Lito Atienza to Approve Same Gender Marriage if Man Got Pregnant
LITO ATIENZA – The vice presidential candidate expresses approval to same gender marriage if a man can get pregnant.
Even if he supports the LGBTQIA+ community’s rights, Atienza insists that he would only accept to the marriage if the man falls pregnant. Atienza stated in a Teleradyo interview that the country should obey “natural law.”
“Kapag ‘yung lalaki ay nagdadalangtao na at nanganganak, magbabago ako ng aking pananaw kasi ibig sabihin, nagbago na ang natural law,” Atienza explained.
“Because only women and men can produce a baby, that’s natural law. Not man to man, woman to woman. The woman cannot be an animal or a man cannot be an animal. Therefore we must follow natural law,” he added.
He further stated that, despite the fact that same-gender marriage is legal in the United States, people should follow the beliefs and teachings of the churches. He argued that the United States became disoriented as a result of a shift in the understanding of right thinking and acceptance of life’s meaning.
“Kaya naligaw ang Amerika… marami na silang same-sex marriage na nagaganap. Binabago na nila yung interpretation ng wastong pag-iisip at wastong pagtanggap sa kabuluhan ng buhay. Look at where America is going now,” Atienza added.
“Very serious problem, namamaril ang mga bata sa eskwelahan, pumapatay ng tao. Why is this happening? It’s happening because they have also violated natural law,” he added.
Despite this, Atienza stated that he will continue to fight for the LGBTQIA+ community’s rights. Everyone has the right to happiness under the Constitution. I support each citizen’s freedom to identify his or her own sexuality, he added.
“I will always defend the rights of anyone to be happy. Ikaw ay pinanganak na gay, lumaki kang gay, you continue being gay, karapatan mo yan. And I will always defend your rights,” he said.
