Since 1980, there have been conflicts between Philippine-based Christian religious organizations Iglesia ni Cristo ("Church of Christ", INC) and the Members Church of God International (MCGI), when MCGI Presiding Minister Eliseo Soriano started his radio program Ang Dating Daan (ADD).
Through his program, he discussed biblical issues and "exposed" what he believes to be wrong doctrines of other religious groups, including those of INC.
On August 16, 2004, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) preventively suspended the showing of the Ang Dating Daan program for 20 days due to slander and use of offensive and obscene language by its televangelist-host Eliseo Soriano, as a means of disciplinary action. In 2004, Manny Antonio, a worker (presbyter) of MCGI, and Abraham Cruz, an INC minister, had a signed agreement to meet for a debate conference on April 26 in the city hall of Capas, Tarlac.
On September 27, 2004, the MTRCB extended the suspension to three months. Present on the agreed setting was the mayor of Capas, Rey Catacutan, the representing ministers of INC, Abraham Cruz, Jose Ventilacion, Ramil Parba, Michael Sandoval, and the barangay captain of Pao, San Jose, Tarlac, who stood as the witness of the agreement signing. Manalo, the Executive Minister of Iglesia ni Cristo, to a one-on-one debate on TV and internet.
Beginning with the broadcast of Ang Tamang Daan on June 11, 2001, INC (through SBN 21, and later Net 25, INC TV, and INC Cable TV) and MCGI (through SBN 21 and later UNTV Channel 37) aired their accusations and responses to each other's statements. These demons are lying too much.] In attempts to end the conflict between the two groups, a number of debate arrangements had been in talks on different occasions.
Their television programs contributed largely to the aggravation of their relations. But while there were previous agreements made, no proper debate had actually materialized between the groups due to varying reasons.
At the end of the period covered by this report, the Government and the MILF maintained a cease-fire and continued their peace dialogue, brokered by the Government of Malaysia.
An eventual settlement could include special recognition of Islamic education and Shari'a law, among other provisions sought by some Muslims.
The Supreme Court denied Soriano's motion and affirmed the decision with finality in 2010 by an 11-4 vote, noting that “it is a sanction that the MTRCB may validly impose under its charter without running afoul of the free speech clause." The high court reminded Soriano that his program, being aired on television, is accessible to children of all ages and therefore not appropriate for a program with a “G” or for general audience rating due to his use of vulgar language and invectives. Yung putang babae, ang gumagana lang doon yung ibaba. Soriano views this response as an excuse, while the INC sees his challenge as a bluff.Because the lyrics or the story of the song was very impressive and he liked it a lot! He also may mean that it's his time to make seperate ways with Mary, as much as he did love her. "anyway the wind blows", meaning if it's men or women- it doesn't matter to him."mama, just killed a man.The generally amicable relationship among religions in society contributed to religious freedom; however, there is some ethnic, religious, and cultural discrimination against Muslims by Christians. Embassy discusses religious freedom issues with the Government as part of its overall policy to promote human rights.This, combined with economic disparities, contributed to persistent conflict in certain provinces. The Embassy actively encouraged the peace process between the Government and MILF, while the U. Institute of Peace (USIP) provided some technical assistance.
