On the President’s reported apology to God

I can only thank God for enlightening our president to make that humble apology. It shouldn’t matter much if it was my God or his God he is apologizing to, because there is only one God of the universe anyway.

I know there are firm God believers like me supporting his presidency who can now get over with the dilemma of whether or not to continue supporting his leadership.

We can now move on while praying for his continued enlightenment. It takes courage and character for a man to openly accept his mistake and apologize. This was how I knew the president in the many times that I was dealing with him when he was still mayor of Davao City.

I am glad that at the end of the day, he is still how I’ve known him.

On the President’s reported remarks against God

In many conflicts with his political adversaries, I took his side more than I did not, even when sometimes I had my doubts because I believed he was different from all the presidents who led before him.

At times I thought he was God’s gift to a benighted land, hoping the elusive change for the better has finally come to our country under his leadership.

Between him and my God to Whom I pray every single day and with Whom I’ve found solace and comfort in all my difficult times, I don’t even have to think of my choice. May my God forgive him and make him atone for all his sins.
