Bro. Eddie’s Christian coalition protests vs LGBT bill

/ 07:34 AM March 08, 2018

A coalition of Christian groups, led by Jesus Is Lord movement founder Brother Eddie Villanueva, held a rally outside the Senate on Wednesday to protest against the passage of a bill that aims to protect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community from discrimination but which the coalition said was “against the will of God.”

Thousands of members of the Christian Coalition for Righteousness, Justice and Truth attended the rally and held up banners saying “We respect LGBT, no need for the Sogie bill” and “Konstitution Sapat Na, Sogie Bill Huwag Na.”
