Philippinos March in Processions Despite Threat of Terror - But From Whom?

The annual procession of the Black Nazarene was held today. A blackened statue of Christ carrying a cross that survived a ship fire many years ago was again carried through the streets by the faithful. There had reportedly been threats by terror groups to attack or otherwise disrupt the celebration. MSNBC, however, never tells us who exactly made these threats. Were they hunter-gatherers from that nation's remote provinces? Or perhaps they were Jewish or Buddhist groups who were determined to stop the event. I find it highly unlikely that atheists would be so bothered by the traffic backups caused by an event that they would in turn threaten to attack the Christians. Did a group of Christan Fundamentalists in the US get so worked up at what they would perceive as the idolatry of these Catholics?

Let's see.... Shintoists, no,- Zoroastrians, no, - Animists, Rastafarian's, Baha'i devotees, no, no, and no.

I am running out of possible suspects as the process of elimination strikes one group after another from the list.

Maybe the Western media would do well to being naming those who are doing these things.
