RESPECT HUMAN RIGHTS, PROTECT HUMAN LIFE

RESPECT HUMAN RIGHTS, PROTECT HUMAN LIFE

The Church’s assertion of the basic human rights of the people in the present Philippine context is pressing and the participation of the Church members in the protection of these rights necessitates sustained and committed ethical response for the strategic work for just and humane society. As a Church, we ascribe to the provisions of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which has its 73rd anniversary on December 10. We uphold the inalienable rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled, regardless of race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status.
