Filipinos for Secular Government

“The separation of Church and State shall be inviolable.”
— Article 2, section 6 of the Philippine Constitution

“No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… No religious test shall be required for the exercise of civil or political rights.”
— Article 3, section 5 of the Philippine Constitution

separation of church and stateIn the Philippines, the separation of church and state is in danger.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) continues to meddle in politics, most recently with their blackmail of politicians who support the Reproductive Health Bill.

Not only do they impede reproductive education, they set it back by spreading unfounded lies and misinformation.

The CBCP has also opposed the Magna Carta of Women, which has recently been endangered by another religious group, the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP).

The CEAP wants to exempt Catholic schools from a provision that protects the rights of unwed mothers from discrimination.

The Filipinos for Secular Government group was formed for those who have had enough of the Church interfering in matters of the State.

If these priests want to influence the government let them run for public office. But until they do, let us remind them to keep out of it.

Please support us by joining our Facebook group and inviting others to join as well. Let’s keep Church and State separate!
