July 27, the founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), has been declared a special working holiday through an act of Congress.
If Ramadan, a Muslim feast, is a holiday, why not INC’s special day?
After all, INC is a Christian religion in a country that is predominantly Christian. (Source: Inquirer)
To be precise, the Philippines is predominantly Catholic. And they are estimated to have almost 2 billion worldwide adherents including those Catholics by name only. Islam is next. So why Ramadan is considered a "non working holiday"? It's because they represent the other one third of world's population and Iglesia ni Cristo (1914) doesn't represent even one eight of the majority of the Filipinos.
It's about time? I don't think so.
And who says the INC are Christians? They're a cult!
