The governor of Mindoro Oriental also on Tuesday declared Amadeus Fernando Parkinte, better known as drag artist Praluca Vega, persona non grata in the province.
Board member Roland Ruga announced in an email on Wednesday, August 30 that the board had adopted a resolution at its 53rd meeting on Tuesday. Calapan City Councilman Ronalee Leachon, who chairs the committee’s Coalition of Councilors, submitted the resolution she authored on Aug. 24.
A copy of the resolution obtained by Lichin’s office states: “The province is a [community] of Christian believers that values every Christian who at all times respects the originality, sanctity and sanctity of the Lord’s Prayer ‘Ama’ Personal. Namin.'” ‘Our Father’. “
“The viral video of Perkint dancing in a bar depicting Jesus of Nazareth dancing to a remix of ‘Ama Namin’ has not only caught the attention of Catholics but ‘the entire Christian faith. and/or other Christian denominations, his actions are intolerable, divisive, and do nothing to promote respect for our cultural diversity and our prevailing religious beliefs and traditions,” he said in the resolution.
Lichin said that despite repeated calls for a public apology, “this individual (Pura Luca Vega) has shown no remorse.”
Oriental Mindoro is the 17th local government to list drag artists as undesirable.
Ruga said the premier also responded to Humerlito Dolor’s Aug. 27 application letter.
“On July 10, drag artist Pura Luka Vega uploaded a video showing a performance of the Lord’s Prayer in a costume depicting a black Nazarene. His post outraged the public, Some even called it sacrilegious, profane and disrespectful,” Dolor said in the letter.
