Secret jueteng pay offs received by those who are in higher government position is always a problem on every new Philippine government whereas those who received jueteng pay offs are cast as “evil”, “corrupt” or perceived in a negative eye, by the number one Philippines’ hypocrite religious church – the Roman Catholic church, particularly their archbishops who loves to play superheroes against jueteng. For recently, the ever noisy retired Catholic archbishop Oscar Cruz bares again an accusation against the two close officials of Aquino administration which PNoy appointed, as receiving a minimum of two million pesos monthly jueteng payola. However, Archbishop Oscar Cruz refused to name them and in vice-versa PNoy wanted Oscar Cruz to present concrete evidence regarding his claim or accusation.
Wherever this brand new jueteng payoffs revelation will lead to,it is not actually a big deal, what makes it a dilemma is that every new administration that sits face or have a problem how to legalized this so-called “illegal” number game or how to crashed it.
Jueteng, in contrary to Roman Catholic Church perception is not an evil game and not all “illegal” stuff could be considered evil or bad. Actually, jueteng is just a number game like lottery which are not only within the range of control of the government, thus it is called “illegal”; see it is bias labeling. If the ruling government has no control over such activity or thing and if it is not approved by the ruling government, such activity or thing is labeled “illegal”.
However, it is the common good for all the ruling government seeks after why it legalized an activity or thing. But that depends what kind of ruling government such an activity or thing is under; for example, preaching the “good news” could be banned and not approved and considered an “illegal” activity by the ruling government that imposes and promotes atheism.
However, in jueteng game, we could not see anything evil on it, actually, it do helps the poor gain a decent money or income by being a “dispatcher” which receives commission money or win the bet like in lottery games. It is not really evil because some past governments make attempts to legalize it like lottery games, the only problem are those who perceived jueteng as an “evil’ game like the Roman Catholic church. They reason out that any game of chance is evil, whereas, they are the ones who are really evil and greed for money and wealth by exploiting many financially since the beginning of their church, using “god’ and “Christ” as their front to exploit ignorant masses. They are one of the hindrances who blocks the legalization of jueteng game, as well as those government officials who secretly received jueteng pay offs because if jueteng game become a legal game, their secret jueteng pay offs will be no more. Imagine the millions they will lose if they let jueteng to be legalized.
