So I believe wedding would always be of importance to marriage.
*Marriage is once-in–a–lifetime symbol of everlasting commitment for two people whose love for each other is bound by another force — God. It means putting God as a mediator in everything the couple will do. Yes, marriage is all about threefold bond: The Man, The Woman and God —— for a successful and everlasting relationship. Thank you.
*Nowadays, pre-marital sex, same sex marriage is rampant and is being toyed around. Marriage is a symbol of undying honesty and loyalty to our partners.

In our modern time, the true meaning of marriage is being lost, the essence of it forgotten. We often think that marriage only composes of Man and Woman alone, what we fail to realize that it is important to have God in marriage. Without God, a healthy and lively marriage will be impossible to attain.

It is about two people making change. And it is about doing the will of God with your partner forever. And because of its sacredness, it is but natural to give importance to marriage.

Current and Social Issues

I am not in favor of sex change. The primary purpose of our procreative power is the marital obligation of a man and a woman to produce offspring for the continuous existence of man. The physical and emotional differences, not only the sex organ determines the sex. A person who has undergone sex change would not be able to perform the extended responsibilities of a father or a mother to the child. Sex change will cost the disruption of man’s continued existence and will result to confusion. I am not in favor of it.
What is your stand on transgender being allowed in the Miss Universe?
Should plastic surgery be allowed in beauty contests? Why?
Plastic surgery should not be allowed in beauty contests. Beauty contests are celebrations of natural beauty. An act of acknowledging and honoring the beauty that God has given unto us and not of any kind of beauty that technology could offer to us.
Do you think plastic surgery is an option for those who are less fortunate in the looks department? Why?
*I think plastic surgery is an option. Let us utilize the technology that God has given unto us for the betterment of everyone. Changing your look does not mean changing your definition as a person, as long as you remain essentially who you are, that’s what really matters at all.
*If these people are deprived of acceptance and love because of their looks, then why should we deny them the option available for everyone? It is just but right to take care, nourish and beautify our body which is said to be the temple of God containing the heart where Jesus lives. That would be all, thank you.
Are you in favor of cloning?
I am not in favor of human cloning. It is because a baby is made through and out of love, and not of any laboratory apparatuses. For animal cloning, it is okay. This will serve as a free gateway for new discoveries especially for food because it will increase our supply to answer our growing needs.
Are you in favor of the Reproductive Health Bill?
*The Reproductive Health Bill has become an issue to both the government and the Church. However, since contraceptives are being sold now in the market, at least it should be sold properly.
Contraceptives should only be sold to married couples by providing marriage ID’s and any violation must be sanctioned and punished by the law so that the youths would think twice before engaging in pre-marital sex and eventually suffer unwanted pregnancy. If this would be considered on the Reproductive Health Bill, I will be in favor of it.
*As a youth who supports the development of life to the fullest, I am in favor of a safe, healthy and responsible family lifestyle. However, I do not support no favor the Reproductive Health Bill. It is because the said bill is not the solution to overpopulation – the very thing the RH Bill’s objective is. The focus should be on the improvement of the literacy and moral uplift of the country.
