Oust Brod Tito Venida from being a Founding Father!
Brothers and sister for unity, There are concerned brods/sis (We are neither TGCC, NEC and IC and we come from different chapters.) now who are appalled by the actions of Founding Father Tito Venida in claiming credit for the establishment of the Tau Gamma Phi. In so doing, FFTV is discrediting the other three Founding Fathers to make it appear that he is the Creator, Mastemind and Messiah of the Fraternity all rolled into one. First, his CD, then his book, now his pronouncements have even beem upload to youtube.com (http://www.youtube.com/watchv=2aduYbm9R1o and http://www.youtube.com/watchv=Q-eZ3AkzZB0&feature=related. You can also use "Tito Venida" as the search parameter for youtube.com). On top of that, nag-iikot siya all over the Philippines and it has even been reported that he is charging the council sponsoring his forum P1,000 and an entrance fee of P100 for the individual brods/sis who attend. We are sure that FFTV is not alone in what he is doing. We are equally sure that FFTV will not stop in his attempts to divide the Fraternity so that he can take over the bits and pieces that will be swayed by his falsehoods. For what purpose, we can only speculate. Si FFTV ang pilit na gumagawa ng guhit na maghahati sa ating Kapatiran. Siya ang unang katunggali ng tunay na pagkakaisa. Ito ay bagay na hindi natin maaring palampasin. At kailangan ng konkretong aksyon upang panatiliin ang ating pagkakaisa at sagipin ang institusyon ng Founding Fathers bilang isa sa mga haligi ng Tau Gamma Phi. Before we launch our coordinated actions, we would like to solicit your suggestions as to what we need to do. Now is the time we wish to hear what you have to say, lalo na dun sa mga Kapatid na nasa ibang bansa dahil ang problema na ginagawa ni FFTV ay nakatuon dito sa Pilipinas. Kahit anong suggestion-- as long as it will foster unity and protect the Founding Fathers not as individuals but as an institution-- we will take into consideration. Kung gusto ninyong pilitin si FFTV na mag-retract ng mga claim niya, kung nais ninyong pilitin siyang mag-public apology o kahit na gusto ninyong magpakita ng compassion sa kanya by starting a collection plate to confine FFTV to a home for the aged, senile and megalomaniacs, ok lang yun. As long as we hear what you have to say. Again, now is the time to be heard. We have done our best not to allow FFTV\'s attempts to draw the line dividing the Frat since 2006 not to prosper. Kung ano ang puwede na ngang ibigay namin sa kanya bilang balato, ginawa na namin. But, sadly, it is not up to us to decide on what will really happen since the ball is in FFTV\'s court. But we do know that his past attempts to subvert the Tenets and the Code of Conduct to suit his particular agenda have been thwarted by a stong showing of our unity. Bago kami mapilitang tumulong kay FFTV sa pag-guguhit (pero dun kami sasama kina Bros Rod, Talek at Roy) we would like to make one last ditch attempt to salvage the situation and preserve unity within our ranks. Fraternally yours, Mandy Alegre Quetzal "White" UP \'80 Note: The videos in youtube is already removed so here is the other FFTV video link for you to see and hear - http://jesok.multiply.com/video/item/21
