Resolution Urging the Passage of H.B. 2141
Calling for the Creation of a Moral Commission
General Assembly
21-27 May 1962

 

The United Church of Christ in the Philippines, at its Eight Biennial General Assembly, composed of leaders among ministers and laymen from all parts of the Philippines, now convened in Cebu City;

 

NOTING           the great concern and earnest desire of those they represent part toward the Moral Regeneration of our people;

 

NOTING           further that this is one goal in which all groups whether religious, civic or governmental have a common stake and interest;

 

KNOWING        that the fight against vice of all forms, more particularly gambling, while slavery, traffic, prostitution, and all other forms of traffic in person is one of the major objectives of civic and religious groups, which the government would want to assist and intensify;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, the delegates, assembled at this Eight General Assembly, hereby resolve to urge the Congress of the Philippines to pass at an early date H.B. 2141 which would create a Moral Commission which has been initiated by the executive department of the government;

 

IT IS RESOLVED, further, that copies of this resolution be sent to the President of the Philippines, members of the Congress of the Philippines, the head of the office of local government at Malacanang, and to all ministers of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines so  that all efforts may be directed jointly by these recipients towards the early passage and the effective implementation of the measure.
