Statement of Sen. Bam Aquino on Pope Francis

May the visit of Pope Francis here in our country inspire us to deepen our understanding and tolerance towards other faiths, minority groups and the marginalized.

Just as the Holy Father advocates for unity and respect among different religions, let us follow his lead by looking beyond color, race, faith, age, sex and gender preference.

Instead of building walls, we need to create more bridges that will unite us, as we are all Filipinos.

We continue to work on inclusiveness in our society as we push for the BBL law, Anti-Discrimination bill and other policies that promote the welfare and opportunity of every Filipino, including the poor and the other sectors of society.
