    EXPOSED: ‘Pastor Hokage’ Facebook groups feasting over female obscenity

    Just recently, news about several secret Facebook groups, mostly named with religious overtones, had proliferated over social media. These groups were reported to have been sharing, in an illicit manner, lewd and sexual photos of women in their respective Facebook groups.

    The issue took the limelight shortly after JP Soriano, a reporter of 24 Oras, had exposed the controversial agenda in the said nighttime news program.

    Details of the said report by Soriano were provided by another group named "Catcalled in the Philippines”, which according to them, has been monitoring the lascivious activities committed by these private groups.

    These secret groups, whose membership range from 9,000 to 2 million, conceal their sexual agenda by hiding under names bearing religious implications such as “Pastor Hokage Bible Study”. Members of these groups use religious terms such as “Amen” to denote affirmation with sexual innuendos. Moreover, aspiring group members are urged and encouraged to contribute or “ambag” any lewd and sexual photo as a requisite to join the secret group.

    “Pag-uusapan nila kung anong gusto nilang gawin sa babae…yun talagang pinakamasama na pwede mong gawin sa babae, sa ganung’ kontexto, sasabihin nila, it doesn’t matter kung bata ‘yung girl,” said Koko Rodriguez, who gained details on the issue after monitoring the secret groups.

    “In-appropriate na naman nila ‘yung religious na term for their own perverted end…it’s like ‘we agree’ or ‘we’re with you,’” Rodriguez added.

    Esquire Philippines last week had published a feature article entitled “The dark Side of Filipino Facebook” which revealed that child pornography and revenge porn were some of the “stuff” feasted over by members of these secret groups.

    On a legal note, the National Bureau for Investigation (NBI) cautioned that members of such groups can be held liable for “violating child pornography and anti-voyeurism laws”. That was affirmed by NBI-Cybercrime chief Atty. Martini Cruz, where she stated that:

    “Well, minors plus child pornography, mabigat ang penalty diyan, plus ngayon kung babae naman nakahubad without their consent, pwede silang mag-reklamo for anti-photo and video voyeurism na violation.”

    Meanwhile, Facebook had released an official statement condemning such illicit activities given that “nudity and sexual exploitation” are eminently against the standards of the said social media domain.

    “We take swift action to remove this content when we’re made aware of it, and where appropriate, refer it to law enforcement.”

    For accountability’s sake, the NBI and Facebook urged victims as well as concerned netizens to report illicit activities similar to the above-stated perversive agenda.
