Superme Court of the Philippines junked the petition of "SAME- SEX MARRIAGE"


Manila, Philippines (September 3, 2019)- The Supreme Court of the Philippines junked the petition to legalize the same-sex marriage in the country filed by  Atty. Jesus Falcis due to its "lack of standing" and for "failing to raise an actual facts.

Last 2015, Atty. Falcis file a petition asking the SC to declare Articles 1 and 2 of the Family Code unconstitutional. Where in the provisions of the said measure limits marriage between a man and a woman. And aside from that he also wants to nullify Articles 46(4) and 55 (6) of the Family Code, which includes homosexuality or lesbianism as legal grounds for annulment and legal separation.

 The supreme court said they recognized the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI) community's history of discrimination and marginalization, it clarified that it is only through actual facts and "real adversarial presentations" that the high court can fully weigh the implications and consequences of the plea's declarations.

"To forget the bare rudiments of court procedure and decorum-- or worse-- to purport to know them, but really, only to exploit them by way of propaganda -- and then, to jump headlong into the taxing endeavor of constitutional litigation is a contemptuous betrayal of the high standards of the legal profession," the court said in its statement.
