Senatorial candidate Sherwin Gatchalian against marriage equality

Sherwin Gatchalian said: “I’m against that. I’m a Christian. And I think it’s very clear in the Bible na lalaki and babae lang and puwedeng magpakasal (that only a man and a woman can marry).”

Senatorial candidate Sherwin Gatchalian has stated that he is against marriage equality, using religion as the basis for his position, and despite Article 2 Section 6 of the 1987 Philippine Constitutional clearly stating that the separation of Church and State shall be inviolable.

Interviewed by Bilang Pilipino 2016, Gatchalian said: “I’m against that (marriage equality). I’m a Christian. My mother is a pastor. I grew up in a Christian setting. And I think it’s very clear in the Bible na lalaki and babae lang ang puwedeng magpakasal (that only a man and a woman can marry). So it’s very personal to me.”
