Philippines to Make Same-Sex Marriage a Crime

A federal lawmaker in the Philippines introduced a bill on Monday to criminalize gay marriage.

Manila Rep. Bienvenido Abante Jr., a former pastor and advocate against pornography, claims that while same-sex marriage is not allowed in the country, legislation is needed to punish those who attempt to enter into gay marriages.

According to a press release, the bill labels gay marriage as “highly immoral, scandalous, and detestable," reports Filipino newspaper Malaya.

Under the new provisions, same-sex couples who attempt to marry would face 15 years in prison and be fined 150,000 Philippine Pesos [approximately $3,200 U.S.]

Similarly, individuals who misrepresent their sex to obtain a marriage license would face 12 years behind bars and a fine of 100,000 Philippine Pesos.

Furthermore, any person who issues a marriage license to a gay couple or who performs a same-sex marriage would also be imprisoned for 10 years and face a fine of not more than 100,000 Philippine Pesos. As a result, the bill requires the Local Civil Registrar to determine the sex of applicants before issuing a license or conducting a ceremony.

If homosexual union is already not permitted, is it not somewhat of an overkill to criminalize it as well?

Just whose purposes (or agenda) is being served here?

Same-sex marriage is a civil rights, political, social, moral, and religious issue in many nations. The conflict arises over whether same-sex couples should be allowed to enter into marriage, be forced to use a different status, such as a civil union, which is usually more limited, or not have any such rights. A related issue is whether the term "marriage" should be applied.
