Si Cardinal Sin ay naging alagad ng simbahang katoliko pero lingid sa kaalam ng marami, si Cardinal Sin ay isang “certified member” ng A.M.P.A.W. (Anti-Marcos Personalities and Writers).

Sa pananaliksik ng Bagong Lipunan, napatunayan na kasapi nga ng AMPAW si Cardinal Sin.  Ito ang mga proweba:

1) Si Cardinal Sin ay naging kritiko ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Nabanggit ni Marcos si Cardinal Sin sa video na ito.

2) Si Cardinal Sin ay nanawagan noong February 22, 1986 na suportahan ang mga nagtraydor kay Marcos na sina Fidel V. Ramos at Juan Ponce Enrile.  Sabi niya:

“I am calling our people to support our two good friends (Ramos and Enrile) at the Camp.  If any of you could be around at Camp Aguinaldo to show your solidarity and support in this very crucial period, when our two good friends have shown their idealism.  I would be very happy if you support them now.”

Opinion of Bagong Lipunan:

Tanong: Ano kaya ang posibleng rason bakit naging AMPAW member si Cardinal Sin?

Sagot: Dahil sa Proclamation No. 2074 ni dating pangulong Ferdinand E. Marcos noong 1981, napasama ang 4.12 hectares na lupa na gustong angkinin ng pamilya ni Sin.

Noong 1991, nag-file ng kaso ang pamilyang Sin upang makuha ang naturang lupa pero hindi sila pinaboran ng Korte Suprema.

Ayon sa Korte Suprema,

“[I]t is therefore the respondents (Sins) which have the burden to identify a positive act of the government, such as an official proclamation, declassifying inalienable public land into disposable land for agricultural or other purposes. Since respondents failed to do so, the alleged possession by them and by their predecessors-in-interest is inconsequential and could never ripen into ownership”
