The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) wants to ban some pop songs from radio stations, which includes the latest hit “Banana” song by Blanktape and “Nagmamahal ako ng bakla.”
Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez, who also heads the Committee on Public Affairs of CBCP said that the lyrics of those songs have double meaning. “Kailangan itigil na ang paglabas ng mga ganitong uri ng musika. Those should be banned. Dinudumihan nito ang isip ng mga kabataan instead of promoting the concept of morality.” he said.
The bishop also called on music composers to think first of the negative effects of the lyrics to the young listeners in composing their piece.
