Comelec rejects gay partylist  

Posted by Laya in ,

Dear Philippines,
You just suffered another major fail today, amidst all the major fails that have been going on in you anyway. Today your Commission on Elections has refused the petition of a gay organization to be included in the party lists that will be voted upon to represent your people in congress in the coming May 2010 elections.

The Comelec's reason: Being gay is offensive to religious morals and therefore cannot be allowed a voice in Congress. Yet, it said, it is "not condemning the LGBT, but we cannot compromise the well-being of the greater number of our people, especially the youth." Double-talk, much?
This after this country and this administration has been touting that it is well ahead of other countries when it comes to gender sensitivity. Isn't it ironic? But what do you expect of a culture of pakitang-tao (surface appearances)?
Ang Ladlad is offensive to public morals, it seems, but Jovito Palparan in Congress isn't, despite the public clamor to have him removed.
Oh, well. We have already known for a long time how hypocritical this government is, anyway.
