INC support for Aquino cut early

Reports say high officials of the Iglesia Ni Cristo reportedly lobbied for the non-impeachment of Merceditas Gutierrez. INC officials were reportedly seen inside a room of a legislator supporting the retention  of Gutierrez as Ombudsman.


Is this true? If it was, what prompted these officials for severing their ties with the Aquino administration and going against Aquino?


Sources say some INC officials have notice a spike in the incidence of graft and corruption in the Aquino administration.


Many pro-Binay and close Aquino associates have lobbied and some, are still jockeying for posts in the government, affecting many members of the INC.


These jockeying of posts are not consistent with government rules. Fact is, many were ousted from their posts by people who claimed to have the "blessing of people in Malacanang".


Complaints have reached the INC leadership. The leadership communicated it with Malacanang. Malacanang reportedly gave no credence to reports of irregularities committed by Aquino's men.


Now, the "honeymoon" period is over. INC is now a critique of the Aquino administration? Are relations between Aquino and the INC now as cold as dry ice? Your guess is as good as mine.


The Iglesia Ni Cristo believed in the words of Aquino---that he will cleanse government of irregularities. Now, the INC knows better.
