PARANAQUE CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles ) – Popular Philippine actress and City Councilor Alma Moreno, in a recent television interview with Karen Davila, host of ANC’s Headstart, categorically stated that she is against same-sex marriage and believes that it is a ‘sin.’
Moreno, chairperson of the Philippine Councilors League, is running as senator under United Nationalist Alliance (UNO), led by presidential candidate Vice President Jejomar Binay.
Moreno had starred in a number of revealing movies that were box office hits, earning her the title “Sex Goddess of Philippine Movies” of the 1970s and 1980s.
Fondly called “Ness” in show business, Moreno had a long, live-in relationship with action star Rudy Fernández, with whom she had a son, actor Mark Anthony Fernandez.
She also figured in another high-profile live-in affair with the “King of Comedy”, Dolphy, which produced a son, former child actor, Vandolph.
Moreno later married actor-politician Joey Marquez. Their twelve-year union produced four children: Yeoj, Winwyn (Teresita Ssen), VJ, and adopted daughter, Em-Em; their marriage was annulled in 2004.
She wed Sultan Fahad “Pre” Salic, Mayor of Marawi City in 2009 in a traditional Muslim Nikah and they divorced in 2014.
So clearly, Moreno — who kept invoking the name of the ‘Lord’ throughout the interview — is not just against same-sex marriage, but ALL marriage, including hers. Actions speak louder than words.
