State of the Nation Address 2009 and Iglesia ni Cristo Anniversary falls on the same day!

I heard in the news this morning that there will be like 3000 policemen who will secure the HOuse of Representatives in Quezon City for the July 27, 2009 SONA of the President of the Philippines Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. It might be her last SONA - that is if she will not run again for office. I don’t know with you but I am allergic to politics so I might leave it at that.

What can be of good news to a worker like me is that – it falls on the same day with the Iglesia ni Cristo Founding Anniversary and it has been proclaimed yesterday that it will be a non working holiday! Good news yeah?

Iglesia ni Cristo Day a non-working holiday

MANILA, Philippines -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has designated a special day for the Iglesia ni Cristo, a church denomination often approached by politicians seeking its so-called bloc support in elections.

Arroyo declared July 27 as “Iglesia ni Cristo Day,” a non-working holiday commemorating the founding anniversary of the sect.

“President Arroyo wishes to congratulate in advance the INC, at present under the stewardship of Executive Minister Eraño Manalo and Deputy Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo, on this year’s landmark anniversary,” Malacañang said in a statement.

“Likewise, the President wishes to thank the INC for the very active and significant roles its leaders and members have always played not only in the spiritual and moral formation of our people over the past several decades, but in nation-building as well,” the Palace said.

I guess I have no choice but to watch the SONA – I badly need lots of sleep, I know the long talk of GMA will help me sleep faster! ;)
