SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN THE PHILIPPINES: ARE WE READY FOR IT?
FIRST AND FOREMOST,
CONGRATULATIONS NEW YORK! SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS NOW ALLOWED IN YOUR STATE!
Now, back to my topic.
Same sex marriage is now an arising (well, still an old issue) issue here in the Philippines after New York legalizes it. I was thinking is the Catholic-dominated country like the Philippines ready for such same sex marriage? Same sex marriage is like the RH Bill and the Divorce Bill, the Catholic Church is against it yet many of the Filipinos agreed to it.
Yes. The Catholic Church is always there to counterattack such issues or proposed bills to legalize these bills. I am a Catholic but I do not oppose such. I am PRO DIVORCE. PRO RH BILL. Lastly, PRO SAME SEX MARRIAGE.
Back to the question, ARE WE READY FOR GAY MARRIAGE?
A BIG NO! Why? Because we still live in a country that has a very strong Catholic Church influence. We have Congressmen/women who have strong church values and afraid to be against the will of the church.
But I still believe that in few years time, we can pass and have SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN THE PHILIPPINES. I firmly believe that love should be UNCONDITIONAL and knows NO GENDER! Everyone deserves to love and be loved. I believe in the idea of EQUALITY FOR ALL. If a man falls in love to another man or a woman in love to another woman, let's RESPECT THEM! Give them the choice of getting married.
WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS AND WE KNOW HOW TO LOVE!
