Manny Pacquiao Punches Back at Critics

World renowned boxer.

Legislator.

And now a culture critic facing a backlash as he attacked homosexuality as unnatural. He then shared that marriage is for only one man and one woman.

Pro-homosexual groups condemned his remarks, and later the boxer apologized.

One of his corporate sponsors, Nike, dropped him after his remarks, citing their opposition to every form of discrimination. Pacquiao, a growing heavyweight in Filipino politics, learned the hard way how fast social media can spread one’s message on anything.

Still, he respects Nike’s decision to end their relationship.

But he does not apologize for standing up for Biblical truth.

The Filipino legislator, who is now running for a senate seat (and may run for President) affirmed that it is more important for people “to hear the truth.”

“I still stand on my belief that I’m against same-sex marriage because of what the Bible says, but I’m not condemning LGBT. I love you all with the love of the Lord.”

  1. I wish more public figures had the courage to take a stand for their Christian (Biblical) beliefs. To be against homosexuality is not to be against the homosexual. God the Father loves all us sinners. He proved it when God the Son died for our sins and rose victorious over death.
    The best thing Christians can do this year is vote. Vote for people like Pacquiao who hold to Biblical truth. Vote for the people who most closely hold to your values. And if necessary, vote against the people or person you really, really don’t want in office.
