  1. What you keep on saying is that marriage is a religious institution. It is not. If it was just about religion, try marrying without a marriage license, which gives you the benefits that marriage gives. Civil marriage has nothing to do with religion. This kind of marriage is recognized by the state. And I believe that is what LGBT activists are fighting for.

  2. We may have a majority of Catholics in the Philippines, but Roman Catholicism is not the official religion of the country. Everyone has their own beliefs, and that's why we have the separation of church and state to make sure we have that right. Not everyone believes in your belief, so why do we have to conform to it by not making gay marriage legal?

  3. If you don't like same sex marriage, then don't marry someone of the same sex, but we should not deny same sex couples their right to marry if they want, especially if they're not hurting anyone. Same sex couples also deserve the right to marry.

  4. Well, that's your belief, and I respect that. I also believe in the sanctity of marriage. That's why I don't agree with adultery, month long marriage, etc. Marriage is a bond. I believe that same sex marriage is a good thing, and it needs to be legalized. For me, it's morally right, if it's a loving and committed couple. If you don't believe in it, you don't need to partake into it, but same sex couples should be given the right to do so, if they want to.

  5. CATHOLIC RELIGION ALWAYS INTERFERE WITH GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS, IT IS MISINFORMED ABOUT GAYS,IT HAS A WRONG CONCEPT THAT ALL MALE GAYS PRACTICE SODOMY. THERE ARE ALSO GAYS THAT DO NOT GO BEYOND KISSING, HUGGING AND BEING EMBRACED. WHETHER PRACTICING OR NOT, IT IS UNFAIR THAT GAYS CANNOT HAVE SAME RIGHTS AS ANYONE ELSE SINCE THEY ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO OBEY THE LAW AND PAY TAXES. ALTHOUGH I'M A DEVOUT CATHOLIC, I'M TOTALLY IN FAVOR OF LEGALIZING SAME SEX MARRIAGE

  6. There are countless things in the bible that are not relevant on how we live today. This book was written thousands of years ago. The LGBT community are not here to hurt us. They're not here to cause us harm. They're simply fighting for rights to be recognised and respected like everyone else under the law. The blatant hypocrisy that most of you show is disgusting. If you're gonna be shoving bible verses down our throats, make sure that you yourself follow that bible word for word. But guess what? You don't!  It is also sad that the gays have been misrepresented in the Philippines in more ways than one. For instance, a lot of you do not even know the difference between being a gay man and being transgender.  There's nothing progressive about your way of thinking. A bunch of brainwashed individuals -confined in the small, restricted world of religion that their colonisers imposed upon them some three hundred years ago. Philippines, think outside the box. Be more compassionate, educate yourselves. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. Perhaps, this country may finally experience prosperity after the backwardness that has been holding us back all these years.

  7. Jude 7 "just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire."

    While Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty of many other horrendous sins, homosexuality was the reason God poured fiery sulfur on the cities, completely destroying them and all of their inhabitants. To this day, the area where Sodom and Gomorrah were located remains a desolate wasteland. Sodom and Gomorrah serve as a powerful example of how God feels about sin in general, and homosexuality specifically.

    If you want Philippines to be the next one, go and test God's wrath.

  8. Tama naman hnde utos ng dyos ang lalaki asawahin ang kapwa nyang lalaki at ang babae asawahin ang kapwa nyang babae dhil kong utos ng dyos hnde na nya ginawa ang lalaki para sa babae at babae nman para sa mga lalaki ang mga gumagawa ng same-sex marriage may mga problema lng yan sa otak

  9. Same sex marriage as a civil right, may be accepted someday if you'd insist it to be your right. But with the church's blessing? Huwag naman po sana. I hope sir that you don't peach God's words in the bible and call yourself a christian. Huwag mo na pong pagbatayan ang biblia kung ganyan ang paniniwala ninyo. Hindi po kami para humusga ng sinoman bagkus nagpapaalala lang na gaya ng utos ng Dios sa biblia. Hebrew 3:13. Dios na po ang bahala sa inyo…
