Ted Failon: Kaya nga po, kaya nga po, but with all due respect, Supt., siguro nauunawaan naman din po ninyo, yung hinuhuli po, itiniwalag ninyo – ng inyo pong simbahan, meron po silang alitan po sa inyong mga pinuno, kayo po ay miyembro ng Iglesiang aktibo, but… Earlier this year, a legal action has been filed against the Philippine Postal Corporation, for its issuance of postage stamps commemorating the 100th founding anniversary of Iglesia ni Cristo, on the grounds that it violates the Constitution on sponsorship of the religious activity.
hindi ko na po pupuwedeng makipag discuss sa inyo yung mga bagay na yan. Ed Leonardo: Naiintindihan ko po yung iniisip ninyo.  Although, until now, the separation between the Church and State is still not clearly defined.
 This separation is stated in our Constitution, under the Declaration of Principles, Bill of Rights, even in the Legislative Department.
 Our country is also known as a secular nation with a constitutional separation of church and state.
Dapat sigurong tanggapin na ng INC itong hamon na debate ni Soriano para matapos na ang sigalot na namamagitan sa kanila.
Hindi biro ang impluwensiya ng INC, di ba mga suki?
The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed. An interesting constitutional question that is provoked is whether or not the issuing of said stamps violates the constitutional ban against the appropriation and payment of public funds for the benefit or support of any sect, church, sectarian institution or system of religion (Section 29(2), Article VI, 1987 Constitution) which is a direct corollary of the principle of separation of church and state (Section 6, Article II, 1987 Constitution).
Ako po mismo ang sasama sa kanya, dadalhin po namin siya sa istasyon para po idokumento.  Although the case has been decided in the US, it could be used as a guideline in Philippine courts. In a 1971 case decided by the US Supreme Court, it is where the “Lemon” test was introduced to determine the involvement of the Church in any Government activities. Ted Failon: Kayo po’y miyembro din ng Iglesia ni Cristo?  It was ruled in favor of the Government, explaining that the purpose and intent of the issuance was not for the benefit of the Roman Catholic Church, but the Government was only taking advantage of the event to raise funds as authorized by the law. Ano ang hawak niyang papel ngayon para arestuhin ka? Nor am I aware of any government event, occasion or activity of public interest or significance to be commemorated thereby. Ano po ang inyong basehan para po arestuhin si Lowell Menorca? Ed Leonardo: Meron po kaming warrant galing po ng Marawi City. I see no legitimate secular objective of the appropriation of public funds for issuing the stamps in question.
