Rep. Lito Atienza a homophobe? LGBTQIA+ supporters grill politician’s stance on gay marriage

The career politician was also advised to reject his pro-life stance because it could cost him the election

House Deputy Speaker Lito Atienza took a lot of heat for sharing his unpopular view on same-sex marriage.

Atienza, the vice-presidential candidate of Senator Manny Pacquiao, went on ANC and pointed out the possible deficiencies in gay marriage.

“When you have two fathers, two mothers, you cannot call it the definition of a regular family. A family is a mother, who is female, and a father, who is male, and a number of children caused by reproduction,” he said.

He also highlighted the obvious reason why he is against the practice.

“We don’t believe in same-sex marriage because marriage is meant for a male and a female and the purpose is reproduction,” he explained.

The career politician was also advised to reject his pro-life stance because it could cost him the election.

“I was advised by well-meaning friends to not be vocal about my pro-life advocacy because I might not win the election but that has been disproven time and again.”

Those who support same-sex marriage blasted Atienza relentlessly.

Comedian Pipay replied sarcastically.

Some say Atienza’s view is obsolete.

Fellow vice presidential aspirant Walden Bello disagreed respectfully with Atienza’s view.


The fact is gay families already exist in the country, it’s just that nothing is official yet legally. Queers believe marriage should be between two people who love each other and shouldn’t be solely based on gender.
