  • Stand for what you believe in but not at the expense of others.
  • Support the freedom of religion.
  • Do not impose your religion on others.
  • Give them the choice.

A country that advocates "the separation of church and state" should never support any religion financially.

Do you have an opinion regarding the inconsistency and the violation of the "separaton of church and state"? click to post.

It would be a long and tedious process for a leader who does not want war to fully implement "separation of church and state".
  1. First and foremost would be the dissemination of information as to why there is a need for the adherence to the constitutional provision of the "separation of church state".
  2. Emphasize on (Article III, Section 5) of the constitution: "No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion,"
  3. Make it an educational requirement for schools to explain the need for the "separation of church and state".
  4. Let the religions of the Philippines be aware that the government will stick to this resolution.
  5. From there congress can take over. With the help of God.
Not Islammophobia. Just the truth.png

Most if not all of the Non-Muslims in the Philippines claim that they want the Philippines to uphold the "separation of church and state". The government officials from the President to the Barangay officials parrot the same statement, "we uphold the separation of church and state". But it is all talk. That's as far as it goes. Just all talk.

The Philippines continues to violate its constitution by not upholding the Separation of Church and State. Not a single senator or congressman will stand up against the government's financing of the religion of Islam. Even the Catholic church accepts this. The Jesuit priests even stepped forward and endorsed the Bangsamoro. The Philippines became a country of submissive people. Submissive to the religion of Islam.

The Philippines is the only country in the world (85% Catholic), that created five(5) laws "favoring", "respecting" and "financing" the religion of Islam. Then made it unlawful to finance any other religion. The only country in the world that has a government commission that caters to Muslims only, for the hajj, for madrasas, and the spread of Islam at government's expense, paid by the taxes of non-muslims.

Yet the Muslims cry "ISLAMOPHOBIA". Even most of the Non-Muslims (enablers) are on this band-wagon.

Freedom of religion is a must, as is guaranteed by the constitution but the financing of the religion of Islam must stop.

The Philippines violates the Separation of Church and State in its 1987 Constitution

The Philippines violates the Separation of Church and State in its 1987 Constitution1.

  1. The Philippines violates the preamble of the constitution: "We, the sovereign Filipino people, imploring the aid of Almighty God, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall embody our ideals and aspirations, promote the common good, conserve and develop our patrimony, and secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of independence and democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution."
    • it violates the principle of equality by putting the religion of Islam above other religions.
  2. (Article II, Section 6): The separation of Church and State shall be inviolable.
    1. The government of the Philippines must never violate the "separation of church and state".
  3. (Article III, Section 5): No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed. No religious test shall be required for the exercise of civil or political rights.
    1. "No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion": This means that laws must never be created to favor, uphold, honor, or respect any religion.
      • The Philippines violated this section by creating Republic Act No. 6734 ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao). This region is reserved specifically for Muslims(Moros) the followers of the religion of Islam. The republic act 6734 "RESPECTS" the religion of Islam.
    2. "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.": We have the freedom of religion. the government must respect that.
  4. Article 6, section 29 (2): states "No public money or property shall be appropriated, applied, paid, or employed, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, sectarian institution, or system of religion.."
    1. No law must be created that would finance a religion or financially benefit only the specific followers of certain religions. i.e. Must not financially benefit Christians, Muslims or any followers of any religion.
      • By giving all Non-profit organizations (all religions included if registered) a tax break is not tantamount to a government financing. It is simply a tax break
        • But the government of the Philippines violated the constitution by creating national laws exclusively for the Muslims. Exclusively for the religion of Islam.
          1. Republic Act No.9997, the NCMF. A commission with a yearly governmental budget of over 500 million pesos to serve only Muslims. Public money and property has been and is appropriated for the Muslims(Moros), the followers of the religion of Islam.
          2. Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao - The 1987 constitution violated the law as soon as it was printed. It upheld the religion of Islam. Public property was allocated for Islam. 5 provinces in Mindanao are now allocated for Islam.
          3. The Philippines created Presidential decree 1083 SHARIA LAW: Paid by public money but exclusively for Muslims, the followers of the religion of Islam.

The Philippine government violates all 4 points. The Philippine government financially supports the religion of Islam via the NCMF, the ARMM and now the Bangsamoro. Now the Philippines wants to create an Islamic Homeland for the Muslims in Mindanao, paid for by the Philippine government.

The teaching of religious classes in public schools is permitted with the written consent of the parent so long as it is provided that there is no cost to the government. Religious organizations register with the Securities and Exchange Commission to apply for tax exemption. Registered religions and non-profit organizations are tax exempt but only with the concurrence of a majority of all the Members of the Congress.

Note: The developer of this site (Frank Maletsky), is appealing to all of academia, political leaders, and other religious leaders to say something about this. Whether you are for this violation or against it. Say something. Why does the Philippines favor one religion (ISLAM) over the rest?

Bangsamoro (Moroland) (Moronation): Bangsa: A Malaysian word meaning Nation

As defined by international dictionaries and google: Moro is a Muslim of the Philippines. Muslims are Moros and Moros are Muslims and they are followers of the religion of Islam.

Muslims are not indigenous people. Muslims belong to the religion of Islam. Muslims are comprised of different cultures, races, and different ethnicities all over the world. It is unfortunate that most of the Philippine academia, leaders, politicians and lawyers are brainwashed and think that Muslims or Moros are indigenous people.

The Philippine government financially supports only one religion and that is the religion of (Islam). Those who practice the religion of Islam are called Muslims. The Bangsamoro is run by Muslims.

We will not go article by article or section by section of what the BBL is about. You may peruse over the basic law yourself. Here is the link to the Draft for a law to create the Bangsamoro - 122 pages.

If the BBL is passed it will replace the existing ARMM. The Bangsamoro is a bigger blanket that covers more space and also requires more governmental budget.

This budget is what the Filipino people should be concerned about. The Moro people or Bangsamoro want to be defined as "indigenous Muslims in the Philippines". The Philippine government goes along with this and therefore classifying Muslims in the Philippines as an ethnicity. But there is an intrinsic problem with this definition. It violates the 1987 constitution of the Philippines. Hey, being Muslim does NOT make the person indigenous, being Muslim makes that person a follower of Islam or one who practices the religion of Islam but in no way does it automatically make him/her indigenous. Muslims are not indigenous people.

The Philippine Government claims that The Philippines has the Freedom of Religion and the Separation of Church and State

In 1987 the constitution of The Philippines created the Separation of Church and State

  • As far as the "Freedom of Religion" unquestionably the Philippines protects that.
  • As far as the law of the Separation of Church and State, and whether the Philippines is actually following that law in the constitution, is up for debate.
  • Article VI, Section 29, part (2) states: "No public money or property shall be appropriated, applied, paid, or employed, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, sectarian institution, or system of religion, or of any priest, preacher, minister, other religious teacher, or dignitary as such, except when such priest, preacher, minister, or dignitary is assigned to the armed forces, or to any penal institution, or government orphanage or leprosarium."
  1. In 1987 Executive Order No. 122-A, created the Office of Muslim Affairs (OMA). This office served only the Muslim people and not the non-muslims. This office answered only to the President of the Philippines.
  2. In August 1, 1989 just two years later, The Philippines through Republic Act No. 6734 otherwise known as the Organic Act created the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or ARMM. Non-Muslims are not allowed to participate in the ARMM government. Then referred to Mindanao as Muslim Mindanao
  3. In 2010 the "National Commission on Muslim Filipinos" replaced the "Office of Muslim Affairs". This office still falls under the same umbrella and that is, it reports only to the President of the Philippines.
    • Non-Muslims can't participate in this commission. Non-Muslims can't benefit from this commission and this commission will not serve non-muslims. This commission is funded by the government and answers only to the President of the Philippines.
  • Every year the Philippine government provides a budget (billions of pesos) for both the ARMM and the NCMF. Both of these entities are Muslim Entities. Both religious entities under the religion of Islam (Muslim).
    • So what does this do to Article 2 section 6 which states: The separation of Church and State shall be inviolable.?

Inequality in how The Philippine government looks at Religion

  • The Philippines claims separation of church and state. Meaning not one centavo will go to the support of any religion from the tax payers money or no law will be created respecting an establishment of religion. Yet the Philippines administration and legislature turns around and violates the constitution for the sake of ISLAM.
  1. There is the NCMF (National Commision on Muslim Filipinos) financed by the government. The Muslims belong to the religion of Islam.
    • The government has no existing program to support Iglesia ni Cristo, Aglipayans, Seventh day Adventists, Catholics or any other religion because the government says that it is against the constitution and that it violates the "separation of church and state". But it is OK to financially support the Muslims.
    • The government has the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) for the support of all the indigenous people of the Philippines. Doesn't it bother the government officials that a religion is getting more money than the indigenous people?
  2. Polygamy in the Philippines was illegal for all citizens. But on February 4, 1977, The Philippines created Presidential Decree 1083 to legalize POLYGAMY for Muslims only. There you have it. Polygamy is illegal for non-muslims but legal for Muslims.

Why does The Philippine government financially support ISLAM (the Muslims) and not the other religions?

Financing of islam.PNG
There were no Muslim(Moro) communities in the Philippines prior to the year 1380. And most definitely they were NOT the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu, and Palawan. Moros are Muslims and they are not an ethnicity or indigenous people.

Prior to the arrival of the Muslims, the Datus and the Rajas in each of their own tribal domains or kingdoms ruled. The Tausugs, the Maranaos, the Maguindanaoans , and all the other tribes had their own ancestral domains. None of them were Muslims or Moros.

Never forget that the Moros(Muslims) were the first COLONIZERS of the Philippines. They were the first EXPLOITERS of the Filipino people. The Sultanates exploited the natural resources and the culture of the indigenous peoples. Now they even call the traditional clothing, dances, food, customs, and tools of the tribal indigenous peoples as Moro. They are the true Thieves of culture and natural resources.

  1. 1380 Muslims arrived: History records that Islam arrived in the Philippine (Sulu archipelago) in the year 1380 (14th century). Prior to the arrival of ISLAM, the early occupants of the archipelago practiced Animism (the worship of spirits), Hinduism and other forms of worship. The archipelago was divided into ruling tribes with Datus and Rajas as their chieftains. Commerce was vibrant. A Thriving commerce attracted the Muslim traders to the Sulu archipelago. All throughout the archipelago a vibrant society was already established by the indigenous tribes.
    The conversion of the natives into Islam was gradual. The early Muslim missionaries had the opportunity to gather the tribes under one religion, the religion of Islam. There were other religions but they were not entrenched in politics and governance as Islam was. Islam is not just a religion. It is a way of life and a form of governance.
    So as Islam gained its spread starting from the south to the north, they met no resistance for over 140 years. They colonized the archipelago. Islam enjoyed and prospered in the spread of its religion and its governance by practicing the law of the Qur'an and attaching the title of Sultan to the highest ruler of an area. The sultan (arabic in origin) became a higher position of leadership than the original native tribal titles of Datu and Raja.
    The Datus were already in place as chieftains of tribes before Islam set foot in the Philippines. The earliest history tells the story of a Datu Dinagandan who was a chieftain of Aklan in the island of Panay during the 12th century. Way before the recorded arrival of Islam (year 1380) in the Philippines. These tribes were the ancestors of the current INDIGENOUS peoples of the Philippines. These tribes existed with their own autonomy before the Muslims converted them into the religion of Islam.
    Slave trading was one of the prolific businesses of the Muslims. This even became more prominent after the Spaniards arrived.
    As history would record it. A Muslim Arab from Sumatra named Abu Bakr crowned himself the first official Sultan of Sulu around 1450. He was not even a native of the archipelago.
    To this date these indigenous peoples still wear their traditional garb mistaken for Muslim attire. Many of the tribal traditions were assimilated by the Muslims who now inaccurately call it as Muslim(Moro) originated.
  2. 1521 The Spaniards arrived in the archipelago in 1521 and brought Catholicism (Christianity) with them, Islam confronted competition in the archipelago for the first time. The Spaniards identified the Muslims as Moros because the Spaniards knew the Muslims as Moros. From that moment on Islam no longer had monopoly in the Philippines. This gave the indigenous tribes in the Philippines the opportunity to choose to be Catholic, Muslims, or neither of the two.
    Since the tribal rulers were mostly already Muslims, the rebellions where considered religious. It became a battle between the crescent and the cross. The members of the tribes who continued to maintain the religion of Islam and totally rejected Christianity were chased away from their own villages and most went south. The tribes who remained had to choose to either convert to Christianity, remain as Muslims or stay non-religious but they all had to pledge allegiance to their new Spanish leaders.
    The Muslims who escaped to the southern parts of Mindanao and Sulu did not surrender to the Spaniards. In fact they resorted and invigorated their Slave trading with the Chinese. They traded captured slaves from the populated islands in the Philippines for weapons. Weapons needed to fight the Spaniards.
    This continued on.....
  3. 1898 The Americans came: the Americans and the Spaniard came to an agreement. Spain surrendered the Philippines to the United States for a payment of twenty million dollars. Then signed (December 10, 1898) the treaty of Paris.
    The Americans took over the Philippines in 1898. Not only in part but the entire Archipelago. From Batanes to Tawi-Tawi. Making the sultanates defunct.
    Prior to the signing this Cable message from Pres. McKinley on Nov. 25, 1898 was very explicit: "... to accept merely Luzon, leaving the rest of the islands subject to Spanish rule, or to be the subject of future contention, cannot be justified on political, commercial, or humanitarian grounds. The cessation must be the whole archipelago or none. The latter is wholly inadmissible, and the former must therefore be required."
    By then most of ISLAM has been eliminated from Luzon and the Visayas. Most of the Muslims retreated to the southern island of Mindanao.
  4. 1902 - The Philippine organic act of 1902:
    Section 7. That two years after the completion and publication of the census, in case such condition of general and complete peace with recognition of the authority of the United States shall have continued in the territory of said Islands not inhabited by Moros or other non-Christian tribes and such facts shall have been certified to the President by the Philippine Commission, the President upon being satisfied thereof shall direct Commission to call, and the Commission shall call, a general election for the choice of delegates to a popular assembly of the people of said territory in the Philippine Islands, which shall be known as the Philippine Assembly. After said Assembly shall have convened and organised, all the legislative power heretofore conferred on the Philippine Commission in all that part of said Islands not inhabited by Moros or other non-Christian tribes shall be vested in a Legislature consisting of two Houses – the Philippine Commission and the Philippine Assembly. Said Assembly shall consist of not less than fifty nor more than one hundred members to be apportioned by said Commission among the provinces as nearly as practicable according to population:Provided, that no province shall have less than one member: And provided further, that provinces entitled by population to more than one member may be divided into such convenient district as the said Commission may deem best....Read on...
    Note: This is how the meaning of the word moro or muslim in the Philippines got skewed. This was the jumping board that enabled the members of legislature favoring Islam to define the Muslim Filipino as indigenous people.
    The Americans made the mistake of classifying the indigenous peoples of Mindanao as Moros(Muslims) in 1902, the light at the end of the tunnel was seen by the Muslim people.
    The Americans started the Bureau of Non-Christian Tribes which then later became an independent agency called the commission on national integration (CNI 1957) promoted by the Filipinos after the Americans left.
    During the American colonialism, the word MORO (spanish origin meaning Muslim. Derived from the word Moor) was gradually integrated into government, which the U.S.A. equated to the indigenous non-Christians tribes of Mindanao. The error of referring to the indigenous people as Moro was capitalized by Muslim scholars, to get the Philippine government to define Muslims as indigenous people. Currently in the Philippines the word "Muslim" was incorrectly defined as an ethnicity and as a minority indigenous people. So in effect The Philippine government did not classify "Muslim" as a person who practices the religion of Islam but instead as an indigenous people. From there it all unfolded.
    Note: To this date Muslim advocates continue to lobby the government to hold on to the definition that a Muslim person is an indigenous person regardless of race or tribe.
    Note: Today the Philippines has the NCIP National Commission on Indigenous Peoples and the NCMF National commission on Muslim Filipinos. The NCIP as 16 of the 17 regions of the Philippines reports to the DILG. But the NCMF and the ARMM do not. Both answer only to the President of the Philippines.
    The Muslims or Moros continue to push to regain autonomy and the Islamization of the Philippines. They know that it would just be a matter of time and with continued persistence, the archipelago will be dominated by them again. The Spaniards and the Americans were almost successful in subjugating Islam in the Philippines, but then the following happened:
  5. August 29, 1935: The Americans, were still under the impression that Moros are indigenous people. Governor Frank Murphy wanted to give the Badjaos and Samals a piece of land of their own and declared Lot 290 as Reservation, exclusively for the use of the Moros (Badjaos and Samals), under Proclamation No. 841. Lot 290. Now this place is known as Campo Islam, Zamboanga City.
  6. July 4, 1946: The Philippines gained its independence. It became a sovereign country with its own constitution. The constitution upheld the Separation of Church and State. The religion of Islam was equal to the rest of the religions in the Philippines. The Muslims did not agree. Islam does NOT accept the "separation of church and state".
    Note: When the Americans were developing Southern Philippines, the Moros(Muslims) held back and they were tolerant. However, as soon as the Philippines gained its independence and the government's control was totally under Filipinos, the Moros starting plotting. Development of the southern part of the Philippines continued (started by the Americans). This did not sit well with the Moros. They rebelled and it became almost a religious war. Christians against Moros, the conflict started in the 50's. In the southern Philippines the Juramentado came back and famously led by Hajji Kamblon(Kamlon). He managed to create enough instability to catch the attention of the new Filipino leaders. Kamblon was the catalyst. In 1952 the Sect. of state Magsaysay negotiated for peace with Kamlon. He surrendered in July 31, 1952. As part of the deal the government sent Kamlon to a pilgrimage (hajj) to Mecca. This is how Kamlon became Hadji Kamlon. But two years later, Kamlon was back to his old ways. The peace did not last. Magsaysay, president at this time sent the military's full force to defeat Kamlon. President Magsaysay did not negotiate with the Moros. He believed in UNITY. To the filipinos of that time, Kamlon was a rebel and a terrorist but to the Muslims, he was a hero. The Moro leaders knew that they can't win in battles, so they worked on the presidents of the Philippines after the death of Magsaysay. They lobbied non-stop. They broke a chip in the armor in 1957 right after Pres. Magsaysay died and that's all it took.
  7. June 22, 1957 THE TURNING POINT: Under Pres. Carlos P. Garcia: Commission on National Integration (CNI) RA1888. A 1957 act of Congress established the commission, authorizing it to "effectuate in a more rapid and complete manner the economic, social, moral and political advancement of the Non-Christian Filipinos". Scholarships to universities were granted to Muslims to keep the peace. Filipino leaders thought that this was harmless but to the Muslims this was a great "WIN". This same commission gave Nur Misuari a scholarship to the University of the Philippines. He later became the founder of the MNLF.
    Brainwashed filipinos.jpg
    The Americans are gone and now they can manipulate the Filipino leaders.
    This Act began the FINANCING of the religion of ISLAM in the Philippines.
    This commission was abolished by Presidential decree 690 in April 22, 1975 but replaced by Presidential decree No. 719 May 30, 1975 a more beneficial law towards the Muslims(Moros).
  8. October 11, 1965: The first Philippine official Muslim Community Site was created. Proclamation No. 472, s. 1965: carved out 57,716 square meters off of the barangay of Rio Hondo, Zamboanga City to create the exclusive Muslim Community Site, signed by president Diosdado Macapagal. Again the Filipino leaders thought this was harmless. What's 5.7 hectares? the second big mistake the filipino leaders made.
    Rio Hondo, Zamboanga City became the first recognized official "Muslim" community in the Philippines.
  9. October 21, 1972: The founding of The Moro National Liberation Front or Mindanao National Liberation Front (MNLF): A secessionist political organization in the Philippines that was founded by Nur Misuari. Many attribute the start of the MNLF to the 1968 formation of the (MIM) Muslim Independence Movement by Datu Udtog Matalam, a former governor of Cotabato. The formation of the MIM was stoked by the supposed "Jabidah Massacre" of 1968.
  10. February 7, 1974 Jolo War: Right after the MNLF was organized, they started to amass membership into their militia with the threat of war against the Philippines with the "take over" plan. The AFP began to increase their military personnel in Jolo with the hope to quell the prospect of war. However, the MNLF began their attack and the AFP retaliated. It became the bloodiest war in Jolo, Sulu. This war migrated thousands of refugees into the city of Zamboanga. The aftermath of the war led pres. Marcos to negotiate with the MNLF.
  11. 1975: Creation of SPDA:
    By the Presidential decree 690 april 22, 1975 (ratified by Presidential decree No. 719 May 30, 1975), then President Ferdinand E. Marcos created the Southern Philippine Development Authority (SPDA) which took over the government programs for the Muslims and later became the Ministry of Muslim Affairs and the Presidential Assistance on National Minorities (PANAMIN), which took over the government programs for the Non-Muslim or other tribal groups. One of its main tasks was to integrate into the mainstream of society certain ethnic groups which seek full integration into the larger community and at the same time protect the rights of those who wish to preserve their original way of life beside the larger community.
    • By sheer political influence and the promise of peace the Muslims managed at this time to convince president Marcos that the Muslims were indigenous people.
    • This later became OMA(Office of Muslims Affairs in 1987) and currently NCMF (National Commission of Muslim Filipinos), whose sole purpose is to attend to the welfare of Muslims and spread Islam.
  12. The 1976 Tripoli Agreement: Signed by president Ferdinand E. Marcos.:
    The establishment of Autonomy in the Southern Philippines within the realm of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of the Philippines. Many Non-Muslim Filipinos do not know that Gaddafi was instrumental to the downfall of the Philippines by helping the religion of Islam. Gaddafi strengthened the MNLF and paved the way for the Tripoli agreement of 1976. Before the signing of this agreement Islam like all the other religions in the Philippines were equals. On December 23, 1976, the Philippine government made the religion of Islam superior to all other religions in the Philippines.
  13. February 4, 1977: Immediately after the Tripoli Agreement, Presidential Decree 1083 was signed, effectively upholding Sharia law in the Philippines. This law upheld the FINANCING of Islam in the Philippines and it gave the Muslims the impetus to push forward on the move to take back the Philippines.
  14. 1978 MILF founded by Hashim Salamat: A rift within the MNLF created the MILF. This organization was formally established in 1984 as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. Muammar Gaddafi (leader of Libya) became a longstanding supporter of the MILF after its emergence.
    The commander in chief of the Philippines allows the MILF to have its headquarters in Darapanan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao
  15. 1985 OMA: President Marcos created Executive Order No. 969 which dissolved the PANAMIN and the SPDA and created the Office for Muslim Affairs and Cultural Communities (OMACC). The OMACC catered to the needs of both the Muslim and non-Muslim communities. This met with complaints from the Muslims. The Muslims insisted on the separation of the two offices
  16. EDSA86 1986: People power. People thought and still think that it is was people power. It was Islam power. It was manipulated by the Muslim leaders. Their goal was simple and it was take back Mindanao for starters.
  17. The 1987 Constitution: Declaring Mindanao as "Muslim Mindanao": Under the guidance of President Cory Aquino
    • Not satisfied with the OMACC, because it's activities were limited to only Mindanao, Cory Aquino's administration abolished the OMACC and through three Executive Orders created the Office for the Muslim Affairs (OMA), the Office for Northern Cultural Communities (ONCC), and the Office for Southern Cultural Communities (OSCC). Later in 1997, the ONCC and the OSCC were merged to become the NCIP.
  18. 1989 Organic Act: Republic Act No. 6734 August 1, 1989, creating the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao - ARMM. Finally the Muslims managed to have the Philippines not just finance them but now also give them a territory. The propaganda is working and the push continues. From 5.7 hectares in 1965 to 4 provinces, so far so good.
    These 4 provinces were allocated to the ARMM: Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi
  19. 1991 Expansion: Having two Islamic militias was not enough so Abdurajak Abubakar Janjalani in 1991 founded the Abu Sayyaf Group. To this date this terrorist group creates havoc in southern Philippines.
  20. 2001 Expansion of the ARMM: The Muslims were not satisfied with these 4 provinces, so a second plebiscite in 2001 successfully assimilated the island province of Basilan except for its capital, the city of Isabela. The Muslims however, is ever persistent. Populating the city and gradually islamizing the neighborhood. Whenever, they have a chance another plebiscite is requested. Last 2019 elections, Isabela City was almost assimilated.
  21. 2007 conflict (beheading of 11 soldiers by the MILF): Lead to the "Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain" pushed by MILF which then created the Coined name of the entitiy of "Bangsamoro".
    On August 4, 2008, the Supreme Court of the Philippines issued a temporary restraining order, preventing the Government and the MILF from officially signing the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain, which would conclude all dispute and begin formal talks that would lead to the drafting and eventual signing of a Final Comprehensive Compact between the two groups.
    not satisfied with the decision of the supreme court, negotiations were taken to Malaysia, with the blessing of the president of the Philippines. The president of the Philippines is not just the commander in chief of the AFP but that of the ARMM (the muslims). Since the ARMM reports and answers only to the president of the Philippines. This negotiation continued until they were ready to be re-introduced to the legislature.
  22. 2008: The Muslims through political muscle managed to convince 12 senators (SENATORS AQUlLlNO Q. PIMENTEL, JR., EDGARDO ANGARA, RODOLFO BIAZON, PIA “COMPANERA” CAYETANO, JUAN PONCE ENRILE, FRANCIS “CHIZ” ESCUDERO, JINGGOY ESTRADA, GREGORlO HONASAN, PANFILO LACSON, FRANCIS PANGILINAN, RAMON “BONG” REVILLA, MANUEL “MANNY” VILLAR) on April 23, 2008 to introduce a Federal system of Government, which will guarantee the Bangsamoro a state of its own.
    • The Muslims are always doing their best to attract presidential candidates to embrace this idea of a Federal form of government which will guarantee them a state of their own.
  23. 2008 BIFF: The failure of the BBL to be passed prompted Ameril Umbra Kato to break away from the MILF and form another Islamic militia in the Philippines, the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters.
  24. 2010 NCMF: Constant lobbying by the muslim leaders finally caused the final approval On February 18, 2010, Republic Act No.9997 which Created the National Commission of Muslim Filipinos (NCMF). This Act which is a consolidation of Senate Bill No. 3482 and House Bill No. 4253 was finally passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives on December 16, 2009. This was the evolution of the CNI in 1957 to the SPDA in 1975, to OMACC in 1985, to OMA in 1987 and to finally the NCMF in 1987. The NCMF has the mandate from the president to spread Islam throughout the Philippines with the financial support from the government. This commission serves only Muslims. The FINANCING of the religion of ISLAM just keeps getting stronger.
  25. 2014: The BBL Bangsamoro Basic Law was re-introduced. It was voted on for hearing by the majority of congress in 2015 but defeated in the senate in January of 2016.
  26. 2016: May 11, 2016: Republic Act No. 10817 "it is hereby declared the policy of the State to promote the growth and ensure the integrity and quality of Philippine Halal exports."
  27. 2016: June 30, 2016, the Philippines officially inaugurated the first ever Muslim president of the Philippines. Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.
    • Prior to becoming president Duterte promised his Moro supporters that he would do everything in his power to give them a "Bangsamoro State". He even threatened a revolutionary government.
    • On August 9, 2016, Duterte, threatened martial law. The new president of the Philippines (Duterte) will try to make the filipino people accept bangsamoro by introducing the idea of Federalism. It is a form of government that is enticing to the people. They forget that Federalism is simply a ploy to slip in the Bangsamoro as one of the states of the Philippines as it was introduced in the resolution of the 14th congress.
  28. May 23, 2017: Duterte made his threat true. He declared Martial Law in Mindanao. This was due to the Islamic attack on the city of Marawi.
  29. July 23, 2017: Salaam TV (Philippines) (Muslim TV network) was launched by the office of the President. Financed by the Philippine government.
  30. November 2017: The talk of revolutionary government is surfacing as he originally planned as far back as 2015. Duterte is toying with the idea. Why? Because this can lead to constitutional change towards Federalist form of government where the Muslims will be guaranteed a Bangsamoro Islamic State.
  31. May 30, 2018: Congress passes the new version of the BBL. Specifically stating that a homeland for the moros or muslims will be established. Bear in mind that this is not a homeland for Non-Muslim Filipinos. It is a homeland for the followers of Islam where the Quran and Sharia law rules supreme.
  32. July 26, 2018: President Duterte signed the Bangsamoro Organic Law. The oath of allegiance to the Philippine Republic that was in the ARMM is no longer in the BOL. Sharia and the Quran will rule supreme in the Muslim Homeland and NOT the Laws of the country. Under the BOL, the Bangsamoro region will be composed of the current 5 provinces within the ARMM, plus six municipalities of Lanao del Norte and 39 villages of Cotabato, and the chartered cities of Isabela and Cotabato subject to the approval of voters.
  33. August 22, 2019: President Duterte signed and approved Republic Act No. 11439. An act providing for the regulation and organization of Islamic Banks. This ACT was introduced last July 23, 2018. Constant islamic lobbying finally got it passed.

This march forward will not stop until the Muslims will get what they want, the entire Philippines.

Note: These 4 presidents (Carlos Garcia, Diosdado Macapagal, Ferdinand Marcos, Corazon Aquino), within 30 years have successfully undid what the Spaniards and the Americans accomplished in over 518 years.

The Muslims are always courting and bribing the president of the Philippines to get what they want. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, successfully managed to allow the first introduction of the BBL. Then Benigno Aquino almost successfully passed the BBL into law. The current president Duterte does not talk about BBL anymore, he goes directly into Federalism. Federalism in the Philippines guarantees the Moros an Islamic Bangasamoro State.

The Muslims know that the Philippine government is weak and corrupt specially the presidency. By supporting and electing the right candidate into the office is the key to the Islamization of the Philippines.

Politically supporting the right president is key in winning the battle for autonomy. President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III (2010-2016) was against the "separation of church and state". Aquino was and is still pro Bangsamoro and is willing to do anything to pass the Bangsamoro Basic Law.

None of the presidential candidates for the year 2016 are tackling the issues of the "ARMM" and the "NCMF" which are both violating the constitution. Even if this BBL bill is quelled, another bill in its place will surface later because the Bangsamoro still exists within the ARMM and the NCMF and they all continue to get governmental yearly budget in the billions of pesos.

The current president of the Philippines (2016-2022), Rodrigo R. Duterte is for Federalism which is designed to give the religion of Islam a state of its own. Transforming the current ARMM into an Islamic federal state within the Philippines.

As long as the presidency of the Philippines continues to be in bed with Islam, it is no longer a question as to "if" this bill will pass, it is a question of as to "when" it will pass.


  • The proposed state for the MOROS within the federal system will have this in their constitution:

ARTICLE X
BANGSAMORO JUSTICE SYSTEM
Shari’ah Judicial System, Section 4:
"Under Shari’ah, the penalties for Hudud, plural for Hadd (capital crime) which are seen as crimes against Allah (God) and Qisas, which are crimes against persons, are imposed in the Qur’an."

Muslims: not an Ethnic group or race, Muslims are those who practice the religion of Islam

  • Being a Muslim (Moro) does not make an individual an indigenous person. Being a Muslim (Moro) makes the individual the follower of the religion of Islam.
Being Muslim does not make you indigenous.JPG
These are four Muslims from four different races. But if they become Filipino citizens, the Philippine government will classify them as indigenous. Only in the Philippines.
Muslims are not indigenous people.JPG
Muslims are not indigenous people. They are the followers of Islam.

Muslim (Moro) is not an ethnicity. Muslim by definition is an individual practicing the religion of ISLAM. Not all the Muslim (Moro) people in the Philippines are indigenous. There are several races in the Philippines practicing the religion of Islam and they are Muslim. But not all of them are indigenous. Take the Chinese Muslims in Tawi-Tawi, the Indian Muslim in Zamboanga, or the caucasian Muslim in CDO; all three belong to different races and ethnicity. Also the moros/muslims are preaching that the indigenous people of Mindanao and Sulu are Muslims or moros. They are preaching lies. These indigenous people practice and follow different religions besides Islam.

Case in point via history: Let us take two indigenous tribes as an example. The tausugs of Sulu and the Maranaos of lake Lanao.

Before the Muslims (Moros) arrived in the archipelago, the Tausugs and the Maranaos were non-Muslims (Moros). They practiced their own forms of worship. Most say that they practiced the animistic beliefs and traditions. As history would record it, by the 14th century when the Muslims (Moros) arrived in the Philippines and started to convert the natives to the religion of Islam, these two tribes (Tausugs and Maranaos) were (most of them) converted into the religion of Islam. Not all the Tausugs and Maranaos are Moros but all of them are indigenous people. They were indigenous before they became Moros. Being Muslim (Moro) did not make them indigenous. Being Tausugs and Maranaos made them indigenous.

Somehow, in the twisted minds of the legislators of the Philippines, they now classified all Moro-filipinos as indigenous people.

Muslim scholars, Muslim academia, Muslim politicians, and Muslim leaders will forever continue to break the line that divides religion from ethnicity, race, ancestry and inherited status. They will continue to complicate issues until the dividing line simply becomes a shade of gray. This push will not stop until the world will define the word Muslim (Moro) as an ethnicity and classify Moros as indigenous people.

To the Muslim, governance and religion are synonymous. If a Muslim is within a country that is not Islamic, he will simply tolerate the government. The Muslims in that country will cluster and unite in their unending effort to assimilate that country into their ISLAMIC fold. Time is not a factor.

A Muslim (Moro) is trained from childhood when asked for his/her race, to answer with "I am Muslim".

Here is how the bangsamoro is It's trying to convince legislature that the Filipino-Muslims were the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu, and Palawan

The BBL immediately makes an assumption that all the ancestral lands of the sulu archipelago, Mindanao and palawan all belongs to the Muslims (Moros). They made this assumption and they have the legislature fooled.

Article II section 1 of the BBL defines the bangsamoro people as:"Those who at the time of conquest and colonization were considered natives or original inhabitants of Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago and its adjacent islands including Palawan, and their descendants, whether of mixed or of full blood, shall have the right to identify themselves as Bangsamoro by ascription or self-ascription. Spouses and their descendants are classified as Bangsamoro."
Then Article II section 2 of the BBL talks a little about the indigenous people: "Freedom of Choice. – The freedom of choice of other indigenous peoples shall be respected."

Let me inform you folks. The "natives or original inhabitants" at the time of conquest and colonization were not the bangsamoro people. They were the indigenous people who practiced several forms of worship and one of them just happened to be Islam. Muslims (Bangsamoro) are not indigenous people. They are the followers of the religion of Islam.

Before the introduction of any religion or ideology into the Philippines, the indigenous people already had their own languages, traditions, beliefs and practices. These new introductions or additions simply became part of the original.

The Muslims (Moros) claim that they deserve their own state because they are the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan. WRONG! Muslims (Moros) are the followers of Islam. The original inhabitants were the indigenous people. Muslims are not indigenous people, neither is it an ethnicity. If a tribe converts to Islam and all the members of that tribe become Muslims, it does not make the Muslims indigenous, it only makes the indigenous people in that tribe Muslims. The creation of the bangsamoro is based on the biggest lie in history. They claim to be the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan.

As an added bonus, they will try to re-write history and the meaning of the word "muslim". They will try to claim to be the original inhabitants of the area. They will try to convince legislature at all cost that they are an ethnicity and indigenous to the locality. Last but not the least, convince the masses that Muslim is a race. Hence they coined the word "half-muslim".

This push by the Muslims (Moros) for a state of their own is not just from the Muslims within the Philippines. Other Islamic countries are involved. The country that stands out in full support of the Muslims (Moros) in the Philippines is the country of Malaysia. They have been involved since 2007 with the former president Arroyo.

The religion of Islam should be treated just like any other religions in the Philippines. The Philippines should uphold the "separation of church and state as it is stated in the constitution. The government should not financially support any religion. Giving the bangsamoro a state of its own is a violation of the constitution. It is financially supporting the religion of Islam.

The Philippine Government is religiously biased. To defeat the BBL or Bangsamoro once and for all, legislature must be convinced that the Bangsamoro people were not the original "natives or inhabitants" of the entire Philippine archipelago or the sulu archipelago, mindanao or palwawan for that matter.

To reiterate: The indigenous people were the original "natives or inhabitants" and not the Bangsamoro. The bangsamoro (nation of muslims) people are not indigenous people.

  1. Muslims are the followers of Islam
  2. Moros are Muslims.
  3. Bangsamoro is Nation of Muslims
  4. Bangsamoro Lied when it claimed that they were the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan.
  5. A moro or muslim may be an indigenous person (tausug or other indigenous people) but just by being a muslim or moro does not make anyone indigenous.
  6. The indigenous people were the original inhabitants and just because some of them converted to Islam does not make the Muslims, Moros or Bangsamoro the original inhabitants of Mindanao, Sulu, and Palawan.

Separation of religion and state is not an option for Muslims

Islam is a religion and a form of governance. Muslims are obligated to follow Sharia law. This religious law (Sharia), is what regulates the daily lives of the Muslim. Without Sharia law there is no Islam. Hence, the separation of religion and state or government is not an option for the Muslims. The muslims will contradict this statement by re-routing the topic other quotes in the Quran and and will point out how some Muslims are living in countries without Sharia law. If you follow that discussion format then the topic will get confused because that is what they want. Simply go back and ask the Muslim a simple question: "Can you as a Muslim live without believing and following Sharia Law?"

The expansion of Islam is through conversion and family expansion. Much like any other religion. As most religious groups do, they cluster in communities. For the Muslims (followers of Islam) it does not stop there. The intention is always to take over the community.

Will The Philippines be a more prosperous Country if it is an ISLAMIC country?

There is a great possibility that the Philippines may be a better country if it is an Islamic country. Read this Article.

The Philippines has congressmen and women in a contest to create laws. The problem is, once approved they are rarely enforced. There is an obvious lack of discipline. Maybe Islam can bring that much needed discipline to the country.

What to do to Make the Philippine government follow the "Separation of Church and State"

  1. Remember that this is not a "religious" problem. This is a government problem.
  2. Do not be quiet about this problem. Let others know and be aware of this situation.
  3. Let as many government officials know about this.
  4. Write to your local congress representative.
    • Ask that the ARMM and the NCMF must be repealed. Uphold the NCIP (national commission of indigenous peoples) a non-religions commission created to represent all indigenous peoples of the Philippines.
  5. If you belong to a church, write to the government and ask for a donation to your church. Remind the government representative that you are asking because you just want fairness. If the government is financially supporting the Muslims, why not your church?

Complacency and indifference on the part of other religious leaders fueled Bangsamoro

Sittingonfence.jpg

  • All the religious leaders know that the Muslims are getting financial support from the government.
  • They all know that for the government to financially support the Muslims, is against the constitution of the Philippines and is a violation of Article VI, Section 29, part (2) which states: "No public money or property shall be appropriated, applied, paid, or employed, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, sectarian institution, or system of religion, or of any priest, preacher, minister, other religious teacher, or dignitary as such, except when such priest, preacher, minister, or dignitary is assigned to the armed forces, or to any penal institution, or government orphanage or leprosarium."
  • The religious leaders are sitting on the fence. They do not want to make a decision and therefore doing a disservice to the people.
  • This situation would not have escalated to this stage of almost critical mass had these religious leaders made it their responsibility to educate the people on as to what the "separation of church and state" meant.
    • But they are afraid to criticize the government because they do not want to "offend" the religion of Islam. What they don't realize is that, this is a stand that is not against Islam or the Muslims. But rather a stand against the government for violating the constitution.
    • Islam is a religion of peace and promotes peace. The embedded fear is uncalled for and the failure of the religious leaders to educate themselves and their followers only fuels this fear.

Current Philippines' administration take on the separation of church and state

  • December 19, 2018: As quoted from Alexis Romero (philstar.com): "Using your religion as a platform to attack a person is wrong because of the separation of church and state," Duterte said, referring to a constitutional provision primarily against the establishment of a state religion and against curtailing freedom of religion.
    • Note: Obviously Duterte leans on the "Separation of church and state" to defend himself but decides to violate it when campaigning to give the Muslims a Homeland within the Philippines and financed by the government of the Philippines.
