Boxer Manny Pacquiao Blasts Obama Over Same-Sex Marriage, Cites Scripture Saying Gays Should Be Put to Death

Filipino boxer and politician Manny Pacquiao, who Forbes named the #4 most influential athlete in the world this year, is speaking out against Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage, citing Biblical scripture that gays should be put to death.

PacquaioThe Conservative Examiner reports:

Pacquiao's directive for Obama calls societies to fear God and not to promote sin, inclusive of same-sex marriage and cohabitation, notwithstanding what Leviticus 20:13 has been pointing all along: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

Pacquiao, bearing a conservative stance on the Reproductive Bill which is still pending in the Philippine Congress for approval even after contemptuous debates, believes the sweeping campaign of Obama favoring the gays and lesbians to legally marry is nothing more than a direct attack on the moral society and against the creative power and will of God.

Pacquiao continues: "God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other."

"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."

America should be the model of morality for other countries to emulate and must have the responsibility to uphold the Scripture to the highest order of God's command, he adds.

  6. Almost too funny to respond to. Some dimwit who has been punched in the head too many times, is now speaking for God, and God often talked in the Bible about being "legally married."

    Shut up, go back to your backwards place in the world and live your life how ever you want. But don't preach to anyone else when you're this overtly stupid, most likely brain damaged, ill-informed, unable to discern Bible passages nor able to understand their historical context and a regressive clown that people like to watch get bloodied up.

  7. OMG, where do I begin? So he thinks he's a godly man for being a violent boxer??! Do tell, Mr. boxer, how is your "sport" godly? What a blind hypocrite. And this coming from a guy who's country is Catholic and way overpopulated because they don't believe in birth control, hence LOTS of poverty, a few very wealthy. God's country. Disgusting. I'm at a loss....

  10. He talks of the "altar of matrimony". I thought good Christians have only one God, but now matrimony also has an alter? Is it just like God's, bigger or smaller? Too many blows to the head doesn't help ones thought process does it.

  13. WE could all Biblical on HIM: Leviticus 19:28 "'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD." Pot meet kettle...

  14. Religious groups and the GOP have suppressed the rights of the Gay and Lesbian community for FAR too long. It was about time a public official like Obama stood up for this human rights issue while Mitt Romney hides behind Red State Religion and his Magic Mormon Underwear. See Mitt in his sacred undergarments praying for enough money to buy this election so he can spread his bigotry and homophobia at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html

  16. SORRY -- but this reminds me why I often find Gay Filipinos hard for me to get along with. They have been raised in a damaging culture that supports an idiot like Manny, while I come from the plain talkers.

  17. I'm sorry, Manny. Seems you have forgotten that we are not a Christian country, but a secular one. Our country is under no such obligation.

  18. Manny WHO? Wanders over to the Forbes article. Ah, I see. Nope, none are influential in my part of the world because they are totally unknown. Only one I ever heard of is that Tebow fellow. By accident that is and I may be one of a handfull in my country.

    It's all about real football here, you know ;)...

  23. It's worth noting that a large casino here in CA has annoyed the crap out of me with a Manny Pacquiao commercial for months and months.

    I'm going to make sure that this Casino knows that I wont be coming as long as they keep him (and I like my slots).
