Duterte tells LGBTs they are not abnormal: Ang nagkamali Diyos!
President Rodrigo Duterte believes that lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders should not think of themselves as abnormal.
“Are we normal? Yes. Are you normal? Yes. Ang tomboy ba abnormal? No, of course, not. Why? Because we are all creations of God,” said Duterte in a speech before the LGBT community in Davao City Sunday night.
He said if there was anybody to be blamed for these questions on sexuality, they should blame God.
“Ang nagkamali ang Diyos,” said Duterte.
In the same event, Duterte declared he had nothing against same sex marriage or less than nine months after backtracking on his campaign promise to legalize gay marriage.
“There is no gender because you can be a he or she… That’s their culture. It does not apply to us. We are Catholics and there is the Civil Code, which says that you can only marry a woman for me… a woman to marry a man.That’s our law so why would you accept that gender?” said Duterte in a speech last March.
