Duterte’s tentacles

MANY in the news media relish the latest miracle at Lourdes, France or the 70th to date attributed to the Virgin Mary there but, will have nothing to do with the hundreds of healings by present-day Christian evangelists such as Benny Hinn, Heidi Baker, Dag Heward-Mills and several others. The Internet is replete with documented accounts of their miraculous healings along with scores of irrefutable testimonies. The startling events showed paralyzed patients rising from wheelchairs and jumping for joy while the blind and the deaf suddenly restored with their sight and hearing. Cancer and kidney patients suddenly fell on their knees and breaking out in stirring shouts of praise and thanks to God As this columnist wrote a month ago, Dag Heward-Mills went for three nights on a healing crusade at the Cathedral of Praise on Taft Avenue with more than fifty persons healed from various ailments from heart conditions to breast tumors. The weekly 700 Club on GMA 7 hosted by Peter Kairuz and Alex Tinsay dramatizes endless testimonies of actual physical, emotional spiritual healings. Benjie Magsino has been leading his Ministry of Healing and Deliverance of the Christ’s Commission Fellowship in delivering others from depression and suicidal tendencies, as well as from massive brain strokes and other serious liver and heart ailments. The real good news of our earthly existence are not in the news headlines. 

His own country has turned out to be the most unsafe part of the world for Atty. Jude Josue Sabio. It is only Presidential Spokesman Atty. Harry Roque who seems to be probably speaking for himself and not for President Duterte when he stated that the Palace has no ill will toward him. Of course, Duterte has much more against the man who has brought the International Criminal Court (ICC) closer to home and triggering a wake-up call for the President still unremorseful over the continuing bloodbath that has characterized his brutal drug war against mostly unarmed drug suspects. The PNP submitted to Congress only 1,005 spot reports from September 2016 to July 2017 involving 1,700 individuals killed, showing that 80% of them allegedly figured in shootouts with police “armed” with rusty .38 revolvers with altered serial numbers. Sabio fears the tentacles of Duterte which he believes to be everywhere will make his life go the way of thousands of victims of EJKs. If Duterte plans to take him out, as probably several of his barbaric diehards have decided to, Sabio can be sure his “execution” would be linked to fabricated criminal acts meant to tarnish his name after he is gone. The PNP and the DOJ charged by law to accord protective custody to petitioners against and witnesses to major crimes but have since been shamelessly subservient to the Chief Executive will offer no refuge to the beleaguered Sabio. Senator Antonio Trillanes has since doubled his security personnel, convinced that he has become a target for assassination after his senate exposes’ on the Davao Death Squad and Duterte’s alleged billions of hidden dollar accounts. He told his friends in media that if he is killed only Duterte could have ordered it. Unlike the European Union and a few international rights groups, the ICC is not easily cowed by the likes of Duterte. Sabio said that there were 10,000 complaints all over the world filed with ICC and that only nine went to trial. He, however, pointed out that the ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda may have found “substance” in his petition after conducting a “careful, independent and impartial review”. Two years ago. Slobodan Milosevic, former president of Serbia and Yugoslavia, died of a heart attack in jail. He was being tried for 70 counts of crimes against humanity and genocide. Six Croatian leaders had been convicted for ethnic cleansing for the slaughter of more than fifty thousand Albanians. In exile, the bloodthirsty former Ugandan strongman Idi Amin facing arrest from the ICC was overwhelmed by the huge evil torments in his soul and was struck by a massive and fatal stroke. With the end of Duterte’s incumbency to which he repeatedly swore, the use of his formidable legal and political resources will cease. Until then this nation will have to learn how to confront another dictator who, unlike Marcos. has openly admitted of being so. 

Please allow this columnist to extend his deep condolences to the family, relatives and friends of the late Fred Paule, an active ministry head of the Harvest Point Christian Ministry at Metroeast Pasig. Suddenly collapsing after a major stroke in his Antipolo home, his wife had rushed him to the Clinica Antipolo where she was promptly made to sign an agreement that compels them to either pay half of the daily hospital costs or face immediate discharge, whether the patient was in serious condition or not. Fred’s loving wife, Virgie, said there was no option for the family but to sign since he was practically hovering between life and death then. As his ten-year work at Dubai ended in the early 80s, Fred found himself renewing a life he thought was meant only for sufficiency, ambition and prosperity. He became an active worker of the Bread of Life Ministry at its church in Metroeast Pasig, He was the gentle and warm husband to his wife, Virgie, and a struggling but dedicated provider for a brood of six. The Lord blessed him with the needed time and opportunity to help nurture his growing family, caring enough for them to bring them all to the Lord. And, he was made of sterner stuff. Through the years, he was the caring and hard-working Church worker who zealously and tirelessly looked after the various needs of the Church, along with those of families in his community in Antipolo. He was the irreplaceable head of the men’s ministry, Men after God’s Image (Magis). He was never deterred - not by foul weather or bad health or lack of transport money - to fill in every need or concern of any distressed member He started a now thriving rice business and many wondered how his lean frame could manage, to cut down on personnel costs, to carry sacks of rice daily. The Lord has blessed his untiring and honest efforts in the Church and in his business with the outstanding and high-paying careers of his children here and abroad. Fred Paule was 75 when he passed on to a much grander life that no mind here on earth could imagine.
