'Same-sex marriage is against natural law. It's against natural law. Marriage is for reproduction,' vice presidential aspirant Lito Atienza says

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 19) —BUHAY Partylist representative and vice presidential aspirant Lito Atienza is still against same sex marriage and absolute divorce.Speaking to CNN Philippines'The Sourceon Tuesday, Atienza explained why he is retaining his conservative stance on these issues.

"I am for defending the rights of everyone, LGBTQ and all of that. I respect the right of everyone to enjoy himself in life but I will never, never support same-sex marriage," Atienza said."You know why? Because same-sex marriage is against natural law. It's against natural law. Marriage is for reproduction," he added.

The House deputy speaker also said that he does not believe in absolute divorce, but he acknowledges that proper interventions need to be given to couples with troubled marriages."I don't believe in it but I would agree that there are problems for some couples whom we have to attend to. Let us attend to the problems of those who cannot succeed in marriage, but let us not make a law that will allow divorce in the Philippines," said Atienza, stressing that the country still believes in the importance of keeping families intact as well as the sanctity of marriage. headtopics.com

Atienza added that the constitution treats marriage as an inviolable institution, and there should not be any law that would weaken that provision.Atienza has long been representing BUHAY Party-list, a pro-life group, since 2013. He also dismissed claims that his party-list abandoned him, saying he fought against"anti-life measures" in Congress for a long time.

Kung ang union hindi gagawin sa simbahan okay lang ibigay na natin sa mga kapatid sa LGBT thanks for helping me narrow down the choices for VP. 😜 For reproduction? What about marriage of a man and a woman who have no natural means to conceive? Come on, lito_atienza. tangina bawal pala pag infertile Not voting for this one.

mag ingay mga bading HAHAHA Bye Dinosaur! Be the fossil that you are So iginaling mo yang sinabi mo po na yan? 😂 di po kayo pinipilit. Relaks lang. 🤓 So kung yung mag-asawa po hindi makabuo ng bata, against natural law din po ba? Separation of church and state. No one is asking to be married under your church - sa inyo na yun. Same-sex spouses need to get married under the state so they can get the legal benefits a heterosexual spouse would.

Gago ka ba, Lits?

Atienza to 2022 aspirants: Show true colors, be vocal about martial law stanceMartial law.. kaya nde umunlad Ang pilipinas dahil sa mga utak ng mga taong ito..That was 30 plus years ago. Paano yung mga massacre s panahon ng mag-ina ano yon balewala dahil kakampi kayo. Mga hunghang. Hindi pagkakaisa ang nais nyo kundi lalong hatiin sa galit Ang mga tao🖕🖕

Oh marriage is for reproduction daw.. susme.. Shempre vp ni manny. Backward dn magisip. 2021 na po. The likes of you need to retire. We don't need more overly conservative and narrow-minded people in the government. Corruption is against the natural law..... 🤪 Gaslighting. We have already fought this fight where I live. Arguments like this are so obviously flawed and demonstrably untrue that they never last. People can easily observe what marriage is - a stabilizing social force and a secure family life for folks.

kuyakim_atienza Bilang “balon ng karunungan”, maaari po ba ninyong bigyang-linaw sa inyong ama ang patungkol sa usaping ito? For educational purposes po. KnowledgeIsPower Napaka kitid naman ng utak ng taong ito. 👎🏼 napaghahalataang sex lang ang habol sa kasal Hay naku yung pinaka malaking magnanakaw ng manila nagsalita manahimik kana magnakaw lang naman alam mo

Nag asawa para maging baby maker 🤬😤

Arjo Atayde talking marriage with Maine MendozaArjo Atayde has come out to admit that he and Maine Mendoza are already discussing marriage. But ofcourse! She can help him a lot. Did this guy even graduate from college? I know his father is rich. Di nga makasunod ng covid protocols ito eh tapos gusto pa ng responsibility bawal yon ah kailangan magpa annul muna si Maine ibang klase din itong si 💩nang aagaw ng asawa ng may asawa at kayo naman paniwalain naman kayo sa mga fake news ito basahin mo👇

Kinasal ba yung sinaunang tao nung mag procreate sila? Tangina, straight ako pero uso lang naman yang kasal na yan dahil sa relihiyon. We are not a religion governed country. Demokrasya ang meron tayo. Kahit sinong tao, kesyo straight o hindi, may karapatang pantao na dapat- Tell that to the many animal species who practice it daily. I'm sure they'd love to hear how unnatural it is. 'Same-sex pairing is not just normal in the animal kingdom - it's even common. ...1,500 animal species are known to practice same-sex coupling' ~ Anne-Sophie Brändlin

Nakakasuka What backward shit is dizz Marriage is about union. Procreation is another issue. Marriage is for procreation not bonding for comfort! Bye po mayor lito atienza. Why was marriage invented? Marriage is binding two people together not just for reproduction. You can reproduce w/o being married btw in case you are not aware. If not marriage then perhaps jst create a new name for it so it is legal and everyone is happy.

ekis

French PM meets Pope as abuse scandal ragesFrench Prime Minister Jean Castex met Pope Francis at the Vatican on Monday as the French Catholic Church battles a storm over clerical child sex abuse and the sanctity of confession.

natural law? if we are talking about being natural…mas may nanatural pa ba sa love? loving someone is the most natural thing humans do. let love win. Not marriage. Civil union kasi Sino siya? tell that to the penguins ok boomer Our laws should be updated from time to time since we're living in a more diverse generation na. Atleast you can legalized civil union man lang. Kung ang issue mo ay procreation, bitch what if ayaw nila magkaanak? Marriage is about union not procreation.

Bahala ka mr. floral. Yung ngang mga di magkakamag anak may juridical personality sa Corporation tapos sa union ng two willing individuals ayaw mo? Bagay nga kayong dalawa ni pakyaw, mga sarado ang pag iisip sa mga bagay na dapat pinag iisipan ng mabuti, well sabagay pareho kayong walang isip nga pala sorry naman sa mga braindead

Hmmm. I think kung ang concern lang ay hindi ito naaayon sa itinuro ng bibliya, edi don't allow them to get married in church pero hayaan nyo sila ikasal through civil wedding Labasan na sila! Kalokohan. You can reproduce without getting married. Civil marriage..I agree pero kung church, wit..di ako agree

I hate his argument, 'marriage is for reproduction' so you only marry to conceive ganern? Ewan ko sayo b000 Wy? Happy in love is more important than the lAw leave piple be happy. lito_atienza You should know that Pope Francis has endorsed same-sex civil unions. Are you against your own Pope? What do you care about other people's relationship? That's their business not yours.

inutel na matanda

Primitive belief and not inclusive! Sad! Tapos tatakbo sya as vp, mooooarr.😂🤣😂🤣😂 anong utak kaya meron ito? Sodomizers in the comment section be like: Yep He is absolutely right, marriage is a relationship between two partners from different sex to keep the humanity going, otherwise the planet would be end with only cats as they are for instance re-production on the natural way :)

Separation of Church and State, nasaan ka sa Pinas? Boomer energy Looser. 😂 Haaa Ahahaha.. yari k ngayon 😆😆🥳

Paano kung babae or lalaking hindi pwede magkaanak wala silang karapatang mag-asawa? Napaka archaic year kopong kopong na paniniwala. Kuya Kim pagsabihan mo tatay mo. pls elaborate on “Proper interventions for troubled marriage”. Also unnatural for Lito Atienza to wear Hawaiian Shirts. Kung gusto mo mangakit ng bubuyog, dun ka kay Jollibee.

Magsama sila nang Presidente nya... Di dapat tlga sila iboto 🤮 1 down, kiko, tito at bong sa finals Oh honey, I feel for you if your marriage if you and your wife think it's for reproduction only. You still live in a cave, labas nmn dyan minsan So married couples without children aren’t really married?🙄
