she's just telling the truth.
The Bible also says that if you work on a Sabbath, you should be PUT TO DEATH (Exodus 35:2), You cannot shave your face (Leviticus 19:27), wear cloth of 2 different fabrics, plant 2 different seeds in the same field, touch the skin of a dead pig (like a basketball), and eating shrimps is an abomination (Leviticus 11:9-12).Is this the truth you're talking about?
what you posted is not a mere "truth", the term truth is different from commandment. And what you posted is a command from the bible. The term truth pertains to statements, ideas, facts, etc., English 101 says the same. Declarative sentence is different from imperative sentence. Hopefully it helped you.
i thought the shrimp part were from the old testament. OnT: the tweets were a bit insensitive but she apologized already.Medyo naging parang know-it-all nga lang vibe nya sa kin with all the christianity reference. I'm a christian but i hate it when people force feed bible phrases down other people's throat.
Correct, that's English 101. Basic meaning of 'truth'. And not the bigger, more abstract meaning of the word (which is also part of the language, though not '101'). Sorry, I thought the statement was less shallow than what you intended it to be.My mistake :-)
It is pure hatred and bigotry from her...Hatred is hatred even you veil it with "good intentions". If her belief is based on the bible. If she is really a bible believer as she claims...then she should also tweet about the evils of working on Sundays, eating "unclean" animals and should encouraging polygamy AS THE OLD TESTAMENT DICTATES. By the way I do remember her eating pork in one of the segments of extra challenge so shall i throw a rock at her narrow minded head?and if she is really reading the bible she should know about 1 Timothy 2:12I do not let women teach men or have authority over them. Let them listen quietly.
Na-deceive ata sya ng ex kaya super ganyan ang advocacy ni ateng.
she already apologized on her twitter account:@miriamq I'm sorry LGBT. Perhaps I was too harsh with the words I used. Will do my best to be more sensitive. #respect #nobodysperfect #grace
Not harsh. Self righteous
My take is that she meant what she said, except that she used harsh words. She was not really sorry and meant every harsh word she said.
Ignoranteng bitchesa. Hahaha.
Isusumbong kita kay Lady GaGa! :D
At ano gagawin ni Lady Gaga para sa yo? Hahaha. Kantahan ka nang "Born this Way"? Haist!!
The Bible says that Christians are not to boast in their own righteousness.
tama naman siya eh.. peru kanya kanya naman tau pananagutan sa Dios..
sige simulan mo na panagutan ang spelling mo teh.
Teh teh teh
Literal masyado tingin nya sa Bible. Kala ko matalino sya?
Easy for her to say coz she's not gay! She doesn't know how it feels like to be gay. She doesn't understand what gays are going through. Palie lie from the devil ka pang nalalaman! Kung makapanghusga ka, friends kayo ni satanas?! Hahaha!
The biggest ignorant bigot right now in MNL
Obviously majority didn't like what she said or specifically, HOW SHE USED SUCH WORDS to express herself. But I don't think making derogatory remarks against her and her religion will earn the respect LGBT members or supporters deserve.She has resorted to narrow-mindedness but I don't think being condescending will help. It will actually prove her shallow point.
I watch the bottomline at anc and she is really feeling righteous...mga tao sila at hindi mistake...am not lesbian or gay...But i support their rights and understand their feelings. Parepareho lang naman tayong humihinga at kumakain...so what makes her think she is better person or above all of us...kakainis at nakakahighblood!!!
And then there are these self-righteous people who claim to know a lot about God and religion who exclaims righteousness on God's behalf and tell everyone what is evil and what is not. They are the ones who are fond of saying "God bless you" - end of argument, end of discussion.They are the ones who exemplify how narrow minded the traditional christians and catholic and how literal they intepret the Bible
Korek. Deserve mo ang standing ovation.
religion brings out the most evil in humans....holocaust,jihad,genocide!!!
very well comment! serry, pero i find some christians ang OA. just saying.
Mismo! :)Haha I remember watching a Coldplay concert back when I lived in Cali... there was some nutcase with a megaphone, saying we were all going to hell for watching a concert, then quoted some Bible verse about how God hates loud noises or something like that./csb
It is not a sin to be born homosexual. But to tamper with your body in such a way as to make a male body have female attributes is not right. It is also not right to consider a male who underwent sex change as a female.I think Miriam's rants still stemmed from that Miss Universe issue about accepting transgenders in the contest.
tampering? eh paano na yung mga nagpaparetoke for vanity, mali din ba yun? the way i see it its your body and its your decision. isa pa, you should google yung process bago na approve ang sex re-assignment procedures, there are really people who were born in the "wrong" bodies, kaya nga transgenders. and kung yun ang magpapasaya sa kanila, then nobody has the right to prevent them
At ano naman paki nya dun at nagpapa affect sya. She has too much time in her hands...
People who claim to know God does not make them holier than anyone else. Masyado syang mayabang!

It's her "truth" so let's just respect that. in the same way that you can't force other people to accept your own "truth", let her be... mutual respect is the key.
Tama. Each one has his own opinion. And each one believes tama opinion niya. Kaya to each his own na lang.
teh anung pinagsasabi mu na each one has his own opinion? natwa naman ako dun hahaha
She's entitled to her opinions, sure, but she needs to be mindful of who she'll be hurting in the process of expressing them.- Lea Salonga
Even if I pretend all my life that I'm some goddess-like, Asian nobility, I'm not one. Nor should I be entitled to the label.
And what does the Bible say about separated women?
Correct ka jan.. Makapgsalita kc xa about god and bible, akala mo naman walang nalabag na rule..
ano ang nalabag sa rule kung ang isang babae ay trinato parang hayop dahil nakipag hiwalay sa asawa? so ibig sabihin wala ka nang karapatan kahit binababoy ka na ng asawa mo eh wala ka nang gagawin te'? battered wife syndrome yan get help na lang.
HAHAHAHAHA! LOVE IT
Anonymous 10:15am, read the Bible again and maybe you'll discover how it says that women are inferior to men, women should be stoned to death, women can be traded by their fathers, etc. Ironic how Miriam bases her bullsh*t from the same book, don't you think?
kayo na lang ang magbasa sumasakit ang ulo ko andaming violence kaya sa bibliya at kayo na lang ang magpabato kung gusto nyo masakit yun ano.....mabuti na lang pinanganak ako sa pilipinas kahit papano civilized at may freedom of speech....pinalaki at minahal ako ng tatay ko dahil may takot ang mga magulang ko sa dyos.....ang mga anak na babae ay mga anghel na biyaya ng dyos..... di katulad sa ibang bansa na ang mga babae ay tinatrato na mas mababang uri kesa sa aso.....ang mga bading naman kinakapon pag nahuli kaya nagsisipagtago sila tapos libo-libong "oh my god" ang sinasabi para wag lang mahuli....
Anonymous 10:15 - ikaw ba ang ex husband niya at alam mong battered wife siya? alam mo both sides of the story? seriously? takes two to tango, especially in marriage
she was battered? i think not physically. she claimed she was "battered" emotionally because the former husband refused to "touch" her. later on, the husband turned out to be gay, yata (?) i'm really not sure though, that's just how i understood her plight before.
Religion and sexuality are two of the most sensitive issues to discuss. everyone has different opinions so let's leave it like that. RESPECT is the key.
sariling pananaw niya yan. huwag na lang pansinin.
i think she tweeted this after she guested sa show ni A on GMA News TV. forgot the name of the show. sinabi kasi don ng guest na transgender that para sa kanya, since bata pa daw sya alam nya ng girl sya and that being born a boy is just a simple mistake made by God. and mukhang shocked si A, so he asked 'nagkamali sino?', the transgender merely answered 'ang Diyos'. guest din don si Miriam, and being a devoted Christian, mukhang na offend sya with what she heard. i dont blame her. kasi kahit ako who loves LGBT community was offended. its okay being Gay, Lesbian, Transexual, Bi or even Straight, but blaming your sexuality to God is the most appalling conviction I've ever heard.
me pinanggalingan nman pala eh. re guest, ndi nagkakamali si god, sya ang mali! mortal sin ang sinabi nya, act of blasphemy :(
ay ganun? nirecognize niya pang God tapos sasabihin niya nagkamali si God? bwahahaha!! God and mistake don't go with each other.
ay naku, maglinis kayo ng tenga! ang sinabi nya ang ngkamali sa pgbigay ng gender "ang doktor"... kelan pa naging diyos ang doktor?! di kaya kayo ang blasphemous?
What is the truth???!!! That's applicable or acceptable to all???! The truth is.......
how bout pre marital sex??? don't tell me she didn't engaged with it, so practice what you preach
Uh-huh... ang grammar masakit sa mata.
hindi sa bangs masakit, di ko kinaya, wag n kc mag ingles kapag di marunong.hahaha
Kayo na ang grammar checker mga teh... Didnt engage... Nagpapractice yung tao eh... Hahah
tama, dapat yang grammar na yan ang sinabi ni Miriam na kasinunfalingan ng demonyo
she's very vocal and truth about her conviction of what she really believes in..... ang mali ay talagang mali ginagawan ng excuse para maging tama pero mali pa rin..... ang masama kung dakdak ng dakdak na makadyos pero saliwat naman sa kinikilos ibang usapan na yun........ "walk the walk, talk the talk" mga peeps.
i think what you meant is walk the talk and talk the walk
no comment sa mantra...tawa lang ako
walk the walk means to prove that you are not just talking, but you believe in what you talk about or what you believe in and you perform it.in other words.....practice what you preach....it's the oppsite of being a hypocrite.
ugh... such hypocrisy. people like her have pushed me further towards atheism.
Agreed. Being a closet atheist here in the Philippines makes me feel protective of Ladlad even if I'm straight. Mahirap talagang maging minority dito sa Pilipinas.
i can relate to closet atheist - buti na lang wala ako sa pinas that i can be open about it...except to other filipinos. lol
It's comforting to know there are others in the closet like me. For the exact same reasons too. Di ko talaga masabi sa family ko or sa officemates ko. They're just so narrowminded and it's frustrating. That's why I can really sympathize and relate to the LGBT community even if I'm straight. To my beki friends, more power!
Homophobic b*tch.. Akala ko naman, me pinagaralan ka, Ms. Quiambao. Ang kitid ng utak mo..
as for the lgbt, specially Ladlad, they will welcome her opinion and i hope she does, too.peaceful coexistence and respect for diversity are what we need : )
It her tweet. Its her opinion. Let her be
It is very brave of MQ to post such tweets pero dapat pinangatawan na nya. Sabi nga, think before you click or else, suffer the consequences. In my opinion, twitter is not the venue to air such opinions. Merong mas appropriate na venue na hindi ka makaka offend ng tao.
God Prefers Kind Atheists Over Hateful Christians
PREACH! Grabe. Your comment is so deep. I love it.
who told you this? what are your basis for this very strong conclusion? God spoke with you? Or opinion mo lang? you can not speak in behalf or the Most Sovereign Creator.
As an atheist, I've got nothing against God. It's his fan club I can't stand.
Thats because you know God by name only and not by his words. Open your mind and your heart by reading the bible then justify your comment :)
"Anonymous Apr 29, 2012 10:25 AM" <-- eh ikaw, pwede? Si Miriam, pwede? Let's face it, everything that is said about religion is filtered through the lens of human experience.As for "Anonymous Apr 29, 2012 07:43 PM"Actually, I would ask YOU to follow your own advice. From what I know, a true follower of God is someone who LIVES his words, not just reads or memorizes them.A lot of people say they're Christians -- they're duly baptized, they go to church regularly, they pray regularly, they can quote Bible phrases -- but they treat the people around them like crap. They don't treat their househelp well, they refuse to associate with non-Christians, instead of treating everyone like 'brothers' they see non-Christians as second class citizens and judge and criticize them. I know of some hardcore Christians who, back in college, were remiss in their duties as students -- they showed up to class late (if at all), didn't do their homework, slacked off, and were inconsiderate towards the people around them.On the other hand, you have atheists -- maybe they were former Christians. Or maybe they just grew up in an environment where they weren't exposed to religion. But they're nice people. Really nice people. In fact, I'd rather be friends with THEM than the so-called Christians.So who do you think is the better person? If you're saying that the Christian is still the better person, then maybe you should rethink your ideas of what makes a good person. Nasa line na nga e, kind atheist vs. hateful Christian. Kind vs hateful, tapos Christian pa din choice mo? The atheist is "Christian" in his actions, and the Christian is not... It's actions, and not labels, that count.
i may not agree with her but let's just respect her opinion, as she should respect others'.
Oo nga naman, tama si Anonymous 4/29/12 04:42 am. Kasi naman itong mga born again, kaya nga nag-born again e dahil nakapagdesisyon sila na magbago at ibigay na sa Diyos ang buhay nila. Naturalmente, to follow God is to know Him and have a relationship with Him. paano nga naman nila magagawa yon kung hindi nila basahin at i-internalize yung nababasa nila sa Bibliya. At kung may revelation sila from the Bible, para sa kanila, it would be a sin not to share it. Homosexuality kasi is mentioned sa Bible. If she doesn't care for the homosexuals or for those struggling with it, she will just shut up. It takes courage to speak those things, lalo na pa't socially acceptable na ngayon ang homosexual relationship. So I can't blame her.
Yes i also can't blame her. I likewise feel it took much courage to write what she did, esp. this was a former beauty queen, meaning well-versed in PR and keeping quiet when needs be. BUT i also get that being born gay, may be a lot similar to a woman being forced to live like a man or a man being forced to live like a woman. I disagree that it's a choice. People just are. Although I also agree that the controversy regarding Miss Canada shows our world is worsening. Lines are being blurred like never before and morality is on the decline.
She's just saying the truth. Remember Sodom and Gomora?
Question: Are you even sure that the bible is 100% truth and not fiction?
Remember the talking snake? Or the incest? Or how rape victims who don't cry hard enough should get stoned to death? 100% FACTS RIGHT?
100% truth...it is supported by historial evidences. Research and you will see. Mas supported pa yun bible ng history compared sa mga Greek writings and history. :)
Where did you get your research materials? Were they spoonfed to you by your religious group/school/whatever? I've done my own research and sadly, it's different from yours. However, assuming that it IS the truth, why would I follow a book that demeans women and supports other atrocities? Or did you just read the fairytale-ish parts of the bible? :)
You actually mean there are references in the bible showing women being treated badly. However, it was never Jesus who did those atrocities nor justified them. You will find that Jesus gave much importance to women throughout.Please understand the teachings of Jesus in the Bible. Don't take the atrocities you're taking about out of context.
"100% truth...it is supported by historial evidences. Research and you will see. Mas supported pa yun bible ng history compared sa mga Greek writings and history. :)"Haha really? What evidence? Please show me. I've been attending Bible studies and doing research for years and have yet to see this "100% truth supported by historical evidence" you speak of.No seriously, I want to know.
Jesus never mentioned anything about homosexuality the only reference regarding homosexuality was in the old testament where the restriction on what to eat and what to do are in indicated....
it's a free country, so people are allowed to express his/her thoughts as they please. we all have different takes on the issue. you can't please everyone. at least miriam was honest enough with her thoughts. mas dapat pa nga atang tirahin si donald trump who probably allowed transsexuals to join the pageant for media mileage and profit, not because he bowed to pressure from the general public or he actually cares about marginalized sectors.
Miriam, your god is not everyone's god. It's like telling the Muslim men sinful for having many wives.
So anung Gods ng gays and lesbians?
Yung mga masculadong katawan sa tabitabi
its' her opinion about truth, let's just respect it.
What she only wanted is not to allow transgender to be in Bb. Pilipinas pageant, well aminin natin tama rin sya, they can have their own Beauty Pageant. But yeah she said something that is below the belt and she admited that she's wrong and already apologized so lets just give her peace, anyway kriSTD says lets move on. :-)
Its not just about the pageant... Cnbi nya na ang mga bading ay lie from the evil.. Homophobic xa un un
I absolutely abhor it when people ram their beliefs on other people's throats. Just because she chose to live her life a certain way, it does not mean that it's the only and the right way. How dare she say that the LGBT surrounding her in show business are living a lie.
she studied in an exclusive school if i'm not mistaken and yet she is being a hypocrite. maybe she had a phobia in a lesbian relationship before...
studying in an exclusive school does not automatically mean you were a lesbian during your time there
let God be the judge, let Miriam face the LGBT people..goodluck hahahaha
Basta ako ayokong my bakla kahit na operada pa yan sa miss universe or any pageant na pambabae talaga. Yun lang naman ugat nang sentimyenti ni miriam and i agree with her.
Korek! mga baklita kasing ito mga ambisyosa! pwede naman gumawa ng Miss Gay Universe exclusively for them tlaga oh davah!? ang taray!? kalowkah!
Ok, pero kasi sa Canada, transgendered people can be declared LEGALLY another sex from how they were born. So that's why, sa Phils, this won't work (transgender joining) but in Canada, pwede. And you gotta respect their laws.
Mali kasi xa na lie of the evil parang ang perpek na christian naman nya eh divorced nga xa dba... Un ba nasa bible ba yun gawa ba un ng isang christian?
wala naman perfect na tao eh we are all sinners. ung sinasabing born again, hindi ibg sabihin blameless na. they try to adhere to God's laws and hindi maaalis na they fail at times pero basta andun yung pagtry na magbago ng buhay. and then share to other people so that they can help other people do that as well.
let those contests meant for women stay for women. LGBT have their own place and time naman.
Ikaw, FP, ano comment mo? Affected ka ba?
Bakit, part ba ng LGBT community si FP!? Hahahaha!
Kailangan bang maging bakla or lesbian para maging supporter ng LGBT rights? That's like saying men aren't allowed to support women's rights.
To Anonymous Apr 29, 2012 08:30 PM,Ang tanong ay kung affected si FP, hindi kung ano ang standpoint nya. Magbasa muna kasi mabuti bago umeksena, pwede!?
I truly agree that the Ms. Universe pageant is for women only. It's not being discriminating but that's the whole point of the contest, to recognize the beauty of women. It's recognizing the natural beauty of every individual. The tweet os MQ is her opinion.just respect it. Important thing is that she is nice to the people around her
The sad thing is, "recognizing natural beauty" is still a weak argument. How can we be so sure na natural talaga ang beauty ng mga female contestants at wala silang pinaretoke/enhance/augment? Or is it a contest for people with natural vajayjays?
HAHA recognizing the natural beauty of every individual?Um, no. Ms. Universe is a money-making beauty contest run by Donald Trump.Have you actually watched Ms. Universe? Most of the girls there are chosen based on their physical appearance. I'm willing to bet 99.99% of the female population does NOT look like them. It's not about "the natural beauty of every individual." It only celebrates women who are slim, sexy, and conventionally pretty. If it really celebrated the "natural beauty of every individual" we would be seeing women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and not the same model-like, statuesque women over and over again.And for celebrating "natural" beauty, they sure do employ a large number of stylists and makeup artists...
no matter what we do. no matter our gender, God accepts us no matter what.
Kc khit balibaliktarin mo ang gay, gay pa din khit transgender xa or kahit ngpa sex change pa xa,..or mukhang babae n xa,.. D mo pa rin xa matatawag n babae,.. Un lang nmn un,. Un kcng guest s bottomline sinabe n girl n xa,.. Un ang pinaniniwalaan nya in her own opinion,.. Kya para rin nya niloloko sarili nya n babae xa eh alam nmn ng mga tao n gay xa,.. Kaya nabubuhay xa sa kasinungalingan,.
Alam mo bang required na pumasa sa psychologicals test ang mga nagpapaopera? 4 years sila ininterview para lang masiguradong transgender sila... meaning PANINIWALA nila na mali ang katawan nila ... kung ang tawag mo dun kasinungalingan... edi lahat ng taong hindi naniniwala sayo at kay Miariam ay may karapatan ding sabihin na kayo ang nabubuhay sa kasinungalingan. JEJEMON!- Lala Lavandera
As much as I disagree with your opinion, I was prepared to be respectful until I remembered how much I hate people who still use textspeak. You just made everybody else sound smarter, CONGRATS TEH!
korek teh! kaya jan pumasok ang salitang LIE!
kahit na ilang years pa interbyuhin hindi pa rin mababago n una syang nagkaroon ng private part ng lalake,.. thats why he should be male at hindi maaaring maging female,. kaya wag nlng lokohin sarili nila,.. PANINIWALA nila n mali ang katawan nila?? nagmamarunong pa sila kay God n gumawa sa kanila.. okey lang naman kung sa sarili nila aminin nila n gay sila hwag lang pagpilitan n babae talaga sila at mali talaga yun,..basta naiintindihan mo ang binabasa mo at nababasa mo okey lang yun,..porke shortcut hate mo na,. ang babaw mo naman,.. siguro hindi naman eto exam or a mga business proposals para correct ang pagkasulat at bawal magshortcut,.. ang perfect mo naman teh!!!this is just an opinion..
Di ba she joined Miss Universe? She should accept na kasali ang LGBT community sa universe !
gusto ko 'tong tweet ni @suzzy899: "thanks for the miriam roundup. wow, to think no one prayed harder for her ms. universe stint than the very community she's bashing."kasama na jan mga paminta, ladlad, at mga operada na nag-pray sa kani-kanilang mga Diyos na sana mananalo si MQ
Love and respect should be gender blind.
Ay wala naman palang offensive sa mga tweets ni Miriam. Sa mga tabloid at twitter kasi pinalaki na itong issue. The tweets weren't homophobic naman pala.
No offense but i find those overly religious people really freaky. I don't know what truth she's reffering to, to be honest.
jesus never mentioned anything about homosexuality. -fact
this is a fact. homosexuality was only mentioned twice in the old testament
source? the bible? yes because it's a book filled with "facts".
read the stories in bible again
They are just intimate on their relationship in God. Ganun lang yun. Hindi niyo yun maiintindihan kung di niyo alam o wala ideya kung ano ang intimate personal relationship kay God.
I hate Christians who, when asked to explain something, revert to:"Read the Bible and you'll find out"or"You'll never know because you've never experienced having an intimate relationship with God."I understand that some things cannot be fully explained. But sometimes, ask some basic questions that require a LITTLE bit of explanation or logic and these "Christians" clam up and revert to a holier-than-thou attitude.Not all of us are asking questions to argue. Some of us genuinely want to know. It just annoys me when, as someone who used to be super-religious but is now struggling with her faith, I ask a supposedly religious friend of mine about something and she gives me some run of the mill answer. I'm not looking for answers that are parroted from the Bible or religion class or a priest. I'm trying to get a deeper understanding, but apparently a number of "Christians" can't go that far.
Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I mean if this is how she feels about the LGBT community, it's a free country she does have the right to voice it out. Just like the LGBT have the right to be who they are and be their own self in the society. BUT, unfortunately, the LGBT is still seen as not the "norm" in society and unfortunately, still not accepted by so many. As for me, I love the LGBT community, I think they should not be judged by anyone for that matter because like us, they too, are humans. I am sure when you die and you are gay, God will not say, "I'm sending you to hell because you're gay." God is a Loving God and Im sure he will not judge us according to our sexual orientation but to what we did to our fellowmen. So, yeah as much as we have our own opinions, we should not be judging people but instead try to understand, reach out to them, and best of all HAVE FUN with them! Ang saya kaya kung may mga friends kang bading! Love u FP!
I'd rather be called a sinner who loves than a religious who knows nothing but hate!- Lala Lavandera
religion is the biggest scam of all time, why is there so many gods, allah, jesus, etc., and each of them wants you dead if you dont believe in their belief, leave the gays alone
aaaw i like you na! :P
Im a lesbian and my partner is a transman..i dont like it when people actually uses religion to judge or justify their beliefs. Wala pa namang namatay at nagbalik s mundong ito pra patunayan na totoo nga ang Bible at lhat ng nkapaloob dito. Its a known fact na mas madame pa nga msasama s simbahang sinasamba ng mga tao e. Pati church naiinfiltrate ng kasamaan. We live our life na walang tinatapakang ibang tao. We love and we care bout each other. Di gaya ng kramihan jan ngpapakasal peru nauuwe dn nmn s hiwalyan.. So whay happened to " what god joined together let no man separate" (?) im not sure bout the exact phrase.. I dont believe in God and I dont believe in the Bible.. But i have high respect for religion. Opinion nia yan peru at the end of the day sna think harder nman coz nde lhat ng akala mu tama ay tama nga.. No offense meant!
you don't believe in god? pano ka nabuo sa tiyan ng nanany mo? that alone is a miracle of god. ano ng ngyari sa mundo ntin? tsk tsk..
you don't believe in god, eh kung sbihin syo ng diyos na i don't believe you exist? may god have mercy on your soul..
I said i have high respect for religion. So i dont question it. So when I say I dont believe in God sna nmn u respect it too. People like me arent to be consider masama. Nagkataon lng po na mas malawak ang aming pangunawa at open kme s lht ng possiblities since like iv said wla p nmn nkkpgptunay. We were nvr givn a chance to choose our own beliefs. Lhat ng pnaniniwalaan nten ngaun lhat yan mga namana nten s mga magulang at mga kaninununuhan ntn. Ang point ku lng is may knakasama akong transgender and i know kng gaanu kahirap pra sknia ang mgfit in lalo na konti lng nkakaintndi. Sna lng mas mging sensitive tau s feelings ng iba lalo nat di nmn lhat alam ang mga pngdadaanan ng lgbt naiintndhan nio. Bein an lgbt isnt a choice. Ngpapakatotoo lng po kme. We only live once so we better live it to the fullest by being true to our heart and not to pretend to be someone others wants us to be just bcoz they think un ang tama..
i am not arguing your opinion related to your gender and i did not said that you are evil. if you read my comment, im just concerned about your opinion that you don't believe in god. i'll share this article to all atheists. if you still don't believe in god, i hope He'll enlighten your mind one day..An atheist professor of Philosophy was speaking to his class on the problem Science has with GOD. He asked one of his new Christian Students to stand and...Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son?Student : Yes, sir.Professor: So, you believe in GOD?Student : Absolutely, sir. Professor : Is GOD good?Student : Sure. Professor: Is GOD all powerful?Student : Yes. Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm? (Student was silent.) Professor: You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, young fella. Is GOD good? Student : Yes. Professor: Is satan good? Student : No. Professor: Where does satan come from? Student : From...GOD... Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world? Student : Yes.Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct? Student : Yes. Professor: So who created evil? (Student did not answer) Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?Student : Yes, sir. Professor: So, who created them? (Student had no answer.) Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD? Student : No, sir. Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?Student : No , sir.Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter? Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't. Professor: Yet you still believe in Him? Student : Yes. Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son? Student : Nothing. I only have my faith. Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
cont'.:Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat? Professor: Yes. Student : And is there such a thing as cold? Professor: Yes. Student : No, sir. There isn't. (The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.) Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. (There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.) Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness? Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you? Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man? Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed. Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how? Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey? Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do. Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir? (The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? (The class was in uproar.)Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? (The class broke out into laughter)Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir? (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The link between man and GOD is FAITH.That is all that keeps things alive and moving.P.S.I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you'll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won't you?Share this this to increase their knowledge ... or FAITH. By the way, that student was ALBERT EINSTEIN.
I came thru this article last year and i must admit it moved me not enough though to convert me. Whatever it is thats waiting for me in the end i take full responsblity for it. Thanks for sharing..
i just hope you see the truth in time :) people tend to search for the truth and rely on the principle "to see is to believe", but not everything you see is the truth and not everything you can't see is not :)
i don't find anything offensive with what she tweeted though!
ako din :)
It's not what she tweeted that was made a big issue, it's what she said in Bottomline that irked the lgbt community.
many of your readers are intelligent in giving their opinions. mabuhay ka F.P.!!!
Oh no Miriam?! Why o why?! You can't say "I respect you" then say "You're being fooled by the Devil" haha! Shucks. Please, you're a beauty queen and physical therapist by trade. You need more than that if you want your verbal diarrhea to be taken seriously. That said, keep tweets like this private. You can't just go around telling people they are being lied to by the devil - seriously. Now we know why you didn't win.
Religion is just a business. daming naniniwala sa false advertisement nila... yun lang.
Christianity is not a religion its a personal connection with God. :)
And another one bites the dust! You just proved @AnonymousApr 29, 2012 05:01 PM point
Miss U should be a contest for women. Those who were born women. Transgenders may want to be accepted in the society and be treated equally but in my opinion, joining beauty contest which were made for women is certainly not the way to achieve that equality. And I am not saying this to discriminate transgenders.
tama! what if sa transgender napunta yung question na "what is the essence of a woman?" pano nya masasagot yun na giving birth is the ultimate essence of a woman? i have so many gay friends pero sila din they don't think that transgenders should join Miss U, or any other pageants for women.. meron naman na silang mga pageants for gays, d pa makuntento?
So women who never gave birth never fulfilled their true essence as a woman? And as a corollary, would a man's true essence be to impregnate a woman?
yes, women who never gave birth never fulfilled their true essence as a woman. kaya nga may longing lahat ng babae if they've never given birth.. magagaya ng gays lahat ng kaya nilang gayahin sa babae, but they will never be able to give birth to a child..
"yes, women who never gave birth never fulfilled their true essence as a woman. kaya nga may longing lahat ng babae if they've never given birth.. "Haha. Not all women yearn to give birth. Sweeping generalizations, much? I find this comment extremely small-minded. Go out and see the world, not everyone feels this way.
really? so how did you know otherwise? it's you who should be the one to go out and see the world.. anyway my point is, a gays will always be gays no matter what they do, or change, or cut out from their bodies
this woman is a kunatic. isn't she divorced woman?

Reklamo kayo ng reklamo sa tweets ni MQ eh tingnan nyo nga ginagawa nyo, iniimpose nyo rin mga paniniwala nyo sa ibang tao. Do not shove your beliefs against other people kasi. Kung ayaw nila ng transgender sa Miss U, edi hayaan na natin. Kanya-kanyang opinion lang yan. Minsan tira kayo ng tira yung puntong tinutumbok nyo nakakalimutan nyo na. I have nothing against gay people. Alam ko ayaw nilang madiscriminate. Pero look at them right now. They discriminate against straight people. Ano yan
The thing is, she does not have the moral authority to make sweeping judgements about anyone. How would she feel if people talked about and made judgements about her marital woes, her decision to get a divorce or an annulment and what the Bible says about all that...
sa mga nabasa ko sa mga comment ngayon naniniwala na ako sa sinabi ng isang speaker (for professional and spiritual development coach) marami na nga ang hindi na nakaka intindi ng salitang "MORAL". Miriam Q. statement is true
Mirriam,dahil sa mga sinabi mo hihintayin ka na lang ng mga bekies na magkamali then all out bashing na ang mapapala mo. that's for sure! Maybe, kaya ganyan views nya kasi she was once married to a closet queen? She never said directly the reason why her marriage with the italian businessman failed...she just said PASSION from the guy's end started to fade when they married. Sabi nya, before they married, the guy was very passionate pero nung kasal na sila, nagbago daw yung guy. Baka feeling nya ginamit lang sya to cover up his true identity!!!!! hehe...hayaan nyo na si mirriam kasi may pinanggagalingan lang talaga yan hehe. Sobra nga lang talagang nakaka-turn off. I wonder if she's friends with any homosexual? For sure she is. Ano na lang iisipin ng mga kaibigan nyang homosexual??? All the while pala tingin mo sa buong pagkatao ko....kasalanan from the devil?!!!!! Poor girl!!!
i think may third party kaya sha nag end ang marriage nila...I guess she's entitled with her own opinion, di natin maiiwasan na may masaktan sa statements nya, she has her own free will to voice out whatever her opinions are. But again, she should be more sensitive with her statements. And I think she acknowledged it naman, there's no right or wrong with her statement, kumbaga kahit anong sagot nya there will always be a positive and a negative reaction from us...
oh come on mga beki its freedom thats give you the right na magladlad dito sa pilipinas while in middle east hindi yan puwede, now gusto niyo i contain si MQ for airing her opinion, hindi yun derogatory, sa tingin niyo lang dahil nasaktan kayo
Kung sabihin kaya ni Miriam na kampon ka ni satanas ok lang sayo? Hindi sya "derogatory"?
I LOVE YOU Anonymous Apr 30, 2012 05:49 AM!!!
hay sana makaabot sa langit ang BI nato para ang DIYOS na mismo ang magcomment ng matigil na kayong lahat!!!!....
First, these tweets probably came as a reaction to the whole transgendered women in Miss Universe issue. Let's discuss that. The premise to being a transgendered woman is that you believe that you are a woman, except for what your anatomy shows you (The anatomy, it is argued, only defines your SEX, but not GENDER). Unless one is willing to accept this premise, one can never reach the understanding of why transgendered women should be allowed to enter the competition.As to whether it should be acceptable to claim that transgendered women are indeed women, that can be left for an entirely separate discussion.Now, as to Miriam's claims of homosexuality being 'a lie from the devil', that is probably what her religion tells her. Bible verses can be quoted 'justifying' the hostility against homosexuals. Afterall, Leviticus says 'If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.' However, it is important to note that Leviticus also tells us that eating shellfish, some birds and some insects, are also an abomination. So, shall we just take what's convenient for us in The Bible and follow those? Why are we being selective in our beliefs? If The Bible should be quoted on what's evil and what's not, then kitakits na lang sa impyerno. We are all going to burn in hell.Which brings us to another point. Why is your God so hateful?Also, how does a Christian bring his/ her point across to a non-Christian? How do you tell a non-Christian that he is going to burn in hell if he does not believe in hell? How do you tell a non-Christian that he will not go to heaven if he prefers to go to hell if there is one, if going to heaven means hanging out with insufferable self-righteous Christians?As for me, at the end of the day, a person's life is going to be celebrated on what he has done to others, what he has turned himself to be, what his spirit has allowed him to become and to achieve -- and that should be true for homosexuals and heterosexuals alike.Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not every opinion is as well-informed, well-inspected as others'.

It's completely all right.. Freedom of Speech.. Minsan kasi tayo mga pinoy very sensitive.. sa kahit anong issues gusto agad i blow put of proportion... Im just new here in the US but I admire their freedom of speech...they respect each others opinion, they argue but at the end of the day, they discard whatever issues... kaya yung media dito kahit minsan ang presidente inii-spook but they are okay with it.. ganun talga demokrasya... sa atin konting saway lang sa presidente, mag rereact agad ang Malacanang... or if we filipinos are insulted we demand agad public apology... other nations, they say their piece then tapos... they move on.. tayo masyadong nag de dwell sa pagka sensitive natin... By the way this is just a piece of my mind.. no hostility please :)a
ang tanong ko.... ano kaya ang pinanggalingan ng pagiging very sensitive ng mga pilipino as in OA tayo madaling mainsulto at medyo bayolente kung mag react sa mga opinyon ng ibang tao as in matalinong obobs at laging defensive kailangan tama palagi? pero ginagawa lamang natin ito sa kapwa pinoy bakit kaya?
Great question. Human nature talaga ng lahat na ayaw magpatalo pero mas grabe lang talaga sa pinoy kasi maybe nakadikit yung self worth natin to what others say about us. Kasi kung secure ka with who u are, i-trash talk ka pa e dedma ka parin kasi u know who u are.
Well, walang masama dyan sa tweet na yan. Wag tayo OA mga teh.
There are far worse things that are made and have been said against homosexuals. MQ's tweets are not one of them. I think what she said are still made out of love. Peace y'all.
i wonder if LADLAD has any statement on this matter. i think M watched the interview with Bemz, the first nominee of LADLAD partylist, with kuya Boy (Bottomline) and these twits were some of her reactions. now, have you seen the photos circulated in FB poking fun at her?
kasi naman, tanggapin na natin na di na acceptable ang mga jetut2 posts ngayon. ung kay mega aminin nyo, part ng kinainisan nyo ung pa-jetut2 at satanas nya.off naman kasi talaga to post your religious beliefs online, na-combine pa na targeted ang religious belief nya sa isang marginal and colorful and quite expressive group, = bomba! we're all entitled to each one's religious opinions, but not for online consumption. i suppose each one's religious beliefs is very personal, parang panty o toothbrush yan, you can flaunt it but its "ugh." and if you force it on people, nakakainis.i'm annoyed at her for the first comments, but the woman did apologize. seems sincere. patawarin na yan.
she sounds just like her mommieeeee...--parloristang shumbilina
totoo naman ang sinabi ni ms.miriam quiambao. no hurt feelings nalang kumbaga.just accept the truth na mayroon dakilang diyos na mag-guide sa atin. marami na kasing malalaswang bading dito sa mundo.
kaso, nilahat niya. kung may malaswa at offending na bading, mas madami ang kagalanggalang at kapakipakinabang.
i read somewhere that going to church doesn't make you a christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. With this in mind, may i ask, if a transgender dresses up as a woman, and have all these injections, etc. would that make her a woman? If transgenders are allowed in the Ms. Universe pageant, then why not also allow the dogs and the cats to join in? I see no difference. Do you? Even without the belief of God, this kind of thinking is psychotic.
the change in ms. universe is that it has redefined the criteria. how feeble that we think judges will automatically make a transgender win and represent a country. i think this pronouncement of the ms. universe contest is lip service an merely just a way to generate interest.
if someone thinks that he is a cat, and he tatooes himself with fur, and whiskers, does that make him a cat? can he join a cat contest because he thinks he's a cat? if someone thinks he is a car, he wears something red, and put on wheels, does that make him a car? can he join a car contest? if someone thinks he is a woman, is he really a woman?
so, what's your point? perhaps, you think your words can project profoundness but you're no different from the idea you're expressing in your analogies. anyway, your line follows: so, when one prays and professes the faith, it makes him a religious/christian/catholic/etc. even if his/her other actions hurt others.
All transgenders live in denial. Transgenders are gay.
Whether who/what you are, there will always be someone who will discriminate against you. Even as simple as having gap toothed may not get you the job you applied for just bec the HR person is shallow and puts a lot of emphasis on outward appearance rather than skills.I am a gay guy and there will always be people who will not be accepting of who you are. BUT if you are stripped of basic rights like right to vote bec you are LGBT then that's a diff story. With Miriam's opinion, that is simply her opinion/belief and i really do not think it's below the belt offensive. She in fact stated that God loves the gays and it is not a sin..and that says a lot already. It is so unnecessary for the LGBT group to ask her to publicly apologize..i mean she did not say that LGBT should all die and shouldn't be given any rights at all. On the Jenna Talackove/Ms. U case, it really is out of line to allow transgenders to join..not because i am against them but it just does not meet with the criteria. Even women born female who are above/below the age/height requirement or had given birth are disqualified. Not accepting transgenders in the said competition does not mean the general public hates them. So will they now allow women born female to join Miss Gay??
I totally agree with everything that you wrote. I am not against homosexuals, not at all, but I disagree that they should be allowed to join MISS whatever pageants. As you stated, there are rules, and rules should be followed. They may be female in mind, and now, even in body, but if not BORN female, they shouldn't be allowed to join. I don't understand why that should even be debated on, it's COMMON SENSE. Gays/homosexuals/transgenders have their own pageants, they can shine there. Plus, I sincerely doubt they would allow a genetically born female to enter their own beauty contests. Personally, I expected Miriam Q's comments to be much more offensive than they really are. I found them to be quite tame. She is probably surprised herself that they caused quite a stir. But then again, I am a heterosexual, so I can't really comment.
Great! i'm gay and u are str8 and somehow we meet in the middle!I think Donald Trump just said yes let them join just to easily dodge a bullet bec he can influence the judges later on to not make them win para case closed..like saling pusa lang sila.. harsh but there is some truth to it.
Explain why is it wrong to correct a problem with one's body when it has a valid biological reason? Why is it wrong to align one's body with their mind when it will make the person happy. Is it wrong to be happy? It may not be right for some people. For example, homosexual men (different from transsexuals) are happy with their gender, they just prefer men as partners. Transsexuals need the procedures as a medical treatment. It's a medical fact confirmed by the DSM handbook.
pwede ba, gusto lang ni mirriam magpa kontrobersyal para pag usapan sya kasi laos na sya..
la ocean deep na nga siya...kaya siguro siya hindi nanalodeserve niya yon....sino ba mentor nya sa bb. pilipinas?babae b? lalake b? sino kaya gumawa at gumagawa ng mga gowns niya and dresses?babae b? lalake b?eh ang make-up and hair niya?babae ba? lalake ba?Love one anotheryan ang nabasa ko bible na sinabi ni Jesus Christbaka di pa nababasa yan ni Meriam nagparetoke ng ilong
