No same-sex union, no abortion, no divorce, no euthanasia and no contraceptives.

I wonder what the new presidency will now do in future...
It is not easy to ignore demands coming from the Church in the Philippines...



Mass for new government

Before baring the list, the bishops attended a Mass for the new government at the Manila Cathedral.
'The CBCP insists 13-point advocacies as guidance to President Benigno Simeon Aquino III when he assumes office for moral and social transformation of the country especially the poor,' said former Manila auxiliary bishop Teodoro Bacani Jr. in an article posted on the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) news site.

On top of the list was the implementation of land reform through Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program with extension and reform (CARPer).
The bishops also demanded from Aquino the rejection of the controversial reproductive health bill, same-sex union, abortion, divorce, euthanasia and contraceptives. They also urged him not to allow the demolition without relocation of urban poor families.
