I was severely disappointed about the news. Comelec rejects Ang Ladlad`s petition to become a sectoral party.
LGBT’s are a threat to the youth? WOW. That is insane. The youth do not care about politics that much. They show more concern on their environment. Also, when has the Philippines followed religion? Most of us don’t even go to Sunday masses. A lot of us don’t evangelize. Half of us are atheists. Many are becoming non-believers. Why? Look around you. People already have no hope in this country. From issues on garbage to corruption, what is there to believe in? A devastated country this has become. So I say. How dare they base religion on their decision.
“As an agency of the government, ours too is the State’s avowed duty under Section 13, Article II of the Constitution to protect our youth from moral and spiritual degradation,” the resolution added. Protect the youth from moral and spiritual degradation? The government HAS ALREADY FAILED in that part already. Many of the youth are becoming drug addicts, smokers, gamblers, thieves and criminals! Why? It’s because they are exhibiting such acts. Most government officials have tobacco businesses, some are even masterminds of drug manufacturing. Also, it’s common belief that the government is corrupt. It can be deduced that hypocrisy indeed exists.
One main reason why the Philippines cannot progress is that it still relies on archaic beliefs. We’re already in the 21st century. We cannot move on if we still rely on religion [when we of course violate many of its major rules] Plus, we’re talking about Human Equality and I think it’s about time the Philippines accept the existence of the oppressed LGBT. They’re not being immoral. Each and every one of us have contributions in this world. Each individual, too, is given a purpose.. What "Ang Ladlad" was doing was the thing ought to be done.
What do I have to suggest? Let them run and see what the people have decided. Whether they win or lose.
