Skip to comments.[Boxer Manny] Pacquiao rips Obama's views on gays
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)

This should be emphasized more often. Or, homosexuality is an abomination to society.
Xactly! Go Manny, Go Manny, Go Manny!
I wonder if he will ever fight again.
I saw on Hannity last night that Black Preachers told Obama the same thing.
He figuratively punched Obama above his weight class.
PC is the new persecution of Christians by the new pagans.
“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.
I’m not going to argue with him on ANY subject..
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.
right as rain...
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.
Only one way to solve this......
Let's get ready to RUUMMMMBBLLLLLEEEEEEEEE

MANNY! MANNY! MANNY! Now I REALLY like this guy!
Just think, if we’d kept the Philippines, we could’ve been running Pacquiao for President. ;-)
GO Pacquiao this guy ROCKS!! FINALLY someone famous saying what we are all thinking..good for him!
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.
“A shame it looks like he and Mayweather will never fight, both are past their primes now. I didnt 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.
And yes, they are both ducking each other.
