Rodrigo Duterte, The President Of The Philippines, Declares: ‘I Want Homosexual Marriage For The Philippines. I Even Once Desired To Be A Homosexual And I Did Not Know If I Was A Guy Or A Girl.’

By Theodore Shoebat

Rodrigo Duterte, the president of the Philippines, is now declaring that he wants homosexual marriage, and that he at one point wanted to be a homosexual and did not know if he wanted to be a guy or a girl. I did a whole video:

According to a report from RT:

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has voiced his support for same-sex unions, telling an LGBT gathering that he even toyed with the idea of becoming bisexual so he could “have fun both ways.”

Duterte made the remarks at an LGBT gathering at Azuela Cove in Davao City on Sunday.

“I said I am for (same) sex marriage if that is the trend of the modern times,” he said. “If that will add to your happiness, I am for it.”

Duterte said he was against gender discrimination, and that he had two gay brothers-in-law. The president also voiced his support for having gay members in his cabinet, adding that he was open to allowing same-sex marriage, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports.

“Why impose a morality that is no longer working and almost passé. It’s leftover rice,” he said, in a likely reference to the Catholic Church’s stance on the issue. “So I am with you.”

The controversial leader’s statements may cause uproar in the largely Catholic country, however. Duterte is at odds with the Catholic Church on a number of issues, including his support for artificial birth control and the reinstatement of death penalty.

“I want gay marriage. The problem is we have to change the law, but we can change the law,” he said, referring to the country’s Family Code, which says marriage is between a man and a woman. Duterte even said he once considered being bisexual, so he could “have fun both ways, but that did not happen.”

He also told the crowd, “When I was in high school, I did not know if I wanted to be a girl or a boy.”

    Spoken like a true politician. Philippines needs a new leader.

    It’s repeated numerous times through the Catechism that the Catholic Faith stands upon faith ‘and’ reason. Google the term “faith and reason” if you don’t believe me. It’s a mantra of the Church.

    That’s why the NT says Christ is the head of the man and man is the head of the woman. We are meant to be led by faith and reason (the purity of Truth) because our hearts have been corrupted by the fall.

    Women are naturally more empathetic than men. They are stronger than us in this area, which is an important trait for motherhood. Women can empathise with young children better than we can.

    What men are naturally stronger at is being impartial. It’s easier for us to say “the truth is the truth.”

    That’s why women are more fanatically pro-homosexual in general, because this movement is a ‘feelings’ based movement. “Love is love.” Logic has been completely removed from the public discourse. (Not to say there aren’t male fanatics too, there are. Speaking generally here…).

    Following the reasoning you applied in this video to its logical conclusion, we would have to reach the following conclusions:
    – Martin Luther was a saint because Pope Francis speaks highly of him.
    – Evolution theory is proven beyond all reasonable doubt because every recent pope has written as such.
    – Marriage is a sham because the right has accepted ‘gay-marriage’ therefore marriage is completely evil and we shouldn’t accept it atl.

    Contraceptives were introduced to the Japanese by America. You have said the Japanese must be held accountable for all their mistakes and evils implying American has no blame.

    Then you say Lenin was a German agent implying Russia bears no responsibility for falling into Communism.

    You’re all over the place.

    Patriotism has always been considered a virtue by the Church, just because men are perverting it today doesn’t make it evil when properly ordered toward God. In the same way as just because man believes ‘gay-marriage’ is a right today doesn’t make marriage evil when it is properly ordered between a man and a woman.

    You claim to be impartial but by supporting illegal immigration (because evil people are manipulating the issue for a sinister agenda), you are taking a radical left view.

    Yes, the left manipulates this issue by focusing solely on the vulnerable illegal immigrants, in the same way as the right manipulates the issue by focusing solely on the worst criminals that illegally cross the border.

    Open borders is lawlessness. It is Satan who loves lawlessness. There are two legitimate sides to this issue, there are the persecuted seeking refuge and their are the hardened criminals. The only way to separate the weeds from the wheat is by properly vetting those who cross the border. This is basic common sense.

    It’s a shame your bias clouds your judgement so radically because you are on point in a lot of ways, but these logical inconsistencies do dampen your other exceptional findings and the influence they could potentially have outside of your most devoted followers.

    Every nation and people are ultimately accountable for their own evils whether they be Japanese or American, Jewish or Italian, irrespective of whether they are ultimately chosen by God to be a goat nation or a sheep nation.

    The Catholic Faith isn’t about blind fanaticism. The Catholic Faith stands upon faith ‘and’ reason.

    This is the last time I’m going to write this correction and my closing comment here at shoebat.com. You’ve all taught me a great deal in my time here (Ted included) and for that I thank you.

    Peace be with you.

    P.S. The insightful fact you shared about Lenin being a Russian agent merely proves the point that many have been saying all along, Communism and Nazism are two sides of the same coin. They’re both evil. Marxism remains a scourge on humanity to this day. Secular Feminism is rooted in Marxism. Its purpose is to turn women into men, so that they primarily focus on their careers rather than marriage and family. This empowers the secular state to be the primary educators of children then through government based school and university curriculum’s (and creates two taxable incomes rather than one).

      Personally, I think you should stick around. Balance.

        oh well. Another one bites the dust.

        I prefer the flip side song. 😉

        • CTyank

          Don’t recall the flip, Susan. But yeah, the commenters are disappearing here and some of them have great points to make. I remember when Walid would write on Catholicism and get 300 or more comments. I could learn so much just listening to the conversations. I’m not sure what happened but I miss how it used to be here.

          • susan

            Do you remember when Walid asked if we would remember him awhile back when the site was busy? It’s because he knew ahead of time that most of us would go our own way once we had a President we could trust in. I learned a lot about Catholicisn too. So much so that I found it’s truths irrefutable and became Catholic. 🙂
            Remember when Paul spoke this?
            * Every high priest is taken from among men and made their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.*
            2
            He is able to deal patiently* with the ignorant and erring, for he himself is beset by weakness
            3
            and so, for this reason, must make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people.a
            4
            No one takes this honor upon himself but only when called by God, just as Aaron was.b
            5
            In the same way, it was not Christ who glorified himself in becoming high priest, but rather the one who said to him:
            “You are my son;
            this day I have begotten you”;c
            6
            just as he says in another place:*
            “You are a priest forever
            according to the order of Melchizedek.”d
            7
            In the days when he was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to the one who was able to save him from death,* and he was heard because of his reverence.e
            8
            Son though he was,* he learned obedience from what he suffered;f
            9
            and when he was made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him,g
            10
            declared by God high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.h
            Exhortation to Spiritual Renewal.
            11
            * About this we have much to say, and it is difficult to explain, for you have become sluggish in hearing.
            12
            Although you should be teachers by this time, you need to have someone teach you again the basic elements of the utterances of God. You need milk, [and] not solid food.i
            13
            Everyone who lives on milk lacks experience of the word of righteousness, for he is a child.
            14
            But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties are trained by practice to discern good and evil.
            * [5:1–10] The true humanity of Jesus (see note on Heb 2:5–18) makes him a more rather than a less effective high priest to the Christian community. In Old Testament tradition, the high priest was identified with the people, guilty of personal sin just as they were (Heb 5:1–3). Even so, the office was of divine appointment (Heb 5:4), as was also the case with the sinless Christ (Heb 5:5). For Heb 5:6, see note on Ps 110:4. Although Jesus was Son of God, he was destined as a human being to learn obedience by accepting the suffering he had to endure (Heb 5:8). Because of his perfection through this experience of human suffering, he is the cause of salvation for all (Heb 5:9), a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek (Heb 5:10; cf. Heb 5:6 and Heb 7:3).

            * [5:1] To offer gifts and sacrifices for sins: the author is thinking principally of the Day of Atonement rite, as is clear from Heb 9:7. This ritual was celebrated to atone for “all the sins of the Israelites” (Lv 16:34).

            * [5:2] Deal patiently: the Greek word metriopathein occurs only here in the Bible; this term was used by the Stoics to designate the golden mean between excess and defect of passion. Here it means rather the ability to sympathize.

            * [5:6–8] The author of Hebrews is the only New Testament writer to cite Ps 110:4, here and in Heb 7:17, 21, to show that Jesus has been called by God to his role as priest. Heb 5:7–8 deal with his ability to sympathize with sinners, because of his own experience of the trials and weakness of human nature, especially fear of death. In his present exalted state, weakness is foreign to him, but he understands what we suffer because of his previous earthly experience.

            * [5:7] He offered prayers…to the one who was able to save him from death: at Gethsemane (cf. Mk 14:35), though some see a broader reference (see note on Jn 12:27).

            * [5:8] Son though he was: two different though not incompatible views of Jesus’ sonship coexist in Hebrews, one associating it with his exaltation, the other with his preexistence. The former view is the older one (cf. Rom 1:4).

            * [5:11–6:20] The central section of Hebrews (5:11–10:39) opens with a reprimand and an appeal. Those to whom the author directs his teaching about Jesus’ priesthood, which is difficult to explain, have become sluggish in hearing and forgetful of even the basic elements (Heb 5:12). But rather than treating of basic teachings, the author apparently believes that the challenge of more advanced ones may shake them out of their inertia (therefore, Heb 6:1). The six examples of basic teaching in Heb 6:1–3 are probably derived from a traditional catechetical list. No effort is made to address apostates, for their very hostility to the Christian message cuts them off completely from Christ (Heb 6:4–8). This harsh statement seems to rule out repentance after apostasy, but perhaps the author deliberately uses hyperbole in order to stress the seriousness of abandoning Christ. With Heb 6:9 a milder tone is introduced, and the criticism of the community (Heb 6:1–3, 9) is now balanced by an expression of confidence that its members are living truly Christian lives, and that God will justly reward their efforts (Heb 6:10). The author is concerned especially about their persevering (Heb 6:11–12), citing in this regard the achievement of Abraham, who relied on God’s promise and on God’s oath (Heb 6:13–18; cf. Gn 22:16), and proposes to them as a firm anchor of Christian hope the high priesthood of Christ, who is now living with God (Heb 6:19–20).

            Attacking the sins within ourselves and our communities is unpopular. No one wants to get attacked by the sodomites. Or the anti-immigration groups. Or pointing out that nationalism has its groups of extremism too. It’s very interesting because our Lord encountered these same issues. His teachings and instructions caused many to fall away and even plan for His crucifixion. As it was in the days of Noah means that few were paying attention. Even though Noah was building a huge ark…apparently no one believed a flood was coming by the time the ark was finished. How many days did they have to live in the ark before the flood came? What was that like to hear the people outside mocking them? Doubting them? There are so many parallels to our times and theirs.

            Oh. And here are the songs on the flip side. 🙂

        CTyank,

        Just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge your response and say ‘thank you.’ I have enjoyed the camaraderie we share here between you and I, and others. There are many people I have the utmost respect for here.

        This isn’t an appropriate forum to debate my concerns or outline my reasons for these concerns with article quotes, Catholic doctrine (and our traditional understanding of certain matters) etc, beyond the bare basic points already shared.

        I don’t have ‘moderators’ advantage, which makes this an uneven playing field.

        Besides, whatever our differences at the end of the day, we are all Catholics and should respect each other as such. The Shoebat’s do excellent work in areas and are really on point. I wish them every success. But yes, balance is very important to me. That’s why I try to find commentators who are logically consistent and balanced in their views, treating everyone the same whether German or American, Japanese or Chinese, Turkish or Russian.

        I don’t buy into the narrative, “This one is a sheep nation therefore they get a pass. This one is a goat nation therefore we must crucify them.”

        The contraceptive mentality of our culture today, both my nation and yours, has lead to the greatest genocide of human beings mankind has ever seen i.e. abortion. Demonising nations for past genocides while we continue to wage genocide on our own is highly hypocritical and unbalanced in my view.

        Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, and to everyone here at shoebat.com.

        Your brother in Christ Jesus.

      WTH. Are you offended Theodore called out Duerto on his evil agenda? The only thing Theodore failed to mention is the obvious that this man is a Freemasons puppet fulfilling the devil’s deeds.

  • AflowerofStTherese

    Theodore, believe me when I say this. The Philippines is blessed with holy padre-pio quality priests leading the faithful to heaven. They are fighting the good fight for souls despite the fact that the nation seems to be in Satan’s grip.

    Shout out to the Catholic pinoys attending the 4am mass 9 days before Christmas. Lord only knows how much I want to join yet can’t wake up that early.
