The United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) is deeply offended and gravely concerned by the recent forced entry of the para-military group, Alamara, in the compound of UCCP-Haran which we believe arose from the resolution of the Regional Peace and Order Council of Region 11 seeking the immediate closure of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) Haran Center on F. Selga St., Madapo, Davao City. We find such resolution undoubtedly offensive against the Church and against those that advocate peace, justice and human rights – a clear violation of the principle of separation of church and state.
