[Boxer Manny] Pacquiao rips Obama's views on gays
Fox Sports ^ | May 15, 2012

Posted on 05/15/2012 1:39:17 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has come out swinging against US President Barack Obama's personal endorsement of same-sex marriage.

In an interview with the National Conservative Examiner, the religious Pacquiao said Obama's view was nothing more than a direct attack on the morals of society and the will of God.

"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 said.

"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," he added, citing the Bible.

Recently voted Forbes' fourth most influential athlete, the Filipino described same-sex marriage as an "abomination" and went on to say that America should be the model of morality for other countries to emulate.

Pacquiao, currently the World Boxing Organization welterweight champion and regarded by many as the best pound-for-pound boxer on the planet, already has a burgeoning career out of the ring. He is a member of the Philippines legislature, hosts a weekly TV game show and has his own vegetable business. He is also hoping to become a leading Christian evangelist after having a religious "awakening."(continued)

. . . . like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah . . .

This should be emphasized more often. Or, homosexuality is an abomination to society.

No Wonder Merriweahter is afraid of him.

I saw on Hannity last night that Black Preachers told Obama the same thing.

He figuratively punched Obama above his weight class.

When the Bible elevates a sin to “abomination” status as it has homosexual behavior dissent against the “normalization” of the unnatural is only righteous.

PC is the new persecution of Christians by the new pagans.

With all the talking intellectuals in our conservative media
and body politic it takes a boxer to tell it like it is.

“Obama’s view was nothing more than a direct attack on the morals of society and the will of God.”

Bravo Mr. Manny Pacquiao!

Manny Pacquaio is very nearly the same sort of proposition which Duran was i.e. I'd expect him to annihilate Mayweather in less than ten rounds. I mean nobody his own size is going to take him any time soon.

Being a pervert is a choice, no matter what Obama thinks. A man is called upon by nature to be a man. If he chooses otherwise, oh well!

I’ll tell you, the Democrats emphasis on gay marriage is a big mistake. I hope they keep doing it.

When I first saw commercials about him, I didn’t know enough to form an opinion - I’m starting to really like this guy.

HOORAY Manny Pacquiao! The skinny con-man is above his pay grade and out of his weight class. The punk is below mini flyweight or strawweight...he’s like weedweight.

Just think, if we’d kept the Philippines, we could’ve been running Pacquiao for President. ;-)

He’s a habitual party switcher. The current party he’s aligned with (he has his own local party) is the center left but socially conservative PDP-LABAN.

A shame it looks like he and Mayweather will never fight, both are past their primes now. I didn’t see his last fight but people think he should have lost. Boxing is so messed up.

Who would you take? This thread is pro-Manny obviously but I think Mayweather is just a better boxer.

I think they are both ducking each other but the consensus seems to be that Mayweather is more reluctant.

I agree with you that I think Mayweather is the better boxer, but in the end, Pacquiao would beat him.

And yes, they are both ducking each other.
