Idiotic issue
Published: November 19, 2006 by The Bohol Standard

Still unable to recover from the stinging defeat inflicted on the so-called people’s initiative via an 8-7 squeaker in the Supreme Court (SC), a shadowy group now wants Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban and Justice Antonio Carpio to inhibit themselves from the deliberations on the motion for reconsideration lodged before the High Court. It does not take much to understand that the purpose for this move is to pull out two of the eight votes that buried the people’s initiative, a misnomer because it was obviously an initiative of Palace sycophants. Indeed, you cannot fault the Cha-Cha proponents for not trying. With a little help from the resignation of Defense Secretary Avelino Cruz who correctly predicted that the people’s initiative wasn’t going anywhere, Malacañang has seen the futility of it all and has started to distance itself from any such move. Of course, it does not always follow that the Palace has altogether abandoned not only the idea but also this last attempt to resurrect a dead horse. After the “I will not run” and “I am sorry” episodes, it is hard not to be cynical about pronouncements coming from Malacañang. If this administration’s credibility problem has not reached crisis proportion, we don’t what is. We really don’t know what to believe anymore. There is little respect for word of honor coming from Malacañang these days. Proof of this is that people actually expect the opposite when there are official pronouncements. Nobody can blame them anyway. You reap what you sow. It is indeed pathetic how deep the sense of morality of those wielding power in this administration has sunk. Just several weeks after a survey showed that millions have gone hungry in the last quarter of this year, it seems nobody cares about that anymore. Instead of trying to at least stem the downslide by stop-gap measures while waiting for the more fundamental ones to ripen, it remains a one-way street to that panacea called Charter Change. All roads still lead to the cemetery where the people’s initiative petition has been buried. Unfortunately for them, this absurd petition asking Panganiban and Carpio to inhibit themselves only opens more opportunities for the two gentlemen and the remaining enlightened souls in the SC to let the light in. Only the harebrained can fail to see the ploy intended to take the wind out of the sail that was the SC decision. Sen. Aquilino Pimentel Jr. did not have to think hard looking for a word to describe the motion for inhibition. Without a doubt, it is an “idiotic issue”.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
