LapuLapu: Pilipinas Kong Mahal
Commemorate April 21st, 2021 5th Centennial Victory of Lapu Lapu in the battle of Mactan Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs Official Statement: "Today we launch our song of triumph -- "LapuLapu: Pilipinas Kong Mahal" This is on the occasion of the 500th Anniversary of the Victory of Liberty and Freedom in the "Great Battle of Mactan" by a sovereign people against enslavement by colonialist "conquistadores" on April 21, 1521. Let the truth be known: When the Portuguese mercenary of Spain arrived in the Isles of Ophir and Sheba, they were astonished to see the islanders call raised their hands towards heaven to call upon the Name of YHWH their ABBA Father in heaven, the Creator of heaven and earth! The mercenaries, led by Magellan and Barbosa, tried to introduce their Roman Empire "Christianized"' pagan religion but were outwitted to their annihilation. Spain waited for a generation to pass. Then a second attempt was made after receiving reports from their spies of Lapulapu's departure to Celebes. Lapu-Lapu and the pacific islanders' gallantry reverberated throughout the world of greedy colonialists. The islanders of Ophir, Sheba, and Havillah had their rest though brief. A worthy tale of valor to recount for all generations to come..
