Itanong mo kay Soriano (Tagalog for "Ask Soriano, the Bible Will Answer") is a religious radio and television program in the Philippines produced by the Members Church of God International and hosted by Eli Soriano. Unlike its sister program, Ang Dating Daan, the program features a question and answer format in which any visitor in the show can ask Soriano about biblical teachings.[1] In the Philippines, the broadcast of this program takes place right after Ang Dating Daan and it became a separate show in 1993. In the other countries, however, this show is part of the TV program O Caminho Antigo which is also hosted by Soriano. He regularly conducts "Bible Expositions" in specific venues (stadiums, public places, etc.) where the people can ask him personally on biblical issues, the Exposition is then recorded and broadcast as this show.[2]

Status[edit]

Currently, Itanong mo kay Soriano airs in 73 countries worldwide including United States, Latin America, Uruguay Brazil, Portugal (as "O Caminho Antigo"), Spain (as "El Camino Antiguo"), India, South Africa, Saipan.[3][4]

Controversy with Sister Program[edit]

In 2005, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB, Philippines) banned Soriano's Programs (including this one) because of statements made by Soriano against the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), and the MTRCB. He was prohibited from uttering libellous and defamatory statements against INC. Soriano had used terms like iglesiang pumapatay ng kapwa tao (church who murders) and iglesia ni Manalo (church of Manalo) to malign the INC in his programs.[5] The Philippine's Commission on Human Rights, urged Soriano to file charges against the MTRCB. The CHR ruled that Soriano's "freedom of speech and religion" was violated by the MTRCB's suspension order.[6]
