Bables backs SOGIE bill but stresses no law can teach respect

Inquirer Breaking News - 3 hours 57 min ago
MANILA, Philippines --- Actor Christian Bables is all for the passage of the Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression (SOGIE) bill, but he points out no law can teach a person how to "respect, understand and love." "Dapat na siyang maipatupad para guided na ng law 'yung mga tao," Bables said Tuesday when asked for his opinion about the bill after the press conference of his upcoming movie "The Panti Sisters." "But wala naman kasing law or kahit anong libro ang makakapagturo sa isang tao kung paano rumespeto, umunawa at magmahal. Nasa sariling desisyon pa rin 'yan kung paano ka magiging tao sa kapwa mo tao," he stressed. On the matter of transgender men and ...

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 16 min ago
MANILA, Philippines --- Interior Secretary Eduardo Ao said Tuesday that he would support the proposed amendments to the Human Security Act (HSA), particularly the longer wiretapping and detention period as part of efforts to counter terrorism.

Recession coming? Trump insists U.S. economy ‘very strong’

Inquirer Breaking News - 6 hours 19 min ago
WASHINGTON --- The "fundamentals" of the U.S. economy are solid, the White House asserted, invoking an ill-fated political declaration of a decade ago amid mounting concern that a recession could imperil President Donald Trump's reelection. Exhibiting no such concern, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway declared to reporters on Monday, "The fact is, the fundamentals of our economy are very strong." It's a phrase with a history. Republican John McCain was accused of being out of touch when he made a similar declaration during the 2008 presidential campaign just hours before investment bank Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, setting off a stock market crash and global financial...

Inquirer Breaking News - 6 hours 19 min ago

But there's nothing like winning a Grand Slam and San Miguel's top officials have made it clear that they want no less than the cherry on top to end the season. "I would just like to remind a simple wish of mine: A Grand Slam," said Bobby Huang, president of San Miguel Brewery, in Filipino during the team's vict...
