    Last Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 11:07 am, Filipino facebook user [name redacted] posted a picture which presented a personal version of the acronym “SOGIE” in relation to conservative religious views on the SOGIE Bill, which [name redacted] is strongly against.

    The picture is mainly text upon the backdrop of a Satanic lady with horns in a red dress and a pentagram of bones. The acronym reads:

    “S- atanic
    O- rganization of
    G- odless people who are
    I- nspired of
    E- vil thoughts”

    It ends with the statement, “Anyone who supported this, are in Demonic Possession.”

    This is clearly a baseless attack on the LGBTQ++ community and their supporters, directly relating support of the SOGIE Bill to Satanism and painting this community as evil. [Name redacted] is generalizing them putting prejudice on them by claiming to have religious authority. This acronym is not even official, and just [name redacted]’s personal invention.
