    That cult seems to operate a whole lot like Scientology does....except a whole lot more violent.

    I read the article and it said that some armed, presumed Philippine, police, out of their jurisdiction, kidnapped him and then threw a grenade into the back seat of his car but it didn't go off.
    I can hear the conversation now. "The grenade didn't go off sir." "Let me see the pin." "Sorry sir, all I have is a pencil." I know it's not a joking matter but when I read that the grenade didn't go off that is the first thing that went through my mind. I wonder if they pulled the pin. It was not time for him to go I guess.

    My ex attended the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church several times in Makati and I asked her about it, all she would tell me is that they took her Camera from her at the door and told her she was not to talk to anyone about what she saw or heard inside the Church, so refused to discuss with me what she experienced by attending.

    I had talked her out of staying with the PBMA Church she was in when she was in Surigao and I was hoping she would join a 'more mainstream Church' and her friend suggested she go with her to her Iglesia Ni Cristo Church. When I told her NOT to attend the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church anymore, she found another... Another CULT! Sometimes you just cannot fix stupid...

    Lets hope that Iglesia Ni Cristo never join forces with the PBMA Church, sounds like they both operate under similar methods...

    I'm not all that surprised by dud grenades in the Philippines. There are about 6 or so possible points of failure in a grenade.

    1. Pin not pulled (not really a failure point)
    2. Handle
    3. Spring
    4. Striker
    5. Fuse
    6. Detonation cap
    7. Primary explosive.

    It is very possible for a grenade to fail after sitting around for awhile in a hot and humid (and sometimes salty) climate. :wink:

    Thank you for that primer. You have restored my faith in the PNP.
    Kidding aside, actually, that info is interesting. Something I've never seen and I didn't know that climate would degrade grenades. Very fortunate for the fellow that they were trying to kill. God bless him.
