Bishop fumes as eight gay couples get married

BAGUIO Bishop Carlito Cenzon yesterday lambasted officiating pastors and gay couples in wedding rites in Baguio City Saturday.

Cenzon said he could not understand how such a “wedding” rite could take place given the prohibitions under legal and Catholic Church laws.

“Ito ay isang malinaw na insulto sa ating civil code at sa katuruan ng Simbahang Katolika. Kawawa naman ang mga taong ito, wala ng kinikilalang Diyos. Wala na rin silang paggalang sa kanilang sarili. Dapat na matigil ang kahibangang ito,” said Cenzon over Church-run Radio Veritas.

“Ang mga nagpakasal at nagkasal ay mayroong mga problema sa pag-iisip,” he added.

  • On the one hand, Bishop Cenzon is correct in saying that the same-sex marriages are not recognized by Philippine law, so they are void ab initio. On the other hand, legally the civil marriage IS the only marriage that matters, contrary to what the CBCP believes. So what’s the point of even mentioning Catholic Church laws, except to once again shove Catholic morality in the faces of those who do not accept it to be truth? =/
