KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…`Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand’…” (Jesus, our God and Savior, in Matthew 12:25, the Holy Bible)

ROW AMONG BINAY SIBLINGS TO CAUSE THEIR DOWNFALL? How are we going to treat the on-going nasty and very public verbal tussle between Makati City Mayor Abby Binay Campos and her brother, former Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay? Of course, Abby wants to continue being mayor since the whole nine years that she is supposed to be entitled to under the law has not lapsed yet.

On the other hand, for obvious reasons, Junjun wants to regain his former position as Makati mayor, and replace his dear sister Abby right now. Because of this, they have pulled out all the stops, bringing the two of them to a heated and ugly exchange, in media yet. This has become a feast for all Makati, making their political opponents, especially those who will be running against them in 2019, chuckling in glee.

We should not forget that it has been written in Matthew, Mark, and Luke: a kingdom whose members are disputing with one another is surely headed for destruction and extinction, never to rise again.

Indeed, if the Noynoy Aquino and Antonio Trillanes IV tandem failed to break the Binays before the 2016 elections, the internal wrangling among them will cause their political downfall this 2018-2019.

BINAY IN-FIGHTING: THE START OF THE END OF THEIR POLITICAL REIGN: These kinds of family disputes truly herald the forthcoming end of the world. For one of the signs that had been given to precede the coming of the end is the fight by kingdoms against kingdoms, nations against nations, and families against families. Jesus Himself said that His coming down to earth from heaven in human likeness and form, with flesh and blood, will give rise to in-fighting among families.

Jesus said: “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.  For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law---a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household’…”

“They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law’…”

BINAY SIBLINGS BOTH WANT TO BECOME MAKATI MAYOR: Former Vice President Jejomar Binay and former Makati City Mayor Elenita Binay would be truly grieving with what is currently happening to their offspring. Imagine, their children are now the ones engaged in a “duel to the death” fight over a political position? This promises to  be a very big political and family skirmish not only among the Binays but for the whole of Makati City as well.

Nevertheless, Jejomar and Elenita cannot blame anyone else for this unfortunate clash among their beloved children but themselves. If Junjun and Abby are clawing at each other now because they cannot agree on who should represent their family in the forthcoming local elections in Makati (where they have reigned politically since 1986 yet), it would certainly be a proof that they were not taught the virtue of giving way to their siblings.

If Jejomar and Elenita fail to find a solution to end the fight among their children, this would be the start of their political downfall, especially in Makati. This is a clear signal of the start of the end of the uncontested leadership of the Binays in the city which is now recognized nationally and internationally as the center of business and finance in the whole country. This is such a waste, which we Filipinos are won’t to characterize as “sayang”.
