What a weakling. Sad, pathetic little man. Being able to beat people up is not strength. Being able to lift people up is strength.
Being filipino, I have yet to see a family shun their gay son or lesbian daughter. I have a “tom boy” cousin in my family and she has only felt love and acceptance from our family. But filipino Catholics are…you know those videos that come out at Easter of short brown people crucifying themselves? Yeah, they are filipino. Freaking Spain couldn’t keep to themselves.
Well there goes any hope of gay marriage in the Phillipines. What’s that? There was no hope anyway? Oh yeah… right. Where’s that ‘MEH’ button again?
I think what people fail to understand about this is that Manny Pacquiao is from the Philippines, obviously the culture there differs from ours greatly. I’m Filipino-American, and although I do keep a lot of my culture, my faith in the church isn’t as strong as my parents tried to raise me or the way that they and most other Filipinos were raised. I think his beliefs are strongly influenced by that. So for people getting their panties in a knot, calm down. The Philippines hasn’t experienced something like this yet. Not many people are speaking out about gay marriage, and it is what it is there. So for now, while beliefs there are strongly religious and no one really pays attention to gay rights, his opinion will probably stay the same. Someday their country might become as developed as ours and it’ll matter more. But for now that’s how it is.
