We should discriminate against gays

The Senate has recently passed on third reading the bill which is after penalizing all forms of discrimination including discrimination against homosexuals. Sounds good right? Wrong! At least according to the Catholic Bishops Council of the Philippines (CBCP).

According to their lawyer Ronald Reyes the institution had no problem with the bill which was against racial profiling and religious intolerance but became “concerned” when Senators made an amendment to include sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity.

“This is alarming and it might change our society,” Reyes said.

Another CBCP lawyer Jo Imbong said the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender) should not be considered the same as the elderly, the handicapped, and the poor.

“These people are disadvantaged not by their own choice. But the third sex, they choose this. How can you give protection to a choice like that?” Imbong said.

If you feel a sinking feeling of disgust and apprehension don’t worry it’s a normal reaction when faced by malevolent primordial slime left behind by an age long gone and should be happily forgotten.

This underscores the very real  situation out country faces on the topic of discrimination. We have to face the reality that even with the countrys so-called Christian morality of loving each others neighbor the Philippines is practically no different from the barbaric tribes still surviving in the jungles of Africa and the deserts of the Middle East.

In those worlds, rights are a fantasy with less substance than smoke, and if we don’t protect everyone then the concepts of rights, freedom, and equality are nothing but colossal jokes adults tell themselves to make them feel better.

Maybe they should re-phrase that to Love whoever we approve of and to hell with everyone else.

Being gay doesn’t delegate one into becoming a second-class citizen devoid of protection from discrimination which is their right, whether they chose it or not does not enter into the equation. The spirit of the anti-discrimination bill is precisely that. To respect your existence as a human being who is no greater and no lesser than anyone else. Man or woman, CEO or beggar, cripple or athlete. No one has any right to deny you rights or opportunities based on who you are or what you believe as long as it does not disturb the safety and welfare of the public.

Their main objections however are if penalties against discrimination are enacted it will open the way for homosexual marriages. And their right, it could lead to that, but that’s a whole different ball game. They aren’t valid grounds to support discrimination.

More and more the CBCP are showing how bigoted and narrow-minded their world view is behind the kindly facade they so desperately try to cling to in order to gain immunity from public scrutiny and rebuke. But the more they fight the world on how it decides to respect its people the more they show how ill fit they are for this world.
