Who are the bigger sinners and Judases in our midst?

AS I WRECK THIS CHAIR
By William M. Esposo
Just like Golgotha – the struggle of the Filipino people is one of light versus darkness symbolically, truth versus lie. It is nearly impossible for the oppressed to remove their yoke when they do not even have an inkling of the dynamics that brought them to their sorry state and keeps them there.
The Pharisees, bad King and Princes can also be regarded as Judas Iscariots. But the worse Judas Iscariots are those who consciously create and promote them. In the May 2010 election context, the worse Judases are the interest groups supporting evil candidates, making them viable and the corrupt media persons peddling the lies that promote crooks and killers.
You know what – it’s even unfair to label them Judases. Judas Iscariot was at least a nationalist and a patriot. Judas betrayed Christ hoping to provoke our Lord to use his power and rid Israel of the Roman invaders. Judas was too focused on winning the freedom of his nation that he failed to recognize the essential Christ.
