ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS GREETINGS

The United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) strongly deplores the recent tagging by the Department of National Defense and the Armed Forces of the Philippines of the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) as a communist/terrorist front. Such accusation aside from being unfounded is patently reckless and blatantly hateful. It brings back to mind the memories of Martial Law when NCCP was also labelled by the military-backed Marcos dictatorship as communist front. In June of 1974, the main office of NCCP was raided by the military and some of its staff members were arrested.
