In the emergence of technology and developments in the current dispensation, a lot of things can be done electronically in an instant. You can shop, pay your bills, do some banking transactions and a whole lot more by using online facilities available on the internet. And oh, people can now also protest and air out their grievances and disappointments online.
August 3, 2011 – Qtv channel 11, a local tv station here in the Philippines replayed an episode on one of their tv programs, case unclosed hosted by Arnold Clavio a reporter here in the Philippines. The episode was first aired on June 18, 2009 on GMA 7 on the very same tv program.
The episode featured a case involving Bro. Eli Soriano a renowned televangelist and Daniel “puto” Verdiano. The episode tackled about the rape case that was previously filed (and dismissed, then resurrected) by Daniel Veridiano against Bro. Eli Soriano. He said that Bro. Eli raped him.
Rape case? (come on!) alright, let us first look into the character and reputation of the two people involved here, first Bro. Eli Soriano. As most of us may know already, Bro. Eli Soriano is a preacher (and the one and only sensible one of our time) who is the Presiding Minister to the Members of the Church of GOD International. He is the host of the religious programs, Itanong mo kay Soriano … Biblia ang sasagot that is being aired from Monday to Sunday and Ang Dating Daan that is being aired every Sunday on UNTV 37 (your Public Service Channel). Currently, he also has extended his preaching with the use of television through other religious programs that he hosts that are being viewed in many countries across the globe. He also spearheads various charitable works such as free feeding programs, free education, free ride, free medical consultation and medication and a whole lot of public services, for free together with Bro. Daniel Razon.
On the other side of the ring – Daniel “puto” Verdiano. He is a former member of the the Church of GOD International. Yes, “former”as in ex-member. Reason: he was found guilty of stealing money from the Church funds and raping various men, yes, you read it right, m-e-n . Now, I would no longer be discussing more about the details as in the – who, what, when, where and how’s of this case since this case is already in the court of justice.
Philippines is a democratic country. I myself have various rights as a Filipino, and one of these rights is the right to choose the television station to watch and not to watch. And for this, chose not to watch any program on GMA 7 and Qtv11. This is because of the injustice that they did to Bro. Eli. In that particular malicious episode featuring the Bro. Eli vs. Daniel Daniel “puto” Verdiano, only the side of story of Puto has been aired. GMA 7 and Qtv 11 have been biased, very biased. Bro. Eli has not given proper time and chance to explain his side of story. They have been unfair very unfair not only to Bro. Eli but to the public, because they have spared the truth from me, from us. And for this, I protest for that untruthful and malicious episode.
Talking about online protest, I wrote this blog to express my disappointment and the cry for justice in favor to Bro. Eli.
I boycott GMA 7 and Qtv11!
