ABS-CBNNews.com reports that an official of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has reacted on Charice's decision to "come out" as a lesbian, saying that the Filipina international singer is "experiencing an identity crisis."

 

The report quoted Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the CBCP's Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, as saying in an interview published in the Manila Bulletin on Monday that the public should "not pre-judge" Charice during this time as she is "experiencing an identity crisis regarding her sexual orientation." Castro added that the singer's family and friends "should come in and intervene to help her" realize that "having a same-sex attraction does not mean that she has to engage in a (homosexual) relationship."

 

The article noted that "while the Catholic Church in the Philippines does not condemn homosexuality, it does not tolerate homosexual acts."
