Philippine archbishop resigns from government peace panel
    An archbishop on a Philippine government peace panel has resigned from his post, while a religious brother serving as education secretary is standing firm amid the crisis plaguing President Joseph Estrada.
    CNS reports that Archbishop Fernando Capalla of Davao and three other members of the National Peace Forum resigned from the body, saying that the 'storm clouds' hovering over the presidency have created 'unpeace'.
    Meanwhile, De La Salle Brother Andrew Gonzalez told members of his community that he would leave his post as secretary of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports 'only when Estrada goes'.
