Same-sex marriage ‘not a religious issue,’ possible under PH constitution, says Protestant pastor

SAME-SEX marriage is possible under the Philippine constitution and should be treated as a matter of “equal protection” under law rather than a religious issue, a Protestant pastor who conducts same-sex weddings said.

Rev. Ceejay Agbayani, founding pastor of the LGBTS Christian Church Inc., an independent Protestant church, argued that procreation should not be the basis of marriage. “Mutual love, respect, and support [is] the essence of marriage. Walang procreation doon,” Agbayani told the Varsitarian in an interview.
