When Pope John Paul II formally apologized for the persecution of Galileo, it was an apology that took the Catholic Church more than 300 years to make.
If it also needs 300 years for the Catholic Church to apologize for the persecution of LGBT people, then there is no better time for LGBT activists to start working on this but today. And there is a great opportunity today to open minds and provide accurate information to refute the statements of Dr. Ligaya Anacta Acosta, regional director of Human Life International (HLI) Asia and Oceania, that appeared on two different articles.
In the article "Being portrayed as oppressed is best way to public sympathy, homosexual activists told," Acosta asked the following questions:
Acosta must rethink her conclusions because they are based on a distorted version of reality. Otherwise, it would do her well to actually talk to the gay media personalities she is referring to and ask them what kind of oppression they had to go through (and are still going through) before reaching their current status.
Acosta has also claimed that the "homosexual revolution" is political as it is based on a "Marxist mold. In the article "'Homosexuals are born that way' theory long debunked," the article supports her claim with the following statement:
"Another significant incident in the history of the homosexual agenda was the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental disorders by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), which turned out to be a political move rather than one based on findings of scientists."
Acosta is then quoted as saying:
Acosta must present compelling scientific evidence to support the inclusion of homosexuality in that list. If she cannot, then it is irrelevant if the move to take homosexuality off the list is political in nature or not.
If I may make a suggestion, Acosta may want to start with MMK's story of Vice Ganda. He went through hell when he was younger because of his identity as a homosexual.
dboncan, the HLI group that Acosta works for has already been repeatedly caught lying about its data. Its less a health agency, and more a conservative think tank that pretends to be intellectual.
Dr. Acosta is no different - she subscribes to their rhetoric quite openly, despite the fact that her organization has zero credibility.
Those are the tactics of a bigot, dboncan - I've seen enough of it to be certain, and to realize that you, much like Ligaya, are ass-pulling your statements.

Dr. Ligaya Acosta HLI Regional Director of Asia and Oceania. Full bio.
by Ligaya Acosta, Ph.D.
Missionary work, though a privilege, can be exhaustive, but time is of the essence as Dr. Ligaya Acosta, HLI Director of Asia and Oceania, attests. Promoting the value and beauty of every human person is imperative in countries gripped by secularism - where little or no protections exist to defend life and where religious freedom is non-existent. Such is the case in Taiwan, where Dr. Acosta arrived on October 13 with HLI President Father J. Shenan Boquet.
