Philippine bishops speak out against divorce bill
August 05, 2016
Bishops in the Philippines are speaking out against a bill that would legalize divorce.
“Our laws should strengthen families rather than weaken them,” said Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo of Manila. “We already witnessed the havoc that divorce is doing in many countries.”
“Divorce spawns a host of problems, especially for children,” added Bishop Ruperto Santos of Balanga. “Let us not move towards weakening marriage but instead endeavor to encourage maturity, fidelity, self-sacrifice, respect, and follow the right path in all our human relationships especially in building up families, the foundation of society.”
