LOOKING IN

BY ROD BALBON

Before, nobody wanted to have a gay son or a lesbian daughter. Their existence was considered a blot on the escutcheon of the family, more so if their families are considered as warlord or fighter. As they mature, they hide their real sexual preference so as not to raise the ire of their parents and the ridicule of the highly conservative and religious public. They are usually the butt of jokes and derision. They only “take off their robes”, so to speak, and freely flaunt their true personalities when their parents die or when they are already at the top of their pinnacle of success.

Nowadays, they are open and are marching in the streets, crying out for equality with the hope and optimism that Congress will legislate same sex marriage. The LGBT’s (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transger) are demanding that their rights be respected and that many western countries have already legalize same sex marriages. My favorite British singer and songwriter, Elton John, is one good example. He is now almost in the 70’s and is living happily with his male partner whom he married many years ago.

But the latest survey, as reported by the SWS Survey however, shows that our country is not yet ready for such kind of legislation. Being the only dominant Catholic country in Asia, same sex marriage is anathema to the belief and teachings of the Bible. We are taught and made to understand that marriage is the union of a man and a woman with the purpose of procreation as mandated in the Holy Scripture. Marriage of two different sexes is likewise mandated by our Civil Laws and the Canon Laws. How can there be procreation between two same sexes? God never created LGBTs. He created Adam and Eve—the symbol of only the two sexes he created—man and woman. God likewise destroyed this kind of people (lesbians and gays) in Sodom and Gomorrah as narrated in the Bible.

But they are now a-plenty and are almost everywhere. Their numbers are surprisingly increasing even if they don’t procreate—pedophile priests and pastors, designers, hairdressers, corporate executives, TV hosts, and members of the House of Congress and the Senate—openly displaying their sexual inclinations and don’t give a damn what the public will say. Most of them don’t act within the norms and decency of a civilize society. They’re rude, they shout and speak vulgar language.

But as they say, it is not their sin to be born as LGBTs which we fully understand. We also respect their kind of person but allowing them to have same sex marriage is atrocious, revolting, and downright crazy. This idea is clearly against morals and teachings of the Holy Bible.

Let those permissive and highly liberalized Western countries destroy their social fabrics in allowing same sex marriages. These countries are sitting on a social volcano that will soon erupt and sink them into many social problems.
