Philippine President Rodrigo Du30 may displease local Roman Catholic bishops but not the Pope. Bongbong Marcos in 2016 echoes the head of the church’s same sex marriage view saying ‘Who am I to judge?’ It’s the talk of the town via social media when Du30 vow to protect the rights of homosexuals. He even invites them to nominate a representative to work in his government.

Pro Same Sex Marriage President
“I said I am for same-sex marriage – if that is the trend of the modern times,” the president said. “If that will add to your happiness, I am for it,” Du30 jokes that in his youth he was unsure of his sexual orientation. “Why impose a morality that is no longer working and almost passed?” “So I am with you,” he added.
‘Who am I to judge?’
In 2016, Bongbong Marcos cites the Pope’s reply to same-sex marriage queries. ‘Who am I to judge?’ The Pope humbly asked. Whatever the livelihood of these brothers and sisters of hours, for as long as they have not hurt other people, they deserve such respect, Marcos explained.
Unanimous with the President
Some people may use the bible to support their disagreement with same-sex marriage. However, if they insist on that, they also break other biblical rules which are more important. Love one another and do not judge. Besides, same-sex couples need the legal protection the same as heterosexual couples. As Bongbong Marcos said; Vox populi, vox dei, the voice of the people is the voice of God. That’s how we’ll follow,” Marcos elaborated.
