I see this “Anti-Discrimination Bill” being talked about earlier in the news here in the PI, I say cool. At the same time, question: “It’s 2012? Is this just another act of politicking? Etc.”
I wondered why this isn’t already inclusive; as part of the PI’s Bill of Rights (Article 3)? A quick research of the Philippine’s Constitution (been a while since I’ve seen this as you may know), ain’t these enough common sense to abide by?
- Article 3, Section 1
- Article 3, Section 5
- Preamble, “under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace…”
You would also think for a population that is dominantly Christian (90%+), a religion that holds “Love” as the greatest commandment (all religions and belief systems do), wouldn’t this be instilled from the start of one’s upbringing and social interactions. But I guess, that’s just part of the struggle.
We live to be our best self one day at a time. We’re just human.
