WHEN God created man in His own image and likeness, He gave us free will, the freedom to make our own choices. But the choices we make have consequences in the here and now and, ultimately, in eternity. One might say that wherever you are in your life right now, it is likely the consequence of your free will, the choices you’ve made, and not entirely because God pre-destined it to be.

THE editorial “Tagle Prodded to Fight” (June 18, 2018) attempts to paint a picture of a “weakened” Catholic Church, cowed by Mr. Duterte’s incessant attack and nearly helpless in defending itself. I could not have read a more ridiculous piece.

A year after Marawi Siege, I must say that even if there has been proliferated news against the government on the issue of security and rehabilitation as various allegation being ensued by interest groups, peace and order is realized in Mindanao. Recently, the AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Carlito Galvez foretold, “People we have spoken to, they love martial law. Peace-loving people have seen the remarkable improvement in peace and order.” They no longer see guns in the streets. Additionally, he stressed out that these firearms are now concealed; adding that 6,000 firearms had been seized by security forces in Mindanao since January.

THE installation of antiship missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on Philippine-claimed islands in the West Philippine Sea should serve as a wake-up call for the Duterte administration to revisit its foreign policy, an independent think tank said.
