This afternoon, Inquirer.net published this article which totally shook me:

MANILA, Philippines--Describing it as “highly immoral, scandalous and detestable,” a lawmaker on Monday called for the criminalization of gay marriage .

In proposing House Bill 6919, Manila Representative Bienvenido Abante Jr. said same sex union “would snap the remaining strand of our moral values.”

Abante, a pastor and chairman of the public information committee, said there is no specific provision yet in the Revised Penal Code penalizing persons who enter in same sex marriage or those who solemnize the marriage.

“While there is no documented same sex marriage yet in our country, the absence of clear legislation serves as an invitation to same sex marriage,” he said.

Violators face 15 years' imprisonment and a fine of not more than P150,000, according to the bill. It also provides a 12-year jail term and a fine of P100,000 for anybody who misdeclares or hides his or her true sex for the purpose of securing marriage license.

Any person who issues marriage license or who solemnizes the same sex union faces an imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of not more than P100,000.

From here


Need I expound on the overwhelming multi-level stupidity of this move?

I mean, this is SOOOOOOOOO stupid it's offensive to any one who makes use their brain!

Let's get past the obvious spiritual righteousness bullshit that this lawmaker feels he obtains, let's just focus on stuff that is less complicated, which is, well, logic.

News says:

a lawmaker on Monday called for the criminalization of gay marriage.


Abante, a pastor and chairman of the public information committee, said there is no specific provision yet in the Revised Penal Code penalizing persons who enter in same sex marriage or those who solemnize the marriage.

I say, "What gay marriage? There's no such thing in the Philippines! Haler! How can you possibly penalize something that does not exist?"

He says:

“While there is no documented same sex marriage yet in our country, the absence of clear legislation serves as an invitation to same sex marriage,” he said.

I say, "Clearly, your delusional. There is no clear legislation on bestiality, does this mean it's an invitation for all Filipinbo citizens to engage in intimate sexual relations with non-human animals?"

He says:

Any person who issues marriage license or who solemnizes the same sex union faces an imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of not more than P100,000.

I say, "Ang kulit, paano nga magi-issue ng same sex marriage license e wala ngang same sex marriage dito sa Pinas!"

At this part, it gets REALLY hilarious:

Violators face 15 years' imprisonment and a fine of not more than P150,000, according to the bill. It also provides a 12-year jail term and a fine of P100,000 for anybody who misdeclares or hides his or her true sex for the purpose of securing marriage license.

Point no 1: This is totally confusing. Who is gonna conceal what from whom? There are several permutations:

  1. Gay man (straight acting closet case) hides the fact that he likes to suck cock and to give credibility to the character he's portraying marries himself to a woman
  2. Gay couple, beautiful waif-like bottom gets sex transplant so he now looks like a she and can get married to straight acting boyfriend
  3. Openly gay person marries to a woman for the heck of convenience
Of the three scenarios, alam nating nangyayari ang 1 and 3. Actually nagkalat na ang mga ganyan ngayon.

Point no 2: And then how can one "misdeclare" his/her true sex? Will there be a national census on homosexuality? how can they know someone is lying unless they actually see that person sucking cock or eating pussy?

How can someone "misdeclare" his true sex? Tingin ba niya lahat ng bakla ay puro kamukha ni Ricky Reyes at BB Gandanghari? Obviously, he is totally unaware that the so-called "discreet" gay men that have plagued the country: talamak na ang mga may asawang humahada, ang mga gwapong naka-panty, ang mga bouncer na tumitili, at ang mga constru na bumibisita sa mga bathhouse!!!

It's not as if they will build a very reliable gaydar!

Point no 3: And once they identify someone as gay, ano na? Will we be sent to a concentration camp? Will we burned in giant stoves just to prevent us from finding our partners?

In which case, mapipilay ang Philippine society dahil malalagas ang entertainment industry, ang broadcast industry, ang advertising, ang fashion, ang IT, ang call centers, ang parlors, at kung anik anik pa.

If you're wondering which public official is wasting our hard-earned tax money, it's this idiot right here:

He is apparently one of the legislators who called Ang Ladlad Immoral.

He is also one of those who moved to ban FHM and other Men's magazine (read it here, Thanks Haze!)

And ironically, he proposed the issuance of marriage license to be done by Church because "the solemnization of marriage is a function of the Church not the state" (read about it here)

Ang gulo noh? E kung gumawa na lang kaya siya ng sarili niyang Vatican para masaya siya, noh!?!

It's as if he's making his stands without any clear perspective ~ which is NOT totally UNEXPECTED in the Philippines seeing as we elect morons into office.

As part of my usual sermon, I just wanna reiterate this sentiment against religous fanatics like this:

Hindi ko talaga maintindihan ang mundo, or at least ang mga RELIGIOUS FANATICS ng mundo.

Bakit ba kami na lang mga bakla ang hilig nilang pagdiskitahan?

IKAW! maka-Diyos kang tao, sabi mo? Sabihin mo nga sa akin, ano ba ang ginawa ko sa iyo?

Subukan mong tanggalin ang mga mapanlinlang mong paniniwala tungkol sa kasalanan at kabutihan. Hindi ba't pareho-pareho lang naman tayong naghahanap ng taong magmamahal sa atin?

Bakit ba gusto ninyong sirain ang mga buhay namin? Bakit ba hindi pa kami patay e gusto niyo na kaming mabuhay sa impyerno?

Yan ba ang turo sa inyo ng Diyos niyo: ang sirain ang buhay ng kapwa mo dahil hindi niyo maintindihan ang buhay ng iba?
