‘Son of God’ stumped by anointed political candidate’s loss • Sunday May 23, 2010

DAVAO CITY, Philippines—The self-styled “Appointed Son of God” appears to be at a loss over the outcome of the presidential elections that saw his “anointed” trailing far behind the leading candidates.

Apollo Quiboloy, founder and head of the religious group “Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Name Above Every Name,” said he was baffled by the results of the elections in which Gilbert Teodoro placed a distanced fourth.

Speaking to selected journalists for the first time since he announced his preference for Teodoro at a proclamation rally here several days before the elections, Quiboloy said the results of the voting were puzzling.

“We ourselves are baffled and have been asking exactly the same question,” he said during a break in a tree-planting activity he spearheaded in Barangay Tamayong on Friday.

Quiboloy’s religious sect claims to have at least four million members who are registered as voters.

Teodoro garnered over three million votes in the nationwide balloting.

“What happened to our votes? Where did our votes go? The Kingdom citizens voted solidly for Teodoro and now we could only ask where did these votes go?” Quiboloy said.

The televangelist warned that if Sen. Benigno Aquino III would eventually be proclaimed, the next administration will suffer severely.
