Manny Pacquiao Loves Everything...Except Gay Marriage
Manny Pacquiao loves everything. He loves his wife, his country, his kids, his fans. Hell, Manny Pacquiao even loves his opponents. But if there’s one thing that Manny Pacquiao doesn’t love (aside from Floyd Mayweather) it’s same-sex marriages.
Ever since Barack Obama publicly supported same-sex marriages, many have come out against the President and there is some concern that Obama could lose some support because of his stance. One of those people that are opposed to Obama’s decision to back gay marriage is none other than Filipino congressman and eight weight division boxing champion.
In an interview with the Examiner, the Pac-Man decided to deliver the KO punch to Obama by running down the President’s views and leaning on his catholic upbringing as the reason why he can’t side with Obama’s viewpoint.
“God’s words first … obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man,” Pacquiao said in the interview. In the Filipino’s eyes, promoting same-sex marriage is a cardinal sin. Marriage is only for a man and woman and Pacquiao is having none of Obama favoring the gay community.
“God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other,” he continued. ”It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of Old.”
Pacquiao continued bashing the initiative to legalize gay marriage by calling it an “abomination” and suggested that Obama should read the “manual of life” for better living. Nobody should be too surprised by Pacquiao’s bible thumping as an interview with Freddie Roach by Steve Kim on Maxboxing revealed that Pacquaio has discarded many of his “vices” and now attends bible study three times a day. It’s Pacquiao’s newfound commitment to his Lord and Savior that has changed the fighter’s stance and life. He’s far more aggressive about his religion now than he ever has been in the past.
Nevertheless, we’ll see what happens the next time Pacquiao is invited to the White House.
