Pacquiao Taking Blows from LGBT Over Comment on Same Sex Marriage

Pambansang Kamao senatorial candidate Manny Pacquiao is in hot water after anti same-sex union remarks on a video saying that people in same-sex relationships are “worse than animals”.

The eight times world champion's personal belief as a conservative christian provokes disappoinment to LGBT community.

It’s common sense,Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female. If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals.

The lines above are the most significant part of the video that draw attention from netizens especially to LGBT Community.

Perez Hilton a blogger posted on his blog:

"What?! Why do people have to compare homosexuality to animals?! WHY??

Look, if your religious beliefs prevent you from accepting same-sex marriage, that's on you. That's YOUR idea of propriety.

But there's absolutely no call to demonize and denigrate gay people by comparing them to animals just because their love is something YOU'RE unable to accept.

The sad thing here is that Pacquiao is world famous and a national hero as a boxer, so we can only guess he'll win his election to the Senate pretty easily — and then spread this awful attitude around within his country."

Dan Remoto of Ladlad Party-list said that Pacquiao's comments showed he had a shallow understanding of issues important to the LGBT community.

Please do NOT vote for so-called Rep. Manny Pacquiao for senator of this land. His anti-LGBT statement betray a shallow...

Vice Ganda a gay comedian also reacted on his twitter posted:

The LGBT is a group of people. We are humans. But not animals. Though we're no saints we will pray for Manny Pacquiao.

Meanwhile,Pacquiao on his facebook post he explained that he is just telling the truth of what the bible says.

I rather obey the Lord's command than obeying the desires of the flesh. I'm not condemning anyone, but I'm just telling the truth of what the Bible says. The truth from the Bible is what changed me from my old ways.
1 Corinthians 6:9 " Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
God Bless everyone i love you all.
