“Vox Populi vox Dei”, I saw this aphorism in the office of the Commission on Election in our municipality and it gives me an idea on how the voice of God makes the voice of the people. We already know that we are created equally from the design and idea of our Creator. From the beginning of our journey here in this world, we are naked and back as an ashes that will be thrown away as yesterday’s memories. But the question is the voice of God exists?
Couple of months this year, the Congress opens the door of the Anti Discrimination Bill. The provision of the bill tackles about some rights specially the LGBT. But the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines disagreed about the said provision. They wanted to eliminate the provision to have an equal marriage between same sex. I was wondering if why they wanted to eradicate the rights of the people.
As what their Lawyer said to the Inquirer News that “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?” I can’t imagine that these are the words of the people behind the altar. That these words are questioning the protection of the people in the third sex. And they said that LGBT “should not be considered the same as the elderly, the handicapped, and the poor.” I can’t imagine that these guys are questioning the equality of the LGBT.
The LGBT is facing a scrutiny from the eyes of the public and the conservative church. They are pointing their filthy fingers against them treat them like a criminal and eliminating their rights. I remember those days when WOMEN are fighting their rights in the past history of our country. Pushing the RA 9262 from the Congress to the Senate until it reached the table of the President. Slowly they achieved the equality and protection from the government.
Nowadays, the LGBT is increasing their numbers from various sector of our society. Biblically in Genesis2:22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. Scientifically the chromosome of the man is “XY” and the woman is “XY”. If I’m not mistaken therefore a man is a woman and a woman is a man. They are equally bond in the name of LOVE from God’s design.
So when the LGBT family boomed from the market of popularity another issue was tagged to them that they are the main carriers of the illness they called HIV/AIDS. We already know that HIV/AIDS exist after the LGBT’s existence. I can’t imagine that if people will talk about the medical condition they will pin point their fingers to the LGBT group. I remember those people who have leprosy in the biblical time that they had to separate their self from the crowd and were being discriminated by the people. They are being thrown away from the darkness world of discrimination. If yesterday was leprosy in our generation is the HIV/AIDS.
The new generation is facing some sort of new western culture. But the word discrimination is more than an illness that will kill the entire people. I don’t even understand why people can’t accept the others choice. I can’t even think of the best reason to explain in the future what happened in the present. The synagogue of hypocrisy leads to poison the entire humanity.
The LGBT group is a happy family in a hidden way. They are hiding coz people are mocking them, throwing some words of discrimination. The only thing that the LGBT group wants in the society are words of ACCEPTANCE, RESPECT, KINDNESS, and LOVE AND A LAW that protects them perpetually. The LGBT group are people, has a right to choose, the right to live in a merry way, the right to have a family and friends same right as what the normal people does. The LGBT is not just a simple tribe they are a happy people living with harmony and love. If you will respect others be with it as your religion. Respect is the most important thing. Our rights is our hope, giving love is not saying the word I LOVE YOU but its working the best part of it.
One day you will understand how people live and how love will be. Love accepts everything it shows no gender, no color, no race and no religion. From the verdict of the eyes of man LGBT is not a mutant they are normal people who learns to love the same people. Love doesn’t give you the authority to eliminate the rights of everybody. Love is mysterious and it touches the word acceptance. I hope that at the end of the tunnel there should be light that the LGBT world will be the same world as what the people expecting to it.
