Nicodemo Ferrer, Lucenito Tagle, & Elias Yusoph Comelec’s Morality Police Junked Ang Ladlad

The Commission on Election (COMELEC) is now the guardians of morality with the 3 stooges errrr commissioners of the 2nd division appointing themselves as the morality police, judge and legislator all rolled into one. Who says Father Damaso is dead and just a fictional character, with the likes of Commissioners Nicodemo Ferrer, Lucenito Tagle, and Elias Yusoph they have miraculously resurrected the ghost of Father Damaso taking a life of its own out of the dusty pages of Noli Me Tangere (Touch me not).

The 3 stooges junked the accreditation of Ang Ladlad (out of the closet) a gay party list vying for the 2010 election on the grounds that their party advocates "sexual immorality" and "immoral doctrines." These are serious charges that should be back-upped by compelling evidence but not with the 3 stooges in rendering their “brilliant decision” as seen in ABS-CBN report below:
Page 5 of the ruling states that Ang Ladlad's definition of the LGBT sector as a marginalized sector who are disadvantaged because of their sexual orientation "makes it crystal clear that the petitioner tolerates immorality which offends religious beliefs."
Wait a minute here, gays have different sexual orientation therefore they tolerate immorality? Well, being gay of course is offensive to fanatical Taliban religious crackpots but why in the name of closet queen 3 stooges will that stop gay from participating as a political party? This is the Philippines and not Iran or other fundamental Islamist state where they flog and hung gays to death for being gay. Or are we not in a democracy but in a new Ultra Christian Islamic Taliban state concoction of the Comelec 3 stooges?

Ferrer, Tagle and Yusoph are definitely in the wrong place they should not be running or cheating errr seating as commissioners of an electoral body but running inside the grounds of National Mental Hospital. They have a serious problem but then again maybe the mental institution is not also where they should be because being dumb and stupid is not curable or is it a mental illness.

The 3 stooges should leave the morality policing to the religious priest and bishops even those sex errr sects who wants to save our soul from eternal damnation but as long as our feet are firmly on the ground and not six feet under our government and religion should be separated as stated in the constitution. No wonder our electoral system is so fraudulent prone with criminals getting elected because the people cheating errr seating as commissioners are inventing rules and guidelines base on their ignorant interpretation of their faith and others, when they should stick to what is written by man or even gay who maybe hiding in the closet.

There are gays, who are pedophile that is a fact, but it does not follow that all gays are guilty of the perversion committed by Romeo Jalosjos who is a straight guy or is he? If there is anyone that posed a grave danger to the youths it is none other than the likes of Jalosjos who was allowed to build a children theme park and Gloria Arroyo who even inaugurated the park instead of ordering its closure or prohibiting the pedophile to even construct the site.

Now if it is about morality, is it moral allowing a pedophile to have his own children theme park? How about allowing First Boor sister Lourdes Arroyo access to pork barrel through the backdoor as representative of Balut vendor (fertile egg) party list Kasanga when she probably do not even eat or tasted balut, or come close to being a vendor much less marginalized since she came from the landed arroyos.

This independent constitutional body cannot even haul to court Garcillano and Lintang Bedol for possessing ugly faces errrr electoral fraud and here they are trying to portray themselves as guardians of morality? Who do they think they are a blogger named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the Iranian President who says that there are no gays in Iran? At the rate these losers render their decision on who should participate in the election they might as well appoint the likes of Taliban crackpots to run our electoral system and rid the nation of gays so we can have the same problem in that part of the world where men rape men.

Now this makes me wonder why they hate gays so much that they will deny them participation in the party list on flimsy ignorant grounds, well although there are some instances where some of rabid anti-gays turn out to be closet queen that is probably not the case. But who knows, perhaps gay “problem” in the family that they vent their frustration on the whole community maybe the case but in fairness we should not indulge in baseless insinuations. But really, I see no logic in their decision and to use faith as guidelines when there are rules written that should guide them and they have to surf the net only shows they are seriously not fit to tackle the responsibilities and duties of an election commissioner.
