Miriam Quiambao says sorry to LGBT community for her comments on homosexuality

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that former beauty queen Miriam Quiambao "apologized to the the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community on Sunday (April 29) after a Twitter war erupted over her comments about homosexuality."

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that former beauty queen Miriam Quiambao "apologized to the the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community on Sunday (April 29) after a Twitter war erupted over her comments about homosexuality." Quiambao posted this tweet on her official Twitter page late Sunday night: "I’m sorry LGBT. Perhaps I was too harsh with the words I used. Will do my best to be more sensitive. #respect #nobodysperfect."

 

The debacle began after the the Saturday (April 28) episode of The Bottomline. Quiambao, who was one of the guest panelists on the Boy-Abunda-hosted show, was asked to "give her take on the issue of religion and its relationship with LGBTs." Quiambao had said, "I’m not a pastor, I'm definitely not an expert but the way I understand it is homosexuality is not the one that makes you a sinner. Actually, sexual immorality is what makes you a sinner."

 

Later, on her Twitter page, Quiambao had also said: "Hate the sin. Love the sinner. We have all sinned... Forgiveness comes from God. Grace comes to those who believe. Peace. Homosexuality is not a sin but it is a lie from the devil. Do not be deceived. God loves gays and wants them to know the truth." (Note: This statement is a consolidation of two separate tweets.) Some of Quiambao’s followers didn’t like what she said and told her so.
