THE DIFFERENCE OF HOLY UNION AND MATRIMONY.

The difference of Holy Union and Matrimony is that Matrimony has its legal entity while the Holy Union is pure ritual. Unfortunately, the Philippines have no Marriage Equality Law or the Same-Sex Marriage Law yet. LGBTS CHRISTIAN CHURCH INC. advocates for equal protections of the law, thus we support marriage equality bill pass into law in the Philippines. Furthermore, the Holy Union Rite conducted in the Philippines are not yet recognized by the State but in some countries which have  Marriage Equality Law e.g. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden,  in the USA, Portugal and in Europe to name a few. Couples can use the Certificate of Holy Union issued by the LGBTS CHRISTIAN CHURCH INC. as Proof of Togethernes, a partner can petition his or her partner in a countries where there are Marriage Equality Law, as mentioned.

IS THE RITE OF HOLY UNION ILLEGAL? The Philippine Constitution guarantees that the Freedom of Religion is protected, in Article III, Section 5 of the Bill of Rights states that.. “No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed. No religious test shall be required for the exercise of civil or political rights”

THE ESSENCE OF THE RITE OF THE HOLY UNION IS THE “EXCHANGING OF THE VOWS” OF TWO LOVING PERSON THAT PROMISE TO BE TOGETHER FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES WITH OR WITHOUT THE LEGAL PAPERS. THIS IS A PRIVATE OR PUBLIC CEREMONY TO BE CONDUCTED PURPOSELY FOR THE CELEBRATION OF UNION OF TWO SOULS.

    1. Zgeb maganda nga sana kung legal na sa atin. Kaso wala pa tayong Marriage Equality Law sa atin. Hindi naman bawal o illegal ang kasal ng same sex or lgbt dahil church wedding Holy Union Rite naman ito. Furthermore yung Certificate of Holy Union ay pwedeng magamit as Proof of Togetherness sa bansang may Marriage equality law. Pls contact me sa 09955086788
