Edcel opines on same-sex marriage: Di pa tayo ready


As far as Albay 1st district Rep. Edcel Lagman is concerned, Filipinos are as yet not ready to handle same-sex marriage.

“If it’s ready for divorce, anti-discrimination against women, then subsequently the country will be ready for that legislation,” Lagman said in a press conference Tuesday, October 4.

A day earlier, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez revealed that he would author and file a same-sex marriage bill.

“There is no bill yet on same sex marriage,” Lagman noted.

According to the Bicolano lawmaker, it would be best to work on the passage of priority measures that have already been filed and refiled.
