Itanong mo kay soriano ang dating daan
On April 18, 2005, MCGI members headed by former INC member Marcos Mataro scuffled after a scheduled religious debate with members of INC in a Jollibee outlet in Apalit, Pampanga, Philippines.Apalit Mayor Tirso Lacanilao said "scores were injured", but that there were no serious injuries.Soriano challenged the action in court, arguing that the suspension imposed by the MTRCB constituted prior restraint on the media and that his language during the show's August 10, 2004 broadcast was not obscene and offensive. Soriano filed a motion seeking the reversal of its April 2009 decision. However, no representative from MCGI, including Antonio, turned up on the event and instead communicated through a phone call. The Ang Tamang Daan hosts responded that Soriano should have a debate first with the "Pope in Rome using Latin," owing to a previous claim by Soriano that he would debate with the Pope, even in Latin.The Supreme Court denied Soriano's motion and affirmed the decision with finality in 2010 by an 11-4 vote, noting that “it is a sanction that the MTRCB may validly impose under its charter without running afoul of the free speech clause." The high court reminded Soriano that his program, being aired on television, is accessible to children of all ages and therefore not appropriate for a program with a “G” or for general audience rating due to his use of vulgar language and invectives. Yung putang babae, ang gumagana lang doon yung ibaba. Soriano views this response as an excuse, while the INC sees his challenge as a bluff.On May 6, 2018, Special Assistant to the President Bong Go attend the double event in two rival religious groups with a coincidence opposing two senators on a separate events.

The initial provincial prosecutor of Pampanga dismissed the case due to lack of evidence, but Raul Gonzales who was then the secretary of the Philippines' Department of Justice, had the prosecutor removed from position and reinstated the case.In 2001, after 21 years of reticence, the INC launched its own program, Ang Tamang Daan, as a direct response for the first time to Ang Dating Daan, featuring video footages and recordings of ADD hosts as issues were tackled.Over time, the animosity between the two groups has intensified and the relationship has been severely strained.The MCGI radio program Ang Dating Daan (ADD) and Iglesia Ni Cristo had been trading accusations in their respective television programs. It was reported that the clash began when an ADD follower identified only as "Mataro" provoked INC followers.
Local police, on orders of the town mayor had gone to the restaurant and tried to stop the debate for lack of a mayor's permit.On August 16, 2004, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) preventively suspended the showing of the Ang Dating Daan program for 20 days due to slander and use of offensive and obscene language by its televangelist-host Eliseo Soriano, as a means of disciplinary action. In 2004, Manny Antonio, a worker (presbyter) of MCGI, and Abraham Cruz, an INC minister, had a signed agreement to meet for a debate conference on April 26 in the city hall of Capas, Tarlac.
