Kris Aquino shared her honest thoughts on the Catholic Church’s teaching that a validly married couple should not be allowed to get a divorce.
KAMI learned that Kris admitted to not agreeing with this particular teaching of the Church despite being a Catholic.
According to the actress-host, she would allow divorce in the Philippines if she becomes the President for one day.
She explained that going through the annulment process with former husband James Yap was a terrible experience that she does not want other people to go through.
The Catholic Church does not allow divorce but it allows annulment, the process of proving that a married couple has not been validly married in the first place.
Kris also said sorry to the LGBTQ+ community, telling them that the Philippines is still far away from having same-sex marriage approved.
“I’m sorry, Catholic Church, please don’t get mad at me. For one day, I want to be President – on the day na ira-ratify na magkakaroon ng divorce sa Philippines, para pirmahan.
“My reason is simple, because you wouldn’t be annulled in the church. Your church marriage, it’s a different process, but I believe that going through an annulment is a very difficult process, and it’s expensive.
“I believe that women and men should have equal rights about this. I apologize sa mga LGBT, kasi, alam kong malayong-malayo pa ang kailangan nating lakbayin bago magkaroon ng same-sex marriage. Pero ang divorce… sa sagot kong ‘yan, ha, alam niyo na!
“Hindi ako tatakbo for anything in 2022! Pero ayoko nang pagdaanan ever again o ng kahit na sino man, ‘yung proseso ng pagpapa-annul. Kasi, puwede naman talaga ang divorce. And separation naman talaga ‘yan, eh, of church and state,” Kris said in a video from the Cornerstone talent management.
