Manny Pacquiao is a bigot?

16 May

It’s everywhere. Yup, Manny Pacquiao quotes Leviticus 18:22 and every practicing LGBT screams “discrimination!”

Now, I don’t know why you or your spritual adviser Pastor Jeric Soriano decided to say or quote the verse but what’s done is done. I can only wonder how can you defend yourself after this.

The problem I see is that it’s so easy for Manny to throw verses as fast as he throws punches. However, when countered with another Bible verse (or name-calling, or some other reaction/tweet/etc.), I’m not so sure how his theological training (if any) could respond to it.

While I support his views on this matter, he’s certainly not a very good poster boy for explaining why he takes the position of protecting heterosexual marriage. He only comes out a puppet for whatever his spiritual director says and believes — not an intelligent, rational Christian who can defend his position well.

P.S. The Church has this covered. CCC 2357, 2358, and 2359
