New York, USA — Just before Filipino televangelist Bro. Eliseo Soriano finished discussing a biblical topic to the multitude of members of the Church of God International, he exhibited his desire to fight fire with peace — by blogging about it.
On his newest blog entitled “Backing Up the President by Being Peaceful”, Bro. Soriano continues with his campaign to back-up the President of the Philippines by calling for peace in his land of origin.
The blog was debuted to Church congregants in six of the seven continents, on their regular Thanksgiving to God event on Saturday, February 21, 2015.
On his blog, Bro. Soriano discussed how President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III took his rightful seat in office, listed some of his major accomplishments for the country — and in true Bro. Soriano fashion– listed biblical bases for his sound arguments.
Stressing on the importance of peace, Bro. Eli called for his fellow Filipinos to focus on banding together as brothers, instead of calling for the President’s resignation, especially during times of crises.
“The fate of the gallant SAF44 who died in line of duty was not the fault of the President! Instead of calling for his resignation, let us rally behind him in helping these fallen heroes,” blogged the Filipino televangelist.
An advocate of peace, Bro. Eli Soriano started a five-day, possible record-breaking socio-political trending topic in Philippine’s Twitterverse by coining the hashtag #Noynoyparin — a campaign to support the president amidst calls for his resignation.
The hashtag was supported by thousands upon thousands of Twitter users not just in the Philippines, but in various countries as well. The campaign was published on several local news outfits and blog sites.
Not only did Bro. Soriano start the campaign for peace, he will also spearhead a charity concert for the benefit of the fallen 44’s families and loved ones. Starting the bid of 1 milliion PHP, he called on government officials and concerned citizens to extend a helping hand.
His initial tweet that started the peaceful movement has been retweeted by more than 1,400 times. Bro. Soriano has 72,000 Twitter followers as of writing time.
