Ang Dating Daan members cry foul to GMA docu against Bro. Eli Soriano

Posted on: 06/18/2009

During and just few minutes after Case Unclosed, a program hosted by Arnold Clavio, featured a documentary of the Ang Dating Daan group and the alleged rape charge against Bro. Eliseo Soriano, members and sympathizers of the congregation lead by the preacher are united in crying foul to the said report.

Several sympathizers blogged [1] [2] [3], tweet and posted immediately on Facebook, Scribd and Yahoo Buzz their comments and reactions to the malicious and obviously botched presentation by Clavio of the said case and how it presented on television the practices and history of the Ang Dating Daan group, which is officially registered as Members Church of God International (MCGI).

To the members of the Ang Dating Daan, the resource person interviewed in the program, Daniel Veridiano was the ex-communicated Puto who immediately joined the Iglesia ni Cristo when offered financial protections in exchange of insider information, even to the point of filing false and invented charges against the preacher.

Records showed that Veridiano admitted in a letter and video that he raped and committed lascivious acts against several young men (more than 14 teenage boys) and used Church funds for his personal effects.   Videos of Veridiano admitting his sins are being shown on Bible Expositions hosted by Bro. Soriano when people ask about the said allegation to Bro. Eli [For a more comprehensive account who really is this Daniel Veridiano, click here].

The clamor to mount massive  boycott against GMA Network is also snowballing among members and sympathizers of the Ang Dating Daan and Bro. Eli Soriano.

Kotawinters wrote in her blog that:

“Mass messages had been going around the membership of the Ang Dating Daan (ADD), officially called Members Church of God International (MCGI) calling for the boycott of GMA, one of the greater TV stations in the country … the text suggested boycotting GMA and all its programs, with the information that the Presiding Minister, Bro. Eliseo Soriano is a topic in Case Unclosed, and the resource person is Daniel Veridiano, alias Puto, a former member of MCGI.”

Members and sympathizers of the Ang Dating Daan host is a force to reckon with.  During the last elections, the party list group it supported immediately swept away with at least two seats.   In Luzon region alone, more than 70,000 members attend its weekly Thanksgiving to God in Apalit, Pampanga.  The Ang Dating Daan group, officially registered as Members Church of God International (MCGI), have more than 5,000 local chapters in the Philippines and more than 500 chapters in different parts of the globe.  Every month, not less than 5,000 are baptized in the Ang Dating Daan Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga alone. Figures from other regions and abroad are not yet consolidated here.

Another blogger, Points and Angles asked what makes a “leading media network”? In the words of this blogger:

What Case Unclosed displayed last night was something against a man presumed INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, something against what the supreme law of the land wills. Anyone could invent something and make it a legal case against anyone else. Anyone could make a claim, but not all can prove it. So why sensationalize something unsure, and by a supposed journalist at that.

I wonder what Bro. Eli must feel like, suffering this from his fellow Filipinos, and in the month of June—the month supposedly when 7,107 islands were declared free to enjoy the liberties and rights every human person should.

Report such as this one by GMA Network is not new.  It all boils down to the same campaign that the detractors of Bro. Eliseo Soriano are embarking on: destroy Bro. Eli’s reputation and credibility by inventing lies and charges against him.  Why? Because he’s unstoppable and undeniable.  He is the preacher whom from the very start speaks of the truth, whether you hate him or like him.  For this preacher, he believe he will commit the unforgivable sin should he not preach the Truth and understanding he learned from the Bible.  If he will not speak, who will?

While I am watching the documentary the first thing I notice is that the introduction it self they are accusing Bro. Eli Soriano for the case that daniel veridiano filed.

Secondly the title of the documentary what kind of title is that?

Third thing the copyrights of using the church logo in that said documentary and using the name of the tv program ang dating daan do they have the authority to use it. they said in the documentary that they didn’t get any reply on the side of bro eli. so legally they should not use the church logo and the program of ang dating daan.

eh ang problema jasmine di nya kinuha ang side ni bro eli saka nya binalita, di man nya nasagot ang paratang sa kanya eh ano lalabas sa publiko? kaya di sya fair sa ginawa nya.

To Jasmine,

Definitely yes. In the Congregation, we all know that the accuser, Daniel Veridiano, is a liar. He said he was raped but the truth is that he is the rapist of more than 14 males. He even wrote a letter confessing these sins. But in front of thousands of viewers he blatantly denied that he even wrote that letter. But even without the letter, he even got a video confessing these crimes that he commit. This video showed that he really is a liar.

For your reference about this person, please visit kotawinters.wordpress.com who made an account of this Puto. To quote Ms. Kotawinters, these are her words:

“From the Members Church of God International or Ang Dating Daan, there is a short list of those lining up to discredit Bro. Soriano. They are the excommunicated and they include Daniel Veridiano, alias Puto.

Puto was excommunicated by Bro. Eliseo Soriano upon recommendation by an investigating panel in the Members Church of God International where the preacher is the presiding minister. Puto was reported to have raped some 14 of his subordinates and have appropriated church money for personal needs, two offenses of which he had admitted and confessed on. Upon being turned down in his bid to be re-admitted in the church, he retaliated by joining the Iglesia ni Cristo, a church group that Bro. Eli had exposed for its false teachings.

Puto knew that the INC had over the years been filing case after case against Bro. Eli from libel to frustrated murder to obstruction of justice and others. With Puto going to the INC, the rape case saw many allies lining up to defend him including the Secretary of Justice Raul Gonzalez who had re-filed the case after it was dismissed for lack of evidence. From somebody then cast out by the Church of God for filth – physical and spiritual – he becomes the man of the hour who crucifies his benefactor.

Puto, himself, had long been using an identification card bearing the name of Eliseo Soriano to get things facilitated for himself, including a credit card that got him almost everything he wanted and whisked him wherever he wanted to go. After he was discovered at a time he was also being accused of several rape charges, he found himself without source of income where money is his weakness.

Going to the INC appeared the best alternative for Puto – both to seek revenge and to earn money. The destruction of Eliseo Soriano had long been the dream of the INC ministers as openly manifested in their Ang Tamang Daan program (a poor counterfeit of Ang Dating Daan) in Net25. In that program, they influenced people to get the neck of the preacher by giving details of his daily whereabouts. They instigated the Abu Sayyaf (Moro bandits south of the country) to go after Soriano, claiming that the preacher is against Islam.

The Iglesia ni Cristo is a powerful force to reckon with in the Philippines. With its block-voting practice, their endorsement is being sought for by politicians especially the president of the land. It is not without unfortunate results though. Once the endorsed candidate wins, the backfire is expressed in meddling in government affairs including the justice system. Their endorsements cannot just be found in election time. It also covers presidential appointments to sensitive positions of the land.”

I hope you will realize that really Clavio did a poor research and bad job in his reportage.

you are all defending eli soriano, but have you already proven him not guilty? if you are accusing arnold clavio as being unfair and taking sides, have you yourself done otherwise? …just a thought for you. tnx.

Arnold Clavio, don’t you have any more new ideas to feed people? You want your big Network to catch Pretoria of fish by feeding people spoiled news and features? Why not delve more on the truth, complete your research. Don’t hide in the convenience telling that you didn’t get the other side of the coin. At least, Luchi Cruz Valdez went in Apalit to cover up her stories by making sure that she gets a video of herself with her making faces, but then both of have no sense of justice to exhaust all the possible means and ways just to come up with the truth.

What is your deadline? Who gave you a deadline?

Your program Case Unclosed remain unclosed, that is just what it means to me, no more no less. Those news that you presented remain unsolved because it is just the controversy and the audience share that you are interested in.

I hope you follow the steps of Brother Eli and Kuya Daniel Razon to step up and have “Isang Araw Lang” to do good for your countrymen, be fair enough to present your feature and follow the journalist’s creed.

para sa inyong kaalaman. Yang si ARNOLD CLAVIO ay matagal ng inggit na inggit kay Kuya Daniel Razon. Syempre ba naman, sa itsura, tindig, boses at talento ni Bro. Daniel, ano ba naman ang sinabi ni clavio dun?? eh mas gwapo pa nga si arn-arn sa dyan kay clavio.. kaya dinadamay na nya pati ang relihiyon. inggit na inggit kasi yan. lalo na ng nagkaroon ng Good Morning Kuya program. kasi mga langaw nalang ang nanonood sa unang hirit nila.
