Charice Pempengco nee Jake Zyrus expelled from Iglesia ni Cristo?

 

 

By Boy Villasanta

 During her reign as Charice Pempengco, she was feted no end as one of the pride of Iglesia ni Cristo, as a member one of the most popular religious organization in the Philippines.

            But when she decided to live her life the way she wanted it including her gender preference and adopted the screen name Jake Zyrus, she was easily eased out of the sect.

            “Hindi talaga puwede sa Iglesia ni Cristo ‘yon. Ititiwalag talaga ang isang tao na gano’n(That’s not allowed. A member shall be expelled if he or she is like that),” explained an active and devout member of INC who requested anonymity in Lopez, Quezon recently.  

            The INC brother was referring to the conversion of Charice to a transman as Jake Zyrus which doesn’t sit well with the beliefs and policies of their church.

            According to the INC member, their teachings don’t match the realities which have gravitated Jake’s chosen life.

            Although the INC hierarchy has still to pronounce publicly its decision on the case of Zyrus, the member is certain the international singer isn’t part of their group at the moment.
