PHILIPPINES: Politics Of Divine Intervention

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the Philippines, the principle of separation of church and state doesn’t exist in the real world, especially in politics.

With an overwhelming majority of Filipino voters married to their Catholicism, no politician campaigns without invoking Divine Intervention.

The so-called Yellows constantly seek the intercession of their creation of a ”Saint Cory, “ in the hope that the late former President would shower them with blessings, and luck in their quest for public office.

Like many Yellowtards, Vice President Leni Robredo has been to many pray-overs in the company of priests, nuns and the laity.

Long before Presidential candidate Manny Pacquiao entered politics, he had openly declared that he gave up womanizing and other vices to focus on religion, and along the way, calling homosexuals ”worse than animals.”

In the midst of Presidential daughter Sara Duterte Carpio’s pronouncement that she is not seeking a national position in deference to his father who has accepted the Vice Presidential nomination of the ruling PDP-Laban party, her supporters are calling for a nine-day novena hoping that she would have a change of heart.

And now, in the heat of a word war between Pacquiao and Duterte supporter Pastor Quiboloy, the latter has threatened to run for President just so he could debate the boxer-Senator.

Is it time for the Philippines to adopt its own version of the American Pledge of Allegiance: ”One nation, under God?”

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo has just filed a lawsuit against blogger Francis Baraan IV for attempted murder.

The lawsuit stems from a tweet by Baraan in which he said that Robredo should be canonized as a saint. He even asked Saint Leni to “hear our prayers.”

It is common knowledge that only dead people are canonized saints.

WHITE HOUSE UNDERGOES DISINFECTION, EXORCISM!

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Hours after Donald Trump left, sources tell The Adobo Chronicles that The White House underwent an extensive disinfection in preparation for the arrival of its new occupant, President Joe Biden.

The disinfection was considered standard protocol, especially considering that the Trump family as well as key staff had tested positive for the coronavirus.

But in addition to the disinfection, the Presidential residence also went through exorcism to ensure that evil spirits are banished in time before Biden, a Catholic, moved in.

“We hope that all sources of possible infection as well as negativity were taken care of by the twin moves,” a White House spokesperson said.
