Senator Imee Marcos on Friday said “amen” to Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions.

“Sabi ng Santo Papa, ‘Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God.’ Tayong lahat ay anak ng Diyos, na lahat ring minamahal ng Panginoon. Amen po,” she told reporters.

Marcos said she hopes the pope’s recognition of LGBT relationships will help her in passing her Senate bill recognizing civil unions.

“At sana magka-hearing na yung aking Senate Bill 417 na kumikilala sa ‘civil union’ na binanggit ni Pope Francis, kung saan may karapatan at obligasyon ang bawat partner ng isang mahabang samahan,” Marcos said.

“On a personal note, sa dinami-dami kong kaibigang LGBT, na may talino at sipag, na sumikat at kumita, ang dami rin sa kanila o sa kanilang partner ang tumandang mag-isa, di mabayaran ang ospital, at hanggang sa paglibing, kapos pa rin ang pamilya,” she said.

Senate President Tito Sotto earlier said he doubts if the Pope’s statements will help legalize same-sex unions in the Philippines.
