In this December 23, 2023 article, CNN reports the creation of the Special Committee on LGBTQIA+ Affairs. Through Executive Order No. 51, members of the LGBTQIA+ community will have an avenue to express their concerns and participate in the government’s policy formulation.
Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said that the interagency committee is necessary for the country to comply with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.
Editor’s Note: We must all keep an eye open and monitor the progress of these policies being instituted by the Marcos government, especially since a majority are now in line with the New World Agenda [see the new bill on climate change response].
While we agree that there is no place for discrimination based on gender in our country, we also believe in fundamental principles. For example: there is an appropriate time and place for children to explore their sexuality, and parents have the ultimate responsibility of making decisions for their children. Our schools should never be used as a propaganda machine for promoting the transgender agenda, and more importantly, our children must be protected from early sexualization and any exploitation.
We hope that you can be our partners in watching over the government, to ensure that the policies they will institute will promote justice and equality.
