Take this in the true spirit of the beginning of this new month as well as my lame attempt to provide balanced coverage of the top 10 senatorial choices announced by CBCP ‘s Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo. The same Bishop Broderick Pabillo who two weeks ago wanted the faithful to lay off social media.
I will share with you possible thoughts running through the minds of these sterling individuals who were able to pass the rigorous standards as laid out by “a not insignificant group of some 130 lay Christian leaders” . These are possible thoughts from us , on the outside looking in. These are possible thoughts, hopes and maybe even fears as election day draws near. These possible thoughts that may prove them worthy of the People’s Choice Movement’s endorsement since they have the set of “Christian criteria” : Character & Honor; Competence & Abilities; Faithfulness to public service; and Faithfulness to God, the Constitution and the laws desired. I do so with the full spirit of the publication date. Remember, in the immortal words of Al Capone ” we laugh because its funny and we laugh because….. “.

Living the dream!! One can have his cake and eat it too! Being hard core leftist with the endorsement of the Catholic Church is not an oxymoron in the Philippines!

In 2022 if he was the running mate of Bam they could collectively be known as bombshell.

It’s election time. Time to prove sincerity and have his points of view challenged by the Filipino voter and unblock those 4.5 million .Then again he is not thought of as Ken Dryden for nothing.
