forced his penis into their anus, it was really painful.
Penis enlarger as an item had caught the attention of the church administration when receipts began coming in for the credit card Puto used beginning July 30, 2002. It is hardly an item for church use. It showed a grossly irresponsible shopper who was already going out of his way from the doctrines being preached by Soriano. When asked about the penis enlarger, he said that the preacher had asked for it.
Initially, the shopping list showed many luxury items for food, health and sports and even if the amounts were superfluous, it did not quite alarm the Administration. Puto went from city to city and in one day, he could be in several places with his spending spree to include Baguio, Manila, Olongapo, Pampanga, Davao, and even outside the country like Singapore.
Puto was allowed to purchase materials for emergency use for his office, which is why he had access to an extension credit card, but he went loose. What appeared to be just a fancy buy when he included unauthorized purchases for his medication from Healthy Options and GNC Live Well, and sports outfits from Toby’s, led him from one thing to another. He probably wore the most expensive brief hereabouts and he bragged to his friends that they cost thousands. Just like the luxury items he wore, he told his office mates that they came from the preacher. From purchasing Botox treatments to expensive information technology (IT) items, cameras, watches and clothes, he got bolder and bolder that he took on expensive holiday trips to tourism beaches to dream up a life he did not rightfully deserve. He was testing the limits of the extension credit card.
Secretly, Puto had long been riding along an identification card that he had prepared himself as head of the Attendance Monitoring System, which is why the purchases under that name did not immediately take concern. For the name on that ID, he printed that of the preacher. For the photograph, he pasted that of his newly minted face. The signature, he had the gold finger for that.
NEW FACE AND STOLEN IDENTITY. Puto made an ID placing himself as producer of Breakthrough, a program in UNTV. As people in UNTV are acquainted with him, he would use this ID for secret transactions. Yet this same identity he had stolen belonged to the man he would one day betray - Bro. Eliseo Soriano.
With the credit card, it was like he could buy anything we wanted at every turn – shades, watches, jewelries, shoes, clothes, dinners with friends, you name it. A sensible man would be satisfied with one watch for a long, long time, just as he would with some shades. But he was not. It was like every week, he needed a new pair.
Puto thought the banks were his very own wallet. His favorite were the Metrobank and Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) where he could draw cash advance with the credit card five times to a total of PHP 90,000 in just one day. And then he would shift to other branches to do the same after two or three days. While Onesimus Men’s sells expensive clothes, mostly barong (intricately designed from Philippine native jute), they were chicken to Puto. Groceries on the credit card sounded like he was supplying a big 24/7 convenience store. He didn't even hide the fact that when he shopped, he included the carts of the department store up to his own vehicle. Still single, it was like he was feeding a big party all the time as reflected in his grocery lists. Those lists also projected someone running frequently for medical needs.
PUTO'S PENIS ENLARGER, the item that got the Administration's eye on him. This photo was taken after he left for Boracay, a popular beach resort in the country, and complaints against him were beginning to pile up. The metal-looking part is a manual pump provided with a connector. The large, tall glass comes with the set. Advertisements on penis enlarger say it can work the penis up to 3 inches larger.
Puto loved jewelries so much like he has many hands and neck to adorn, but he appeared to be buying gifts for himself and for others too. The list of Puto for 2003 just for watches and jewelries showed the following in Philippine Pesos: Swatch, 800; Swatch, 3,500; Swatch, 13,600; Lucerne, 6,400; A. Rialto 39,697.00; Montre watch, 26,620; A. Rialto 18,800; A. Rialto 14,776; Venice jewelers, 40,000; and L. Heng Jeweller (Singapore) 79, 131. For 2003 alone, he spent a total of PHP 243,324.00.
For 2004, his list also showed the following just for watches and jewelries alone: Mossanite, 9,000; A. Rialto 23, 364; Multi Time, 446, 777; Gorriceta karat, 18, 801; A. Rialto, 14,750; and No Curfew, 23,940. For this year alone, and for these items, he incurred PHP 536, 632. In two years time, he bought several watches and fine jewelries from only a few thousands to enormous amounts to total PHP 779,956.
Puto might not have a car but he rode taxis like he could afford any distance on any amount. He might not have a house, but he seemed to have furnished many already from the items he had bought. Like the gay, he is, he frequented much the SM department stores of the country where he had his frequent beauty treatments.
It was on February 20, 2003 that Dermclinic would first work on his face, followed by so many others. No treatment was less than PHP 15,000 on the credit card so that he may have thought of paying in cash and going for more expensive treatments.. Suddenly the cash advances were becoming frequent so that by the time he was found out in 2004, his minted face had spent a fortune. It was after some five months, though - after his change of face - on August 7, 2003 that he bought his penis enlarger in Singapore for PHP 10, 607.93.
THE REAL DANIEL VERIDIANO, alias Puto, on the left before he underwent some facial works - charged to the credit card meant for purchasing church equipment. Soriano excommunicated Puto from the Church of God, International after which Puto joined the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) and filed a rape case against the preacher. The INC had been filing case after case against Soriano even before Puto joined them, which filing continues to this day.
Records show that from 2002 to 2004, Puto had been purchasing IT equipment presumed to be for use of his former office in the ADDCIT (communication, information and technology) with the same credit card. At the rate he was purchasing items, he must have equipped a very sophisticated office well provided with many of the premium gadgets around, but no. By the time he left his office, he alone knows where he had placed most of those items.
It looks like Puto had landed on a new career but one where he had to speak continuously against his one-time benefactor and the “rape” charge is just one of his aces in order to survive and live his expensive style. His use of the credit card ended June 20, 2004, however. When he wrote his confession letter on November 21, 2004 to two Ministers-in-charge (MICs) in his desire to be forgiven, he only admitted “kahalayan” (rape and acts of lasciviousness) to only nine of his office mates and pilfering church collections. There was no mention of what he did with the credit card.
In between these months, from July 2004 where he had no more access to the credit card up to November 21, 2004 when he wrote his confession letter and appeal, he was out of cash or source of money as he reflected on his suspension. Despite what was discovered about Puto, the preacher took care of his medication for kidney trouble and gave him money for that, in the hope that Puto could still change. Puto, himself, talked about that in his video testimony that could be viewed in YouTube.
Puto maybe the luckiest man on earth today. He must be the first to be laughing at how eventually his lie about being raped has gotten the whole world’s notice, least of all the International Crime Police Organization or Interpol. Puto had victimized some 14 of his subordinates from acts of lasciviousness to rape and yet he has gotten scott-free. The only thing the victims were able to do so far was to tell to the world how he had victimized them in YouTube and describe his penis.
The ace in the card of Puto is the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), his new-found group when he could no longer be acceptable to Soriano’s group. For a long, long time, this could only be the solution to his dreams of one day becoming a minster-in-charge (MIC) which was never realized. At one time, in the hearing of his office mates, he had declared that if he doesn’t become an MIC, he may just become an INC.
In Soriano’s group, confessions are appreciated and seen as a sign of repentance. In Puto’s case, however, he only wanted to remain still in his position by hiding some of his acts. The man who used to take the dictates of the Presiding Minister in a laptop saw himself as Secretary General, a power he abused to insert the names of his enemies in circulars that contained the list of those suspended and excommunicated by Soriano. He never had that position, however, as it was occupied by Luzviminda Cruz, a pioneer and one of most trusted aides of the preacher. Yet, Puto saw this opportunity to use a secret weapon to threaten his rape victims with. Once, Puto met a young man from the construction group walking home one day – dirtied with cement and dust. He ordered him to come with him to his room, but there raped him.
After Puto’s appeal to be re-instated to the organization failed, he joined - as he had threatened -the Iglesia ni Cristo. There was a lull here, however. It took him some time to think and connect with those who left the organization for the Iglesia ni Cristo until he finally became one of them. His presence is still felt from time to time in forms of scouting for former brothers to convince them to follow him. He was offering “jobs,” just like the one he holds now, and the job was only to speak against Bro. Soriano. This was revealed by a young boy who used to go around looking for some kilo of rice for his poor parents. He had refused the offer of PHP10, 000 a month just to be speaking against the preacher.
In the few years just before he was to be excommunicated, instead of participating in church activities and listening to the preaching, Puto’s mind was out somewhere. Eliseo Soriano, the Presiding Minister of the church of God, International, is strict, as far as doctrines are concerned, and on the weekly Thanksgiving days placed on Saturdays, the members dutifully gather to study God’s word. At these times, Puto could only be found in vacation spots, mostly in the beaches where he loved to imagine a different life.
In a video testimonial of his friend, Freeman Maynes, he revealed that whenever they traveled far away from the city and nearing the beach, Puto would shout “holocaust,” then shamelessly attack one of them that he would undress forcefully and grab the private parts. This was reported by Maynes who eventually was excommunicated, too, for taking advantage of others. Instead of talking about himself, he revealed more about Puto.
Puto could have stayed on still but money is his weakness – including sex. With his nine years stay in the church, he had not internalized the teachings, even as basic as being truly repentant to be forgiven.
Puto’s portrait is a showcase of what is sordidly happening in the country. For accommodating an organization that lives its life playing with election-hungry politicians with its bloc-voting practice, and allowing its intervention in so many forms, the country’s justice system is expected to be sorely decadent. Already laden with corruption charges as with the Office of the President of the Land, the justice system of the country cannot be expected to be managed well.
While Puto’s new church group had filed case after case against Soriano, they could not come up with something worth the Interpol’s attention. And yet they were able to have his name in the list of persons to be searched. Could there have been an agreement that it would only be up to posting his name and photograph there? One need not ask if that is a dangerous practice because it is. It is not a secret that the Iglesia ni Cristo had come up with as many cases as they wanted to file against Soriano. It is also not a secret that INC members like Rizalino L. Arrabis, a retired US Navy man based in Guam, have been suggesting in newsites for “police officials of all countries to unite, leash and impound Eliseo Soriano.”
Puto saw much of the might of the INC before he joined them. He also knew how much the INC persecuted Bro. Soriano. On February 1, 2002, on a Friday midnight up to the wee hours of the following day, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) under Gen. Reynaldo Wycoco (now deceased), raided the Convention Center of the Ang Dating Daan just on a case of libel filed by the Iglesia ni Cristo. The following morning was to be a Thanksgiving Day of the congregation so that many travelers who already were coming in for the day were disfranchised. These included the old orphans and widows of the church orphanage that was placed at the front part for easy access to the Center. Each of them then began to experience health issues from fright and sudden notice. The men came in full combat gear sporting NBI and surrounded the convention center for several hours. In such gatherings, the members could number some 60,000 on the average in the convention center alone.
After Puto left, the raids of the INC increased, this time targeting Abner Martizano, their minister who had joined Soriano’s group. Martizano could be seen on TV, revealing INC secrets and one of that was the production of comics depicting Soriano in sodomy. While no authors were named in the malicious comics, these were being directed to be distributed by the INC ministers and at that time Martizano was with the Iglesia ni Cristo.
It brought a second raid that happened on December 20, 2005. The local police of Apalit, Pampanga together with INC military men were well prepared. Just at the first gate, they went directly to the cameras and turned them off like they knew beforehand where they were positioned. Apparently Puto had sold them much information.
Once inside, past the second gate, they directed everyone they saw to line up at the Administration building and confiscated their cell phones and cameras. No one was allowed to call anybody. While they did this, some of them banged on the doors at the Strangers Hotel and kicked them, at the same time shouting at the tenants, asking where people hid Martizano.
Today, the Convention Center is still being “inspected” from time to time by the Mayor of Apalit, Oscar “Jun” Tetangco, one who thanked the INC for his election in big billboards.
On October 5, 2005, Otto Macabulos, Asst. Provincial Prosecutor addressed an information to Jesus Manarang, Provincial Prosecutor, Province of Pampanga, that Mr. Soriano is presently facing two counts of rape (no bail recommended) that he filed pending preliminary investigation with the Prosecutor’s office in San Fernando. The information said Veridiano claimed that he was sexually abused on May 17, 2000 at around 1:30 in the afternoon and on June 8, 2001 around 3:00 in the afternoon. The information further said it was physically impossible for the accused suspect (Soriano) to carry out the alleged crimes as there are documents for him of his whereabouts.
The hard evidences given for the rape charge (Ra 8353), page 5 Resolution said: 1) On May 17, 2000 at around 1:30 in the afternoon, Soriano went to the Biological Health Center in Malate, Manila to undergo chelation therapy. It took him about 3 hours and on the basis of records, the respondent was treated at the clinic. After the chelation therapy, he went directly to Lipa city, Batangas for a Bible Exposition which started at 7pm to 11pm. Soriano never left the stage all throughout the event.
Both Dr. Jean Marzan and Dr. Frederick d. Franciso of the Biological Center attested that on such date and at that time, and on the basis of their records, the respondent was treated at the clinic.
The information further said that on June 8, 2001, that Veridiano said he was raped for the second instance at about 3 o’clock in the afternoon, Soriano together with Rico Fernandez at 11:30 in the morning went to the Office of one Ma. Evangeline Veliora in a bank located in Bambang, Manila. They then proceeded to meet a certain Aida Briones, an accountant recommended by Veloira as regards the loan they were applying for. Fernandez, Veliora, and Briones each had written an affidavit to affirm that Soriano was with them that day. These affidavits were notarized by Bernardo Cuaresma on October 21, 2005.
The missing document dismissing the case
The rape case was dismissed on January 26, 2006 penned by Alexandro Lopez, Assistant Provincial Prosecutor of Region III, San Fernando, Pampanga as approved by Jesus Y. Manarang, the Provincial Prosecutor. In part, the document says: “The foregoing facts, together with the rift going on between the INC and the ADD, which we cannot deny, only show that the complainant was indisputably ill-motivated from the inception, and these necessarily, without any scintilla of doubt, substantially affect, if not lessen, his credibility as an unperjured affiant. Wherefore, premises having been considered, the undersigned recommends the DISMISSAL, as he hereby DISMISSES, the complaint for rape filed by Daniel Veridiano against Eliseo Soriano docketed herein as I.S. N0. 05-I-2459 and 2460."
Months later, however, Raul Gonzales, Secretary of Justice, on March 21, 2006, directed Regional State Prosecutor Jesus Simbulan to elevate the records of the rape case to his office. The letter said: "Department of Justice. Memorandum to RSP Jesus Simbulan, ORSP, Region III, Subject: Daniel Veridiano vs. Eliseo Soriano for Rape. Date: March 21, 2006. In the interest of justice, you are directed to elevate the records of above-captioned case to my office. For immediate compliance. Raul Gonzalez. Secretary."
In the transmittal letter of the investigating prosecutor Jesus Manarang who first handled the case, he clearly stated that the records contained all 214 pages, including the resolution rendered by him which dismissed the case. However, when Soriano’s group requested for the copy of the case from the Department of Justice, it claimed that no such dismissal resolution was part of the case. By that time, Prosecutor Jesus Manarang was replaced by Jesus Simbulan who was ordered by Gonzalez to elevate the records to Gonzalez’ office.
No one petitioned for the case to be elevated as no resolution was not yet even filed in the Office of Gonzalez, yet the Secretary of Justice ordered the elevation which is highly irregular. Gonzalez then re-filed this dismissed case in Pampanga as reported by ABS-CBN Online on May 3, 2006. http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/storypage.aspx?StoryId=37521
Missing Supreme Court Reports Annotated (SCRA)
Members of Soriano's group question the way Philippine justice is going: Why is the document dismissing the case missing? Should it be like the missing SCRA where the Iglesia ni Cristo deacons were involved in the killing of 5 Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) students? Why are important documents disappearing from the files of the Supreme Court and that of the Department of Justice when the Iglesia ni Cristo are involved?
In Supreme Court Reports Annotated, Volume 339 dated August 28, 2000, in a decision rendered by Chief Justice Hilario Davide, Jr., on the case “PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES, plaintiff-appellee, vs. JUANITO ABELLA, DIOSDADO GRANADA, BENJAMIN DE GUZMAN, and EDGARDO VALENCIA, accused-appellants”, the four accused in these cases, who are deacons of the Iglesia ni Cristo, were declared guilty beyond reasonable doubt on five (5) counts of MURDER. On page 147, it states -
"There, they were mauled, tortured and beaten by appellants, who were deacons of the INC, as well as by their cohorts, using steel tubes, lead pipes, guns and other blunt instruments. Thereafter they were loaded into the van, which forthwith sped out of the compound; and three days later, or on 10 March 1992, the victim’s bodies were found floating in Pasig River, showing signs of foul play." The Supreme court at that time was headed by Hilarion Davide, popularly known to be a just man.
ABS-CBN on INC payroll?
Puto’s rape claim was published by ABS-CBN Interactive for more than a year. The article was such that only the date was changing. Editors in Soriano’s group began to protest that article, question the leadership of this outfit, and the kind of training its people had. This was made through a news posted online and titled, “Is ABS-CBN Interactive a legitimate news outfit?”
This one-story online site went blank for a time. The rape story was not there anymore but only its masthead. It returned with a vengeance, however, with another name - ABS-CBN Online. As though with malice, the rape story was back and stayed while it lasted. Meanwhile, they twisted the name of the complainant they protected to Pedriano from Veridiano. This emboldened INC posters to keep repeating the rape story in many online sites and fighting for Daniel Veridiano, alias Puto.
The rape story was picked up by Wikipedia that placed it as an integral part of the biography of Eliseo Soriano. This led to some church editors tangling with the Wikipedia staff. When Moriori of Wikipedia was chided for making use of a discredited source like ABS-CBN Interactive, his reply was to this effect: “There are many others I can use. I still have other sources.” Moriori in the end used Manila Standard as source.
Many times over, the rape story was repeated by news outfits like Soriano was convicted already- an overkill that effectively bared their intentions but mostly what group they were linked to. The aspect of its being dismissed was never mentioned - nor was the intervention of the Secretary of Justice. Despite ABS-CBN's background of the case that it reported the first time, there was no mention that their new reporting concerned a dismissed but re-filed case.
Still the questions remain: Who changed the name of Daniel Veridiano to Daniel Pedriano? Was it Raul Gonzalez, the Secretary of Justice who was highly interested in the case and had it refiled although dismissed? Or was it the ABS-CBN to facilitate their year long reporting, protect somebody but continuously destroy Soriano? In the way they treated the material, was that news for the public or an advertisement paid against Soriano? Who is now considered the complainant of Soriano, a Veridiano or a Pedriano?
With the rate Soriano's enemies are going, one cannot miss a relationship with the phoned-in calls to radio programs. As Soriano is abroad serving his international congregation, one suddenly hears his name mentioned by out-of-topic callers, an obvious fisher for his location: “What do you think happened to that Soriano? Where do you think he went? He was charged of rape, you know.” The man on board was heard to shoot back, "Sorry, you are out of topic!"
While Soriano had to exile himself, Soriano's voice could still be heard on radio from his taped programs from 10 o'clock at night to 1 o'clock in the morning over at DZAS and DZRH in "Itanong mo kay Soriano, Biblia ang sasagot" (Ask Soriano, the Bible will answer). To some of the questions asked, he could not avoid telling the truth about the Iglesia ni Cristo. Soriano can also be heard expounding the bible in “ADD by Demand,” a program in TOP Channel of UNTV that recently inked partnerships to make telecasts available in America and Canada. Added to that is www.truthcaster.com and his blog in esoriano.wordpress.com. Soriano is being followed by millions because of his great understanding of the scriptures.
In the website of the US Embassy in Manila on International Religious Freedom Report, the Church of God International, more popularly known as Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is named as an offshoot of the Iglesia ni Cristo. It is not so and never was, and the embassy was informed in 2006 then again in 2007, but the information remained the same. On religions matters, it is consistently claimed that "there is no change," implying that all is well with the country despite what the Iglesia ni Cristo, with the blessings of Office of the President, is doing. For example, The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) under the Office of the President and headed by Ma. Consoliza Laguardia had suspended the program of Ang Dating Daan (ADD or The Old Path) of Soriano many times and at one time on the charges that Soriano uttered "Iglesia ni Manalo" (Church of Manalo) which the complainants said hurts them. However, in Net25's Ang Tamang Daan (ATD), a counterfeit of Soriano’s ADD program, the INC ministers as co-anchors spend a lot of time tearing the minister apart as magnanakaw (robber), mangogotong (extortioner), mangagansto (plunderer), yet the MTRCB allows them to continue.
PREACHER ELI SORIANO in a sign of protest to the kind of justice system obtaining in the Philippines. As a broadcaster, he feels his rights are being trampled upon while unscrupulous others are being protected. This photo was taken while he was filing his case with the Commission on Human Rights. Below are his supporters also joining the protest. Soriano has exiled himself since end of 2005 but his preaching is heard 24/7 in several TV stations local and international.
The ATD program was revealed by Romy Español, an INC minister who got affiliated with Soriano’s group, as a program that was really put up to destroy Soriano at all costs.
In tandem with these irregularities in the justice system, Veridiano is still lucky as in the Bureau of Immigration, he seems to have church brothers working for him. Soriano was eventually placed on a watch list. In the military, Puto would never lack brothers there. The Iglesia ni Cristo had long been displaying their might against the ADD Convention Center which they began to habitually raid, the first being that one from the NBI under Gen. Reynaldo Wycoco in February 1-2, 2002. This was followed by a time when Bro. Soriano left the Center to hold a Worldwide Bible Exposition at the Araneta Center on December 20, 2005. The Local Police and some later on identified as military members of the INC forced their way into the Convention Center, arrogantly marched into the Strangers' Hotel where they thought Martizano, the minister who left their fold, was billeted.
Puto’s victory is capped by the fact that Soriano was able to leave the country, yet the Interpol has his name with them. The Interpol is emphatic, though, that a Red Notice is not an international arrest warrant and that everyone should be assumed innocent until proven guilty. Alfred P. Dalizon, who has strong links with the Iglesia ni Cristo, however, reported on August 17, 2008, in People’s Tonight, a tabloid in the country, that Soriano is branded as a fugitive and is on an international arrest. He had it linked to World News Network, Journal Online of the Journal Group of Publications.
This practice of false reporting sets off other media outfits to pick up the report as legitimate report, it was observed. Were it not protested upon by the editors of Soriano’s group, Dalizon’s story may have created the chain reaction that he seemed to have intended. The editors asked for sanctions on Dalizon by his office, otherwise a protest of bigger dimensions would be forth-coming.
Fresh challenge Soriano reiterated his challenge to debate with Manalo after he had exiled himself towards the end of 2005 - a manifestation that he wanted resolution into all this hounding after him. The immigration officials have him on the watchlist, the Secretary of Justice is highly interested in the mocked-up charge of rape, and although dismissed, had it re-filed. The Interpol has his name on "Search" which an INC supporter banners as an international arrest warrant. To Soriano, all of these have began from the practice of selling and buying of votes.
SORIANO'S CHALLENGE REMAINS: MANALO, LET US DEBATE! Since you have launched the program, “Ang Tamang Daan” on your nationwide TV and radio network.... I have found myself perpetually at the receiving end of vicious smear campaign and character assassination. Characteristic of your designs are trashes and carps from the stinking garbage armory of desperate propagandizing ... like the following:
1) The series of televised and formal endorsement by your supposedly dignified ministers of smut magazines purportedly containing pornographic illustration of my person; 2) The dubious testimonies of the dismissed or suspended workers and members who were lucratively employed in your program purposely to vilify me; 3) The agitation effort directed to our Muslim Filipino brothers to rise up against me by presenting dubious tapes to project that I am personally against them (See images 1,2, 3); 4) Many other morally demeaning and libelous accusations hurled against me. (Manila Times, Mar. 27, 2005)
No conclusion could be made then except that new information on religion in the country has to be made. There is religious persecution in the country – thanks to the penis enlarger that opened a can of secrets from politics, to justice, to immigration, and military connections. More importantly, it has affirmed the role of media that cover these secrets from the eyes of the peering public. For one, why isn’t the murder in cold blood of Marcos Mataro, the UNTV host that left the INC and joined the Ang Dating Daan group not solved despite the fact that the reward had been jacked up to PHP 1.2M? Apparently, media from the INC greatly disinforms the public and covers for those involved.
There is more to tell. But the penis enlarger has told much already.
