LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers…” (James 2:9, the Holy Bible).

VOTE FOR VIGAN CITY AS “WONDER CITY”: May I make an appeal, not only to the Ilocanos out there, but for all patriotic Filipinos who would like to show to the world the beauty that is the Philippines: please vote for Vigan City of Ilocos Sur as one of the new seven wonder cities of the world, by logging on to www.new7wonders.com/en/cities. Vote as often as you can, and ask your friends, associates and relatives to also vote, now!

SETBACK OF DEMOCRACY AND VIOLATION OF THE CHARTER: Once again, there is an attempt to portray the surrender and detention of Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. in connection with the plunder case against him over the P10 billion pork barrel scam as a “triumph of democracy” and a “significant step forward” in the fight against graft and corruption.

In a way, this is only a partially correct description of things. The truth is that it is an overwhelming setback of democratic and constitutional processes, because what all of these show very clearly is the determination of President Aquino and his political allies to trample upon the Constitution and all known rules of fairness and equality to decimate their opponents in the 2016 elections.

For one, the 1987 Constitution says, in its Section 1, Art. III, that no man shall be denied the equal protection of the clause. In layman’s language, this simply means that, in the application of the law in this country, everybody should be treated equally, and no double standards should ever be applied.

PORK CASES: UNMASKING THE AQUINO REGIME AS MORE CORRUPT: Yet, it is very evident that in the investigation, and now in the prosecution, of the P10 billion pork barrel scam, equality is the last thing that President Aquino, Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales observed, as they pounded only on three opposition senators, including Revilla.

The evidence readily available to Aquino, De Lima and Morales in connection with the pork barrel scam, which now constitutes the plunder and graft cases pending before the Sandiganbayan, not only showed the supposed complicity of the opposition senators, but of Aquino’s allies as well, and yet the allies were spared and set free.

Surely, on this score alone, the whole scenario that is unfolding before all of us is as scary as it is farcical: it is not a triumph of justice nor a significant step in the elimination of graft. Rather, it is something that all Filipinos must be very afraid of, because it unmasks the Aquino government as a similarly corrupt regime, if not a regime that is more corrupt than the opponents it is seeking to crush.

FAVORITISM OF THE AQUINO GOV’T: Again, I raise a warning: what the Aquino government has done is a clear case of favoritism which violates the Bible, and, because of this, punishment will come not only on its leaders but also on the entire Filipino nation as a whole. For, in James 2:9, the divine rule is clear: if you show favoritism, you sin.

The same thing is warned about in many other parts of the Bible: Exodus 23:3, Leviticus 19:15, Acts 10:34, Romans 2:11, Galatians 2:6, Ephesians 6:9, Colossians 3:25, 1 Timothy 5:21, James 2:1 and 9. If we take these Biblical admonitions side by side with Deuteronomy 28:15-68, then we can be rest assured that nothing good will ever come out of this pork barrel prosecution. Instead, more curses will come upon us.
