According to the Archdiocese of Madrid’s Analisis Digital, the measure, presented by Senator Rodolfo Biazon, would thwart efforts by the courts to legalize homosexual unions and would reverse the recent court ruling allowing transsexuals to contract marriage. The bill would only allow marriage between, “natural born males and natural born females.”
“Aside from being against the laws of God and the laws of nature, marriages under these circumstances are against the interest of society in general,” Biazon said.
The Philippine Bishops’ Conference and numerous lawmakers are backing the measure.
.- In response to a court ruling allowing a transsexual to contract marriage, lawmakers in the Philippine Congress have drafted a Constitutional amendment that would prevent similar court rulings and would ban homosexual “marriage” in the country.
